Quantum Leap (1989)

Leaping in Without a Net - November 18, 1958 - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: In practice, when Sam's sister tries to do the triple and he misses her, the wide angle shot shows that she is already below Sam's arms when she reaches out. But when it cuts to a close shot, she is able to almost catch his arms.

Leaping in Without a Net - November 18, 1958 - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: Throughout the show, the big top changes from one with many blue stripes on the ceiling, to one with a couple of blue stripes and a dark center, and back again.

All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

Good Night, Dear Heart - November 9, 1957 - S2-E17

Audio problem: When Sam and the Sheriff are on the dock the Sheriff is talking through a shot into the next one, except his mouth isn't moving during the last seconds of his line.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Pool Hall Blues - September 4, 1954 - S2-E18

Revealing mistake: After Al comes back when the power is turned on, Sam wins a game, breaks for the next and then we see a wide angle shot and the noise is made when Al shows Sam where to shoot. But the beam doesn't appear, even though the shot is seen by viewers.

Good Night, Dear Heart - November 9, 1957 - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Sam is at the graveside, snow is falling and a close-up shot shows Sam covered in snow, but the wide angle shot shows little to no snow on him.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Pool Hall Blues - September 4, 1954 - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: After the bad guy tries to hit the granddaughter with the pool cue, Sam grabs it. In the wide angle shot it shows Sam's left hand about 6-8 inches from the middle (where the dark wood inlay is), but in the next close-up shot, his hand is only about 2 inches from the middle.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Almost every time Sam looks in a mirror or the viewer sees Sam in a mirror, the movements of Sam and Sam's "reflection" hardly ever match up correctly as if it were Sam's real reflection.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when the Russian troops are rushing headlong at the Germans, there is an obvious cut in one shot as several people shift places and one Russian just disappears.

Her Charm - September 26, 1973 - S2-E15

Audio problem: When the two bad guys are chasing the girl through the dark forest, one says "it's too dark," the girl screams, and the other says, "who needs light?" - but both say these without moving their lips.

All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In one play during the montage sequence of the championship game, the quarterback for the Jaguars (Sam) is number 15 - but he wears 12 throughout the rest of the show. This is Sam, because Al later tells him to quit, so he's been playing the whole game.

So Help Me God - July 29, 1957 - S2-E9

Factual error: At one point when Sam is visiting Delilah in the courthouse he is hugging her and the Sheriff guarding the door comes in and sees them. As the sheriff is leaving, he has a patch on his arm that says "County Sheriff." As this episode took place in Louisiana, there would only be Parish Sheriffs, not a County Sheriff.

Her Charm - September 26, 1973 - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: After the bad guys attack the laundry truck and the girl starts throwing bags out of the truck, one sees in the close up shot a bullet-ridden gray door, but in the wide angle shot it's a pristine brown door.

Quantum Leap (1989)

Her Charm - September 26, 1973 - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: After throwing the laundry bags out the back of the truck, close up shots on Sam and the girl show the back of the truck being relatively empty. However, the next shot from the rear of the truck has the back full of laundry bags again.

All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Ruben are fighting in the locker room they knock over a set of lockers (and only one set) and the door flies open on it. When they roll over the set of lockers the camera cuts and 2 sets of lockers are suddenly knocked down with all locker doors closed.

All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In the party after the 1st game when Chewie and Sam are talking about the championship, Chewie pulls up a chair and sits on it backwards with his hands in his lap. After the cut to another camera, his arms are up on the back of the chair.

Quantum Leap (1989)

All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

Audio problem: During the speech where Al tells Sam to quit (to force Chewie to play), Sam says he can't quit but his mouth doesn't move for a couple seconds after the words start playing.

Fahrenheit 932 - S1-E12

Deliberate mistake: When the runner is shot in the back of the head in the SUV, the bullet has come out the front of his head. However, blood is seen on the windshield instead of a bullet hole where the bullet would have continued to go through the glass.
