Shogun

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When Blackthorne tries to open the door in order to leave the room he woke up in, his hand tears the paper wall. The damage to the paper then changes between shots. (00:11:20)

Wanderer

Show generally

Factual error: When they first meet, Rodrigues tells Blackthorne that aboard his ship there is plenty of food and grog. The problem is that grog was not "invented" until 1740, when it was introduced into the British Navy by Admiral Edward Vernon, who was nicknamed "Old Grog" because of his habit of wearing a grogram coat.
