The Walking Dead picture

Consumed - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Daryl is driving the hospital van, it shows that he is going to land upside down, on the vehicle's roof, when he drives off the parking garage. In the next scene, the vehicle lands on its wheels, as if it has done a complete front flip. (00:30:00)

A Person of Interest - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: On the video of Ian supposedly killing Alison, we see her arm fall to the ground with her "Alison" bracelet visible. But in a later scene where Emily watches Ian put his bag in the athletics room, we cut back to the video and Alison's arm suddenly has a sleeve covering up her bracelet. When we see the video again later in the series, her bracelet is visible again.

The Blind Banker - S1-E2

Downton Abbey picture

Episode #4.5 - S4-E5

Factual error: When Lady Edith visits a Harley Street doctor his nameplate is shown outside his surgery. His name is prefixed with "Dr." However, one of his post-nominal qualifications is "FRCS." As a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, his name should be prefixed with "Mr.", as with all qualified surgeons in the British Isles.

Luther picture

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Luther goes to see Zoe and the house is an end terrace with a red door. Later he goes back and it's mid terrace with a black door.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: No, I don't think this is an error. I think the house with the red door is Luther and Zoe's marital home and the house with the black door is Mark's home.

Hawaii Five-0 picture

He puhe'e miki - S10-E20

Other mistake: The team, guns up, aimed, and ready, interrupt the meeting on the rooftop which has just ended in a shootout. Steve tells Cynthia to put the gun down or they'll have to put her down, and Junior menacingly cocks his rifle as if to emphasise the point. What, it wasn't already ready to fire? He's walked into a potential firefight with his weapon raised but it wasn't actually fireable yet?

London Calling - S2-E8

Factual error: Scenes were obviously not filmed in London, more like New England. The vehicle registrations are the right colour, but wrong format.

Raising Hope picture

Don't Vote for This Episode - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: In "Family Secrets" (episode 6) we learn Jimmy was lied to about being allergic to fruit (so he would not eat it all). So since he was a child he never ate fruit because he was told he was allergic to it. But in the season 1 finale there is a 5 year flash back where Jimmy is spending nights in the store dressed as "Drakkar Noir" he is eating apples and bananas - 5 years ago he still thought he was allergic to fruit.
