Criminal Minds

Sick Day - S12-E2

New this month Character mistake: When they are delivering the profile, Rossi says "he's already picked his next victim; an adolescent boy." The victim is a girl.

Thisisal

Damaged - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: At the start of this episode Rossi tells Garcia about the case he's obsessed with, "It's the 20th anniversary of this crime. Twenty years tomorrow, three children woke up and found their parents murdered." However, during S3xE11 "Birthright," while working on their current Wilkinson case, Rossi shows Caulfield (the sheriff of the original Wilkinson case from 1980) the victim's charm bracelet he carries, then tells him about the Indianapolis case he's never forgotten, and how every year since then he's called the victims' children. And later, after Caulfield tells Rossi it's been 27 years since his own unsolved case, he asks Rossi how long it's been for him and Rossi says, "21," then Caulfield cautions, "Don't let it get to 22."

A Real Rain - S1-E17

Character mistake: In the initial meeting at FBI headquarters, the agents mention the Zodiac killer. Gideon says about him "Yeah, and he killed for 30 years without being caught." In actuality, the Zodiac's known victims were killed between 1966 and 1970. In letters to the public, Zodiac claimed responsibility for several other murders (most of which were solved without being attributed to Zodiac), but no later than 1974. Gideon's statement was off by at least 22 years.

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.'.

Birthright - S3-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Prentiss, Morgan, Rossi, and Caulfield go see Mary Wilkinson, in the wide shot just as Caulfield says, "Hello, Mary," the second camera filming from another angle is visible at the right side of the screen. Additionally, later when Chrissy confronts Charlie she's wearing one earring in her right ear, but after she shoots him that one earring is in her left ear.

The Tribe - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: After the BAU capture "grandfather," when Hotchner has Reid on his cell's speaker, just as Reid says, "He spent 22 months in prison...," we can see the shadow of the boom pole and mic on the ground behind Hotch.

The Caller - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, a St Louis couple has reported their son missing. At the FBI briefing, the agents are told that the boy's mother tucked him in at 10:00pm. A few minutes later, we hear the radio call over footage of police at the home, and the dispatcher says "Last seen at 2100." That's 9:00pm, not 10:00pm.

Nightguy

Derailed - S1-E9

Factual error: The train car in which Elle and the other passengers are held hostage is supposed to be an Amtrak type long distance railroad car traveling from El Paso to Dallas, yet on the inside of the car we can see a large poster showing the Washington, DC Metro system map.

In Heat - S3-E17

Character mistake: When Morgan looks up Charlie Luvet's car GPS map history, the last address reads "11257 Palmdale Drive," but when Morgan phones Hotchner with the address he says, "11257 Palm Drive."

Machismo - S1-E19

Visible crew/equipment: When Captain Navarro and the team are at the elderly victim's home, after Elle finds the bead from a necklace, in the next wide shot of Morgan, Navarro, Gideon, and Hotchner, the red T-mark can be seen on the floor in front of Gideon.

Proof - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cy sneaks into the house with the key under the mat, in the bedroom he picks up the triple gold frame with two photos of Matt with Lyla and one photo of young Lyla in the blue dress in the center frame, then he holds it to his face and places it back on the right side of the dresser. However, after Cy hears Lyla coming into the house, when she sees the underwear on the bedroom floor the frame on the right side of the dresser is now a double wood frame with only one of the same photos seen earlier.

Profiler, Profiled - S2-E12

Character mistake: Derek Morgan says that he discovered the body of a dead boy in 1991 when he was 15 years old. Later on, you see Garcia searching the computer for personal info on Derek Morgan. According to the computer; Derek Morgan was born in 1973 which would make him 18 years old in 1991, not 15.

Blood Hungry - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Gideon realizes the unsub is a cannibal, Garcia enters the office behind him and shuts the door. In the next shot, the door is wide open.

A Higher Power - S3-E15

Other mistake: When Garcia tracks down Peter Redding's current address, we see a close-up of Garcia's computer screen and the address reads "12859 Beckler Ln.," but when the BAU and police arrive at Peter's house the number is 4433.

