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.
