Continuity mistake: When the intruder sneaks into Jody's apartment, he is wearing black leather jeans. When he and Jody are fighting, he is suddenly wearing black denim jeans. After beating Jody and tying her up, he is back in his leather jeans again and keeps them on for the rest of the episode.
Trivia: When Colt finds Syringes in Cassie's bag, she explains that she is a Type 1 Diabetic which stunted her growth. In real life Dana Hill who played Cassie was indeed a Type 1 Diabetic which did indeed stunt her growth. Sadly the actress would pass away from a diabetes related illness in 1996.

Other mistake: When Wolverine and John Wraith arrive in New Orleans, the street is jammed with people and the casino they find Gambit in is also completely full of patrons. Yet somehow Wolverine being thrown through a wall, his loud shouting, his slicing a fire-ladder to pieces and Gambits massive shock thrust somehow draws absolutely no attention from anyone except the main characters.

Question: When Avram is departing on his horse after meeting Tommy, Tommy asks him if he speaks any Mexican. Abram, who doesn't, is puzzled by the question and asks why...to which Tommy responds "Just curious." I've always assumed that Tommy was mocking him cause he was unknowingly riding south and headed for Mexico instead of West towards San Francisco. Am I right?

Question: Johnny punishes his Cobra Kai class after learning that certain members trashed Daniel's Dojo to try to get the culprits to confess (with no luck). Why didn't he just send them all to Daniel's Dojo to clean up the mess and fix it up? That would have been the more honourable thing to do.

Trivia: In the original script Manny was supposed to be a convicted killer but writer Edward Bunker changed it to a safe-cracker because he didn't feel the other prisoners would respect a killer. Curiously this makes Warden Rankin's bitter and homicidal hatred towards Manny (which included welding him into his cell for 2 years) rather questionable as safe cracking isn't remotely as serious as murder.

Trivia: This show pays many homages to the 1968 film Bullitt which was also set in San Francisco. Firstly officer Rebecca Madsen's car is the exact same make, colour, and model Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in Bullitt. Also the final episode (Tommy Madsen) features a car chase which recreates many shots from the 1968 film. It even includes the green Beetle Volkswagen coming down the hill as seen in the movie.

Visible crew/equipment: When Rebecca Madsen jumps in her car to pursue the armored truck, as she does a U-turn and takes off at high speed, you can see all the people standing on the side watching the filming. Some even have their phone cameras out videoing it. (00:29:30)

Trivia: When David is grabbing Sam as he is escaping from the cave, he looks at his burnt hand and a tear comes out of his eye. The reason for this was Kiefer Sutherland had been wearing his vampire eye contact far too long and when he looked at his burning hand, the extreme light caused his eye to water up. This has been confirmed by Kiefer himself.

Question: I recently saw this film at a local cinema and I noticed that there was a scene missing from when I first saw this film as a kid. In the aforementioned scene, Dallas is on the main computer (Mother) trying to get information about how to destroy the Alien. The computer just keeps responding with "Can not compute." He finally asks "What are my chances" and still gets the same response. I was wondering if anyone remembered this scene and knows why its been removed?

Trivia: Ally Sheedy was mortified after learning that she had to perform a sex scene as she presumed that it would be offscreen and simply implied. Director Joel Schumacher convinced her to do it by agreeing to only shoot her and Andrew McCarthy from the neck up. Also the scene where she accidentally pushes the shower screen down was unscripted and McCarthy's laughing reaction was genuine.

Stupidity: For a brilliant criminal mastermind, Cyrus makes so many idiotic mistakes. (1) He leaves his entire escape plan hidden in the wall for the guards to find later instead of trying to dispose or destroy them (2) He makes the fatal mistake of trusting Santiago completely and never suspecting a double-cross. At the very least, he should have checked all of Lerner airfield just in case the plane was hiding (which it was). (3) He never notices or even questions Billy Bedlam's sudden absence until he sees his body. Odd considering he notice Santiago's absence immediately. And (4) When escaping on the firetruck, he (pointlessly) chooses to ride on the ladder instead of the front seat where he stands out, and Poe and Larkin both spot him. No surprise his whole plan failed.

Stupidity: John Candy was being dragged by the speedboat because he was holding the bar when the boat took off. It simply never occurred to him that letting go off the bar would have solved the problem (Of course then you wouldn't have had the speedboat scene at all but it's still pretty dumb).

Stupidity: After the Defranco "assassination" Rollie learns he is a target and survives two attempts on his life. But instead of leaving town or finding somewhere else to hide for the night, he spends the night in his own apartment (even though he was well aware the killers knew where he lived). As a result, his girlfriend is killed and he barely escapes alive.
