Adam Raised a Cain - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Some of the security cameras in the Weaver's household are in some rather odd locations. We see a camera's point of view of Savannah looking up through the glass table that she's doing her homework on, and a camera's point of view of Savannah hiding behind the TV. Besides the obvious need for John Henry to keep an eye on her, what is the need for these cameras? And where are they placed? Later on in the episode, when John Henry is talking to James Ellison about why he stopped looking for Sarah Connor, pretty much all of the cameras on the wall next to them are recycled shots from the actual show and couldn't possibly be from physical cameras due to their awkward angles.

Today is the Day (2) - S2-E19

Visible crew/equipment: When John gets back from seeing Riley's body, he sits down at the kitchen table in front of Sarah. Sarah tells him he shouldn't have gone. John then says, "It was a risk, I know". As he says this, the shadow of a boom mic can be seen on the wall behind him.

Serenity (2005)

Factual error: At the end of River's first fight scene, Simon says a phrase that renders River unconscious. The phrase is "Eta kuram na smekh" and means "This is laughter for chickens", or "This is absurd" in Russian according to Joss Whedon. However, the subtitles on the DVD for the phrase are "(SPEAKING CHINESE)", not "(SPEAKING RUSSIAN)" like they should be. In fact, shouldn't the subtitles just say "это курам на смех"? (00:35:45)

Battle Royale (2000)

Continuity mistake: In the first shot of Yuka Nakagawa as she covers her mouth after being poisoned with KCN by Yuko Sakaki, there is no blood on her hand as she has only just started to react to it. But in the closeup shot immediately afterwards there is blood already seeping through her fingers.

THGhost

Visible crew/equipment: As all the different realities start collapsing into one space, Kate goes to open one of the doors. As she climbs up to open it a boom mic is reflected in the door's shiny surface.

THGhost

Revealing mistake: When Kate opens one of the doors to find Simon on the other side ("Hello gorgeous, miss me? Huh? Come on in, the water's fine."), the shot of her climbing up to open the door is a recycled shot from 42 seconds earlier. It's pretty obvious as the shot still contains a mistake from when the shot was used previously - a boom mic is reflected in the door's shiny surface as Kate climbs up to open it. (01:18:40)

Ariel - S1-E8

Serenity (1) - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: When the camera follows a man through a curtain to reveal the Eavesdown Docks on Persephone, an extra in a white shirt, black vest and straw hat can be seen standing still on the left looking straight into the camera. He then looks away and starts walking. He was waiting for his cue from the director. Several seconds later, the same extra is seen again behind Mal and Kaylee walking in the opposite direction he was just going, giving the impression that the scene wasn't filmed on a location but in fact a small set and they could only afford so many extras.

Firefly (2002)

Objects in Space - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As the camera goes down through the ship to River standing on the catwalks in the cargo bay (eavesdropping on the crew as Kaylee tells them about how she killed the 3 guards on Niska's ship in War Stories), look at the kitchen table on the far right of the screen. There is a man with white hair bent over the table reading a book. He isn't part of the ship's crew, more likely part of the film crew.

Trash - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: After Durran calls the police and Mal and Saffron try to escape, they leave the Bellerophon Estates through a door which uses a crash bar to exit. However, when the guards arrive at the door, it has changed colour and has suddenly started using a regular handle.

THGhost

Gnothi Seauton - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Sarah lies to get Cameron away from the cop, the collar on Cameron's jacket is folded forwards over her neck as she walks down the alley with Sarah. She then tells Sarah that it's 13 miles to walk home and that they need another car. In the following shot, her collar is folded back towards her shoulders.

THGhost

Vick's Chip (1) - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Sarah, John, Cameron and Derek go looking for Barbara Chamberlain's body, they stumble upon Jessica Peck's body instead. Derek reads her ID and says, "Who the hell's Jessica Peck?" Cameron then says, "A threat to Skynet." As she says this, her hair is partially covering her right eye. But in the next shot it's tucked back behind her ear.

THGhost

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Cromartie flips the school bus over, a camera crew is reflected in the back window.

THGhost

Gnothi Seauton - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Cameron and the other Terminator fall through the window, the wall that they crash into indents on impact.

THGhost

What He Beheld (2) - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Derek shows John his past self playing baseball with Kyle Reese, Derek hits the ball towards John, John picks it up and then gives it to Kyle. As Derek hits the ball towards John, he is holding the bat at an upwards angle towards the right. But in the next shot of him, he is holding the bat at a downwards angle towards the left. The ball also travels in the opposite direction to what it did previously.

THGhost

Mr. Ferguson is Ill Today - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: In Cameron's Story, in the scene with her and Derek, Derek's phone rings. When he looks at the screen it shows a telephone number and the words "EDIT" and "BACK" in the bottom corners. The phone is not in fact ringing at all. Derek is merely looking at the details of a contact saved on the phone.

THGhost

What He Beheld (2) - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When we see all the SWAT officers lying dead in the swimming pool, there is blood coming from one, maybe two of the SWAT officers. But after Cromartie leaves, there is a noticeable increase in the amount of blood.

THGhost

The Good Wound - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: When Catherine Weaver is killing all the employees of Desert Canyon Heat and Air in its warehouse, some of the employees fall to the ground with no signs of any entry wounds or blood on their bodies.

THGhost

Samson & Delilah - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Sarah and John leave the chapel after attempting to disable Cameron, they run across the road and almost get hit by a car. Watch Sarah's face in the close up shot: she's trying not to laugh and is somewhat smiling.
