Continuity mistake: When Jax and his crew meet up with a Hispanic gang to sell them guns and are outnumbered, they run in the station wagon. The run the station wagon through a gate and roll it, destroying the front end, but magically the station wagon's front end appears with little damage afterwards. (00:27:15)
Continuity mistake: When the two factions of Hondo's pirates are fighting each other, the ones who sided with Maul and Savage are using blasters that fire red bolts, while the ones that stuck with Hondo shoot blue bolts. When Hondo persuades the traitors to work for him again and they attack the two Sith, all of the pirates' blasters are now firing blue bolts. This is Star Wars, not G.I. Joe, and weapons don't just change colour like that.
Continuity mistake: All shots of the Jeep Cherokee prior to it crashing (and during the process of flipping over) show that it wears factory-optional silver steel wheels of a 'star' style. But as the wreck settles upside-down, it's wearing plain steel wheels (like those found under full wheel covers or on a spare tire).johnrosa
Continuity mistake: In episode one, Alex Drake logs on to the computer in Gene Hunt's office. A shot shows the date: 17-07-1981. However, on a wall calendar Alex creates at her flat, the date of July 20th 1981 is circled, with the word "ARRIVED" written in large letters. That implies she arrived in 1981 on July 20th and not the 17th. So, which is the correct date, and what happened to the 18th and 19th July 1981?
Continuity mistake: In "Broke 'N' YoYo", when Cody has just sat down to talk to Zack after collecting loads of towels, in the first shot the towels are on the chair in front of him. In the next shot, when Cody leaves to practice, the towels have vanished. And in the next shot, when Bailey and Zack are talking, the towels are back again.
Continuity mistake: During "Brand New Day", at one point, Dr. Horrible stabs a picture of Captain Hammer attached to a dartboard with a handful of darts, all right in the center of the picture. A few shots later as Dr. Horrible sits, suddenly the darts are far-more spread out. (It's in the background and can be hard to see, but it's noticeable.)
Continuity mistake: Lex busts through the glass doors in S.T.A.R. Laboratory and the glass falls to the ground. In the wide shot, it is yellow. But in the close up of Lex's feet, the glass is suddenly clear. There is also more of it in the close up. (00:05:35)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: On his way to go see Obadiah Stane, Tony sees Trish and calls out to her. The guard escorting him places his hand on Tony’s shoulder. From the front view, the guard’s thumb is positioned downward. But when it cuts to an angle from behind, his thumb is now half way extended out to the side. (00:07:55)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: Season: 1, episode: 16 "Bloodline". As two soldiers of Darken Rahl approach the plains of Morrow, they break a magical shield which catches them on fire. Two frightened soldiers run away, and the commander shoots one. Keep an eye on the commander - he is still pointing the crossbow even after the soldier dies. The next shot, however, has his crossbow loaded with another arrow, daring anyone else to run away.RLN
