Episode #1.15 - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Miles jumps off the ferry to swim ashore, the camera view is from the ferry: he jumps into quiet, fairly level water, yet the camera recedes from him (he jumped off the back of the boat as the camera continues moving with the boat). The angle changes and we see the wake of the boat - but it's not what he jumped into.

Factual error: When Rich and Laura are searching for drug information from the 1960s, they visit the US Patent Office website; under the heading "SSRIs", is displayed "Selecttive Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors" - with the double-t spelling error. (00:15:25)

Episode #1.13 - S1-E13

Factual error: When Rich and Laura are checking the US Patent Office records for the Nortide drug, the date of the patent is shown as "December 22th, 1963." The form is a modern, barcoded typed document, not a hand-written or typed one, and supposedly a formal US government document, so the '22th' should not have happened. (00:15:45)
