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.

Mistakes

When Holmes and Watson are arguing in the kitchen, Watson puts her mug and phone on the counter. A few times during the scene, the mug switches which side of the phone it's on. The first time it's plausible Watson moves it when off camera, but subsequent to that, we can see enough of Watson to tell she doesn't make enough movements to change the position of the mug.
