CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Who Shot Sherlock? - S5-E11

Corrected entry: Grissom expresses admiration for the (dead) Sherlock Holmes' attention to detail, since he has a cape, a deerstalker hat and a Meerschaum pipe. Grissom - and the dead Sherlock - should know better. None of these items appear anywhere in Conan Doyle's books; they were invented by Hollywood as part of Basil Rathbone's portrayal of the character, and are considered to be abominations by Holmes' afficionados.

Correction: The Deerstalker was not "invented" for the Basil Rathbone series. The artist for the original stories printed in The Strand Magazine, Sidney Paget, illustrated Sherlock with a Deerstalker in such adventures as "The Dancing Men", "Hound of the Baskervilles", and "The Boscombe Valley Mystery". As these were published during the author's original run of the stories, it was there since the beginning.Conan Doyle also mentions Holmes wearing a "ear-flapped travelling cap" in at least one story - "The Adventure of Silver Blaze".He also mentioned a handful of times of Holmes smoking a pipe. Meerschaum is a mineral that a pipe can be carved out of, So while they may not have been a hat (or pipe) that Holmes always used - a deerstalker is mainly used in the countryside, not the city, it certainly was used if only a handful of times.

Snakes - S5-E12

Corrected entry: The singer performing at the bar (the man we later see working in the tire shop) is lip-syncing. At one point, when the camera cuts to him on stage, for a moment the vocals don't match his lips.

Correction: So a singer is lip syncing. This isn't a mistake. Just ask Ashley Simpson.

Swap Meet - S5-E5

Corrected entry: When Greg is coming to see if Hodges has processed the water from the fountain, Hodges asks if Greg can't spell since he wrote "funtain water" on the glass. Greg answers that his folks are Norwegian and this is the way they spell it. That is incorrect. Fountain in Norwegian is "fontene."

Correction: Greg only says that to cover his mistake.

Grave Danger (2) - S5-E25

Corrected entry: Nick was supposed to have a 12 hour air supply while in the coffin, as the suspect mentioned in his e-mail. Nick was buried at night, a whole day passed and he was rescued at night. That was more then 12 hours underground.

Correction: No, the 12 hours was to get the money to the kidnapper. If you recall, Nick's coffin had a fan that was connected to the light. That fan was in a tube that ran to the surface thereby providing him with the necessary air. You are confusing fact CSI determined there was a limited amount of battery time on the fan itself.

Viva Las Vegas - S5-E1

Corrected entry: In the teaser before the theme song, we see Lance Frazer sobbing with the bath water running. Normally, people don't run baths and then go gambling. The owner of the casino said that he had serious B.O., suggesting that Lance hadn't washed. Therefore, we can assume that he has already come back from the casino. However, he didn't lose his money on the way back, it was stolen after his death. He wouldn't be crying and running a bath at the same time. What would he be crying about? It just doesn't make sense.

Correction: What, he could not be crying about something else? This entry moves WAY into the land of speculation and assumption about what people should or could do in a given situation (of which you only see a short instance).

Spark of Life - S5-E18

Corrected entry: In the initial view of the drowning victim, we see an EMT performing CPR on the child. Later in the show, they say it was recently her fifth birthday. The EMT, however, was performing CPR with two hands. On a child of her age, you would only use one hand to perform CPR. Brass also says that they're "just going through the motions", but the EMT would most likely out of habit do it correctly. It makes no sense that a trained lifesaving professional would perform a lifesaving treatment incorrectly, even if he knew it would be ineffective anyway.

Correction: I've been on two health and saftey courses and on both I was told to use both hands whilst performing CPR, even on children.
