Suggested correction: Actually no, in that angle and the way Jody kicked him away hard from the truck it's possible he landed a lot further away than you might think.

Before I submitted the mistake, I did take into account the angle and the distance that Jody kicked Bruneau, replayed the scene several times, and he did disappear, as there was a sidewalk and a length of lawn leading up to the apartment building where Bruneau should have been lying as Jesse and Jody took off in the truck.

Houdini and Doyle picture

Show generally

Factual error: The show starts in 1901 with a woman constable working for the Metropolitan Police Service (Scotland Yard). However women didn't join the Metropolitan Police until 1919 (which is also when the first woman's police uniform was created). Prior to that, women volunteered in the Women's Police Service, but that wasn't formed until 1914.

Rillington Place picture

Show generally

Factual error: With two exceptions, all the policemen shown in both 1949 and 1953 are wearing the old-fashioned tunics with high, closed collars. The Metropolitan Police adopted the more modern open-necked tunic with collar and tie in 1948, and this is shown worn by the policeman who visits Christie and by the officer who arrests him.

Angie Tribeca picture

Tribeca's Day Off - S1-E7

MacGyver picture

Seeds + Permafrost + Feather - S3-E17

Factual error: Bozer and for that matter I would assume all of the team went to a spycraft academy. A basic subject in any of such academies is surveillance, including proper techniques to follow and stake out someone. Bozer being so inept at tracking MacGyver's father is inconceivable given their training.
