How accurate are shows like CSI?
Not really accurate at all. According to How Stuff Works
, there is quite a bit of inaccuracy in the show. In reality investigations and processing evidence takes quite a bit longer than Hollywood would make it seem. Also crime scene investigators do not deal directly with suspects, and CSI's are only one part of a larger investigatory team.
