NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Semper Fortis - S12-E8

Factual error: The entire episode is contrived, as the Navy corpsman who is in legal trouble for rendering aid in an accident would not be in trouble due to the "good Samaritan law" in force in Virginia at the time.

The Artful Dodger - S12-E17

Visible crew/equipment: After Jimmy and Tony's chat, when Tony heads to the elevator Jimmy mutters that he hates being out of the loop. In the next overhead exterior shot of Tony's car, on the rear passenger window we can see the reflection of the boom operator walking and holding the boom pole/microphone. (00:21:30)

The San Dominick - S12-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Tony is with Captain O'Rourke in the parking lot, Borin approaches from behind. As O'Rourke turns to face Borin the actor's microphone has slipped out from under his shirt, between the buttons. Then when Borin says, "So will you," in the next shot facing O'Rourke and Tony, that mic is visible again. (00:38:10)

Twenty Klicks - S12-E1

Continuity mistake: In the final scene, Gibbs is working on his boat wearing safety glasses and has a pencil behind his right ear under the frame. When he learns Sergei has survived his pulls his glasses off in disbelief and the pencil is no longer behind his ear. After a cut away to the director and back to Gibbs again, the pencil has returned and remains there for the rest of the scene, including the black and white closing transition.

Yankee White - S1-E1

Gibbs: I heard you quit, Agent Todd.
Kate Todd: Happy news travels fast. Yes, I resigned. It was the right thing to do.
Gibbs: Yep. Pull that crap at NCIS, I won't give you a chance to resign.
Kate Todd: Is that a job offer?

Agent Afloat - S6-E2

Trivia: Season 6, "Agent Afloat": Maybe real aircraft carriers posing as fictional ones shouldn't let viewers see their registration numbers. When this episode aired, producers heard from several "carrier purists" complaining that CVN74 is the U.S.S. John C. Stennis, not the (non-existent) Seahawk.

Show generally

Question: I finally saw the 2-part episode from the show JAG. Does anyone know what happened to Viv Blackadder? I don't recall hearing anyone ever mention the name on NCIS.

Answer: I hadn't seen the backdoor pilots yet but while it wasn't explicitly stated, at least onscreen, I heard somewhere Vivian got either fired from NCIS due to jeopardizing a case, got resigned from the agency, or transferred to the FBI.


Answer: I dont believe it is ever mentioned, but like most pilot episodes the characters are often changed, replaced or even removed in this case.
