Summary of "The 1st Season: Special Widescreen Edition - Available in Widescreen!":
Well, this was a very entertaining journey into the past. CBS/Paramount did an excellent job of updating the release for the HD format, adding new bonus material, including old material, correcting the aspect ratio problem, and rolling out some great BD-Live features. My only complaint with the BD-Live content is that some people, strange as it may seem, haven't seen the show before, and the content displayed would contain some spoilers for them.

Even if you have the first season on DVD, there are lots of reasons to revisit it on Blu-ray. (read entire review)

The Complete 4th Season - I love this show (10/16/2004)

Summary of "The Complete 4th Season - I love this show":
Something weird happened to me while I watched season 4 during the initial broadcast; I got C.S.I. overload. I started confusing the stories in the two shows, and I gave up. Yup, I stopped watching one of my favorite shows. No big loss though since I have the DVD set sitting here and I was able to watch the episodes I missed (about half the season). I think I'm going to stick to watching the show on DVD from now on. Can you blame me for wanting to see the show in widescreen, and listen to it in Dolby Digital 5.1 audio? I didn't think so.

Summary of "The Complete 3rd Season - Nice":
CSI is such a great show, and these DVDs are very nice. It pains me to watch the 4x3 broadcasts when I know these glorious DVDs will be released with nicer picture and sound. These things really need a "play all" feature - with the number of DVDs Paramount is releasing I can't believe they haven't caught on yet. It's one feature that ALL TV sets should have.

I think fans of the show will agree - this is the way we should be watching the episodes. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 2nd Season - Greatly improved!":
Here's a piece I wrote in my first season review:
    "For such a popular show, I was expecting something more from this release. This is the type of show that could have some killer commentary tracks from technical advisors and the cast and crew. There could have been a great featurette on the science of the show, but instead we get a promotional featurette. Maybe CBS Video thought the show would sell itself, and they're probably right. Maybe we'll get more when the second season is released."
It looks like someone at CBS was listening, because what I wished for came true with this release. We have 3 wonderful commentary tracks, a bunch of featurettes with some meat in them and the audio and video have been beefed up. This is what the first season set should have been. My only complaint with this set comes from the horrible font used for the special features. "MS Comic" is a font that should never be used; definitely not in something found on a DVD set. I did nicer looking titles when I was in college, and my stuff was pretty ugly. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Great show, alright release":
If you're in Canada and looking for this release, you're out of luck. Alliance Atlantis owns the Canadian distribution rights and have released two sets in Canada, the second part of the first season was released on March 18th, a week before this one. If you want this release you'll need to import it from the US.

For such a popular show, I was expecting something more from this release. This is the type of show that could have some killer commentary tracks from technical advisors and the cast and crew. There could have been a great featurette on the science of the show, but instead we get a promotional featurette. Maybe CBS Video thought the show would sell itself, and they're probably right. Maybe we'll get more when the second season is released.

After watching these episodes again, I realized something about Captain Brass. Either the writers forgot that he used to be in charge of CSI, or he's become stupid and forgot everything he once knew. His character has also chilled out a lot since the pilot episode, and he gets along better with the rest of the characters. (read entire review)
