Back with a Bang - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: In the parking lot shot, one patron of the Leisure Center warns an arriving patron that Brittas is back, prompting the arriving person to reverse their car out of the parking space. However, note the arriving patron's hands - his car was already in reverse before he was spoken to. (00:12:15)

Safety First - S2-E6

Factual error: When Helen tells Laura she's trying to quit all the pills that she takes to deal with Gordon, she starts listing them off. "The Valium, the Diazepam, the Librium..." Valium and Diazepam are the same thing. (Valium's the brand, Diazepam's the generic). (00:08:20)

Suggested correction: And Helen might not know that and think they are different pills.

Anyone on those pills knows exactly what they are.

Usually true in real life but this show exaggerates things for comedy. The writers probably genuinely made the mistake but it is still plausible that Helen is that messed up.

If you're on these meds, you know this stuff. Like how people on Percocet know that its generic is Oxycodone.

Gavin Featherly: I've just seen Larry Whittaker. He says he's going to kill Brittas.
Tim Whistler: I've always liked Larry.
