Hereafter (2010)

Revealing mistake: At the book fair, Marcus briefly pauses to listen to Derek Jacobi's book reading. When he walks away, the camera follows an extra to her seat. If you watch when she enters the scene from behind the sign, the extra hesitates until the actor playing Marcus walks away, which is apparently her cue. (01:43:45)

Something Beautiful - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The Salamancas brothers burn Arturo's body inside his car. When the brothers leave, there is a scenic tree a short distance down the road from the burning car. It balances the shot. When the camera angle changes to a wide view, there are no trees anywhere near the car.

The Sopranos (1999)

Nobody Knows Anything - S1-E11

Character mistake: When Tony tells Dr. Melfi he feels as though a safe might fall on his head, she replies, "a feeling of pending doom." A woman of her intellect and education should know the proper word is "impending." "Pending" means something awaiting a conclusion. "Impending" means about to occur.

Sunk Costs - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Mike sets a trap to taint a cartel's truck with drug residue. First, he inserts a bag of cocaine in a shoe, then throws the pair of shoes over a telephone wire. His plan is to shoot the hanging shoe so the cocaine powder pours out onto the truck as it passes under the wire. However, when he inserts the drugs it is in the right shoe, but later, it is the left shoe he shoots and has the powder in it. (00:29:30 - 00:38:00)

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Walt is driving down a deserted road singing "A Horse with No Name." You can see the roadway behind him through the hole in the headrest. At first, the road is empty. But then a white vehicle quickly approaches. The camera angle changes and there are no vehicles behind him, but a police car coming from the opposite direction passes and makes a u-turn. When the camera angle is back inside Walt's car, the white vehicle turns out to be the police car that just made a u-turn. (00:01:00)

Pretty Much Dead Already - S2-E7

Other mistake: Dale threatens to shoot Shane, and Shane walks right up to him until the barrel of Dale's rifle is against his chest. Just before Shane walks up to him, you can see the imprint of the rifle muzzle on Shane's shirt from an earlier take. (00:32:50)

Breaking Bad (2008)

Buyout - S5-E6

Stupidity: Toward the end of the episode, MIke uses a plastic zip tie to bind Walt to a radiator. To escape, Walt bites the end off an extension cord and uses the electrical current to burn through the plastic zip tie, but he does so against his wrist, burning himself in the process. It would have been much smarter to burn the plastic zip tie where it wrapped around the metal radiator rather than around his wrist. (00:41:00)

Continuity mistake: Just after Hank crushes Leonel's legs by backing into him, Marco starts shooting into Hank's Jeep. You can see Hank crawling into the rear seat to escape through the side door.
