Harvest - S2-E14

Corrected entry: The episode claims that a character speaks Tamil however the language the character speaks is not Tamil.

Correction: She was actually speaking Tamil, just very badly. Probably because it's a Hindi actress, not Tamil.

It definitely wasn't Tamil at all! It didn't even sound like a Hindi speaker speaking Tamil.

Prime Suspect - S1-E5

Corrected entry: Charlie Epps is discussing the Riemann Hypothesis, and its relation to very large prime numbers. In the graphics shown on the screen to depict what he is talking about, one of the large numbers shown has "10" for its final two digits. This cannot be a prime number.

Rooster of Doom

Correction: At the zoomed in shot, it appears to be a 10, but something is cut off to make it look like a zero. At a zoom out of this shot, the block reads 719, a prime number.

The Janus List - S3-E24

Corrected entry: In the beginning when they were talking about shutting off the cell phone service to stop the bombs from being detonated, they say "too bad we don't know what cellphone carrier he is using we can block the signal from the tower". When a major bridge is filled with explosives, wouldn't it make more sense to just block ALL the towers regardless of the carrier to be safe?

Boobra

Correction: David says that the jammer doesn't have the range to block the signal from the truck. He said he needs to find out the carrier so that he/they can shut down "a whole grid of towers", which is what they did.

Vector - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Charlie says the disease is a Pandemic Flu, to which Terry replies "The Spanish Flu" and goes off on a monologue about that illness. Pandemic is not the name of the Spanish Flu, pandemic means that it's an illness that infects both humans and animals. There have been several pandemic flus across history.

Correction: Terry mentions the Spanish Flu as an example of a pandemic, rather than saying it's the only one. By the way, the definition of the word 'pandemic' is: "Epidemic over a wide geographic area and affecting a large proportion of the population." It has nothing to do with what the disease infects.

Waste Not - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Around the middle of the episode, Charlie Eppes and Mildred French are discussing in front of a board. She completes an equation and he adds a minus. In the next close shots, the minus disappears and reappears with angle changes. After three or four changes, a circle appears around the minus.

Terry Lake: The laundromat. Dinner was pizza.
Don Eppes: A little professionalism.

Trivia: Judd Hirsch is an astro-physicist and can actually do the math Charlie does on the show. He caught the acting bug in school and chose that over physics.

In Plain Sight - S2-E8

Question: This question is about the mistake where a SWAT officer has a magazine backwards in his MP5. I know this would be impossible on a real weapon. But, how could it have happened in filming? Rubber cast weapon? Very badly worn prop weapon? Set armourer with a hammer and no clue?
