    Default One glaring problem....

    The truck was clearly dripping engine coolant, not transmission fluid! A mid 90s Chev like that would have a 4l60E automatic transmission which contains a red Mecron/Dextron III hydraulic fluid!

    Well if the only "glaring problem" you can find, has to do with the colour of transmission fluid, then well done Writers!

    Then the writers did a wonderful job. Maybe it was a mistake and you have to use your "imagination".

    While I wouldn't call it a glaring problem, I certainly understand where you're coming from. Mistakes like that, even ones that most people wouldn't notice, can take you right out of the story. It's happened to me many times.

    Kudos for having such a keen eye, though.

    Well it is an alternate universe, maybe they used a different color transmission fluid in it, and that's why it was divergent from ours.

    LOL ...I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention.

    They could have said transmission fluid but my mind heard radiator coolant...which in my neck of the woods is a florescent green.

    from transcript:
    CRIME SCENE GUY: We've got radiator fluid down here. (He points to a wet patch on the ground.) Looks like the vehicle has a leak.

    Absolutely not. In all the time I have spent (about 10 minutes when I changed a brake light) working on vehicles and vehicular...stuff...I know conclusively that it was blinker fluid running down the over-head posiquad adjuster.

    It couldn't have been anything else.








    Just in case some didn't get it I was trying to be funny, sometimes I don't hit the mark.

    Rewatched it today. The cop said "radiator fluid." Looked like radiator fluid to me (and yes, I do know what radiator fluid looks like).

    Well, the stuff leaking out of my mom's car is red, so it must be an error.
