Miami Vice

The Prodigal Son (1 & 2) - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: After Crockett and Tubbs' confrontation with the New York police at the end of part 1, as the police car drives away, in the background a blue car drives by and a man and woman can be seen in the car looking and pointing at the filming.

The Afternoon Plane - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Many times during the episode, Det. Tubbs and the other characters mention that Tubbs killed Calderone. This is not accurate. In the episode "Caulderone's Return pt. 2," it is actually Crockett that kills Calderone and not Tubbs.

Jason Bravener

Brother's Keeper (1 & 2) - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Crockett and Tubbs first meet at the deal, after the cops bust the deal too early, Tubbs steals Crockett's boat to get away. As he's driving the boat away, you see a second person kneeling down in the back of the boat, most likely a crew member. Very obvious.

Red Tape - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: When Bobby Diaz gets shot by Glenn McIntyre at the end of the episode, it causes him to fire his Beretta at the jetty he's standing on. Despite being at very close range, the deck remains unaffected by the gun shooting it. He also lacks any gunshot wounds.

Nobody Lives Forever - S1-E20

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the show where three guys take a ride in a convertible and one of them spits at a driver in a truck, pay close attention: the cameraman is visible in the reflection of the convertible, along with two crew members.

Jeffy

Cool Runnin' - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: According to the ballistics report, the Jamaican hitters use "Interarms" (instead of Interdynamic) KG-99 submachine guns. However, the lead thug actually uses a Smith & Wesson M76, and his cohorts Jimmy & Winston use Star Z70s.

TheHeartbreakKid15

Christine von Marburg: All I know about you is that you drive a Testarossa and you live on a boat.
