The Last Post picture

Episode #1.2 - S1-E2

Factual error: The catalogue of errors made by the SAS team (e.g. being caught out in the open, not posting a watch, not using cover) would be unlikely to be made by an ordinary trained infantryman, let alone an elite special forces unit.

Cinethrax - S1-E2

Other mistake: There is a countdown on the movie screen. It is then reflected in Dusty's glasses. But the numbers are not reversed in the glasses. (00:41:00)

In Another Life - S2-E3

Deliberate mistake: The police force in the town is the Gendarmerie, the standard issued firearm is the Sig Sauer P2022 in 9mm. The police officers on this show carry a Beretta and not the 9x19mm one which is the model 92fs, they carry a never issued Beretta 84 chambered in .32 acp or 9mm short. Plus they use some weird holster where the gun arches out and hangs low like a cowboy holster and dangles around. Easy for a suspect to gain control of the officers gun and this happened in this episode.

Himmel und Hölle picture

Show generally

Factual error: Johann Eck is dressed as a cardinal and Albrecht von Brandenburg addresses him as "Your Eminence" and kisses his ring. In reality, Eck was not a cardinal. Albrecht, however, was. It should be Eck showing deference to him, not vice versa. Albrecht was also only thirty, half the age of the actor playing him.

The Gang Tries to Serve a Subpoena - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: Luca and party are about to board a green private jet. Moments later when they take off, the shot shows the forward underside of a white plane. At first I thought that maybe it was white on the underside, but the nose wheel well doors are indeed green, and the takeoff picture shows an airplane with white nose wheel doors. (00:19:40)
