So there you have it. :) skigurl 6 years i doubt that cops or forensic investigators dress like that! MrsRachel 6 years Forensics! Its my secret dream job. lickety-split 6 years lol, forensics! i like the way they have "autopsy" in big, silver, back lit letters above the door on CSI, very glam (and i'm sure very realistic). crystalm07 6 years I have a Forensics degree...wish I could get a job with it! ha starangel82 6 years Forensic investigator. I couldn't be a cop. That and I watch too much CSI and NCIS. pharm_chick 6 years forensic investgator just b/c i wouldnt want to be a cop shiningeyes 6 years I just know that there's no way I'd want to be a cop... so forensic investigator, I guess. Calimie 6 years Cop! Like in The Mentalist, yay! Oh, wait, they do nothing but stand around Jane, right? Doesn't matter, I'm in. pinkmystic 6 years cop :) like Detective benson on Law & Order svu That forensic girl looks very pretty and stylish though Spectra 6 years Considering that both jobs are highly overrated by TV shows, I'd probably be a forensic investigator. Cops usually end up getting a lot of crap for giving out speeding tickets and they probably end up doing a lot of boring stuff if they're in a small town. Forensics could be really cool if you got to work in a busy lab with lots of different types of work. From what I understand though, most forensic investigators in real life basically analyze dirty underwear and sheets to look for semen in rape cases. JaimeLeah526 6 years Forensic Investigator is definitely a cooler job but I'm not sure I'd want to be one. WhatTheFrockBlog 6 years Because CBS owns Showtime. amloveaffair 6 years Dexter's on Shotime, why is their photo courtesy of CBS?
