  • Season 2 Episode 22: The Night Demon (aka: Dae...

  • When Jaime shows up at Lyle's workshop looking for him, she grabs up a (conveniently available) Geiger counter and starts waving it around the place, checking for signs of radioactivity. She's surprised to see that it reacts most strongly to her shoes, saying "Where'd I pick that up?" Problem is, Jaime's bionic legs are powered by a radioactive power unit that would, no doubt, interfere with any attempt to get an accurate reading of particles on her shoes.

  • Season 2 Episode 21: The DeJon Caper

  • When Beaumont and his goons show up at the museum to switch the forged painting with the real one, they make no attempt to shield the painting (or their own faces!) from view. It's nighttime, but anyone walking by could easily see them walking in with a painting and become suspicious and/or be questioned later by authorities.

  • When Lambert created a diversion at the museum (by throwing a rock through the window), there was no alarm at all...in a museum with priceless paintings! The same is true when Jaime crawled through the window, as well as when she took the painting off the wall.

  • Season 2 Episode 20: Beyond the Call

  • When Colonel Banning reprimands the Air Force security police guard, he addresses him as "Private". Air Force personnel below the rank of sergeant are referred to as "Airman". This is a serious gaffe for a senior Air Force officer.

  • Jaime tells John that they're flying into their wilderness site by chopper because she "has some pretty unpleasant memories of parachutes." This means that some of her memories have come back since the series premiere, where she remembers nothing of the plane she jumped from, or the accident itself. Having said that, the only time in the series it is mentioned that her memories have returned is in the first reunion movie, where a concussion from an explosion jarred her memories.

  • Season 2 Episode 19: Jaime and the King

  • In Monte Carlo, after Jaime bends the table umbrella so that his view of the pretty, bikini-clad girls is blocked, Oscar says to her, "I'm gonna get you for this." His lips, however, say something completely different.

  • Season 2 Episode 18: Deadly Ringer (2)

  • When Jaime is on the run after escaping from prison, she has a rather nasty encounter with a quicksand bog. She escapes from that, and as one would expect, she's all covered in mire and goop. However, when she starts running again after this, she's miraculously clean again.

  • When Jaime is on the run with the prison guards and hound dogs in tow, she stops off at a fenced in warehouse area to use a phone to call Oscar. When she reaches to pick up the receiver, we can clearly see two small scabs on her right (bionic) hand.

  • Season 2 Episode 17: Deadly Ringer (1)

  • Two men show up at Jaime's place (a second-story apartment in a 2000 sq ft. structure) and use two small cannisters of gas to force her into unconsciousness. Problems: The cannisters are too small to fill that large a space (especially when she's on the second floor), and the crooks make no attempt to shield themselves from the gas when they enter to kidnap her (no masks, no hands over faces, nothing).

  • Season 2 Episode 14: Biofeedback

  • When Jaime first encounters Darwin in Rudy's lab, she thinks he's dead, but the actor can be seen to swallow.

  • Biofeedback is NOT "raising one's level of awareness to a point where you can focus inside yourself on one specific muscle...and increase, or decrease, its activity." It's actually a scientific fad from the 60s/70s using machines (mostly the oscilloscope) to view or hear involuntary and/or unconscious body processes (such as heart rate, brain waves, etc.), with the goal of learning to control them consciously. It had nothing to do with meditation or monks in Tibet. (Researchers don't use Biofeedback anymore because they found that the same goals could be achieved using meditation, so there's no need for expensive equipment.)

  • Season 2 Episode 13: Jaime's Shield (2)

  • When the four police officers show up at the fake call (the set up to kill Jaime, among other things), the two teams split up so that Arlene and Jaime are together! No Sgt in his/her right mind would separate so that two Rookies are alone together on a call. They'd break off as Veteran/Rookie teams.

  • When Jaime runs down the purse snatcher/mugger, she has to do some quick thinking to explain why he would commit a crime using a bent switchblade knife (she bionically bent it when it threatened her). She tells her partner, Bob, that it's just made of tin and bends it in front of his eyes. Makes sense so far, but then she tosses it into the alley and they walk away with their suspect! The judge is certainly gonna wonder why the arresting officers threw out the most important piece of evidence in the crime!

  • When Sgt. Welton escapes and dashes off to rescue Jaime from the warehouse, he has no idea what he's getting himself into, but makes no effort to use the motorcycle radio to call for help. For all he knows, Jaime is being held by dozens of captors, however, he runs around screaming her name as if he's fully aware that she's alone and incapacitated.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: Jaime's Shield (1)

  • How many police academies have access to such elaborate fake streets/neighborhoods to do their Final Exams? This was obviously just part of the set where the television show was taped.

  • An aerial view of the obstacle course shows that Jaime is driving on a blacktop road, but the wide shot and inside view from the car show a parking lot (blacktop, but with dozens of parking spaces in white paint).

  • Season 2 Episode 11: The Vega Influence

  • If Jaime wanted to stop the "zombies" from loading the meteroite onto the plane and flying off with it, why didn't she just run over, jump up on a wing, and bend one of the propeller arms beyond repair? That would've stopped them at least long enough to get the fire truck and the liquid CO2.

  • If Laurie Boylin had been deaf for 4 years as she said, her speech would not been as perfect as it is. Within a very short period of time, speech becomes affected by the distinctive in-the-throat sounds that deaf people make... especially if they are part of the small percentage who lose all of their hearing.

  • In the opening scene on the plane, Michael brings Jaime a styrofoam cup. The way Lindsay Wagner holds and tilts the cup, it's obviously empty.

  • Season 2 Episode 10: Sister Jaime

  • As Jaime rights the "old car" she placed in front of the Convent gate so that the Bishop's car can enter, a shadow of the camera and several crew members is clearly visible on the ground in the center of the shot.
