Terra Nova (2011)

10 mistakes

Genres: Sci-fi

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the waterfall, after jumping off the cliff and into the water, Skye leads Josh to the rock carvings. Josh's wet hair keeps changing position from being completely slicked back, to partially covering his forehead, to being completely forward over his brow.

Resistance - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Casey Durwin deliberately stalls his motorized wheelchair in front of the Phoenix Group convoy (so Jim Shannon can slip into the last vehicle), his chair's position keeps changing. From the front angle, the chair is directly centered in the middle of where the truck is. When seen from Malcolm's view on the side, Durwin's chair is now partially clear of the truck's front end, then it's back in the middle.

Show generally

Plot hole: Skye's mother, Deborah, was held hostage by the Sixers for several years, though everyone believed she had died in an epidemic and was buried in Memorial Field. The Sixers kept her alive with medicine only they had to force Skye to act as their spy. Even though Terra Nova has a medical clinic staffed by doctors and nurses, it was never noticed that no one had witnessed Deborah dying, her body was never placed in the morgue, that was there no record of her being buried, or even questioned that there was no corpse. Deborah just disappeared without a trace and nobody wondered about it.

Genesis - Part 1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After removing their rebreathers, they are again with them at 12:48, and then are sans the rebreathers and their jackets at 13:19.

Genesis - Part 1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Skye and Josh are swimming by the rocks with the geometric drawings. When they get out of the water they focus on Josh and it's sunny on both of them, and overcast when they focus on Skye, from shot to shot.

Vs. - S1-E9

Factual error: The frequency which is used to attract the dragon fly is said to be "sub-sonic" and therefore can't be heard by humans, but the exact frequency is stated to be 38.2 Hz. This is well above 20 Hz, the lowest frequency an average human can hear.

Vs. - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: Dr. Shannon identifies the skeleton as being a middle-aged male, but the skull is female. A male skull has a more pronounced ridge over the eye orbits, a sloping forehead, a longer mastoid process, and the skull widens at the back, unlike a female's that is more parallel.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the Sixers are in Terra Nova after the two Carnotaurus have been repelled, Mark Reynolds appears and disappears from beside Maddy during the shots of Maddy, Zoe and Elisabeth.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When Skye, Josh, and the other teens reach the waterfall, Skye says she's taking the shorter (and more dangerous) route. After the others have have left to take the longer path, Skye strips down to her bikini, drops her outer clothes on the ground, then jumps off a 45-foot cliff into the water below, with Josh following her. When they meet up with the other teens shortly after, Skye is suddenly fully dressed again, even though her clothing was left atop the cliff, and her wet hair is now dry.

Now You See Me - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the beginning of the episode, when you see Commander Taylor running up the river bank from a high sky camera view, off to the left you can see a crew member standing by a tree, just before the scene changes.
