One Step Too Many - S2-E6

Factual error: The General wants to do his interview by the TV so he can watch March Madness at the same time. When the interview is about to begin, it shows a Kentucky game being played on Kentucky's home court. Teams cannot play on their own court during the NCAA Tournament. (00:40:50)

5/1 - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The stock footage of the airplane that Don, Sloan and Elliot are on is of a Boeing 747, a very large widebody plane. However, the internal shots of the plane suggest that it is actually a much smaller narrow body plane. (00:13:55)

Contempt - S3-E4

Audio problem: In the Juilliard scene, the vocalist is singing the Schubert Ave Maria but the music on the piano is the other famous Ave Maria, the one set to music by J. S. Bach.

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Most of what Will says about the Challenger's O-rings is wrong. First of all, he says they are meant to keep hydrogen from leaking out of the SRB. SRB stands for Solid Rocket Booster, meaning they use solid fuel, not hydrogen. The hydrogen was in the external fuel tank. Second, the O-rings were tested for cold, and NASA engineers recommended against launching that day, with one of them even refusing to sign off on the paperwork if the launch was to go forward. NASA overruled them and went ahead with the launch anyway, with all the disastrous consequences that ensued.
