CSI: NY

The Fall - S1-E17

Plot hole: The CSIs catch a murder suspect putting down a drink can when reviewing security footage of a robbery, and immediately realise they didn't see it at the scene so assume one of the first cops on the scene must have removed it. Thing is though, the murderers shot out the security camera before the actual shooting occurred, meaning there was loads of time off-camera for the killers to take the can with them, but the CSIs never even consider this - they jump to the conclusion a cop took it even though there's no actual evidence for that.

Not What It Looks Like - S3-E2

Factual error: Season 3, episode 49 (Not What It Looks Like). Breaking glass with sound is possible, but would not work as depicted in the episode. First, in order to break the glass, you have to force the glass to vibrate at its natural frequency - that is, the frequency at which it would vibrate if it were tapped. Each piece of glass has its own natural frequency, depending on a range of factors including size, chemical makeup, shape, hardness, and manufacturing methods. No single frequency would shatter all the glass in the store at the same time. Finally, in order to break the glass the piece has to be closed-ended. You can't shatter a plate of glass with sound (nowhere for the sound waves to resonate). Please see http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/feb98/887203231.Ph.r.html

Murder Sings The Blues - S3-E7

Factual error: Several police and crime lab personnel are in the train car looking at the dead girl and discussing the possibility that this death could be the result of a bio-hazard or chemical hazard. Later in the episode, ebola and anthrax were discussed. These are level 3/4 hazards which require Hazmat suits and oxygen supplies. At the very least, there should have been very serious access control to the scene. None of them are wearing any type of protective gear except rubber gloves, and there is nothing more than standard crime scene access control. Contrast this with a scene later in the same episode where 2 characters in the lab are wearing respirators when dealing with the dust and other stuff from vacuum cleaning system. If the CSI team or the police really suspected that there was a biohazard or dangerous chemical agent present at the crime scene, then their behaviour was quite cavalier under the circumstances.

And Here's To You, Mrs. Azrael - S3-E9

Factual error: They state that the heart monitor on "Nicole" never showed any movement at all as she was being smothered, because the killer swapped it out and put it on herself. When Mrs. Rollins was smothering her daughter thinking it was Nicole, her heart rate would have raced and her blood pressure would have gone up a little as she strained to hold the bag over her face. The monitor would have picked that up.

Summer In The City - S2-E1

Factual error: The plot is about a mosquito who stung the murderer.

All mosquitoes used in the episode are male.

Hostage - S4-E21

Factual error: When Mac is held hostage until he can prove that the bank robber did not shoot the manager, he asks for a portable CT machine to be delivered. CT stands for computed tomography which is a machine that takes slice pictures of the body and puts them together to form a whole image. This is why a CT machine has a tube like quality to it, so it can take slice-like pictures around the body. When it arrives the machine is not a CT at all, but an ultrasound. This is made obvious when Mac uses the transducer probe (wand-like attachment) to scan the body. Anyone who has had any of these procedures done, or has seen them in TV shows, or knows how to search images on the internet can see the difference between these two very different machines.

Factual error: when Mac Taylor's ID card from the Marine Corps is being shown, there are two unintentional mistakes and one probably intentional.

The picture on the ID however, has two unintentional mistakes. First, Marines are never photographed in their dress blues for official purposes; Mac would have been in cammies or service dress charlies for the photograph. Second, Mac is revealed in several episodes to have been an officer, yet he is shown wearing the dress blues of an enlisted man.

Character mistake: In the scene in which Stella, Adam, and Hawkes are trying to get clues from the $1 bill left by Shane Casey at the bar, Stella notes that the Latin phrase "E Pluribus Unum" has had its word order changed and now reads "E Unum Pluribus". From this, she deduces that the meaning has changed from 'from many, one" to "from one, many'. However, Latin is a highly inflected language, in which the meaning of a word changes not from its position in a sentence, but from the ending that is attached to the word. Therefore, both 'e pluribus unum' and 'e unum pluribus' mean exactly the same thing.

Computer issue: Not only can she print the list and bypass a print option popup window with a single keystroke (implausible), but there are no icons/links on the page for software to do anything with that list. As well, the window scrollbar shows that there are nearly two pages of content on that screen, yet it appears to be a single complete page for the camera. Technical issue: The list contains 27 customer names - but one is repeated (Ryan Jackson).Later in the episode, they cross-reference that customer list (then printed on an opaque board in Mac's office, with that same duplicated name), against a company's employee list on Lindsey's pad computer. She was "able to notice one last name in common," yet there are three last names on the employee list also on the customer list, and one of those last names has two people listed - so that's four people who could have connections, yet only one was checked.

Unfriendly Chat - S7-E2

Factual error: In the shot where Mac discovers Adam's details on the killer's desk, under Adam's name is what is supposed to be Adam's computer IP address. Although the first two octets 172.16 are a plausible address, within a private address range, the third octet is a little too high at 450 (the largest number in an octet is 255) and the fourth octet at over 1000, well.

To What End? - S7-E11

Factual error: During their investigation, the CSIs learn that their murder suspect is in the witness protection program, under FBI protection. WITSEC falls under the jurisdiction of the United States Marshals Service, not the FBI. And considering how many protected witnesses the Marshals Service relocates each year, it's doubtful they would be shorthanded enough to need help from another agency to locate a missing witness.

Heart of Glass - S3-E16

Character mistake: As Peyton is examining the body and reporting her findings to Danny at the beginning of the episode, Mac picks up a credit card he deducts was used to open the door, but he isn't wearing gloves; this would compromise the evidence even if by holding it by the edges he preserved the prints.

Yahrzeit - S5-E22

Factual error: The episode has a character in it called Klaus Braun ("Braun" being the German word for "brown"). However, all of the characters pronounce his surname wrong, saying the "au" like the "or" in "bored", not the proper German pronunciation, which would in fact, be the same as the English meaning, "Brown". Other German character's names were pronounced correctly, and surely Klaus/Abraham would object to having his name pronounced incorrectly.

Not What It Looks Like - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: After Danny breaks the glass in the lab allegedly using sound waves, you can see in the shot immediately after the glass breaks, a thin green laser beam from roughly further top left to near bottom right. It's assumed this is what actually broke the glass.
