Bad Day to Be a Hero - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the conversation with Icepick, his hand has perfect consistency as far as the pose goes, with one finger stretched along the receiver. What changes is the position of the hand, though; you can tell that between shots the tip of his forefinger is lower or higher up on the intercom phone, sometimes so high to be off the top of it.

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Higgins sees from the live security cameras that Alan Sako arrived on the 22nd floor, elevator doors -just - starting to close. Then some humorous bickering ensues between Magnum and her; you'd think the two would have better things to do in a highly time sensitive life-or-death situation than go for gags for the audience, but no worries; when she looks back at the monitor 15 seconds later, Sako is still there with the elevator doors that are still closing behind him.

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Magnum and Higgins are checking out of the fourth address TC gave them; they walk around a palm tree in the first shot, and the street and asphalt are in the shadows. Reverse shot when they talk about 'mansplaining' and that part of the road is all nice and sunny. (00:24:30)

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: TC rings Magnum with a lead about the quad bikes rented out. Magnum instantly leaves to pursue that - however, in the first shot of him riding into the sunset with the Ferrari he is wearing a different (light blue) shirt and is alone in the car, while he arrives to his destination wearing the navy henley he had on all along, and with Higgins at his side.

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Amy Hill holds the book with the picture of the uhiuhi plant with her hand on top of the junction between pages in close-up. Nowhere near there in the previous and following shot. (00:14:50)

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After Amanda Sako botches a pose and talks with Higgins, she asks her "What makes you such an expert" while Perdita Weeks is leaning forward, taking the arm away from the knee to move the hand over the other leg on mat. At the response about age, she is in the same pose she began the previous shot in, with the arm over her raised knee. (00:11:35)

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: During the yoga training, Amanda falls forward during a toestand. Higgins in the wider shot is touching her back, while her hand was lower in the first shot; also she falls with her hand within the platform, but as Apollo hops over to lick her face, her arm is off the platform.

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Detective Gordon Katsumoto passes his phone to Magnum so he can check out of the ziplock wounds. Magnum holds it with his left hand, in close-up too. New shot, and he's holding it in his right hand. (00:10:20)

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: During the yoga training, Higgins asks Amanda "You think I do this to stay in shape?" Amanda's braids are both in front of her shoulders, but when she gives her a quizzical look the right braid is behind the matching shoulder. (00:08:55)

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Magnum goes upstairs with Amanda's mom and dad and finds her on the bed browsing the family album. Pay special attention in close-up; the leftmost is a brightly lit portrait-style picture. Makes rather noticeable that Amanda is turning the same page over and over in the different separate shots. (00:03:25)

The Ties That Bind - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Katsumoto opens the fence with his left hand holding the torch and walks through it, but the arm is already raised in the following shot. (00:00:25)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Factual error: Devon's password is his name spelled backwards, Nevod - but Windows (which he seems to be using, but in the day and age this show was made, it's pretty much a constant) has a minimum of 6 characters for a password. (00:19:00)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In the hospital waiting room, Rick and Magnum answer in unison "Brooks" to TC. TC in that same shot lowers his hands, but they are up (so he can lower them) in the next close-up. (00:36:15)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Bobby asks Magnum to see the message from his brother William Malua, Magnum holds the phone with 2 fingers on top in the close-up, 3 fingers on top in the other shot. (00:33:30)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: After discovering the body in the trunk, Magnum sets a meeting up with the bad guys. When they get out of the car, in the longshot the car and all the ground around it are in the sun; in the closer view the car casts a large shadow. (00:29:10)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Magnum told Bobby Malua about his brother and that he can't leave the island without first saving him. There's a close-up of him saying "Look..."; do look, and you can't Miss a big lock of hair across his bloodied eye. But in the next shot, it's gone. (00:14:50)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Factual error: The lease contract that Magnum inspects puts the City of Haleiwa in the "County of Hawaii" in the State of Hawaii, but it's Honolulu county, not "Hawaii." (00:09:40)

Die He Said - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Outside the hospital, in the first shot (the nurse directs Magnum to Mr. Malua) the sun is noticeably higher on the pillar than in the rest of the scene. (00:02:00)
