Andi Mack pictureAndi Mack mistake picture

Shhh! - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Andi walks into the library (this is not Andi's dream) it cuts to the librarian sitting at her desk and we can see the shot is flipped - note the bookcase and the librarian's buttons. (00:10:40)

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.

Godless picture

Show generally

Factual error: Two women come into town somewhere around San Luis Valley, Colorado with ring-necked Pheasants. The pheasants were brought into US a few times (East coast, CA) but really did not get established until late 1880s and in Colorado likely in the late 1890s (eastern and southwestern). The problem is it supposedly depicts the year 1880. They would more likely may have found some Gunnisons Sage-Grouse nearby or rabbits. (00:16:10)

The Buffer - S1-E3

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.

The Deuce picture

Show and Prove - S1-E2

Other mistake: The sign behind James Franco on the mirror behind the bar says, "Dinner Service Until 10pm". It's a modern paper printout and also a modern font, from a personal computer / printer which nobody would have at that time. (00:07:00 - 00:08:00)

The Good Doctor picture

Frontline, Part 2 - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Andrews tells Mrs. Cross via video chat that her husband has blood in his NG tube, the clock in the top left corner of Mrs. Cross' phone says 5:09. Two shots later, it has suddenly changed to 5:01. A few moments later it changes to 5:10, then back to 5:01 and then for some reason to 4:53 at the end of the scene.

Valor picture

Show generally

Factual error: Every Time the Shadow Raiders deploy to Somalia, they use a Blackhawk nicknamed "Adele" for their missions. I can understand the helos being transported via fixed-wing aircraft, but on their last mission they leave Georgia, and reach Somalia the same day, flying in the Blackhawks. It would take them some 15-20 hours not including fuel stops. Yet the mission is completed in the time it takes to find a bomb in downtown Atlanta.

King of Camp - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Deegs begin eating the hot peppers, Deegs starts by biting into half of one pepper, leaving half of the pepper remaining, but in the next shot, he is suddenly holding a whole pepper, with no signs of it being eaten.

The New Edition Story picture

Part 3 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end when they are singing Mr Telephone Man at the BET Awards, Ralph takes his jacket off towards the end of the song. When the song is over, they all take a bow and Ralph has his jacket on. When they finish bowing, you then see Ralph without his jacket going to the front of the stage to pick the jacket off the floor.

Star Wars Forces of Destiny picture

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.

Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman picture

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The protagonist finally receives the Anmitsu, breaking his orgasmic trepidation. In the close-up, the tray is really close to the teacup, but in the following shot it's definitely further away, to the point that Kantaro in facts moves it to the right, in the same position shown in the close-up. (00:12:15)
