Dark Fire

Continuity mistake: In chapter 16, Shardlake takes the alchemy books out of his satchel along with the bottle and places them on the table. A few paragraphs later, he once again takes them out of his satchel and lays them on the table.

The Grove - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Mica and Lizzie are running from the walkers on the railroad tracks, they easily outrun them and gain several meters' distance in a few seconds. When they are running to the house, the walkers have suddenly caught up and are directly behind them.

Internment - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Rick and Carol are shown hunting through houses for household drugs to fight the flu. They even make a mention that most of what they find expired a year ago, but to bring it back to Hershel anyway, and let him decide about it. But in this episode, Rick returns, talks to Hershel, and no mention is made about him bringing medicine. Considering how important it was to fight the flu with any means possible, Rick would not have let Carol drive off with the potentially life-saving drugs.

Factual error: Every time the name of the Swedish princess is spoken, it is pronounced "till-dee." This is understandable for the majority of the characters, who speak English as their first language, but in the scene where the Swedish prime minister is interviewed about the disappearance, he also pronounces it "till-dee." He should have used the Swedish pronunciation, "till-deh."

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Deliberate mistake: When the judge shoots himself, the revolver slides across the table, to fake his murder by someone else. But there is no mechanism in place that explains how he does this, making it appear as if he is able to accurately throw/slide the gun after shooting himself. In the original novel, he used a rubber band to achieve the effect, but he is not shown setting it up here.

Episode #1.3 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Vera fires the gun 3 times, and later tells Justice Wargrave that the gun is empty, meaning that all the cartridges in it would be spent. Even if that were true, there should still be three spent cartridges in the gun. When the judge loads his one bullet into the chamber, he does so in a gun where all five cartridges are unspent.

Factual error: Just like in the previous movie, Herzog is referred to as "colonel", in particular in the WWII museum where Martin reads about his history. But both in the museum's picture of him, and throughout the movie, Herzog is wearing the uniform of a SS Standartenf├╝hrer. To hold a title of Oberst (colonel), he would have been a member of the Wehrmacht, regular army, not SS.

Revealing mistake: As Glenn, Blake and Monica are being surrounded by zombies, as Monica asks "Fucking hell, how many more of these are there?", in the background you can see a zombie sitting astride his victim, flailing away with a hammer or hatchet. It is obvious that he is just swinging his arm back and forth, without connecting with anything. It looks as if he is dusting, not slaying someone.

The Butler (2013)

Other mistake: When Cecil and Gloria are having their birthday celebration, before they are informed of Charlie's death, Cecil goes to the refrigerator to open a bottle of champagne. We hear the distinct pop of a cork from a bottle of sparkling wine, so we know he chose that bottle, but when he enters the living room a few seconds later, he is holding a glass of non-sparkling wine (no bubbles are visible).

47 Ronin (2013)

Plot hole: Every single one of the ronin are portrayed as being extremely lax with their most prized possession, their swords. When they first gather, one of the ronin tells Oishi "We do not have any swords", whereupon Oishi casually hand over his own. First of all, only the most poverty-stricken and desperate ronin sold their swords, as giving up one's sword was the ultimate humiliation for a samurai, it was a denial of both one's status and legacy. Secondly, selling your sword would mean never being able to be employed as samurai again, or even to be hired as a temporary bodyguard. Thirdly, swords were often inherited from one's father, or given as personal gifts by parents or lords, not something one would willingly give up. It is possible a few of the ronin would have been driven to selling or otherwise losing their swords, but not every single one of the 50+ ronin who gather. And those who still had them would be extremely loathe to even lend them to others.

Heroes (2006)

Fallout - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In previous episodes, when we see DL getting into the car as Nikki prepares to shoot him, he pauses for a second and looks around. In this episode, when we see the actual shooting, DL never looks around, he just opens the car door and prepares to get in, without pause.

Beowulf (2007)

Trivia: While working on the screenplay for this movie, Neil Gaiman constantly had people misunderstand him, and believe he was writing an episode of "Baywatch". After the script was finished, he actually did adapt "Beowulf" again, setting it in a quasi-futuristic Baywatch-setting. It made its way into his anthology "Smoke and Mirrors", under the title "Bay Wolf".

Dexter (2006)

Left Turn Ahead - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Doakes is carrying the packs of cocaine out of the cabin, the position of his arms and the cocaine varies wildly from shot to shot. Notable examples are that the cocaine goes from being arranged in neat, accurate stacks, to being haphazardly and irregularly stacked, and back to neat again. His grip on the cocaine also varies a lot; he starts out with straight arms, then suddenly has a 90-degree bend at the elbows, and back to straight again, all depending om camera angle. All of these changes happen too fast to have been natural, and Doakes is on camera the whole time.

Into the Vortex - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Bjornson is in Oslo he calls Catherine, who is still in Alesund, from a pay phone. But located behind him is a poster listing emergency numbers for the municipality of Giske, revealing that this scene was filmed there, just outside of Alesund.

Taken 2 (2012)

Continuity mistake: When Bryan and Kim are on the ferry in Istanbul, he is wearing a scarf. This scarf varies between being rumpled in some shots and smooth in others, depending on the camera angle.

Numb3rs (2005)

Checkmate - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Bell is in the car with the female assassin, she pulls out a gun and points it at him. The camera then goes to an outside shot, where you can see the car's side window is already splattered with blood, before we hear the shot and the window shatters.

The Thing (1982)

Continuity mistake: Each man only dribbles a few drops of blood into the petri dishes as their blood samples. But when the test is administered, there is a lot more blood in each dish, enough to cover the entire bottom.

The Thing (1982)

Factual error: When going to the Norwegian camp, MacReady finds several cans marked "kerosin", and thus can easily deduce that they contained kerosene. However, there is no such word in Norwegian. The cans would have been marked with the proper Norwegian word "parafin".

Suggested correction: "kerosin" is the German word for Kerosine. There's no reason to think all of the camps only used supplies from their own country of origin.

Priest (2011)

Continuity mistake: After pinning Priest to the train wall with the dagger, Black Hat throws a lit lantern directly in front of him, starting a small fire in addition to the one already raging through the train cart. The flames are so close they lick Priest's boots and clothes. But moments later, when Priest frees himself from the wall, the floor beneath him is bare, with no sign of the broken lantern or of the small fire.

Spree - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Crystal sets fire to the meth lab, she flings her lighter in a straight direction towards the front door. But you can see that the fire does not start there: it starts in the middle of the front porch, more than three feet from where her lighter landed.
