Show generally

Factual error: There is no prison in the United States that does not strictly segregate Death Row prisoners. They are never, ever allowed contact with the general prison population.

Show generally

Factual error: When in New Mexico, all the vehicles have license plates on the front. New Mexico only issues one plate, for the rear of the vehicle. Also, at least one of the plates has a Q in the serial. New Mexico only uses Q's on vanity plates.

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.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When Brad threatens his ex-cop friend Gary on the phone while leaving a message for him, he says "you better get down your knees and pray to God that I don't find you". Later in the court the recording is "you better get down your knees and pray to God that I never find you".

Show generally

Audio problem: The episode where Michael and Alex play chicken with their cars, when returning to the road after they scrape cars, there are sound effects of peeling tires. You can't squeal tires on dirt.


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)

Question: How does Don Self know that Miriam should work at Gate when nobody knew about the location of Scylla? Or Whistler wanting to work there?

Answer: Don Self actually worked with Whistler before he died. And Whistler with the bird book actually knew where Scylla was.

Answer: Because Miriam was an agent.

But that still doesn't make sense because nobody knew where Scylla was.
