  • Season 2 Episode 16: The Vestige

  • Goof: Margo says not even the "Federales" would come up there to enforce the law. Brazil, whose main language is Portugese and not Spanish, calls their national law enforcement officers "Policia Federal". "Federales" is a slang term for Mexican police. Many might make that mistake, but Margo, who is the language expert of the team, would have known that Spanish was not the correct language, even if she didn't know the proper designation in Portugese. Later, when the Policia check Keene's camp, they speak Spanish, as well. The soldier, finding a bottle of liquor, says, "Bueno", when he should have said, "Bom."

  • Sanchez mentions that he has a subscription to Soldier of Fortune Magazine. That magazine is one of the commercial sponsors of the show, and the mention was added as product placement, as well as a bit of humor.

  • Goof: Margo pulls a blood stained journal out from under one of the missing NASA techs. But the blood on the book is bright red, not brown, as old, dried blood would be. The Amazon Rain Forest is extremely humid, but after over a week the blood would still change color from bright red to something duller.

  • Nitpick: Trout tells Matt that the locals are blaming the disappearances on a lost Amazonian tribe that supposedly practices Voodoo and human sacrifice. Human sacrifice is an ancient practice in some parts of Central and South America, but is mostly associated with the Moche and Incas of Peru, not the denizens of the Rain Forest. Voodoo was brought to Brazil by slaves from Haiti, who in turn brought it from West Africa, but in Brazil it is known as Macumba, and would not be part of the native practices of a lost Amazonian tribe.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: The Lord Is My Shepherd

  • Margo reveals that she used to live in Romania as a girl, and that she has a brother who is a Monsignor in the Catholic Church.

  • Season 2 Episode 9: Charade

  • Ernie Mirich, who plays Steve, is actually Melinda Clarke's husband.

  • Season 2 Episode 8: Hide and Seek

  • Nitpick: Gabriel manages to fire the stinger missile before he dies. He misses the Indian helicopter, but it would have gone off eventually, even if only in the lake or in the ground, yet there is no explosion seen or heard.

  • Nitpick: Gabriel constructs a hide for himself while waiting for the Indians' helocopter, but exits it to fire. A real assassin would have remained in the hide, and made sure that it was located in a place that was suitable for him to take his shot.

  • Nitpick: For the final attack on Gabriel, in an unknown position, only Matt and Margo are on the ground, with Nick and Benny Ray staying in the SUV. If there was a need for a backstop, why not make it Nick and Margo, the least experienced shooters? Benny Ray's sniper abilities would be invaluable in a situation like this, and should not have been left out of the primary mission. And where did Deke in the second vehicle disappear to? He drives to Reisel, but then doesn't join them to go after Gabriel.

  • Season 2 Episode 7: Iraq and Roll

  • Goof: The hand-off of Hamza is supposed to take place at 48th and 10th, but the street shown is along the Hudson River, which is several blocks away from 10th to the west. The real intersection of 10th and 48th is surrounded by many businesses, making the address a poor choice for a clandestine meeting.

  • Season 2 Episode 6: Trade Off

  • Nitpick: The terrorists booby trap the dead hunter with what looks like a stick of dynamite. But why would the hunters have been carrying dynamite and the necessary wires for a detonator trigger? Even if they were planning to do some illegal dynamite fishing, they wouldn't have had anything with which to make a detonator for a booby trap.

  • Goof: When the dogs pick up the terrorists' scent again on the river, Deke finds a scrap of thin, white cotton material in the reeds as proof that they are back on track. But the prisoners are wearing prison clothes- dungarees, and blue Oxford shirts. There is no white cotton material on them to have been left (socks, undershirt, and underwear would have been the wrong kind of material, and unlikely to be torn off anyways).

  • Season 2 Episode 4: Party Girl

  • Goof: When Sherri tells Margo about seeing the Congressman, she calls him "Cavaner". But when Matt is reading a newspaper article about the same man, he calls him "Kruener".

  • Season 2 Episode 3: Spyder's Web

  • The flag of the made up country "Rumansk" has three horizontal stripes, the top being white, middle blue, and the bottom red. This is actually the real flag of Russia. They are also speaking in Russian at the dinner party.

  • David Eigenberg is added to the opening credits in this episode.

  • Carmen Electra, who guest stars as Tanya, was dating Dennis Rodman when the show was being made.

  • Season 1 Episode 20: Top Event

  • Nitpick: Kasima Fada is supposed to be a Muslim woman who commands men into becoming martyrs for Allah, yet she wears tight fitting clothing and no headscarf, as an Orthodox Muslim woman would. Many Muslim countries have less stringent dress codes for women, but these are supposed to be fanatics, so her immodest clothing would definitely be an issue for at least some of the men, unless it was only being worn to disguise her to any American opposition.

  • Season 1 Episode 19: Payback

  • Michaels puts a plastic bag over Frank Broderick's face and then pours water over him. This is the torture technique known as "waterboarding", which causes the victim to feel as if they are drowning. This interrogation technique dates from the Spanish Inquisition, and is favored by some because it leaves no physical marks on the subject.

  • Season 1 Episode 17: Tight Spot

  • Goof: The collar tabs and shoulder boards of the Korean Colonel are incorrect. The stars are positioned to form a triangle, but they should all be in line with each other.

  • Nitpick: CJ's demolition charges are used as decoys and as antipersonnel weapons. But many go off behind the North Korean soldiers in the brightly lit territory directly in front of the compound's fence. There is no way CJ could have planted them without being spotted by the guards on duty.
