Superstore (2015)

Costume Competition - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: In the first shot of Glen walking and the cart collector following him, everything appears as normal, however when the camera cuts to a longer shot, everything is now mirrored. (00:04:52)


14th Apr 2021

New Girl (2011)

3rd Mar 2021

The Good Place (2016)

The Snowplow - S3-E3

Factual error: When Chidi activates the superboard, one of the items under Local News is "Rep. Sackett indicted on 231 counts of fraud." Lower house members aren't referred to as Representatives in Australia, the correct title would be MP. (00:09:13)


19th Feb 2021

The Good Place (2016)

Somewhere Else - S2-E12

Factual error: As Eleanor walks in the corridor to Chidi's office at St. John's University, there's an exit sign mounted in the ceiling above her - a North American style red Exit sign. As she is in Australia, it should either a white on green Exit sign or an international "running man" style sign, as North American style signs were never legal in Australia. (00:20:55)

The Nanny (1993)

6th Oct 2020

Bones (2005)

The Murder in the Middle East - S10-E19

Continuity mistake: In all shots of Cam talking on her phone to Arastoo after the first, what's on the bottom of the phone is different to the first. Later, when she has the phone is on the table, what was on the bottom in the later shots is at the top of the phone, suggesting at some point she started talking on it upside down. (00:02:53 - 00:04:05)


28th Jun 2018

Frasier (1993)

The Botched Language of Cranes - S2-E6

Plot hole: Several times throughout the show, it's bought up that there is a seven second delay on Frasier's show at KACL, which, among other things, would allow Roz to "dump" the last seven seconds of what's been said and prevent it from being broadcast. When Roz notices that Frasier is still on the air during his rant, it takes her about nine seconds to get back to her console, so she should have been able dump the last seven seconds of his rant, leaving only the first few words of Frasier's rant (likely no more than "Good Grief, have you...") going to air, which would be much less awkward compared to his entire rant. (00:09:20 - 00:09:50)


15th Jun 2018

The Newsroom (2012)

5/1 - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: The stock footage of the airplane that Don, Sloan and Elliot are on is of a Boeing 747, a very large widebody plane. However, the internal shots of the plane suggest that it is actually a much smaller narrow body plane. (00:13:55)


16th Feb 2017

Frasier (1993)

Something About Dr. Mary - S7-E16

Audio problem: After Mary says "Except I bet you didn't walk through a metal detector to get to class", Frasier in that shot does not move his mouth in line with the dialog that he speaks, but instead appears to be laughing. Additionally in the next shot, although his mouth now matches his dialog, he is half way out of his seat despite being sat in it in the previous shot. (00:02:15)


16th Dec 2016

Gilmore Girls (2000)

Just Like Gwen and Gavin - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Lane spins the Doggy Swami wheel, the number 5 is at the top, and Lorelai removes the piece of paper under it. When it changes to the close up shot, the wheel now has the number 20 at the top with the piece of paper under it drawn. (00:40:15)


Dick Puts the Id in Cupid - S5-E11

Other mistake: While talking to his therapist, Dick tells her that one of the mishaps that he caused in his relationship with Mary was showing up to a fundraiser naked. While true, this doesn't happen until Episode 13 (Rutherford Beauty) - two episodes later. This was due to the fact that most of Season 5 was aired out of production order.


Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The show was produced in the right order, so this isn't a mistake. Being aired out of order isn't a mistake of the show. It should be noted that for each of the 6 season, episodes were constantly aired out of order.


Dick on a Roll - S3-E12

Trivia: Dick is never seen walking in this episode and is only in an upright position when he moves from the chair in the lounge room to the wheelchair in the opening scene. This is because John Lithgow hurt his ankle playing tennis, and the episode was written to allow him to be in a wheelchair for the entire episode.


20th Feb 2013

Will & Grace (1998)

Doctor Bashir, I Presume? - S5-E16

Character mistake: In the scene in Sisko's office where he has contacted Rear Admiral Bennett, Bennett says "Two hundred years ago, we tried to improve the species through DNA resequencing, and what did we get for our trouble? The Eugenics Wars." This puts the wars in the 22nd century, and differs from every other mention of them, where they occurred in the late 20th century, not the 22nd century as Bennett implies. (00:39:30 - 00:40:00)


Bad News - S6-E13

Trivia: Throughout the entire episode Bad News (Season 6, Episode 13), there's a number in every scene. These numbers are a countdown for the news that Marshall will get at the very end of the episode.


17th Jun 2011

Glee (2009)

Audition - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: While Will is holding Quinn to prevent her from attacking Santana after their fight, as Santana walks away, in one shot Quinn has her body is towards Will's: in the next, she's suddenly turned around and her body is now the other way. (00:29:50)


1st Apr 2011

Frasier (1993)

Match Game - S11-E18

Continuity mistake: The scene where Charlotte comes to Frasier in the restaurant to tell Frasier his date has cancelled is poorly edited between shots. Watch the folder once she has pulled it out: in almost every shot, the side facing the camera changes, and when Charlotte gets up, it disappears completely.


10th Mar 2011

Glee (2009)

8th Jan 2011

Glee (2009)

Mattress - S1-E12

Other mistake: When Finn and Rachel sing Smile in the Choir Room in Mattress (Season 1, Episode 12), Finn doesn't appear to look at any other page but the first one in the music given to him by Rachel. It is unlikely that the entire score for the song was on the first page.
