Factual error: Bozer and for that matter I would assume all of the team went to a spycraft academy. A basic subject in any of such academies is surveillance, including proper techniques to follow and stake out someone. Bozer being so inept at tracking MacGyver's father is inconceivable given their training.toroscan
Factual error: All the information regarding Germany and there train system are wrong. All the fast trains (InterCity Express) in Germany are electrified and therefore no-one could land on the top of the train with a helicopter. Also the trains have a completely different design and the train station in Berlin and Frankfurt have a completely different look.
Plot hole: The team is trying to recreate the movements of a murdered seed vault employee by using his phone's geolocation attributes (compass, accelerometer, altimeter, etc). They are trying to backtrack from the place they found the murdered employee to where he first surprised his killer. They backtrack using the data from the employee's phone, and there is another set of data shown on the computer. But they only have one phone's data to work with. Where did the data presumably from the killer's phone come from? (00:12:50)toroscan
Factual error: MacGyver attaches a hose from a car gasoline filler port to the jet engine from a crashed plane. He uses a makeshift lever and the engine ignites. 1. A crashed jet engine has an astronomically low chance of working. 2. A jet engine runs on essentially refined kerosene with some additives. Automotive fuel would be useless. 3. The hose used to "provide fuel to the engine" is not siphoned to provide a usable flow of gasoline. 4. The braided wire hose is quite a long piece. It just happened to be lying there completely free of any holding clamps or terminations? How would just one piece of a long hose become free of the airplane? 5. The engine is not attached to anything, but the thrust of the lit engine does not move it one inch. 6. Even after being lit, it does not set fire to anything in spite of being in the middle of a lot of combustible material. (00:13:15)toroscan
Continuity mistake: In the first scene a pot on the stove has boiled over, spilling down the sides. In the next scene, the pot is about 3/4 inches from the top with no spillage. In the succeeding scene, it is once again overflowed and spilling down the sides. (00:03:05)toroscan
Factual error: Scenes are in Puerto Rico, but the little girl looks Mexican and speaks with a Mexican accent. The guitarist was playing Cuban songs. And building codes in PR require concrete and concrete block structures for new construction, not wood, tar paper, and shingles. Wrong patrol cars, too. Real ones actually say "San Juan Police Department", not San Juan Policia. And they only use blue lights, never red. SWAT teams are part of the State Police, not SJPD, and legitimate trucks say "Special Weapons and Tactics" across the top and then POLICIA below.toroscan
