Continuity mistake: When Holmes and Watson are arguing in the kitchen, Watson puts her mug and phone on the counter. A few times during the scene, the mug switches which side of the phone it's on. The first time it's plausible Watson moves it when off camera, but subsequent to that, we can see enough of Watson to tell she doesn't make enough movements to change the position of the mug.Bishop73
Continuity mistake: In the final scene, John Ross decides to drink some of the whiskey from the bottle that his father, J.R. Ewing, left for him. The bottle of whiskey is about half full, filled to just about the bottom of J.R. Ewing's signature on the bottle. As John Ross reaches for the bottle, it is now suddenly only about 1/6 full compared to the half full it was from the previous shot. The level continues to move up and down. (00:41:45)
Revealing mistake: When Daniel picks up the can of blue paint, it passes right through the cans of yellow and red without bumping them.Quantom X
Factual error: The General wants to do his interview by the TV so he can watch March Madness at the same time. When the interview is about to begin, it shows a Kentucky game being played on Kentucky's home court. Teams cannot play on their own court during the NCAA Tournament. (00:40:50)illiniman14
Factual error: Noticed this watching season 2, and I assume it was also the case in season 1. The entrance of the Miramar Playa has flags from various countries flying. One of them is the Canadian flag with the maple leaf. Wrong flag. In that period the Canadian flag was the "Red Ensign", or "Dominion Flag." The maple leaf flag wasn't introduced until 1965.
Factual error: The depiction of the hanging is completely inaccurate. By the 1890s, the gallows at Newgate were housed in a room within the prison, not in the courtyard. Prisoners' wrists and legs were pinioned before they were hanged, not left free as depicted. The long drop was used in Britain from the 1870s, not the short drop depicted. The large knot depicted was not used in Britain (although it was in America) ; a simple sliding loop was actually used, and this was positioned under the jawbone at the side of the neck, not at the back of the neck, which would quite probably not have broken the neck, leaving the person to strangle to death.Necrothesp
Continuity mistake: After the race starts, one shot shows the '89 pulling ahead of the '66 by almost a full car length. The shot cuts to a view from the right side of the '89 for only a split second, then shows another frontal view of the two Batmobiles and suddenly the '89 and '66 are even with each other.

Continuity mistake: Shay is in the restroom at the firehouse after she returns from the horrible incident on their emergency call. She notices blood and human remains on her belt which she frantically rips off to clean the belt and her hands. In the next cut, while still at the sink washing her hands, the belt is back on.bnemirow
Character mistake: The chess set in Dr. Pierce's home office is set up incorrectly. When the men are set up properly, each player has a light colored square in the right-hand corner. The board as it appears in the show is set up so that the light-colored square is in each player's left-hand corner. This "beginner" mistake puts the king and queen in the wrong positions.
