Embarassing! I was watching NCIS tonight, and they showed a woman having an anaphylactic reaction to "peanut dust" on a pillow (someone was trying to kill her). They show Tony and Ziva not knowing what to do, calling for advice and the Tony finds another passenger who offers his epi pen. Tony pops off the grey tip and flips it around and "injects" the woman, with his thumb over the black tip where the needle comes out, and she has a miraculous turn around.

Even my husband noticed that, and i'm usually the one that notices these things.. don't these shows EVER do research?

Sigh.

I suppose the small mercy is that they showed an Epi at all. Usually in TV shows, someone runs to the drugstore.
