"The CSI Effect": CSI's and detectives sometimes pick up a weapon with a handkerchief or by inserting a pencil in the barrel. In real life, the handkerchief might contaminate possible DNA evidence, and the pencil would destroy microscopic markings inside the barrel, making it difficult to match the weapon to slugs retrieved from a victim's body or a crime scene. Instead experts recommend holding a weapon in place with gloved fingertips and sliding a thin, stiff sheet of plastic beneath it.
Due to rights issues at the time of release, the R2 (Europe/UK) and R4 (Australia) DVD releases of Season 1 have The Who music replaced by an original theme from John M. Keane. The Who are still credited in the closing credits.
