One Armed Bandits - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The chase with Daisy in Rosco's squad car ends with a piano slamming into the car. When the truck hauling it comes to a stop, there's a reaction shot of Daisy at the wheel of the squad car. In the next shot, when the piano hits it, the car is empty. A second later, Rosco gets out of the truck and Daisy is back in the driver's seat. (00:30:00)

Repo Men - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the first scene when Bo and Luke are practicing with the General Lee, you see Bo using the clutch, but in the next shot both hands are on the wheel. He didn't have any time to move his hands in about a milisecond.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: After picking up Marlowe, the deputy with them mentions the car following them. They're out in the wide open area, but the car in the mirror is in the downtown area. Then after a quick cut, they're in the downtown area of Springville again.

Swamp Molly - S1-E6

Audio problem: In Hogg's office in the Boar's Nest, after Roscoe tells of the activities, Boss goes to put the needle back on the record. Trouble is, the record doesn't move until Boss turns it, but the music started before the record moved.

Movie Nut

Daisy's Song - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the close up shots of the General during the junkyard chase, Daisy is sitting between the boys. In the shots from the car being chased, she appears to be in the back seat, looking over Luke's left shoulder.

Movie Nut

Swamp Molly - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When the truck goes into the water, you can see the driver was either a stunt driver or a dummy. Also, you can see the top of the truck just under the surface of the water, suggesting it was on the bottom. A few seconds later, and all you can see are bubbles.

Movie Nut

Route 7-11 - S1-E12

Character mistake: In this episode, they constantly refer to the semi as an eighteen wheeler. The tractor would have tandem (two) rear axles with dual tires. This one has only one rear axle on the tractor. Added up, the rig only has fourteen wheels.

Route 7-11 - S1-E12

Other mistake: In the opening sequence, there's a shot from on top of the General Lee. As they do a one-eighty, you can see skid marks on the road where they have done other turns.

Money to Burn - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When the hearse is pulled up to the coffin works, the driver is left alone to look at his map. If you look to his left, you can see the reflection of the lighting rig.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The boys already had dynamite arrows made up. When they go to stop Marlowe's car, Luke says "Twenty-five percent charge ought to do it." They weren't carrying any extra dynamite, and weren't carrying the bags that held the bows where they would have had the extra charges.

Deputy Dukes - S1-E10

Factual error: While the boys are chasing Marlowe in town after he takes Price's gun, he fires at them. He fires eight shots out of a six shooter without reloading. Also, Luke puts an arrow into the car to stop Marlowe, and steam comes out. But the arrow is too far back to have hit the radiator, and it only went in about an inch, far too high to have even touched the radiator.

Deputy Enos Strate: Possum on a gumbush.
