Spark of Life - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: Season 5 Episode 18 "Spark of Life": when they show a closeup of the badly-burned woman during her debridement, it can be seen that even though her eyebrows and hair and, in fact, 90% of her skin has been burned away, she still has long, full eyelashes.

Toolio

Cross-Jurisdictions - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: When the CSI from Miami and Catherine are in the autopsy, the guy goes to take a sample from the eyes of the dead woman. When he moves the swab towards her eye, you can see the actress' top eyelid move instinctively. She's supposed to have been dead for hours.

Revealing mistake: While the morgue's examiner opens Johnson's right eye with his fingers, the "corpse's" eyelid twitches repeatedly.

Sereenie

Boom - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode, Grissom pins the newspaper article about the security guard's death onto the bulletin board and the camera zooms in on it. The article is three paragraphs long, however it is the same paragraph of text repeated three times. (A DVD player with a zoom feature can confirm this.)

Paper or Plastic - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the CSI team first arrive at the crime scene and Grissom is taking photos, the first photo he takes, you can see that the victim's eyelids flutter a bit and his belly is seen contracting, a clear sign of breathing

Add time

Bodies in Motion - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Grissom and Archie are listening to the tape from Nick's kidnapping, the screen shows the audio being played. While the audio obviously changes, the lines that sketch what the sound would "look" like don't. In order for the sounds to be different, the lines would have to change too.

High and Low - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: At the start when the camera pans away from the dead body, the "D.B." swallows when he's supposed to be dead.

The Strip Strangler - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: Ribbons is talking to Grissom and Nick in the autopsy room, and the latest post autopsy female lies on the table. Grissom says, "He choked her unconscious, and brought her..." and when the shot faces her head and shoulders, watch her neck - you can see the veins in her neck pumping.

Feeling the Heat - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: The dead baby is obviously a doll.

Add time

Identity Crisis - S2-E13

Add time

Add time

Living Legend - S7-E9

Revealing mistake: Mickey Dunn is played as a young man by Rik Young with hazel eyes. His eyes are much darker than the older Mickey Dunn, played by Roger Daltrey. Roger Daltrey's eyes are notoriously as 'blue as the sky'.

Add time

Lab Rats - S7-E20

Revealing mistake: As the phone number 702-555-0192 is supposedly dialed, you can hear in the sound overlay that the last two digits dialed on the touchtone keypad were the same two digits. Then it shows a close-up of the cell phone dialing the above number.

Add time

Doctor Who (1) - S10-E22

Revealing mistake: When Nick is in the shed in the desert, sunlight is coming in through hundreds of holes in the walls and roof. Since the sun is in one spot, all beams of light should be in the general same direction. In this scene they come from at least 5 different directions, with some originating from a light source very close to the outer wall (causing beams in a radial pattern).

Getting Off - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: When Sarah and Catherine are looking over the body of the dead clown, in one scene his eye flutters and in the next he distinctly takes a breath.

Joel Amos Gordon

Gentle, Gentle - S1-E19

Monster In the Box - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: The elements of the miniature crime scene are not glued. They should not be in their respective locations, but all over the floor of the miniature.

Revealing mistake: The male corpse's eye is fluttering as his arm is examined.

Turn On, Tune In, Drop Dead - S11-E16

Add time

Take the Money and Run - S14-E2

Revealing mistake: When the shot security guard's wife demands to see him before he's taken out of the casino, the body bag he's in is unzipped, and the "dead" body very swallows, a fraction of a second before the focus is pulled back to his wife.

Add time

Jon Sandys

Dead Ringer - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Grissom notices the body and pulls over, in the close up of him you can see that the steering wheel never moves: he just moves his hand to make it look like he's pulling over.

TheHeartbreakKid15

Shock Waves - S11-E1

Revealing mistake: When the bomber is shot in front of the store, he is standing in front of a shop window. It's highly unlikely that the window wouldn't get hit and shatter. The cops fire at least a couple of dozen rounds, and magically they all hit the body, nobody misses in the heat of the moment, and no bullets exit the body from the back.

RoyT

Living Doll - S7-E24

Revealing mistake: Grissom and Brass enter the darkened apt. and Grissom spots another doll figurine on the book shelf as Brass takes notice of the dead guy on the bathroom floor. As Grissom comments on this being yet another 'miniature killer' scene, the cam flips to a shot of Dead Guy and he wiggles just slightly, even though he's supposed to be dead.

Weeping Willows - S5-E22

Revealing mistake: Willows discloses a laptop with the city's grid layout inside the welder's truck, and grabs her cell to call Grissom. Just as she presses last number, he immediately answers, without so much even a ring.
