A Kind of a Stopwatch - S5-E4

Factual error: When McNulty clicks his stopwatch the helicopter is shown frozen in flight but the blades are shown as a blur, they should be just as much in focus as the rest of the helicopter.

Continuity mistake: After McNulty freezes the office, a co-worker is getting water from a faucet, and the water is frozen in motion, but right before McNulty unfreezes the office, a female co-worker is in the background at the faucet with no water coming out of the faucet.


Come Wander with Me - S5-E34

Trivia: Producer William Froug rejected an extremely nervous young singer/actress auditioning for the part of Mary Rachel, and recalls thinking that "I'll probably kick myself.

Answer: #4: That he did personally murder at least 14 (Jews). The last word I couldn't quite hear because of the screams, but I hear an "-oz" sound at the end, so it's an educated guess. #5: That he did sign and put into effect specific orders calling for the gassing and cremating of one million human beings.
