Fresh Bones - S2-E15

New this month Continuity mistake: In one shot near the start the private is turning the steering wheel while in the previous and next shot he holds the wheel fast with his arms outstretched.

Die Hand die Verletzt - S2-E14

New this month Factual error: The loss of blood Shannon suffered was definitely insufficient to be the cause of her death.

Excelsis Dei - S2-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: When the nurse takes off the bedding, the sheet is crumpled, but in the next shot it is suddenly pretty straightened and smooth.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Scully goes to Mulder's room, thinking she has the marks, after he has checked her we see Scully's hair is behind her collar, but when the shot changes to her going to sit down, her hair is now hanging out.

Chaz1003

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.

Demons - S4-E23

Visible crew/equipment: As Fox is being led into the jail, when Scully says, "Mulder" the boom mic is at the top of the screen, while she's walking towards him.

One Breath - S2-E8

Deliberate mistake: When Scully is shown on her hospital bed, it's obvious she's wearing a bra under her hospital gown. It's doubtful that a patient in a coma would be wearing a bra as it could restrict her circulation.

Grumpy Scot

Arcadia - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully are moving into the house, there is a shot of Mulder's watchface which reads that the date is the 7th. A few minutes later, Scully is walking around with a video camera, and narrating and she says the date is February the 24th.

Synchrony - S4-E19

Plot hole: Scully's statement that she was 23 when she wrote her senior thesis in college throws off her timeline of college, med school, residency, FBI Academy, Quantico teaching assignment for two years, and X-Files assignment at 28. Her undergraduate degree in Physics should have been completed when she was 20 or 21 to allow at least 4 or 5 years for her medical training.

The X-Files mistake picture

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The first time Scully walks into Mulder's office, we see his "I want to Believe" poster in full view. Later on in the scene, we see papers stacked in front of it.

Syzygy - S3-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Scully says "This is rumor panic" you see the camera shadow following her on the lower left side of screen.
