    Basically is there a job you wish you could have that doesn't really exist?

    When I was about 15 I always wanted to be an FBI agent like 'Samantha Spade' in 'Without a Trace' until I found out that although you can be an FBI agent you don't get to do what they do on TV

    You?

    Totally the same with CSI etc. If you notice in each drama they all do the same jobs?? eg. CSIs close off a scene, talk to suspects, do investigative lab work but L&O they talk to suspects alone and close off the scenes, Bones they do their own specialist thing (this one is the real one - you get to a do tiny bit of all the fun stuff!)..

    I wish they'd make TV shows which both glamourise and show the reality of a certain job - it's so misleading for kids when they grow up and realise they'll never be able to get that job lol =/
