NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Iceman - S4-E18

Character mistake: In the scene, where Jeanne tells Tony that he never said he loves her, besides after sexual activities. This is not true. In episode 15 "Friends and lovers" Tony ends a phone call saying "I love you."

Suggested correction: She is referring to the incident at the top of the climbing wall when he didn't tell her he loved her.

Suggested correction: We can see him, on camera, constantly changing his grip because it's heavy and he's trying to hold it.

Yes he changes his grip, but, in some instant cuts, such as the ones shown above, his grip changes instantly.

Recoil - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When Abby is first discussing the victim's blood types, there is a shot from behind her that shows a black band wrapped around her upper left thigh about an inch below the hem of her skirt. The shot changes to a front view and the black band is gone.

Suggested correction: That's because it's not a band round her thigh, but part of her outfit that only hangs at the back. Pay close attention and you can see the clip on her right leg.

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.

Suggested correction: That is Leyla's left hand we see, not a random hand.

Suggested correction: No. We see in the closeup Ziva David writing her name, and the shot cuts away just as she starts to write the last "d" in David (timecode 00:28:00).

Spider and the Fly - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Right at the end, the dying Poloma reaches up and touches her brother's right cheek. Her bloody fingers leave a trail behind. This disappears in the next shot when Alejandro turns his head to look at Gibbs.

Suggested correction: The smear is still present but due to the lighting it's difficult to see. You can see it just as he starts to turn his head to Gibbs.

Kill Chain - S11-E12

Character mistake: Ellie Bishop introduces herself to Delilah as Emily Bishop in the elevator scene. Her name's Eleanor in the series, but the actress' real name is Emily. She used her real first name in the scene.

Suggested correction: Ellie correctly says, "I'm Ellie Bishop," when she introduces herself to Delilah. I slowed the speed down to 0.5x to confirm.

Cloak - S6-E8

Plot hole: Season 6, episode 8 ("Cloak"). When Ziva and Tony take the elevator two floors down this takes a full minute. When in a hurry for a call it speeds down, yet for this conversation it (conveniently) took a minute.

Suggested correction: That's because whenever they get a call, or use the lift we see them get in, then arrive where they are going in the next shot. Whenever we see inside the lift it is predominately when Gibbs stops the lift to have a private chat with someone.

Suggested correction: Please rewatch this scene. It's not a boom mic, it's the vehicle's antenna topper.
