Prison Break picture

End of the Tunnel - S1-E13

Other mistake: When Michael climbs up the rope to get to the room below the infirmary, the rope is hanging from the manhole cover, but he still manages to lift the cover whilst hanging from it. In the next shot where he looks down the manhole, its clear that there is nothing other than the rope he could have held on to while lifting the cover. An impressive accomplishment, defying the laws of gravity. (00:38:00)

To Buy or Not to Buy - S5-E14

Other mistake: On scene at the traffic accident, when the woman and the boy with non-serious injuries are seated at the back of the ambulance, neither Roy or Johnny are going along with them to Rampart, yet Johnny puts the drug box inside the back of the ambulance with them, and the ambulance drives off. With their drug box! Captain Stanley even says that he'll advise dispatch that they're available for a run at the scene, while the guys will be looking for the dog.

Never Kill A Boy On The First Date - S1-E5

Other mistake: In the famous scene where Buffy tells Giles, "If the Apocalypse comes, beep me," she grabs her pager from out of shot. Trouble is, she's standing in the middle of her hall and there's nowhere she could have picked the gadget up from. (00:21:00)

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! picture

Show generally

Other mistake: On the "Mario's Greatest Movie Moments" DVD of this series, from the main menu, go into the trivia game. The fifth question asks you about the Super Mario Bros. Super Show episode 'Count Koopula.' It asks you "What's room number that the Mario Bros. were put into in Koopula's Castle?" It's supposed to say "What's THE room number that the Mario Bros. were put into in Koopula's Castle?"

Star Wars: The Clone Wars picture

Rookies - S1-E5

Other mistake: The battle droids - including the commando droids featured here - habitually have two broad fingers and a thumb. So how can a commando droid squeeze itself completely into clone trooper armor without its broad fingers tearing open the gloves, since it can't separate its fingers?

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers picture

Show generally

Other mistake: Episode 13-12: "Shadow (2)." When Cruger is challenged to defeat 100 robots, a red countdown meter appears on the screen, ticking down each time Cruger dispatches an opponent. When the counter is at 21, Cruger slices his sword at a robot, which then goes down. But the counter stays at 21 and only goes to 22 when he slices at the next robot. Every robot in the sequence goes down after a single hit from Cruger's sword.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles picture

To the Lighthouse - S2-E20

Other mistake: Season 2, Episode 20: "To the Lighthouse" - In the flashbacks to the jungle, John is considerably younger. Sarah however, is not. Adults don't change nearly as much as a child would in the same time period, but this is a pretty big jump back in time. John is only a child in the flashbacks, putting Sarah in her mid to late 20s. Yet she still looks 35 and even has the exact same skin and facial structure.

The Hell Machine - S3-E28

Other mistake: When the German soldiers are on the radio alerting other German units of Americans in a captured German tank, they are using the English word "tank"- the Germans should be using the word "panzer", instead.

The Night of Miguelito's Revenge - S4-E12

Other mistake: The sandbag that almost falls on Pike and West splits wide open upon impact with the floor, but subsequent shots of the bag show it almost intact.

Alias picture

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: For secret agents, Sydney and Dixon are not very dedicated to secret identities. At several points they refer to each other by their real names in front of other people while they are under aliases. Examples include The Confession party and The Coup Las Vegas scenes.

CSI: Miami picture

Kill Switch - S5-E23

Other mistake: In episode "Kill Switch" it states that Jason Billings died from a broken neck, it shows Tony Decker kicking him in the face snapping his neck. Jason then tries to claw his way up onto Tony's deck leaving the scratches and blood and getting the splinter under his nail. This wouldn't have been possible since he would have already been dead.

Saga of a Star World (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: In the second shot showing the fleet of Battlestars (from the port side and slightly behind), the closest ship has an odd reflection which forms a "pillar of light" radiating down from near the rear of the landing bay. It is an effects error, perhaps created while trying to hide the rod that holds the ship up from below. (00:02:45)

Attila picture

Show generally

Other mistake: In the party/orgy scene where Aetius is showing off Rome to Attila, one can see a woman with her back to us reveal herself to a man and woman. Despite her veil, one can see her thong underwear. This type of underwear is a 20th century innovation.

A Prime Problem - S2-E8

Other mistake: When Spike is thrown out of the base by Megatron at the end of the episode, Optimus calls him 'Splik'.

Kim Possible picture

Kimitation Nation - S1-E16

Other mistake: In the scene where Drakken accidentally "clones" Bonnie Rockwaller instead of Kim Possible, he holds up a picture of Kim to compare the results of his experiment with the real thing. The Bonnie clone, completely encapsulated behind the glass of Drakken's cloning machine (as evidenced by the reflection of light off of it) somehow manages to get a hold of the picture despite this barrier. (She does this without having to break the glass.).

Fragged - S2-E3

Other mistake: In the CIC, Tigh challenges Apollo and asks why he isn't in the brig. Shortly after Apollo begins to explain the plan for the search and rescue of the Raptor downed on Kobol. He refers to it as "Raptor 3" when it is Raptor 1 they are looking for. Raptor 3 was destroyed when they first jumped to Kobol, Raptor 2 escaped back to Galactica, and 1 fell to Kobol. The Raptor on Kobol is referred to as Raptor 1 throughout the rest of the episode and on preceding episodes.

Day 4: 4:00 A.M.-5:00 A.M. - S4-E22
