Bones

The Dwarf in the Dirt - S5-E7

Character mistake: Episode 5.07, "Dwarf in the Dirt" - Over lunch with Doctor/Chef Gordon Wyatt, Angela says he'd have to dislocate his jaw like "an articulated python" in order to bite into his sandwich. The snake is actually called a reticulated python.

The Predator in the Pool - S5-E18

Character mistake: When Bones and Dr Hodgins, who is proclaimed as a seasoned diver in a previous episode, are in the tank, Bones gives an instruction and Hodgins replies with a thumbs up. Since Bones is diving as well, they both would know from certification (without which neither would be allowed to dive in the facility) classes that a thumbs up is the hand signal for "I'm ascending", not OK or any form of acknowledgement. They either are not certified divers or they should have immediately surfaced.

The Rocker in the Rinse Cycle - S5-E19

Character mistake: When Booth mentions the 2007 Led Zeppelin concert in London, he comments that they toured that year. That Zeppelin concert was not part of a tour, but just a one-off reunion to honor the memory of late Atlantic Records executive Ahmet Ertegun.

Mistakes

The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.

Trivia

At around 5 mins 11 seconds into the episode, Vincent Nigel-Murrey and Dr. Saroyan are discussing the bones on the forensic platform. In the background of a shot of Vincent, the x-ray on the screen is of Homer Simpson's head in the middle of the screen, instead of a real human skull.
