New this month Suggested correction: Morgan doesn't ask what song on that album would speak to an insomniac, he asks what Metallica song in general would. He says, and I quote, "Okay, so I'm an insomniac who listens to Metallica to get to sleep. What song could possibly speak to me?" His query is in regards to the band's discography as a whole; neither he nor Reid mention a specific album, so the fact that "Some Kind of Monster" is the CD that they find is, ultimately, irrelevant.

The team was looking for what CD Slessman listened to the most to figure out what his password could be. They had no luck going through all his metal collection. The clue was suppose to be Slessman listened to "Some Kind of Monster" CD the most to help him sleep, which is why it wasn't in the case.

The Fox - S1-E7

New this month Character mistake: When interrogating the Uncle, the agents say that Emily is left handed (reinforced by when they throw a ball to the uncle and he catches it with his right hand).

The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Other mistake: At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13.'.

The Caller - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, a St Louis couple has reported their son missing. At the FBI briefing, the agents are told that the boy's mother tucked him in at 10:00pm. A few minutes later, we hear the radio call over footage of police at the home, and the dispatcher says "Last seen at 2100." That's 9:00pm, not 10:00pm.

A Real Rain - S1-E17

Character mistake: In the initial meeting at FBI headquarters, the agents mention the Zodiac killer. Gideon says about him "Yeah, and he killed for 30 years without being caught." In actuality, the Zodiac's known victims were killed between 1966 and 1970. In letters to the public, Zodiac claimed responsibility for several other murders (most of which were solved without being attributed to Zodiac), but no later than 1974. Gideon's statement was off by at least 22 years.
