Goofs

In the opening credits of Season 1, there is a quick glimpse of someone (probably Warrick Brown) playing blackjack. Three sets of cards are visible - the one in the player's hand, scratching the table (calling for a hit) and two hands immediately to that player's left. Because blackjack is played from the dealer's left to right, the two hands to the player's left have not yet been played, yet the cards are face-down between their respective bets and the dealer. In a real game, the cards would have been dealt on the far side of the chips (toward the player). If the hands were in play, the cards would either be in the player's hand or under the chips (indicating a stand). As it is, the cards would never be in the position they are in. (Even if Warrick were playing all three of the hands, they would be dealt in alternating location - one in front of the chips and the next behind, never two consecutive hands in front of the chips.) Also, one of the hands is laid on the table such that it is partially covering its bet - something the casino would not allow because of the constant surveillance of the players' bets. See more »

Entertainment on steroids
4 August 2004 | by =G=See all my reviews

The hugely popular "CSI" is no less than a contemporary entertainment marvel. Finding its stride in season 2 with a formula which pushes the envelope while still being doable, this series packs ample portions of entertainment into 40 minute episodes while staying fresh, delivering palatable doses of science didactically, and, most of all, manifesting a strong sense of social responsibility in all of its subliminals. While most entertainment aims for the crotch, the gut, or the heart, "CSI" goes for the most difficult target, the head, as it teaches forensics and the empirical process while remaining cooly detached from sensationalism and melodrama all the while using the "truth is stranger (and more interesting) than fiction" thesis to its and our advantage. The results are fun and interesting lessons in everything from dwarfism to Down syndrome to anatomy to ballistics to etc. all the while maintaining a social conscience. Whether explaining how S&M is not necessarily perversion to simply dissing Don King, "CSI" is one sweet sugar coated education with solid mainstream values. My favorite lines? CSI1:"There's a sucker born every minute." CSI2: "Yeah. And they all come to Vegas." Truer words....
