Young at Heart - S1-E16

New this week Audio problem: The first scene following the intro, when Mulder and Scully step out of the car, Scully says, "I still don't get it" but her mouth doesn't move.

The End - S5-E20

New this month Continuity mistake: This is probably one of the most intriguing chess plays in the history of mankind. In the first move shown on the screen Gibson moves a white knight from e4 to f6. Then, in the close-up, the situation on the chessboard more or less corresponds to the arrangement of the figures previously shown on the screen. However, in the next shot, when we see the chessboard from the Russian perspective, the arrangement is completely different. Especially, there is no white knight on the chessboard at all. In the following shot the white rook suddenly appears on g8 (and is subsequently beaten by the black king), but in the next move Gibson again moves his white rook on g8, while the black king has miraculously returned to h8 and again beats the white rook. Moreover, Gibson could not play two white rooks, because later on we see that there is still at least one white rook on the chessboard.

The End - S5-E20

New this month Plot hole: Mulder asks Spender to rewind the tape to the crucial moment on the video, however he could not have seen that moment, because he entered the meeting too late to watch it.

The End - S5-E20

New this month Other mistake: In order to leave such bloody footprints, CSM must have stepped into the puddle of blood. It is impossible because the guy shot by CSM could not bleed so much blood in such short time, not mentioning that CSM must have intentionally stepped into it.

The End - S5-E20

New this month Continuity mistake: The chessboard was knocked down by the falling Russian, however in the next shot it is still on the table.

All Souls - S5-E17

New this month Plot hole: It is quite incomprehensible that only Mulder drew Scully's attention to the inverted cross. As a Catholic and experienced investigator Scully would know the significance of this symbol and would pay attention to such crucial detail.

All Souls - S5-E17

New this month Continuity mistake: When Dara walks toward the angel, there is only one car, parked on the right side of the street, but when her father approaches her, there is another car parked on the opposite side of the street.

Unrequited - S4-E16

New this month Continuity mistake: When Scully and Mulder run away from the dogs, the gate is fully open, while in the previous and next shot only the door is open. Plus their car standing in front of the gate is missing.

Kaddish - S4-E15

New this month Continuity mistake: The wedding ring Ariel is holding in her outstretched hand is either vertically protruding from the palm of her hand or is hidden inside of it, depending on the shot.

Memento Mori - S4-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: While Mulder's waiting for Langly and Frohike to unlock the exit door, Gray-Haired Man keeps shooting at the glass door, and the increasing bullet damage on the glass doesn't stay consistent as more damage occurs, and changes between the closeups and wideshots.

Super Grover

Memento Mori - S4-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Byers find Scully in Penny's room, there is a black stripe on the ceiling of the corridor, while in the scene when Scully is leaving the room there is no stripe there.

Never Again - S4-E13

New this month Continuity mistake: In the front shot Scully holds the photo with 2 fingers (thumb and index), while in the back shot she uses three fingers (thumb, index, and middle).

End Game (2) - S2-E17

New this month Factual error: In the opening sequence, we see a nuclear attack submarine beneath the ice in the Arctic, and we see a screen blurb that says, "USS Allegiance, Cruising Depth 1,000 Feet." We are told that this vessel is on a cartography mission (mapping the ocean floor with sonar, a fairly mundane assignment for a nuclear attack sub). In reality, for peacetime missions such as this, the standard cruising depth of a U.S. Navy nuclear attack submarine is 650 feet. Also, when the captain orders the ship to surface, one of the crewmen mutters, "Surface to what? We're under 32 feet of glacial ice!" Except that they're not under "glacial ice," they're under Arctic sea ice, which ranges from about 6 feet thick in the summer to about 15 feet thick in the winter.

Bad Blood - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: I don't know if this is visible in all formats, but on the newest UK release on DVD, watching in widescreen, it's amazingly obvious. When Mulder recovers from the vampire attack, he gets up from the floor and breaks up a chair to make a stake. There is a shot of his feet as he smashes the legs off and bends to pick up a piece. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see a crew member's hand carefully and quickly placing a piece of wood on top of the pile for Mulder to pick up.

Signs and Wonders - S7-E9

Visible crew/equipment: A mic boom operator is visible on the left hand side of the screen wearing a white t-shirt, beige shorts, and sneakers. He's carrying the boom mic and following Mulder and Scully. You can see him when Mulder and Scully arrive at the "Church of God with Signs and Wonders" for the first time...when Mulder delivers the line "That's funny, I knew a couple Catholic schoolgirls who were experts at it."

Ascension (2) - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Mulder is in the Tram car ascending the Mountain, to rescue Scully, he pulls all of the things out of under the top left-hand seat, but when the scene moves to Krycek in the booth, you don't see any of the thing that Mulder threw out.

Shadows - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder and Scully are talking about Howard Graves faking his own death, when they get to the bottom of the stairs, you can see the pole which the camera used to travel down the stairs.

Chaz1003

Shadows - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Howard Graves' tombstone states that he died on the 5th of October, but the opening scenes date stamp says the 22nd of September when it was supposed to be two weeks after Graves had died.

Fallen Angel - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Mulder helps Max lie down he notices the scar behind his right ear but when he tells Scully about it later he says that the scar is behind his left ear.

Ghost in the Machine - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: While the computer is being infected with the virus, Peterson turns away from the screen to face Scully. Two seconds later, after the shot of Scully, the same shot is shown again but in reverse so that Peterson turns back to the screen. It's more obvious if you look at the weird way his eyes blink in the reversed shot.
