5 mistakes

Genres: Crime, Drama, Mystery

Clarifications - S5-E8

New this month Continuity mistake: In the scene where Omar walks through some alleys on his way to stick up a corner crew, he is first observed carrying a double barreled shotgun with a wooden butt. A minute later, when he emerges from the alleys and dumps the drugs down the sewer, he is seen carrying a metal pump action shotgun.

All Prologue - S2-E6

Factual error: The police "clone" the cargo dock's computer, as though it were a cell phone, so that they can watch all the cargo traffic and see when containers disappear. In reality, to "clone" a computer would simply make an exact copy of that computer's hard drive at a specific point in time. In order to see what is happening on a specific computer in real time, it is necessary to install some sort of spyware on the target machine.

Hard Cases - S2-E4

Character mistake: Your hear one of the inmates saying the cut drugs were more rat poison than coke. Later in the meeting, where Avon Barksdale is going to tell them the source of the tainted drugs, his lawyer says it was heroin.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: In season 3, episode 10, "Reformation", during the opening sequence when two hoodlums are walking out of the convenience store, a lighting rig and crew can be seen on the right-most part of the frame.

Misgivings - S4-E10

Other mistake: When Chris and Snoop go to kill Bug's dad, they have their high powered nail gun once again, even after previously throwing it in the marsh with the guns. Bought a new one? Not likely as the reason for throwing it away in the first place was because the cop saw it. Buying an identical one would defeat the purpose of ditching it.
