Maigret picture

The Patience of Maigret - S1-E1

Other mistake: A newspaper headline reads "MAIGRET tient t'il enfin le tueur?" This makes no sense in French. It should read "MAIGRET tient-il enfin le tueur?" ("Does Maigret have the killer at last?"). (00:27:55)

Hawaii Five-0 picture

Ke Kinohi - S1-E13

Other mistake: An important key to the first season's plot is the "dancing men" code on the postcard. We see the postcard several times leading up to Ep 1:13. It shows 3 lines of code containing 4, 4, then 3 characters. In this episode, however, Steve brings out his workings on a yellow legal pad to show the others. There are more characters on his pad than are on the postcard, and some of the characters (for example those with both arms on one side of their bodies) do not even appear in his workings. He claims to have used frequency analysis to work out the code. If one uses frequency analysis on the actual code we see on the postcard, the result can never be Hiro Noshimuri. (00:23:35)

The Good Wife picture

After the Fall - S3-E16

Other mistake: Regarding the suicide of Karen Anderson, her boyfriend explains that Karen hadn't been studying with him because she wanted to be in the sun all day, but all the footage of the bridge she jumped from shows it to have been a mostly overcast, gray day. The first shot of the bridge is at the very beginning of the episode and is repeated several times throughout.

Murdoch Mysteries picture

Home for the Holidays - S11-E1

Other mistake: Only one set of prints were said to be on the garrote but in the last episode of season 10 Graham handles the garrote before handing it over to the murderer without wearing gloves. So there should have been 2 sets of prints.

Ray Donovan picture

If I Should Fall from Grace with God - S5-E7

Other mistake: End of episode 6 it's nighttime in LA, they also show Bridget in a church in NY, where Terry is in confession. Beginning of episode 7 it's still nighttime in LA, when Terry walks out of confession it's daytime in New York. It does not make sense for Terry to go to confession mid episode 6 (during daytime in LA).

Spider-Man picture

Night of the Lizard - S1-E1

Other mistake: Spider-Man is shown web-slinging past several glass buildings, but he does not cast a reflection in any of them. (00:00:10)
