All good things must come to an end … sadly.
One of the best crime series on TV, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, closes up shop on Sept. 15 when Paramount Home Media Distribution sends home the five-disc DVD set of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: The Final Season.
A decade and a half of Las Vegas crime solving winds to a close with 18 new cases to solve, including an on-going investigation involving the Gig Harbor Killer.
Some interesting guest stars take a turn with the Las Vegas crime-stoppers that include the likes of Eric Roberts and Patricia Arquette, who stars in the new CSI spin-off, CSI: Cyber.
Bonus goodies for fans to savor include deleted scenes and a half-dozen featurettes — “Cool Cars,” “Girls Gone Gadgets,” “Following The Evidence,” “Killer Crime Scenes,” “All Dolled Up” and “That's All, Stokes.”
Speaking of Patricia Arquette, how convenient is it that Paramount Home Media has also selected Sept. 15 as the DVD debut date for CSI: Cyber: The First Season, the four-disc, 13-episode spin-off of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
In this mid-season launch (hence only 13 episodes), Arquette follows in the footsteps of CSI: Miami (David Caruso) and CSI: NY (Gary Sinise), but as FBI Special Agent Avery Ryan she is not locked down to a specific city (her character was introduced in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode “Kitty” during the shows 2013/2014 season). Instead, her CSI activities are internet in nature.
Bonus goodies for CSI: Cyber: The First Season include the aforementioned “Kitty” episode, deleted scenes, a gag reel and five featurettes — “It Can Happen To You,” “Welcome to CTOC,” “Encoding CSI: Cyber,” “CGI – Cyber” and “Tech Tools of the Trade.”
Also announced this week is a Blu-ray edition of NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service - The Complete 12th Season, which will street on Sept. 15 (the DVD SKU will be retail-ready on Aug. 18).
