Give it a chance
When most TV shows have spinoffs, they're usually not worth watching because of thing-they are different than the original. I think that is a major reason that many fans don't like CSI:NY. While the original show is set in glamorous Las Vegas, NY is set in a much darker city, giving the show a darker tone and feel than Miami or Vegas.

As for characters, New York has a great cast, and is still working on character development. They have been seen as not having personalities, but people have to give the show a chance to find it's foothold-it's only the first season. It took the original CSI five years to say that Sara's mom killed her dad, so its logical that it will take a few seasons to totally tell these characters backgrounds. Danny Messer and Mac Taylor's pasts have been partially revealed in the premiere "Blink", with the knowledge that Max Taylor's wife was in 9/11, and in "Tanglewood", with Danny's involvement in the Tanglewood boys street gang.

The acting in CSI:NY is just as good as those in the other shows, but most people aren't giving it a chance. Some will like it, some wont, but the least they could do is watch some of the stronger episodes, like "Blink", or "Tanglewood", and not scrunitze its difference from the originals...just give it a chance. Rome wasn't built in a day- it will take a little longer for people to accept this new show, but i think it's doing perfectly, and i can't wait for next season.

Trivia

Real life police and prosecutors have noticed due to the CSI effect real-life criminals have started covering their tracks and are destroying potential evidence against them before leaving crime scenes. One example of this is when double-murderer Jermaine McKinney broke into a house and killed a mother and daughter, he then proceeded to wash blood away with bleach, burn his clothing to destroy evidence, blanket his getaway car to avoid blood transfer, remove his cigarette butts from the scene and attempt to dispose of the murder weapon. McKinney was a big fan of CSI, and this type of calculated behavior is no isolated incident as some rapists have now begun forcing their victims to shower after an attack in order to wash away any forensic evidence.

"[These shows] are actually educating potential killers even more," says Head of Los Angeles Homicide Division Captain Ray Peavy. "Sometimes I believe it may even encourage them when they see how simple it is to get away with on television." Peavy isn't alone in his thinking. "[Criminals] do clean up, and they tend to clean up much more carefully now," said Linda Johnson, a crime lab director at Jefferson County, Alabama. "A lot of them know they can use bleach and different detergents to mask our ability to take blood."


Quotes

Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Apart from the fact of it not being attached to a person, there's nothing wrong with this finger.


Goofs

CSIs (Crime Scene Investigators) are actually called CSUs (Crime Scene Units) in the City of New York. However, this is most likely a deliberate change to better tie in the series as existing in the same universe as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000) and CSI: Miami (2002).
