Last night I was watching a Quincy episode from 1979 on the Hallmark channel. And a couple of things they showed highlight the advancements over the past 24 years. -In one scene Quincy has to send fingerprints to Washington to see if they match any felons. Where as on CSI they just boot up the computer and get an instant search. -In another scene they use a new device to find fingerprints on a victim. It was a large tabletop device that when they put on special glasses they can see the fingerprints on the victim's face. I laugh because on Quincy they made such a big thing about this new device. Whereas on CSI it is such a common item. That is now the size of a flashlight. This is from just one show. I am sure if I watched more episodes I can find more examples. And on another note. Grissom and Quincy are so completely opposite. Grissom is a buy the book evidence man who rarely strays from the crime scene. Whereas, Quincy was always proactive and trying to solve the crime and as in last nights episode he also tried to cure the large social ill of teen runaways. I could see CSI doing a guest appearance by Jack Klugman as Grissom's father. And on a final note. Who had the cooler car? Horatio Caine's Hummer or Quincy's black station wagon??
