SEAL Team

Fracture - S2-E1

Factual error: The briefer on the oil platform mission says the platform is 12 stories, and 80 million square feet. Doing the math, that makes it half a mile per side if completely square. It is nowhere near that size as shown. The largest oil rig in the world - Berkut in Russia's Far East - has a combined deck area of only 342,000 square feet. (00:13:35)

Things Not Seen - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Six people jump out of a C-17 and Blackburn and Mandy are aboard the aircraft. The next shot shows the SEAL team in the air with parachutes. Then the scene goes to an air base in Incirlik, Turkey. Blackburn and Mandy are there. How did that airplane get from 200 miles inside Syria to a Turkish airbase before the SEAL team even hit the ground? (00:17:00)

Time to Shine - S2-E13

Factual error: The heart cannot be restarted using a defibrillator, in fact, a defibrillator stops a fibrillating heart. The only way to restart it is chest compression.

Suggested correction: CPR cannot restart a heart. See below: "BE AWARE Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) will not restart a heart in sudden cardiac arrest. CPR is just a temporary measure used to continue a minimal supply of oxygen to the brain and other organs. When someone is in sudden cardiac arrest, defibrillation is the only way to re-establish a regular heartbeat." From https://www.aedauthority.com/cardiac-arrest/.

Just to be clear, "sudden cardiac arrest" occurs when the heart fibrillates, which is not the same as a stopped heart.

Suggested correction: https://www.lhsc.on.ca/critical-care-trauma-centre/critical-care-trauma-centre-263 "This procedure is called Defibrillation. Sometimes, if the heart is stopped completely, the heart will restart itself within a few seconds and return to a normal electrical pattern."

Did you even bother to read the article you posted? It says if the heart stops (cardiac arrest), the first thing to do is chest compressions. The heart is then monitored to determine what step to take next. The line you quoted is regarding stopping the heart deliberately with defibrillation in hopes it will restart properly. It's not saying that a heart that under went cardiac arrest will just start up on its own, which is what the mistake is pointing out. (Plus, medical personnel do chest compressions after defibrillation).

Things Not Seen - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Six people are lined up to jump out of a C-17. Two people jump out. In the next shot there are still six people lined up to jump. (00:16:20)

The Cost of Doing Business - S1-E22

Factual error: A CH-47D Chinook helicopter is shown on the tarmac with N160BE in large white letters. This is a civilian registration number, not one for a military aircraft. A check with the FAA shows it is registered to Unical Aviation at City of Industry, California. (00:26:00)

All Along the Watchtower: Part 2 - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The team and the hostages escape from the compound in an SUV and a school bus with the SUV in the lead. They are being pursued by a small truck with a mounted machine gun which starts firing on the school bus. They switch positions, moving the SUV behind the bus so that they can protect the hostages and return fire. The next shot in the command post via a drone shows the original lineup, with the school bus behind the SUV.

Edge of Nowhere - S3-E18

Factual error: A US Navy Lieutenant Commander (Chaplain) is shown wearing a metal chaplain badge on his working uniform. This is not authorized. Working uniforms require cloth badges. (00:09:40)

The Worst of Conditions - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: As the team drives through Mumbai heading down the tunnel you can see the camera man for a brief moment behind the gunner atop the truck.

Unbecoming an Officer - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Jason is in bed with his girlfriend lying on opposite ends of the bed. The girlfriend's feet are exposed. When the camera pans up to her face and back down, she only has one foot exposed. (00:02:00)

Snag.1

Welcome to the Refuge - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: A taxi is pursuing a Mercedes sedan. At one point they collide - taxi left side and Mercedes right side. Later in the chase, the scrapes and tire marks on the Mercedes are on its left side instead of its right. (00:08:37 - 00:09:39)

Things Not Seen - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: In the first scene an armored vehicle is approaching with a small slit for the driver to see. In other scenes the driver has a much bigger window. (00:25:55)

Things Not Seen - S2-E12

Other mistake: Sonny discovers Lisa's training manual, and it says "Officer Candidates School." It should be "Officer Candidate School." It even says so on the seal right there on the same cover. (00:11:20)

Prisoner's Dilemma - S2-E10

Character mistake: The team is using names of cities in Puerto Rico to show progress on their mission. Condado and Arecibo are misspelled. (00:04:00)

Season 2 generally

Factual error: For some reason in the first several episodes of the second season, a burst of red mist is added whenever an enemy is shot by the SEALs. The human body does not produce a mist of blood when hit by a projectile.

Suggested correction: "If the object impacts liquid blood, the larger surface area will collect more blood, producing drops of varying sizes. Gunshot injuries -‐ mist-‐like spatter caused by bullets entering and exiting the body. When blood is impacted, droplets are dispersed through the air." From http://www.forensicsciencesimplified.org/blood/BloodstainPatterns.pdf.

Ignore and Override - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Jason and the team track the bomber to his mansion and isolate him in his hiding spot. Jason opens the door outward (toward him). In the next scene when the team streams into the room the door is open inward.
