Pilot - S1-E1

Plot hole: When Brody is flown back he is wearing his uniform, complete with medals and name. But he has been missing for 8 years! Where is that uniform coming from? Not from his wife, because she just heard from him. (00:04:00 - 00:10:00)

Suggested correction: It would have been provided by the military, when he was cleaned up, debriefed and looked after immediately after his rescue. It's mentioned that he returns to the US via a base in Germany, I believe.

Redux - S4-E7

Factual error: The Pakistan Air Force officer in the airport is listed in the credits as 'PAF Lieutenant' and is wearing the two pips of an army lieutenant. In fact, the PAF still uses RAF-style ranks, so he should be a Flying Officer, and the PAF also uses distinctive eight-pointed stars instead of pips.

Chosen answer: Everyone else calls him Brody or Sgt. Brody, and it probably became habit to her.


Can't get the source but I read that even the Producer responded to that. Stating that it was common practise for a military wife living in a military complex as everybody refers to their husband by their last name.
