72 mistakes

Starring: John Schneider

Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy

The Ghost of General Lee - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When the bad guys from Sweetwater county try to steal Boss' safe, you see them pushing it up a ramp into the pickup truck. But in the next shot, when Daisy calls the operator, the safe is in the corner. And when Bo and Luke go to untie Daisy, the safe is gone.

Dukes Meet Cale Yarborough - S2-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When the General Lee makes a great jump (in fact the jump is used in the opening credits of the show starting in season 2), you can see a camera hooked to the bottom of the car on the passenger's side.

One Armed Bandits - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The chase with Daisy in Rosco's squad car ends with a piano slamming into the car. When the truck hauling it comes to a stop, there's a reaction shot of Daisy at the wheel of the squad car. In the next shot, when the piano hits it, the car is empty. A second later, Rosco gets out of the truck and Daisy is back in the driver's seat.

Road Pirates - S2-E5

Factual error: When Roscoe tries the same jump the Dukes did, his car goes nose first into the wall of the ravine. Upon a close up, Roscoe is fine, but not wearing a seatbelt. According to physics, he should go through the windshield or get cut up.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: After picking up Marlowe, the deputy with them mentions the car following them. They're out in the wide open area, but the car in the mirror is in the downtown area. Then after a quick cut, they're in the downtown area of Springville again.

Dukes Meet Cale Yarborough - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: While being chased by Roscoe in the beginning, the close ups of Bo and Luke don't show anyone behind them. Yet the long shots show Roscoe right behind them.

Road Pirates - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the boys and Cletus are being chased by Roscoe, they use the nitro. When the car is jumping the creek, as it is seen from the back before it lands, you can see one person wearing the Deputy hat. This shot was re-used from the beginning of the episode.

The Meeting - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After Boss and Roscoe come down to the jail where the Dukes have the mobsters trapped, Boss pulls out a cigar. After the camera cuts a wide shot, the cigar is missing. Then Boss pulls out the cigar again.

Gold Fever - S2-E2

Plot hole: Roscoe and Enos are chasing the boys. They are well ahead of the Sheriff and go up into a semi with a conveniently made ramp to lose the cops. The dust was dissipated enough that Roscoe, coming up from the rear, could have seen the General in the trailer. Roscoe couldn't be that blind. Plus the trucker couldn't miss the movements of the truck settling down from the sudden adding of two tons.

Movie Nut

Route 7-11 - S1-E12

Character mistake: In this episode, they constantly refer to the semi as an eighteen wheeler. The tractor would have tandem (two) rear axles with dual tires. This one has only one rear axle on the tractor. Added up, the rig only has fourteen wheels.

Route 7-11 - S1-E12

Other mistake: In the opening sequence, there's a shot from on top of the General Lee. As they do a one-eighty, you can see skid marks on the road where they have done other turns.

Money to Burn - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When the hearse is pulled up to the coffin works, the driver is left alone to look at his map. If you look to his left, you can see the reflection of the lighting rig.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The boys already had dynamite arrows made up. When they go to stop Marlowe's car, Luke says "Twenty-five percent charge ought to do it." They weren't carrying any extra dynamite, and weren't carrying the bags that held the bows where they would have had the extra charges.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Factual error: While the boys are chasing Marlowe in town after he takes Price's gun, he fires at them. He fires eight shots out of a six shooter without reloading. Also, Luke puts an arrow into the car to stop Marlowe, and steam comes out. But the arrow is too far back to have hit the radiator, and it only went in about an inch, far too high to have even touched the radiator.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The road that the Dukes are travelling on was clear about two minutes before, and the thugs were right behind them. After turning around to go the right way, they find the area they just came through blocked by a semi. No way the truck could have been set there that fast.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When the thug's car lands, you see it hit the ground in the distance shot. Then in the close up from the car mounted camera, you see it hit again.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As the Marlowe's men swerve to miss the ambulance, it goes airborne. As it does, you can see the camera mounted on the right side of the car.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When the boys are stopping to check the ambulance, you can see the smoke device burning used to simulate the engine running badly.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the chase with the blue car, Price's hat goes on and off several times.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: While running from the blue car, the area behind the Sheriff's car is an open area with a tan truck behind them. After the cut to watch the cars turn, the background area changes to the town, and the tan truck is gone. Also, Springville has all dirt roads, but during the chase, they run off the dirt and you can see the roads and buildings of Hazzard.
