Hawaii Five-0 mistake picture

Ohana - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In scene where Kono makes origami crane, she sets it down on top of Evan's Ipod. Next shot the crane is sitting next to the Ipod. (00:26:30)

Ohana - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In scene where Chin starts reviewing footage of white van attacking, in first shot a wheel from the NSA guy's van has rolled off and comes to rest immediately in front of attacking van's driver side front wheel. In next shot as driver exits, loose wheel is missing. (00:11:20)

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)

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.

Aloha Ke Kahi I Ke Kahi - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Danny and Steve are talking in the car. In some shots you can see the car's door lock pin is up and in some it is down.

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)

Ho'ohuli Na'au - S1-E22

Character mistake: Kono and a lab tech are stopping at several stations to sample their 87 Octane gas, yet at the third gas station he uses the middle pump that reads "Plus" which would be 89 octane - the wrong gas. (00:19:10)

Good Job!

Ko'olauloa - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When McGarrett chases the bad guys' Jeep, his Camaro skids through several huge dust clouds. Immediately after each cloud, however, the car is perfectly clean again. This is visible in several of the very rapid shots throughout the chase. After the chase ends, a coating of dirt and mud (which, incidentally, differs from the earlier shots) appears on the Camaro.

Ka Ho' Oponopono - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When the teenagers look up at Emily's window, it's half open. When they climb to it, it's completely open. When McGarrett arrives, the window is half open again. (00:05:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In first shot of Steve's dad's house ocean-,side, there is no crime scene tape, but two shots later as Steve enters from the back tape is shown in double rows across left side of back yard and across the length of the area under the upper deck. (00:10:25)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where McGarrett's dad's house is seen for the first time from ocean-side, deck on the top floor has furniture (wicker two-seat bench and two chairs under double windows with long table to the right) and the lower level has no furniture in grass to left of the ramp, and two large vases on either side of the ramp. Then two shots later (same scene) as Steve approaches under the crime scene tape, there is no furniture on the upper deck but now furniture to left of ramp and vases are missing. (00:10:25)

E Malama - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Danny goes to the police station and Grace runs to hug him, her left arm switches from being around his neck to under his arm.

Boobra

Pilot - S1-E1

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

Tanngrisnir

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