Cloak - S6-E8

Plot hole: Season 6, episode 8 ("Cloak"). When Ziva and Tony take the elevator two floors down this takes a full minute. When in a hurry for a call it speeds down, yet for this conversation it (conveniently) took a minute.

Suggested correction: That's because whenever they get a call, or use the lift we see them get in, then arrive where they are going in the next shot. Whenever we see inside the lift it is predominately when Gibbs stops the lift to have a private chat with someone.

Green Piece - S5-E17

Audio problem: Season 5, episode 17 "Green Piece": When Stella is typing on the Apple keyboard she hardly lifts her fingers from the keys, yet we hear a loud clicking sound. That type of keyboard doesn't make that kind of sound, unless you pound the keys with great force. Also, the clicking sounds don't match up with her keystrokes.

Sugar - S11-E2

Factual error: When tracing the "Master Baiter" the detective says she can't trace the subject because "the HTML code is scrambled". There is no such thing as scrambled HTML, and on top of that HTML can never give away any information about a subject's location. Also, she can't get his IP address because it constantly changes. Yet, she does know from what exact wifi-spot he connected. If you get random IP-addresses, for instance by using random proxy servers, you can't pinpoint a location (which was of course why he used this technique).

Bad Blood - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Ricky leaves Michael's apartment he has the envelope with money in his left hand. When the shot changes, we instantly see him walking away empty handed, with the envelope lying on the table.

Scatter Point - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Sam pops open the cabinet with the wire he will later cut, you can see that the wire was cut and glued together again. When Sam cuts the wire some time later, it's in perfect condition. The taping was probably done in reverse order.

Burn Notice (2007)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This basically happens in nearly every episode. Whenever Michael's mom is smoking, which she does a lot, her cigarette and smoke change size and position with every shot. Although it's hard to keep a cigarette burning the same way with each take, it seems as if no attempt was made at all.

Trust Me - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Michael is talking to Barry, Barry's hands change position with each shot. On the table, folded together, holding his glass, etc.

CSI: NY (2004)

Show generally

Factual error: Whenever someone uses an iPhone (which is the phone of choice on CSI:NY), the screen stays lit when talking on the phone. The iPhone has a sensor which dims the screen when you put it to your ear, but only if you're actually making a call.

Loose Ends (2) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Michael is on the phone with the heroin dealer at the docks, he has his phone at his left ear. When the camera moves to a shot from the back, there's no phone near his face (or in the frame for that matter) and his mouth doesn't move while talking. When the shot cuts back, the phone instantly is back at his ear.

Loose Ends (2) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the heroin importer is questioning Sam, he has his hand around his face, with his fingers touching his ear. When the shot moves to the front, his hand is more on his throat and nowhere near his ear. When we cut to the back, his hand moves again.
