Best TV mistakes of 1993
Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder and Scully enter the abandoned mine through a doorway, the viewer can see at right in the distance a number of people sitting on a wall, and one crouching in front of the wall with what looks like a dog. They are sitting still, but there is still movement there.
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.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Odo has sent everyone affected by the telepathic matrix to a cargo bay. Sisko and O'Brien remove their com badges, throwing them aside before heading to the bay. After everyone is cured, Sisko straightens back up and, in the closeup, you can see that he has a badge on. In the next closeup, it's gone again.
Continuity mistake: In an interior shot of the detectives' vehicle, the car is a late 80s Chrysler (LeBaron or K-Car), obvious from the 'pentastar' logo on the steering wheel and the distinctive gauge layout. When the detectives walk away from the car, it is the homicide standard issue Chevrolet Cavalier.
Plot hole: "Showdown": Darien's lost hat and jacket reappear without explanation after Kane finds him wandering in the desert. Also unexplained is how Kane conveniently happens to be leading an extra, unnecessary horse - unnecessary, at least, until he stumbles across the stranded Darien.
Factual error: Early in the show, 3 Marine officers are being questioned about the death of a 4th. All 3 are wearing the Marine insignia on their jacket lapels reversed. [The anchors should point IN, not out] That mistake is corrected for some characters later in the episode, however at least two of the officers are seen later without their jackets, and their shirts do not have military creases - 2 in the front, 3 in the back - standard for a Marine blouse.
Continuity mistake: When Filburt first reads his fortune cookie, it says "Bad luck and misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity". But later on when he is walking down the street it says "Bad luck and extreme misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity".

Character mistake: Trivette hands the man in yellow a bullet recovered from the plane Walker and Alex were traveling on, which was shot down by an assassin flying a P-51 Mustang. This man, and later Trivette, mistakenly refer to the round as a "50mm," when in reality, Mustangs were equipped with M2 Browning .50 Caliber (12.7 mm) machine guns.
Continuity mistake: In an earlier season Caine takes a young Peter to a place in the temple and explains that his mother is buried there. However in the series finale he shows adult Peter a picture that someone took months ago and Caine tells Peter that the woman is his mother and he's going to find her.

Continuity mistake: When Leo's son throws his watch against the wall, it breaks into several pieces, which bounce off a surface just below the camera frame (it's an odd look, but could be a table or the floor, as we don't see where on the wall the watch impacted) - then they fly off to the right. But in the next shot, most of the watch's pieces are falling to the floor, directly down, and in a group (the prop man simply held out his hand and dropped them into frame).
