Hawaii Five-O

The Clock Struck Twelve - S5-E12

Character mistake: After distracting the guards, Danno tosses a grappling hook onto a ledge and climbs the side of the building. He then goes about his business, carelessly leaving the hook and rope dangling from the ledge for all to see. For a seasoned 5-0 team member, that's pretty sloppy covert operations.

Didn't We Meet at a Murder? - S4-E22

Character mistake: When Chin Ho reads Wellman's license plate number to the police dispatcher and repeats it to confirm, he recites a different number the second time.

Rest In Peace, Somebody - S4-E10

Character mistake: Cameron's attempt to assassinate the governor fails because McGarrett has everyone wear bullet-proof vests. It's been established that Cameron is brilliant, a top-of-his-class ex-cop and a crack shot. And he's been sending death threats, so he knows they'll expect him. Yet he fires at the governor's back and is shocked that the man doesn't die. Anyone with his expertise would have anticipated the vests, and aimed for the man's head.

The Face of the Dragon - S1-E17

Character mistake: Near the end of the episode, McGarrett tells Dr. Kuh "The imposter Lewis Shen murdered your uncle." The uncle McGarrett is referring to was, earlier in the episode, referred to as Dr. Kuh's grandfather.

King of the Hill - S1-E15

Character mistake: While trying to figure out how to evacuate the other patients in order to get to Danny, McGarrett mentions a patient's daughter in room 309, but it's mentioned in other scenes that the man and his daughter are in room 306.

'V' For Vashon: The Father (2) - S5-E10

Character mistake: Hayward tells Vashon that McGarrett's office is on the third floor of the Iolani Palace. Previous episodes have placed the office on the second floor, or have shown the palace to have only two floors.

'V' For Vashon: The Patriarch (3) - S5-E11

Character mistake: When Ben talks to the old guy about Spider Brown, Ben says, "Somebody that got rich the past week." The time between the shooting and trial was probably months, not just one week. Spider would have been flashing money right after the hit, and then disappeared.

The Finishing Touch - S6-E11

Character mistake: McGarrett mispronounces his old friend Cargill's name in the bank vault scene, giving it a soft G and calling him "Car-jill." Earlier in the episode, and in all the scenes after this, he correctly says "Cargill" with a hard G.

'V' For Vashon: The Father (2) - S5-E10

Character mistake: Chin and McGarrett call the bomber Marcos, but his name on the social security card says Macros and Vashon calls him Macros.

Death Wish on Tantalus Mountain - S5-E2

Character mistake: McGarrett tells Pereno that the sabotaged race car went over a cliff. But the car crashed into a wall, with no cliff in sight. It's very unlike Hawaii's top cop to get the facts wrong - especially when he was an eye witness to the event.

Trivia

Danno was played by Tim O'Kelley in the 5-0 pilot. But a NY test audience told CBS they didn't buy him as a serious cop because he was too much of a "smart-cracking, Jimmy-Olsen-type gee-whiz kid." Leonard Freeman took the criticism to heart, and recast the part with James MacArthur for the series.
