An almost universally loathed show among the pros we surveyed was CSI and its various spinoffs. Level 3 Communications' Drew says that "nearly every use of a computer is inaccurate, but the one that sticks out in my mind is when they used a computer to 'enhance' a photo to find a suspect by zooming into the victim's eyes to show the reflection of the bad guy." It's particular sad because the franchise has an entire spinoff supposedly dedicated to cybercrime.

Christopher Budd, global threat communications manager for Trend Micro, said he tried to watch CSI Cyber but "I couldn't get through more than 15 minutes. There was no grounding in real technology at all."
