The Big Bang Theory

The Bad Fish Paradigm - S2-E1

Factual error: At the very beginning of the episode Leonard says "So you see what you're eating is not technically yogurt because it doesn't have enough live active acidophilus cultures." He is implying this is a scientific fact (he's not just giving his opinion on yogurt.) But to meet the U.S. standards for yogurt, only the starter cultures Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus are required, not Lactobacillus acidophilus. The presence or absence of L. acidophilus does NOT determine a food's identity as yogurt (which Leonard's line is implying).

The Barbarian Sublimation - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Sheldon gets the sword for Penny in the game, Penny walks out and you can see the laptop isn't switched on.

The Cushion Saturation - S2-E16

Factual error: Leslie Winkle takes shelter with Howard in the middle of a paintball game. Her gun has no hopper for paintballs and thus no ammo, so it's useless, despite her apparently using it outside seconds earlier. This isn't a model with an internal magazine - the port to attach the missing hopper is plainly visible.

The Maternal Capacitance - S2-E15

Character mistake: Leonard has his phone on his left ear. Sheldon says "Since ears don't cross hemispheres..." This is an error. The vast majority of the input to the left (or right) ear crosses over to the opposite hemisphere.

The Codpiece Topology - S2-E2

Character mistake: When Sheldon arrives at the apartment with his Nintendo 64 in the box, he tells Leonard that they can play Super Mario 64. He then proceeds to say, upon finding a memory card, that they can pick up where he left off. Super Mario 64 does not make use of the memory card, all of the data is saved on the cartridge.

The Lizard-Spock Expansion - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When the guys are in the Mars Rover test room, the time displayed on the large digital clock seen behind Howard jumps about inconsistently between each shot.

The Barbarian Sublimation - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Penny drops her bags of groceries whilst trying to unlock her door, the dropped items change their positions between shots (note the items against the wall.)

The Killer Robot Instability - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the show, the big robot is chasing the other robot down the hallway. The camera starts to zoom in as the robots come by it. The big robot stops just before the camera zoom is past it, yet they keep running down the hallway like the robot is still going.

The Griffin Equivalency - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, just after Howard says, 'Creepy good or creepy bad?', there is a shot where Howard is holding his food, even though Leonard hasn't given it to him yet and it isn't there in the shot before or after. After Leonard gives the food to Howard, the exact same shot is used after he says, 'I'm not necessarily talking about the food', so the shot was taken from there and it is shown twice.

Continuity mistake: When Penny sneaks into Sheldon's room at night to ask him about the online game, she leaves his bedroom door half open. But when she leaves, the door is shut.

The Bad Fish Paradigm - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In the laundry room when Penny is talking to Sheldon, Sheldon takes some time arranging a blue shirt on his plastic laundry folder. Then it suddenly turns into a pair of socks, which he folds and then picks up the blue shirt again. There was not enough time for him to switch out the shirt for the socks.

The Killer Robot Instability - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: When M.O.N.T.E. crashes through the door, if you watch carefully, the door is already off its hinges and falling before M.O.N.T.E. hits it.

The Work Song Nanocluster - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Penny puts the box down at the start it is closed. Camera cuts and it's open instantly.

Starchild

The Financial Permeability - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When using the whiteboard at the beginning, Raj writes "7:11" on the board with a red marker. Later on when Sheldon returns to the apartment with Red Vines, this has vanished from the whiteboard although nobody rubbed it out.
