Ever notice that on CSI the crime scene is always dark (doesn't matter if it's day or night) and the CSI's are always using their flashlights? Why don't they just turn on the lights? <br><br>* * * * * * * * * * * * * *<br>I [censored] bigger than you.<br>

Ahh yes...lots of TV shows do that. <br><br>When it's dark, that's a trick to hide parts of the set they don't want you to see. It alllows the viewer to assume things are there that really aren't. <br><br>
I watched the pilot episode of CSI. One CSI guy explained what a black box from a jet was to another CSI guy and that was it for me. I have no patience with dumbed down, have to over explain everything pabulum. <br><br>
first of all it's not true. the crime scene is not always dark. even if it is, they don't want to disturb the scene. they can't be sure if switching on the light would explode the place because of a gas leak or something.<br><br>second, even if this a valid complaint, i would argue if this is the most bothering or not. i would say when the use a security camera footage and take off the reflection from the cornea of an eye of a passerby and further zoom in to read the label on the reflected persons t-shirt that IS IMPOSSIBLE! i wish there was such a software which can create a legible logo from less than one pixel of information.<br><br>creativebits / adsoftheworld

The only thing that continues to bother me about any lab scene in any of the CSI shows, NCSI, and the like is that it seems every little action that happens on a computer screen is accompanied by a little tweedley alert sound.<br><br>For the rest of it, unless the science is REALLY stretching the bounds of physics and credibility, I can suspend my disbelief and just enjoy the ride.<br><br>
I watched one episode of CSI Miami because a mass spectrometry instrument manufacturer scientist told me he had worked on the set plugging some of their instruments in. Since I had the same stuff I thought it would be interesting to see them on a TV show.<br><br>It was awful. None of the things they did analyzing samples was possible. Mostly it was the time. Take a sample and 30 seconds later the computer is stating what hand lotion the perp uses. Hours of analysis shrunk to seconds. I know it is poetic license and the show would be incredibly dull to people who don't know what these instruments are doing but it grates on the nerves of people who do.<br><br>But I hate it when a TV show based in Boston shows someone pulling up and always finding a parking spot in front of the building. Totally implausible. <br><br><br><br><br><br> (__*__)
