Best TV other mistakes of all time

The Golden Girls picture

Family Affair - S2-E7

Other mistake: A major plot point is Blanche having hurt her back in her gym class, and it is established that she is having a hard time moving. Indeed when Dorothy rushes to find Rose after hearing her scream, Blanche gets up to follow her but due to her injury she moves quite slowly. However, when Dorothy reaches the door, Blanche is right behind her, even though Dorothy did not help her and Blanche cannot move as fast as Dorothy.

...Different Destinations - S3-E5

Other mistake: While in the past on the Jocacean Memorial Planet, after Dacon is sent up on the wall by his commander, when the Venek Horde are coming over the wall Aeryn pulls one down and throws him to the ground, and we can see one of the armor pieces lying on the ground with the actor name "Dacon" written on the inside in English.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Rachel arrives at Central Perk, Monica introduces her to everybody, including to Chandler, as if they don't know each other. In later episodes, we learn that Chandler met Monica and Rachel a couple of times when they were in high school (including when Monica cut his toe off). Chandler even kissed Rachel once, and since Chandler always says that he hasn't kissed many women, he should have perfectly remembered Rachel, and Monica should have remembered that the two of them knew each other.

The Nanny picture

The Whine Cellar - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Sylvia is outside the Sheffield mansion she says "I wonder if my daughter Fran is at home? I will see if she is" the doorbell rings as soon as she finishes that line, but you can see both her hands are visible. She can't have rung the doorbell.

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.

The Eleventh Hour - S5-E1

Other mistake: When The Doctor tells the Atraxi "Oh, you're not the first lot to have come here, there have been so many," one of the monsters shown from their scan of Earth are a group of Ood. Even if in one of their uprisings they attacked the Earth, it would have been in the far future. The Doctor had no encounter with them on Earth, and he knows them to be peaceful, so why would they be amongst the aliens who have threatened the planet? The only Ood who has been to Earth at this point is Ood Sigma, and he didn't come to attack.

Criminal Minds picture

The Angel Maker - S4-E2

Other mistake: At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13.'.

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.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Other mistake: At the end of the episode after delivering his complex greeting to the Jarada, Picard and Riker head for the Turbo lift. Just as they are about to enter, Picard opens his mouth really wide as if making a funny face to someone inside the turbolift or maybe quietly celebrating a 'successful take' given the bizarre nature of the greeting! Although it was filmed from the side it is quite easy to spot.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer picture

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.

Love and War and Snow - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Rory returns from being stranded overnight in Hartford, she comes up the walk and meets Lorelei on the porch. Although it's snowing significantly in the background, there is not a single flake of snow on Rory's hair, jacket, or backpack, and her hair is completely dry.

Smallville picture

Gone - S4-E2

Other mistake: Lois digs up Chloe's grave site to unearth her casket. It is obvious that the casket is not buried six feet deep. You would think, will all that is going on, that LuthorCorp would have at least buried the casket deeper to deter inquisitive eyes and maybe throw in a few scattered bones for good measure.

My Master, the Weakling - S3-E5

Other mistake: About 3 minutes into the show, Don Rickles' character goes around a corner to get some equipment but you can see his left arm at the corner while he's waiting for his spot to come back into the scene.

The Andrea Doria - S8-E10

Other mistake: The tenant board member tells George that Mr. Eldrige in apartment 8C has decided he wants the new apartment. However, the new apartment in question has a 3-digit number - 808 I believe. This indicates that the building would not have single digit numbers and letters (Such as 5E, 8C, etc.) as part of its numbering system.

Show generally

Other mistake: Season 2, episode 20 "iFight Shelby Marx": At the beginning, when everyone is watching Shelby fighting on TV, the timer is going too slow. According to the timer, the fight ends at 2:53, which is only 7 seconds of fighting, yet the fight was way longer than that.

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?"

As Time Goes By - S2-E13

Other mistake: The Sliders discover the reverse-time issue when they notice that the clock on the wall is backward. However, in other shots, clocks look normal. Look carefully at the clocks on the judge's desk as the camera pans by.

There's No Place Like Home (2) - S5-E6

Other mistake: At the very end, Mr. Hanson is seen walking toward the church. Because of his stroke, he's slow and unsteady. We see several close-ups of his feet, showing how he's struggling. Two of those shots are the same footage. It's obvious, because you see that he drags his foot over a small stick in the road and stumbles - and in both shots, it is *exactly* the same.

Lost (2004)

Lost picture

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: The Monster appearing in the pilot and causing the turbine to explode is a mistake (not trivia). This is actually an artefact of poor CGI effects that was left in the show in error. It was confirmed by the producers. You can see it best here: http://www.lostpedia.com/wiki/Image:Turbine_Explosion.gif.

Love Hurts - S1-E21

Other mistake: In this episode when Piper says the power switching spell so that she can heal Leo it switches not only her and Leo's powers, but also, Prue's and Phoebe's; however in future seasons it only affects the witches it is meant to.

xx:xx:xx

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This is not an error because the first time the power switching spell was used, all of the sisters were in the room when it was cast, thus all their powers got swapped. But in the future episode this post is referring to (it specifies episodes plural, but the only other episode this spell was used in is "Ordinary Witches" from season 7) Piper and Phoebe were the only ones home when they did the spell so it didn't affect anyone else. Furthermore, in the first episode the spell was used, Prue also swapped powers with a Dark-lighter and simply had Phoebe cover her ears so as to not be affected by the spell, implying that one needs to actually hear the spell for it to have any effect.
