Tru Calling picture

Star Crossed - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: About twenty minutes into the episode, Tru sits down next to Jen. Jen says, "I saw you in line in the cafeteria." Tru, with her hands at her sides, says, "Tru." Jen says, "Jen," and raises her hand to shake, at which point Tru reciprocates. But how did Jen know that Tru was introducing herself? After all, pretty much nobody else is named Tru, so in context it would have sounded like Tru was saying, "True," as in, "True; you did see me in the cafeteria."

Duct Tape Canyon - S11-E8

Revealing mistake: When Jamie sits down after rappelling down the canyon wall you can see that he has climbing rope attached to his harness. It's wrapped in duct tape to look like its the rope he and Adam made of duct tape. This may just be a safety line to support his weight if he duct tape rope snaps, but the Mythbusters usually point out any backup safety systems and explain that they are there for caution and don't contribute to the test. (This was explained in the aftershow. It was a safety line required by the shows insurers).
