I’m celebrating 100 episodes of FBI Retired Case File Review with a special crime fiction show exploring clichés and misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies. My co-host for this episode is retired agent Bobby Chacon. We have both “been there” and “done that.” What most people know about the FBI comes from popular culture. This list features what writers of novels, scripts, and screenplays sometimes get wrong about the Bureau and FBI agents. This is my second list. In Episode 50, I also wrote about this topic. Both lists were created for those who read and watch crime fiction about the FBI, write crime fiction and thrillers about the FBI, and who have always wanted to join the FBI.

Why should you care if entertainment media gets things wrong about the FBI in books, TV, and movies?

Why does it matter if films and novels occasionally contain false information about the FBI?
