The Wildcats - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Julie says 'We're gonna stand and fight' near the end of the episode, a boom mike briefly creeps into view at the top of the screen.

The Wildcats - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When the two wildcats throw hand grenades at the Visitors, the grenades are obviously fake because the explosions do not occur at the same place as where the grenades land. The detonations have obviously been located in a safe place away from the actors.

The Champion - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: When James' craft touches down outside the Sheriff's office, the wires suspending it from above are visible.

V (1984)

The Champion - S2-E14

Plot hole: In the opening scene we see Mike and Kyle driving in the truck. Kyle remarks that Mike has been driving since midnight and it is broad daylight outside. So they have supposedly been driving for several hours. Yet they start talking about their mission as if they have only just got in to the truck. As anyone who has been in that kind of situation knows, everyone always discusses the important stuff at the start of the journey, so it is clear that the scene has been poorly scripted.

The Champion - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: An obvious stunt double replaces Marc Singer when he kicks the sheriff's shotgun out of his hand, and also when the truck drives into the lake.

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Deliberate mistake: The shot of Willy running away from the parked car is taken from the episode where Elias is killed. Two things give this away - 1) Willy is wearing a different coloured jacket and 2) he is supposed to be seriously injured yet he sprints along the street.

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Audio problem: When Ham grabs Howie's armband and says 'our man' it's painfully obvious that the words have been dubbed by Marc Singer instead of Michael Ironside.

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: When John is holding the two mice, if you watch his left arm closely you can see his arm jerk beneath the table where he replaces the real mouse with an edible one.

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Charles reads the message about Nathan Bates coming out of the coma, there are two things to look for during the closeup of the note. The logo on the top is replaced by writing and he grips the note in a different position from before. The writing changes yet again when the note is seen from behind.

The Hero - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Lydia eats the worm, it is not moving in the bowl before being picked up and is a different colour to all the moving ones. Needless to say it is not a real worm.

The Hero - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: Several times during the Charles v Mike fight scene it is obvious that Charles has been replaced by a stunt double.

The Conversion - S2-E10

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the mothership landing bay and the arrival of Charles' ship is stock footage that has been used several times before. There is also a continuity error here - the view from the landing bay shows darkness outside, but the next shot shows broad daylight.

The Conversion - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Chris and Ham are sitting down talking about the conversion process, Ham gets up and walks over to the map. When he turns around Chris is suddenly standing in front of him, whereas he should still be sitting down.

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Revealing mistake: The two Elizabeths are both played by the same actress, except in the shots where both are seen together. Continuity mistakes in the second Elizabeth's death scene reveal this, such as the second Elizabeth's head position changing, and the first Elizabeth's jacket being open/closed between shots.

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Audio problem: When Julie walks into Nathan Bates' office and says 'I've got a question for you' her lips do not match what is heard.

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the cocoon gestating is taken from episode 2. This is evident because there is sand underneath it and rocks in the background, but when the tracker finds it later, there are no rocks and sand in the tunnel.

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Elizabeth is pricked by the rose, there is a closeup of her bleeding finger. Before and after this shot Kyle is holding her hand, but not in the closeup.
