Ohana - S1-E2

Pilot - S1-E1

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)

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.

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)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Danny shows the picture with Dana and Craig to Sofia, his hand moves from the top of the picture to the side, and the left arm changes position as well, since his hand was off the table, and now it is on it. (00:23:45)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In the long bickering with Steve while they kinda talk with Sofia, Danny picks up the badge the Steve put on the table, put it down before the cut talking about bad relationship decisions, but in the next shot he's gesturing again with the badge. (00:23:10)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Steve and Danny sit at the diner's where they need to meet with the fugitive's girlfriend. As Danny gives Steve the speech about the "mammal to mammal" interactions he puts his toothpick in his mouth, but it vanishes in the front view, only to be plucked back at the beginning of the next shot. (00:22:35)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Danny knocks interrupting the brother/sister moment; Mary in the second shot is leaning against her right hand, not so in the previous close-up. (00:20:05)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Inside Steve's office, Mary says that she would have taken anything from their dad, even disappointment,"because at least it would have been something." In that close-up, her hair is noticeably different than in the rest of the scene, much thinner over the shoulders. (00:19:45)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Steve says to his sister "I don't get it, Mary", he is rolling (again) the right sleeve which becomes the left at the cut mid-sentence. (00:19:30)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the gang finds Dana, she is lying down with her hand under her breast, on the bloodied flower, and under the breast again. (00:16:50)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Other mistake: The episode makes sure to mention the real places where the action happens. The fugitive escapes from Halawa Correctional Facility, and dumps the car at Kaka Ľako Beach Park, which is about 25 minutes away. Danny and the others arrive at the location way before Steve, who was at the airport, which is roughly 15 mins away from the penitentiary (kinda odd that they'd happen to be even closer than him, but fine). They have then the footage to investigate, the guard to talk to, the game of hoops with the prisoners, go back to their precinct, but despite the huge headstart Ellers had, they catch the car that was abandoned "15 minutes earlier." Moreover, Chin calls Danny to tell him about the car only after he already investigated the location and interrogated the witness. It can't even be 15 minutes, because 15 minutes is when the fugitive bought the products from the market, and he still needed to dye his hair.

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Dana's fiancé unzips her as instructed and tells her "God, you're beautiful" and cups her face. Cut and suddenly she has her hands on his cheeks as well. (00:16:15)

Lanakila - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When the sheriff's snipers drop the man in orange, he lies on the floor with his legs in the sun, some other shots fully in shadow. (00:01:40)

Malama Ka Aina - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Watching the old football game, when number 5-O gets tackled, Kono takes a handful of popcorn that she already took in the previous shoot (a close-up on Scott Caan). (00:39:15)

Malama Ka Aina - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Kono and Danny do a bit of theatrics distracting Frank Salvo and his men that are about to waste cousin Sid. The henchman behind the Samoan gang member is not touching him in the wide shot, but has both hands on his shoulders in the closer cut. (00:34:15)

Malama Ka Aina - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Kono just entered the casino posing as waitress-entertainer. She is snooping around and a guy promptly shoos her back with the others. She does a sassy lil' move with her right hand...but it's the left hand at the cut. (00:28:25)

Malama Ka Aina - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Danny and Steve leave Joey in the shark cage, he looks at them panicked grabbing the side with the ladder, but when they take off, he's clinging to the opposite side of the cage. (00:22:35)

Steve McGarrett: Let me ask you something. How deep did you have to dig? I mean, how much of your soul did you just lose by actually appreciating me?
