11 continuity mistakes in season 2

King Kamehameha Blues - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: As Kono talks to Johnny Kalama in the students' apartment, an orange lava lamp sits on the shelf between them. Each time the camera angle reverses, the wax bubbles in the lamp are very noticeably in different positions and configurations.

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.

Nightmare Road - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: At the end, Krenter is shot during the final gun battle on the beach. Between takes, his body and the deflated rubber raft that was also on the sand both disappear.

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.

Leopard on the Rock - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Although the plane making an emergency landing is repeatedly referred to as a jet, the aircraft we see in the air (and later landing) is a prop job.

Nightmare Road - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Recycled footage is again a bit too obvious here, when McGarrett's 4-door Mercury suddenly becomes the 2-door model he drove in the pilot film. It also causes him to arrive, exit the car and walk into the building wearing a grey suit, but enter the Federal agent's office in the next shot wearing a blue suit.

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.

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.

Three Dead Cows at Makapuu (2) - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When the surfer examines the test tube in his beach shack, the level of white powder inside the tube keeps changing between shots. It's nearly full, then has only an inch inside, then is full again, etc.

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.
