5. DVD: CSI: NY — The Ninth Season
Yes, it's true, CSI: NY didn't always do the best job of presenting gay and trans characters without stereotypes, but after a meeting with GLAAD several years ago, the show improved immensely. And it's always been one of the few TV series with a lesbian executive producer (the very brilliant Ann Donahue). Which is why CSI: NY — The Ninth Season is a must-have DVD set. The series' last season, and one of few in which Sela Ward (a supporter of LGBT youth and GLSEN) was a costar, CSI:NY – The Ninth Season reunites the seriously sexy cast (Ward, Gary Sinise, Carmine Giovinazzo, and Eddie Cahill, among others) as a fascinating group of forensic investigators who use high-tech science to discover traces of evidence and solve crimes in the Big Apple. Cahill plays a hot cop; this year he was joined by Natalie Martinez as attractive butch detective Jamie Lovato, who we're sure is bisexual and just doesn't know it. In addition to all 17 action-packed episodes of the ninth season, the five-disc DVD set also offers some exclusive special features, including A Day Off With, a featurette in which the cast and co-executive producer Trey Callaway recount the popular episodes that showcased each character’s day off from the New York crime lab; The Clue, a featurette, in which the cast talks about one of the most popular episodes, where a serial killer chooses his victims based on the popular board game; and On Thin Ice, where hotties Cahill, Giovinazzo, and A.J. Buckley show off their ice hockey skills. Oh, and there are deleted scenes, a gag reel, and your usual fan faves.
