To make matters worse, more fans responded with some further editing blunders from the very same episode.
One fan said: “When talking to the SEAL’s wife, she has her tennis racket under her arm in one shot but by her side in the next.”
While another added: “When Gibbs is talking to Kevin in his room, the position of the pen in Kevin’s hand is constantly changing between camera cuts.”
Thankfully, the NCIS production team have honed their skills and mistakes like these became less frequent as the series continued.
NCIS season 17 is available to stream on CBS All Access.
