Paradise - S4-E4

Trivia: Rick Dunkle, a Criminal Minds producer, writer, and script coordinator, has a cameo as Jonathan, the dead driver in the car that was hit by the tractor trailer, at the start of the episode. *Spoiler* Dunkie, who is a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, thought it would be cool to be killed by 'Wesley Crusher' who's played by Wil Wheaton, and who guest stars in this episode.

A Higher Power - S3-E15

Other mistake: When Prentiss and Morgan are trying to figure out how the victims were controlled, Prentiss phones Garcia to find a drug that would temporarily paralyze or subdue. Then just as we hear Garcia answering the call, there's a close-up of Garcia's computer screen and we see the picture of five suicide notes, and at this point there have been six victims. Then later, after the seventh victim is found, when Morgan holds the latest suicide note in the close-up, we can see it's the same note that's already been shown.

Damaged - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: At the start of this episode Rossi tells Garcia about the case he's obsessed with, "It's the 20th anniversary of this crime. Twenty years tomorrow, three children woke up and found their parents murdered." However, during S3xE11 "Birthright," while working on their current Wilkinson case, Rossi shows Caulfield (the sheriff of the original Wilkinson case from 1980) the victim's charm bracelet he carries, then tells him about the Indianapolis case he's never forgotten, and how every year since then he's called the victims' children. And later, after Caulfield tells Rossi it's been 27 years since his own unsolved case, he asks Rossi how long it's been for him and Rossi says, "21," then Caulfield cautions, "Don't let it get to 22."

Continuity mistake: When Joseph wants proof that Melinda sees Julian, the boy asks Melinda to describe the tattoo behind his father's right ear, and we see a close-up of the white dove tattoo that Julian got after his son's birth. Then, while Julian whispers to his son, there is no tattoo behind his left ear, but as Julian walks backwards toward Jim the white dove tattoo is now visible. (00:37:40)

Trivia: The director, Tommy Wirkola, has an uncredited cameo of sorts (seen on screen longer than a usual cameo) as one of Sheriff Berringer's four deputies. Stuntman Wolfgang Lindner portrayed one of the deputies, and is uncredited as well.

The Listener (2009)

The Bank Job - S3-E1

Plot hole: When Toby, McCluskey, and the others are looking at the bank's security camera footage, Toby asks to zoom in on Newman's tattoo, and then Toby asks if he can borrow someone's cell phone so he can ask Oz about the bank manager. It cuts to Oz at the hospital as his cell phone rings - when Oz picks up his cell he presses the button and promptly says, "Hey, Toby, what's up?" It's quite impossible for Oz to have known that it was Toby calling him if Toby was using someone else's cell, and he did not even have the chance to hear Toby's voice. Those telepathic abilities belong to Toby, not Oz.
