5 mistakes in The Empty Parachute

The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Other mistake: Hogan is disarming a booby trap briefcase. The bomb expert tells him over the radio he has to decide to turn the handle clockwise or counterclockwise. The expert doesn't know which way to turn it. Hogan turns the handle counterclockwise and disarms the booby trap, and the expert says counterclockwise. There's no way the expert would have known which way Hogan turned the handle. (00:21:50 - 00:22:26)

Suggested correction: He didn't know, which is why he asked it as a question. He said "counter-clockwise?"


Suggested correction: Umm probably because he didn't hear a loud explosion.


The Empty Parachute - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Hogan turns Shultz around, grabs one of the grenades Shultz is carrying, and hands it off. The one grabbed was closest to Shultz's left side. A few moments later, Shultz turns his back briefly to the camera; there is now a space between the grenades, as if Hogan grabbed the middle one.

Suggested correction: Although Schultz doesn't have the grenades and his rifle with him in Klink's office, he may have stopped in the outer office and left the grenades and his rifle before entering Klink's office.

Answer: Nimrod's actual identity was never revealed in the series. It was only known that he was a British intelligence agent. Nimrod was not Colonel Klink. Hogan had only implied it was him as a ruse to get Klink returned as camp commandant, not wanting him replaced by someone more competent who would impede the Heroes war activities. (As another contributor previously posted, the term "nimrod" is slang for a nerdy, doofus type of person, though it's unclear why that was his code name).
