NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

The Truth Is Out There - S1-E17

Character mistake: Gibbs and Ducky are in Autopsy, with Ducky describing lower-leg injuries of a deceased Petty Officer. The two bones in the lower leg are the tibia and the fibula; however, Ducky, a doctor with decades of experience, referred to the injuries as fractures of the "tibia" and "fibia." (00:13:05)

Freedom - S8-E13

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Ziva are first in the pool hall, Tony has 2 balls (1 red, 1 green) in his hand. In one shot they are in his hand next to each other in a horizontal line. Camera changes and now they are next to each other vertically. (00:07:30)

Freedom - S8-E13

Other mistake: McGee says that Jancy got into her cab at 12:37am and arrived at her destination at 12:55. That's 18 minutes for the taxi to drive "over 20 miles away" Hardly likely given traffic. (00:29:00)

Suggested correction: You missed the point of what he said. The cab ride ends at Gilroy's address, which is 20 miles from Travis Wooten's home. But the ride didn't start at Wooten's home, it started at Feeney's Billiard Club. They don't make any mention how many miles the ride was.

Shalom - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Gibbs and Ziva are in the "safehouse" Ziva set up for Ari, a crew member and his boom microphone are seen on the left of the screen, right before Gibbs climbs the ladder to remove the hidden camera spying on them. (00:30:10)

Yankee White - S1-E1

Factual error: Air Force One landed in Wichita, Kansas. The local coroner claimed Jurisdiction for Wichita County. The city of Wichita, Kansas is in Sedgwick County, in southern Kansas. Wichita County, Kansas is in western Kansas, about 250 miles from the city of Wichita. (00:05:40)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When he hands Tony the autopsy report, Ducky has hair falling over his forehead, then combed back, then over his forehead again repeatedly from shot to shot. (00:07:15)

Untouchable - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: The camera pans across a line of several anime plushies. When the shot then goes wide, several of the plushies have either been re-arranged or removed completely, including a pink plush and the Kyogre plush. It also seems as though there are two Miroku plushies in the scene as well, one near the middle and one off to the side of the left pillow. (00:04:10)

Stakeout - S5-E12

Other mistake: Season 5, Episode 12, "Stakeout": The picture on McGee's camera phone is just wrong. It shows not just the man in front of him, but it also shows a hand, holding a camera phone - McGee's camera phone. In other words, the phone is showing a picture of itself and the man, instead of just the man. (00:40:25)

Hiatus: Part 1 - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When DiNozzo is watching the ship through the binoculars at the beginning, the film is run in reverse. The sailor smoking on the deck is the giveaway, as the smoke he's blowing is going into his mouth. (00:00:15)

Faith - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: When Tony is leaving to meet Gibbs at the residence of their victim's family, he has his backpack slung over his shoulder. When the shot cuts to McGee and back, the backpack has disappeared. (00:07:20)
