    Hey everyone, we posed this question on Twitter, but would like to have a less fleeting forum so we can get more responses.

    We're interested in hearing what EVIDENCE from early cases you think is truly iconic. What PHYSICAL EVIDENCE has stuck in your head the most from the last 13 years?

    Example: the buffalo pendant from Blood Drops, or the Miniature models from season 7...

    We have a decent list of what WE think is iconic, but we'd like to know what the fans' favorites are. List as many as you can think of!

    Signatures from the serial killers: the miniatures, Paul Milanders' tapes, the blue paint from the Blue Paint Serial Killer all come to mind.

    The eyeball from Got Murder

    The plastic bag from Stalker

    Plexi-glass coffin in Grave Danger and even the red ants

    ETA: The finger from the same titled episode

    Cassie's "gum drops" from the episode of the same name. One of the best episodes from start to finish.

    Grave Danger-Plexi Glass

    Gum Drops-Cassie's Gum
    Great episodes by the way.

    Some of the best episodes are usually featuring a much ignored character and actor.;)

    From the Paul Milander case, the androgynous hairs; from "Slaves of Las Vegas" the liquid Latex; the potato being used as a silencer in "And then there were none"; the Miniatures, and the lack of evidence being evidence with Squeegel.

    The bullet in "One-Hit Wonder" (lodged in a spine)

    The blood spray on the wall that wasn't evidence at all in "Scuba Doobie-Doo"

    The chainsaw in "Toe Tags"

    The bugs in "Sex, Lies and Larvae" (which was possibly the first time we really got to see Grissom and his bugs)

    The thread from the oven mitt in "Gentle, Gentle"

    The gum drops that Cassie dropped in 'Gum Drops'

    The signature on the co-ed's penis in 'Pledging Mr. Johnson' :lol:

    The fire ants in 'Grave Danger'

    All the evidence in 'Ending Happy' :lol:

    Hammer in the tree in 'If I had a Hammer'

    The blood spatter that belonged to a live person in 'Scuba Doobie Doo' and well, the Scuba diver in the tree too

    Sam in 'Play Dead' He was evidence until it was proven he wasn't. :)

    I'll have to think of more.

    CriticsCubby - I was just thinking to myself, they're all GSR related - then I read the bottom of your post! Much appreciated it! :thumbsup:

    So, iconic evidence, this takes a bit of thought... and this will probably reflect the episodes/cases I most enjoyed as well:

    - The suicide tape in the Millander series
    - I'd also second penis signage in Pledging Mr J.
    - And the bugs/blanket fiasco in Sex, Lies and Larvae
    - Toilet doors in the I-15 Murders
    - F.P carving in Boom,
    - The tooth in Table Stakes
    - Ketchup Semen in Strip Strangler
    - Carpet Fibres in Overload
    - Soap in Scuba Doobie Doo (and of course... chalk) And blood spatter, and scuba up a tree...
    - Potato Silencer in And Then There Were None - And female disguise for Tammy Felton
    - Female hair in Identity Crisis
    - The finger in The Finger
    - Video Tapes in Stalker
    - Chocolate in Revenge is Best Served Cold (and Cath and Nick's driving experiment :wub:)
    - Knee imprint on the sheet in The Accused is Entitled
    - The CHH hair in A Little Murder, as well as the nousse, and Catherine (as evidence - this is one of my favourite episodes)
    - Blue Paint, in the Blue Paint Killer episodes - and the bin liners
    - Spur in Snuff
    - Eyeball in Got Murder
    - Bamboo stick in A Night at the Movies
    - Innoko Water in Last Laugh
    - The green glass in Play With Fire
    - Tongue DNA in ear in Assume Nothing (Cath&Nick :wub:)
    - Raccoon suit in Fur and Loathing (and ipicac and civid oil)
    - Bullet/Jello experiment in Coming/Crime of Rage (Cath&Nick :wub:)
    - Butterflies in Butterflied (OF COURSE!)
    - Blue feather in Crow's Feet
    - Matchbook with old print in Mea Culpa
    - Package from Walter in Grave Danger with USB Live Feed, and 'Outside Chance' - The Turtles, and the fireants, and the flexiglass, and Kelly's tattoo, and Walter's thumb
    - The miniatures in the MCSK episodes (Best storyline of all time!)
    - Dental impressions in Sweet Jane
    - Fake evidence in Redrum (SUCH a good episode!)
    - The gun with Keppler's prints on it in Law of Gravity
    - Bleach in Lab Rats and beyond
    - Decapitated head in A La Cart
    - Planted tooth in Goodbye and Good Luck


    I sort of lost interested past then - hope that's helpful!

    Oh yeah, I forgot a few. :D

    The evidence in 'ReDrum' that lead Nick to believe Catherine and Keppler were doing something wrong.

    Peanut Shells in 'Evaluation Day'.

    The secret 'nursery' in 'King Baby'

    Blood on Nick's shirt in 'Rashomama' - after all, it made him have to take his shirt off. :D :drool:

    From Overload: the nail in the boot (and the pickle experiment)

    From Burden of Proof? : the meat bullets.

    From Dead Doll: the car mirror

    From Bloodlines: the chimera

    From Secrets and Flies: discovery of the contaminated flies affecting TOD.

    From Mea Culpa: the latent fingerprint on the matchbox.

    From The Accused is Entitled: the bloody scar print on the sheets.

    From Who Shot Sherlock: the hidden gun on an elastic band.

    The miniature models, of course.
