Critic Reviews for CSI: NY Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (15)

I couldn't keep my eyes off Gary Sinise, who plays well-dressed Detective Mac Taylor with extraordinary intensity that is never over the top.

Nov 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Gary Sinise has the requisite mien of a CSI investigator: pasty, sleep-deprived and grim, like Miami's David Caruso or Las Vegas' inimitable William Petersen.

Top Critic

CSI: NY looks good, and Sinise carries the show effortlessly. But the show needs work, and it needs time.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The episode is photographed and written with an off-putting self-importance; it badly gloms onto recent events to explain a character's suffering.

Sep 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Scene by scene, Sinise silently begs for your empathy with every inch of his stage-trained talents. He'll get to you.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Sinise, an Emmy-winning character actor (George Wallace), has tough acts to follow in William Petersen and David Caruso, but he draws viewers to his character by giving him a low-key professionalism tinged with sadness.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

One of the things that gets me about this show, as it is with all of the CSI shows, is the cold, clinical efficiency with which the characters approach their jobs.

Dec 5, 2005 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Introduced one of the major flaws of the series: the attempt to make us care about its characters' personal lives by giving them random snatches of "revealing" dialogue.

Nov 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Though Stella's newfound spunk was a delicious treat... New York still needs to unravel the secret to making a crime captivating.

Nov 14, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

But there's no doubt Sinise offers a perfect template for personal asides and emotional subtexts, murky detours that may occasionally cloud -- and liven up -- all that steamrolling, high-tech efficiency.
