M-Corp - S12-E5

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.

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'.

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.

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 Office picture

Launch Party - S4-E3

Other mistake: In the beginning of the episode Meredith asks Jim to sign her cast. If you look closely, it's obvious that the actor John Krasinski signs his real name, not the name of his character, Jim Halpert. (00:02:35)

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)

Hustle picture

Show generally

Other mistake: In a number of episodes Mickey Bricks takes great pains to explain (usually to bent coppers) that he and his team are not thieves, making it plain that as a talented grifter he takes the high moral high ground over common criminals. The trouble is, he and every member of his team ARE thieves. In the very first episode "The Con Is On" Three Socks Morgan cleans out the bank accounts of a number of innocent people by rigging an automatic teller machine. He is stealing money, either from them or the bank. Stacie Monroe is shown picking pockets in a number of episodes and in "The Henderson Challenge" both Mickey and Danny Blue steal wallets from bystanders, a trick Mickey repeats in "The Return of the Prodigal." He also steals the victim's car. There are too many other examples to list here, but Mickey's pride in his exalted position as a master conman is definitely misplaced.

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

Suggested correction: It would be hard to call a delusional criminal's self aggrandizing a mistake (character or other). Many criminals (fictitious or real) display this same type of character. Plus, Mickey is suggesting common criminals aren't as skilled as his team, for example, at pick-pocketing, or that there's an art to his crimes only a conman can pull off.

How I Met Your Mother picture

Desperation Day - S6-E16

Other mistake: When Marshall returns from Minnesota, he approaches Lily lying on the couch from the kitchen area rather than from the door, and Lily still acts surprised to see him, even when he was obviously already in the apartment with her.

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 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.

Do Over - S5-E4

Other mistake: In the scene immediately after the opening credits, Jim is talking to Melinda on the phone. Right as he's hanging up, someone calls out "Dr. Clancy? Got a minute?", to which Jim waves in acknowledgement and starts up the stairs. (Jim's spirit has been in Sam Lucas' body since season 4 and in an earlier season 5 episode, his white coat is embroidered S. James Lucas, M.D). (00:09:15)

My Mother The Alien - S2-E9

Other mistake: When Harry spits baby food on the baby (the camera lens in actuality) in retaliation for the baby spitting food on him and Tommy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt breaks character and laughs uncontrollably and looks at and gestures to off-screen crew members a couple times. (00:06:25)
