Technical advisers

I have complained before about what a poor job TV and movies do in depicting law, lawyers, and legal issues. Along those lines, this post from Ken Levine (a TV writer/producer-turned-blogger) discusses his experiences with the military technical adviser from M*A*S*H*; there also are some reader comments. None of the stories is about legal advisers, but one can imagine many of the same issues and stories coming up. My favorite is about the adviser for Big Bang Theory, a physics professor at UCLA who writes equations on whiteboards for scenes; apparently he put the answers to his final exam on the whiteboards.
