Batwoman

Who Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After the title screen, Sophie is reviewing Batwoman footage. First shot and two agents, one with a hat and one with blonde hair in a bun, walk behind her, right to left, met by another agent looking at something in her hands. Cut to the screen Sophie is looking at, and a few seconds later the same extras are doing their exact same walking routine starting from the exact spot. (00:01:25)

Continuity mistake: In Bruce's office, the museum curator turns around to ask her assistant "Margot, is that the last lens change?" She initiates that line holding the handbag with her right hand, but in the reverse shot she is using that hand to point at her, since the purse instantly went under an armpit. (00:04:10)

Who Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In the three-way meeting during the museum party, Sophie says "Sorry, I didn't realise you were here with anyone." A woman in a flower dress passes right behind her. Cut to Kate for awkward moments of silence, and back to Sophie, with the woman who did not make a millimeter of progress in her walk during that second. Even worse, seconds later when she says "You two have fun" the same woman is repeating the action from the beginning. (00:28:25)

Who Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Reagan and Kate have the break-up talk, Reagan catches her in a lie and says "You just said you were on a call." Behind her, a man with a conspicuous shirt (black with red drawings on it) walks off, and is in a following shot walking down the street, leaving for good. Right before she says "All I ask for is a little honesty", several seconds later, the funny shirted man is back behind her. (00:34:05)

Continuity mistake: When Reagan says "Sound like I have nothing to worry about" referring to Sophie, to the left of the frame a black couple meets a friend in a hug. In the next shot, they keep walking and Reagan says "I used to live there", passing by the same guy, not yet reached by the friend. (00:13:45)

Continuity mistake: Magpie is trying to steal a Faberge egg. We see her lowering herself from the ceiling, a POV shot that positions her right in front of it and she makes the grabby hand gesture thingy like in her first heist. Batwoman throws a batarang, severing her cable and she falls on the floor, vertically. Nowhere near the jewelry case that was supposedly in her reach. (00:09:50)

Continuity mistake: Somehow, Alice and a couple goons in conspicuous attire are just waiting by Catherine's car in the cemetery without her noticing. When she says "You know the thing I love about bad guys?" Elizabeth Anweis' hand is not in frame. Yet in the other shots you can see (use the jacket lapel as reference) that the hand, raised above the elbow level, should be visible. (00:06:20)

Who Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Kate grabs her phone bedside, reading Luke Fox's message (complete with apropos bat-emoji). She puts it away and says "Sorry" to her fling, immediately placing the phone hand down her back, with the right hand being on her shoulder instead. New angle, and the hands switched position (left on shoulder, right hand at the middle of the back). After a few seconds of terrible lying, Reagan says "That sounds...really serious..." and you can also see a lot of hair moved in front of her shoulder. When they begin snogging before she goes there is more switching hand position business between cuts too, with the left hand being behind and in front. (00:02:30)

Continuity mistake: Magpie tosses aside the cable severed by Batwoman's batarang. In two different overhead shots, the cable lies on the ground in two completely different ways. Even assuming during their fight they could have accidentally hit one end of it with the foot when it was not in frame, it still does not account for the massive difference. (00:10:00)

Who Are You? - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Kate is on her lunch date with Reagan. Panning shot of the Chicago aka Gotham street. There's a family with mom, dad and two kids, with a girl in purple that climbs up leaning on the railing, and her brother follows shortly. A closer angle follows ("Why the hell did you move back here", Reagan asks) and the two kids have yet to step to the railing, and do it in reverse order. Even more remarkable; at the very end of their long conversation, in the shot when Fox's message pops up, they are STILL by the same family despite the fact that they have been walking and passing several other people all along.

Continuity mistake: In bed with the barista at the beginning of the episode, Kate puts her hand on her back. She says "I heard she's doing Batman" and Ruby Rose's hand is on her bare skin; reverse angle and you have the hand on the sheet that suddenly covers her. Next shot and the hand is on her neck, with hair rearranged accordingly. (00:01:50)

The Rabbit Hole - S1-E2

Factual error: Alice and Kate's little reunion underwater is disrupted by policemen that fire at them, and one of the shots reaches the transport truck, ignites it and makes it explode. The scene is baffling; forgetting the complete disregard for fellow policemen in the vehicle, how would bullets have enough strength to penetrate into an armored truck deep underwater, reach a critical weak point from that angle (the truck is upright, they should be barely get to shoot the roof of it) and still underwater cause inside the completely immersed vehicle a spark that would ignite fuel and make the whole truck explode?

Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Two - S1-E9

Trivia: The version of Batman played by famous Bat-voice Kevin Conroy is a darker version of that from the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. The line "the world only makes sense when you force it to" is a version of a line from that comic (also used in Batman V Superman), also "Clark always said yes to anything with a badge or a flag." There are also elements from Batman Beyond, which first aired in 1999 (hence Earth-99), in which Conroy voiced an older Bruce Wayne mentoring a new Batman. The whole scene is full of nods to other versions - describing Kryptonite as "a little souvenir from the old hometown" is a Lex Luthor line from the original Superman movie, and him describing Superman as "strange visitor from another planet, with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men" comes from Superman serials from the 40s and 50s.
