5 factual errors in season 2 - chronological order

(9 votes)

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)

Never Say Die - S2-E2

Factual error: Jason's wife Alana tells Jason she going to grab H.E.B.'s finest bottle of $12 red, a rotisserie chicken and beer. H.E.B is a Texas grocery store, and the show is set in Virginia Beach, VA, Virginia doesn't have H.E.B. Stores. (00:39:03)

The Worst of Conditions - S2-E3

Factual error: The Seal team is heading up the stairs and a terrorist pokes his head out, and he gets shot 4 times with 5.56 rounds. He's dead, but he manages to exhale a grunt and as he's falling down the middle opening of the stairwell, and he's screening "ahhhhhhhh." This show and many like it have found a need for dead guys to exhale grunts or screams. When somebody is killed their brain shuts down. There's no noise being made by the body unless it's the body itself falling like a sack of potatoes. (00:41:00)

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.

Medicate and Isolate - S2-E19

Factual error: One of the Seals is donning a night vision device, and he looks through his Eotech Exps optic and the dot appears red. That is incorrect a holographic sight or a red dot through night vision appears as a dot, there is no red color through night vision. Soldiers rely on their AN/PEQ-15 ATPIAL laser for targeting when they use night vision. (00:23:30 - 00:24:00)

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)

Season 2 generally

Question: This season has added the odd effect of a large puff of red smoke/dust whenever someone is shot. It is unrealistic and distracting. Wondering if anyone knows the reason for this change.

Answer: Depending on caliber the body does spray blood from .308 and up.

Answer: Only because it looks cool on screen.
