FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Sybil Brand Institute, the only female correctional facility in Los Angeles County for three decades, is the filming location for the Los Angeles Federal Penitentiary. Closed in 1997, the facility is used for filming numerous tv series.

    • Opening Numb3rs:
      500,000 DOLLARS
      6000 INMATES
      1 MISSING PRISONER
      60 MINUTES TO FIND HIM

    • Los Angeles Federal Penitentiary, the setting of the episode, does not exist in reality. The only federal penitentiary in Los Angeles is Metropolitan Detention Center.

    • Nobody seems to notice that Galvin, the planner of explosive breach and Salazar's mole, disappears when the actual breach occurs.

    • Regardless of the outcome of the initial charges against Ian, once he assaulted the Marshals, escaped from custody, and held an FBI agent hostage, he was guilty of multiple serious felonies and should have expected to be sent to prison. So it's utterly implausible that a federal agent would think that there would be a satisfactory conclusion by taking the actions he did, even if he was exonerated of the murder.

    • The US Marshals would have never been at an initial crime scene such as when Ian was first arrested. Their jurisdiction includes prisoners, witnesses, and fugitives only. Before he was arrested, Ian was none of those things.
