Angel (1999)

Untouched - S2-E4

Trivia: In the episode 'Untouched' Angel asks Cordelia 'Do you have any idea how hard it is to think when you've got a rebar through you?', her reply of 'Actually, I do. Benefits of a Sunnydale education' is a reference to the BTVS episode 'Lover's Walk', in which Cordy falls through a staircase and is impaled on a rebar.

Trivia: Many elements of Xander's dream in 'Restless', season 4, were seen again in the season 6 episode 'Tabula Rasa'. In the dream, Spike wears a tweed suit and tells Xander he's in training to be a Watcher (Giles adds "Spike's like a son to me."), also mentioning 'A shark, but on land. A land shark'. In 'Tabula Rasa' Spike is under threat from a loan shark (literally a shark), disguises himself in a tweed suit and after a spell gone wrong believes he might be Giles' son.

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: According to Giles in 'Revelations' there are 12 cemeteries in Sunnydale, but in 'Becoming Part 1', amongst others, Buffy agrees to meet someone (Angelus in this case) in 'the cemetery'. If there are 12 in the city, how would they know which one she means? (00:35:40)

Trivia: There have been several lines throughout the series have referred to Tuesday ('There's a demon trying to destroy the world and it's just another Tuesday night in Sunnydale' in Revelations and 'Dawn's in trouble. Must be Tuesday' in Once More With Feeling). These are references to the fact that, in the USA, Buffy is aired on a Tuesday.

Shay

Trivia: Buffy's prophetic dreams gave several hints about Dawn long before her arrival. In 'Graduation Day, Part 2', season 3, dream Faith tells her 'little sis' is coming', and in 'Restless', season 4, dream Tara warns her 'Be back before Dawn'.

Angel (1999)

Ground State - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: In 'Ground State' when Gwen is walking towards the lift in Irwin's building you can see Angel's reflection on the shiny door. Vampires don't have reflections, as is demonstrated at various other times in this show.

Shay

Anne - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the episode 'Anne' Kenn tells Buffy that time in his hell dimension passes more quickly, that one day on Earth is the same as 100 years in his dimension. This means time goes roughly 36,000 times quicker. When Lily falls into the portal, it's at least 10 seconds until Buffy jumps in after her, but Lily is still just sitting there looking stunned. If times moves that much faster, 10 seconds would become over 4 days. Would Lily still have been just sitting there?

Shay

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Anne' when the latest people to be brought into hell are lined up with a demon talking to them, there are 3 or 4 people standing between Buffy and Lily. When the demon asks them all in turn 'Who are you?' we see him asking Lily and after that the shot rests on Buffy, but in the background we only hear him ask one more person before he gets to Buffy. (00:35:50)

Shay

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Becoming, part 1' as Buffy kneels over Kendra's corpse you can see the door over her shoulder, it stays closed all the time. There is a cut to a shot of Buffy from behind showing a cop raising his gun, but he couldn't have come through the door without us seeing him in the last shot. (00:43:10)

Shay

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Trivia: In 'Once More, With Feeling' the woman singing about her parking ticket is played by Marti Noxon, the executive producer.

Shay

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Trivia: In 'Once More, With Feeling' the man singing the mustard song is David Fury, the co-executive producer.

Will & Grace (1998)

Cheaters (1) - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Grace is telling Will about his dad's affair, she mentions that he grabbed the other woman's ass when she brought him a packet of Goobers during the interval. The thing is, she sees them for the first time during the interval, and we see the conversation that follows. The mistress brings him wine, not Goobers, and he doesn't grab her ass.

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: After Buffy has entered the wasp-filled school there's a shot of the others standing outside waiting for her. In the establishing long shot if you look closely you can see they used the same shot as earlier in the episode - Buffy is standing there with them. (00:34:10)

Shay

Amends - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: During season 7 we are told several times that the First cannot take corporeal form, ie. it cannot touch things. However, in its first appearance in the season 3 episode 'Amends', when it manifests as Jenny Calender and runs its fingers through Angel's hair you can see his hair moving underneath her fingers. It wouldn't be able to do this if it weren't corporeal. (00:15:50)

Shay

Faith, Hope And Trick - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: During Faith's fight outside the Bronze in 'Faith, Hope and Trick' when she stakes the vampire, if you watch carefully, you can see the rubber stake bending. (00:15:20)

Edtv (1999)

Continuity mistake: When Ed sees Sherri outside the video store he drops a big pile of videos, but there's no sound of them hitting the floor. Then when he is about to open the door they've disappeared. (01:39:05)

Phases - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Willow is running from the werewolf she falls and there's a big mud stain on her pants. In the next scene when she runs into the library it's gone. (00:37:00)

Shay

Chosen - S7-E22

Revealing mistake: In the last episode, 'Chosen', Anya beheads two Ubervamps. The second time she swings the sword it very noticably doesn't go anywhere near the Ubervamp's neck, closer to its stomach.

Shay

What's My Line? (1) - S2-E9

Plot hole: If Spike and his gang only take a few hours to break through the door to Ford's club in 'Lie To Me' (which we are told is six feet of solid steel), why can't Angel break through a thin wire door that visibly shakes every time he hits it, given the same amount of time? (00:38:05)

What's My Line? (1) - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is fighting Kendra the fragments of the table she is thrown onto have disappeared when she stands up again. (00:42:40)
