Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The Porsche that strikes Clark has no sign of impact when it goes over the side of the bridge.

Nikki

Carentan - S1-E3

Factual error: In this episode we see Blithe get shot in the neck and are told that he died in 1948. In reality he was shot in the shoulder and survived.

Reba

Reba Works for Brock - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Reba goes to work for Brock, BJ gives Reba a smiley face sticker. When Reba is talking BJ out of her insecurities, her smiley face sticker disappears from shot to shot.

8

Attila

Show generally

Factual error: Aetius' troops don't look anything like 5th century Roman soldiers. They are carrying a large rectangular shield, a pilum (a spear which was used for throwing) and a sword (gladius) on their right. This was typical for the Roman army until about the 3rd century A.D. In Aetius' time, the soldiers would have had smaller oval shields, a hasta (a lance used for stabbing and for fending off cavalry attacks) and a sword (spatha) on their left. Also, there would be an enormous amount of "barbarian" mercenaries in the Roman army (Goths, Vandals, even Huns.), so it was hardly a Roman army anymore. And where's Aetius' cavalry?

I'll Take You - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Brenda and Nate are arguing (on the verge of breaking up), the top of Brenda's sweater goes from folded over to laying flat a few times during the scene.

Ral0618

Downsize - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Gareth hits Tim on the head with his newspaper the following shot shows that the briefcase and newspaper have swapped hands.

Little Rock of Horror / Dream a Little Dream - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: In Dream a Little Dream when it shows Grim, Billy and Mandy eating the pizza, the box is empty. But when they wake up, there is one slice left.

The Catwalk - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: T'Pol says she has never been camping, but she went in "Strange New World."

Season 1 Episode 2 - S1-E2

Other mistake: At the start of the line dancing scene where Ray Von is deejaying, if you have the subtitles on, it says the song is Hillbilly Rock, Hillbilly Roll by the Woolpackers. It's actually 5,6,7,8 by Steps. (I'm quite embarrassed I know that).

The Terror - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Captain Liberty writes The Terror's phone number on the napkin we can plainly see that she is using a blue bic ballpoint pen - but when we get to see the napkin she had written the number on (again - second napkin) it was written by a felt-tip marker.

Badbird

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: Series 5 Episode 3 (Shrink): When Louise comes on screen to give Janet an ink blot test, one of the furry microphones can be seen at the top-centre of the screen.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When Emma gets into Jay's car for the first time, she has random braids in her hair. When she gets home and is talking to her parents, she has no braids. When she goes to the ravine, she has braids again.

II (The Samurai called Jack) - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Jack cuts the flying car's hood off, he slashes it vertically, but it is cut horizontally.

Piemanmoo

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 8, "Family Values": The Devildis family is in the kitchen together. When the daughter holds up a knife she has been using to chop vegetables she holds it to about chest level. The shot changes to a different front view of her and the knife has vanished.

Guy
Lizzie McGuire mistake picture

Rumors - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lizzie attempts to confess to Kate in the hallway she is wearing a red and white shirt with no bag. However in one shot from behind, you can see that there is a blue bag strap over her left shoulder. This is the same blue bag she can be seen wearing in later scenes.

Hamster

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode called "Mek Pek", when Casper and Niels are standing in front of the couch at Jump-Start, Casper is having his right hand in his back pocket, then the angle change, and suddenly his hand is in his right pocket.

Lazarus Syndrome - S1-E15

Visible crew/equipment: At the dance club when Caleb Mathias holds Emma, Brennan comes to the rescue with a few swift airborne kicks. During one particularly high kick, the lines attached to Brennan are in perfect view above him.

He Said, She Said - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Bug speaks with the beautiful widow the second time, about performing a noninvasive autopsy on her husband, her long hair continually changes position in the shots that face her.

Matt&Sarah@Gossip.com - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Matt and Sarah are in the kitchen (when Matt tells her about Jared) the spoon that's sticking out of the ice cream keeps moving around between shots.

Shay

Paradise Lost (2) - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Flash plays tag with Faust ("Now you see me, now you don't"), there is a brief shot in which he rushes at Faust - but not inside Hyppolita's palace, but in some high-tech laboratory. Obviously a shot from some earlier series, since the coloring and style are different from the Justice League's.

Daniel4646

All Apologies - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: During the scene with the family in the living room and Claudia and Lily are sitting on the covered couch, the sheet falls off the top of the couch. In subsequent shots the sheet falls off and goes back on the top through the whole scene.

The tiger is sitting on the floor and has just eaten its food. Penny is standing there next to the tiger, the camera goes to her mom for about two seconds, then it goes back on her and the food has returned in the bowl again. Then it's empty again.

Dirty Pool - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Tess is stuck in the mud with her car and Alex is helping her to get out, during their "fight" the mud on Tess' blouse changes a lot.

Landlord - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: At one point when Alan's phone rings (Nokia 8310) he answers it and talks to the caller yet it's obvious he isn't talking to anyone. He blatantly presses the red/cancel button to answer the call. The image hadn't been reversed though, because he pressed the exact same button to end the call.

Chimera

Disfigured Debbie - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: When Mr Klimer is forcing Debbie into the Oblong's car, her arms disappear for a single frame.
