Season 6 Trivia

  • Episode 06 - Goof (continuity error): When Lana Farren is about to leave the hospital, she has a severe bruise under her right eye. When she arrives at the Tibbs house a short time later, the bruise is almost completely gone.
  • Episode 12 - Goof (plot holes): The pickup has a flat tire and when the man gets out and looks at his watch it is about 10:50 PM. He then walks at a regular pace on the street. The judge's clock strikes 1 AM just before the man shows up. Later, an officer says the truck was found 10 miles away from the Judge's house. T
  • Episode 13 - Goof (factual errors): The vehicle ID number Jamison reads to Parker was R7H3B90. That is too short for a post-1981 vehicle such as the Ford Taurus, which use 17 character numbers. Additionally, the plate shown had many more digits than the 7 that were read.
  • Episode 17 - Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): A character refers to "Sparta County High School" but Sparta is in Newton County.
  • Episode 13 - The restaurant used in this episode and other episodes is, in real life, called "Michaelangelo's"; which is on Railroad Street in Conyers, Ga. Carroll hosted numerous Cast and Crew Parties at this location. Actor Dan Biggers (Dr. Robb) still dines at this location once
