Factual error: During the examination of the crime scene at the beginning of the episode, not one of the Crime Scene Officers or any of the police on site wear latex gloves. The supervising police officer picks up a vital piece of evidence - a small bag of jewellery - with bare hands! They have hopelessly contaminated the scene.PEDAUNT
Factual error: In the scene where T.J. Is explaining the formula to Mo that is written on the board, the right side of the equation (x-1)^2 is wrong. It should be x^2 - 2x + 1, not x^2 - 2x - 1 when expanded. Also, at the start of the scene with the formula, the coach who is teaching the class states he wrote it, and then it is assumed T.J. came up and finished solving the equation, but the writing is exactly the same.

Factual error: When His Divine Shadow lays on the table to have his brain removed, the machine cuts his skull open and simply reaches in with a three pronged hand and tugs on the brain pulling it out. It would not have worked this way... The brain is about the same consistency as gravy and the prongs on the hand/claw putting pressure on it to pull would have caused them to sink into the brain's tissue destroying it. Also it pulls the brain out without cutting or separating it from the spinal column and merely just pulls it out from the top. This would have caused his brain to be torn into pieces as it was tried to be pulled off the spinal column, not come out perfectly in one piece as shown. (01:09:00)Quantom X
