Show generally

Factual error: In one show, Sean and Claudia are in Las Vegas. Sean is doing well at the craps table and starts showing off. One time he even throws the dice around his back onto the table. However, when players are playing craps, they have to keep the dice above the table at all times. People working at a craps table would not have allowed Sean to do what he did.

Sibling Bonds - S1-E17

Factual error: During the montage of Lizzie and Matt at the charity drive golf tournament, there is one part where Lizzie is standing outside the Men's toilet as Matt uses it. However they are handcuffed together with cuffs that have a chain which is about an inch long, so there is no way Matt could use the toilet with Lizzie standing outside the door. (00:16:40)
