Good Omens picture

Hard Times - S1-E3

Factual error: Aziraphale cites the only prophecy from Agnes Nutter that he could find as one for 1972, "do not buy Betamax" (a reference to the home video format war). Betamax was only launched in 1975 starting in Japan, so this advice wouldn't be of any use until 1976. (And these prophecies were completely, even ludicrously accurate, so that excludes any explanation that she was simply a few years off, because she was never wrong). (00:19:10)

The Czech List - S1-E2

Factual error: Will is asked by Jai to place his wrist watch - which is filled with explosives - against a wall. He does, and it somehow sticks to the vertical concrete wall. An adhesive back would have been noticed by Will, as it was against his skin on his wrist. Not to mention that an explosion in a contained space that small would have deafened them both, or worse. (00:35:05)
