Days Gone Bye - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the car flips in the chase scene, you can see the round canister used to flip it. (00:10:25)

Days Gone Bye - S1-E1

Factual error: Ten minutes into the episode, where they're setting up their police-blockade, a cop makes a remark about being in some TV-show when Rick Grimes replies with: "Make sure you've got a round in the chamber and your safety off". Next we see the first cop checking his gun (a Glock) for a round in the chamber and we see him flicking his thumb across the gun's slide catch: not a safety-lever. Glocks don't have an external safety, so the cop cannot flick a safety-lever like in the episode. (00:10:10)

Days Gone Bye - S1-E1

Factual error: The supposedly American tank Rick crawls into in Atlanta has US markings but is a British Chieftain.

Grumpy Scot

Days Gone Bye - S1-E1

Plot hole: Rick wakes from his coma with a perfectly trimmed beard. Clearly the hospital had been abandoned for a while, so no-one to trim it. (00:15:00)

Other mistake: In the opening scene when the cop stops at the side of the road & walks between the truck & car you can see there is no engine or transmission on the truck lying on its side. (00:00:20)

Days Gone Bye - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Rick falls off the horse in the city center, he drops the gun duffel bag close to him near him at the rear of the tank. In the closing scene, the last five seconds, there is an overview of the street and the tank. But the black duffel bag cannot be seen.

Continuity mistake: When the stinger is deployed it covers the whole road but in the front long shot it doesn't. (00:09:05)

Season 5 generally

Rick Grimes: This is how we survive. We tell ourselves that we are the walking dead.
