Green With Evil (1): Out of Control - S1-E17

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.

Homicide: Life on the Street picture

Fits Like a Glove - S3-E2

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.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Colleen and Becky are talking to the boy, there is a boy walking in the background. When he loses his hat, he is behind the boy talking to the girls.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "A Stranger in Time, Part 2": Darien's arrival in 1993, shown in part 1, is recapped in part 2. But the director appears to have chosen different takes for the recap. Much of the dialogue differs substantially, and Selma's explanation that he's materialized in the ladies' room is left out altogether.

All or Nothing at All picture

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

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). (00:37:40)
