House of Cards

Chapter 13 - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: Zoe's phone "rings." The phone can be seen flipping the image from horizontal to vertical, something that only happens with pictures, not calls. This, plus the static effect in the "slide to unlock" reveals that it is not a real call but a screenshot made for the scene. (00:19:39)

Chapter 43 - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: After Underwood and Meechum are both shot, other agents pick up the president to transport him to a hospital. Agent Meechum is lying on his back with eyes open. Another agent takes his firearm and checks his carotid artery. Since the agent walks away from Meechum, it's assumed Meechum is dead. However, Meechum is still breathing. (00:21:40)

Dr. Thomas

Chapter 35 - S3-E9

Factual error: When Doug Stamper sits down at his laptop and throws the contents of his cup at the screen, the image immediately freezes and distorts. This would not happen so quickly in a real world event. It may eventually happen but not instantaneously. (00:23:10)

Season 4 generally

Question: In season 3, they were setting up how it was probably going to be Mendoza running for the Republicans. Is there any particular reason they chose Conway instead of Mendoza? (Be it behind the scenes or not).
