"In Vino Veritas" was a bit of a letdown for me. When I heard that a crossover between "CSI" and "CSI: NY" was happening, I was not overly excited, but I was eager to see it. While it was not terrible it did not live up to expectations. The story concerning the murder of the wine connoisseur was well done I will admit. However the storyline concerning Mac and his girlfriend seemed way too contrived for me to buy into. Also, since it was not given much screen time and was overshadowed by the murder investigation, it seemed like filler. Mac's dialogue in the final seen just seemed like he was reading lines from a script it was so cliched. Well, nobody's perfect.
