  • Good episode. the elite think they are above all else again. We have some great acting done however.

    The Beginning:

    The guy gets shot randomly in the elevator. Not a very original beginning, though it was a bit funny what are those two doing. It looks like a random encounter. The Cases:

    A case: This case was great, from the guy who slept with the girl who was way too young for him to the father who said he tried to be a good role model when he himself had a young wife. And yet he complained about her having Kinsey as a boyfriend. The killer in this turned out to be something crazy. And his weapon. But you felt bad for him in the end. After all she was stuck up and she was really b****y to him. Poor guy.

    B case: The poor guy who acted like someone else. And the punks who caused him to have an allergic reaction. There was the girl who chose her friends over him by inaction. And the friend who had no idea what he was up to. It was a good story, but very sad to see the ending. Again, a case with the elite thinking they are above rules and they can do anything. Both cases were actually about that, thinking of it now.

    Favorite Scene:

    Had to be when the girl at the bar says "you aren't going to tell anyone this are you? His wife knows my mother…" It was funny and disturbing at the same time. Great


    This was a good episode. I mean again we have the elite acting like they know better, but most CSIs do that. What I loved the most about this episode was the actor who portrayed the parking attendant. He did a really good job. His last scene was amazing. Stellar performance.moreless
  • Gripping episode from CSI:NY Season 2

    Starring the Gary Sinise, Melina Kanakaredes acting perfectly as they usualy do and ofcourse the other team aswell, as they head again to solve murder in the Big Apple.

    When a man is found murdered in an elevator, Mac, Flack, Danny and Lindsay investigate a world where very young girls enjoy sexual encounters with much older men. They're left trying to determine whether their best lead is a suspect, a witness, or the intended victim.

  • The script was okay.

    As shocking as some may think the whole concept of older men and much younger women or in this case girls. The approach was a novel one but I think it's been over done. Jason Kinsey was just a dirty old man no different from Brad Dobson. What was interesting about this case was the steering lock being used as the murder weapon. The fact that Melanie Dobson's snub of Mike Adams due to her being a spoiled brat caused Mike to seek revenge. By pure dumb luck Melanie escaped unharmed. The case Stella & Hawkes had a little more depth but also had some of the same tones. Alex Weston just wanted revenge on some spoiled brats who don't aren't aware of a world outside of their own.moreless
  • it's all about fitting in

    Some spoilers!

    I liked this ep, from all the CSI's, NY is my least favorite, but it also is the one with the most morals in the story line.

    This episode was all about wanting to be somebody...

    The unsuccessful actor who's trying hard to fit in with the rich guys and the car boy trying to get approval from the sexy girl in the bar...

    I liked it how the stories had more in common than the characters realise.

    And the unusual weapon, a home made gun!

    I thought that was very clever! I never would have come up with that! a steering lock... amazing!moreless
  • I think CSI NY's remodelling appeal is fading and they need to move on with something else..it's like "CSI NY is in New York, I get it!". But given that Aiden Burn is replaced by Linsey Munroe, it still is quite an good show to watch.moreless

    The show opens up with a well off school girl and a rich old wictim-to-be man waiting for an elevator. After making out in the elevator, the lift opens up and the victim-to-be became "GSW to the chest".

    4 persons are on this case while Hawkes and Bonasera investigate a dead young man who got killed from an allergic reaction to Lobster.

    I am not gonna spoil the show, maybe I have already abit, but this show is just above the average. There is nothing spectacular to shout about. But I put it above average because now that Aiden is gone, the chemistry between the actors is fun to watch.

    CSIs are known for their in-lab simulations. This week's ep is quite an interesting one as they struggle to find the weapon that killed the rich guy.

    -1 Below average music score. Bill brown needs to work on this.

    -1 Average crime subplot...(Sheldon's case)moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • (After Danny chooses to work on the paper and leaves Lindsay with the elastic)
      Danny: You're done?
      Lindsay: Waiting on you.

    • Hawkes: Some vegetables, some seafood, lobster of some kind, probably in a soup.
      Stella: Lobster. There's no sign of strangulation on our vic, yet he died from asphyxiation. Allergic reaction?
      Hawkes: Exactly what I was thinking. He only ate about ten minutes before he died.
      Stella: Hmm. I thought you only got to choose your last meal on death row.
      Hawkes: Guy didn't know it was his last meal.
      Stella: Lest the allergic reaction.

    • Lydia: He was in here last night, with me. I went back to his place, I was with him all night, awake. And let me tell you, he didn't go anywhere. What, this is in confidence, right? I mean, his wife knows my mother.

    • Mac: Ah, his belt's undone.
      Stella: Our woman in heels either knew him, or was about to.

    • Hawkes: Watch?
      Sid: No, I kept that.
      (Hawkes gives him a look)
      Sid: What? It was a nice watch.

    • (after hearing the suspect's statement)
      Stella: Fitting in... you're going to do a lot of that. Lets say for the next... 15 years...

    • (Talking about Kinsey)
      Bowers: Come on, I could take him with one hand tied behind my back.

    • (Trying to ID the vic)
      Hawkes: I'd say a homeless guy probably living where we found him, in the park.
      Stella: Park Avenue, maybe. I've got a really nice pair of pants, a tailor-made shirt, fancy watch, traces of paint and lipstick on the shirt, I'd say he's a very wealthy guy.
      Hawkes: Well, he must have found the clothes. The shoes never lie.
      Stella: Yeah well, this little watch here is worth four or five grand, quite a find for a homeless guy.
      Hawkes: Yeah.
      Stella: Let me check missing persons. Someone notices when a guy with money doesn't come home.
      Hawkes: By definition, homeless people are missing people.

    • (In the morgue)
      Hawkes: You send blood to tox?
      (Sid gives him a look)
      Hawkes: Just checking.
      Sid: You miss us? The ME's life?
      Hawkes: Yeah, but I like being in the field. In here, all I ever saw was the victim, out there... I see the crime.
      Sid: I like it in here.
      Hawkes: Why's that?
      Sid: It's quiet.

    • (Mac finds a homemade gun)
      Flack: And you have no idea how it got like that, right?
      Mike Adams: It's a mystery to me, man.
      Flack: Join the club.

    • Hawkes: Hey, ever figure out who was calling?
      Stella: Sheldon Hawkes, mind your own business.

  • NOTES (4)


    • Witness: (To Stella) Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

      This is the title of a song by Rise Against, and it's also similar to a quote from Mark Twain, who once said: The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated, after his obituary was mistakenly published.

    • Nabokov's, the bar where men meet young girls, is named after Vladimir Nabokov, whose controversial novel Lolita details a middle-aged man's attraction to a pre-pubescent girl.

    • Flack: Mr. Kinsey was being all that he could be.

      "Be all you can be" used to be a recruiting slogan for the United States Army.

      This same line is alluded in Season 4 Episode 5 Down the Rabbit Hole when Adam is creating the female avatar for Mac in Second Life.

    • Ben: You ever hear about that guy that pretended to be that famous singer's son?

      Ben is alluding to David Hampton who in the 1980s pretended to be Sidney Poitier's son and consequently conned his way into several wealthy homes in NYC. John Guare, playwright, loosley based his play Six Degrees of Separation on Hampton (Will Smith starred in the movie based on the play).
