The David and Goliath Raid - S2-E2

Factual error: Some of Dietrich's command vehicles have license plates that begin with the letters "WL", denoting German Luftwaffe (Air Force), rather than "WH", which denotes Wehrmacht (Army), of which the Deutsche Afrika Korps were a part. Dietrich is not part of the Luftwaffe's "Ramcke Brigade" which also served in North Arfrica - he is Deutsche Afrika Korps (again, part of the regular German Army).

Trivia: During the "Psycho" shower scene, Bugs Bunny pours a can of chocolate syrup near the drain, and the syrup swirls into the drain. In the original Hitchcock movie "Psycho", chocolate syrup was poured down the shower drain to simulate Janet Leigh's blood going down the drain after she was stabbed by Anthony Perkins.

Factual error: The "Peace" symbol that adorns the uniforms of Byer's men did not come about until the late 1950's.

Star Trek (1966)

Devil in the Dark - S1-E26

Character mistake: Kirk informs Spock via communicator the Horta is ten feet from him, and Spock insists Kirk kill it. First, both know they cannot kill it with their phasers, and second, Spock's demand for Kirk to kill the Horta runs counter to the Vulcan philosophy of respect for all life. Spock would never want to harm, let alone kill, another life form.

Suggested correction: At this point they don't have any proof that they can't kill it, and since Kirk is in danger, it's logical to try. Also, Spock is half human and he's concerned about his best friend being killed. Logical or not, he'll want Kirk to protect himself at all costs. Other episodes have shown where Spock doesn't always behave logically when his friends are at risk and he lets his emotions come out.
