CSI: NY

The Lady in the Lake - S9-E6

Corrected entry: Jo is talking to Adam about 1988. She mentions good things happened in '88. She names the songs "Red red wine", "Kokomo" and "Don't worry be happy" as happening in 1988. "Red red wine" is from 1983, from the UB40 album "labour of love". The other two are correct.

ppdixx

Correction: It was rereleased in 1988 in the US as a single, topping the Billboard 100 charts. The original album only reached no. 34 in the US (in 1984), so it makes sense that the single is what she remembers.

The Thing About Heroes - S4-E10

Corrected entry: Stella realises the 333 stalker is Drew because the jigsaw puzzle piece she picked up from under his chair when she was looking for the missing piece from the puzzle with blue crosses was in fact from the puzzle with green crosses, which they had not yet received. Yet she goes back to the lab and places this piece in to the puzzle to complete it.

Correction: Stella went and got this puzzle piece after she found the first piece, from her car, and it was assembled (for them to realise it had a piece missing) but before they found the second puzzle. They then found the second puzzle, noting it also had a missing piece. However, Stella didn't figure out the missing piece they found at Drew's place came from the second puzzle until after Adam explained the x's thing, and she had another look at it, so she could then go place it in the right building, as they had assembled both puzzles together.

Raising Shane - S3-E11

Corrected entry: Season 3, Episode 11 "Raising Shane" - A little over halfway through, Dr. Peyton Driscoll tells Detective Mac Taylor their relationship will not work if they're both working in the same lab. During their discussion Mac calls Peyton "Claire", the actress's real name. He says, "That's not true Claire" and then quickly calls her "Peyton".

Correction: While he does use the name "Claire", it's not referring to Claire Forlani. Claire is Mac's wife, who died on 9/11. Even though he is involved with Peyton, this Freudian slip shows how much Mac still cares about Claire.

Boo - S4-E6

Corrected entry: The New York City Police Department would not investigate a murder in Amityville. It would either be investigated by Suffolk County Police, or a state police department.

Correction: They made a point of saying that all of the normal investigators where working at a plane crash site, that is why they asked them to work on the case.

Boo - S4-E6

Corrected entry: The address of the house in Amityville is 1135 Ocean Ave. However, no house number on Ocean Ave, has four digits while the highest being in the 300s.

Correction: Americans uncommonly use real domestic addresses or telephone numbers in television or film dramas.

Not What It Looks Like - S3-E2

Corrected entry: They manage to identify the African blood diamond dealer by analysing his coat seam’s wear pattern using video surveillance footage. Problem is, in the US Customs footage, they take the seam on the left of his back and in the jewellery store's footage, the seam on the right. There is no way they could match the wear pattern of two different seams.

Sereenie

Correction: The seam in question is in the middle of his back. The only difference in the two pictures is that the diamond dealer is leaning in different directions in each picture. The real problem with this scenario is whether the definition on the surveillence video from both souces is of high enough quality to even make this comparison. That is something of a stretch.

Blink - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Mac shows the picture of a guy to the paralyzed woman, she starts to freak out and her fingers move. She was already paralyzed so that was impossible.

Correction: Paralysed is a somewhat amorphous term. Few people are totally paralysed - Christopher Reeve could move his toes a little. This woman is almost totally paralysed - she can move some of her fingers.

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.
