Error 1: The address is supposedly 232 Hillside Avenue, Jamaica Estates, Queens. There are no private houses on Hillside Avenue in the Jamaica Estates area, house numbers are at least 5 digits long, and the address as given is in New Hyde Park, in Nassau County, and outside of the jurisdiction of the NYPD. Error 2: Lefferts Boulevard runs parallel to 104th Street, and they do not cross. However, Lefferts Boulevard does cross with 104th AVENUE. See more »


Detective Danny Messer: [at a bloody murder scene] Remember what I said about having a son?
Detective Lindsay Monroe: Yeah.
Detective Danny Messer: Never mind. I'm good.
Detective Lindsay Monroe: Start from the outside in?
Detective Danny Messer: Yeah. We got to eliminate any prints left by the first officers and the EMTs.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: And Mac. And be honest - if that was you who responded to the scene, would you have known to try and get an ID by asking her to move her finger up and down?
Detective Danny Messer: Probably not. I guess that's why he's the boss, huh?

Not Always What It First Seems
21 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Did the son kill his father (and almost his mother, at the same time)? Was he the one who bludgeoned these people in their bed? From the hospital, the mother indicates to "Mac Taylor" that he did, and the kid acts like a punk in the opening scene, so Mac and the team try to prove it.

Unfortunately, as things unwind, there is more and more doubt that the obvious suspect is guilty. If not, who is?

It turns out to be a decent episode but nothing that memorable, to be honest. As in most CSI stories, you can't judge what you first see or hear.
