    Stuff like this is why I prefer documentaries and more realistic dramas (or straight comedy). Maybe it’s a good thing, I don’t know, but rock em sock em/over the top action or super hero movies just don’t do it for me =\

    On the negative side.. we are trying to make programs that explain exactly how to get away with murder.

    Did you really have to do a video for how completely fake crime scene shows are? LOL

    The more stand out unrealistic thing about the "forensic science" in The Flash is that Barry Allen is the only one in the precinct.
    Even in small towns, there is more than one person working in that department, and that's a big city.

    what bothers me is that we're generally so dumb that they don't even bother hiring a professional for consulence before making Billion Dollar series, we don't even notice these things

  • Kt Madura

    Hold up, they chose Castle as an example for forensic anthropology?!? Why didn't they do Bones? The main character is literally the world's best forensic anthropologist. Every examination in that show has a skeleton at some point. They should have done that

    He says in the video we can’t prove the “why” with science but last I checked psychology and sociology were sciences so assuming you can’t prove the why with science is completely asinine you can’t cherry pick what science is science is a mix of many things biology chemistry psychology sociology anatomy this is my only problem with the video

    First of all, don’t critique Barry Allen. His brain is faster than a super computer. He doesn’t need any equipment.

    Since the producer of this video opted to only include clips with filthy language, I'll move on to a video focused on quality and integrity. Didn't get past 30 seconds. What a disappointment. This could really have been interesting and fun to watch. What's wrong with you? Seriously, is that REALLY necessary?

    You said they would never destroy the body to get off those handcuffs. But what about the collar bomb bank robbery? The investigators quickly had him decapitated to get the bomb off. His family was actually very upset, but they did it without asking and did it very swiftly.

    You would think movie directors would have a forensic expert (or an expert on a certain subject) on set to help critique the finer details.

    When he said it was unrealistic that Barry could tell the difference between human and animal all I thought was like Umm having had lots of puppies and younger siblings I KNOW the difference between dog and human also my school has a farm and human and farm animals smell very different. I found that part to make a fair amount of sense but that’s just me.
