It Takes One to Know One - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: While he hangs from the ceiling over the jewels, Al's trapeze is spinning slowly. But when the shot cuts to a close-up, you can tell from the stationary background that the trapeze is now perfectly still. In the next full shot, though, it's spinning again. (00:39:00)

Noah Bain: Oh, uh, look, Al, I'm not asking you to spy. I'm just asking you to steal.
Alexander Mundy: Let me get this straight: you want me to steal?



Gino commits a murder using a six-shooter with a silencer attached, and his shot doesn't make any noise. But it should have. Though it's a long-standing Hollywood cliché, a revolver with a silencer wouldn't be silent at all. Unlike automatic weapons, revolvers are open-chambered, which allows sound to escape. They can't be muffled with a silencer.
