Best TV mistakes of 1997

Halloween - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Willow is turned into a ghost. Throughout the entire episode, she can't touch anything (can't turn the pages of a book, etc.), yet towards the end when she and Giles go to Ethan's shop, and she leaves, you can hear that she opened and closed the door, even though she can walk through walls and can't actually touch the door. The curtain moves when she leaves too.

A Room with an Alan - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Alan views the kitchen, a boom mic shadow can be seen in the top left of the screen.

Cartman Gets an Anal Probe - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the classroom there is a poster of The Laughing Cavalier in the back wall in the class. In the last shot of that scene you can notice that the poster has disappeared and is replaced with an astronaut poster.

A Demon

Family - S2-E8

Plot hole: Huge plot error: Apophis and Clorell (Skara) should not have survived the explosion in Season 2, Episode 1 (when they attack Earth with two ships). In "Family" they explain that Apophis and Clorell survived by escaping through the stargate aboard Clorell's ship moments after Daniel Jackson did the same. However, when Daniel Jackson escapes through it, Apophis and Clorell are not even on the right ship, and there is 1 second left on the C4 timer when Daniel escapes. They actually show Daniel Jackson escape, and then cut to Apophis and Clorell still aboard their ship. So apparently, Apophis was able to "ring" from his ship over to Clorell's ship, make it to the stargate room, dial an address, and escape through the stargate all within literally 1 second. Is this guy related to The Flash?

Boy Next Door - S3-E16

Plot hole: Throughout the show it is reported several times that Billy and Ally met when they were both eight years old in a park by sniffing each other's bottoms. However, when Billy is buried in season 3 his tombstone reads, 1968-2000, making him 32 years old. Ally is only 29 and does not turn 30 until later in that season which would at the very least, put them 2 years apart.

It's Not Easy Being Green - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When Hank goes to Bobby's class for "environmental court" and is sworn in, you see Bobby sitting at a large desk and to the right there is nothing next to it. The next shot there are now a few empty desks next to the large desk.

Lummie

Book Smart - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The word "Puritans" is written differently on the chalkboard between shots, in the scene where T.J. is discussing Puritans with Mr. Delk.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the first episode of season 10, when Marissa is holding a dog while talking to Elaine, the way her arm lies around the dog's neck changes several times between shots.

The New Kid - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, after King Bob declares Gus as the New Kid, the kids are cheering and TJ and friends have disappeared from the shot. Then Gus looks down in front of him and the guys are right there in front of him.

Mr. Jealousy - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Finch are talking about Vikki barging into the office, Jack is not wearing a vest, but in the next shot he is, and when he stands up it is gone again.

Decline - S1-E6

Audio problem: Almost all the newsroom links in this episode were redubbed, and at times the overdub falls entirely out of sync. When Austin Tasseltine begins speaking one of his lines before Morris has finished, the latter's "Belt up, will you?" is an ad-libbed response to this mistiming.

Danse Macabre - S2-E1

Plot hole: Why on earth would a sleazeball like Adam Klaus be worried about news of a one-night stand being revealed? He'd welcome the publicity, if anything. Anyone threatening to go to the papers with news of a bit of rumpy-pumpy with him would be wasting their time.

The Official Dharma & Greg Episode of the 1998 Winter Olympics - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: While the guys are talking about the winter Olympics, the position and level of the bottle keeps changing all through the scene.

Al Plays Hooky - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After the Squirmese chef sets up his additional ingredients, Corky answers the video phone. During Corky's conversation, Al's kitchen can be seen with no trace of the chef or his ingredients.

Blessed Are They (3) - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When Sheila Carlisle has hanged the dead head up on the wall of Eugene's office, they are all looking at it and the eyes are looking straight in to the room. Later in the episode, the eyes are looking more to the right.

Beck

Monstret - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: As the RCV enters the gravel field with the bomb, you can see a person in shorts walking casually in the background, despite the area being sealed off.

17

Daria

Arts 'n' Crass - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, the girl in Jane's painting rests her head on her hands. In her reflection, her hands are turned outward on her chin even though she is sitting there with her hands turned inward.

Beware the Creeper - S2-E10

Plot hole: During Ryder's report, as Bruce and company watch it on TV, the camera suddenly zooms in on Joker standing on a catwalk above Ryder, and none of the crew, especially not the camera man who caught the villain, makes a comment about this. They may have thought the Joker (or rather an impersonator) was perhaps a surprise gag in the show, but since this is supposed to be a serious documentary report, it is still strange that they wouldn't point it out.

The Bing That Wouldn't Leave / You Promised! - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In "The Bing That Wouldn't Leave" Bing often changes size. Most of the time he's about half as tall as Norbert and Daggett but most notably near the end when he hugs Daggett he's about the same size as him.

20

Lexx

Super Nova - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Stan, Zev and Kai are walking to the Memory Chamber, they seem to walk out of a two dimensional line at the lower left into the scene. The set and green screen weren't quite synched.
