NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Dead Man Walking - S4-E16

Factual error: The inspector is suffering from thallium poisoning. However, everyone is using various radiation detection methods to detect the thallium. Natural thallium is not radioactive. Of the artificial thallium, the only with a half-life long enough to last long enough to pose a problem is too weakly radioactive to be a significant hazard.

Shalom - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Gibbs and Ziva are in the "safehouse" Ziva set up for Ari, a crew member and his boom microphone are seen on the left of the screen, right before Gibbs climbs the ladder to remove the hidden camera spying on them. (00:30:10)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Factual error: Air Force One landed in Wichita, Kansas. The local coroner claimed Jurisdiction for Wichita County. The city of Wichita, Kansas is in Sedgwick County, in southern Kansas. Wichita County, Kansas is in western Kansas, about 250 miles from the city of Wichita. (00:05:40)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When he hands Tony the autopsy report, Ducky has hair falling over his forehead, then combed back, then over his forehead again repeatedly from shot to shot. (00:07:15)

Untouchable - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: The camera pans across a line of several anime plushies. When the shot then goes wide, several of the plushies have either been re-arranged or removed completely, including a pink plush and the Kyogre plush. It also seems as though there are two Miroku plushies in the scene as well, one near the middle and one off to the side of the left pillow. (00:04:10)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Other mistake: Season 5, Episode 12, "Stakeout": The picture on McGee's camera phone is just wrong. It shows not just the man in front of him, but it also shows a hand, holding a camera phone - McGee's camera phone. In other words, the phone is showing a picture of itself and the man, instead of just the man. (00:40:25)

Hiatus: Part 1 - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When DiNozzo is watching the ship through the binoculars at the beginning, the film is run in reverse. The sailor smoking on the deck is the giveaway, as the smoke he's blowing is going into his mouth. (00:00:15)

Faith - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: When Tony is leaving to meet Gibbs at the residence of their victim's family, he has his backpack slung over his shoulder. When the shot cuts to McGee and back, the backpack has disappeared. (00:07:20)

The Immortals - S1-E4

Factual error: The episode takes place on the Destroyer DD 964 U.S.S. Paul F. Foster, but every time the ship is shown sailing past the camera you see the number 51 on the side. This is the number of the U.S.S. Arleigh Burke, a DDG not even the same class of ship. (00:11:15)

Suspicion - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Gibbs and the team meet the sheriff and ask to be shown the crime scene, he states that it was in the Edenvale motel room 8. In the opening scene the door that the gentleman knocked on and subsequently got his feet covered in blood from the body bleeding out was room 1. (00:00:50 - 00:04:05)

See No Evil - S2-E1

[Gibbs is drinking a cup of coffee.]
Kate Todd: Gibbs, it's like one hundred degrees in here. How can you drink that stuff?
Leroy Gibbs: It keeps me cool.

Agent Afloat - S6-E2

Trivia: Season 6, "Agent Afloat": Maybe real aircraft carriers posing as fictional ones shouldn't let viewers see their registration numbers. When this episode aired, producers heard from several "carrier purists" complaining that CVN74 is the U.S.S. John C. Stennis, not the (non-existent) Seahawk.
