Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After Charlie tells Alan that he and Amita have a lot of work to do and that Alan's hovering over them, when Alan walks away from the table we can see the actor's tape marks on the floor where he had been standing, and also more blocking tape on the rug and kitchen floor.

Waste Not - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Around the middle of the episode, Charlie Eppes and Mildred French are discussing in front of a board. She completes an equation and he adds a minus. In the next close shots, the minus disappears and reappears with angle changes. After three or four changes, a circle appears around the minus.

Trivia: Judd Hirsch is an astro-physicist and can actually do the math Charlie does on the show. He caught the acting bug in school and chose that over physics.

In Plain Sight - S2-E8

Question: This question is about the mistake where a SWAT officer has a magazine backwards in his MP5. I know this would be impossible on a real weapon. But, how could it have happened in filming? Rubber cast weapon? Very badly worn prop weapon? Set armourer with a hammer and no clue?
