Suggested correction: We can see him, on camera, constantly changing his grip because it's heavy and he's trying to hold it.

Yes he changes his grip, but, in some instant cuts, such as the ones shown above, his grip changes instantly.


Forced Entry - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: While Caitlin and Tony are at the hospital in Jeremy Davison's room, when Michelle walks in there are two closeups of Jeremy handcuffed to the bed rail. In the first closeup the handcuff is around his wrist with the double bar facing up, but in the second closeup as Caitlin uncuffs him it's the opposite way, with the single bar facing up. (00:27:55)

Chained - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: After Caitlin shrieks and tells Abby that Gibbs is driving, Abby replies that she's saying a prayer in many languages. It then cuts to a shot of the car Tony's driving, and the reflection of the camera comes into view on Tony's window as the filming vehicle pulls alongside. It's visible again in a following shot.

Lt. Jane Doe - S2-E4

Red Cell - S2-E20

Visible crew/equipment: While Ducky and Gibbs are at the crime scene in the field, in the long shot just as Ducky says, "He took a tumble down the hill," the raised camera crane, camera, and camera operator (feet are dangling off the front of the crane platform) are visible at the left side of the screen.

Show generally

Question: I finally saw the 2-part episode from the show JAG. Does anyone know what happened to Viv Blackadder? I don't recall hearing anyone ever mention the name on NCIS.

Answer: I hadn't seen the backdoor pilots yet but while it wasn't explicitly stated, at least onscreen, I heard somewhere Vivian got either fired from NCIS due to jeopardizing a case, got resigned from the agency, or transferred to the FBI.


Answer: I dont believe it is ever mentioned, but like most pilot episodes the characters are often changed, replaced or even removed in this case.
