Helpless - S3-E12

Plot hole: When Buffy enters the house to rescue her mother she uses a stake to stop the front door from closing. A vampire then grabs it and the door closes. Why did Buffy use a stake knowing that there was a vampire there when she was almost killed by a vampire with her own stake earlier in the episode because Giles had been injecting her with a muscle relaxant?

Bad Girls - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Faith are fighting the vampires after going down the manhole, one of the vampires tries to drown Buffy. After she pretends to be dead and attacks him with a sword, her face and hair are almost bone dry.

THGhost

Helpless - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After Xander and Oz's "Kryptonite" conversation, Buffy tosses a book onto the table and stands up to leave. The book lands partially on top of another book and slides almost off it. In the next shot the book is lying on top of the other book perfectly.

Serenity (2005)

Continuity mistake: While Zoe determines the location of Miranda, there are two shots of Jayne with his arms down by his sides - one where he is standing behind Inara and one with Wash in the foreground. When it cuts back to the shot of him standing behind Inara, his left hand is on his belt. His hand then returns to its original place when it cuts back to Wash. (01:04:20)

Firefly (2002)

Serenity (1) - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Wash tells Zoë to be careful as they touch down on the Eavesdown Docks on Persephone, a hand can been seen pulling the Mule down Serenity's ramp in the bottom right corner of the shot as Wash leaves.

Serenity (2005)

Continuity mistake: When the cast are at the Miranda colony and discover that everyone is dead, there is a rotating shot of River as she realises what happened. Prior to this there is a brief closeup shot of the rest of the cast as they turn to face her. Jayne turns to his right, but in the following rotating shot of River he has turned from his left. (01:16:30)

Day 8: 1:00 P.M. - 2:00 P.M. - S8-E22

Continuity mistake: Day 8: 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m: When Chloe frees Cole from the detention cell she closes the door behind her. But once they're finished talking and they turn to leave the door is suddenly open again.

THGhost

Killed By Death - S2-E18

Other mistake: In the basement when Death throws Ryan to the floor, Ryan lands pretty softly considering that he was just thrown pretty hard.

THGhost

Passion - S2-E17

Audio problem: Jenny prints off the translation for the Ritual of Restoration from her computer, then spots Angel sitting across the room from her. As she gets up and starts walking towards him the sound of the printer can be heard but the paper has already finished printing.

THGhost

Anne - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Near the end after freeing the prisoners, Buffy fends off Ken's henchmen on a raised platform. At some point during the fight she is grabbed by one of the henchmen and punched in the stomach by two others. She then breaks free and throws one of them off the raised platform - onto a large crash mat. Please note that this is a separate mistake to the one already submitted as it is talking about a different crash mat.

THGhost

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When George shoots Mrs. Frank, her body falls off the balcony headfirst on a closeup shot. She flips in the air once on her way down. But in the following wide shot, she flips in the air on her way down again.

THGhost

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Visible crew/equipment: After the history teacher writes, "Don't walk away from me, bitch!" on the chalk board, Buffy says to Xander, "I'm telling you, something weird is going on." As she says "something", a boom mic is reflected in the window behind her on the right.

THGhost

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Angel, Drusilla and The Judge enter the mall, The Judge kills a pedestrian as he tries to get away. But no other pedestrians that are in the mall notice - A big blue guy just set a man on fire and disintegrated him into tiny pieces in a public mall and NOBODY noticed?

THGhost

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Sid stabs Marc after he has transformed, there is no blood on the knife that he uses afterwards.

THGhost

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Other mistake: When Sid gets into Buffy's bed and Buffy screams, her mum immediately comes into her room to find out what's wrong. Now, unless she sleeps on the landing, Buffy's mum is really quick at getting out of bed.

THGhost

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is fighting the vampires that are trying to resurrect The Master, at one point she is grabbed from behind by a male vampire and kicks a female vampire in a green top twice (right after Absalom shouts "The sacrifices! Stop them!"). If you watch closely, both of the kicks miss the vampire, revealing that the fight was choreographed. The punch that she delivers to the male vampire afterwards also looks fake.

THGhost

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy, Willow, Xander and Giles all agree that Morgan is their one suspect, a camera and a cameraman can be seen in the reflection of the glass in the door labeled "Librarian", right after Buffy says, "Uh, priority check, Giles." A boom mic is also reflected in the top right of the glass when Buffy finishes her line with "talent show murder!" The mic can be seen throughout the rest of the scene from two different camera angles.

THGhost

Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: As Buffy goes through the door with the "Keep Out" sign on it, the shadow of a camera can be seen on the left side of the door in the last few frames of the shot.

THGhost

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Buffy breaks into the locker, the locker is already damaged. Probably from a previous take.

THGhost

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Willow opens the door to the basement to look for Buffy, the shot looking up the basement's staircase shows Willow's shadow on the inside of the door. In the previous shot when she opened the door, it opens towards a wall and a staircase to the second floor. But there is no light source coming from the wall or the staircase, giving the impression that the basement was filmed on a separate set.
