Lost

A Tale of Two Cities - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: Season 3, episode 1, "A Tale of Two Cities.": In the scene where Ben/Henry is presenting a breakfast table to Kate, he mentions coffee which we can see is in a French press. Ben/Henry "finishes" the coffee by pushing down on the plunger of the french press, but uses only one finger with barely any pressure. In reality, a french press takes a significant amount of pressure to get the plunger from top to bottom, more than could be generated by just one finger. Additionally, we can see that the mesh-screen component of the French press stays at the top, rather than plunging down, which it should in order to filter out the grounds.

[Jack begins to laugh.]
Benjamin Linus: What?
Jack Shepard: [Still laughing.] If you wanted me to believe that, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
