Manhattan

Season 2 generally

Character mistake: Dr. Winter as a private in the Army says he'll probably 'go to the brig' for what he is doing. Brig is a Navy term, stockade is the Army term for jail.

Factual error: In the opening sequence, Dr Frank Winter is hitting golf balls in the desert while a radio announcer is reading off names of Americans killed in action. One name is identified by the rank of "Lance Corporal," which the US Marine Corps first adopted in 1958, long after the war. Several minutes later, Dr Winter dresses down an Army MP, referring to him as "Sergeant First Class." During WW2, that rank was actually "Technical Sergeant."
