CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Alter Boys - S2-E6

Other mistake: In the scene where Grissom is talking to the coroner about the man who was shot and strangled with his tie, you can see the actor that played the body breathing. (00:07:30 - 00:08:00)

The Good, the Bad, and the Dominatrix - S7-E23

Other mistake: In episode "The Good, the Bad and the Dominatrix"When the son goes to the bank he tells the manager that there was a million dollars in that account last week, there was 843,508.00 taken out leaving a balance of 31,053.86. That only adds up to 874,561.86. Not a million dollars. He doesn't say close to a million dollars He says there was a million dollars in that account.

Overload - S2-E3

Other mistake: When Grissom goes to the crime scene to investigate, he finds the worker's drill hanging over the edge, still plugged in. Dropping the drill (35-45 pounds) 5-6 feet (the height of the worker) over the edge would have ripped the plug from the outlet and cause the drill to fall all the way to the ground with the victim. (Grissom barely puts any effort into unplugging the drill when he inspects it).

The Good, the Bad, and the Dominatrix - S7-E23

Other mistake: In episode "The good, the Bad and the Dominatrix" When the night watchman is found dead, they say he was shot in the back, there is no bullet hole in his coat.

Boobra

Spark of Life - S5-E18

Other mistake: Episode 18 Season 5 "Spark of Life": Late in this episode, the CSI crew is sitting around discussing the case. Sarah Sidle summarizes the facts in the case, including making the comment that Tara Matthews was attacked by the truck driver "just before her death"; in actuality, while Tara was severely burned, she remained alive in the hospital throughout the entire episode.

Coming of Rage - S4-E10

Other mistake: This episode has four teenagers beat a contemporary to death with hammers, following a practice session with a pile of water melons. The boy is beaten to death sometime during the weekend, - probably on the Saturday.Prior to that is the practice session with the melons, which must be the Friday evening at the latest. The room with the melons is searched on a school day, Monday at the earliest. Yet the melons, in all that Nevada heat after lying around for three days, are still fresh looking, and there are no flies or other insects swarming over the juicy remains.

A Bullet Runs Through It (Part 1) - S6-E7

Other mistake: "A Bullet Runs Through It," part 1; while Catherine is in the lab reviewing the audio tape of the police call to dispatch, the dispatcher claims that the first call she received was at 6:34. First, her lips do not match what she is saying and then when they show the screen with the audio playing, the screen reads "first call 5:43."

Random Acts of Violence - S3-E13

Other mistake: Just after they arrest the Janitor, they are walking out of the building past the employee's. The girl sitting at her chair is not actually typing on her keyboard, her fingers never even press on the keys and her screen-saver is displayed on the screen. (00:37:15)

Scrappy

Grave Danger (2) - S5-E25

Other mistake: There is no way a body can be pulled out of a grave the way they showed. It would be a pretty tough trick to pull off with a 6', 200lb piece of lumber and virtually impossible with a body. If it was a solid, non-flexible piece of material, pulling on the rope would drag the item until it hit a ledge and then flip it out of the grave. The body is very flexible, especially at the waist. You'd have to pull a body from above, which they end up doing in real life.

Revenge Is Best Served Cold - S3-E1

Other mistake: Stokes tells "Michaelangelo" he is looking for a blue Honda, blue rims, blue tint. The picture Michaelangelo shows Stokes and Willows is an Acura RSX, not a blue Honda. (Note: The red Honda that the victim was driving is not the one that Stokes is looking for.) Just because the two car brands are owned by the same parent company does not mean that they are interchangeable when describing them. You certainly couldn't call a Cadillac a GM and not be considered wrong even though they are both made by the same parent company (GM).

Coup de Grace - S10-E4

Other mistake: Season 10, episode 4 "Coup De Grace": When Nick is doing the phenolphthalein test on the q-tip, it turns pink immediately and starts to overflow pink coloring all the way down the side of the stick, which is not how that test works. Normally it takes a few seconds and only turns color around where the blood is.

Doctor Who (1) - S10-E22

Other mistake: In the first scene when we see Dr Langston from behind as he's watching people passing by he's wearing glasses but when we see his face he's not wearing any. (00:00:15)

Big Shots - S7-E19

Other mistake: When CSI Brown is with the mother of the alleged victim, he shows her a picture of the deceased and asks if she knows her. The name on the picture is the one the mother gives (Simone Molinez). How would the correct name be in the picture if the victim had yet to be identified? (00:17:35)

Targets of Obsession - S11-E15

Other mistake: In the shot right after Stokes shoots McCann you can see that Stokes' SW99 has jammed, with a casing sticking out of the chamber.

Jackpot - S4-E6

Other mistake: When Grissom's vehicle is shown driving to Jackpot, Nevada, he is shown to be driving on the wrong side of the road. (00:03:15)

Mistakes

In a number of episodes people are shown eating and drinking in the laboratories. For instance, in "Miss Willows' Regrets" Nick and Greg are seen eating fried chicken in the lab, and in "Overload" Sara eats a sandwich while watching Grissom experiment with her deli pickle. There are other examples. No reputable laboratory (which this is supposed to be) would allow its staff to eat or drink while in the lab. It is basic scientific protocol to prevent contamination of samples or the person picking up toxins on their food.
