CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Homebodies - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When Brass and Grissom are interrogating the stoned nephew, shots of Grissom from the front show him with his head leaning against his right hand and then moving his hand down to the table, then it cuts to a shot from behind and his head is still leaning against his hand. This happens twice during the sequence.

Dead Ringer - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Nick is showing the burger guy the pictures from the ATM, he holds one up while facing the see-through window. He turns and puts it on the table and it's a completely different picture.

Fur and Loathing - S4-E5

Audio problem: When the Ranger is talking about shooting a coyote he says, "I took care of him." The shot is from behind and slightly to the right of the Ranger. When he says this line, his mouth is not moving.

Suckers - S4-E13

Factual error: Grissom sees an information card for a 17th century suit of Japanese armour (just the card, not the suit itself), and immediately deduces that the suit must actually be from the 19th century, because the Japanese military was formed in the 1860s. That military was westernised, and did not wear armour. There was nothing on the card that falsely referred to that military as being established earlier, or indicated that the suit belonged to it. There was a reference to the "military class", but that was historically correct, and meant the Samurai.

Invisible Evidence - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Catherine tells Grisson she liked the tough act (while listening to the guy testify) he said too much, she said not enough. Then he glances over at her. The guy is talking, which indicates a continuous line, even though the shot changes, but Grissom is not looking at Catherine during the shot change, instead he's got his head leaning against the glass.

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

Jackpot - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Grissom's car window is broken in the first shot where you first see the break there is hardly any glass left in the frame and yet when he is at the gas station there is an almost perfect circle of broken glass and a lot more in the frame.

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.

Feeling the Heat - S4-E4

Homebodies - S4-E3

Plot hole: Catherine is picking up the gun in the backyard. It is an unfamiliar weapon. She picks it up by using the loop around the trigger and pointing it towards herself. She then checks the clip, but never checks the chamber.

Bad Words - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Sam's matchbox, in the interview room, changes from face-forward to back-forward several times.

Suckers - S4-E13

Factual error: They talk about the type of tubes used in HIV tests. There are no special tubes specific for HIV testing alone. It is one generic tube that can be used for a multitude of tests including HIV. It did not seem as though Greg knew that she had gone for HIV testing before he ran the tests, so he should not have concluded that it was the type of tube used for HIV testing, only Catherine or Warrick should have made that connection.

Assume Nothing (1) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Grisson gets on the vibrating bed, in the close up shots he is sitting with his neck even to the top of the headboard and no pillow showing. In the wide-angle shot, he's hunched down lower with a lot of the pillow showing above his shoulders.

Invisible Evidence - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Brown talks to David, David pulls out a pelvis from a vat of acid, saying he's cleaning it. In one shot the pelvis is hanging off the lower of the tongs, but in the next shot it's clamped between the tongs. This series of shots occurs a couple times during the conversation.

Coming of Rage - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Nick counts the bullet holes in the rabbit sign used for target practice and says there are only 9 holes. It shows a flashback to the guy shooting and he shoots a tenth hole in the sign near the rabbit's right arm. This hole is not shown on the sign Nick looks at.

Jackpot - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: While Grissom is searching the car in the barn, a red laser light shows up on his left arm and dances briefly around the car for a couple seconds. This is caused by camera equipment in film.

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.

Getting Off - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Jamal is been helped out of Ed Burnell's wrecked BMW 7 Series, the wrecked car is a late 80s-early 90s E32 model. However when Burnell was driving it at the beginning of the episode, it was a newer late 90s-early 00s E38 model. Again, the production crew couldn't afford to wreck a brand new car so an older one was substituted.

Jackpot - S4-E6

Bad Words - S4-E19

Plot hole: A central plot device in this episode is that there is no six letter word made up of the letters EXVIN, so the murdered man cheats at the word game by playing a word he knew to be inadmissible - exvin, a wine connoisseur who no longer drinks. Since he is supposed to be a stone cold killer player at this word game, don't you think he would have thought of Vixen? Sara Sidle points that word out later - why wouldn't a world champion word game player have figured it out, using a safe, common word and avoiding a possible challenge?
