CSI: New York, Season 5, Part 1

Preview by Jack Foley

TAKING a bite out of Big Apple crime, Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) continues to lead his team of dedicated detectives through the gritty and kinetic city that never sleeps.

Catch all the excitement when CSI New York: Season 5, Part 1 is released on DVD by Momentum Pictures on August 10, 2009.

You think you know them… think again. In Season 5 of CSI: NY secrets are revealed as we explore the characters in even more depth and see the CSIs tackle their toughest cases to date.

The season explodes out of the gate with the heart-stopping, pulse-pounding conclusion to season four’s cliffhanger as the manhunt for Mac Taylor and the man who took him hostage continues.

Mac isn’t the only one in jeopardy this season, as Stella Bonasera (Melinda Kanakaredes) gets involved in a mystery that becomes personal and has international implications.

Throughout the course of the season, the ‘getting to know you’ theme continues as the team face life-changing decisions. For Dr Sheldon Hawks (Hill Harper), it’s a case of personal betrayal.

For Adam (AJ Buckley), it’s his career. And for Danny (Carmine Giovinazzo) and Lindsay (Anna Belknap), let’s just say it’s big!

About CSI: NY

The CSI: NY team is led by Det. Mac Taylor (Sinise), a dedicated and driven crime-scene investigator who believes that everything is connected and everyone has a story.

He and his partner, Stella Bonsaera (Kanakaredes), a well-travelled, well-educated detective, share a passion for the job. They lead a team of experts including Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo), an investigator with an unflappable spirit, who attempts daily to live up to the honour of being hand-picked by Mac; Sheldon Hawkes (Hill Harper), the crime lab’s former coroner, and Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), an edgy, hardcore detective with a quick wit, impressive forensic insight and a long family history in law enforcement.

Rounding out the team is Lindsay Monroe (Anna Belknap), a Montana native with intelligence, perseverence and a secret past.

The New York CSIs may have a different process from those in Las Vegas and Miami, but they are guided by the same steadfast ambition.
