NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Short Fuse - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When the bomb timer is discovered, Dempsey is stood next to the bomb as seen on Monitor 1 of the control room. The camera pans across, past monitor 2 and onto Monitor 3 which is still the same room but a different angle. On Monitor 3, Dempsey is now around 3-4ft away from the bomb. (00:14:00)

Short Fuse - S8-E3

Audio problem: When we first listen to the 911 call, the woman says, "there's no rush" however the audio playback bar is at a point on the screen that shows no spikes in the pitch. (00:06:40)

Worst Nightmare - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: The way Abby holds out the bells for the intern to wear changes depending on the shot. In one shot she has the string over all 4 fingers and in another only over 1. (00:09:20)

Canary - S10-E14

Visible crew/equipment: While at Gitmo, Sergeant Spooner is attacked by a detainee, and when Tony joins in the tussle the gun is fired. It then cuts to the tented Global Courier van, and the pink tape mark is visible on the ground behind the van. (00:35:50)

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)


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)

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)

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)
