NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Sandblast - S4-E7

Factual error: Lieutenant Colonel Mann explains to the NCIS team that a "99 Toyota" is the only unaccounted for vehicle from the golf course bombing. The vehicle is a Toyota but is obviously a mid-80's Corolla, with the last production year being 1987, making it over a decade older than Mann claims. Additionally, she would not have know the year of the vehicle prior to the team running the plate, nor would she have pointlessly assumed its year. (00:32:06)

Once a Hero - S4-E8

Other mistake: Ducky states that the Bronze Star was for Valor. However, the bronze V that signifies the star was for Valor is not present. There is no way Ducky could know it was for Valor. (00:05:20)

Once a Hero - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: When Ducky and Gibbs are in the morgue examining the body of the girl found in the hotel, the camera cuts for a few seconds to the girl lying on the slab. During that shot, you can see her neck moving to her pulse (just after Ducky says, "There's some bruising on the sternum"). (00:19:10)

Other mistake: When Abby is talking to the microscope guy during the line "you understand without having to go find a dictionary" there is a half second flash of another shot with DiNozzo walking off camera in a street setting. Maybe just a encoding error on Netflix but it persisted after reloading. (00:23:45)

Twisted Sister - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Tim and sister Sarah are working on the past evening's timeline, Sarah's clothes lying on the counter change position between the wide shots and the close-ups. Also the plastic her shoes are sitting on in the wide shots disappears in the close-up when she removes them and when she picks up the baggie of money. The screen shot of the locations in the time line also change locations. The 9:30 and 10:00 individual locations show up in the Georgetown University area but when they zoom out to show all three locations, the two time location now show the George Washington University, Foggy Bottom area of D. C., and it shows Tim's residence as being in Arlington National Cemetery. (00:06:35 - 00:07:50)

When the 4x4 drives off, the second mannequin has moved on its own from the double yellow line to the side with the other 2 upright male mannequins. (00:00:45)

Driven - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: At the start, Otto hits the mannequin straight forward. Camera changes and now the mannequin is to the side of the 4x4. After the mannequin is hit, the woman looks out of her side window to look at it. However when we see the 4x4 drive off the mannequin is now on the opposite side. (00:00:50)
