Prison Break

End of the Tunnel - S1-E13

Other mistake: When Michael climbs up the rope to get to the room below the infirmary, the rope is hanging from the manhole cover, but he still manages to lift the cover whilst hanging from it. In the next shot where he looks down the manhole, its clear that there is nothing other than the rope he could have held on to while lifting the cover. An impressive accomplishment, defying the laws of gravity. (00:38:00)

Suggested correction: I disagree, in the earlier episode where Michael actually climbs out of the water and attaches the rope, when climbing up through the manhole cover he uses a lip to support himself first.

Yes but the point of the mistake is that Michael is solely hanging from a rope that is attached to the man hole cover. While his weight is on the rope, he managed to lift the manhole cover. The lip mentioned is created when the cover is lifted.

Scylla - S4-E1

Other mistake: Michael goes to Fox River in April. Maricruz gets pregnant in the same month. In mid-June, when Michael get arrested in Panama, she's still pregnant. That's 2 months. He was in there for about 2 weeks, due to his deal with the company. Therefore, he would have escaped Sona at the end of June or the start of July. The start of Season 4 is set 3 weeks after the escape from Sona, so Maricruz should be 3 months pregnant, but gives birth at the start of season 4, meaning that the baby is 6 months early but looks very healthy.

Show generally

Other mistake: If the show takes place in May, when Lincoln is scheduled to be executed, why is it snowing?

Suggested correction: It does occasionally snow in such months. There is no rule about weather being certain. It's just what we consider usual for each season, e.g. winter = cold. Characters even comment on very "variable" weather in state.

Buried - S2-E7

Other mistake: When Sara's dad is found dead, Sarah pulled him, so his body dropped on the floor with his key, but this key is different from the other square key that they used it to open his private locker. (00:16:30)

And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Other mistake: In the first couple of minutes, Michael is sitting on the bed. When he leans forward, you can see his back, but no tattoos. (00:01:00)

Allen - S1-E2

Other mistake: When T-bag catches Michael in his cell looking for the Allen key, he says, 'What are you doing in my cell?' but he doesn't have his usual southern accent. (00:20:00)

Show generally

Other mistake: Between season 1 and 2 the opening there is a shot just as Dominic Purell's name comes up that features a blueprint. On the blue print, there are 2 distances visible - 7' 15" and and 23' 15." There are only 12" in a foot. (00:04:00)

Suggested correction: That happens as he is put on the couch unfortunately I've seen enough people passed out through drink and or drugs that when moved do move their arms or legs slightly.

Killing Your Number - S4-E22

Other mistake: While Paul Kellerman talks to Lincoln about Sofia and LJ, Dominic Purcell has a tattoo on his left forearm saying "j.c. 1950-2008", which should have been hidden as season 4 is set in 2005. (00:40:57)

Rendezvous - S2-E10

Other mistake: Sara sprints the short distance to Mahone's car. Halfway through her sprint the camera changes to Michael for 23 seconds, then back to Sarah, who has covered less than 10m in that time. (00:26:30)

Chicago - S2-E16

And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Quinn falls in the well, he falls through and subsequently destroys the well cover. At the end of the episode when the Secret Service boys show up, an undamaged cover is lying next to the well, which Kellerman uses to cover it up. (00:29:30 - 00:38:30)

Sona - S2-E22

Question: Bill Kim called the police, he said that. Why would he do that, because it was obvious he was going to kill Linc. It makes no sense.

mixone1995

Answer: I don't think he wanted to kill him, I think the plan was to get Linc and Michael into Sona so they could break out James Whistler.
