CSI: Miami

Burned - S5-E22

Factual error: As the firemen are putting out the fire, the water heater explodes, becoming a flying projectile. But you can see that the pilot light is still lit. The fire department would have immediately had all the gas to the home turned off, and the pilot would have gone out.

Triple Threat - S5-E18

Factual error: Toward the end of the episode, they state that one of the sisters had a vaccine for visiting Africa, specifically Dengue Fever. To date, 2014, there is no vaccine for Dengue Fever. You can only spray for mosquitoes or use repellent against them.

Going Under - S5-E2

Factual error: When Eric and Ryan are talking about the motor oil and how the wear and tear on the engine make the motor oil unique to the bike. The oil left on the gun would not have matched the oil in the bike any longer since they were still being ridden and the engine would have still been depositing metal into the oil.

Curse Of The Coffin - S5-E6

Factual error: At the end of the episode when Caine and Delko discover a bomb in the SUV, Delko asks if they should try disarming it, to which Caine replies there isn't enough time. Caine gets in the vehicle and proceeds to drive it away with about three and a half minutes to go before the bomb detonates. We then see an arial overhead shot of Caine speeding down a freeway, during the daytime, with literally no traffic (not one car) around him. This is near impossible on even the least traveled Miami highways in the middle of the day.

Born To Kill - S5-E24

Factual error: Horatio and Detective Tripp refer to Redfish only being able to be caught in one place around Miami - "Mosquito Lagoon." First, Mosquito Lagoon is not in Miami, it is several hundred miles north, and secondly, there are plenty of places to catch Redfish around Miami. I used to live there.

Born To Kill - S5-E24

Factual error: During a interview, Tripp tells a suspect that he helped loosen the lug nuts on a police vehicle. However, when they flash to show the lug nuts being loosened, the actor is turning the lug wrench from left to right which would in fact tighten the lug nuts.

Born To Kill - S5-E24

Factual error: When Horatio is responding to the prison transfer van flipping over, he calls officer down into his Nextel radio. After he finishes speaking, you hear the distinctive Nextel transmission beep from when you would begin a conversation /transmission. If he had been transmitting his call, it would not have beeped after he was done speaking, it would have beeped before.
