Forensic Science: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

Forensic science used in criminal trials can be surprisingly unscientific. Maybe a new television procedural could help change the public perception. Connect with Last Week Tonight online……


  1. "monkey law and monkey order" would be an amazing show for hbo. also the one of identifying blood in a pool and also the crime scene idiot. LOL

  2. Hey, to any of my fellow Canadians out there who think we need to get the death penalty back in our country to get people who are thinking about committing serious offenses to not do them…this is the exact reason we abolished it in the first place. Why would we legally kill someone if there's a chance that we might very soon find out he was 100% innocent all along? (never mind all the moral and philosophical ramifications)

  3. Who cares about forensic science? I just wanna see more Monkey Law & Monkey Order!

    🎼Dun Dunnn AAAAAHH!!

  4. I hate that he makes me laugh so much. He's a comedy treasure truly. But….didn't adam ruins everything cover this first? along with a few other of his episodes…..

  5. CSI-"Crime Scene Idiots". Pricelss. I've worked with an atty in Dallas that's on the Innocence Project. They've gotten over 20 guys off death row. That's really saying something for TX because they have some real idiots in law enforcement and in the criminal justice system here. Always remember the next time you're on a jury that is always better to let a guilty man go free than to take away the liberties of an innocent man. Its called reasonable doubt.

  6. I am happy that gave time to the topic. But you should have given credits to Netflix's exhibit A

  7. Jeez messing up a Burger at McD's is one thing, but messing up on forensics on a murder case?? Incompetence & Arrogance.

  8. Wow, John, so negative on this one. You really come across as more biased when you leave out all the once-respectable methods we have already debunked and thrown out of the courts. Forensic evaluations like the swimming test, which required the accused to be stripped and bound before being thrown into a lake to see if they float, or pricking tests, which were once considered to be a very reliable means of detecting a witch's mark.

  9. "if we don't have something solid by tomorrow, D.A.'s gonna have my ass."
    "why would the D.A. have your ass? we don't work for the D.A."
    "the D.A. is gonna have my ass ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)"
