Distant Drums

Revealing mistake: When Captain Quincy Wyatt interrogates a captive Seminole Native American by threatening him with a poisonous snake, the native is safe because there is a protective piece of glass between him and the snake. The snake's reflection is quite obvious on the glass panel. (01:14:40)


Continuity mistake: Lt. Richard Tufts arrived at Capt. Quincy Wyatt's camp. A child walks up to him and starts checking his cavalry sword out. The position of the kid's hands keep changing between shots, and when Monk tells him he's the son of the captain, Tufts' hand is suddenly on the handle of the saber. (00:07:10)
