NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

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.

Spider and the Fly - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Right at the end, the dying Poloma reaches up and touches her brother's right cheek. Her bloody fingers leave a trail behind. This disappears in the next shot when Alejandro turns his head to look at Gibbs.

Suggested correction: The smear is still present but due to the lighting it's difficult to see. You can see it just as he starts to turn his head to Gibbs.

Worst Nightmare - S8-E2

Visible crew/equipment: While Gibbs and Ziva are interviewing the teacher in the classroom at Quantico, in the wide shot facing Ziva as she confirms the number of students, there are two red tape marks on the floor beside the two back legs of her chair. (00:05:20)

Worst Nightmare - S8-E2

Factual error: When McGee tracks Mason's first phonecall, he says the line has been forwarded to a skype number. When he does the IP address shows up on the screen as 212.11.256.192. An IP never goes over 255. (00:11:40)

Short Fuse - S8-E3

Other mistake: Tony logs into Abby's email, however he mis-spells her surname on the login details. He spells it Scuito when her name is spelt Sciuto. The I and U are the wrong way round. (00:06:00)

Short Fuse - S8-E3

Audio problem: When we first listen to the 911 call, the woman says, "there's no rush" however the audio playback bar is at a point on the screen that shows no spikes in the pitch. (00:06:40)

Short Fuse - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When the bomb timer is discovered, Dempsey is stood next to the bomb as seen on Monitor 1 of the control room. The camera pans across, past monitor 2 and onto Monitor 3 which is still the same room but a different angle. On Monitor 3, Dempsey is now around 3-4ft away from the bomb. (00:14:00)

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.

Dead Air - S8-E5

Audio problem: The audio that Tony plays back which features the shooting is completely different to that which we see/hear at the start as the shooter walks into the studio. (00:01:20 - 00:06:30)

Cracked - S8-E6

Revealing mistake: When crossing the street the victim puts her hands on the hood of the car. If you look closely you will see the hood has prints on it from multiple takes. (00:00:15)

Broken Arrow - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: At the start, the way Ziva holds her passport differs when McGee asks to have a look at it. Note her middle finger is on the back of the passport and visible at the top in the middle. However, from behind, her hand is not on the back of the passport. (00:01:50)

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.
