A Klink, a Bomb and a Short Fuse - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Newkirk comes out of Klink's office with a code book, and passes it to Le Beau, who immediately holds it up and opens it. In the close up, Carter's hands bring up a book with a camera in it, and Le Beau brings the book out from his back and opens it again.

Continuity mistake: From time to time, Hogan's patch (reading COL. R. E. HOGAN) alternates from the lettering being faded, to the lettering being vibrant with the patch looking new.

Hogan's Hofbrau - S1-E13

Other mistake: After talking to the officers in the Höfbräu, the scene shifts to a closed business with Hogan talking to the waitress. As it shifts, the cameraman accidentally shakes the camera.

The Scientist - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Newkirk calls "Heil Hitler", everyone in the lobby salutes. A second later, in the closeup of Hogan and Newkirk, everyone's arms are suddenly back by their sides, much too quickly to be real.

Get Fit or Go Fight - S5-E16

Factual error: In the rec hall where Klink is weightlifting, there is an advertisement poster for the Grindelwald region on the wall, which is in Switzerland. The German propaganda poured a lot of money into promoting the Reich's own recreational regions through the "Kraft durch Freude" program. With the war going badly, they especially wouldn't want a "Look how beautiful Switzerland is" poster in plain view of their troops every day.

The Swing Shift - S2-E21

Factual error: In this episode, the HofBrau (which should correctly be written "Hofbräu") is displaying a big red neon sign above its door. From 1939 on, air raid regulations throughout Germany strictly prohibited any unnecessary display of light at night. Any light visible from more than 500m away was considered a breach of air raid regulations.

The Great Brinksmeyer Robbery - S2-E18

Factual error: In the restaurant in Hammelburg, where Schultz discovers Hogan and Newkirk, there's an advertisement for "Brauerei der Jager, Stadt Wien." (Wien = Vienna) Vienna and Hammelburg are more than 500km apart, and if Hammelburg were near Düsseldorf, where the series puts it, it would be more like 700km. That's a bit far away for a brewery to advertise in the pre-globalisation era.

Reservations Are Required - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Hogan dumps a bucket of water on Barnes and Davis each, to make it look like they were the ones who hid in the tanker. They get big wet patches on their uniforms from it, but aren't completely wet through and through - which is to be expected, after all it's just a small bucket of water each. After the next cut however, they are completely soaked like they went swimming.

Is There a Doctor in the House? - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: As Carter blows into the bottom of the oven, the suds that hit Newkirk in the face come out in a thin stream on top, not out of the whole stovepipe.

Crittendon's Commandos - S5-E25

Character mistake: To have an excuse not to start up the truck motor, Schultz claims his driver's license has expired. German driver's licenses don't expire.

Information Please - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When Schultz checks the barbed wire to see if it is fixed now, he noticeably wiggles the vertical wire, but only barely touches the horizontal one - because it is rigged to come apart, and will again if he handles it too roughly.

Clearance Sale at the Black Market - S4-E1

Character mistake: When Hogan addresses him, Major Kiegel sends the girls away from his table by saying "Raus!" The word "raus" used as an imperative literally means "out" in the sense of "leave the room" - he would be ordering the girls to leave the tavern, or at least the tap room in this case. It's not correct German to use it to send somebody away from a table.

Monkey Business - S3-E29

Factual error: In several episodes, Hogan's men communicate by radio with a British submarine, and the dialog hints that the sub is submerged at the time. During the WWII era, submarines could not communicate by radio without surfacing first. In most episodes one might argue that the sub could be running shallow with a mast up, which would perhaps be within the technical possibilities of the era, but in this episode, the sub is talking to Hogan's men while under attack by a destroyer. This pretty much rules out running at periscope depth, because ramming was regularly-used tactic for killing subs that were in the process of diving or surfacing. To avoid confusion: Nowadays, subs can communicate while running several hundred feet deep by using VLF and ELF. However, these are definitely not capable of transmitting voice, but are text-only.

Show generally

Audio problem: In several episodes, e.g. S1E31, German police sirens are heard to underline the impending arrival of Gestapo or other police officers. In each occurrence, the sample used has a distinct Doppler effect. Doppler effect in a sound occurs only if a vehicle passes by the listener at high speed, not when a vehicle approaches a place directly and stops.

Bad Day in Berlin - S4-E11

Factual error: The ambulance Major Teppel transports the prisoners in is a Dodge WC54, which is an American military ambulance, not a German one.

Guess Who Came to Dinner? - S4-E9

Factual error: Schultz says, Von Grubner has "a castle right next to the Führer's in Berchtesgaden." Hitler's famous real estate in Obersalzberg wasn't a castle but a mountain chalet based on a former farm estate called the "Steinhaus".

Bad Day in Berlin - S4-E11

Other mistake: As LeBeau is being interrogated, on the barometer behind Schultz you can make out the word "fair." What is a barometer labeled in English doing in a German counter-intelligence headquarters?

Guess Who Came to Dinner? - S4-E9

Audio problem: When Hogan says "Why is it you can only trust short, dumpy spies?" the movement of his lips does not match the words.
