Don't even try to challenge my SVU knowledge, you're setting yourself up for disappointment.Just don't learn how to start an IV from the episode where Benson is walked through starting one on Stabler's wife. Generally 90 degree angles are a bad idea for IVs.
- 1Apr 16, '12 by acerbiaSVU is almost always on when I'm studying! I've seen every single episode, so some of them end up being background noise for me, but still - not a day goes by without SVU poppin' up on my TV.
I love watching medical shows (even if they are fiction) because I am so fast to point out how WRONG something is when they do it incorrectly! Then I go to my book(s) and find out what the right answer is (if I didn't know it already), and then I remember it much better. As a bonus, I feel awesome that I found an error not everyone would be able to point out! Grey's is notorious for doing things wrong, and sometimes I just can't sit through that show at all.
As far as House, I don't watch that show too often anymore, but when I would, I always follow up with "Medical Reviews of House" on Polite Dissent. The guy that runs that website is an MD and he does very thorough reviews on the medicine behind each episode. It's an awesome source of legitimate information - check it out if you haven't yet!
