Project Blue Book

Abduction - S1-E9

Other mistake: A man that has just been hypnotized forces his wife to remove a metallic quarter-sized object from the back of his neck. The man had been suffering from health problems ever since an alleged alien abduction. He stated that he had been seen by many doctors but none could figure out what was wrong. A quarter-sized metallic object beneath the skin of the back of his neck protruding as a bump, and no doctor ever saw it? Highly improbable. (00:31:20)

The Green Fireballs - S1-E6

Other mistake: A woman drops a camera and retrieves it after talking to two people. She then takes 15 steps to get back to where she was on a level path. If you drop a camera on a level path it will not roll that distance unless it is thrown down the path. (00:12:20)


The Flatwoods Monster - S1-E2

Other mistake: The West Virginia News publishes a headline about the Flatwood Monster dated October 18, 1952. The incident took place on September 12, which was 36 days before. It does not make sense that a newspaper would print a headline story 36 days after it happened. (00:25:20)


Show generally

Factual error: Moving vehicles with officers inside are not saluted except when the car is an official one displaying the flag of a general officer. (00:13:55)

Hopkinsville - S2-E4

Trivia: If you look closely, that Bourbon that Captain Quinn is drinking is called "Ruppelt Bourbon", a nod to the real-life Captain Ed Ruppelt, the first Director of Project Blue Book, and who the character of Captain Quinn is partially based. Thanks to David O'Leary for the information. (00:18:20)
