Little House on the Prairie picture

There's No Place Like Home (2) - S5-E6

Other mistake: At the very end, Mr. Hanson is seen walking toward the church. Because of his stroke, he's slow and unsteady. We see several close-ups of his feet, showing how he's struggling. Two of those shots are the same footage. It's obvious, because you see that he drags his foot over a small stick in the road and stumbles - and in both shots, it is exactly the same.

The Library - S3-E5

Other mistake: Dr. Mike spots a charred Bible within the charred piles of books, and heads into the church. The Reverend is giving a sermon on morality, and offers Dr. Mike the floor and she briefs about certain stories in the book, which would be considered scandalous, without mentioning the book's title, then hands it to the Reverend who agrees such stories are scandalous, until he turns it over, to see that its 'The Holy Bible'. Being a Reverend, he should know The Bible cover to cover, but reacts surprised or shocked over the mentioning of the scandalous stories. (00:36:00 - 00:41:00)

Hell on Wheels picture

White Justice - S5-E3

Other mistake: The "Construction Manager" being the boss of three men makes $125 a month, but the 3 of them make $15 a day working, which is $150 a month. How can the boss make $25 a month less? Even if the three did not work on Sundays... they would still make the same or more than their boss... "Three good men? Them plus some Jakes, yeah. Next time you want a favor, spare me the song and dance, Mr. Strobridge. (Bangs table) They're capable. They are dead weight. Expensive dead weight, at a time when I need all of my resources focused on breaking through that tunnel. And Jim, Charlie Crocker found you five years ago. You were digging ditches in San Jose for pennies a day, and you make $125 a month as construction manager for the greatest enterprise in the history of America. All I'm saying is, $15 a day means a whole lot more to those men than it does to this enterprise." (00:14:30 - 00:15:00)

Clyde - S5-E13

Other mistake: As the 2 buffaloes are walking out of the scene at the top of the hill Charlie says to Clyde that 'it's either gonna be her or me' but as both buffaloes' bellies are exposed in the same shot, it's clear that both buffaloes are males, or bulls.
