Another one bites the dust?

Most of those shows are shot in such darkness (in order to affect a "film noir" tone) that I would be surprised if they could tell one or more bones from one or more stones.  CSI is the only show I know of where they walk round in broad (Nevada) sunlight all day long shining flashlights everywhere.  Besides which, the agonized acting is wooden and of low caliber.

Heard on CSI:

[Holding up a bone]: "Looks like a human _vertebrae_."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
