Beer Bad - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Xander is showing Willow and Buffy his fake ID and the view of the shot is from behind Xander, he is holding the card with his thumb and middle finger. Switch to the view from behind Willow and it's being held with his thumb and index finger. Then it switches to behind Xander again and it's back to thumb and middle finger.

Wild At Heart - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When we see Veruca eating at the table, she reaches for a cup as we see Oz coming up behind her. The shot changes and we see her turning around and reaching for the same cup again, though she never had time to put it down.

Showtime - S7-E11

Audio problem: When Giles and Anya are talking to the demon, trying to get him to open the portal to Beljoxa's Eye, when you see Anya's face from the side, her lips don't sync up with what she is saying, and sometimes her lips are moving to words when she doesn't have any lines at all.

Lessons - S7-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander is in the bathroom after Buffy called him to look for the talisman, he bends down and grabs the talisman that lays under the sinks. As he stands the camera pans up to the mirrors and on the left side you can see the reflection of a crew member crouching over the hole to the old school. It's not the female manifest spirit as the clothes are wrong and she then appears from a different part of the room.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Audio problem: When everyone is in the Bronze - just before the vamps show up - you hear the first line of a song being played, Ballad For Dead Friends by Dashboard Prophets, cut to outside and you see the vamps strolling along and killing the doorman, then cut back into the Bronze and the same line plays again. This is a total error in cutting the show, it is stated there is no live band but still the same line plays twice when that is not how the song goes.

Gingerbread - S3-E11

Factual error: When Giles and Cordelia are driving to save the girls from getting burned at the stake and are making the potion to make the demon show his true face Giles tells Cordelia to shred the Wolfsbane. This is a huge mistake as any Witch will know (my sister pointed this out to me) that Wolfsbane is highly poisonous and should never be touched with bare hands and Cordelia didn't have gloves or anything.

As You Were - S6-E15

Audio problem: When Buffy has just killed the Suvolte demon and Riley is found out to have not told her it was a tracking only mission Sam says something like 'If we weren't under time constraints, I'd rip you a new one.' Riley then says 'Stand down soldier.' Buffy asks Sam, 'Is he your boss?' And Sam replies 'He wishes. We better regroup.' But her lips to not move when she says they have to regroup. You can see her mouth on screen and she is just smiling, not moving her lips at all.

As You Were - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Buffy receives her letter from UC Sunnydale it says her address is 1630 Crestview, this doesn't sync up continuity-wise with the episode The Body as she tells the 911 operator that her address is 1630 Revello. She didn't move so it's a definite mistake.

Chosen answer: We see the night Drusilla was turned in the Angel episode "Dear Boy" where Angelus has killed the entire convent and driven Drusilla insane. We don't see the exact moment of her turning, but it's implied that he does it right after that.

Chosen answer: In the episode Phases, Oz-Wolf was played by Keith Campbell, a stuntman who regularly doubles for Tom Cruise. I don't know about other episodes, but it seems unlikely that they'd choose not to use Seth Green in one episode, then change to using him to play the Oz-Wolf later on.

Chosen answer: Joss Whedon wanted something in there that was totally inexplicable. The Cheese Guy fit the bill rather nicely.

Chosen answer: From the Watcher's Guide Vol. 2. GILES: "-the house where we're all sleeping. All your friends are there having a wonderful time and getting on with their lives. The creature can't hurt you there." XANDER: "What? Go where? I don't understand." GILES: "Oh, for God's sake, this is no time for your idiotic games." ANYA: "Xander! You have to come with us now! Everybody's waiting for you!" XANDER: "Honey, I don't - I can't hear you..." ANYA: "It's not important. I'll take you there."

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: A Dictionary definition of the phrase "Tabula Rasa" is: Latin, smoothed or erased tablet. 1) the mind in its hypothetical primary blank or empty state before receiving outside impressions. 2) something existing in its original pristine state. Fitting, don't you think?

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Xander punches out the evil clown if you freeze-frame you can see the punch missed the clown by quite a distance, I noticed it without freezing it but it's better to see if you do. (00:35:35)

Season 7 generally

Trivia: Anyone who has read some of the BtVS books will notice that the background plot for season 7 (killing all the Potential Slayers and then the actual Slayers to end the line and let evil rule) is the plot of the book Pretty Maids All In A Row - Spike and Dru are trying to do just that.

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy finds Dr. Gregory's glasses on the lab floor she places them on the table, from the long shot she places them at the left end of the table near a plastic tub with a white lid, with the glasses open. Then it cuts to a close up where they are in front of a book on the right side of the table and are closed. Then cut back to the long shot and they are in the original place. (00:10:25)
