NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Show generally

Other mistake: It would appear that (as late as early-Season 5), almost all screen shots of computer forensics include the same hard drive properties screen - it seems to be the same hard drive each time - 111GB, with 93GB used and a 129kb private container on it. I have not noticed whether they are all named drive G:, but several have been. The only thing that changes is the 'header' section, which is manipulated each episode to show something specific (but not real) for the TV audience to read.

Show generally

Factual error: Throughout the show, skyscrapers are consistently shown. The height of buildings in Washington DC is restricted by the Height of Buildings Act of 1910, and there are no buildings taller than 13 stories.
