I have a random thought. I noticed that a lamp in my house frequently turns up in crime dramas! Weird. It's usually on someones office desk, and used for soft, dramatic lighting. I have seen it in the Mentalist, Criminal Minds, CSI New York, and so fourth. I know it's the same model of lamp because it's a fairly distinctive lamp made of chrome with holes on the shade. Maybe the set designers have some sort of inside joke going. Or perhaps it's normal to re-use set props and I just haven't noticed. You know what detectives always say: "there's no such thing as a coincidence.". My lamp is a glamorous movie star!! Ok so it isn't that exciting.
