Murder He Wrote - S5-E4

Factual error: On the way to the Hamptons, Castle's car is driving on the left side of the road, even though they're in the US (where people drive on the right side of the road). (00:03:10)

Smells Like Teen Spirit - S6-E15

Factual error: German bearer bonds would never have English writing on them, and furthermore instead of just saying "German bearer bonds" the company or other entity that issued them would be named.

Recoil - S5-E13

Factual error: The team is discussing the location of the Widmark hotel which the detective says is downtown. Beckett then looks at the map and locates it only 5 blocks from E 72nd street, which is UPTOWN in NYC. Furthermore the map shows E 72 intersecting Broadway which is on the west side of Manhattan. This entire mapping exercise is incorrect.

One Life to Lose - S3-E18

Factual error: When Castle and Beckett go to talk to the victim's assistant, there is a chalk outline on the floor where the body was discovered. Although it's common in police dramas, chalk outlines are not actually police procedure, because it contaminates the crime scene. (00:08:40)

Den of Thieves - S2-E21

Factual error: The con is said to be electrocuted. But the jump start cables are connected to handcuffs which would short the electrical circuit and most probably melt the handcuff chain, but wouldn't electrocute the victim. (00:02:50)

Home Is Where the Heart Stops - S1-E7

Factual error: The shots of the West Side towards the end of the episode are reversed: you can see traffic on the West Side Highway moving in the wrong directions. (00:40:10)
