Smallville

Skinwalker - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Joseph, Kyla and Clark are at the Talon, in the scene after Joseph is bailed out of jail. Martha comes in and walks over to the three of them. The next shot has her stopped next to Clark, with no forward movement to indicate she is still walking to him. In the shot after that she is still walking up to Clark.

Heat - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Clark decides to stay home from school because he cannot control his heat vision, his father decides to have a talk with him. Jonathan pulls his son to face him and them places both his hands on Clark's shoulders. Cut to a different angle as Jonathan says: 'Clark, look at me…' but now we see his left hand on Clark's neck. Cut back to the previous angle and his hands are on Clark's shoulders again.

Heat - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Jonathan goes to talk to Desiree, Jonathan throws Desiree a bathrobe. She then proceeds to put it on and lifts her right hand over her head as she does so. Cut to a different angle and now she is raising her right hand over her head once again.

Fever - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Martha is in the kitchen and starts having a coughing fit from the toxin, she drops the pitcher of lemonade. The pitcher lands on its side and breaks, but in the next shot, the broken base is positioned upright, sitting level on the floor, the jagged broken edges waiting to impale Martha.

Slumber - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Clark goes to give the flowers to Sarah, her uncle answers the door. The first shot is of the uncle through a flyscreen door, which he opens. We then see a shot of Clark outside the door, and then the uncle opens the flyscreen door a second time.

Skinwalker - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Lex is talking to Lionel outside the building site at the end, Lex's sunglasses disappear while the camera is on Lionel and reappear when back on Lex. This happens after Lionel turns to face slightly behind Lex and continues throughout the rest of that exchange.

Truth - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Lex whispers into his father's ear something about keeping secrets. At first the view is of him less than an inch away from his ear. In the next shot he's at least six inches away.

Redux - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: As Clark walks into his grandfather's motel room, his hands are behind his back. He turns to face his grandfather and both hands are now in front of him holding the photo album. The next shot shows him in the foreground raising his left arm from his side to hold the album.

Duplicity - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Pete first finds the ship, there are only three cornstalks between it and the van. Later when he shows it to Clark, there are many more stalks.

Crush - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: As Chloe is running away from Justin in the barn, he looks to his right and sees a horseshoe nailed to a post. He throws the horseshoe at Chloe and hits her on the opposite side of her head from where the horseshoe was before.

Hug - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Kyle first confronts Rickman in his office and challenges him to a handshake, Rickman looks away. In the next shot on Kyle, Rickman is looking at him again.

Shimmer - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: As Clark first walks up to Whitney in study hall, Clark's arm changes from bent to straight at his side.

Metamorphosis - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: While researching Greg with Chloe, Clark changes from one hand on the computer mouse to arms crossed and back.

Pilot - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: Clark's CPR form is terrible. When he performs emergency breaths on Lex, Lex's chest doesn't rise and fall, indicating that he's not actually breathing much air in. He doesn't bother to measure for the proper location for chest compressions, a very important step that is the difference between proper CPR and simply cracking ribs. As he performs compressions, he is not chanting the rhythm (one-and-two-and-three) and his elbows are bent. All of these were altered for dramatic reasons or the purpose of safety, but the sloppy technique probably would have killed Lex.

Vortex (2) - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Clark and Lex are searching for Clark's dad, right after Clark gets mad at Lex and leaves it shows a head shot of Lex with the bandage over his left eye. In the beginning of the show he was injured over his right eye.

Season 4 generally

Plot hole: In the episode Onyx, Lex's alter ego holds him hostage in the wine cellar claiming that when they were kids, Lex accidentally got locked in down there. In the pilot episode, it is established that although Lionel had the castle shipped over from Scotland brick by brick and built, they never moved into it.

Duplicity - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Pete confronts Clark about the missing space ship in his tool shed, Pete gets into his car and we see Clark put his right hand on the door of Pete's car. Cut to a different angle as Pete drives away but now Clark's hand is no longer on the door.

Visage - S2-E11

Other mistake: When the Marine officer comes to Whitneys house, he introduces himself as Lt. McNulty, but he is wearing the insignia of a Captain.

Noir - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, we see that the clock reads 2 o'clock. Jimmy then takes Chloe into the back room to his set-up movie date. A little into the scene, they then hear a gunshot. When they rush out, the clock now reads 4:15. However Chloe and Jimmy were not in the back room for this long. At 4:15 they find Lana shot, and call 911. Then after the credits, we return to the scene, but now the police have arrived. But now the clock reads 2:15. There is no way the police would have taken so long, that the clock would have jumped all the way around from 4:15 to 2:15, therefore the continuity on this clock is mixed up.

Nemesis - S6-E19

Visible crew/equipment: After Clark and Lex get out of the tunnels, and the explosions follow them out, we see Lana and Chloe arrive in a dark car. When they get out of the car, the cameraman can be seen reflected in the door.

Trivia

Clark always wears blue and red clothes (or at least one of these colors). No surprise that when he got his Superman costume, he chose those same colors.
