Green Acres (1965)

The Price of Apples - S1-E20

Plot hole: Oliver and Lisa are in a truck, taking a load of apples to the Farmers Market in the state capital. Oliver says it's a "15-hour drive." Driving 30 miles an hour, that would be 450 miles. Driving 40 miles an hour, that would be 600 miles. It was never specified where Green Acres is located but only Alaska, Texas and California extend for such a distance north-to-south and/or east-to-west.

Suggested correction: He doesn't say it's a 15-hour drive. He says it's a 15-hour trip, which could mean the drive there and back total 15 hours. Or he could be taking into account all the times they'll be stopping and traffic. Not to mention that the driving distance between two cities is always greater than as the crow flies. Two cities might be 100 miles apart but the drive may end up being 150 miles.

Factual error: "The Waltons Homecoming" is a remake of the 1971 TV-movie that led to the 1972-81 television series "The Waltons." In one scene, John-Boy has written a story for The Boston Arts Scholarship Competition. He addressed the envelope to "1815 Redwood St, Boston MA 02122." The movie is set in 1933. The Postal Service did not introduce ZIP codes and two-letter state abbreviations until 1963.

Columbo (1971)

Other mistake: Chico sells Groucho a paper with the name of a horse who is sure to win. It says "ZVBXRPL." Chico explains that the name is in code and then sells Groucho a code book. Groucho looks up the name and says "ZVBXRPL, page 34" but he is looking at a right-hand page. Page 34 would be a left-hand page.
