Criminal Minds

The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Other mistake: At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13'.

A Shade of Gray - S4-E21

Visible crew/equipment: After the press conference, while Emily, Rossi, and Derek are standing beside the SUV, when Captain Lancaster walks over to them we can see the four chalk T-marks on the ground where they all stand.

Mayhem - S4-E1

Factual error: Morgan is following a suspect into the subway tunnels. As he is coming around a corner, you can see the tracks behind Morgan. The tracks are three straight pieces of track making a corner. There is no way a train can make a corner on straight tracks. There should have been curved tracks.

Memoriam - S4-E7

Character mistake: When Reid is visiting his mother, playing Scrabble, he has eight tiles on his rack (ROLOAWAD), but a player can only have seven tiles at a time.

Demonology - S4-E17

Other mistake: Prentiss pulls up to a bar and the shot shows her looking out of the car window. "BAR" is shown reflected in red on the car window, but it is readable from left to right under the closeup of Prentiss's face when we see her. The reflection of "BAR" should have been backwards since it's a reflection of the sign on the building.

The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: There's a clock on the first victim's night stand. When she goes to bed, it's Tuesday, 11:06. When the murder happens a couple of hours later, it's still Tuesday, 1:13.

The Big Wheel - S4-E22

Other mistake: When Morgan calls Garcia to have her search for Vincent, Prentiss jumps in saying he is a mentor. However Morgan had just learned this and didn't mention it on the call.

Brothers in Arms - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Reid is talking there's a big crack at the top of the window that might be a problem since they're supposed to be flying. Then a few seconds later they cut back to him and it's filled with putty. (00:05:00 - 00:06:00)

House on Fire - S4-E19

Audio problem: When Garcia is talking about the cross-examination she's done and how she should be praised for how quickly she'd done it, she crosses the room away from the computers (and the webcam she's shown through) to a bulletin board. While she's walking away, her voice gets fainter, and then becomes louder again when she returns, as though she were getting further and then closer again to a microphone. However, she is wearing a headset with a microphone - the volume wouldn't have changed. (00:13:15)

Zoe's Reprise - S4-E15

Visible crew/equipment: After Prentiss and Morgan catch Eric and his girlfriend in the park it cuts to Prentiss and the girlfriend in the interrogation room, and as the camera tracks backward from the door's window we can see a nice reflection of the moving camera and also a crew member standing behind Hotchner.

Zoe's Reprise - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: When Rossi is in Zoe's bedroom the camera pans the room and we see the laptop on the desk with nothing on its lid, but in the closeup suddenly there's a large embroidered flower sticker on the laptop's lid, which vanishes again when Rossi lifts the lid.

Extreme Aggressor - S1-E1

Agent Hotchner: This is Special Agent Dr. Reid.
Man: You look too young to have gone to medical school.
Agent Reid: They are PhD's. Three of them.
Man: What, are you a genius or something?
Agent Reid: I don't believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory, can read 20,000 words per minute...yes, I'm a genius.

Paradise - S4-E4

Trivia: Rick Dunkle, a Criminal Minds producer, writer, and script coordinator, has a cameo as Jonathan, the dead driver in the car that was hit by the tractor trailer, at the start of the episode. *Spoiler* Dunkie, who is a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, thought it would be cool to be killed by 'Wesley Crusher' who's played by Wil Wheaton, and who guest stars in this episode.
