Continuity mistake: In the Daffyd sketch, Daffyd has two nipple piercings. As those other gay men come through the door and he pushes them back, his right nipple ring has moved up his body - obviously a clip on. It stays there for a few moments, until the next shot where it's back on his nipple, with no time to put it back on. (00:10:05)
Continuity mistake: In the last battle scene in the miniseries, above Ragnar, all the civilian ships Jump away and Commander Adama orders all the vipers to land inside Galactica's landing bay. At one point, Dualla reports that two vipers are still out in the fight - Starbuck and Apollo. When Starbuck pushes her viper and Apollo's towards the landing bay, there's a shot of one of the basestars firing a missile, which hits Galactica. In this scene, we can see (and hear) 3 vipers, one of which is firing at a Cylon raider in the distance. They couldn't be Starbuck or Apollo, since Starbuck's viper and Apollo's were joined together and the mystery vipers are not, nor are they any of the other pilots, since only Starbuck and Apollo's vipers were still out, as Dualla has stated.
Continuity mistake: During the film "Left foot, Long foot" when he's being interviewed for Inside Chappelle's Show Studio , you can see a bit of blood on the top right of his forehead after he gets up after slipping on the skateboard. In one of the following shots when he is looking around at the crowd applauding him you can see the blood is now down by his nose. The next shot it back up the top of his forehead and the following shot its even further down his nose than before.Lummie
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rube shakes hands with the animal protesters, he is not wearing the trash bag while shaking their hands. He is wearing the trash bag immediately before and after. (00:04:45)
Continuity mistake: In the episode, "Year of the Tiger" when Danny is driving Mr. Zhao in his convertible at night, you can really see that the background is a bad fake and since even though Danny is driving with the top down, his hair and clothing does not get ruffled at all by the wind.
Continuity mistake: After Amanda calls Angelica to tell her that she can't make it to her party, she takes her RSVP card from the "Yes" box to the "No" box. The problem is, the check mark on the card magically changes from being by the yes to being by the no without anyone touching it.
Continuity mistake: When Fast Eddie jumps over the road block and comes crashing down you can see from the severity of the landing that the front left side of the vehicle is seriously damaged as is probably the rest of the front of the vehicle. However when the camera shows the shock on the Officers faces of what's taken place and then pans back as Fast Eddie drives away, his car shows no damage whatsoever.Tobin OReilly
