E'ao lu'au a kualima - S9-E17

Other mistake: Lou Grover is searching an apartment when he comes across five silver-topped drug vials in a bag. He reaches in and takes four of them, and then declares he has found the drug dealer's inventory. Why did he leave one behind? (00:27:10)


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

Other mistake: This episode shows a newspaper article about a Rolls Royce Phantom involved in an accident/murder. The article specifies it is a black car with a red interior. When the car is dug up, it has a black interior. (00:37:45)


Ua 'o'oloku ke anu I na mauna - S6-E3

Other mistake: The victim has been dead for six weeks, but when Steve and Lou enter his home, the printer is still printing bills. (00:19:35)

Ke iho mai nei ko luna - S9-E13

Other mistake: A Five-0 member makes an atmosphere check of the Neptune 1 air. It shows 0.7% oxygen, 80% helium, and 16% nitrogen. A previous check had shown these were the only gases present. So what happened to the other 2.3% of the air? Helium and Nitrogen should have been proportionately higher so as to add up to 100%. (00:29:45)


Ke Kinohi - S1-E13

Other mistake: An important key to the first season's plot is the "dancing men" code on the postcard. We see the postcard several times leading up to Ep 1:13. It shows 3 lines of code containing 4, 4, then 3 characters. In this episode, however, Steve brings out his workings on a yellow legal pad to show the others. There are more characters on his pad than are on the postcard, and some of the characters (for example those with both arms on one side of their bodies) do not even appear in his workings. He claims to have used frequency analysis to work out the code. If one uses frequency analysis on the actual code we see on the postcard, the result can never be Hiro Noshimuri. (00:23:35)


Ohana - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In scene when Steve & Danny enter secret room, when shot pans across there is only a clipboard between the last middle and right side keyboards. Seven shots later, there is a mouse next to the clipboard. (00:21:00)

Suggested correction: The name of McGarrett's father is not Jack, it's John.


Maybe not literally, but it's a common nickname for people named John. See John F. Kennedy and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
