Chadwick's Angels - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Deborah is talking to Mrs. Chadwick, Mrs. Chadwick's hair keeps changing position and is either covering or not covering her name tag. And when the camera is on Deborah, we still see Mrs. Chadwick's head and she doesn't move it at all.

Borealis 301 - S1-E5

Episode #2.8 - S2-E8

Factual error: In the opening seconds of the intro the BTK killer is following a woman home in his work van. Both the woman and BTK have license plates on the front of their vehicles. Kansas does not use front license plates. (Also, BTK's van shows the county abbreviation on the plate as WY - Wyandotte County - where Kansas City, KS is located nearly 200 miles away. The county tag abbreviation should be SG for Sedgwick County).

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.

Ashes, Ashes - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Spoiler! At the end of the episode, after Elektra decapitates Alexandra, the blood pattern on her changes changes when she turns around and asks "any questions?" Most noticeably more blood on her forehead and two streaks down her chin that suddenly appear. (00:49:10)

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.

In Another Life - S2-E3

Deliberate mistake: The police force in the town is the Gendarmerie, the standard issued firearm is the Sig Sauer P2022 in 9mm. The police officers on this show carry a Beretta and not the 9x19mm one which is the model 92fs, they carry a never issued Beretta 84 chambered in .32 acp or 9mm short. Plus they use some weird holster where the gun arches out and hangs low like a cowboy holster and dangles around. Easy for a suspect to gain control of the officers gun and this happened in this episode.

Sands of Jakku - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: As Rey tells BB-8 that he can stay with her, you see the droid behind her from a frontal view. When it cuts to a side angle of BB-8, the lines and details on the side of it's head close to it's "eye" change with more lines appearing, the orange rectangles at the bottom become taller, and the white rectangle box moves higher up. Also in the side view there is some black cone sticking out of what would be BB-8's "face." If it's his eye it's now suddenly sticking out way too far and isn't that extended. If it's the little censor thing that is next to his eye then it's now on the wrong side of his head. (00:00:25)

Himmel und Hölle picture

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.
