Best TV mistakes of 1974
Other mistake: JJ says that everybody else in the office just has to look at their watch when the boss asks them the time but he has to go outside down the block because he can't afford a watch. Throughout the whole scene, you can see a wristwatch on his right wrist. He even raises his arm where his sleeve moves to his elbow to show it. It looks like a pretty expensive watch too.
Continuity mistake: In an episode of Mary Tyler Moore (from which Rhoda spun off) entitled "Rhoda's Sister Gets Married," Rhoda's sister Debbie, predictably, got married. In the show Rhoda, Rhoda had only one sister, Brenda, who was not married, nor had she ever been.
Factual error: There is no physical way that Steve Austin could perform most of his superhuman feats of strength in the ABC television series, due to the fact that they simply replaced his arm and legs, but didn't rebuild or reinforce the rest of his skeleton and muscles to handle the physical loads. Interestingly, author Martin Caidin (creator of Steve Austin in his novel, "Cyborg") actually did describe an incredibly complex whole-body rebuild that included vertebral reinforcement and ribcage and pelvis replacement, which were far more factual than the subsequent ABC television interpretation. ABC only accepted the series on the condition that it was less technical for their audience.
