Burn Notice
Burn Notice mistake picture

Hard Bargain - S1-E9

Other mistake: When one of the kidnappers knocks on Michael's door, it shows him undoing a sliding barrel bolt before opening it, but the bolt does not have anything it slides into on the door frame rendering it pointless, especially as the door opens inwards. (00:30:20)

A Dark Road - S3-E10

Other mistake: In this episode, Michael, Fiona and Sam are boxing in the bad guy's Corvette, trying to make him crash. Despite repeated hits to the side and back of the Corvette, just before the Corvette crashes, there is no visible damage on the bad guy's car.

Old Friends - S1-E3

Other mistake: This Jan Haseck assassin, who has either multiple allergies or else one allergy to a very common substance (peanuts), could never do any espionage work, as it would make him too vulnerable.


End Run - S3-E3

Audio problem: When Michael is forced to do "errands" for Brennen, they stop by Jonathan Carver's house to get numbers from him for a voice key. The code played back at the facility is 71348. He says "3" in a medium pitch (tone) at the house, but it is high pitched when played back at the facility; he says "8" in a medium pitch, and it's also high pitched later. And finally he says "9" in a low pitch and it's played back medium pitch. Also very obvious is the fact that Jonathan never says "1" or "7."

Trivia: At the beginning of every show you'll see an on-screen credit for Consulting Producer Michael Wilson. Not only is this the name upon which the name Michael Westen was based, this person is a real former spy that was burned and helps keep the information and stories in the show accurate.

Season 7 generally

Question: How do Jesse and Sam intend to continue as P.Is, when their faces were broadcast over the state news? Undercover/stealth work is torpedoed by that.


Chosen answer: They could wear disguises to hide their appearance.
