Criminal Minds

Zugzwang - S8-E12

Character mistake: When Reid realizes who the unsub is, he asks Hotch if he was introduced as "Doctor" or "Agent". As explained in the pilot (and in every episode since), the team has always introduced Reid as "Doctor", to make sure that the people they meet treat him with respect and don't just see him as a kid.

Suggested correction: I think the reason Reid asks for a clarification is because the unsub knew his name and title when he hadn't been formally introduced because this case was under special circumstances so the team wasn't being formal.

It has nothing to do with being formal. The mistake is saying the team never introduces Reid as "Agent Reid", so there's no reason to for Reid to even ask this question.

Paradise - S4-E4

Trivia: Rick Dunkle, a Criminal Minds producer, writer, and script coordinator, has a cameo as Jonathan, the dead driver in the car that was hit by the tractor trailer, at the start of the episode. *Spoiler* Dunkie, who is a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, thought it would be cool to be killed by 'Wesley Crusher' who's played by Wil Wheaton, and who guest stars in this episode.

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.
