White Collar "Bad Judgment" Nitpicks

Season 1, Episode 9 Air Date: January 26, 2010

When you watch a program over and over, you start to notice minor continuity issues, plot oversights and other goofs. This page is not intended to be a criticism aimed toward the show or anyone who works on White Collar. They produce a great show and should be proud of their work. That's why I titled it "Nitpicks" because to nitpick means "to be overly critical or criticize minor details." If it bothers you, please don't read them. This page is intended to be for people who love watching something and going "I never noticed that..."

Forged Signature: When Neal takes the clipboard from the delivery man, he doesn't sign upside down (which he said was the key to forging a signature. Wouldn't he be copying the secretary's signature on the document to ensure it's not traced back to him?

Radio Waves: Why couldn't the Burkes simply play a radio to drown out the sound (like they do in other movies)? Besides, what are they afraid Peter might reveal in his sleep?

Men in Black: Do FBI agents live in their suits or are they requried to wear them at the office, even if they are working off the clock in the middle of the night? All the FBI agents that arrive to help Peter are dressed up.
