Some of Their Planes Are Missing - S3-E2

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.

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.

Hogan, Go Home - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is by the truck, Newkirk responds to his question about packages. Crittendon has his swagger stick under his arm, then it's suddenly in front if him in his hands.

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

Other mistake: As Carter gets ready to clean out the stove, Newkirk closes his eyes and winces just before the bellows Carter has blows.

Continuity mistake: In Klink's office, the lower corner of the poster Hogan holds up alternates between being over the right side of his chest, to being tucked under, and back.

An Evening of Generals - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the barracks, after Hogan asks Newkirk about volunteering, the coffee cup Newkirk has is held with his left hand fingers in the handle. After the angle cut, the cup is in his hand with the handle toward the camera.

One in Every Crowd - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As Klink's car pulls up, and Klink comes around the front of it, the shadow of the camera is visible.

Movie Nut

Hot Money - S3-E9

Other mistake: When Hogan is using the periscope to look at the incoming vehicles, the angle seen is from an elevated position. The view from the periscope should have been straight on, rather than elevated.

Movie Nut

Nights in Shining Armor - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Hogan shoots the vest, it stays still for a couple of seconds then swings in a way that is not normal.

Movie Nut

What Time Does the Balloon Go Up? - S3-E24

Plot hole: Hogan has the men fly kites to get wind data and build a hot air balloon for a man to escape in. In reality, kites and hot air balloons are pretty much mutually exclusive - if there's enough wind to fly kites, one can't launch a hot air balloon, and vice versa.

The Ultimate Weapon - S3-E28

Factual error: Towards the end of the episode, Burkhalter gets a call from a General Seidenbaum. Anybody with such a "Jewish" name would have been weeded out of the officer corps by the Nazis. In fact, anyone of that name would have had great trouble even getting his Ariernachweis (proof or aryan ancestry), and without carrying a copy with him he could not have opened a charge account at the local bakery. Most people with such names (those who managed to pass the Nazi board of racial review) had them changed to more "German" ones like Müller or Schmidt to escape the constant bullying. A little bit of background on "jewish" names: At some time during the medieval period, Jews in the German Reich who traditionally didn't use last names were forced to have them. Many selected names like Gruenbaum, Cornfield, etc. Which over time were perceived as "typical Jewish" names, even though many bearers weren't even of Jewish faith any more.

Drums Along the Dusseldorf - S3-E30

Factual error: All through this episode, characters keep referring to the river the bridge *du jour* spans as "The Düsseldorf" or "Düsseldorf river." The city of Düsseldorf is situated on the river Rhine - there is no "Düsseldorf river." It's a well known fact that the producers were hardly geography whizzes, but not knowing the Rhine is bad even by their standards. Curiously enough, there kinda is a "Düsseldorf river" called the Düssel, and it meets the Rhine there. The Düssel however is a small streamlet that a well-trained man could probably jump over - so the mistake is still a valid one.

Duel of Honor - S3-E22

Other mistake: Towards the end, the shot of the plane landing is a recycled shot. Even though Klink waved the flashlight, an unidentified person can be seen in the shot waving a signal light in the midst of the field. Klink was by his car.

Movie Nut

Hogan, Go Home - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In Hogan's quarters, as he and Critendon are talking, his arms are by his sides, and suddenly crossed. As Hogan goes to get his hat off Critendon's sword, his right hand is shown, then after the angle changes, his left hand draws back with the hat, and his right comes up to grab it.

Movie Nut

Nights in Shining Armor - S3-E8

Other mistake: In Hogan's quarters, after Hogan reveals the two Aces up Newkirk's sleeve, Newkirk goes to brush his hair. As his hand goes up, you can see the cards in his hand.
