After a successful case in which he defended a stripper named Mysti, the Colorado Bar Association began scrutinizing his background.His rival and friend Alan Connor then betrayed him by sending the CBA an incriminating email, revealing that Jeff did not receive a bachelor's degree from Columbia University but, in fact, got one that was "less than legitimate" and "better than real" from the country of Colombia.
The "Nash Bridges " website had a page where viewers could list the little inconsistancies they spotted. There is a study guide for “Dante’s Inferno” that discusses the accuracy of the science in the movie.
But the Insignia they used on the show was that of a Marine/Army/Air Force Captain. That insignia is the rank of a Navy Lt (Lieutenant).
I’ve seen that more then once in other movies/Tv shows.
@Mikein NH: I agree 100% And since fiction, especially good sci-fi is an exercise in suspension of disbelief for a while, it spoils it for me when something is so grossly inaccurate or silly.
Examples would be fax tones for a dial-up modem, something powered by a 9-volt battery exploding in sparks when broken, someone picking a door lock in 4 seconds with a paper clip, hot-wiring a car by ripping down 2 random wires from under the dash and sparking them together, never mind steering wheel locks, etc. I think the more you treat people as ignorant, the more ignorant they eventually become.
