Episode 10: Clean Sweep
Andy Garcia and Ray Liotta are both said to have turned down the lead role in CSI: NY before Gary Sinise agreed to take it. We can only speculate as to how much more alive the series might have been with a lead character a little less hewn from oak. Mac Taylor is surely American television’s most stolid, charisma-free detective, trundling through 175-odd episodes and counting, like a semi-moveable waxwork.
But in this episode a blonde reporter attempts to melt that hardened exterior, flirting with him so keenly that even Mac begins to look intrigued. Where the love interest leads, we’ll have to wait and see.
For the time being we’re mostly concerned with the death and immolation of a cage fighter.
