Continuity mistake: Prior to bringing Ray up for the role-playing exercise, the parenting teacher erases a circled phrase from the chalkboard. Throughout the scene, the chalked circle flips several several times between being totally erased and having a faint outline left over.mirtom
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)Phaneron
Continuity mistake: In the episode when it's Kenan's birthday, Kenan and Kel are looking for Kenan's present in Kenan's parents room. As they're searching, Kel throws some of Kenan's parent's clothes all over the place. But then when Kel throws the snowglobe, there is practically no mess, but just a few clothes on the floor - less than before. Some clothes on the bed disappear as well.Hamster
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jarod is being thrown into the swimming pool by Zed, the gang leader, as a sort of initiation, there is a shot where Jarod is tied up in chains sitting in a chair at the bottom of the pool. Another character is set to throw in the key just to the next of Jarod and he is supposed to fall over and get it. In the shot just before he falls over, you can see a crewmen's arm holding a chain attached to the chair in order to help Jarod fall over.
Other mistake: At the start of chapter 12 in the episode "Kingdom Come," Frank returns home via taxi. In front of his house in Seattle, WA, there is a blonde woman walking a Rottweiler dog. This same blonde and Rottweiler can be seen walking by the crime scene in San Francisco in the "Gehenna" episode.
Continuity mistake: In Episode 5, "Live Hard, Die Young and Leave A Good Looking Corpse": As Lillie is preparing to cut Zane's throat with her fingernail, she stands with her hand raised above her head for a while. When seen from the front, her hand is balled into a fist with the index finger extended, but when seen from the back all her fingers are extended. The view alternates like this several times, and each time the hand varies between fist and outstretched fingers.Twotall
Factual error: Season 2 episode 10 "Double Dose": When Superman snatches Parasite's escape boat and hauls it back to Stryker's, Parasite attempts to blast him with a shotgun found aboard. But somehow the animators appeared unable to decide whether the gun should be a double-barrel or a pump-action type; and building a double-barrel pump gun would be impractical due to additional weight and bulk.Daniel4646
Plot hole: When Nicky goes into prison in Mexico to give a criminal a shot of insulin, two errors are seen. 1) The needle and syringe are far too big for an insulin shot, which takes a one ml syringe and a small sub-cutaneous needle. 2) When we first see the syringe, there is a small amount of insulin in it, but it grows the more times we see it, until a large syringe is two-thirds full - insulin is enough in a one ml syringe.kh1616
