  • "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.
