    Did anyone tape this show to check on some dialogue?

    I swear I heard Horatio say that mosquitoes are attracted to the "carbon monoxide" that we exhale--I don't believe he said carbon DIOXIDE...but monoxide...

    Almost all of them look ill at ease when doing lab work, and near the end of the show, Kim Delaney was swabbing a knife blade with a q-tip looking for blood, then took a dropper out of a bottle and actually touched the end of the q-tip with the dropper, which would contaminate it and then the liquid in the bottle--unless they use the bottle only once then throw it out?

    Oh well, artistic license I guess.

    I noticed the carbon monoxide/dioxide mistake as well! I couldn't believe they let that slip by.

    It was very sloppy. I winced when I saw the "stubbing" of the eyedrop tip on the swab head.

    Maybe Kane does exhale carbon monoxide, it would explain some of his rants and tough guy speeches, I think.

    Valid points all, but the one thing that bothers me the most is that no one seems to wear a mask, much less a face shield or respirator on this show.
    I have cut up my fair share of dead creatures, some of them approaching the "ripe" stage, and I have no great desire to inhale pathogens or get them in my eyes from blood splash.
    But if they wore masks all the time, I guess we wouldn't see how cute they all are.

    In the original CSI there was an episide with a ring of counterfeiters. When the CSI team broke up the ring, the print plates that were found had a positive image of a $100 bill. So when you printed money with these plates, the writing on the counterfeit bills would be backwards. Those would be pretty hard to pass.

    P.S. I can't believe the show is only in its third year and I have to call it "original". CSI-TOS??

    So out of the two, which one do you guys like the best, Miami or the original?
    You would think as good as these shows are supposed to be, those details would not slip bye?

    If I could only watch one, it'd still be the Las Vegas version.

    Ralph, I seem to remember that the episode was one where
    the plates were inteded to be bait for an IA investigation
    So they may have been faulty on purpose. Of course, I'd just put it down to creative license to make the bill more recognizeable.

    On the 11-4 program which is listed at the top, i also noticed some errors. I am an audiologist, and the show kept referring to a ruptured eardrum, while scuba diving, causing damage to the inner ear. This is false... when the eardrum perforates water will fill the middle ear. The inner ear is already filled with fluid and therefore is equalized, any water pressure cannot burst the cochlea or cause "inner ear damage"

    This is season #3 for CSI. I only started watching the show last year, in its second season.

    I am now catching up on season 1 repeats on TNN (Monday nights at 11:08 pm.)
