Lost

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In numerous shots of individual characters, while on the island, the sweat stains on their clothing significantly and repeatedly change, or disappear and reappear between shots.

Numbers - S1-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Hurley is at the new house, after his mom hurts her ankle, he reaches into the car window to get the cell phone. When he begins to dial, the cameraman's arm moving about is reflected in the back chrome of the side view mirror.

Deux Ex Machina - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Jack speaks to Michael and Jin, as they build the raft, and then when he walks up the beach and inquires about Sawyer's trouble with his head, the backpack that Jack carries on his back is nylon, black/green with white trim. Yet, when Sawyer asks, "Sensitivity to light, that bad?" the backpack is suddenly transformed into a solid black leather, of an entirely different style. Then, in following shots it jumps back and forth.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Ray's pickup truck swerves off the road, it flips and the tailgate completely breaks off, yet in the following shots the bright red tailgate remains intact.

Eggtown - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: In Season 4 Episode 4, "Eggtown", when Kate and Sawyer start arguing, Sawyer's hair changes back and forth between shots from being parted to combed back.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Deliberate mistake: As Ray drives the pickup truck, an oncoming vehicle beeps and the marshal heads behind Ray's pickup. In the shot through the cab's rear window facing the bed, as the marshal pulls behind, the bed's side wall interior is seen (note the metal loop tie down on top) and the entire tailgate is gone; yet the tailgate is intact later, when the pickup flips over. The tailgate was removed for the shot to allow visibility of the marshal's vehicle.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the marshal and Ray drive their vehicles down the long road, the endless line of telephone poles are on their left as they drive, with barren land on their right. However, when they pass the third vehicle the poles are on their right and then repeatedly change sides in the following shots. (This has nothing to do with camera angles.)

What Kate Did - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: In the end of this episode when Kate and Sawyer have just left the hatch they see a black horse. In the first shot with the horse, on the far right of the screen you can see the trainer's hand with a black glove. HD widescreen only.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kate finds the pilot's wingpin in the mud, the pilot's reflection is seen in the water as he lies on the branches above Kate. When Jack approaches they all look up and in the overhead shot the pilot's position differs and he lies on different parts of the branches, note their shape.

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: While Jin is cuffed to the wreckage, Sun points to her wrist and explains in Korean, but Sayid shouts, "The cuffs stay on!" At the start of the next shot, a crewmember's arm is seen holding the reflector screen to Sawyer's left, as he makes a sarcastic comment.

Outlaws - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Sawyer shoots "Sawyer" there is a 15 ft tall grounded lamppost at the corner of the link fence, with an overhead curved head giving off the dramatic spot of light in the wet darkness, near the trash receptacle. However, earlier when Sawyer gets out of the car at the Sweet Shrimp, as he checks his gun, that towering lamppost is non-existent.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: With Marshal Mars in pursuit, as Ray drives his pickup, he holds the steering wheel with his left hand, and his stiff prosthetic right arm is down at his side. When Kate grabs for the steering wheel, in the side exterior shot the stunt driver is quite noticeable, as he grips and turns the steering wheel with his good right hand/arm.

Par Avion - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: In Episode 3-12, "Par Avion," when Charlie and Clair are attaching the note to the seagull, Charlie folds the paper into a small square and when the shot changes, he folds the paper again.

Boobra

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: After Jin is pulled off Michael, when Sawyer removes the marshal's handcuffs from his pocket there is a very short link chain dangling - about a couple of inches. However, when Jin is cuffed to the wreckage the link chain is considerably longer - about a foot.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: The Monster appearing in the pilot and causing the turbine to explode is a mistake (not trivia). This is actually an artefact of poor CGI effects that was left in the show in error. It was confirmed by the producers. You can see it best here: http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Image:Turbine_Explosion.gif.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Jin is handcuffed in season 1, "House of the Rising Sun" and the cuff remains on his left wrist until season 2, "What Kate Did" when Locke removes it. The handcuffs have a distinctive shape - a single strand connected via pivot to a double strand with the lock area. When Jin is initially cuffed to the plane wreckage, the single strand faces out at his wrist, but in following shots, in this and all the subsequent episodes, the handcuff actually switches sides repeatedly, going round his wrist the opposite way.

