Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: While it is established that Angel doesn't age, it's obvious across both Buffy and Angel that David Boreanaz gets older. More unavoidable than deliberate, but still worth noting.

Show generally

Character mistake: Time and time again, Buffy or another of the Scoobies have gone a few metres away from a vampire and talked about them, shouldn't they be able to hear them? Because aren't they supposed to have heightened senses?

Other mistake: In episode "Helpless" in season 3, after the council member bitten by the crazy vampire rises, his bite marks heal. But in season 7's "Lies My Parents Told Me," it shows Spike's mother already risen and her bite marks are still there.

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Though vampires are said to possess super-human strength, and are in fact demonstrated to have it, they are often kept confined by the flimsiest of restraints. One distinct example is in season 2 episode 9 when Kendra locks up Angel he is unable to break out despite being held in by nothing but a flimsy padlock. This mistake is pointed out in the DVD commentary as an unavoidable 'mistake'.

Welcome To The Hellmouth (1) - S1-E1

Plot hole: There was no need for the master wait 60 years for the night of the Harvest, when all he had to do was have his minions kidnap and gather a bunch of humans and bring them down to where he is so he could feed on them himself and escape 60 years earlier.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Audio problem: When Buffy kills the vampires dragging Xander at the beginning, we hear two impact sounds but don't hear either of them turn to dust. They were only a few feet away and there was no other sound to cover it up. (00:01:00)

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Audio problem: When everyone is in the Bronze - just before the vamps show up - you hear the first line of a song being played, Ballad For Dead Friends by Dashboard Prophets, cut to outside and you see the vamps strolling along and killing the doorman, then cut back into the Bronze and the same line plays again. This is a total error in cutting the show, it is stated there is no live band but still the same line plays twice when that is not how the song goes.

Continuity mistake: At home Buffy helps her mother open a crate. She tears off the cover and leaves it hanging by the side. Next shot the lid is back on. Not nailed anymore of course, but there was no time to put it back on.

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy finds Dr. Gregory's glasses on the lab floor she places them on the table, from the long shot she places them at the left end of the table near a plastic tub with a white lid, with the glasses open. Then it cuts to a close up where they are in front of a book on the right side of the table and are closed. Then cut back to the long shot and they are in the original place. (00:10:25)
