WHY WHY WHY? They had such a fantastic storyline but they screwed it up by eliminating Mac as a target after 15 minutes!
If the writers had kept Mac in the balance as a target, this could've been a fantastic episode. I, and I'm sure many others, have been looking forward to this episode for months and months...It's only my natural loyalty to CSI:NY that made me give this a 9 when it really deserved less. Congrats to the writers in one respect though - WHAT A STORYLINE! Great idea! Just a real pity they couldn't carry it off in the way many of us wanted. A general disappointment for its 100th episode especialy in comparison to CSI and CSI:MIAMI's 100th ones. Oh well, lets hope its 200th will be better!moreless
In the 100th episode someone is killing people with the name Mac Taylor
CSI NY is at its 100th episode and someone is killing the Mac Taylor's in NY this puts Mac in real danger but as usual Mac isn't afraid but he finds out later that he is trying to kill one of the Mac Taylor's and he has already checked if it was Mac and it wasn't. but they have to find the right one.It was a bit weird when all the Mac Taylor's came together and they was being called Mac Taylor.In the end the killer isn't really a psychopathic killer you would think he is,he is just someone trying to kill one Mac Taylor that killed his girlfriend and the other murders was an accident.I would probably say that a 9 was right for this episode.moreless
all of the mactaylors are being stalked and sometimes killed to see their key because the suspects girlfriend was struck by a person named mac taylor but only has the discription of the car
I give it an 8 because it has the action throughout but it has it's boring like 2-3 min parts in the end the perp attempts suicide while being put into custody which i have to admitt was one of the best parts of the episode a good episode i have loved csi:ny and this is one the best episodes i have seen the episode with large amounts of suspense i always will watch episodes like this great episode again and when everyone named mac taylor in danger it was sure to plese 8 stars of course i loved itmoreless
The 100th episode where a mysterious killer targets all the Mac Taylors in New York.
Wow, the big 100th episode of CSI New York! A good storyline as well, having a mysterious killer targeting everyone in New York with the name Mac Taylor. What a special way to celebrate by bringing in so many guest stars to play the various Mac Taylors. There's Scott Wolf, who i haven't seen on TV in so long, playing Mackinley Taylor the reporter. There's Chris Daughtry, who apparently is trying his hand at acting now, playing Machievelli Taylor, the only one with a criminal record. There's Rumer Willis, who i'm amazed to discover actually can act pretty well, playing Mackendra Taylor the only female Mac in the show. Nelly also appeared for a bit of fun as the police informant. I really like the twist that Detective Mac turned out to NOT be the killer's target, because that was exactly what i predicted since he always seems to be in that dangerous position judging from other episodes of this series. I love that i was wrong, and i love that the show can still surprise me. It was a lot more fun trying to guess exactly which Mac Taylor's life was gonna be endangered at the end.moreless
Mac Taylor's in New York are being killed
In this episode of CSI New York, the following happens. We open this episode with the 2nd person named Mac Taylor to have been attacked/killed in the same week. Mac Taylor now believes he is the next victim. The team soon make the decision to call in all of the Mac Taylors that are in New York. There soon is another victim, name Mac Taylor, but this one is still alive. We soon learn that the killer is looking for a pacific Mac Taylor, and only has a description of their car to go on. This is why the killer is checking car keys. Mac gets the number of Mac Taylors in custody down to 7, based on the fact that the others don't drive or are children. The team soon learn the reason why Mac Taylor's are being targeted. The killer is looking for the one who killed his girlfriend. They to his apartment but he isn't there. They track him down and find him sitting by all of his girlfriend's photos near where she died. He has also drenched himself in gasoline. He soon falls onto of the candles and sets himself on fire.moreless
In CSI: NY's 100th episode, Mac Taylors all over New York are being targeted.
A solid episode. The plot was interesting, and the guest starring of Nelly, Marshall Faulk and Chris Daughtry was exciting. If the expectations were higher because of the episode being the show's 100th, then perhaps the episode didn't exceed it by much, but the show kept to its strengths. Each character was well-played, and the one of the good things was that Mac was not the intended true target; even though most of the time, the main character might be and it keeps the audience on edge, it was nice to see some uniqueness. Creatively written for sure. Congratulations CSI: NY on your 100th episode!moreless
One of the oddest milestone episodes I've seen.
I was saving this show to watch as a special event because I expected something spectacular for a CSI landmark episode, so maybe my own hype was more at fault here than the episode itself. It was probably as good as any of the other episodes, but I think that's where the problem lay. Both "Ch-Ch-Changes" the original CSI's 100th ep. and CSI Miami's 100th "Darkroom" were really strong episodes which made this one seem fairly pedestrian. The concept was excellent, any of the CSI's running an insider vs. killer storyline is usually quite a thriller, i.e. dark storylines, cliff hanger moments, protracted but frenetic investigations. This lost its thrill the moment we knew that it wasn't CSI Detective Mac Taylor who was being hunted.
The fact that this episode was shown the same week that the original CSI had a really strong story wrapping up a very long and successfully thrilling story arc only highlighted the weakness in it.
The thing which dragged this episode up from a 5 point review to an 8 point one was the, almost incidental but probably developing, storyline between Gillian Whitmore and Mac. The final scene, final line of the episode made the rest seem a little better. Although I can't help but feel that even this would have been made hugely more poignant if Mac had just been rescued from near death. Maybe this is a gateway episode to make room for more about Mac the man than previously has been explored. Previously it's just been Mac the Detective whilst other characters have had their private lives spill into work. I will still look forward to future episodes with hope though.moreless
"CSI: NY" marks its 100th episode with the team investigating the death of two men and an assault on one woman. The victims never have never met each other, but they have one thing in common: they are all named Mac Talyor.
When I first heard about the premise of this episode, I was immediately reminded of the science fiction classic "The Terminator" which uses the same premise of a killer whose victims have the same name. The recycled premise concerned me, but in the end I found this episode to be very well done as well as entertaining. I liked the fact that Mac was eliminated as a target from the beginning and instead the focus shifted to the team's efforts to crack the case. The story was believeable and had the right amount of drama and suspense to hit home.moreless
Mac Taylors all over the place!
This episode was really funny and that everybody that was named Mac Taylor. Including the good cop, was being targetted for a reason. And that it was really strange. The reporter was really one big mouth person. That he really was someone that you wanted to punch in the mouth. But you figured that since this was such a big case. He wanted to make a name for himself. Plus, he may have had something to do with it, you think. The good doc Shelton, figures it all out. Don't know how or why. But he comes in at the right place and at the right time. You could really tell that Stella cared for Mac. And wanted this nightmare to end. How good to have a true friend like her.moreless
I expected more I guess
I stopped watching CSI: NY only a few months after I decided to watch it... It's just not my type of show. This and CSI just seem like they focus on the case and solving the case and not the characters. They aren't interesting to me. Anyways, to this episode. I decided to watch it when I saw the commercial and I was disappointed. I really wanted Det. Mac Taylor to have a murderer trying to kill him, but they ruled out that possibility in 10 minutes. I loved Daughtry as a guest star; he was actually pretty good. Anyways, the case was ok, but very cliched. Overall, just an ok episode and the reason I can't really watch this show anymore. Cute ending to the episode though.moreless
