Battleship (2012)

Factual error: With about 20 minutes left in the movie, after they show them carrying the shell to the 16" gun, they show the gun barrel being raised to firing position and then being loaded and then fired. The Iowa class battleships 16" guns can only be loaded in the down position.

Flap (1970)

Other mistake: A little more than halfway through the movie, they are robbing the train cars by uncoupling and switching the switch direction back and forth to direct the unwanted engine and caboose to the left branch. He switches the switch to go right for the wanted cars and forgets to switch it for the caboose. If you look at the tracks of the switch, it is already set for the train to go left. He then remembers to change the switch and the caboose goes left where it would have already gone.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, the line in the play is "The princess is here" an a carpet pulls down the stairs and across the stage. The carpet is a straight line down the stairs. They cut away and when they go back, the carpet is neatly folded into the stairs so the princess can walk down them.

McHale's Navy (1962)

PT 73 Where Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Halfway through the show, they get caught not having the boat, and McHale gets taken by boat to the commander's office. As he leaves the pier, he drops the rope on the seat next to him, they do a close-up and the rope is behind him about 5 feet away.

Adam-12 (1968)

Log 1: The Impossible Mission - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: Halfway through the episode, they are chasing car thieves in a drainage channel. The thief's car comes to the end of the road and crashes into a deeper gully. You can see that the windshield has been taken out of the car, although it was previously there. They cut away and when they come back, parts of the windshield are back in the car, but the whole center is missing.

Adam-12 (1968)

Goober Takes a Car Apart - S5-E17

Factual error: Halfway through the show, Goober takes the motor out of the car and they start it up in the Sheriff's office. If you look at the direction of the fan, it would be blowing the air forward instead of towards the rear of the engine. It would be fighting the air coming through the radiator instead of pulling it.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, John Wayne says to run silent and dive deep, but the outside shots continually show them to only be about 25 feet above the bottom.

Continuity mistake: Sometimes when they are looking through the periscope, the sub view is going the opposite direction than the periscope view is.

The Big House - S3-E32

Revealing mistake: The jailed criminals take the key and open the jail cell door. The problem is the dead bolt never moves with the key, showing the door was never locked to begin with.

Good Times (1974)

Willona, the Fuzz - S5-E6

Other mistake: JJ says that everybody else in the office just has to look at their watch when the boss asks them the time but he has to go outside down the block because he can't afford a watch. Throughout the whole scene, you can see a wristwatch on his right wrist. He even raises his arm where his sleeve moves to his elbow to show it. It looks like a pretty expensive watch too. (00:05:00)

Good Times (1974)

A Stormy Relationship - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: 1/3 through the program, Michael is given his father's tool belt by his mom and he puts the strap on his shoulder. The next shot and for a few after, the strap is gone. Then it comes back again.

Trivia: Amy's apartment number is 314, ie. Pi (well, a variation - 3.14...). Very fitting.

Star Trek (1966)

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: About 4/5 through the show, while the Vulcan is being killed, if you look at Lincoln's wrist, you can see his makeup line.

The Killer Robot Instability - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the show, the big robot is chasing the other robot down the hallway. The camera starts to zoom in as the robots come by it. The big robot stops just before the camera zoom is past it, yet they keep running down the hallway like the robot is still going.

The Brady Bunch (1969)

The Private Ear - S3-E9

Factual error: About 1/3 through the show, Greg has to talk to Marcia and asks Peter to leave. On the way out Peter stops to start recording on the tape recorder. He only pushes the play button. He would have had to push the red record and play button to record their conversation.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: If you look at the marble patterns on the walls, they are all exactly the same from floor to floor. Also the bricks oddities on the stairway match from floor to floor. They change lights, elevator tape etc. but it's the same floor used over and over as different floors.

Frasier (1993)

Leapin' Lizards - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: Halfway through the episode, the new station manager says she has to fire someone. If you look at the top of the screen by the white box on the wall, you can see the boom mike.
