Impact - S1-E1

Other mistake: Right at the start, as they're crashing, the computer narrates their rapidly-dropping altitude in feet. But the "altitude" dial we're shown is in metres. Most noticeable as they cross the 3,000 mark, when the computer voice and the height say/show the same number at the same time, despite the different units. 3,000m would be more like 9,000 feet, or 3,000 feet would be more like 1,000m.

The Mother-in-Law - S1-E5

Other mistake: Episodes 4 and 5 of season 1 aired noticeably out of order. In episode 4, "The Nanny," Alex's former Nanny, Rosalba, comes to work at his podcast company, and its name, "Ajana," is mentioned a few times. But episode 5, "The Mother-in-Law," starts with the company unnamed; over the course of the episode, Alex learns of the concept of "ajana," the unknown, from his mother-in-law and chooses it as his company's name.

Episode #1.6 - S1-E6

New this month Factual error: When Commander Anne Sampson appears in her body armour she wears the rank insignia only worn by the Commissioner (a crown over a pip over crossed tipstaves in a wreath) instead of that worn by her own rank of Commander (crossed tipstaves in a wreath). She has apparently been promoted four ranks.

Tuesday - S1-E9

Factual error: At O'Neil's retirement party, '2-Way' by Lil Romeo is playing while one of the characters is dancing. This scene is set in the summer of 2001, the song was released in April 2002, nearly a year after the retirement party took place.

Stuck - S1-E1

Factual error: The Seattle Police officer's uniform for the City of Seattle is not correct. Seattle Police don't wear light blue shirts anymore. The Seattle Police uniform is dark blue (shirts and pants) and the department has a redesigned patch. (01:15:00)

Day 51 - S1-E6

Deliberate mistake: Likely for safety reasons, the fire that engulfs Mount Carmel is more clean and controlled than the fire from the real incident.

Troy: Fall of a City picture

Black Blood - S1-E1

Other mistake: All the Greek name variants are used over the Latin ones - including even "Odysseus" over the more familiar "Ulysses" (who is the same person). However when the story of Actaeon comes up, it's suddenly the goddess "Diana" that he saw. But all the gods have their Greek names, so that should be "Artemis." (As indeed is used in episode 2). (00:39:35)

Harvest - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Ruth Deaver is helping Alan Pangborn put on his tie. The camera is facing Ruth's back and we see Alan's face in the mirror. The camera then switches angles to face Alan's back and Ruth's face. Alan's collar which was popped straight up from the first angle is now perfectly down over his newly tied tie from the second angle. (00:24:55)

Factual error: Sergeant Bumpher never wears any rank insignia. He appears to just be a constable.

Sonic Returns - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Just before the portal opens where Sonic comes out by a water fall, you get a good view of the ground around where he comes out at and there are no holes. But once he emerges, he looks around and then looks down and suddenly there are large holes that become what he focuses on. (00:00:25)
