Opening ThemeEdit

PremiseEdit

This show follows the Crimelab of the New York City Police department. Unlike in CSI these characters are considered detectives, and Mac Taylor, Stella Bonasera, and Danny Messer, all mention the time they spent as cops of on the force. The detectives travel to all five boroughs of the city and also sometimes travel outside city limits for cases.

The show is a police procedural and often deals with issues found in such a large city such as mob activity, gang violence, and ethnic, cultural, and ability differences. It has also dealt with the sensitive issue of HIV infection, although reviews of how the topic was handled were mixed.

ReceptionEdit

When it originally aired, CSI: NY seemed to be the least popular of all of the CSI shows, and many people thought it was too dark, possibly due to the fact that it was shot using a blue light. At the beginning of the second season, however, this stopped at the order of CBS President Les Mooneves. [citation needed]
