Factual errors 

The pilot for 'The Americans' starts off with historically inaccurate information. Two guys are talking about some tough guy who allegedly took out 4 Olympic Japanese judo players in a bar fight. And the other guy says "Which year? Because The Japanese didn't medal in Judo from 1964 to 1972.".... In fact the Japanese won 3 gold medals in 1964, skipped the Mexico City Olympics in 1968, then won 3 more gold medals in 1972, and 1 bronze.
