The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.

ER (1994)

Love's Labor Lost - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: As Mark futilely pounds on Jodi O'Brien's chest, Carol can be seen in the background, removing her protective glasses with one hand. However, after the time of death has been called and they're showing the reactions of everyone present in the room (Susan, Carol, Carter, Lydia, Chen), Carol is seen taking the glasses off again, this time with both hands.

A Race Through Dark Places - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Before she's succeeded in her effort to move it with telekinesis, Talia's penny reverses itself on the table between takes, changing from tails-up to heads-up.

Jean G

Thirty Kilo Man (2) - S2-E24

Visible crew/equipment: Just shortly after Ellen lets Paige in, when Ellen stands at the counter, Paige mentions handcuffs, and then Ellen's boyfriend comes out. As the camera pans to the right, you first see a streak of light in the middle and as the camera continues to move four or five stage lights can be seen. This can be seen on the season 2 DVD set very clearly.

Jared Potter

Dibley Live - S2-E1

Audio problem: During the scene where Jim and Owen are trying to bribe the Vicar with chocolates, just after they take them back, you can hear a mysterious voice say "chocolates". The only person who this sounds like is Jim, but in the next shot, his lips aren't moving.

Big Report - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Connor (is this cool?) Hammil's shirt is unbuttoned, then buttoned between shots (just as he pushes the woman's head through a pane of glass).

For Lunch - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the class is in Arnold's esophagus, Tim says something, then it cuts back to Ms. Frizzle. Arnold is sitting in the back seat of the bus.

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 5: Mutants Revenge - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: The shot of Hobgoblin tossing pumpkin bombs at the ceiling inside Landon's lab is a recycled shot from the previous episode when he tossed bombs at the ceiling inside the auditorium.

Serious B

Water - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Danziger is rolling down the cliff it's obviously a stuntman in a really bad wig.

Mortug

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In the episode "Useful Holes", Auntie Mabel ends up locking herself in the cupboard trying to find the pan lid. However, when she walks into the cupboard, you can see her close the door behind her.

Casual Person

Protect and Survive - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gersham runs from the police in the first scene, his vehicle crashes on a rooftop and hits a wall, bouncing off it, turning and stopping parallel to it. He exits the vehicle, at the point where he crashed, and the vehicle is now positioned differently (turned 90 degrees, pointing straight to the wall).

DavidRTurner

Who Killed the Hollywood Headshrinker? - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Dressed as Catwoman, Ingrid cartwheels into Peter, knocking him over. When they hit the ground in full shot, she's upside down with her legs on his shoulders. When the shot cuts to a closer angle, her position has shifted 180 degrees and she's face-to-face with him, her hands on his shoulders.

Jean G

The Accident - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Alex goes into the garage for the first time, a camera and camera operator can been seen reflected in the saw.
