Hawaii Five-0

Pua a'e la ka uwahi o ka moe - S9-E7

New this week 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)

Pua a'e la ka uwahi o ka moe - S9-E7

New this week Factual error: The episode refers repeatedly to a brand new 1941 Rolls Royce Phantom II. The Phantom II was discontinued in 1936. It should have been a Pantom III.

No ke ali'i wahine a me ka 'aina - S7-E2

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

Mea Makamae - S2-E4

Factual error: Near the end as the pallbearers are passing, Joe White and Steve McGarrett salute "uncovered" (not wearing a hat). U.S. Naval personnel are required to be "covered" when saluting.

Mister Ed

Kai e'e - S1-E15

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.

He Kane Hewa'ole - S1-E14

Factual error: Contrary to what Steve says, the U.S. do have an extradition treaty with France, which has been in effect since 2002.

Kanaka Hahai - S6-E18

Factual error: In episode 17, Danny's Camaro is subjected to a number of bursts from a mini-gun, riddling it from stem to stern. In episode 18, Danny's daughter mentions that he had just had it repaired. There is no way an insurance company would not total that vehicle, since it would require replacing or using "Bondo" on virtually every body panel, not to mention mechanical repairs.

He Kane Hewa'ole - S1-E14

Factual error: Kono is driving a 4-cylinder Chevy Cruze in pursuit of a V-8 Mustang, and manages to stay right behind it.

I Ka Wa Ma Mua, I Ka Wa Ma Hope - S8-E10

Factual error: If you put explosives on drywall it will obliterate it, not put a small hole in it.

Show generally

Factual error: In Steve's office behind his desk is a model of CVN 65 USS Enterprise. The island superstructure is back to front with the Bridge actually facing the rear. This glaring error is present in all episodes to date.
