The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: Spike tells Buffy about drugs the Initiative would give him when his chip started firing after he was first captured. This is wrong in two ways: firstly, we saw most of Spike's time in captivity, and he escaped before they could drug him, and secondly, he didn't even know he had a chip until he escaped and tried to kill Willow.

Day 4: 9:00 P.M.-10:00 P.M. - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Chloe tells Michelle that she's confirmed Marwan's identity using voice tags from McLennan Forrester, but all of the computer records at MF were wiped out a few episodes earlier by the EMP, according to both the MF employees and CTU. The fact that they didn't get any information from the company except for the printouts Jack and Paul extracted was a major plot point a few hours ago, so even if a real EMP wouldn't do this, the fact that it's stated repeatedly in the show means it should hold true within the series; Chloe suddenly having information from them an hour or so later is discontinuous, and thus a mistake.

Boy Meets World (1993)

Better than Average Cory - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Cory first confronts Shawn over kissing Topanga in their dorm room, Shawn is looking through his drawer for a shirt. The shot goes to Cory for a second, then when it goes back to Shawn he's had time to find a shirt and put it on - the shot wasn't off him for nearly enough time to do that.

Angel - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Buffy leaves the Bronze (right before the Three attack her) to go home, she passes a strange-looking green-lit window. After the attack, she and Angel run past this window again, even though they're heading in the same direction Buffy was going anyway.

Day 4: 12:00 P.M.-1:00 P.M. - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Day Four: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM. When Tariq and Behrooz are shown in split-screen digging Debbie's grave right after the commercial break (12:54:10 by the show's clock), Tariq's white t-shirt is covered in dirt. When the shot goes back to them a minute or so later, Tariq's t-shirt is much cleaner.

Angel (1999)

A Hole in the World - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Gunn is talking to Wesley near the start of the episode, he mentions that he's tracked Lindsay down, and that he's been living under the name "Doyle", and holds out the lease of his apartment. There's a close-up of the lease a few seconds later, in which the name "Lindsay McDonald" can be seen.

Smallville (2001)

Crusade - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Clark drops the photo of Jonathon, the frame breaks and the photo can be seen separate from it and face-down. When Martha finds it later on, the frame is still intact and the photo is perfectly positioned face-up inside it.

Shay

Wrecked - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: The episode begins the morning after Buffy and Spike first have sex. That night, Willow and Amy go out again to find Rack's place, and this cuts directly to Willow waking up the next morning. But later in the episode, Spike makes repeated references to what happened between him and Buffy "last night", when in fact it was two nights ago.

Shay

Hush - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: The first night that the Gentlemen float through the college, they are on the 2nd floor one minute (all the room numbers start with 2), then they turn a corner and are suddenly outside room 118, a floor below.

Shay

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is told that Angel has become Angelus, she mentions "I should have known. When I saw him at the house he was different", but her earlier conversation with him took place not at the house but at his apartment. This isn't just a strange turn of phrase - the scene was originally shot at the Summers house, but was changed to Angel's apartment for more emotional resonance.

Shay

Earshot - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is trying to read Angel's mind, his chain goes from being inside to outside his vest between shots.

Charmed (1998)

Power Outage - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: During the training drill, Piper fumbles for a knife on a table in front of her. In the shot of the table, she loses hold of the knife as she pulls her hand up, but when we cut to a long shot, it is back in her hand.

Charmed (1998)

Ex Libris - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: After the ghost chases Gibbs out of his pawn shop, and the police arrest him, his shirt goes from being on fully to half-off between shots (particularly noticeable when Tyra's father tells him to burn in hell).

Charmed (1998)

Ex Libris - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is talking to the ghost in the library, the librarian goes from writing to glaring at her and back again between various shots.

The Succubus (a.k.a. Chef's Mama) - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Kenny's head is completely smashed when he is attacked in the church during Chef's and the succubus' wedding, but it is whole again when Cartman brings it to the optometrist to get an eye transplant.

Shay

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Anyanka's demon face in "The Wish" is very different to her demon face any of the other times we see her ("Entropy", "Selfless" etc).

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Prue runs into Susan Trudeau at the restaurant, she asks if she's Andy's sister, only to find she's his ex-wife. But Prue knew Andy all through high school - she would have known he didn't have a sister. (00:12:25)

Shay

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley, he mentions that the murder took place "last night". In "Bad Girls", we see Buffy visiting Faith the day after the murder, and that night is presumably when she has the dream about drowning, so by the time the detective is asking this question it is actually two nights after the murder, not one.

Shay

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the basement scene, when Jack and Xander face off over the ticking bomb, the number of beeps is hugely disproportionate to the seconds ticking down.
