The majority of these nitpicks were discovered by DarkAngel2019 and Melas X6 784 and posted at What are nitpicks? Well, according to DarkAngel2019 from

What are Nitpicks: the dictionary definition of nitpicks is To be concerned with or find fault with insignificant details
Why find Nitpicks: simply cause it's so d*mn FUN!
Where do I find Nitpicks: theoretically you can find nitpicks in everything. from a TV show to any movie but technically you will prob. only spot some and ignore others or not spot them at all.
When do I find Nitpicks: when you pay REALLY close attention to details and usualy it is not in the first view of the episode/movie but on the 3 or 4th time.

2.03 Proof Of Purchase
*When Max tastes Logan's sauce and puts the wood spoon back in the sauce pan you can clearly see something black in the sauce (black olives maybe??) but then when she takes it all and spills it in the sink there is no trace on this black 'things' that were so obvious before.

*While Alec is in the cage White walks away. Alec gets up and you can see his hand on the cage bars. Shot changes and only then you see him raising his hand to touch the cage.

2.04 Radar Love
*When Joshua meets O.C. for the first time O.C. is wearing a red-orange robe and purple underwear. When she sees Josh she closes the robe. We see a close up on O.C. with the robe closed well. Shot changes and the robe is a little open and you can see her purple top. Shot changes again the robe is closed again. Shot changes to her and Joshua handshaking and the robe is a little open again… and so on several times.

*When O.C. Max & Joshua are eating breakfast you see O.C. reaching for the tea pot with both hands. Shot changes and only her right hand is reaching for the tea pot and then she raises her left hand…

*When a guest is checking in in the Chinese motel you can see he has 2 suitcases. He's holding a silver suitcase in his left hand and a light brown suitcase in the right hand. Shot changes and the silver suitcase is not in the right hand and brown in the left hand. (this is a 'don't blink' nitpick…)

2.05 Boo
*When Max & O.C. are waiting for the light to change on the wide shot Max has both Hands in her Jacket pocket but on a close up only one hand is in the pocket.

*In the restaurant Normal is holding a newspaper in his hand. After he sneezes watch as the newspaper moves from his hand to under his armpit to his hand again.

2.06 Two
When Max & Logan are talking about getting Joshua out of jail you can see behind Logan 4 shelves. On the close up of Logan there is nothing on the lower shelf but on the wide shot of Logan there is something there…

2.07 Some Assembly Required
*When O.C. called Sketchy he leans with his body on the lockers and on his hand that is right about his chest, but on the close up his hand is free and right up his face.

*Check out Lux's Hand when she's eating. When Eddie asks her about Crash her hand is down but on a close up her hand is up on the couch.

*Dr. Carr looks at Zack's eye with a little flashlight and then puts it in his pocket. Shot changes to Zack getting up and Dr. Carr puts the flashlight in his pocket again…

*When Eddie asks his guys if Max was with anyone in Crash both his hands are on his waist, but then the shot changes to a wide shot and one hand is kinda in his pocket and the other one on his stomach.

*In the parking lot Zack shoots at the door and window Logan went thou. From the shot behind Zack you can see the door glass and both the windows glass braking and falling off then you get a close up on the glass and the left window brakes AGAIN… then Zack goes thou the door and the window that broke twice now only has a big hole in it and not totally broken.

*The guy that falls when Zack is shooting at Logan falls with his face towards Zack but in the next shot his face is towards the door.

*Zack's gun falls right next to the soap on the floor but when he picks it up again the gun is IN the soap.

2.08 Gill Girl
When Max talks to O.C. about Logan she says: 'how did Logan pick it up again' but if you look closely she doesn't say the word 'again'. This is an add-on after the scene was shot.

2.09 Medium Is the Message
*On a close up you can see that Joshua hits the painting with the brown color right in the eye but when Joshua tries to clean it with the newspaper you can see that the paint is around the character's face and nowhere near the eye.

*The envelope Alec is holding is open but on a close up you can see it's left side it closed a little.

2.10 Brainiac
*Brain is messing around with Logan's stuff and when Max freezes his picture his hands are all over the buttons, then the shot changes to Max and Brain's hands are crossed.

*In jail when Max comes for Brain he steps down from the bars while leaning on the wall them he leaves the wall, shot changes and he's still touching the wall.

*When Max takes Brain on the bike and he's reading this poem CIA trick. he's reading it while she's driving and the paper doesn't even move an inch.. if you look you see Jessica's hair on the left side moving all over the place from the wind but the paper doesn't move... no way the paper can stay so strait like that in such a wind!

*When max and Alec find the police trick poem inside the poem book Max puts it back but in Asha's address book. But when they're hiding Asha finds the poem back in the poem book.

*The TVs in Brains apartment are not synchronized so when Eyes Only makes his cable hack you can hear like an echoing because each T.V. is a little late then the other but when Brain's picture comes on, all the screens seem to be perfectly synchronized and the picture runs on the exact same time.

2.11 The Berrisford Agenda
*While Normal and Alec are talking Alec reaches with his hand to get something out of Normal's table. Shot changes and he's just leaning on the wall.

*At Crash while Max is talking to Alec he puts his glass down then on the next shot the glass is in his hand again

2.12 Borrowed Time

*When Asha is sleeping she's got one hand under her head. Shot changes and her hand is now just beside her. Shot changes again and her hand is under her head… again.

*When that dude in the junkyard talks to Alec in the end and play fetch with the gossamer, there is a part when the gossamer comes back with a little piece of metal in his "mouth", the junkyard dude takes the piece and throws it again, the pix changes to the gossamer fetching and u see that the part that that guy throw is now a hub-cap. the piece the gossamer gave the guy was a little busted piece of metal and this is a big round piece of plastic...

2.14 Love in Vein
*When Normal picks up the package he throw at O.C. he comes from the area of his office where they have a little drink cooler but when the shot changes to him picking it his back is to the Lockers.

*When Joshua puts on the helmet he takes his hands off. Shot changes and he's touching the helmet.

2.15 Fuhgeddaboudit
*When Mia and Dougie are in the car Mia gives Dougie a paper bag cause he's about to hyperventilate. Dougie takes the bag and starts breathing into it then takes it off to talk to Mia. Shot changes and we see Dougie still talking but the paper bag is still on his mouth.

*In Medium is the Message Logan tells Max he's helping the 'Olsen's' find there kid... meaning that Wendy identified herself as Wendy Olsen and even later in there actual meeting she told Logan: 'I go by my maiden name, Olsen. Ray goes by my husband’s last name, which is White'. but when she calls Logan in Exposure she identifies as Wendy White.

2.17 Hello, Goodbye
*Why is Max so out of breath when coming out of Joshua's house? Supposedly she can hold her breath for 4 min AT LEAST. And getting out of Joshua's house shouldn't even take over a minute.

They designed her to be the perfect soldier, a human weapon, than she escaped. In a future not far from now, in a broken world, she is haunted by her past. She cannot run, she must fight to discover her destiny.

There's a messup in writing in Season One- small thing in '411 on the DL'- Max says she has waited nine years to see/find her brother when the escape was ten years prior... 2009/2019.
It's little but really obvious...
" When you think you see me I'm not there because you left me behind"

An alternate ending for AJBAC, all because of one thing, Logan is captured by Manticore while Max got away. Inside of Manticore, struggling to hold onto his sanity, his identity, Logan has nowhere to hide. Will he survive to escape, or will Lydecker destroy him first?
