The A-Team mistake picture

Labor Pains - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the beginning during the bridge jump scene, the A-Team van changes. It suddenly has round headlights, its hub caps can be seen popping off when it lands, and it doesn't have any spotlights. The real van has double square shaped headlights, steel spoked rims, and spotlights.

Mister Ed

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Throughout numerous episodes while the team is supposed to be driving the van, the gear selector can be seen in the "park" position.

Mister Ed

The Beast From the Belly of a Boeing - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: The Boeing 747 in this episode is supposed to belong to Beller Air, however exterior shots show the TWA Airlines logo.

Mister Ed

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Factual error: When the team is in uniform for their friend's funeral, Smith and Peck (both commissioned officers) have their Special Forces insignias on their berets when they should have their rank insignia.

Mister Ed

Pros and Cons - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: As Hannibal and Murdock are coming over the wall of the jail in their hot-air-trash-bag chairs, you can see that the brick is a facade as the guard shoots at them. (41:25 / 41:39).

Good Job!

Diamonds 'n' Dust - S2-E1

Factual error: The A-Team go to South Africa to help a diamond mine, and every single vehicle is left-hand drive. South Africa use right-hand drive cars.

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the A-Team drops watermelons on the pickup truck, the windshield shatters. The next shot after this, the truck flips over, but the windshield is intact.

A Little Town With an Accent - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: When Sonny Marlini gets in his car at the gas station and drives off (after Hannibal has refused his offer), a movie light can be seen reflected in the car's window.

Gavin Jackson

Labor Pains - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: The Ballot Box label is written backwards: TOLLAB XOB. May be an indication that the shot was flipped. (41:50).

Good Job!

When You Comin' Back, Range Rider? (1) - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When the A-Team van is pulled out of the water, Captain Crane opens the door to look inside for bodies; you can see right through the front of the van. There is no engine and it is simply a shell of the van.

Good Job!

Blood, Sweat, and Cheers - S4-E8

Character mistake: In the scene where Jack is phoning Col. Decker to give him the A-Team's location, the camera zooms to a wanted poster of the three members. The poster lists Faceman as the rank of Captain, instead of Lieutenant.

Labor Pains - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The second van has no GMC badge, no number plate and only one windscreen wiper.

Scriv

Quarterback Sneak - S5-E4

Factual error: When the two men are watching the soccer game between the USA and East Germany, look at the 'East' German shirts - they are actually WEST German shirts (white with black trim, with even the stylised eagle of the DFB (the West German Soccer Federation).

Andy Benham

Bounty - S3-E22

Other mistake: The bridge jump scene in this episode is recycled from the season two episode "Labor Pains" where the van changes.

Mister Ed

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Other mistake: As the team is chasing the thug's truck, they toss explosives at it. The charges miss on either side, but the truck is hit anyway. As the truck comes to a rest on its side you can see that there is no engine in it. Also, as the team stops at the truck, the head thugs come out from behind the truck and try to run. They didn't have enough time to get out, let alone get ready to run.

Movie Nut

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: As the team is driving through the warehouse, they are shooting up the place. The time that the car can get from one side of the space inside to the other at their speed is about three seconds. Unless they were driving in circles, they stopped inside to shoot people with oil squirting hoses, shoot up and wreck the place and get going. Even though the sound said they were moving, the physics say otherwise.

Movie Nut

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: While driving in and through the bad guy's warehouse, Murdock is driving and firing the gun on the driver's side. As the camera does a close up on him driving, you can see it is a reused shot of him driving outside, as you can see not only trees, but BA's relaxed arms behind him. Trouble there is that BA is firing the top mounted gun. Also, after the close up of Murdock, you see his left hand on the wheel. When the camera cuts to the driver's gun, his left hand is suddenly firing it, and behind that, you that the background isn't moving.

Movie Nut

There's Always a Catch - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: While running from the hospital, BA has a camouflage top on. When they are getting away in the van, BA's top changes from camo to a pink top with black tiger stripes.

Movie Nut

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Other mistake: After the team stops the rig, the driver jumps up into his cab to get a phone. When he picks up the receiver an it has an analog dial wheel in it. But when he dials, it's on the unseen console.

Movie Nut

A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: After the Watkins Brothers run the A-Team Van off the road and the van flips; the Van suddenly becomes a Ford Econline van with Stock wheels, very much different from the original red turbine mag wheels on the GMC.

Good Job!
