Getting Even - S4-E3

Character mistake: Albert tells Ash that during his service in the UK with the U.S. Air Force he was required to join a squad flying back to the United States in a "B29 Fortress." The B29 Superfortress was not used in the European theatre during World War 2 - it was used exclusively in the war against Japan in the Pacific. The B17 Flying Fortress was a different aircraft. Anybody in the US Air Force at the time would know the difference, and it is not a mistake a veteran would make.

As One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest, One Flew In - S4-E1

Character mistake: Near the end of the episode Danny refers to the money they have stolen, saying "Stacie is sitting next to half a million big ones." Anyone familiar with grifter slang knows a "big one" is a thousand dollars (or pounds, etc.) - certainly Danny Blue would know that. He just said that they have half a billion dollars in their hands. Not a mistake Danny Blue would make.

New Recruits - S5-E2

Factual error: The contract Stone and his team force Carlton Wood and Harry Fielding to sign guaranteeing Fowler's widow the royalties from his invention for life is signed under duress and is therefore invalid. It is hard to believe that none of Stone's team don't know this, but it is impossible to believe that Carlton Wood wouldn't.

Trivia: In some versions of this episode the name of the newspaper the grifters con has been rather clumsily dubbed over as "The Weekend World" rather than the original "The Sunday World", which is a real newspaper.
