"Cold Case" episode alludes to junk science

In the episode "Flashover" of "Cold Case" on 21 March 2010, a chemical engineer (character Dr. Goran Petrovic played by Elya Baskin) refers to the work of a Philly fire marshall ("Ray Crawford" played by Glenn Morshower) as "junk science." The ChemE further states that most fire marshalls only have a high school education.
The defensiveness of the Crawford character to his mis-analysis evoked some of the rationalizations about the "97% patent grant rate" saga.

The episode features music by Pink Floyd. Looks like the character Nick Vera might be gonzo.
