Prison Break

Subdivision - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Season 2, episode 6. While the guys are digging in the garage, Michael tells Sucre about the website they can use, as C-Note walks in. He closes the door behind him, but misses the catch, and you can see the door start to swing open again behind him as he walks further into the room. Cut to Lincoln for a second, then to a wide shot, and the door is now firmly closed.

Bolshoi Booze - S2-E11

Factual error: Linc arrives at the 'Bolshoi Booze' location at 17:45. It is an 8 hour drive from Trinidad Colorado to that location, which is right on the Texas - New Mexico border. That means that they would have had to have left at 09:45 that morning. But they don't appear to have stayed a night at Linc's father's place - and in none of the other plot lines has it been night. They couldn't have covered that ground in the time span of the plot.

Bad Blood - S2-E17