A Higher Power - S3-E15

Other mistake: When Prentiss and Morgan are trying to figure out how the victims were controlled, Prentiss phones Garcia to find a drug that would temporarily paralyze or subdue. Then just as we hear Garcia answering the call, there's a close-up of Garcia's computer screen and we see the picture of five suicide notes, and at this point there have been six victims. Then later, after the seventh victim is found, when Morgan holds the latest suicide note in the close-up, we can see it's the same note that's already been shown.

Damaged - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Rossi is telling Prentiss, Morgan, and JJ about the original Galen case, he says that the Galen parents were butchered with an axe, but in "Birthright", he tells Detective Caulfield that they were beaten to death.

All That Remains - S8-E14

Revealing mistake: When Agent Hotchner receives a text from JJ while interviewing the suspect, it is actually a screenshot. You can see Camera Roll in the upper left hand corner, "2 of 2" where JJ's name should be, and the Share/Play/Delete banner at the bottom. It is covered by Agent Hotchner quickly tapping on the screen to clear the banners.

A Thousand Suns - S10-E3

Continuity mistake: The original plane is a 747, (four engines on the wings, two aisles). The plane that Reid gets the plans for is a 727 tri-jet (three engines on the tail and one aisle, not wide body). The plane in the walk through by Reid is a wide body of some sort, but not a 747 (two aisles with three seats in the middle).

Unfinished Business - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene (after the credits), Elle's hair is in bangs. In the scene where they discuss the killer using zip ties instead of ropes her bangs have suddenly grown in.

No Way Out - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When George is talking about the school bus, you can see the shadow from a microphone in the bottom left hand corner.

About Face - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Senior SSA David Rossi is clean-shaven in the beginning and middle of the episode. Toward the end of the episode, which takes place over mere days, he has magically grown a full mustache and beard which disappears and reappears in the last scenes.

Machismo - S1-E19

Factual error: In this episode Gideon mentions Andrei Chikatilo, and says that he lived in Ukraine (and that this is why he remained uncaught for so long). While Chikatilo was born in Ukraine, he lived in Russia for most of his life, and all of his murders happened here. An expert like Gideon should not make this kind of mistake.

In Name and Blood - S3-E2

Other mistake: The boy says he is doing multiplication and the rest of the class is still on long division. You can not do long division without first learning multiplication.

The Sandman - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: After Garcia traces the phone call, Morgan and Rossi are shown driving to the area of the cell tower. When the shot is from outside the car, the car is a 10th generation (07-14) Chevy Suburban. When the shot changes to inside the car, it's an 11th gen (15-16).

The Stranger - S6-E21

Audio problem: When Reid and Morgan are walking up the stairs to the first victim's apartment they are talking, but their mouths aren't moving.

3rd Life - S3-E12

Factual error: When Garcia asks Reid about the IP address of one of the victims father's computer he says "374.54.12.3." On screen also the IP address of the router can be seen which reads "192.3.16.7894. Neither is possible. The numbers in any IP address can only range between 0 and 255, since they are actually 4 groups of 8 bits each.

Demons - S9-E24

Continuity mistake: While Reid's asleep in the hospital bed, Garcia places four Doctor Who figurines (one Dalek we don't see her place) on the overbed table - two Daleks, Matt Smith's Doctor, and David Tennant's Doctor. In the first shot Garcia's holding Smith's Doctor in her right hand and Tennant's Doctor in her left hand, but in the next shot those two figurines have switched hands.

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.

The Boogeyman - S2-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When James Charles, the guidance counselor, says, "It could be someone you know, or it could be a stranger you pass at the grocery store," the actors' red T-marks are visible on the floor at Reid's and Gideon's feet. Then when Charles continues to say, "gathering information on the case," we can also see the actor's white T-mark beside the counselor's feet, where he will stand after he introduces Gideon.

Machismo - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: In the elderly victim's home, when Gideon is going through the dresser drawers he finds the small frame with the picture of her son, and there is a blue frame lying in the drawer, but in the next shot that blue frame is lying on the dresser even though he never touched it.
