The Games Underfoot - S4-E5

Trivia: The searching for buried old video game cartridges is based on a true event of Atari burying their failed video game, "E.T." (arguably one of the worst video games ever and leading to the home video game crash). Atari secretly crushed and buried unsold cartridges, which also mistakenly became an urban legend where the idea of the massive burial was regarded only as a myth. In 2013, a company was granted access to the landfill "E.T." was buried in and a documentary was made filming the search and un-burial, also something one of the characters in the episode said he did.

Possibility Two - S1-E17

Character mistake: They are in the interrogation room questioning the fiancé of the scientist Natasha when the captain says, "the blood we found at the scene of your fiance's murder, it didn't belong to Bobby Cordero." The characters name was Benny Cordero, which the captain says correctly a few lines later. (00:33:25)

M. - S1-E12

Question: How did Holmes know where M was, so he could have found him and taken him away? And how did Holmes transport M on his own? Was M unconscious, or alert and thus went where Holmes told him to go, or he'd kill him? But M wouldn't do that; he doesn't mind dying.

Chosen answer: M broke into the brownstone and left a note. Holmes deduced he was staying at a high-class hotel from the soap scent on the note, and gave a picture from a hidden camera to his "irregulars" on the street to stake out hotels. One of them saw him, so Holmes followed him to his next intended victim and knocked him unconscious with a baton.
