Did You Know?


The baby was born in the Year of the Monkey and was 11 months old. Chinese New Year for the Year of the Monkey started January 22, 2004. In order for the baby to be 11 months old, this episode, shown in mid-November, must take place after December 22. See more »


Danny Messer: Did ya know, six months ago, this place was a shoe store? And they just come in and turn it into a bank?
Aiden Burn: These days anybody can be a banker.
Danny Messer: [looking at hole cut in bank vault wall] Yeah, but you'd think they'd consider some kind of security. I mean, even double-thick steel. What is this, stainless steel sheeting? I got this stuff on the front of my dishwasher.

Cringe-worthy writing
18 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I usually don't write a user review for an episode of a television series, but after three instances of particularly bad writing in this episode of "CSI: NY", I made an exception.

1. Mac Taylor is trying to figure out how bank robbers gained access to an empty building that's for lease. He sees a hole in the exterior door. Outside, he finds the skeleton of an umbrella. An epiphany moment. However, rather than use the umbrella that he found to open the door through the hole, Taylor grabs the real estate agent's umbrella, rips off the fabric, and uses its skeleton to open the door. Completely inexplicable behavior.

2. The bank clerk / mother of a kidnapped infant wanted proof that her daughter still lives. Thus, the bank robbers brought the girl's bracelet to the bank during the robbery. That scene is so wrong from several different angles. A bracelet is proof of life?#@! They bring the bracelet to the breached vault, but the mother is upstairs?#@!

3. One bank robber got shot, nicking his carotid artery. He traveled from the bank in Chinatown to a Broadway theater before he bled out. Really? As even Mac Taylor said, "Long way to go".

Hopefully, this less-than-stellar writing is an aberration; otherwise, I'll find a different series to watch.

On a positive note, this episode had several instances of interesting forensic science.
