Here is a news article that might interest some of those that are CSI fans.

CSI-Like Evidence Unfolds at New Lab
Atlanta Journal Constitution  |  January 11, 2006
Forensic biologist Debbie Glidewell insists the work at the new U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory at Fort Gillem lacks the high emotion, suspense and pathos that people expect from television shows like "CSI."

But sometimes reality tops television.

A few years ago, burglars broke into a residence, took what they wanted and found some chicken wings in the refrigerator. The thieves enjoyed their snack and departed, leaving behind the bones --- and saliva evidence.

"The lab was able to get a swab," Glidewell said with a smile. Investigators easily identified the perpetrators.

Evidence from around the globe --- ranging from chicken bones to a dictator's gleaming dagger --- passes through the gleaming new criminal investigation laboratory in north Clayton County.

One hundred twelve scientists, examiners and administrators clad in white or blue lab coats process evidence for every branch of the nation's military in the $33 million facility at Fort Gillem. The lab, which is not open to the public, has a grand opening today.

The Department of Defense consolidated forensics investigations at Fort Gillem in 1993 after closing other labs in Europe and Japan. Officials expect the lab to remain at Fort Gillem even after the Army base closes in a few years.

The lab used to operate in a cramped warehouse at Fort Gillem. Now, scientists work inside a 88,662-square-foot building where they test DNA and trace evidence of hair, explosives, glass, gunshot residue and explosives.

The lab has a special department to examine documents, such as a threatening letter a rape victim received from her unknown attacker.

Angry that the woman had reported the crime to police, the man created a letter by cutting letters of the alphabet from newspapers, said documents expert Marvin Reid. The letters were pasted onto a lined sheet of paper to form a crudely worded threat: "Don't tell or you'll die."

Document examiners tested the paper and recovered the impression of an earlier letter written on the same note pad. That impression included a major clue: the rapist's signed name.

The firearms division has more than 3,800 different weapons, from commonplace rifles to a silver dagger and gold sheath recovered from one of Saddam Hussein's palaces.

The lab's firearms expert, Don Mikko, told a story that proved nobody can predict how a case will end.

A recent investigation started with an AK-47 assault rifle shell pulled from the abdomen of an American soldier serving in Baghdad, Iraq.

The lab's firearms experts examined the shell and found no rifling marks, which meant the shell had not been fired from any weapon. How was the solider wounded?

"Turns out the soldier went into the field, made an incision in his abdomen and inserted the shell to make it look as though he'd been wounded," Mikko said.

"He wanted a Purple Heart."

I refuse to watch JAG because what's her name is a Scientologist. I cannot watch the show without thinking of it. I also refuse to see any movie with any actor that is. I'm not giving my money to that...

I like Stargate, Man vs Wild, Made in America w/ John Ratzenberger, How It's Made, Monk (favorite), and several others. I like to research some of the actors in a general way to see what they believe. Quite a few are athiests and agnostics. Stargate, surprisingly, has characters after a mission saying things like "Thank God".

The "religion" often spoke of on Battlestar Galatica is loosely based on mormonism. Mormons believe their false god lives on a planet called kolob, whereas on BG, they mention, as the mormons believe, pluralistic gods called "the lords of kobol". kobol is an anagram for kolob. This is no accidident and it can be researched online.

If you look closely at Star Gate they talk about people advancing in nature in an ascended fashion, in essence becoming god like themselves, not going to heaven but just evolving. There is a strong concept of evolution in all their statements and ideas. When someone says that someone is a god they so no that they are an ascended being that evolved from normal humans.

There is a religion that a group of people have started that is based on the Star Gate story lines.

I agree.  It is called Scientology, as well as Buddhism, as well as Hinduism Cheesy

And DW I agree that the Stooges are just plain awesome...I have always been more partial to Abbott and Costello though Cheesy

lol  ....  The Star Gate series is based on a mixture of many different religions primarily Egyptology and the teachings of Edgar Cayce. The character Daniel Jackson is supposedly based on a real person that supposedly has found writings in Egypt antiquities that describes a device similar to the Star Gate. It is all conjecture on their part as the real "Daniel Jackson" still doesn't know anything about that device.

Like most such movies today it does a lot to fictionalize religion and denigrate Christianity.

That is one thing that is always bad when it comes to sci-fi.  And that is a weakness of mine in that I love sci-fi.  And thus I love watching SG.  I enjoy how they actually denounce the pagan gods and make them out to be nothing more than technologically advanced beings taking advantage of an ignorant people.  (and I do not mean that say that we believers are ignorant or anything of that nature).

I like the L&O series as well...although not as good without Lenny.

And CI I think is just way to much...that man knows everything and that makes it much less realistic for me...
But that is just my two bits.

Brother Jerry, I'm glad you said that about him knowing "everything". I've said that to my sisters because they love the show. I find it irritating that he knows every single thing about anything. I mean it becomes a bit unrealistic is all...

And I agree L&O isn't the same w/out Jerry Orbach

Seems like since the original L&O there are soooooooo many spin offs. Such as CSI and I think they have CSI Miami, CSI NY right?
