Continuity mistake: When Hannah makes the list with names involving her past events, they differ substantially between the close-up when they're written and the final wide angle once the paper is finished. Check Alexander: first an irregular oval with a straight side, then a perfect oval.Sacha
Other mistake: As Young Sheldon is a prequel series to Big Bang Theory, this episode is at odds with episode 2-13 of Big Bang Theory, "The Friendship Algorithm," in which Sheldon is unfamiliar with books like "How to Make Friends and Influence People," which he reads in this episode of Young Sheldon, produced nine years later but taking place twenty years earlier.DavidK93
New this month Plot hole: Everyone on the planet freaks out because two of the crewmembers have birthdays soon, marking them as "Gilliak." But no-one makes the connection that birthdays, dates, years, etc. will be entirely different on this planet than under Union dating.Jon Sandys
Revealing mistake: The first time we see the raid on the senator's room, 2 security guards are shot in the head. The blood spray from the second one emerges a fraction of a second before the gun fires. The second time the raid is played out, everything happens exactly the same way, but this time the spray matches the gunshot. (00:11:10)Jon Sandys
Factual error: The briefer on the oil platform mission says the platform is 12 stories, and 80 million square feet. Doing the math, that makes it half a mile per side if completely square. It is nowhere near that size as shown. The largest oil rig in the world - Berkut in Russia's Far East - has a combined deck area of only 342,000 square feet. (00:13:35)toroscan
Factual error: In the opening sequence when Maddie is supposedly driving from Michigan through Ohio and back to Pennsylvania, you can very briefly spot the reflection of a "TD Canada Trust" in the car window. This is because the show is actually shot in Vancouver. In the United States the company is simply known as "TD Bank", which doesn't operate any branches in either Michigan or Ohio. (00:01:55)
