Tape 6, Side B - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Hannah makes the list with names involving her past events, they differ substantially between the close-up when they're written and the final wide angle once the paper is finished. Check Alexander: first an irregular oval with a straight side, then a perfect oval.

Taboo picture

Episode #1.7 - S1-E7

Factual error: Lorna uses the word 'okay'. The first recorded usage of this word in America was not until 1839 and in Britain not until the 20th century. The series is set in 1814 and generally uses language contemporary to its setting.

Ogygia - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In season 4 of Prison Break, Mike Scofield's tombstone date of death shows 11-4-2005 but in this the date is 11-4-2010.

Fracture - S2-E1

New this month Factual error: The briefer on the oil platform mission says the platform is 12 stories, and 80 million square feet. Doing the math, that makes it half a mile per side if completely square. It is nowhere near that size as shown. The largest oil rig in the world - Berkut in Russia's Far East - has a combined deck area of only 342,000 square feet. (00:13:35)

Old Wounds - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the Krill shuttles land, they park on either side of the entrance to Epsilon station, but when the Orville crew are escaping, the Krill shuttles are gone momentarily (during the firefight), only to return to their proper places a moment later as the Orville shuttle takes off. (00:33:40)

Training Day picture

Trigger Time - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: During the shoot-out near the end, the bullet holes in the pillars Frank and Kyle hide behind change and also disappear at various times. In one shot we see 2 holes when Kyle steps out to shoot, then when he ducks back when fired upon, the 2 holes are gone.

The Toll - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: Mason brings his unnamed son to the lake and acts like he is going to drown him. The baby is noticeably a doll in all but the scene where he kisses it. It is obvious from the way he is carrying it as well as the lack of movement.

Twin Peaks picture

Part 9 - S1-E9

Other mistake: When we first see Gordon aboard his jet, the shot of the jet from the outside is a flipped shot. Note the lettering on the right engine.

Judge Not - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The jacket Anna uses to put pressure on the judge's gunshots changes in the next shot. It becomes unfolded more even though she was applying pressure the whole time.

The Blacklist: Redemption picture

Borealis 301 - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Tom takes out the cipher key that was previously written on. But the cipher key used in the close up shots is different than the original. The words are spaced out and crossed out differently.

Imposters picture

Maybe/Definitely - S2-E5

Factual error: In the opening sequence when Maddie is supposedly driving from Michigan through Ohio and back to Pennsylvania, you can very briefly spot the reflection of a "TD Canada Trust" in the car window. This is because the show is actually shot in Vancouver. In the United States the company is simply known as "TD Bank", which doesn't operate any branches in either Michigan or Ohio. (00:01:55)

A Series of Unfortunate Events picture

The Bad Beginning: Part One - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode when the Baudelaires are in bed, the camera goes outside and pans down the front of the house. Once it reaches the next set of windows below the Baudelaires' "bedroom", the camera wobbles slightly.

The Last Post picture

Show generally

Factual error: Sergeant Baxter seems to be the senior NCO of the company. There appear to be no company sergeant major or staff sergeants. This is very odd, but particularly odd in the Royal Military Police, which is very NCO-heavy.

The Halcyon picture

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Factual error: Billy is called up into a specific unit of the Royal Artillery. This didn't happen. He would first have been sent to a Royal Artillery training depot and only after training would he have been assigned to a unit.

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Audio problem: Elaine refers to someone's "ChatsApp" account, but her lip movements show she is actually saying "WhatsApp." (00:13:55)

The Waiting Room - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Adrian is getting something from the snack machine, the cameraman can be seen in the snack machine's reflection. (00:26:30)

Show generally

Factual error: Johann Eck is dressed as a cardinal and Albrecht von Brandenburg addresses him as "Your Eminence" and kisses his ring. In reality, Eck was not a cardinal. Albrecht, however, was. It should be Eck showing deference to him, not vice versa. Albrecht was also only thirty, half the age of the actor playing him.

Little Boy Blue picture

Show generally

Factual error: ACC Pat Gallan wears the ribbon of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. The medal was issued in 2012. Her medals would be correct for 2017 when the series was made, but not 2007 when it is set.
