CSI: Miami

Entrance Wound - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: The compound Heptan-2-one is mentioned several times in this episode. The actress concerned persists in pronouncing the last syllable 'one' as in the number 1, whereas its correct scientific pronounciation should be as in the word 'bone' ie. sounds like 'own'. Nitpicking certainly, but a dead giveaway to any viewer with a basic knowledge of chemistry.

Slow Burn - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: There is a dead (burnt) woman in the morgue. At the end of the episode, Alexx pulls her out of her vault for one last look. When you look at her neck, you will see a pulse. (00:42:30)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Almost all fingerprints throughout the whole show match by 99.32 percent. I have personally tracked it through series 6, 7, 8 and 9 and almost no fingerprint checks resulted in a different match. (Whether this has started in earlier series has to be confirmed).

Dead Air - S4-E21

Revealing mistake: Season 4, episode 21: "Dead Air". At the start, when Horatio looks at the call details, it very clearly reads "no sim card inserted" at the top of the screen. Quite hard for the accidental recipient of the call to have a working phone without a sim card...

Show Stopper - S8-E12

Revealing mistake: When Phoenix bursts into flames on stage during her concert, the burn proof suit the stunt person is wearing (dressed as Phoenix) can be seen (her legs are very thick and her knees have deep wrinkles as well as the suit hem at her ankles can be seen).

Triple Threat - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: In episode "Triple Threat": at the end of the episode when the triplets are being walked out of the building all in a row after being charged with murder, they have their hands behind their backs like they are in handcuffs. When Beth turns around to look at Noah, you see Ashley in front of her with her fingers laced together and no hand cuffs, getting into the van.

Boobra

Show generally

Factual error: Calleigh Duquesne frequently wears completely inappropriate clothing throughout the whole series. She often wears blouses that are so low cut that the neckline is below the lower curve of her breasts. No officer of the court in the US would be allowed to dress this way. There is no grey area here, and this is not a character mistake - first time a CSI turned up at work dressed like that, she'd be sent home to change. Second time, she'd be on suspension until she agreed to change her dress standards. Also (and this regularly happens in CSI: NY as well) she is regularly wearing high heels - also a certain no-no for as CSI. Incidentally, male CSIs have equally strict dress standards.

Season 1 generally

Question: In the last few episodes of series 1, Horatio tells a few people that they will be spending the next few years a jail. But sometimes he says a 6x6 cell and others a 6x9 cell. So I was wondering do the sizes of cells usually differ or was it just a slip of the tongue?

Answer: Yes, sizes of jails differ.
