CSI: NY

Blink - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Mac and co. enter the basement of the house in Queens (the one where the third woman was found) the record player lifts off its needle and moves to another spot on the record, cutting off the sound for a second. However, the music starts again slightly before the needle hits the record.

Green Piece - S5-E17

Audio problem: Season 5, episode 17 "Green Piece": When Stella is typing on the Apple keyboard she hardly lifts her fingers from the keys, yet we hear a loud clicking sound. That type of keyboard doesn't make that kind of sound, unless you pound the keys with great force. Also, the clicking sounds don't match up with her keystrokes.

Obsession - S3-E13

Audio problem: During the sequence where Lindsay is telling them about the tape with the lipstick on it, they show a man tying up a woman. You hear the sounds a woman would make if she was muffled by a gag (tape) on her mouth as she's being tied/struggling throughout the scene, but her mouth doesn't get taped until the end of the scene.

Forbidden Fruit - S5-E11

Audio problem: When Sid hands Mac the test tube with the metal splinter, Mac says "Looks metallic". There is a full frontal shot of Mac's face, and his mouth doesn't move.

Not What It Looks Like - S3-E2

Factual error: Season 3, episode 49 (Not What It Looks Like). Breaking glass with sound is possible, but would not work as depicted in the episode. First, in order to break the glass, you have to force the glass to vibrate at its natural frequency - that is, the frequency at which it would vibrate if it were tapped. Each piece of glass has its own natural frequency, depending on a range of factors including size, chemical makeup, shape, hardness, and manufacturing methods. No single frequency would shatter all the glass in the store at the same time. Finally, in order to break the glass the piece has to be closed-ended. You can't shatter a plate of glass with sound (nowhere for the sound waves to resonate). Please see http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/feb98/887203231.Ph.r.html

Trivia: Carmine Giovinazzo is the first series regular to appear on all three "CSI" series. He made a guest appearance in the Vegas "CSI" third season episode "Revenge is Best Served Cold," his character was introduced in the Miami cross-over episode "MIA/NYC Nonstop," and is a series regular on NY. He has since been followed by Gary Sinise (Mac).

More trivia for CSI: NY

Chosen answer: Probably to broaden the scope of the show's plot and give the audience a chance to see the characters in a different setting, People act differently at home from the way they do at their workplace. By the ninth season, the characters would have become overly familiar and predictable. It gives the writers a chance to do something different with them.
