CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Caged - S2-E7

Corrected entry: The CSI team determine a woman died after accidentally ingesting ricin (which she tried to use to kill someone else). She died within minutes of sticking her ricin covered pen into her mouth. According to the CDC, death by ingestion of ricin will occur within 36-72 hours (depending on potency, amount, etc.), not a matter of minutes. And, death could not have been from inhalation during her manufacturing of the ricin. They make it a point to show her burnt-looking tongue as the place where ricin was introduced to the body.

Correction: It is true that Ricin was introduced in the mouth, but it does not state when. Yes, Aaron saw the woman put the pen in her mouth, but this didn't necessarily have to be the only point when she did so. She showed she does have a habit of chewing on her pen so the poison could have been introduced to her body before she was in the cage.

Ellie - S2-E10

Corrected entry: In the parking garage, Nick Stokes is taking pictures and says he has one picture left then takes a picture of Sara Sidle, but when Warrick comes onto the scene Nick takes a picture of Warrick.

Correction: He means he has one more photograph to take of the crime scene, then he is free to take personal photographs. Since he is using a digital camera, he isn't going to run out of film.

You've Got Male - S2-E12

Corrected entry: In the pre title sequence the rider calls the spooked horse "Gunner" yet when Gil asks Jim who discovered the body in the pipe Jim says "Flicka" as it cuts to the horse.

Steven Gee

Correction: Jim is making a joke. There is a famous kids film called "My Friend Flicka" and Jim is calling the horse Flicka as a joking reference to that film.

Overload - S2-E3

Corrected entry: When Grissom is showing the pickle experiment, Warrick says, that the body didn't make any resistance, because of the high ironlevel in the blood, but that can't be, because anything makes some resistance to electric power, but iron just doesn't make that much. So therefore, he should have said, that the body didn't make ENOUGH resistance to make enough heat to make burn marks.

Correction: True, but it's a common usage to say that conductors don't make any resistance while isolant materials make absolute resistance to electric power. It's like saying that you slide on ice because there is no friction between the floor and your foot - there is, but it's too little.

Ellie - S2-E10

Corrected entry: When Grissom puts Warrick in charge of the shift he asks why he didn't ask Nick since "he's more senior than me". However both Nick and Warrick were promoted to CSI-3 in the first season

Correction: This probably implies that despite the fact that they were both promoted, Nick was hired first.

Mistakes

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.
