Hawaii Five-O (1968)

5 factual errors in season 2

Bored, She Hung Herself - S2-E16

Factual error: Don, who professes to be a Buddhist, chants in the jail cell and refers to Buddha as "god." Adherents to this religion do not worship the Buddha and never refer to him as god. Later on, Don chants to Krishna, a Hindu deity not even remotely connected with Buddhism. So, just what is Don - a Buddhist or a Krishna?

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

Factual error: Danno, who's posing as a Marine, has hair that's far too long to be permitted in the Corps. In fact, all of the Marines in this episode have non-regulation (too long) haircuts. 'T'was the same then as it is now: US Marines are given "buzz jobs," and hair longer than an inch is not allowed.

Run, Johnny, Run - S2-E17

Factual error: Tommy races past the outside of two of Five-O's office windows before climbing in through a third. Unless he can fly, this is impossible: McGarrett's office is on the second floor, and its windows have balconies that are not connected to each other.

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

Factual error: At the end, Simms shoots at McGarrett and is instantly riddled with bullets from the 8 or 9 cops who shoot back. Yet, when McGarrett walks over to the body, there are no holes - and no blood - marring Simms' pristine uniform.
