Hawaii Five-0

Ka 'i'o - S10-E7

New this month Factual error: McGarrett is reviewing a brief on a suspected cartel operative. He shows a picture and says it is called a "tela de araña" saying it is a spider web. Wrong. A spider web in Spanish is a "telaraña", all one word. (00:05:13)


Ka 'i'o - S10-E7

New this month Factual error: A man gets out of his car and identifies himself as a Special Agent. He shows McGarrett a badge and an ID card identifying him as a Special Agent of the CIA. There is no such thing. The CIA does not have Special Agents. They have Operations Officers. And it would be extremely unlikely they would have a badge, as they are not law enforcement officers. (00:01:45)


Ka 'i'o - S10-E7

New this month Factual error: The plane taking McGarrett from Panama to Mexico purports to be owned by a Mexican fishing company. But the registration number on the plane starts with an N and has 5 numbers and a letter. First of all, a Mexican aircraft would not have a registration number starting with an N. That is reserved for aircraft of US registry. All that aside, the registration number is invalid. US aircraft have at most five characters after the N. The registration - as I suspected - was shown to be in an invalid format when queried in the Federal Aviation Administration database. (00:11:18)


E Uhi Ana Ka Wa I Hala I Na Mea I Hala - S10-E3

Factual error: HPD's cyber unit is allegedly tracking an IP address, but the address onscreen starts with 258. Impossible, as IP addresses only go up to 255.

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.
