Titans picture

Origins - S1-E3

Factual error: Dick identifies a vehicle using licence plate. Problem is Michigan does not have front licence plates. (00:24:14)

Deep State picture

A Kind of Warfare - S1-E2

Other mistake: The shopkeeper hands Danny a Beretta 92fs/M9 handgun with a detached suppressor. To mount a suppressor to the muzzle end of the handgun the barrel needs to be threaded, and this one isn't. Sometimes barrels are threaded and when no suppressor is attached they are protected by a thread barrel cap to protect the threads from dings and bumps. There is no thread cap here either. (00:22:35)

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)

Harrow picture

Alea Iacta Est - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When Harrow and Nicholls are in what is supposed to be Queensland Police Headquarters, a window is visible with logos for Radio National and Triple J behind them. This shows that the scene was recorded at the offices of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. (00:31:04)

The Rookie picture

Greenlight - S1-E16

Factual error: Captain Anderson pulls a suspect underwater and shoots him. There's a bright, yellow flash under the water. In reality, this wouldn't happen, only a large amount of bubbles would appear, but no flash.

Boxing - S1-E5

The clamp however is being rolled in the direction to close off line's flow. (00:20:20)

Sonic Mania Adventures picture

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)

Narcos: Mexico picture

Leyenda - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: In the final minutes, it is possible to see a drone flying between the camera's point of view and the subject being filmed, the DEA agents' van going into Mexico. Likely filming equipment, but even if recreational it's hardly appropriate for the 80's. (01:06:30)

Continuity mistake: John Paul Getty approaches the kidnapper's cars and Getty removes his sunglasses and tucks them into his coat pocket. The next shot shows him still wearing them as the kidnappers approach.

Stoking Rebellion - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the diner when Tsunoda and Retsuko are talking, Tsunoda pulls out a red phone with a white heart on it from her purse. In the close up she is pulling it out with her left hand and the phone is horizontal with the heart on its side. It then cuts to a wide angle and suddenly she's holding the phone upright with both hands.
