Jackie Brown (1997)

New this month Factual error: Ordell's house is set in Hermosa Beach. In the scenes that you can see out of his living room window, there is the beach, and a bike path approximately halfway between the house and the ocean. The bike path in the movie is a good distance from the house, but in actuality the Hermosa Beach bike path is right in front of the houses. There is also a rock formation seen outside of the window, which is not in Hermosa Beach either.

Heroes (2006)

Season 1 generally

Trivia: All of Season 1 is shot in Los Angeles, and surrounding areas. When you see skylines of popular cities like Las Vegas and New York, they are digitally added in post-production. Even the shot of Hiro when he first teleports to Times Square was done in Los Angeles using a green screen.

Collision - S1-E4

Trivia: After Hiro and Ando are in Vegas using Hiro's abilities to "cheat" at gambling, they are riding an escalator dressed in identical suits.

Heroes (2006)

Season 1 generally

Trivia: On the floor of Isaac's loft, the painting of the New York explosion was originally done in black and white. The pilot episode and a couple others where shot with the black and white floor. The color was added in post-production. After a couple of episodes of them having to digitally add color, and realizing they would be shooting in Isaac's loft a lot, the producers finally decided to have the floor painted to save time and production costs.

Talk Radio (1988)

Talk Radio mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When Barry is on the phone with Kent for the 2nd time (right before Barry invites Kent to the station), we see Dan (Alec Baldwin) in the booth trying to get Barry to hang up on Kent. Dan holds up a sign that says "dump HIM." Problem is, we are looking at a reflection of the sign, so the sign was actually written backwards, as a mirror image.
