Getting the Bird - S5-E4

Audio problem: Jonesy is playing the organ. A pigeon 'flies' out the top of the organ and lands on the keys, so Jonesy picks it up and moves it, taking both his hands off the keys. Yet the music plays on.

Show generally

Audio problem: When Aetius first displays the Roman legions to Attila, the soldiers are marching out of step with the beat of the drums. Also, at the wedding of Attila and Ildico, the beat of the music is very much out of sync with the dancing and hand-clapping.

How Titus Pullo Brought Down the Republic - S1-E2

Audio problem: In the scene where Mark Antony and his men are attacked by a mob on their way to the senate forum, Mark Antony says, "Rally to me" three times. The first time he says it, his lips do not move. The third time he says it, the movement of his lips do not match the words.

The Dark Gate - S2-E24

Audio problem: Apparently there was a problem with the sound recording during a scene of Ben Cartwright speaking to his son Adam while standing by the chuck wagon. One of Ben's lines was dubbed in by someone else whose voice was higher-pitched and less gruff than that of actor Lorne Greene.

The Strength of the Wolf - S3-E4

Audio problem: One of the team members shoots a sentry on board a ship off a ladder attached to the deck hanging off the side of the ships hull. He shoots an unsurpassed Glock and the shot sounds suppressed. A muzzle flash can be seen too, another indicator it's unsuppressed. Their element of surprise would have been totally eliminated had this really happened. They've used suppressors before on their sidearms - doesn't make sense why they wouldn't now. (00:31:00)

Episode #1.2 - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Dong-mae and his men leave after searching the house, Su-mi is still holding onto the baby after leaving. The baby is heard crying, but there is a brief moment where she shakes her to calm him down, and we can see the baby's eyes when she does so. In the brief instance where we see the baby's eyes, she does not appear to be crying, indicating that the crying sounds were dubbed in afterwards. (00:45:05)
