M*A*S*H

Patient 4077 - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When the boys are working on the vascular clamp, Charles brings out three hard boiled eggs. After he heckles BJ and Hawkeye for a minute, BJ takes the hammer, and smashes Charles' eggs. The camera cuts to the boys, and back to Charles. There are now two eggs, and almost intact.

The Grim Reaper - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In Margaret's tent, when Charles is toasting Margaret, his hand alternates positions between the close ups, and the wide shots. In the close ups, he's holding the wine glass by the bowl. In the wide shots, he's holding it by the stem.

Movie Nut

Fallen Idol - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: Look at the stains on Winchester's clothes in the O.R. sessions. Both times the stains match. There would be different stains because of the cleaning process.

Movie Nut

M*A*S*H - The Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Hawkeye has Lt. Dish draw the winner of the raffle, he turns the bottom of the glass towards the crowd - meaning they would be able to see Lt. Dish pick the raffle ticket that has been taped to the bottom of the glass, just like the audience does.

Doc

End Run - S5-E17

Audio problem: During the fight in Rosie's bar, a soldier is punched, and then thrown through the opaque window with the wood frame behind him. There is a sound of breaking glass accompanying the motion, but you can see the torn paper.

Movie Nut

Movie Tonight - S5-E21

Audio problem: When the bulb in the projector goes out, Klinger is trying to fix it. People throw popcorn at him, saying "Find it!" After Potter says "Hit it, Father!", watch Klinger. From the wide shot to the close up, you hear him say "The bulb is hot!", but his lips don't move.

Movie Nut

The General's Practitioner - S5-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When the Colonel that Hawkeye referred to as "Bozo" is talking to General Korso on the way to the 4077th to get Hawkeye, you can see the shadow of the camera on the Colonel's lap.

Movie Nut

The Most Unforgettable Characters - S5-E14

Other mistake: After Klinger douses himself with real gas (Potter determined that Klinger's can only had water in it, and told Radar to switch the can for real gas), and runs into the shower tent, you hear a nurse scream, and see her run out. When the door is open, there are no stalls to be seen. From all scenes shot inside the tent, you know that the stalls are big enough to be easily seen from the outside.

Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: After a distant aerial shot of Potter's chopper, the camera closes in for a close up. When in the distance, the rotors are running full speed. In the close up, they are barely running, just enough to make the familiar whooshing sound. The chopper that they are in is being raised and lowered to simulate flight. Also, if you look in the canopy in front of Potter, you can see the camera and crew's reflection. Then when the chopper is over the building, the sound of the blades is still the slow moving whooshing mentioned earlier, instead of the full power sound it should be.

Some 38th Parallels - S4-E19

Visible crew/equipment: As BJ comes around to take the wounded soldier to Post-Op, he walks in front of the camera. As he does so, the shadow of the camera can be seen on his back.

Movie Nut

It Happened One Night - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: When Hawkeye and Margaret turn toward the stove, and he says "Are you hungry?", watch the can. Though it is meant to look like it blew the top off, it is plain that the top was just set into the top, and a blast of air was used to blow it open. This is because of the sound, and a stream of vapor that often accompanies a blast from an air gun. A sealed can set on a heat source would have burst not only from the top, but also from the side at a seam, or the bottom. Also, they were about five feet away from the can, and the beans went up, not out at a ninety degree angle. So they wouldn't get beaned. Beans on the face were for comic effect.

Movie Nut

Welcome to Korea (60 mins.) - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When BJ, Hawkeye and Radar are being shot at, they hurry to get in the jeep. Radar gets out to get the jack, and salutes it. When the camera cuts to a shot of Radar getting back in, the jack is magically gone. It doesn't appear again.

Movie Nut

The Consultant - S3-E17

Audio problem: At the end when Borelli is getting ready to take off, in the close ups you can see the main rotor blades starting to turn, getting ready to fly. But the sound suggests that the rotors and engine are already at full power.

Movie Nut

The Chosen People - S2-E19

Audio problem: Toward the end, after it's determined that Radar isn't the baby's father, there is a vehicle horn honking. When the camera shot goes outside, the sound of the horn is a few notes higher that when heard inside.

Movie Nut

The Chosen People - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Henry is shaving, he hears a knock at the door. After he says "Come in", the door opens and a cow comes in. Trouble is, the door normally opens outwards, but for the gag to work, this time it opens inwards.

Movie Nut

The Sniper - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Henry is talking to a general on the phone when the chopper is coming in. He's trying to tell the man that he can't hear him. As he continues trying to talk, he gives up, and hangs the receiver up on the skeleton's head. If you look, you can see the hook that was conveniently placed for the gag.

Movie Nut

I Hate A Mystery - S1-E10

Plot hole: Hawkeye calls a number of people into the mess tent over the PA - the ones he allegedly suspects of being behind the thefts he is suspected of himself. Interestingly enough, Ho Jon, later revealed to be the guilty party, is not on Hawkeye's list - yet he shows up uninvited, just to be ensnared by Hawk's clever ploy. Note also that he had no way of knowing what the purpose of the meeting was, so we cannot ascribe to him the motive of wanting to find out how much Hawkeye knew.

Doc

Heroes - S10-E18

Continuity mistake: As Col. Potter toasts the champ, his glass jumps from the table into his hand with the cut from side view to frontal.

Doc

The Kids - S4-E8

Plot hole: When the truck with the orphans arrives, Col. Potter and Nurse Cratty greet each other like one would an old friend. Being new to Korea, Col. Potter doesn't know Nurse Cratty - as becomes clear from his reaction to Hawkeye's explanation to BJ earlier (who doesn't know Nurse Cratty for the same reason, but that's not relevant for this mistake). Note that in other parts of the series Col. Potter is depicted mostly as somewhat old-fashioned and reserved towards strangers.

Show generally

Factual error: Throughout the series, actors are seen wearing cuffless permapress fatigues. Neither cuffless nor permapress utilities were available until the 1970s.
