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

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


Time to Shine - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Clay usually carries the H&K416 with the 14.5" barrel with the addition of a Surefire suppressor and a variable optic scope, whereas the rest of the team caries the more compact 10.4" barrel with Surefire suppressors and Eotech optics. Sometimes Clay carries the M110 Sniper, all their gear changes up depending on mission. On this mission Clay is with the 14.5" with scope and later when he exits the sub tube he hands the sub crewman a 10.4" with Eoetch. They didn't switch weapons underwater. (00:00:45 - 00:06:00)

Credible Threat - S1-E18

Question: It shows the tier 1 operators taking the congressman and other officials through the hospital with photographers and film crews everywhere. Aren't tier 1 operators identities supposed to be unknown? Why would they be visible in such a high profile scene?

Answer: They should be wearing balaclavas. They do such operations usually on foreign soil.
