I have been watching the past Spooks shows recently and I came across one of the stupidest things I have seen in a while. TV shows and films commonly mock up gadgets and other high tech devices, sometimes these are done well and sometimes they are not.

As you can see someone is putting a microchip with parts of its legs cut off into a card reader! I guess this type of thing goes unnoticed to most people but its a stupid unnecessary thing for the shows producers to do and in my opinion spoils things.
