The car in long term storage has an emblem on it, an M over T. It looks like a car company logo but it actually stands for Mac Taylor. The car is a Ford Thunderbird. See more »


The team finds over 30 "Mac Taylor"s in New York City, with only one of them female, named Mackendra. Since 1980, the name Mackenzie for girls has been more popular than any other name beginning with "Mac" for either gender, growing in popularity each year. Odds are that most Mac Taylors in New York City were women and girls under 30 whose full names were Mackenzie Taylor. It is highly unlikely that nearly all the Mac Taylors in NYC were men.

Who Wants To Kill One Of The People Named Mac Taylor?
28 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story was kind of a clever one, with someone apparently trying to kill someone named "Mac Taylor." No, not particularly our Mac (series star Gary Sinise) but some Mac Taylor in New York City.

After a short time, the clues and expert CSI work make it look like whoever is after someone named Mac Taylor is actually trying to find the right one, because he doesn't know. He only knows the kind of car he drives.

Anyway, if that sounds confusing, the episode gets that way, too, with lots of evidence and strange bits of buttons, smears, prints, different kinds of deaths.... on and on. It gets very involved but it's a very interesting case with a dramatic ending.

Along the way, we get some inklings about some possible future romances here involving some of the CSI gang.

This marked the 100th episode of this fine TV program.
