Continuity mistake: When Will says "Sir." to Mr Gilbert in the pub (after Gilbert says "I'll make sure you get another badge for this"), a man in grey trousers and a blue jacket can be seen standing inside the pub at the top left of the screen. Not only is everyone supposed to have left the pub at this point, but he wasn't visible in the previous identical shot of Will. (00:19:51)

Other mistake: Private Pyle seems to be just as large in the bathroom scene with Hartman as he is in the Jelly Donut scene. In reality, it's just the same actor, but in the film's plot it implies he went through 12-22 weeks of boot camp under Hartman without ever losing any weight, even though Hartman was specifically trying to get him to.

Character mistake: When Will tries to quote the law to the barman, he states that the group must be "accompanied by an adult" in order to drink alcohol with food. However, since he just served Jay, he believed Jay was an adult; and Jay is accompanying the group. Both Will and tha bartender miss this.

Continuity mistake: When the girls take Sheldon out dancing, he mentions that he considers himself a proficient dancer due to his Cotillion training when he was a boy. But in S1E7 The Dumpling Paradox, when Leonard suggests that they could have gone dancing with the girls, Sheldon said that nobody in the group - including him - could dance.
Trivia: If you rewire the Wall of Light at the front of the Dunwall Tower, and then go to the Broadcast Station and expose the Lord Regent's plan, he'll be arrested. The guards will try to march him out of the Tower - and will send him through the rewired Wall, which will electrocute him, so you'll get an "Assassinated Lord Regent!" notification without actually doing anything.

Continuity mistake: The timing throughout this episode is bizarre. The boys leave their town in broad daylight, but by the time they get to London, it's dark. As they leave, Will's VO says they were in the club for 25 minutes, and Simon then says it's 1am, so they would have entered the club at 12:30am. Earlier, Simon said they had spent an hour looking for a parking space, so they started searching at 11:30pm. So how could they take so long to drive into London that it was broad light when they left but 11:30pm by the time they arrived? Even if they were lost in London for several hours, it would have gotten dark while they were lost, not been dark when they already arrived. This is even stranger if you consider that in the books and backstory, the boys' school is in a London suburb.

Revealing mistake: Sheldon's laptop has gone through several strange transformations throughout the series, but in this episode it takes the biscuit - it appears to be a Dell XPS with the back covered up, but the shot of Sheldon chatting only to Amy shows a Mac keyboard, with the laptop running OS X.

Plot hole: Jay is thrown out of the hotel pool for throwing a young boy into the pool, and Will is thrown out for insulting the girl in a wheelchair. At this time, Simon was in the cafe, nowhere near the other boys and not involved in any of these. So why would he be thrown out, too? How would the employee who grabs him even know they were together?

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer stands up from underneath the table, just before he says, "Thanks for your support" to Lister, listen very carefully and you can hear the stunt director saying "Action!" backwards. This shot was the splice point between the reversed and the regular footage. (I know this mistake is listed as being in the 'backwards version' on the DVD, but it is in the regular broadcast version too - you just have to listen harder for it.)

Continuity mistake: When Mr Bean finds Hubert's hat lying on his shelf beside the clock, he puts it in front of the clock to cover the clock up. But when Hubert's silhouette is seen at the end of the show, it shows him lifting his hat from the position it was originally in - beside the clock.

Question: When Marvin is left behind in the Disaster Area ship as the others teleport away, he says, "I'm so intelligent I've probably got time to go through the five." before he is cut off. Is there anything in the books or rest of the series which suggests what we was about to say?

Question: When the people in the military base channel the All Spark to create a Transformer, it is evil and tries to shoot them; and the Transformers that Sam creates from machines in the city by accident also appear to attack the humans around them. If the All Spark can only create evil Transformers then where did the good ones come from?
