Seems like you can't turn on the TV anymore without seeing a cadaver. CSI, CSI Miami, CSI NY, Law and Order x 4, and the latest copy cats of these shows all seem to have an obligatory cadaver (if not 2 or 3) in each show.
It has gotten to the point that I no longer want to donate my body to science. Or at least I want check boxes on the organ donor form that allow me to specify exactly what shows my body can be displayed on. CSI, fine. Law and Order, ok. CSI Miami, only if that blonde chick is assigned to my case. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, I think not.
I was wondering to myself, where do they get all these bodies? Do med schools now have to double up in Gross Anatomy because all the bodies have been taken?
Then I pull out my Parade magazine, getting my weekly celebrity dish fix, and I come upon this article:
Are the corpses used in the various CSI shows actual dead people or mannequins?Whew. Body going back to science.
Neither. They're actual live people. And the competition is so fierce that actors line up to try out for those parts.
