NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Family - S5-E2

Revealing mistake: Part 1 - As Tony eats his donut, and spills the jelly on his shirt, it's clear that (the actor) is moving his body to make that 'accident' happen as scripted. As the jelly begins to leak out, he doesn't move; because it doesn't fall as expected, he jerks suddenly, to make the jelly fall on his shirt. He stops moving, 'shocked' at this, holding the donut with both hands. Part 2 - The camera angle changes to 'behind' him, and he is only holding the donut with one hand. Part 3 - He then grabs at a napkin (just out of frame) to clean it off; the camera cuts to Ziva briefly, then back to Tony, who does not have any napkin. (00:24:55)


Chimera - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: In a close up of the iPod there is 1 song on the play list, playing at the 29 second mark. However, the icon to indicate that the iPod is on repeat is missing. Therefore, the iPod has only been playing for 29 seconds, despite the fact the crew left a good time before the team arrived. (00:07:20)

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.
