The CSI effect

I was told by someone in the legal profession today that there is an interesting problem occurring with juries: they are expecting police and crime scene investigators to be able to do too much because of what they've seen on the television show CSI.  Apparently in many cases, prosecutors and attorneys are spending time with juries prior to trial to explain what can and cannot actually be done in the real world vs. what is shown on the television program.
