Continuity mistake: Steve and Danny are searching a suspect's house. Danny picks up a digital camera. He is going through some photos and the LCD display shows 53 photos on the memory card. The counter shows from 53/54 to 50/54. Then he shows Steve other photos and the counter shows only 4 photos. 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4.ppdixx
Continuity mistake: When McGarrett is behind the curtain, preparing for the charity fight. McGarrett and the injured fighter, Victor Boriero, share a joke about the dislocated shoulder. Boriero stands behind Lori. McGarrett says "Besides, I'm the one who dislocated your shoulder." Lori giggles, turns to share the joke with Boriero. Boriero says "Yeah, I didn't forget." Lori turns back to face McGarrett (camera shot from behind), and in the next camera shot (camera shot from in front) she turns back to face McGarrett again. (00:37:50)Stripey
Factual error: A defibrillator is needed immediately. Adam runs to a storage closet and rummages around for a while, and finally finds a defibrillator deep under other things. This medical clinic is a public place. No one would ever bury an automated external defibrillator (AED) under other items in a storage room. AEDs would be visible and accessible for just such emergencies, as instructed on the devices themselves. (00:35:35)toroscan
Factual error: A 1932 haulage receipt is shown on screen. It says Hawaii, HI. There was no such abbreviation used for Hawaii until June 1963. The territory was spelled out in full. In June 1963 it was HAW, and then changed to HI in October 1963 with the advent of ZIP codes. (00:38:50)toroscan
Character mistake: After being asked in class, Max refers to what he does as a "vivisection of a once-living organism", which in itself is a contradiction because vivisections are performed on living organisms. What Max does is called dissection, or more specifically autopsy, because he does it to determine the cause of death.Tanngrisnir
Factual error: Five-0 brings up a map of all nuclear power plants in Western Europe that is completely inaccurate - most of the trefoil markers in Great Britain are placed nowhere near nuclear installations, and has 3 in Ireland (which doesn't have any nuclear reactors).Andy Benham 6979
Deliberate mistake: The police car Steve & Danny are driving on the bridge as they approach the freighter has 467 on the roof, which then becomes flipped & backwards a few shots later as they take a sharp right, only to become 467 again (as Danny has conversation with Rachel). (00:38:10 - 00:39:05)
Factual error: The aircraft carrier towards the beginning is captioned as being the USS Enterprise (CVN-65), where Lt Rollins is stationed. It is obviously not the 'Big E', but a much smaller escort carrier or amphibious assault vessel. Notable differences are not only the sheer size difference, but also lacks the angled flight deck with the protruding catapult brakes, the second port side aircraft elevator and both the superstructure and bow shape are wrong.
Continuity mistake: Danny is taking to some Victoria's Secret models on the beach. They ask to see photos of his daughter. He is talking to them and he pulls out his cell phone from his pants pocket. Next shot, you see him reach for his pocket again and once again he pulls out his phone.ppdixx
