Factual error: In the courtroom scene, the Judge uses a gavel (the small wooden hammer). These are not, and have never been, used in British courts.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When Jack fights the impostor, they are roughly the same height, but when the impostor is revealed to be Angelica, she is suddenly much shorter than him. (00:21:30 - 00:23:50)

THGhost

Revealing mistake: When Blackbeard threatens Jack with a pistol, he is heard cocking it, but when he holds it up to the camera we can see that it is only on half-cock. A pistol cannot be fired in the half-cock position, nor can it be loaded in the fired position, implying that either it is not loaded, or a technical error has been made by the film makers.

THGhost

Question: Philip is supposedly killed by Blackbeard and then wounded in battle later in the film. How does he manage to survive and show very little signs of being injured?

THGhost

Chosen answer: He was stabbed with the same tranquilizer that Jack was shot with, to make him appear to have been killed when he was in actuality completely unharmed. He reacted appropriately to the wound received later too. Stomach wounds hurt like mad, but it is possible for them to take a very long time to kill you if they are mortal wounds.

Angel (1999)

Judgment - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Right after Cordelia has her vision, Wesley goes to the whiteboard. In the "Case" column he writes "N.D.U.O." underneath what looks like "CARYNSS" crossed out. But once they find out that it is a Prio Motu demon and Angel writes it on the whiteboard, "N.D.U.O." disappears even though Angel did not rub it off.

Angel (1999)

Judgment - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Angel writes "Prio Motu" on the whiteboard and says that they need to find it and narrow it down to somewhere, Wesley says "I may be able to help us with that." In the immediate closeup of Angel, his stance has suddenly changed. In the previous shot he was standing with his arms straight down and his hands close together, but in the closeup they appear to be as though he has his hands on his hips.

Revealing mistake: When Faith stabs and kills the demon sent to kill her, there is a brief shot when Angel picks himself up off the floor, where we can see the knife that she is holding is bent like it is made of rubber.

War Zone - S1-E20

Audio problem: Towards the end of the episode when Cordelia tells Wesley that she might want to prostitute herself to David Nabbit, her lip movements don't match the words "he's a nice guy who wants companionship".

Continuity mistake: Angel's bullet wound changes sides twice whilst fighting Trepkos. Once after Cribb steals the key from Wesley and again after Angel shows mercy to Trepkos.

Visible crew/equipment: Right after Ruth says to Kathy that Tommy has changed, there is a shot of Miss Geraldine walking down a corridor holding some sort of bird and some paintings. When the camera cuts to behind her, the shadow of the camera filming her can be seen on the wall on the bottom right of the screen as it followers her down the corridor.

Parting Gifts - S1-E10

Character mistake: When the bidding for Cordelia in the auction reaches $20,000, somebody bids for $30,000 after the auctioneer has said "going once, going twice" and they end up winning. The auctioneer should have in fact restarted saying "going once, going twice" after the $30,000 bid was made.
