The Heartbreaker - S5-E21

Factual error: When Elizabeth asks Zeb how Vanessa can be happy, Zeb has his old catalog with a bunch of flower seed packets on his lap, and as they both hold up the packets, particularly Elizabeth, the modern Universal Product Codes are at the back of the packets. The UPC did not exist until many years later. (00:10:05)

Other mistake: When The Hawk flies over and soon lands on the green painted chicken box, not only are different birds of prey shown in these shots, their flight feathers are also intact. When Zeb and Jim-Bob walk over to the bird, it's apparent that The Hawk standing atop the box has the primary feathers clipped on its left wing. (00:31:00)
