Bones

The X in the File - S5-E11

Factual error: 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.

The Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - S5-E4

Factual error: Near the end, the gang is using Luminol to check for blood on neighbourhood signs. Luminol won't work in broad daylight, they should have used blue light filtering lens to enhance its visibility.

The Parts in the Sum of the Whole - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Booth and Bones are telling Sweets about their "real first case" together - the case where they actually met for the first time. During this episode, Booth, Bones, and Angela take some evidence to Caroline, and Booth introduces them both (most importantly Brennan) to Caroline. However, in season 1, episode 19, "The Man in the Morgue", (which would have taken place after this initial first meeting) when Brennan is accused of murder in New Orleans, Booth has Caroline fly to NOLA to be Brennan's lawyer, and he introduces the two of them. If they had already been introduced during the first case Booth and Brennan worked on together, they would not have needed to be introduced here; they would have already known one another.

The Boy with the Answer - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: It is the evidentiary hearing, all characters are put on the witness stand so you get to see what all of them are wearing. The trial starts the next day and lasts at least three days, but when they are in court at the end of the trial for the reading of the verdict for the gravedigger they all have the exact same outfits on as the day of the evidentiary hearing.

The Foot in the Foreclosure - S5-E8

Audio problem: In the beginning of the episode, Booth introduces his grandfather to Sweets and his grandfather asks, "Where did you get your M.D., in a Cracker Jack box?" You can hear Bones laugh, but her mouth remains closed.

A Night at the Bones Museum - S5-E5

Factual error: Hodgins makes a remark about the mummy wrappings being for an important person because it is a diamond weave pattern. However, the diamond weave pattern didn't come into effect until the Greco-Roman period that began at 332 B.C. It certainly wouldn't be found in an 18th dynasty mummy, no matter how important he was.

The Plain in the Prodigy - S5-E3

Factual error: When Bones and Booth go to visit Levi's parents and Sarah's brother yells at her that she is needed at home, when he gets into the buggy you see him wearing a wedding ring. Amish wear a beard to indicate marital status, not jewelry it is against the religion to wear any decoration including wedding rings.

A Night at the Bones Museum - S5-E5

Factual error: Hodgins says that natron was a naturally drying agent, which was used in the second century B.C. This is both wrong and right. While it is true that natron was used for mummification, it was used for thousands of years in Egyptian culture, not just the second century B.C.

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 Predator in the Pool - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: When Brennan and Hodgins are in the aquarium tank recovering the skull, the hose for Brennan's air starts over her left shoulder. During the first close up where Brennan is actually retrieving the skull, the breathing apparatus has been reversed, so the hose is now over her right shoulder. All other shots the hose is over the left shoulder.

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.

A Night at the Bones Museum - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: The mummy is in direct sunlight with no shadows on him when Cam first walks up to examine him. When Bones and Booth walk up to him, a few seconds later, the right side of his face is in the shadows.

The Dentist in the Ditch - S5-E13

Factual error: Booth is introduced to Padme, Jared's girlfriend from India. She explains that they met when they were in "Bangalore visiting the Karnataka Belur temple". Bangalore is the capital city of the state Karnataka. Belur, however, is one of the twin temple towns of Belur and Halebid which is in the district of Hassan, a three-hour drive from Bangalore. There is no Belur temple in Bangalore.

Audio problem: At about 3:47 into the episode, you hear the sound of a slide racking on a pump shotgun, however, when the shotgun wielding woman appears on camera, she is holding a side by side break action double barreled shotgun instead of a pump action.
