V picture

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Kyle, Elizabeth and Robin are in the truck being chased by Mr. Chiang, in all the outside shots of the truck it is very easy to see that all three of them have been replaced by doubles. (00:09:05)

Robin of Sherwood picture

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Alan a Dale": Lady Mildred rides side-saddle. But when Gisburne gallops away with her, some shots reveal that the stunt woman riding the fast-moving horse is astride it full straddle. Her skirt is blown back just enough to see a brief glimpse of the stunt rider's real leg on the horse's right, and the fake pair of legs in side-saddle position on its left. For just a moment, the lady appears to have three legs. (00:20:00)

The Bill picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 19, Episode 159. When Des Taviner flips and drives the area car wildly around an industrial estate and into a gas storage facility, you can see that during the sequence the Vauxhall Vectra he is driving starts off as a Y registration, then changes for several shots to a P registration, and then finally back to a Y registration when it blows up inside the building.

Murder, She Wrote picture

Sing a Song of Murder - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When the first scene at Emma's hideaway was shown, obviously the two characters Emma and Jessica were filmed seperately on the couch and then the film was put together (as both are played by Angela Lansbury). However Jessica did a lot of moving while she was talking, so Emma was looking straight across at where she had been, despite her bending down while she talked.

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'.

Night Court picture

Christine's Friend - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Judge Stone is flipping down the hall out of excitement, you can tell it's his stunt double as his face appears on camera after the cartwheel. It appears his bow tie is missing too.

The Tripods picture

The White Mountains: November, 2089 AD - S1-E13

Plot hole: The main characters are being pursued by Tripods, mind controlling alien machines. My question is, if the Tripods can turn humans into 1600's puppets, complete with foxhunts, why don't they make some of said mind-controlled humans help with the pursuit?

The Master picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Hostages": During the raid, the bad guys' helicopter lifts off with the hostages aboard. In the next shot, it's still on the ground. Next shot after that, it's airborne again.

Highway to Heaven picture

Hotel of Dreams - S1-E12

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning as the two men are pulling up in the field with the goats, there is a black screen reflected in the window of the truck. It looks like a block to keep the sun out of the shot.
