Enlightened (2011)

Now or Never - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Amy picks up her book from the trash her thumb is on the front cover. When the camera cuts and she hands the book to her co-worker, her thumb is on the back cover.

Breaking Bad (2008)

Breaking Bad mistake picture

Green Light - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Hank is standing between the ATM and the pumps at the gas station, the shadow cast by the roof over the pumps shifts between shots. The shot from away, taken next to the pole with the Indian logo was taken earlier in the day, casting a long shadow. The other shots have a higher sun which has moved by several hours.

God Bless America (2011)

Visible crew/equipment: When Frank enters his office a boom mike dips into view for a split second, when the camera pans away from his co-workers laughing about the American Superstar contestant.


16th Jul 2012

American Reunion (2012)

Continuity mistake: When Jim is talking to Kara at the end of the movie, her hair changes position with every shot. From covering her entire shoulder to not covering her shoulder at all.


29th Dec 2011

Revenge (2011)

Treachery - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Jack is pouring Amanda a drink at the end of the episode he has a bottle in each hand. In the next shot he has only one, with his other hand holding the shaker.

Dexter (2006)

Chase (2010)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Season 1, episode 17, "The Man at the Altar". When Annie is getting dressed after sleeping with Crowley, what she is wearing, how she is wearing it and where her arms are changes between each shot.

The Chicago Code (2011)

Black Sox - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When the detectives are in pursuit in the alley, they are followed by a police car. In all shots from the front it has its blue lights on, while they are off in all shots from the rear.

Southland (2009)

Code 4 - S3-E4

Audio problem: When detective Bryant gets rough while interrogating the suspect of the shooting he tells him to sit down. When we cut to a different angle we hear him repeat the last few words of his sentence.


Other mistake: When Larry crosses the street, when going to the museum for the first time, the traffic light for pedestrians is red the entire time. Yet he and other pedestrians casually cross the street (he even stops for a bit) while the yellow cabs don't make any attempt at driving off (although their light should be green). Although there's a small gap between one light turning red and the other turning green, it takes close to 10 seconds while nobody appears to be in any rush.

Burn Notice (2007)

Dead or Alive - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Michael has his gun on the dirty cops head, the gun is resting on his forehead and Michaels hand is on his throat. In the next shot the gun is right between the cops eyes, and his hand is on his chest. This keeps going back and forth a few times.


Blood Moon - S11-E3

Continuity mistake: When Nick is talking to Catherine about what happened at the night of the murder he folds his arms. In the next show they are unfolded. Although you can't see his arms entirely, it becomes clear from the position of his shoulders and the wrinkle in the middle of his shirt that instantly disappears.


29th Dec 2010

Sons of Anarchy (2008)

AK-51 - S1-E6

Audio problem: When Gemma is talking to Clay in jail there's a shot "en profil" in which we only see the silhouette of her face. When Clay sits down you can see she's saying something, while the only sound we hear is Clay exhaling.


Shock Waves - S11-E1

Revealing mistake: When the bomber is shot in front of the store, he is standing in front of a shop window. It's highly unlikely that the window wouldn't get hit and shatter. The cops fire at least a couple of dozen rounds, and magically they all hit the body, nobody misses in the heat of the moment, and no bullets exit the body from the back.


Doctor Who (1) - S10-E22

Revealing mistake: When Nick is in the shed in the desert, sunlight is coming in through hundreds of holes in the walls and roof. Since the sun is in one spot, all beams of light should be in the general same direction. In this scene they come from at least 5 different directions, with some originating from a light source very close to the outer wall (causing beams in a radial pattern).


28th Jan 2010

Bones (2005)

The Proof in the Pudding - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: When Booth is talking to his boss at the diner, the latter is chewing on his mouth full of food when shot from the right, and has an empty mouth when shot from the left. This happens every time the shot changes angles. (00:11:30)

Blackmail - S20-E12

Continuity mistake: Bernard puts down his sandwich in the house of the woman being blackmailed, after she tells him "no more sandwiches for you". Ten seconds later it's back in his hand, and put down again.
