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'.

Visible crew/equipment: When Prentiss, Morgan, Rossi, and Caulfield go see Mary Wilkinson, in the wide shot just as Caulfield says, "Hello, Mary," the second camera filming from another angle is visible at the right side of the screen. Additionally, later when Chrissy confronts Charlie she's wearing one earring in her right ear, but after she shoots him that one earring is in her left ear.

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.

Proof - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cy sneaks into the house with the key under the mat, in the bedroom he picks up the triple gold frame with two photos of Matt with Lyla and one photo of young Lyla in the blue dress in the center frame, then he holds it to his face and places it back on the right side of the dresser. However, after Cy hears Lyla coming into the house, when she sees the underwear on the bedroom floor the frame on the right side of the dresser is now a double wood frame with only one of the same photos seen earlier.

All That Remains - S8-E14

Revealing mistake: When Agent Hotchner receives a text from JJ while interviewing the suspect, it is actually a screenshot. You can see Camera Roll in the upper left hand corner, "2 of 2" where JJ's name should be, and the Share/Play/Delete banner at the bottom. It is covered by Agent Hotchner quickly tapping on the screen to clear the banners.

Unfinished Business - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene (after the credits), Elle's hair is in bangs. In the scene where they discuss the killer using zip ties instead of ropes her bangs have suddenly grown in.

00:05:05 - 00:15:45

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.

Damaged - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: At the start of this episode Rossi tells Garcia about the case he's obsessed with, "It's the 20th anniversary of this crime. Twenty years tomorrow, three children woke up and found their parents murdered." However, during S3xE11 "Birthright," while working on their current Wilkinson case, Rossi shows Caulfield (the sheriff of the original Wilkinson case from 1980) the victim's charm bracelet he carries, then tells him about the Indianapolis case he's never forgotten, and how every year since then he's called the victims' children. And later, after Caulfield tells Rossi it's been 27 years since his own unsolved case, he asks Rossi how long it's been for him and Rossi says, "21," then Caulfield cautions, "Don't let it get to 22."

Profiler, Profiled - S2-E12

Character mistake: Derek Morgan says that he discovered the body of a dead boy in 1991 when he was 15 years old. Later on, you see Garcia searching the computer for personal info on Derek Morgan. According to the computer; Derek Morgan was born in 1973 which would make him 18 years old in 1991, not 15.

Somebody's Watching - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Reid and Lila are in the pool, kissing, he explains how it is wrong that they are out in the open, and in a pool.

Other mistake: When Prentiss and Morgan are trying to figure out how the victims were controlled, Prentiss phones Garcia to find a drug that would temporarily paralyze or subdue. Then just as we hear Garcia answering the call, there's a close-up of Garcia's computer screen and we see the picture of five suicide notes, and at this point there have been six victims. Then later, after the seventh victim is found, when Morgan holds the latest suicide note in the close-up, we can see it's the same note that's already been shown.

A Thousand Suns - S10-E3

Continuity mistake: The original plane is a 747, (four engines on the wings, two aisles). The plane that Reid gets the plans for is a 727 tri-jet (three engines on the tail and one aisle, not wide body). The plane in the walk through by Reid is a wide body of some sort, but not a 747 (two aisles with three seats in the middle).

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.

Other mistake: At the start, the soon-to-be victim gets off the A train at Spring Street (subway heads south, then Bklyn/Queens) and stands on the west-side platform, facing the southern subway exit, then the unsub comes up from behind him, shoots him and he falls toward the same way that the unsub walks - the southern exit. However, when Hotchner plays the NYPD's surveillance footage, the victim is facing the northern subway exit when the unsub comes up from behind him, shoots, and he falls toward the same way that the unsub walks - this time the northern subway exit. Interestingly, neither are flipped shots since we can see "Spring St" correctly. Later, when Prentiss reviews footage it's as it was shown originally.

Continuity mistake: The BAU has its 'own' airplane in use at the FBI. However the type of plane used varies between episodes and even within an episode (and even for at least one episode within one shot; see previous post). Although it would be likely for the BAU to have one dedicated airplane at least within one episode, it could be they time-share and so different planes are used. No matter what plane they are using, one thing never changes and that's the interior of the planes. So even when a different type of plane is used (e.g. Gulf Stream V vs. 100), the interior remains the same.

Character mistake: In this episode the unsub is copying the murders of Jack the Ripper (with men as victims). The Unsub also taunts the police and BAU with letters, even using the Dear Boss salutation. The BAU draw upon the Dear Boss letters from the original Ripper case as part of their profiling - not only of the unsub but also the Ripper. Handwriting comparisons has shown that the author of the Dear Boss letters was most likely a journalist and not the Ripper. Whilst the unsub may have been ignorant of the forgery status of the dear boss letters, you would expect the BAU to be wiser.

Continuity mistake: When the team visit the home of Marcie Mitchell, the older boy takes the baby to another room. The baby is crying, then as they are in shot walking through the door the baby is looking around and smiling, and as the door shuts we hear crying again.

A Real Rain - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Gideon puts on a glove to examine the flint blade from the fourth victim's head, the glove snaps and breaks. In the next shot, more close up, Gideon's glove is not broken.

