Bruce Wayne McQueen - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: During Vic's fight with Bing and Charlie at The Lake House, her leather jacket has a left-breast zippered pocket that switches to the right breast as she tears off the property on her motor bike, then switches back to the left side as she rides to intercept Charlie in The Wraith.

Factual error: When Austin rounds the corner of the London street leading the band and the dancers, a large, white warehouse-looking building is reflected in the right front fender of a blue car at the lower left of the screen. Not a 60s London building - most likely it is a building on the studio lot.

Hogan's Heroes (1965)

I Look Better in Basic Black - S1-E28

Factual error: When the SS guard is calling Sergeant Shultz after seeing the burning fuse, he addresses Shultz as "Sergeant", rather than the proper German word for Shultz's rank, "Feldwebel."

Suggested correction: "Hogan's Heroes" is an American television show produced for an English speaking audience. The whole show is shot in English! Did you expect Schultz and Klink to speak German and LeBeau to speak French?

I have seen MANY instances in the show where German characters are speaking actual German phrases (many quite accurately, by the way) and ranks of fellow German soldiers. When the German characters are addressing English-speaking characters in this American-made show, you do expect them to speak German-accented English, however, when German-speaking characters speak German to each other, one expects them to use the proper address and vernacular Germans would use and not mix in other languages. In this case, the SS guard did not know a lick of English when he was questioning some prisoners who were out their barracks, but addresses Sergeant Schultz as "Sergeant" rather than "Feldwebel." Furthermore, why aren't little things like buckets of water used in the show are labeled, "Water" rather than the German "Wasser"? Why isn't the list of rules tacked onto the barracks say "Forbidden" rather than "Verboten"?

Scott215

The point is that when German characters are speaking to each other, it is assumed by the audience that they are speaking German and we are hearing an English translation for our convenience. In the world of the show, they are using the German term, but we hear the English equivalent.

Trivia: In the film, the German commander, played by Robert Shaw, is ecstatic about using the new Tiger tanks in the attack. However, Jochen Peiper, the real commander Shaw is based on, did not want to use Tigers as they were too slow and used up huge amounts of fuel. Peiper preferred to use Panthers and MK IV tanks, but was pressured to use the Tigers for political, propaganda and morale purposes.

Scott215

Continuity mistake: After inspecting the new Tiger tanks, Col. Hessler approaches Gen. Koehler, smiling. The next quick shot of Hessler shows him just starting to smile.
