Other mistake: In episode "Kill Switch" it states that Jason Billings died from a broken neck, it shows Tony Decker kicking him in the face snapping his neck. Jason then tries to claw his way up onto Tony's deck leaving the scratches and blood and getting the splinter under his nail. This wouldn't have been possible since he would have already been dead.
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.
Continuity mistake: When Eric is at the rehab center where the TV star was being treated, the camera zooms in from above. Seconds after his chat with the girl to whom the star had confessed murder, the camera zooms back out, but this time, the juices are rearranged, there are new white flowers by the tree on the right, the table is pulled back from the chair, the chairs are no longer right close together, there is a suspended piece of equipment above the table, and there is some funky doodad leaning up against the table that wasn't there before. The sun moved by at least a couple hours during their 30 second chat.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, the bikers are approaching the crime scene to be, and you can see the sun low in the sky in the shot, casting long shadows to the right of the bikes. When they are a little closer to where the shooting will take place, suddenly it is high noon; for there are no shadows except directly underneath the motorcycles.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the broadcast as Jake and Horatio converse in front of the police station. In the closer shots, they and the motorbike are the left of the entrance steps with a car parked on the right, then in the zoom-out shots they are on the right of those steps with a cop car parked on the left.
Plot hole: When Dex is doing the jack in the box ,he is hanging out the sun roof driving with his feet, using the cruise control. When he is decapitated, the body falls and the car spins out and stops. The car's cruise control was still on. The car should have kept going until the brake was pressed. Even if the body hit the brake on the way down, it would have coasted to a stop and not spun out and screeched to a stop.
Continuity mistake: Episode "Just Murdered": When Horatio confronts the couple at the bank after the safe deposit box is opened, you can see that the wife has her earrings on. When they flash back to that scene later in the movie, she doesn't have them on. She shouldn't have them on since she hasn't gone to the lawyer and retrevied them yet. She shouldn't have them in the first scene.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the second half of the broadcast, Calleigh's hair switches back and forth repeatedly between a very straight part toward her left side, and a part that curves toward the center of her forehead. It looks like she changes her hair comb every time she dons her lab jacket.
Continuity mistake: The time sequence in the beginning is very screwy. The victim and her friend are partying inside and it is dark outside. The streetlights go out and the inside lights in the building go off. As the girls come out of the building, it is daytime. Seconds go by, then it is midday. As the girls talk to Mr. Biker/Murderer in the close-ups, the sun is in front of them and their butts are in the shade. In the zoom-out shots, their butts are in the direct sunshine.
Continuity mistake: The real estate mogul is shot on an upstairs balcony. He falls face first and flips over a rail with his head toward the house. He lands on his back on an ice sculpture. When he's shown, his head is facing away from the house. He would have to turn 180 degrees while falling to land in this position.

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.
Other mistake: When the guy's head is cut off, his arms are up in the air next to his head. Yet his head is sliced clean off while his arms remain intact. And they would not have gone slack and fallen down after his head was cut off because they are right next to his cheeks (and the car was moving way too fast to allow for that anyway).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: During the part where Callie and Delko are in the open mausoleum area of the cemetery, Callie snaps a picture at one area of the mausoleum wall. If you look closely, the crypt says someone by the name of 'Thacker' is buried there. Callie then says that the faint woman's voice that had been picked up by the audio surveillance (placed in the cemetery for the storyline with the suspect burying the gold, then getting killed) had occurred about "100 feet" from the spot where she took the picture. However, later in the episode when flashbacks are used, we now see the suspect woman uttering the words that had been picked up on audio, and she is standing right next to the crypt where 'Thacker' is buried, not 100 feet away or somewhere further away in the mausoleum area.