A Higher Power - S3-E15

Character mistake: When Emily Prentiss makes note of the 110 V outlet having no GFI, she calls it 'Ground Fault Insulation', when in actual fact, GFI stands for 'Ground Fault Interrupter'.

00:11:00 - 00:12:00

The Big Wheel - S4-E22

Other mistake: When Morgan calls Garcia to have her search for Vincent, Prentiss jumps in saying he is a mentor. However Morgan had just learned this and didn't mention it on the call.

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.

00:06:25

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?

00:21:45

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.

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.

00:05:00 - 00:06:00

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.

No Way Out - S2-E13

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.

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.

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.

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.

00:12:20

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.

House on Fire - S4-E19

Audio problem: When Garcia is talking about the cross-examination she's done and how she should be praised for how quickly she'd done it, she crosses the room away from the computers (and the webcam she's shown through) to a bulletin board. While she's walking away, her voice gets fainter, and then becomes louder again when she returns, as though she were getting further and then closer again to a microphone. However, she is wearing a headset with a microphone - the volume wouldn't have changed.

00:13:15

Run - S7-E24

Continuity mistake: The clock on the bomb's secondary timer doesn't match with reality while Prentiss is trying to defuse it - going from 15 seconds to 10 too slowly, then skipping the final few seconds so it can end on 1 second remaining.

Scared to Death - S3-E3

Other mistake: When the character is buried alive the psychiatrist pours bags of dirt on the head of the victim. First, there is a pile of bags that shows only 8-10 bags of dirt, which is not enough to fill the hole. Secondly, the victim was conscious and standing up with no apparent broken bones, which means she could have just stood on the dirt as it was (very slowly) poured in. Additionally, she was buried completely during the entire time the murderer was evading police, having a conversation with Hotchner, and jumping to his death. Then the BAU talked about their suspicions she was still there and had to make it all the way to the basement. She would not have had a "faint pulse" after all of that time.

Nelson's Sparrow - S10-E13

Factual error: The flashback shown is from 1978, when Virginia license plates had six characters, however the license plate shown on the car is the current version with seven characters.

Run - S7-E24

Factual error: While JJ and Will might have exchanged "commitment vows" with a willing officiant, they could not have actually married in the time frame given for multiple reasons. The bank robbery occurred on a Saturday and the proposal was that evening at the hospital, with a stated intention to go down to the court Monday to wed. Instead, Rossi and Will set it up for the next evening, which was Sunday. The following is taken from Washington, D.C.'s marriage information site: 1) the court offices that issue licenses are only open M-F; 2) there is a mandated three day waiting period between obtaining the license and performing the ceremony; 3) there is a ten advance notice required to arrange a civil ceremony through the court office. Therefore, the earliest they could be legally wed would be on Thursday with a license and a private ceremony, while a civil ceremony would actually have taken an additional week. As for JJ's "lets get married tonight", I can't see any hospital chaplain obliging.

Zoe's Reprise - S4-E15

Visible crew/equipment: After Prentiss and Morgan catch Eric and his girlfriend in the park it cuts to Prentiss and the girlfriend in the interrogation room, and as the camera tracks backward from the door's window we can see a nice reflection of the moving camera and also a crew member standing behind Hotchner.

Zoe's Reprise - S4-E15

Final Shot - S9-E3

Reflection of Desire - S6-E8

Exit Wounds - S5-E21

Factual error: The BAU is called in to assist the Sheriff's Dept. in Franklin, Alaska (a made-up town, although there is a ghost town by that name). By statute, Alaska has never had any Sheriffs. Functions filled by sheriffs elsewhere fall mostly under the auspices of the Alaska State Troopers. Other law enforcement is by community or (rarely) borough which is what Alaska has instead of counties.

Magnum Opus - S8-E13

Continuity mistake: In the scene where you first watch the killer drain a victim's blood, the upper part of the glass jar is coated with blood, but when he puts it in the fridge this part of the jar is clear. On the other hand some of the jars in the fridge are still fully coated with blood, which shouldn't be as the blood had the time to gather at the bottom.

00:07:15

The Longest Night - S6-E1

Other mistake: JJ calls Hotch unsure if she can make direct contact with the unsub, fearing that she will make a mistake. Hotch tells her she will do fine and tells her that they are gathering background information about Flynn, who is the unsub. At this point the team have not yet figured out the identity of the unsub and Hotch should not know his name.

00:27:35

Tribute - S11-E19

Other mistake: There is a mugshot of a 35 year old suspect on Garcia's computer. According to what she is saying, the suspect's mother died 10 years ago. A photo shows her with the suspect and he looks exactly the same age as he does now.

The Last Word - S2-E9

Other mistake: While Hotchner and Reid are talking about Hollow Man and the Mill Creek Killer, Reid's going through the newspapers and when he figures out that the two killers have been talking to each other via the classifieds, there are two closeups of an ad's text. After Hotchner suggests using their relationship against them, Hotch says that Reid's fake ad will imitate Hollow Man's language patterns to send a message to the Mill Creek Killer. Then we hear Reid reading the fake ad they just placed in the classifieds, but the problem is it's the same ad that was shown in the closeups earlier, plus an additional line at the end - "here's my gift to you."
