Continuity mistake: Season 4, episode 10 "Ben 10 vs. The Negative 10, Part 2": When the Forever King makes his announcement "Nothing will stop this little home-coming", he stands outside the Mount Rushmore base on bare soil.

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman picture

Show generally

Revealing mistake: There are numerous times throughout the series where the supposed big city of Metropolis is actually just a back lot set and none of the buildings are more than a couple of storeys high. Quite often the green hills of Southern California can be seen beyond the set and between the buildings.

The Three Doctors - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: (Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.

The Austere Academy: Part Two - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: In season 1 whenever count Olaf's tattoo is shown, it is always on his inner left ankle (the reptile room part 2, Mr. Poe wipes the makeup to reveal it on the inner ankle, and In the Wide Window part 2 when Sunny chews through the broomstick and Olaf's lag is revealed it is also on the inner ankle. In this episode, after Sunny loosens the laces on Olaf's shoe and the Baudelaires defeat Olaf in the arm wrestling, the tattoo is on the outside left ankle.

Green With Evil (1): Out of Control - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Up until Green No More in Series 2 (where the Green Ranger powers are destroyed), the Green Ranger's overshield constantly changes between solid-looking metal to flimsy-looking cotton. This is the most obvious difference between the Japanese and US footage.

Fury (1) - S1-E14

Plot hole: Hippolyta tells Hawkgirl of Aresia's background of being born in the outside world, the war in her country and right up to her drifting to the shores of Themyscira. It would be impossible for her to know anything of Aresia's background as in part two, it's explained that the captain of the ship who saved Aresia died shortly after reaching Themyscira and therefore would not have been able to tell Hippolyta anything.
