Person of Interest

Root Cause - S1-E13

Factual error: Finch's trojan tracker displays "accessing network on IP 623.173.93 .225.9." Not only is 623 an impossible number for an IP address to have, as they only go up to 255, it's also made up of 5 parts, instead of the 4 which IP addresses are limited to.

Skip - S4-E18

Factual error: The bounty hunter, Frankie's, car has a Florida license plate on the front of the car. Florida only issues one license plate for vehicles, and it goes on the rear of the vehicle. (00:15:15)


Panopticon - S4-E1

Factual error: John fires a grenade launcher at a street gang hangout bar front window. Aside from the fact that such a round would hardly have been slowed enough to just roll down the bar, the round is shown complete with cartridge case, which would remain behind in the launcher/gun - it doesn't fly with the round.

Return 0 - S5-E13

Factual error: Samaritan launches a cruise missile at the rooftop of 1133 Avenue of the Americas, where a satellite dish is located. A real US Navy Raytheon SM-6 missile, fired from a surface ship, would shoot down the cruise missile shortly after it was launched and long before it hit NYC.

C.O.D. - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Reese orders the cab driver to smash through a car blocking their escape which causes considerable damage to the front driver's side of the car. This damage is shown in one of those computerized captured pictures this show uses throughout each episode. Then in the next scene, when the cabbie is standing alongside his now parked cab, the front driver's side is now perfect, but when he walks around the car to talk to Reese, the passenger side is damaged. The passenger side had been untouched in the crash.
