    Default CSI Miami throws science out the window, again



    I love it. An eclipse that happens in high speed mode (if the idiots
    staring at the partial eclipse had really done so for the duration (or
    five minutes) the whole lot of them would be blind. Also, I like the
    "enhanced" el cheap Meade telescope with special ultra-high resolution
    optics. Plus, the coroner crowing about "da voodoo" set her character
    as a literate, educated Black woman back about 50 years....

    Let's see... you're talking about a show where the lead detective/CSI is
    a creepy pedophile, and the coroner is a creepy necrophile, and you're
    worried about some poor science? The original CSI is the only one of the
    three that does a pretty good job with science in any case. How many TV
    shows do?

    A pretty good job? I mean, I like the show. Pretty graphics, cool
    special effects, but science? No way.

    I disagree. I rarely see serious scientific errors on CSI (Las Vegas). I
    think they do a remarkable job. They use the right techniques, and they
    use the right equipment. The main deviations from reality are
    simplifications required for story flow, like being able to get results
    rapidly when many tests take days. But I consider that pretty trivial.
    But the other CSI shows don't even come close to presenting clinical lab
    science accurately.

    I agree with that. I gave up on the other two CSIs. They were really
    cheap versions of the original. Bad acting, horrific plots and
    uninteresting characters. They pale in comparison to the original.

    Well, in one early (possibly first) season episode I saw CSI (LV) get the
    function of a GFCI totally wrong, and the murder plot depended on that.
    In other words, what they depicted as happening could not have happened
    in the way they described. I don't know how well they handle the lab
    stuff, I know electrical things much better, but my wife is a chemist
    and she always drools over the equipment they use. I've never heard
    her complain about the science techniques.

    You're right, I have seen them mess up a few electrocution cases
    somewhat. Still, they do pretty well, especially with the clinical
    chemistry stuff. Where they deviate from reality the most is in the
    quality of equipment, and quality of minds. I doubt there are any city
    or county forensics labs that have anywhere near as good of either. But
    if we were going to demand that kind of reality from fiction, it would
    be pretty boring!
