Too Tough to Die - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: While Sara is looking through missing person's files, Grissom comes in and starts talking to her. One shot her hair is in front of her face, the next it's behind her ear. This continues throughout the scene. (00:22:05)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Holly is first in Grissom's office and says that she feels light headed, Grissom offers her a chocolate-covered grasshopper and takes one for himself. Holly asks, "Is there a grasshopper in there?" and Grissom's right hand is near his waist. When the shot changes, Grissom merely smiles and eats the grasshopper, but his hand started off much closer to his chin without there being an opportunity for him to move it.

To Halve and to Hold - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Sara and Warrick are interviewing Meg at the end of the episode, the scene cuts between a medium shot of the dynamic duo, a close up of Meg's face and a close up of her hands which remain clasped on the table. The first time we cut to Meg there are tears in her eyes, but her face is dry. The second time we cut to Meg, there is a drying tear track on her right cheek. The third time we cut back to her, the tear track is gone, but there is a tear halfway down her left cheek. This continues throughout the scene

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.
