Riding the Lightning - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Previous episodes of the series have established that the series takes place in present day, well into the 2000's. The models of cell phones and cars used, references to the 9/11 attacks, etc. In this episode, both Jacob and Sarah Jean are shown to be executed in the electric chair. The problem is; Florida has not used the electric chair for executions since July 8, 1999. Ever since, the state has used lethal injection for capital punishment.

Correction: Lethal injection is the primary method of execution in Florida, but inmates on Death Row do still have the option of choosing electrocution. In real life, none have since 1999, but it is still a legal and possible method in the state of Florida. No mistake here.

Visible crew/equipment: After the BAU capture "grandfather," when Hotchner has Reid on his cell's speaker, just as Reid says, "He spent 22 months in prison...," we can see the shadow of the boom pole and mic on the ground behind Hotch. (00:33:50)

Show generally

Question: The crew takes a private jet to most locations but always have the same black S.U.V.s. How do the vehicles get there as fast as the crew?

RGW

Chosen answer: Black SUVs are common police, military and dignitary vehicles around the world. It is not too much to assume they could be rented or owned by the police forces in the areas.
