The Walking Dead picture

Thank You - S6-E3

Other mistake: When Nicholas shoots himself, both him and Glenn fall with their feet facing the dumpster, and their heads facing the walkers. However, when they cut to the shot of presumably Nicholas being eaten, we see Glenn's head facing the dumpster. This does not make any sense. Glenn would have had to do a complete 180 turn before landing, or move around without being detected by walkers. In fact, the way they landed does not make complete sense at all. Another possible explanation could be that there are two dumpsters, but none is seen. The fence seen when Glenn and Nicholas climb on top has also disappeared.

A Question of Fear - S2-E18

Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man - S4-E7

Other mistake: In the episode "Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man," when CSM is writing his letter of resignation on his typewriter, you can see that the letters are already there - he is simply typing over them. (00:39:30)

Bates Motel picture

Trust Me - S1-E4

Other mistake: After the scene where Norman texts Bradley that he is coming over, the next shot is Norman looking at the small transcript of his messages to her. If you look, you can see that the transcript starts at 2:34 PM. However, it's nighttime. You can even see the time says 2:34 PM at the top of the phone screen. Also, the original text of 'Hey' is missing although he texted her immediately after receiving it with 'I want to come over and see you.' (00:37:40)

Zion - S2-E12

Other mistake: In one of the final scenes, Bruce is talking to his father and everyone in the church is "frozen" in a vision. Watch carefully and you can see some people moving slightly.

To Serve Man - S3-E24

Other mistake: Chambers asks what time it is on Earth, a strangely vague question to which the Kanamits grant an equally odd answer: on Earth, it is noon. It can't be noon everywhere on Earth at once. While it can be fancifully explained away ("They somehow knew to answer for the time zone he was taken from"), it still jars the viewer, because neither Chambers nor the aliens, both highly intelligent, should make this sort of imprecise mistake. Both director Richard Bare and Damon Knight, author of the original short story, confirmed this as a scriptwriting error that should have been caught before shooting began. (00:02:15)

Kingdom Come - S1-E6

Other mistake: At the start of chapter 12 in the episode "Kingdom Come," Frank returns home via taxi. In front of his house in Seattle, WA, there is a blonde woman walking a Rottweiler dog. This same blonde and Rottweiler can be seen walking by the crime scene in San Francisco in the "Gehenna" episode.

A New Day in the Old Town - S2-E1

Other mistake: Just after Olivia wakes up in hospital, she's trying to explain what happened, and we hear a heart monitor getting faster and faster - the doctor looks concerned and says they need to get her pulse down. But when we cut to the monitor itself it shows her heart rate as 72 - a perfectly normal value.

Haven picture

Stay - S3-E2

Other mistake: Duke is checking old copies of the Haven Herald around the time of Lucy (27 years ago). A headline on the one he's reading is about Lucy's disappearance. A moment later, he's reading a story about a meteor shower that occurs every 27 years; but the text we can see states that it just happened, and refers to dates in 2010 (having just happened, not '27 years from now'). This paper is supposed to be a 1983 edition. Also there is fake Latin 'filler text' printed in some columns.

The Girl Who Cried Monster - S1-E4

Other mistake: When we see Mr. Mortman transforming the second time, the shot is exactly the same as the first shot that was shown when he first transformed.

Green-Eyed Gomez - S1-E8

Other mistake: As Fester goes to shoot Gomez, his aim strays upward to about a 45 to 50° angle. Not enough to shoot the support chain on the light that is directly above him, and hits him on the head.

The Chameleon - S1-E31

Other mistake: Mace's chest camera sends images from impossible angles - including several that include Mace himself. At the end, his superiors watch him from a camera that's obviously mounted in a tree and not on his person. Yet when Mace smashes his chest camera, the transmission goes dead anyway. (00:48:00)
