It's All Greek To 'Mac,' Thanks To 'Stella'
16 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one's all about Stella, who winds up "visiting" the home where she was born, Greece, to finally get to the bottom of this smuggling case which she discovers is not totally closed and apparently involves her beloved "Professor Papakota."

The story is involving with good action and suspense. My only problem with it is that, in real life, "Stella Bonasera" would have been suspended for lying to her direct superior (Mac) and hindering a case. But, this is TV and these are the two main characters since Day 1 of CSI: New York, so that doesn't happen....but it should have.

Regardless, it finally brings closure to this case of Greek smuggling, the greed and the revenge and it's nice to see the Greek countryside, and also good to see Mac get over his justified anger at Stella, and help her solve the case.
