CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

The Lost Reindeer - S14-E11

Corrected entry: Jayse, the reindeer owner, states that reindeer are indigenous only to Iceland. Dead wrong, reindeer also exist in northern north America and Canada, as well as in northern Europe and northern Asia. (00:10:00)


Correction: That's not what he says, nor means. He said the snow reminds the reindeer of Iceland, "the only place you can find real reindeer." But this would be like a New Yorker saying "New York is the only place you can get real pizza." He simply feels Icelandic reindeer are the real thing and everything else is a subspecies of Caribou.


Show generally

Factual error: In a number of episodes people are shown eating and drinking in the laboratories. For instance, in "Miss Willows' Regrets" Nick and Greg are seen eating fried chicken in the lab, and in "Overload" Sara eats a sandwich while watching Grissom experiment with her deli pickle. There are other examples. No reputable laboratory (which this is supposed to be) would allow its staff to eat or drink while in the lab. It is basic scientific protocol to prevent contamination of samples or the person picking up toxins on their food.
