NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Show generally

Other mistake: It would appear that (as late as early-Season 5), almost all screen shots of computer forensics include the same hard drive properties screen - it seems to be the same hard drive each time - 111GB, with 93GB used and a 129kb private container on it. I have not noticed whether they are all named drive G:, but several have been. The only thing that changes is the 'header' section, which is manipulated each episode to show something specific (but not real) for the TV audience to read.

Show generally

Factual error: Throughout the show, skyscrapers are consistently shown. The height of buildings in Washington DC is restricted by the Height of Buildings Act of 1910, and there are no buildings taller than 13 stories.

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)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Just after Gibbs lies down on the slab, we see a shot of Ducky smirking. In this shot, we see Gibbs in the background turn on to his side. Camera changes to Gibbs and he is on his back and then turns onto his side. (00:24:00)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Caitlin leaves the Cafe, Tim holds the car door open for her and she gets in. He then closes the door and leans on it. Camera cuts to a different angle and now he is stood up straight and slightly back from the car, with no time to do so. (00:29:05)

Hung Out to Dry - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: While Gibbs and Caitlin are alone with Lt. Roberts trying to gain access to the Armed Forces Registry, just as Roberts acknowledges the critical 48 hours, the reflection of a crew member (presumably camera operator) is visible in the mirror, on the right side of the screen.

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.
