Try watching it with an M.D. wife! Mine's gotten so bad about pointing out the medical errors I've about given up watching it with her (that plus Katherine bugs the crap out of me). On a side note, "House" is apparentlly pretty solid in it's research, the wife only points out errors in that show about ever other episode.Gray_Wolf said:I'm watching CSI Miami rigth now...lol but I haven't seen that eposode.
but yeah, that show is full of all kinds of mistakes.
Nice shot boss. ... Well said.JR said:You're kidding, right? You actually expect the TV, or movies, to get such esoteric subjects as medicine or firearms and ballistics correct? That would require re-writing 99% of everything made in the past sixty years, and lose some of the neatest special effects.
Cars DO NOT explode after accidents on any kind of regular basis. People are NOT blown through doors and windows by calibers less than 100mm. RPG rounds have a minimum flight time before arming. RPGs fired from inside a room tend to fry the shooter, and everyone else in the room. MP5's have 32 round magazines, not 3200. The longest belt available for an M60 was 250 rounds, not 2500.
CPR is only effective when administered properly. CPR cannot be given to a person who is upright in a car, nor can it be effective when administered on a bed or padded furniture.
Miami has never had a data-base for fired projectiles, or casings, that lists the owner of a weapon. Nor has Las Vegas. New York has a fired casing data-base. It's been in existence for a number of years, and had never had a hit. Maryland had had one for about ten years, and never was able to obtain a definite match to this day.
I'm guessing that, under CSI rules, the S&W M&P, S&W99, and Sigma series are all "cheap knock-offs of Glock and Walther"? Or that SigArms, S&W, Springfield Armory, Les Baer, Wilson, STI, and Kimber 1911's are all "cheap knovk-offs" of the Colt 1911?
Funny you mention House. Last night I had to turn House off because of the opening. It was an episode about someone drag racing, and it was supposed to be a top fuel dragster. Only problem is that it was missing the supercharger (means it is an injected nitro car that runs in Top Alcohol Dragster at best), and the driver was shifting (once again, Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars do shift). The other thing that bothered me was the fact that the other driver had a ventilation tube hooked up to his helmet. This doesn't happen in dragsters, only in funny cars, and it is still very rare. That is a NASCAR type of deal. The first thing about the race that got me was how the Christmas tree was a standard, sportsman style (3 lights come on after each other) instead of the pro style (all 3 at once).Rackir said:On a side note, "House" is apparentlly pretty solid in it's research, the wife only points out errors in that show about ever other episode.
