Eureka

Clash of the Titans - S4-E17

New this month Character mistake: Dr. Warren Hughes calls Allison the head of GD, but Fargo is the head of GD in this timeline. (00:25:54)

What Goes Around, Comes Around - S3-E18

Plot hole: Tess sends Jack an airline ticket to visit her in Australia. The ticket reads 'From: Eureka, Oregon, To: Sydney Australia.' Seems odd that a commercial carrier would have a terminal in the most secret town in America. Eureka is a town created by the US government for its top scientists to experiment with new technologies. It is made nearly invisible from the outside by giant holograms. Very few non-residents even know of its existence.

Grumpy Scot

Primal - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Series 1, Episode 9: Primal. As Carter and Taggart are crawling through the access tunnel, the torch attached to the side of Taggart's goggles is pointing downwards, below his line of vision as established by the lenses on the front. As the shot changes to a close-up on Taggart, the torch is now pointing forwards, aligned with the lenses. (00:13:50)

Founder's Day - S4-E1

Factual error: At the dance in 1947, a US flag with 50 stars is visible.

This One Time at Space Camp... - S4-E18

Plot hole: When Dr. Hughes is racing to save Allison when he thinks he is Carter from the events that happened in "I'll be seeing you" Henry says he is racing for a cliff, and that the cabin was just a hologram. But in the episode the Cliff was the hologram disguising the cabin. Henry even commented in that episode that he did not remember a cliff being there.

In Too Deep - S5-E8

Plot hole: Carter is apparently just learning about Feynman's Day, which Allison explains as "Eureka's version of April Fool's Day." It's highly improbable that Carter could have lived in Eureka for five years and still be oblivious of this, especially given all of the hijinks that happen.

Phased and Confused - S3-E6

Other mistake: Captain Eureka losing his finger makes absolutely no sense. He doesn't cry out in pain, there's no blood, and where the finger ended up is completely illogical. The finger didn't just sever on its own; it's shown that severing only occurs when passing through objects. Captain Eureka goes through a wall that is a good fifteen feet away from where the finger is discovered, and it is implausible to think it could have rolled there on its own.

Invincible - S1-E5

Factual error: Henry Deacon says people only use 10% of their brain at any one time. That's complete garbage - at times we may use quite a small part of our brains, other times the whole brain lights up with activity. The "10%" myth has absolutely no basis in fact - no-one even seems to know where this figure came from! Given the intelligence of Eureka's residents, Henry (and indeed others in the room) would know this.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Cobb loses his leg, Allison looks down and we see his leg back from the edge of the hole. The camera moves and we see his leg right next to the hole.

One Giant Leap... - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Henry stops the countdown to launch, the time stops at 5 hours 13 minutes and 32 seconds. Later after the events at Cafe Diem the clock is stopped at 5 hours 13 minutes and 11 seconds.

One Small Step... - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: When Andy pushes Jack out of the way when the F.T.L. is malfunctioning he is pushed into 2 stacks of crates, they are seen all falling away from him. The next shot of him he is just falling against the crates and one of them falls on him instead of away from him and the other stack stays where it is.

Founder's Day - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the scene where Dr. Grant gives Jack the crank for the satellite dish, Henry turns his hat around so it is backwards, later on in the scene it is now facing forward, then is backward again, then at the end of the scene he is seen facing it forward.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is using the mustard to find Martha, Vincent ducks behind the counter. The shot changes to show just Vincent and he is shown ducking down again.
