I bought the DVDs for CSI: NY today and popped it in the player. To start off watching the series, I started with MIA/NYC Non-Stop, a good introduction into the series, but I still can't believe how annoying and self-righteous Horatio Caine is. I'm amazed that not one of his colleagues have flown off the handle and shoved his "Sunglasses of Justice" up his behind.
Just, you know, because that's what I would have done.
Anyway, the cast of CSI NY seems really unformed here. Noticeably missing was Detective Flack, who adds a wee bit of eye-candy to the show. As well, the characters have yet to gain their own personalities. However, much can be learnt about Mac by looking at how he treats the people working with him. See sunglasses comment from above.
