CSI 24

Dumb idea for the afternoon that some of us around the office came up with, "CSI 24."

It's like CSI, but everything take as much time as it would take in real life, with cuts between scenes like they do in 24. (I haven't actually seen any 24, but i've been given the impression that's how it works.)

We have a scene where we watch some police officers filling out paperwork for several minutes [scene cut] now we spend several minutes watching the device kirinn's company makes scanning a crime scene at the regular rate of a couple hours(?) per room while the cops are out getting coffee [scene cut] now we spend several minutes watching a lab technician sitting around, tapping their fingers on the desk, waiting for the DNA results that they requested several days ago, etc.
