CSI: Vegas Season 1 DVD Review

Official Synopsis: A new threat has enshrouded the neon streets of Sin City, and it’s going to take some familiar faces to stare it down. William Petersen and Jorja Fox return to the roles they made famous – and to the crime drama that made CBS history – in CSI: Vegas. Can they prevent the perpetrator from bringing down the whole CSI crime lab? Old friends meet new enemies – and the latest forensic techniques – in CSI: Vegas.

I was a huge fan of the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation when it began airing in 2000. So when I learned they were going to air a revival, even with an almost all new cast, I was super excited. So when the new CSI: Vegas started in October 2021, I watched each episode religiously. And for the most part, it didn’t disappoint. It even features an updated version of the original opening, which was fantastic to hear and see! Check it out below.

The return of Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox) and Gil Grissom (William Petersen), along with David Hodges (Wallace Langham) & Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle), was incredibly welcome. I especially enjoyed series newcomers Paula Newsome as head of the lab Maxine Roby, as well as Matt Lauria & Mandeep Dhillon as CSIs Joshua Folsom & Allie Rajan. When Brass is attacked and Hodges is accused of manipulating evidence during his years as a CSI, Sara & Grissom decide to come back to find Brass’s attacker and help clear Hodges’ name so the crime lab itself can be cleared of any wrongdoing. The season focuses on those things, and for the most part, I thought they handled it well. We still got the “case of the week” while also dealing with the season arc of those story lines.

Season 1 of CSI: Vegas was released on DVD on April 5, 2022. It contains 3 discs featuring all 10 episodes, along with some great Special Features:

Deleted Scenes:
“Legacy” (Disc 1), “Honeymoon in Vegas” (Disc 1), “Under the Skin” (Disc 1), “Long Pig” (Disc 1), “Let the Chips Fall” (Disc 1), “Funhouse” (Disc 2)

Featurettes:
Everything Old Is New Again – Learn how the revival was brought to our TV screens and the challenges it faced with the possibility of being compared to the original. Both the new and returning cast members chat about their thoughts on the revival and their characters.
A Brand New Look – Associate Producer Alex Berry gives viewers a tour of the newly created state-of-the-art laboratory sets — very much an updated to the 21st Centurty. (Note: It really is amazing. I went back to look at some of the original series, and it seems so dark and…old now! When it first aired, it all felt so high tech! LOL)
Seeing Is Believing – Visual Effects Supervisor Brad Tannenbaum goes into great detail about some of the amazing footage and shots in the revival. You’ll be awed by the incredible effects as they’re deconstructed to give you an inside look at how they’re done.
 
 
Overall, this is a fun addition to the original series and well worth owning on DVD (or Blu-ray!).
