Anne - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene at the end when Buffy is fighting the demons you see her throw one of the demons off the platform. If you watch him fall you can see him land safely on a conveniently placed mat. (00:38:10)

These Are the Days - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: When Georgia walks into Billy's office naked, a triangle-lamp will cover her "naked" breasts. Look closely, for at one point you can see the white, strapless bra.

Revealing mistake: When Alan serenades Jill, near the end of the song, the guitar player removes his hand from his guitar briefly but the guitar part continues to play (it's being synthesised as part of the keyboard's rhythm track). (00:19:10)

The Great Can Drive - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: Right after TJ and friends are looking at the "thermometers" of cans, the Ashleys have at least 4 crates of cans that they bring in on forklifts. However, the end result is 4,362 cans for the Ashleys. This may seem kind of picky, but I think there was more cans than 4,362.

Super Nova - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Stan, Xev and Kai are walking to the Memory Chamber, they seem to walk out of a two dimensional line at the lower left into the scene. The set and green screen weren't quite synched.

A Little Knowledge - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: A little oversight on the part of the producers. At the final scores that we are shown, Amy has $10,000, TJ has $9,800, and Travis has $2,400. This all adds up to $22,200. Even if they only answered $400 questions (which we can see that they don't), that's about 55 questions at best, only in the first half. That would run way longer, probably about three or four times as long, as any normal game show. And there's no mention of any other rules regarding the scores so there's no reason to think that there are bonus questions that could raise it that much.

Monstret - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: As the RCV enters the gravel field with the bomb, you can see a person in shorts walking casually in the background, despite the area being sealed off.

No Trace of Tracy - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: Creek reads a newspaper article about Tracy, a missing schoolgirl. The first paragraph of the article is about the schoolgirl, but the rest is about John Major (who had just been ousted by Tony Blair as prime minister when the episode was first aired, but, assuming this was filmed some months earlier, would still have been in power). The first line of the article following the first paragraph starts mid-sentence, as if the first paragraph has simply been pasted over the top of the existing article. This mistake is surprising as there is a photograph of John Major alongside the article and the newspaper remains in shot long enough for it to be spotted without the need to pause the DVD or video.
