NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Swan Song - S8-E23

Other mistake: When EJ gets spooked near the end and turns to face a wall with a doorway to "North Stairway C", she faces the camera with her torch facing the camera directly. However behind her is a perfect shadow on The Wall of herself. This shouldn't be possible as the only source of light, as shown, is from her torch. Cade and Levin are in a different room so couldn't be their torches. (00:39:20)

One Last Score - S8-E17

Visible crew/equipment: After Tony says the line "What would Steve McQueen do?" we get an extreme closeup of the front bumper of a car with Virginia plates on it. Just to the screen right of the plate, you can see the reflection of some of the filming rig used for the shot. (00:31:50)

Royals & Loyals - S8-E4

Factual error: When Tim is tracing the British agent's mobile phone it shows that the number traced is a British land line number (01632) not a mobile number (starting 07...). The number is also seven digits long, not six as is the format in the UK.


Season 8 generally

Plot hole: For such a dangerous serial killer, Lt. Cobb should be more securely restrained than he is. He wears a simple pair of handcuffs, with only one security escort.

Out of the Frying Pan - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: Vance slams the axe on the table and through a picture of the victim. However, when Vance removes the axe a minute later, the axe is through a different part of the picture. The 1st time the axe goes through the neck/shoulders of the man in the picture but when removed it's in the forehead. (00:29:50)

False Witness - S8-E10

Continuity mistake: At the start, the disk falls out the paper and the case is touching the door mat. When the shot changes to a close up of the case being picked up, the case is no longer touching the mat. (00:01:05)

Freedom - S8-E13

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Ziva are first in the pool hall, Tony has 2 balls (1 red, 1 green) in his hand. In one shot they are in his hand next to each other in a horizontal line. Camera changes and now they are next to each other vertically. (00:07:30)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Gibbs: I heard you quit, Agent Todd.
Kate Todd: Happy news travels fast. Yes, I resigned. It was the right thing to do.
Gibbs: Yep. Pull that crap at NCIS, I won't give you a chance to resign.
Kate Todd: Is that a job offer?

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.
