Hawaii Five-O

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout first season: Due to stock footage spliced in from the pilot film, McGarrett's '68 4-door Mercury sedan often peeled away from the Ionali palace and then turned into a '67 2-door coupe as it cruised down Honolulu's streets.

Cocoon (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: As McGarret goes to call the cops, Brent removes the knife from the John Doe assailant's hand. As the angle changes, Brent takes the knife from the dead man's hand again.

Movie Nut

Full Fathom Five - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: There's much too abrupt a transition between Reese falling into the water and his body suddenly being back on the dock. As there's no time lapse implied at all, he seems to reappear on shore by magic. At least a brief shot of the body being fished out of the water might have helped. (00:49:40)

Samurai - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When McGarrett tells Deedee he thinks Tokura is still alive, he holds up Tokura's ring as proof. He holds the ring with his right hand, but when the shot cuts to Deedee and back, he's holding the ring in his left hand. (00:35:30)

Pray Love Remember, Pray Love Remember - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Danno walks several feet into McGarrett's office to make a report. Though there's no break in the dialogue and no time for him to have moved, the shot cuts and he's suddenly standing outside the door as they finish their conversation. (00:02:45)

King of the Hill - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Auston leaves the unconscious Dan Williams lying on his back. But in the next shot, Danno's lying on his side.

The Box - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: During the stand-off, Big Chicken is standing several inches to McGarrett's left, on the other side of a seam in the concrete wall. When the shot cuts to a closer angle, Chicken is instantly close enough to touch shoulders with McGarrett, and is now blocking the concrete seam. (00:25:30)

Six Kilos - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: McGarrett has infiltrated a crime syndicate and is standing on the patio of a beachside house with two men and a woman while Danno, in a boat several hundred yards offshore, is taking pictures with a camera and telephoto lens. When the pictures are developed, the background in the photos is the ocean, not the beach house and patio.

A Thousand Pardons -- You're Dead! - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Pool balls redistributed on pool table between the time after the Sargeant breaks and McGarrett casually takes a shot. Especially, noticeable since Tommy, the other player, does not move off the table's edge after the break when two balls comes towards his position and his bottom or pants may interfere with their travel. In the next shot involving the table, those balls are not there and the rest of them seem more evenly distributed across the table. (00:35:40 - 00:36:10)

To Hell with Babe Ruth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Nagata breaks into the boarded-up house, he walks through a doorway full of cobwebs, covering his black suit with white dust and webs. But when the shot changes, his suit is suddenly perfectly clean again. (00:10:00)

Just Lucky, I Guess - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Angela is talking to Sloan, her position in the hotel room chair changes back and forth noticeably between takes. (00:02:30)

Just Lucky, I Guess - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The bad guys are driving a dark green '62 Cadillac - with fins. After Five-O's sharp shooters fire at it, the Caddy hits a concrete wall. In the next shot of the wreck, the green '62 has turned into a black '64 - without fins. (00:42:45 - 00:44:35)

King Kamehameha Blues - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Danno, posing as a photographer on the beach, snaps the shutter at a bikini-clad girl and quips, "I only wish I had some film." Seconds later, he takes a picture of the suspects that's then used to identify them. The scene is continuous, and at no time did he ever load film into the empty camera, nor did he have another one. (00:34:30)
