Opens Our Eyes to an Unknown Problem
24 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show leads us to be aware of one thing: CSI is a bunch of baloney. I mean, we all know this, but how much do we know this? Much more now!

We see bodies stored in refrigerated trucks rather than proper coolers, and find out the flaws of some places that have elected officials decide how people died, and others that hire incompetent people like Dr. Thomas Gill who consistently get causes of death wrong and sometimes even outright lie. If this show did nothing else, it ruined any positive reputation Gill could ever have.

But this is important: you "call a homicide an accident and a murderer goes free", or you call an accident a murder and an innocent citizen goes to prison! But at least most of these places seemed more well put together than one in particular: in Massachusetts they lost body parts!
