Andy and Helen Get Married - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: A shot shows the interior of the church where Andy Taylor and Helen Crump will be wed. Shrubs and trees are visible outside the church entrance but they are obviously just a painted backdrop. As people enter the church, they cast shadows on the backdrop.

Mistakes

Sam Jones' son, Mike, tells Aunt Bee that the farmhouse has been in their family for 150 years. While showing Aunt Bee a photo album, he points to a photo and says, "That's my great-great-grandfather who started this farm." Pointing to a woman in the same photo, Mike says, "That's my great-grandmother. She lives in Philadelphia." It is very unlikely that the daughter of a man who had started a farm 150 years earlier would still be alive. Assuming the man started the farm when he was in his 20s, he would have had to father a child when he was in his 70s and she would now have to be in her 100s.
