The Dark and Bloody Ground - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: In another attempt to his life, Rockford has to somehow stop his car when his brakes have been sabotaged. However, at the end of its run the brakes are activated, suddenly locking the back wheels, causing the car to stop, and not the slow-down determined by the dirt mound. (00:25:15)

The Dark and Bloody Ground - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Jim is back home, and is talking to his dad. Rocky says a firm "No" when Jim says that the guy in the truck was trying to kill him; he points his right index finger as he says the word. Reverse shot, and it's the left index. (00:23:30)

Trivia: The bio on the back of the book (unsure when it was supposed to be printed, let's assume that copy is from that same year) says that the author was born 58 years ago. The man we see dead at the beginning of the episode looks several years younger. The picture used at the back of the book is from actor Guy Williams, who was almost 50 at the time.
