Best TV continuity mistakes of 2001
Continuity mistake: The 6:00PM-7:00PM episode ends when it is still light outside. The 7:00PM-8:00PM Episode begins when it is completely dark (no sunset/dusk/twilight) The show is supposed to be in "real-time" but as the sun goes down it gradually gets darker, it does not just become dark from one second to the next. Also, the California presidential primary takes place in June. It is not even close to dark at 7pm in June.
Continuity mistake: Emily Sloane's left ring finger was shipped to Arvin Sloane in one episode in Season 2, when they are reunited in the Philippines, the left ring finger is bandaged and missing. Later, in the episode when she is shot, when she tells Arvin the CIA is listening, the left ring finger is there.
Continuity mistake: In the bootcamp scene where Captain Sobel is yelling at Private Christenson for drinking from his canteen, you see a machine gun resting on Christenson's right shoulder. When the camera angle changes to behind Christenson, the machine gun has suddenly moved onto his other shoulder. This happens quite a few times in this particular scene.
Continuity mistake: Near the end, the detectives give Hawkins the murdered woman's manuscript to read and compare. The stack of papers they give him is easily 300-400 pages thick and held together with a large binder clip. Moments later, in a fit of anger, Hawkins throws the manuscript in the air and papers fly everywhere. The problem is that he throws no more than 50 pages in the air.Guy
Continuity mistake: When Flash plays tag with Faust ("Now you see me, now you don't"), there is a brief shot in which he rushes at Faust - but not inside Hyppolita's palace, but in some high-tech laboratory. Obviously a shot from some earlier series, since the coloring and style are different from the Justice League's.Daniel4646
Continuity mistake: In the episode when Penny went to work with her mom and the Magician comes in with the tiger that is acting strangely. The tiger is sitting on the floor and has just eaten its food. Penny is standing there next to the tiger, the camera goes to her mom for about two seconds, then it goes back on her and the food has returned in the bowl again. Then it's empty again.
Continuity mistake: Jack's father the emperor is a young man when he defeats Aku. At the conclusion of the movie, he greets his pregnant young wife. At the start of "The Beginning" movie, Jack is a very young boy, both his parents are well past middle age-and Jack has no sisters or brothers to explain the gap.
Continuity mistake: When Brian is having a go at the person about the inflatable, that person then sits on the "love length" and says it's optional, the camera cuts to Brian and co then it cuts back to the person and for some strange reason he has some paper eyes (for Sammy Snake)in his hands. They couldn't have been in his pockets because the paper eyes weren't creased.
