Time Tunnel

Chase Through Time - S1-E24

Factual error: Doug and Tony time travel to one million years B.C., where they encounter dinosaurs. Not likely. All the dinosaurs were rendered extinct several million years earlier by an asteroid strike. There weren't any left by 1-million BC. (00:29:45)

Invasion - S1-E15

Factual error: The Gestapo major's office has a picture of Rudolf Hess hanging on the wall. Not likely, as Hess parachuted into Scotland in 1941 and was considered a traitor to the Third Reich.

The Death Merchant - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: When Tony begins fighting the Union soldier, Tony kicks the soldier's musket out of his hands and it lands to the right. The next overhead shot now shows the musket landed behind the soldier as Tony picks it up to fight another soldier.
