Well, what I noticed was that the ocular heads were on backwards.  As
I recall this was the case both in the trailer at the dig in South
Dakota (?) and in the laboratory in "Jurassic Park" itself.  So my
question is: was that the only problem, or did other people notice
other things?  Like for example, were the condensers in the right
position?  I didn't pay any attention to that (I was there to see the
dinosaurs after all...)
