Did You Know?


The form of dancing seen here that Mac says he thought went out with Ms Pac-Man and the Rubix Cube and Bonesera says went underground and got a new name and became pro is called break dancing. Street dancing can be many different forms of dancing done on the streets, it is an umbrella term, there are still particular names or sub groups for each different style. They are correct that a lot of these dance forms have gone pro, being taught in dance studios now etc... See more »


In the flashbacks it's clear Brooke only suffers a head wound, and this wound is not bleeding much. Yet, somehow, she manages to leave a blood trail all the way from the room down to the lobby, with the blood drops increasing in size. Where she falls down in the lobby, there is also a substantial blood stain, yet there was no stain left where she fell during the initial assault. See more »


Detective Mac Taylor: You ever seen this guy before?
Dot com: It's Jesse Lewis. He thinks he's got skills for battling.
Detective Don Flack: Yeah, we heard you two exchanged skills last night. You came in second place.
Dot com: Yeah, well, the judges must have been high or something. Why you asking me about Jesse? He do something wrong?
Detective Don Flack: Yeah. He stepped in front of a gun while someone else was pulling the trigger.

'Dirty Dancing'
10 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was another solid episode, fun to watch from start-to-finish.

As for what actually happened in this crime story and why it happened - revealed near the end, of course - was different from any other crime story I've ever seen.....very original.

Meanwhile, who remembers "breaking dancing?" If you do, and you liked watching it, you see some incredible stuff in this episode. It's now called "street dancing" and these guys are incredible. Unfortunately, one of them winds up dead.

One of the bad guys I thought was fascinating to watch. That was Vincent Laresca who played "Al Santiago." He answers "Don Flack" and "Mac Taylor" with some very funny, sarcastic remarks.
