Replacements - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Bull is wounded and crawling through the trench to avoid being run over by the tank, he looks back after the telephone pole comes down and you can see the camera crew in the upper right corner.

Replacements - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In the shot before Buck falls back he fires twice. The first time it's ok, the second time the cocking bolt on the side of his Thompson doesn't move.

Replacements - S1-E4

Other mistake: When Heffron is taking his throw at darts, he states that he needs a "double seven". When he takes the throw, the dart goes into the treble eight (an earlier close-up confirms that the board has the standard Gamlin configuration), yet, from the reaction he gets, he's made the throw he was going for.

Replacements - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In one scene, the barn-like structure ‘petit restaurant' has the words 'hotel' on the left and 'cafe' on the right, but the building gets a grenade to the upper floor to clear the two snipers pinning down Easy Company. After the retreat, the Germans march past and the Hotel/Cafe is fully restored and the window is back in place.

Guarnere: Jesus Christ, we gotta do all this with a C.O. who has his head so far up his fuckin' ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Trivia: In the scene where the Red Devils toast the 101st Airborne, when the camera shows the assembled soldiers you'll see Tom Hanks as one of the Red Devils in a beret at the back left (5 or 6 men in) with his right hand on his hip. His head moves forwards to become obscured behind another soldier. (00:30:30)

Crossroads - S1-E5

Question: How exactly do the M1 Garands work? I noticed that after the clip is emptied a metal type plate comes out the top of the rifle, what is that?

Answer: That actually is the clip. It is loaded into the top of the rifle, and is ejected with the last round. See http://www.wwiitech.net/main/usa/weapons/m1/.
