114 mistakes

Red Light - S12-E22

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the team and their SUVs are spike stripped and then hit by a semi. When the team is shown in the SUVs and when the SUVs are shown hitting the sticks, the SUVs are eleventh generation Suburbans, but when the semi is shown hitting them, they're ninth generation, at least nine years older.

Profiling 202 - S12-E9

Character mistake: Rossi reacts upset to the phone call before the killer starts singing happy birthday.

Anonymous - S10-E12

Other mistake: When Hotch, Morgan and JJ review the footage from the first murder, they are able to zoom extremely close on the victim's hand. Why don't they do the same with the car license plate as the killer leaves?

Taboo - S12-E3

Factual error: Agents are staking out a suspect in Boynton Beach, Florida. A truck approaches and they can see the license plate on the front of it. There are no front license plates in Florida. Only rear.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: They keep showing the aerial view of one type of jet (such as Gulfstream 100 with its rectangular windows), but the inside shots are always in a "heavy" Gulfstream (such as Gulfstream IV or Gulfstream V, which have round windows). Also, the tail numbers (the N-numbers written on the engine) are always different in the aerial views. Some end with GV, some with SP etc.

Derailed - S1-E9

Character mistake: Close to the end of the episode, Dr. Reid says to the psychotic guy that was holding hostages, "M-theory cannot be proved." It should be "proven, " not "proved." Dr. Reid is supposed to be a genius, so he should be the last one to make such a mistake.

Won't Get Fooled Again - S1-E3

Other mistake: Just after they were finished explaining that you can not tilt the mystery package because it would instantly blow up, they show the little girl at her doorstep holding the package completely tilted. Just when you think that means that this package now doesn't fall into the "explosive" category, they then show the mom freaking out, and later police making the girl hold the package in a completely different (non-tilted) position.

Brothers in Arms - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: When Reid is talking there's a big crack at the top of the window that might be a problem since they're supposed to be flying. Then a few seconds later they cut back to him and it's filled with putty.

God Complex - S8-E4

Character mistake: Spencer says that leg transplants are medically impossible, however, there was at least one documented successful double transplant performed a year before the season aired.

Annabel Keeley

Jones - S2-E18

Factual error: Reid says that it's been speculated that Mary Jane Kelly was murdered in a flat rented by the killer - this is completely incorrect. She was murdered in her rooms, where she'd been living since early 1888.

Annabel Keeley

No Way Out - S2-E13

Factual error: Gideon says that Frank is the most prolific serial killer ever, with 177 victims. This is incorrect - Pedro Lopez murdered 350+ young girls and Luis Garavito murdered 300+ plus girls.

Annabel Keeley

Beyond Borders - S10-E19

Factual error: Rossi recognizes a "typical Dutch gesture" The suspect hits his forehead with his hand and then moves it towards another person, saying that the person is "crazy" This gesture is German. In the Netherlands we use a different gesture. We point to our forehead with our index finger and then point at the person we think is crazy, with that same finger.

Rob Hasenbos

Tribute - S11-E19

Continuity mistake: After Emily shoots the unsub in the head and he falls on the bed, the gun falls beside him. A second later they show her walking over to his body to remove the gun from his hand.

Tribute - S11-E19

Other mistake: A mugshot of a suspect is showing with some personal information. Name, license number, address, etc. The field for "Home address" shows a valid address but "Work Address" shows "Male." The correct field title should be "Sex."

Tribute - S11-E19

Audio problem: Garcia is typing on a flat, foldable rubber keyboard but the keys' sound is loud like from a plastic keyboard. The rubber keyboard shouldn't make noise.

Hostage - S11-E14

Factual error: Violet is seen wearing Hood style flip-flops where there is a denim like covering just beyond the sandal straps, but this scene takes place in 2001, 12 years before those shoes were available.

Honor Among Thieves - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Garcia accesses the bank's page online Prentiss gives her the account number login, 1552 9384 6729, and we see Garcia typing it correctly on the screen with the password, but when it cuts to the account's page showing deposit and balance, we see in the balance box the account number's last four digits are 7629, not 6729.

Super Grover

Internal Affairs - S11-E9

Character mistake: When Derek and Rossi are in the morgue, you can see the "corpse" swallowing just before the scene changes.

Won't Get Fooled Again - S1-E3

Audio problem: The video game Penelope is playing is supposed to be Tetris, but the sound effects are from the Atari 2600 version of Pac-Man. You can hear Pac-Man die four times during the scene.

Protection - S10-E22

Continuity mistake: In the final stand off, Daniel fires 15 rounds through the door/wall at the team. We've already been told his gun only holds 14 bullets. Not to mention without reloading he fires a few more bullets shortly afterwards.
