The X-Files

Tithonus - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Malcolm Wiggins stabs Alfred Fellig in the back three times, including once in the middle of his back to the right of his spine. However, when Scully is examining Fellig's back later in the episode, he has at least six stab wounds, and all of them are around his shoulder blades.

Serious B

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder is driving away from the gas station, crew members as well as some filming equipment can be seen reflected in the car's body. Mulder is in a pretty desolate area, so seeing people reflected in the car's body would in all likelihood be crew members and not random citizens.

Serious B

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When Mulder - whilst trapped in the body of Morris Fletcher - is doing various poses in front of the mirror, several of his movements and the corresponding movements from the realized reflection of Morris Fletcher are slightly out of sync with each other.

Serious B

Travelers - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Young Arthur Dales has a cleft chin, but old Arthur Dales does not.

Serious B

Kitsunegari - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Scully pries open the mouth of the man who died from being forced to ingest paint, his eyes twitch.

Serious B

Detour - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: When Agent Kinsley finds Mulder and Scully in the hole, you can tell the forest background behind him is a blue screen because he has a white outline around his head, particularly noticeable by his hair, making him look very superimposed.

Shadows - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Just as Mulder and Scully are entering the interrogation room to question Lauren for the second time, Mulder is holding a thin stack of paper, folded in half in his right hand. In one shot, these are folded horizontally. In the immediate next shot, they are now folded vertically.

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Clyde Bruckman commits suicide by placing a plastic bag over his head until he asphyxiates. However, when Mulder and Scully first discover him you can see in the shot just before Scully holds his hands that there is no plastic bag around his head (may only be visible in widescreen format).

Serious B

Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Mulder and Scully discover Clyde's dead body, if you look closely you can see Clyde's left eye twitching.

Serious B

Pusher - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Agent Frank Burst screams "Stop!", but in the previous shot the police car was already stopped, although deputy Scott Kerber has just pushed the accelerator.

Apocrypha (2) - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: After the crash Mulder rests his head on the passenger dashboard, however in the previous shot filmed from the outside he keeps it on the headrest.

Syzygy - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: While hugging detective White, in the first shot Mulder's tie covers his shirt's collar, but in the next shots the tie is hidden under the collar.

War of the Coprophages - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: The bug exterminator squeezes his throat with either left or right hand depending on the shot.

Revelations - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When filmed from the inside of the basket, the openings in the basket structure are big enough to put a finger into it, while in the outside shot the structure is compact and dense.

731 (2) - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As the camera flies over the train, in the upper right corner of the screen there is some equipment and umbrella visible that are not likely to just be in the middle of nowhere - probably filming equipment. In the next shot they are gone.

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: The guy who is jumping to the water is definitely not Mulder. It is a stunt.

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Mulder jumps down by the fence in two configurations: one when he is filmed with a closeup (left side), and the other while he is filmed from the distance just a moment after (right side).

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Other mistake: It seems that the first round fired by the hit squad destroys the camera or its power supply unit, because the satellite transmission is interrupted exactly at the moment the squad enters the train car. However, the members of the squad firstly shoot in the glass and then at the doctors.

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the start, the train on the track adjacent to the train car's track is either moving or not, depending on the shot.

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Plot hole: The guy who was standing at the back of the train car was somehow able to move to the front of it. This was impossible because the train car was sealed and no unauthorized person could enter it.
