Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Fiona is being harassed by Craig's wife, she's talking to Debbie about having a "birthday party." Debbie says her birthday is in October. In episode 4-8 when Debbie is looking at her losing virginity calendar, her birthday is marked as being in July. And fast forward to season 7 when Monica returns and gets Franny back. She says she hasn't been that happy since the summer Debbie was born, to which Debbie replies that her birthday is in December.

Parenthood - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: After Fiona's return back home from the club where she's worked as a waitress, the blackish strips on her cheeks turn from partially rubbed off (justified by her wiping the tears) to perfectly fine a moment later, then change several more times during her discussion with Lip. (00:38:35 - 00:39:35)


A Great Cause - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When Monica stops the car, as Frank is getting out, you can see two cameramen in the reflection of the window. Also, a train is passing by but during the shot where Frank gets angry and makes a mean face at the camera, cars are passing along as if there is no train at all. (00:14:30)

A Great Cause - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Frank are driving in the car with Liam, the Crawford Power Plant can be seen just behind the car. At this point, they have crossed the Stevenson Expressway and they are heading south down Pulaski. However, in the scene where they stop the car and argue, as Monica drives away, the Crawford Power Plant can be seen on the left, right ahead of them. (00:13:40 - 00:14:50)

DNR - S11-E10

Audio problem: When Frank is saying "You watch your mouth, fat guy!" to Wen, his mouth movement doesn't match the words "fat guy." It looks more like he says "You watch your mouth, asshole!" (00:32:38)

Paradise Lost - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Kev hands a beer with lots of foam at the top to a customer at the alibi, then the shot cuts to the beer having no foam, then back to the beer having foam again.

'Gallavich!' - S10-E12

Continuity mistake: When he is handcuffed, Mickey mentioned his dad dumping them on Family Services for a year. However, in the third season Lip said Mandy had "miraculously" never been in the system.

Slaughter - S11-E5

Continuity mistake: A call comes through the police dispatch radio of a kid stealing from a liquor store and the address of the store is broadcasted as "44100 Western Ave", but when Carl and the lady cop enter the liquor store from the outside, the address above the store reads "2420."

Citizen Carl - S10-E7

Visible crew/equipment: Carl is walking along the reporters trying to get their attention. At the bottom of the screen is the shadow of the camera filming the shot. It moves as the scene moves. At one point there is even a boom mic shadow on the right. While this may be a member of the news crew, it's likely the boom mic for the show as the reporter has a mic of her own and the shadow follows Carl.

Where's My Meth? - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: The tattoo of Monica on Iam's shoulder has bobs on the back left side of his shoulder. Later in the same episode it shows the tattoo on the right side of his shoulder. (00:35:00 - 00:42:00)

Lip Gallagher: I'm not my dad. You hear me? I'm not my fucking dad.

Drugs Actually - S5-E11

Question: The Army says Ian could serve 5 years in prison for going AWOL. Given that he fraudulently enlisted at the age of 17, could they actually charge him with going AWOL when he wasn't legally allowed to serve in the military in the first place?
