All of Us Are Dead picture

Episode #1.4 - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Lee is being interrogated, at one point (after the detective says "Are you crazy?") the detective walks towards the large two-way mirror and you can see a clear reflection of a cameraman in the lower part of the mirror. (00:27:31)

Strange New Worlds - S1-E1

Character mistake: The Enterprise is targeted by projectiles from the planet. Spock identifies them as "plasma torpedoes", and Captain Pike reacts with surprise; "Plasma torpedoes? That's 21st century tech" and from that they all establish that the civilization they contacted is not yet capable of warp drive. Plasma torpedoes are the main weaponry of the Romulans centuries later, and Earth itself did acquire warp drive in the 21st century, so this claim and deduction don't seem to add up. (00:22:15)

Quantum Leap picture

Salvation or Bust - S1-E5

Factual error: The bad guy tells the townsfolk to 'Get out of Dodge.' Not a saying used used in 1879, despite Dodge City being a real place. In fact by this time Dodge City was no more violent than many other places, so it wouldn't have been used as a direct comparison either. There's no record of this specific phrase being used until Gunsmoke, in 1955.

The Family - S1-E6

Character mistake: The pharmacist says she's sorry, but they don't have the drug Lamotrigine in stock, so would the generic be okay?Lamotrigine is already the generic form of the drug Lamictal. (00:28:23)

She-Hulk picture

Just Jen - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Jen is at the cash bar and keeps putting money down, it's the same shot used multiple times since it's the same serial number on the $5. And in one shot they flipped the image to make it look different (you can see the "5" is a reverse image).

Tokyo Vice picture

Show generally

Factual error: Jake and Miyamoto go to an establishment where there are girls dancing on stage. The girls are first dancing to "Motivation" by Kelly Rowland, released in 2011, and "Aly Walk With Me" by The Raveonettes, released in 2007. But, this scene takes place in 1999.

Please Don't Go - S1-E2

Deliberate mistake: When the young kid breaks out of Jeff's apartment, the ladies freak out that he's naked, when he's wearing black underwear. And then shortly after they shriek to police that he was buck naked when he wasn't.

The Sandman picture

A Hope in Hell - S1-E4

Plot hole: The powerful 'amulet of protection' makes the bullets strike the shooters instead of John. Clearly it works not just against magic and other ethereal threats, but also against physical attacks. So why does he almost get knocked over by a car? True, he isn't seriously injured, but he was thrown to the ground. The amulet should have pulverised that car or bounced it at least two blocks away.

The Lincoln Lawyer picture

Bent - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: They are driving down the freeway when a shot reveals that the check engine light is on and it also looks as if the 'door open' warning light is illuminated. The latter is probably because the film crew have the rear door open for filming. (00:23:47)

Sherwood picture

Show generally

Factual error: The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has red fabric within the crowns on his rank insignia. This would be correct for most British police forces, but the Metropolitan Police uses blue fabric instead.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The gas station scene where Kliner Jr. is leaning against Roscoe's truck. It starts as the passenger side, then cuts to him moving away, and she enters the drivers' side.

The Midnight Club picture

The Final Chapter - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Ilonka is speaking with her father about going to Brightcliff Hospice, in a shot where the camera is behind her, she says "Lots of foster kids. I mean, kids on their own" and the line appears to sync with her mouth perfectly. But immediately after finishing that line, she starts saying "It's a place for teenagers to transition on their own terms", and her mouth doesn't appear to sync up with the audio at all. (00:12:50)
