A Series of Unfortunate Events

The Bad Beginning: Part Two - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Olaf is standing at that secretary's desk, he reads the calendar and says his name is "haircut." The secretary and the top of her desk are shown several times and in most of the shots, the calendar is visible near the secretary's left arm. However, in at least one of those shots, the calendar vanishes.

The Reptile Room: Part Two - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When "Stefano" puts his ankle up on the table, in the brief closeup his sock is pulled up straight. In the wider shot it's noticeably rumpled.

The Reptile Room: Part Two - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Count Olaf enters the bedroom with a knife and says "Oh orphans! [Beat.] Our ship awaits." A few minutes later when we see the same event from another direction, there's no pause, and the delivery is noticeably different, more "oh orphans, our ship awaits."

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode when the Baudelaires are in bed, the camera goes outside and pans down the front of the house. Once it reaches the next set of windows below the Baudelaires' "bedroom", the camera wobbles slightly.

Continuity mistake: When the Baudelaires are on the rickety trolley with Justice Strauss, they pass the pebble that Violet drew an X on near the start of the episode. The shape and thickness of the X change each time the pebble is shown.
