White Justice - S5-E3

Other mistake: The "Construction Manager" being the boss of three men makes $125 a month, but the 3 of them make $15 a day working, which is $150 a month. How can the boss make $25 a month less? Even if the three did not work on Sundays... they would still make the same or more than their boss... "Three good men? Them plus some Jakes, yeah. Next time you want a favor, spare me the song and dance, Mr. Strobridge. (Bangs table) They're capable. They are dead weight. Expensive dead weight, at a time when I need all of my resources focused on breaking through that tunnel. And Jim, Charlie Crocker found you five years ago. You were digging ditches in San Jose for pennies a day, and you make $125 a month as construction manager for the greatest enterprise in the history of America. All I'm saying is, $15 a day means a whole lot more to those men than it does to this enterprise." (00:14:30 - 00:15:00)

Suggested correction: The three men make five dollars a day each for a total of fifteen dollars the railroad has to pay.

Derailed - S1-E8

Factual error: When the whore is talking to Lily, she says "The first thing she should do (in her new tent) is to get the carpenter to lay some boards, or she will be saying hello to Mr. Trench Foot", referring to the medical issue related to feet in wet and unsanitary conditions. This disease of the feet was not referred to as this until World War One. (00:23:10)
