10 mistakes in season 4

(6 votes)

Brother's Keeper - S4-E4

Factual error: None of the Swedish wedding traditions Ingrid mention actually existed in the 19th century and the bread she's baked is not traditionally Swedish. When she later speaks in her mother tongue it's definitely not Swedish.

Tin Star - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When the whole town comes to support Matthew, we can see Hank and the reverend walking up behind him. A few seconds later, we see them both again, now they're walking with Colleen and Brian, and they have just come around the corner to see what all the fuss is about.

Promises, Promises - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Dorothy is doing laundry, she grabs a large piece of linen from the washtub, as Dr. Mike approaches and they talk about Dorothy hiring a caregiver for Loren, during his stroke. As Dorothy starts cranking the linen through the wringer, she stops to protest to Dr Mike about it but then turns around holding the wrung linen in her hand, though she hadn't finished cranking it out. (00:32:30 - 00:33:20)

Suggested correction: He was out. It was obvious that he was out when Quinn said he caught it. There would be no point in having to call him out. Otis is then seen telling his players to return to their bases because they could be tagged out. But he doesn't bother going anywhere because even he knew he was out. And we do see the players get called out.


Halloween III - S4-E5

Plot hole: Mike repeatedly tells Brian and Sully there's no such thing as ghosts when she saw and spoke to Abigail's ghost in the first Halloween episode.


Traveling All-Stars - S4-E2

Character mistake: Loren mistakenly calls each pitch at the batter's mound a strike, when that is when a pitch is out of batting mounds, or the batter misses. A ball is when the batter ignores the pitch or doesn't make a swing.

Suggested correction: A player doesn't have to swing for a pitch to be a strike. He called them correctly.


Well unless I've missed something over the years in baseball... and Loren's obvious confusion on what to call... when a batter remains stationary during a pitch, that is a standard all-out ball. When the batter moves or swings and misses the pitch, it is a strike.


His initial hesitation had nothing to do with it being a bad call. And yes, you've missed a lot over the years. A batter can move or even check swing and still the pitch could be called a ball. When a batter remains stationary, that doesn't change a strike into a ball just because he didn't swing or attempt to swing. The poem "Casey at the Bat" is all about him not swinging on the first two pitches, and they were both called strikes.


Dorothy's Book - S4-E6

Factual error: In the later seasons (4-6) all the characters keep referring to their location as 'Colorado Springs' instead of just stating 'here'. Example: "I told him to stay in Colorado Springs" instead of just stating "I told him to stay HERE"


Hank Lawson: I ain't stupid.
Olive Bray: Well, that's a matter of opinion.

Legend - S5-E9

Question: When Matthew goes against Dr. Quinn's suggestion that he needs to rest and heal, and hitches his curse to leave, the sign above him says "Coopering." Shouldn't that be "Coppering"?

Answer: A Cooper was someone who made various things out of wood including wooden caskets and even barrels.
