Unusual Suspects - S5-E3

Factual error: When Byers asks Langly to try under active cases to find Holly Modeski in the FBI database, Langly only presses two or three keys on a keyboard, which is obviously not enough to enter "Holly Modesky" to the search engine.

Shapes - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully talk about the piece of skin while driving to the reservation, one can see that there are green trees from the Mulder's side of the road, but when the shot is taken from the outside of the car, there are only grey bushes and landscape devoid of nearby trees on both sides of the road.

Piper Maru (1) - S3-E15

Factual error: At the beginning of the scene, XO Johanson is looking through the periscope. However, it is nonsense, because the submarine was in silent running, and the Japanese destroyer was circling it, so the sub must have cruised in deep submersion. The water depth there was approx. 270 meters, as the French salvage team claims at the beginning of the episode. There is rarely any significant light beyond 200 meters. Looking through the periscope in these conditions would be completely useless.

Lazarus - S1-E15

Factual error: When Mulder gives Scully the birthday card, she says that he is two months early. Given that Scully's birthday is on 23 February, the time of the episode should be sometime near Christmas. However, through the whole episode, there is no sign of Christmas time (not a single Christmas tree, no Christmas decorations, etc).

731 (2) - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the scene when the bomb is shown, in the lower part of the screen a moving red spot appears which probably comes from the reflection of the bomb's red diode in the camera.
