Hawaii Five-0

Mai ka po mai ka 'oia'i'o - S9-E9

Continuity mistake: When Jerry visits the comic store, the girl behind the counter brings him a new batch of comics. In that frame, the register's screen in front of her has a new Microsoft Edge web opened. The camera then refocuses on Jerry and Grover. A few seconds later, the camera refocuses on the girl behind the counter showing the register's screen has something else opened. (00:25:05)

Ai no i ka 'ape he mane'o no ko ka nuku. - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: Jerry is briefing the team. He says that HPD processed "the van" and found... This is the first mention that HPD even found a van. They were looking with keys found on the victim to see if nearby vehicles would fit them, but there was no prior mention that they had found any vehicle at all. (00:08:50)


Ke iho mai nei ko luna - S9-E13

Continuity mistake: McGarett is going to free dive to Neptune 1 to take some scuba tanks to the crew below. We see him get in the water, and there is one tank ready to be passed to him. In the next shot he is being given the tanks, only now there are two. (00:37:10)


Hala I Ke Ala O'i'ole Mai - S9-E11

Continuity mistake: The McGarrett team is seen loading a US Coast Guard C-130H. Shortly thereafter, a takeoff shot shows a C-130, but it is not a Coast Guard aircraft. (00:08:10 - 00:11:00)

Pio ke kukui, po'ele ka hale - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: Before the gunfight, Joe tells Steve not to wait too long to find someone. There's a shot of the boards over the window beside him, and they're fully intact. Seconds later, when he says "no visual", well before the gunfire actually starts, they're suddenly riddled with bullet holes.

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.
