Television, specifically run-of-the-mill procedurals, has a reputation for either not getting anything right when it comes to computers, or at the very least, the scenarios in which computers are used to progress the episode’s plot are designed by people that actually know how computers work, but are trolls of the highest order. In this installment, we take a look at Bones, a show about Leonard McCoy’s life after the Enterprise — nah, actually it’s a show about solving crimes because of bones or something. In this episode, we see a character’s computer burst into flames because a malware fractal that was imprinted on bones shut the computer’s fans off when the bones were scanned into the computer, thus uploading the virus. It’s all very scientific. Watch the clip after the jump.

- Law & Order: SVU is either really offensive as well, or fantastic at trolling
