The Job - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Jenko and Witten confront a guy creating a commotion in a market. The felon runs past them out to the sidewalk where, somehow, the two cops are waiting and grab him.


Fog of War - S10-E14

Factual error: During the funeral towards the end of the episode, both Jamie and Eddie are wearing white shirts with their dress uniforms. In the NYPD, only Lieutenant and above wear white shirts, like the show has portrayed. The color doesn't change for the dress uniform. (00:38:35 - 00:41:14)

Atonement - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode when the older mobster is walking from his car down a narrow alleyway toward home, he passes under a low hanging outdoor light fixture.

Second Chances - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: While Danny and Baez are questioning Damian about Mason's whereabouts, Damian's right handcuff switches to the opposite way depending on the angle of the shots. Either the single metal bar faces up or the double bar faces up, which is quite impossible to change when it's locked around his wrist.

Mob Rules - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: Franks makes a comment that there have only been 18 deaths last year in New York, but Danny on his own closed more than 30 in the season before.

Lost and Found - S4-E5

Other mistake: Danny says "14 years ago today I kissed Linda" but in previous episodes they were celebrating their 16th anniversary.

Friends in Need - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: As Danny and Jaime are at the range shooting near the middle of the episode, their targets from behind and the grouping of shots they take are really tight together. When they retrieve their targets a minute later, the grouping from the front is completely different and further apart than what was seen from behind the target.


Blackout - S9-E4

Frank Reagan: And I don't have a Teflon suit. Everything gets to me. Every time one of ours is hurt, or jammed up, or he's in over his head, it gets to me. I just don't show it, 'cause I can't show it, 'cause nobody wants, or needs, a sensitive police commissioner.
Sid Gormley: OK.
Frank Reagan: So screw you!
Sid Gormley: Yes, sir. That an order, too?
Frank Reagan: Yeah, that's an order.
Sid Gormley: Screw me. I'm on it, boss.

Show generally

Question: What is the green and white striped American looking flag in the commissioner's office?

Answer: It's the New York Police Department flag, created in 1919. The stripes represent the 5 boroughs and the stars the different towns that made up New York (including New York City itself).


What about the other flag that is not the U.S. flag?

Please be more specific. Are you talking about the New York City flag?


It is the Iowa State flag. At least in the episode from 1/22/21.

It wouldn't be the Iowa State flag. Plus the Iowa State flag is blue, white, and red. The flag I think they're talking about is blue, white, and orange.
