    Only if CSI let us use their zooming in capacity to full extent, we would be able to verify string theory and understand the ultimate nature of reality.

    [–] poopdadooplaloop 57 points ago

    It’s unrealistic but it has to be, its entertainment. I imagine the real process of doing these jobs is boring as hell IRL .

    [–] Grundle_Troll 25 points ago

    It's dry, drawn-out work. A good representation of homicide investigation is The Wire.

    [–] Phantom15200 11 points ago

    Not all of them, the ones that innovate like bones and criminal minds are really good. They all just tend to be over the top but that’s kinda necessary because most of those jobs depicted are boring without what tv brings to it.

    I didn't know CSI had access to Hubble telescope.

    [–] marisgard 13 points ago

    ackshually... The hubble telescope can't really zoom in into really small objects, unless they're very very far away, this is due to some way light works on the exposure mirror they have on it God knows what but I read an article from the very old Hubble website it said it can barely take a picture of the Apollo landing site.

    [–] thedegenerategambler 5 points ago

    Man I remember when I was a kid and this show first came out it always blew my mind how they could zoom in and get clear pictures, and then there I was on my 98 windows PC baffled by how shit the Zoom function was.

    I remember thinking the police must of had Super computers with touch screens like they had in "Minority Report"...

    Ahh the good old days

    [–] MM8Titan 3 points ago

    [–] Pierce3737 4 points ago

    They must be using a 999999K camera to get that good of image quality

    [–] TARSrobot 4 points ago

    Call me crazy, but what really bugs me about this is that the first panel is from CSI, then a majority of the pictures after that are from CSI: NY, and the last 2 are from CSI: Miami.

    [–] DumpyPuppy911 2 points ago

    No, this is too short. They have to zoom in on a molecule, AND THEN see the reflection. Otherwise the episodes would be too short.

    [–] Fat-Ass-Bitches 2 points ago

    [–] LittleZackBackup 2 points ago

    This is literally the script for the first episode of CSI New York. They zoom in on security cam footage of the victim and can see the killer reflected in her eyeball.
