    This man's critique is easily one of my favorite of any I've heard. He uses context, facts, and fully explains his understanding of both. Great series and great watch

    Thank for pointing out picking things up with pens, and gathering evidence before photographing and marking! I'm not a forensics person, I'm an author, and I find the lack of accuracy disturbing. I've watched TV shows & movies, and get annoyed with the careless handling of important evidence.

    I would've loved to see him talk about Sherlock and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Half because they're my favorite shows right now, and half because I'm sure there a whole lot of things wrong with Sherlock.
    (I even identified a lot of things Sherlock himself did that'd mess up the evidence my first time watching the first episode and I'm a random teenager with no knowledge of this sort of thing.)

    This joker is really trying to tell us that Batman’s finger print finder is impossible but has he ever even used Batman’s equipment? I’d say no. Sounds more like jealousy to me.

    Did you seriously critique Loaded Weapon? An over the top comedy. Really? I am an E.M.T. in life. I also kinda cringe when I see improper medical procedure, but I say it is just for entertainment. I was a paintball referee for years too. Watching the abject safety violations in shows drives me nuts. But again, actors covered with masks is not as dramatic. I just used to tell customers it is real life, not T.V..

  • Roosevelt Brentwood

    i think the critiques of the first scene assume a far greater level of competency and professionalism than can be expected in Baltimore.

    As far as procedure I believe him. But somethings that some sciences go beyond a lab.
    Why is Bones not in this? Lol I'm pretty sure that many of the points he touch on "Bones" got right.

    He's mostly right, however they should get an ME, death investigator, or forensic anthropologist to speak on the death investigation/morgue concepts. Some of his commentary was lacking.

    I just wanna say, for the flash, It's not meant to be a SCI show, theyve only done a hand full of CSI scenes (where Barry goes into major detail) in the whole show of over 100 episodes, and Barry's been doing this stuff his entire life to try to catch the man that killed his mother, so... He's kinda a genius on the topic

    But a lot of these characters are homicide detectives, not forensic analysts, and therefore they ought to be concerned with possible motives.
