Revealing mistake: At the end of the opening credits, you can see Angel's reflection in the puddle on the floor. Since he is a vampire, this should not happen.

Lisa Black

Show generally

Plot hole: When both Gwen and Eve were in prison in January of 2005, Ethan was trying to get Theresa (whom Gwen had stabbed in the back) to drop the charge of attempted murder so that Gwen would be able to leave the prison. At the same time, Eve was being charged with three attempted murders, including that of Julian in 2001. But Julian loves Eve, and they have reconciled any differences they had three years ago, so why doesn't he also have the option to drop one charge of attempted murder?

Kansas (2) - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: After Scorpius tells Braca that the future of Peacekeeper survival depends on him, it cuts back to Earth and when the Sheriff says, "I got the warrant. Let's go search that house," as the car pulls away we can see a nice reflection of a crew member and the reflector screen.

Sixteen Going on Seventeen - S4-E16

Character mistake: Tai says "And it started to snow in the middle of July" but later you find out that it takes place on August first.

Ways and Means - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Doug, Toby, and Sam are talking to the President about how to handle the attempted appeal of the estate tax, they mention several times that it will be the President's first veto, and that it is something that he has never done before. However, in episode four of season two, "In this White House", in the scene where Sam is debating Ainsley Hayes on Capital Beat, the moderator asks why the President's education bill is different from the Republican proposed bill "which the President vetoed." So, the veto of the estate tax repeal was not the president's first.

Heads Of Beef / Klub Katz - S1-E11

Factual error: In "Klub Katz" the captian yells "Iceburg, Iceburg, on the starboard side." But when you see the iceburg and the ship, the iceburg was about to hit the bow of the ship.

Spaced

Ends - S1-E7

Factual error: When Mike is describing his attempted invasion of Paris to the TA officers, he mentions going on Space Mountain at Disneyland Paris. However, Mike says that it happened in 1994, which must be correct, as the officers in an important interview like this would pick him up on the inaccuracy. Space Mountain did not open until 1995.

Pattern Seventeen - S16-E9

Revealing mistake: When Amanda and Fin are in Atlanta following up on their rape case they walk past several cars with visible Georgia license plates mounted on the front. Georgia is a rear plate-only state, and wouldn't have had plates mounted on the front of the cars as shown here.

AD

The Book of Love - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Just after Sydney gets the book snatched from her by the guy in car, her hands stay near her body and don't move, but in the next shot her hands are thrown out to the side to add a surprised effect.

How The Elephant Got Its Trunk - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Papa Lazarou's black/brown and white face is supposed to be his real skin, however it is very different to his photograph.

Dan Moat

Do or Die - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: At the end it is not Helen against the filing cabinet - the face is different. Obviously a body double.

Happy Birthday, Kevin (or Happy Birthday, Douchebag) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: After Carlos sees the snake on the pole he leaps off the roof onto the pole. When he jumps you can see it's quite a distance from the roof. After catching the snake he is holding onto the pole and asks to be helped back onto the roof. The other characters just put their hands out and pull him up. There was no way with the distance between the pole and the roof they could have come close to reaching him the way they did.

Lummie
