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

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Frank are driving in the car with Liam, the Crawford Power Plant can be seen just behind the car.

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?