The Glass Ballerina - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Season 3, episode 2, "The Glass Ballerina". When Jin is in the hotel and is about to kill Jae Lee, he holds a pillow to Lee's head and presses his gun against it. At first, the gun is pointing to Lee's cheekbone, but when it cuts to Lee as he is sobbing "I'm sorry. I'm sorry", the gun is much lower, and pointing to his throat. Cut back to Jin, and you can see the gun is once again pointing to Lee's face. There was no time for Jin to move it between shots, and Lee did not move nearly enough to cause this changes.

Twotall

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Hurley gets to Sayid who is about to fix the transmitter, Sayid puts down the battery on the case. It cuts and the battery is back in his hand and in the next shot the battery is on the case.

Solitary - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: As Jack, Michael, and Charlie walk up to Hurley, the camera goes to the left of Hurley and you can see a road to the right of him and directly behind him a fence. If you look closely you can see a car parked under one of the trees. This can be seen in both the T.V. and DVD versions.

Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Jack, Charlie and Kate are walking through the woods and Jack is holding the transceiver, Charlie ask if he hears anything. Jack then answers "You keep asking if there's anything", while holding the transceiver with his right hand and his left hand down. When it cuts he holds on to the transceiver with both hands.

Mortug

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Charlie, Kate and Jack are in the nose wreckage, to find the transceiver, there is a shot in first class, facing the cockpit, showing the glass wall with the decorative circular design. When Charlie is aboard the flight, running from the stewards, he stands beside that glass wall, and the circular pattern is reversed. Neither shot is flipped.

Deux Ex Machina - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Boone tosses the statue out of the plane, in the close-up the entire statue shatters, and the heroine bags spill out as the head flies off to the side. But in the following shot, Locke picks up a large unbroken piece - the head and torso are intact with some bags still inside, and even that piece changes in the next shot.

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kate and Sawyer happen upon the lovely waterfall, Sawyer removes his shirt and he has the bandage tied round the stab wound on his upper arm. When underwater, there is a different dressing on his arm; it is snugger, with no ends - most likely an elastic type to stay put during the underwater shots.

Lost mistake picture

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Jack removes the paper with Kate's mugshot from the marshal's jacket pocket, in the close-up of the paper there is no writing at the top center of the paper, only at the sides. However, in the previous shot the center writing is visible from behind, and is also perfectly seen when Hurley finds the paper.

The Other 48 Days - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: When Goodwin and Ana Lucia sits down to have a break and Goodwin hands over some fruit to Ana, she says "Where do you think they got it? I mean they're not even wearing shoes", directing to the knife. If you watch in the background you can see a car driving.

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode where the doctor tries to save the woman who is drowning, when he enters the water for the second time just as he says "there's someone else out there", you can easily see the keel water of the boat or Jet Ski that is filming him.

Live Together, Die Alone, Part 2 - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: The woman from Desmond's photo is totally different the second time we see it, but Desmond and the background are exactly the same as before.

The Greater Good (a.k.a. Sides) - S1-E21

Visible crew/equipment: After Sayid and Essam pull into the garage, when Sayid leaves through the back of the white van and closes the door, there is a lovely clear reflection of the cameraman and camera reflected on the door.

Homecoming - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Jack shows Locke the case with guns, the bar trim beneath the handle is whole and unbroken. However, in "Whatever the Case May Be" when Boone tries to open the case without the key, the trim beneath the handle breaks off and is damaged.

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Charlie and Hurley are talking to Jack about the water, Jack then shouts something like, "I'm not making any decision," and in the background two people walk by - they move from right to left. After a cut to Charlie and Hurley when Hurley asks "Why?" it cuts back to Jack, and the same two people walk from right to left again.

Quotes

Benjamin Linus: Your flight crashed on September 22,2004. Today is November 29th. That means you've been on this island for sixty-nine days. And yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that during those sixty-nine days, your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away, Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
[Jack begins to laugh.]
Benjamin Linus: What?
Jack Shepard: [Still laughing.] If you wanted me to believe that, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
Bejmain Linus: No, they were down 3-0 against the Yankees in the Championship Series and then won eight straight.
Jack Shepard: [Skeptically.] Sure, sure. Of course they did.
[Ben turns on a VCR.]
Joe Buck: Back to Foulke... Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are world champions! A clean sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Red Sox celebrate in the middle of the diamond here at Busch Stadium.
