Did You Know?


Mac Taylor's name is derived from two sources. 'Mac' from Gary Sinise's son, McCanna, (said to be Mac's real name on the show as well) and 'Taylor' from Lt. Dan Taylor, Gary's character in Forrest Gump (1994). See more »


The team finds a film camera from which someone has ripped the film. Detectives decide that since the suspect only tore away part of the film that they could develop what wasn't taken. However, the only film remaining undamaged would also be unexposed film: i.e., no images. However, they magically get an image to help in their investigation. See more »


Det. Mac Taylor: [sitting next to a comatose woman] I'm so tired. I used to sit like this with my wife. Her name was Claire. She died on 9/11. Nobody saw it coming. I was cleaning out the closet the other day, and I... I found this beach ball. And I remembered it was my wife who blew it up. I never told anybody this, but I got rid of everything that reminded me of Claire. Too painful. The one thing I couldn't throw away was that beach ball. Her breath is still in there.

Very Good 'Opening' Episode
16 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent "opening episode," a real thinking person's show in which "Mac," with the help of his team, had to really dig deep to try to figure this one out.

It involves "Locked In Syndrome" in which some sadistic, twisted and intelligent person was "experimenting" on women with the goal of "locking themselves into their own body," making them, in effect, coma-like. His first two experiments failed, leading to the CSI team finding two dead bodies. When they find one barely alive, they try to piece it all together. It doesn't help Mac that he's going several days without sleep.

On the DVD, this was the second episode, but it's really the season-opener. The first one, technically, was on CSI-Miami earlier in the year where a case in Miami led to New York City and we meet the New York City CSI team. This episode, aired in September, was the official opener for the 2004 season.
