CSI: NY

Summer In The City - S2-E1

Factual error: The plot is about a mosquito who stung the murderer. Although Gary Sinise mentions (correctly) that only female mosquitoes bite, the one caught alive on the table is a male mosquito (look at its bushy antennae and abdomen which is thin and definitely deflated). All mosquitoes used in the episode are male.

Other mistake: Hawks is handed a pretty small container with some of the victims brains in it, and says there is about 50% of the brain still left out there to find. There is no way half of a brain is in that small container, it's not even filled all the way.

Youngblood - S2-E5

Factual error: When they are looking at footage of the suspect leaving the crime scene they notice something in his sleeve and the computer generates an image of a steering wheel lock. There is no way they could come up with that from the outline in the suspect's clothes.

Bad Beat - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Joel is shot at the poker game, the gunshot leaves a gaping hole in the door. Later, when Mac and Stella return to the crime scene, the hole is gone. The door color also changes from a dull blue to bright blue. (00:03:05 - 00:32:20)

Trapped - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Danny finally gets out of the panic room and Jerry throws him the phone to call Stella, the phone disappears from Danny's hand and then reappears in subsequent shots.

Trapped - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Messer is trapped in Mr Hudson's safe, the newspaper clippings he pulls out from the drawer show obvious Latin dummy text in the articles, while the headlines are in English.

Necrophilia Americana - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Mac is crouched down on the ground and removes a piece of paper from the grass next to the victim without a crime scene glove. He has a flashlight in the other hand with no glove either. The next shot shows him standing with gloves on both hands. (01:20:00)

Heroes - S2-E23

Character mistake: While investigating Corporal Price's death, Danny comments that Price was "found dead at midnight." Price was found the following morning; Danny should have said Price died at midnight.

Charge of this Post - S2-E24

Factual error: when Mac Taylor's ID card from the Marine Corps is being shown, there are two unintentional mistakes and one probably intentional. First, the design of the ID card in no way resembles an actual DoD issued military ID, but this was probably an intentional mistake by the creators of the show. The picture on the ID however, has two unintentional mistakes. First, Marines are never photographed in their dress blues for official purposes; Mac would have been in cammies or service dress charlies for the photograph. Second, Mac is revealed in several episodes to have been an officer, yet he is shown wearing the dress blues of an enlisted man.

Charge of this Post - S2-E24

Other mistake: When Mac is reviewing the fact that the suspect has been researching his background, it displays a US Military separation notice on screen. The word 'separation' is misspelled as seperation, in caps.

Factual error: Lessing is said to have tried to enter the Marine Corps three times but failed the psych test; no psych tests are given when entering the Marine Corps.

Trivia: Carmine Giovinazzo is the first series regular to appear on all three "CSI" series. He made a guest appearance in the Vegas "CSI" third season episode "Revenge is Best Served Cold," his character was introduced in the Miami cross-over episode "MIA/NYC Nonstop," and is a series regular on NY. He has since been followed by Gary Sinise (Mac).

Chosen answer: Probably to broaden the scope of the show's plot and give the audience a chance to see the characters in a different setting, People act differently at home from the way they do at their workplace. By the ninth season, the characters would have become overly familiar and predictable. It gives the writers a chance to do something different with them.
