The Games Underfoot - S4-E5

Trivia: The searching for buried old video game cartridges is based on a true event of Atari burying their failed video game, "E.T." (arguably one of the worst video games ever and leading to the home video game crash). Atari secretly crushed and buried unsold cartridges, which also mistakenly became an urban legend where the idea of the massive burial was regarded only as a myth. In 2013, a company was granted access to the landfill "E.T." was buried in and a documentary was made filming the search and un-burial, also something one of the characters in the episode said he did.


The Grand Experiment - S2-E24

Trivia: When Mycroft mentions a conversation between Sherlock and their father that he once overheard, the content of said conversation is how Sherlock describes Mycroft to Watson in "The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter."

While You Were Sleeping - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Sherlock was slapped, he later says he was surprised because the girl who slapped him was a "lefty." Then he rubs his right cheek and says it's leathery from all the slaps he's gotten, while the left is soft. This is backwards - anyone hitting him with their right hand would hit his left cheek.
