Godless picture

Show generally

Factual error: Two women come into town somewhere around San Luis Valley, Colorado with ring-necked Pheasants. The pheasants were brought into US a few times (East coast, CA) but really did not get established until late 1880s and in Colorado likely in the late 1890s (eastern and southwestern). The problem is it supposedly depicts the year 1880. They would more likely may have found some Gunnisons Sage-Grouse nearby or rabbits. (00:16:10)

Sands of Jakku - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Rey grabs BB-8 and her staff, and then jumps up onto a fallen AT-AT Walker. She turns to look at the Nightwatcher worm and is standing right next to a very slime covered BB-8 on top of the AT-AT with her hand on his head. It cuts to a shot of the Nightwatcher from over Rey's shoulder and then back to a frontal view of her again from a higher angle. Rey didn't move once during those shots. But now she's suddenly standing further away from BB-8 to show the junk part between them, BB-8 now has much less slime on him, and the groove in the metal of the walker going down vertically behind BB-8 has vanished.

Frontline, Part 2 - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Andrews tells Mrs. Cross via video chat that her husband has blood in his NG tube, the clock in the top left corner of Mrs. Cross' phone says 5:09. Two shots later, it has suddenly changed to 5:01. A few moments later it changes to 5:10, then back to 5:01 and then for some reason to 4:53 at the end of the scene.

Valor picture

Show generally

Factual error: Every Time the Shadow Raiders deploy to Somalia, they use a Blackhawk nicknamed "Adele" for their missions. I can understand the helos being transported via fixed-wing aircraft, but on their last mission they leave Georgia, and reach Somalia the same day, flying in the Blackhawks. It would take them some 15-20 hours not including fuel stops. Yet the mission is completed in the time it takes to find a bomb in downtown Atlanta.

Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman picture

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The protagonist finally receives the Anmitsu, breaking his orgasmic trepidation. In the close-up, the tray is really close to the teacup, but in the following shot it's definitely further away, to the point that Kantaro in facts moves it to the right, in the same position shown in the close-up.

Six (2017)

Six picture

Factual error: The Navy Seals call in air support and provide a fire mission to given coordinates. The targets are engaged with rockets and gatling/chain guns. The UH-60 Black Hawk is shown leaving after the air strike. This UH-60 however only had mini-guns in the doors. The type of UH-60 needed for this action would be the UH-60 DAP, which is configured as a gunship and has no troop carrying capacity. The DAP can carry chain guns, mini-guns, missiles and or rockets. (00:03:00 - 00:03:23)

The Deuce picture

Show and Prove - S1-E2

Other mistake: The sign behind James Franco on the mirror behind the bar says, "Dinner Service Until 10pm". It's a modern paper printout and also a modern font, from a personal computer / printer which nobody would have at that time. (00:07:00 - 00:08:00)
