Snakebite - S3-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Chet, Roy, and Johnny are with the mother and child at the scene of the vehicle accident, the reflections of location set array lights, four side-by-side reflector screens with some crew members holding them and the camera/cameraman are all visible in the window and surface of the funeral home hearse, as it arrives and then pulls to the side of the road.

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the episode, in the closeup shot of Roy, Chet, and Johnny as they're talking about not catching any fish on their trip, there is a chrome spotlight on the roof of the Land Rover, and we can see the reflection of the camera mounted on the vehicle's hood.

Visible crew/equipment: When ready to transport the teenagers from the crash, the bulging outline of the mic transmitter is visible on the back of Roy's shirt, when Roy tells Captain Stanley they're ready to go. The outline of the mic transmitter is visible on the back of Johnny's shirt, when he looks for his HT and is bitten by the rattler.

Revealing mistake: After Gage gets bitten by the rattler, when the driver of Tractor 2 begins ascending the cliff, there is a nice close-up as he passes and this young stuntie is most certainly not the older driver seen in this scene. Not to mention the watchless driver suddenly acquires a black watch and a plastic face shield attached to the helmet.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Chet are at the site of the traffic accident, during this scene the shadows' lengths - from long, to short, back to long, and its directions keep changing drastically. Such as when Chet stands in the middle of the road, looking in the direction of the vehicle with the siren, his long shadow is cast to his left, but the oncoming vehicle also casts a shadow to its left (even though it's heading towards Chet), then in the next shot that vehicle's shadow has moved to its opposite side.

Continuity mistake: At the start, there's a long shot of the Land Rover driving down a long stretch of road towards the camera and then passing it. That road, landscape, and mountains are very distinctive. As Roy, John, and Chet continue talking and driving, when they reach the scene of a traffic accident, Chet sets up a flare behind the Land Rover and another flare behind the pickup truck, then Chet sees a car coming from the direction which the Land Rover was headed. The problem is that the road/landscape/mountains shown earlier in the long shot of the Land Rover, which had been driving from the opposite direction, is the same that's shown here, as Chet tries to stop the car. Then to top it off, when Chet first notices the second car in the distance, it's coming from the opposite direction of the first car, but once again the view is exactly the same.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode, in the closeup shot of Chet, Roy, and Johnny as they're talking about their trip, we can see the Land Rover hood's base plate where the vehicle's spare tire is supposed to be mounted, but the tire isn't there because of the mounted camera facing the actors in the vehicle. In other shots the spare tire is properly mounted on the Land Rover's hood.

Other mistake: After Hector agrees to use Tractor 2 to cut a trail down to the teenagers in the crashed car, Captain Stanley tells Roy and John to get their gear, then says, "Marco, Chet, give them a hand," but subtitles read, "Mark it off, Chet..." Later when they're carrying the teens up, we hear the dispatcher say, "Squad 36, 10-7 to Rampart," but subtitles read "Squad 36, transport to Rampart," and when the dispatcher says, "Repair 2, Engine 163 is requesting tow truck," but subtitles read "Return 2..."

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to the car over the cliff at Bear Mountain, the timeout is 08:12, then when Roy contacts Rampart his watch reads 6:55. When Johnny checks the girl who can't see, his watch reads 12:45, but when Johnny contacts Rampart his watch reads 6:05. Then after the snakebite, when the guys carry Johnny to the back of Engine 51, Johnny's watch reads 10:35.

Revealing mistake: After the snakebite, when the guys carry Johnny and place him at the back of Engine 51, the chrome spotlights are shiny and reflective, but in the closeups the spotlight near Marco has been partially sprayed with a dulling spray, to prevent the camera's reflection.

Continuity mistake: At the scene of the traffic accident, when Johnny tries to calm the woman who cries that she's afraid, it cuts to a shot of Chet as the camera pans to the left, and we see the position of the pickup truck on the road. When they hear the siren of help coming, Chet stands in the road directing the vehicle, and the pickup is not where it was in that earlier shot, it's now much farther down the road.

Continuity mistake: At the start, there's a closeup of Roy, Johnny, and Chet, and it cuts to a long shot of the landscape around them while they're driving, then it cuts back to the closeup. The landscape the Land Rover passed in the long shot is entirely different than in the previous and following closeups.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Chet go to Rampart to visit Johnny on their day off, Dixie tells them that Johnny's in room 205, but when Chet and Roy walk in the number on the door is 230.

Continuity mistake: When Chet flags down the young driver to get help for the traffic accident victims, the driver's side wing mirror is tilted out at a wide angle in the long shot, but in the next closeup the wing mirror has been pushed flat up against the car, so as not to block the actor during the conversation.

Visible crew/equipment: After Roy, Johnny, and Chet find the victims of the vehicle accident, when Johnny checks on the boy's mother, the bulging outline of the mic transmitter is visible on the back, right side of Johnny's red shirt.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny adjusts his IV after the snakebite, he tells Captain Stanley that he's ready to leave, and Chet is not wearing his helmet, but in the next shot as Marco heads for the squad Chet is wearing the helmet.

Continuity mistake: When Johnny is bitten by the rattlesnake he's holding the handie-talkie, but then he drops it and the HT falls to the other side of the car, as he hoists himself up against the car door. However, when he sits down on the ground he is still holding the handie-talkie.
