The Mentalist

Blinking Red Light - S4-E7

Factual error: When Jane is changing the tire on his Citroen DS 20 he uses a car-jack, but because of that car's hydropneumatic suspension you don't need one. (00:00:19)

Suggested correction: Good one! The DS 20 is a fantastic car and you CAN use the high-lift suspension to lift the car up to change the tire, but you still need the jack stand - supplied in the Citroen kit - to keep the tires off the ground for changing. Most DS owners find it much easier to just use a regular jack.

My Bloody Valentine - S4-E12

Factual error: Lisbon is sending Van Pelt to El Oro State Forest. Van Pelt says, "El Oro State Forest, that's east of Lake Tahoe, right?" Lisbon says, "Yeah." East of Lake Tahoe is Nevada, not California. (00:01:17)

Strawberries and Cream: Part 1 - S3-E23

Plot hole: In the heat of killing fake Red John, Jane forgot to notice that Craig O'Laughlin never knew about the mall setup to lure Red John. So definitely Gale Bertram himself was in contact with the serial killer which he may have missed first up, but all that time in jail afterwards he could have figured it out.
