Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Never Kill A Boy On The First Date - S1-E5

Other mistake: In the famous scene where Buffy tells Giles, "If the Apocalypse comes, beep me," she grabs her pager from out of shot. Trouble is, she's standing in the middle of her hall and there's nowhere she could have picked the gadget up from. (00:21:00)

Anne - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the episode 'Anne' Kenn tells Buffy that time in his hell dimension passes more quickly, that one day on Earth is the same as 100 years in his dimension. This means time goes roughly 36,000 times quicker. When Lily falls into the portal, it's at least 10 seconds until Buffy jumps in after her, but Lily is still just sitting there looking stunned. If times moves that much faster, 10 seconds would become over 4 days. Would Lily still have been just sitting there?

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Other mistake: When Sid gets into Buffy's bed and Buffy screams, her mum immediately comes into her room to find out what's wrong. Now, unless she sleeps on the landing, Buffy's mum is really quick at getting out of bed.

THGhost

Earshot - S3-E18

Other mistake: When Angel is in Buffy's room, feeding her the potion, the window is curtain-free, allowing the room to fill with sunshine which can be seen on Angel's back.

Older And Far Away - S6-E14

Other mistake: As Spike follows Buffy into the hallway by her front door we see Spike's reflection in the mirror. Vampires do not have reflections, so Spike should not have been visible.

Something Blue - S4-E9

Other mistake: Just after Giles becomes completely blind, Spike gets up to get a book off of the mantle. When he does this you can, very briefly, see James Marsters reflected in the glass doors of the bookcase that was behind him, despite Spike being a vampire. (00:27:00)

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Buffy pulls the knives out of the Bringers, there is no blood on them. Also, you can see the muscular arm of Buffy's stunt double pushing the knives into the Bringers. (00:34:00)

Some Assembly Required - S2-E2

Other mistake: In all episodes where the high school football team is mentioned, they are called the RAZORBACKS but in this episode the cheerleaders cheer for the GREENBACKS (it wouldn't even make sense if this was a nickname as SHS colours are yellow and burgandy).

Bewitched, Bothered And Bewildered - S2-E16

Other mistake: Joyce tells Cordelia to grab some bandages for Xander from the bathroom upstairs. Joyce and Xander are in the kitchen and there is a small corridor that leads to the stairs, but Cordelia goes around the other way leading to the living room. Fair enough, Cordelia made a mistake. She isn't that bright. But she returns with the bandages coming back from the living room. Why come downstairs and then go all the way around through the living room when she could have just walked down the small corridor?

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode when Giles visits the archaeologists who have obtained the obelisk, it appears to be much too tall/wide to have fit through the door.

THGhost

Showtime - S7-E11

Other mistake: When The First (disguised as Eve) tells the Turok-Han to kill everybody except Buffy, it runs past her towards the exit of the crypt. The First then says, "Well, alone again", turns to face Spike and transforms into Buffy. In this shot, the Turok-Han can be seen still leaving the crypt, even though it had plenty of time to reach the exit and was running towards it at full speed.

THGhost

Halloween - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Buffy and Willow find the picture of the noblewoman in the Watcher's Diaries, Buffy asks "Who is she?" and Willow replies "It doesn't say", but if you watch closely you can see that during the brief shot of the book her name is visible next to her picture.

Shay

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Other mistake: When Angel fights with Buffy in the forest you can see that he hasn't got shoes on, just socks. Later, when Buffy goes back to the mansion and Angel is chained up, he's wearing shoes. How did he manage to put them on, if he was in chains?

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Angel, Drusilla and The Judge enter the mall, The Judge kills a pedestrian as he tries to get away. But no other pedestrians that are in the mall notice - A big blue guy just set a man on fire and disintegrated him into tiny pieces in a public mall and NOBODY noticed?

THGhost

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Other mistake: We've seen before that vampires are fine as long as they aren't in direct sunlight, yet in this episode Spike is in the shade when Buffy removes the ring and he still starts fizzling.

Out Of My Mind - S5-E4

Other mistake: Towards the end of the episode when Spike tells Buffy to stake him and removes his shirt, you can see that he has a tan on his upper back/neck to his hairline from wearing a t-shirt.

School Hard - S2-E3

Other mistake: As Spike is walking down the hall, you can see a reflection of his head on a locker to his left.

Issabee

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Other mistake: In the final scene, where Spike drives down the road while singing 'My Way' he turns the steering wheel significantly, but in the external shots the car is travelling down a straight road, with no bends. He is turning it sharply to the right as the camera cuts to outside, but the car continues straight ahead.

Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Buffy is talking about Spike's trigger she says, "He's a bomb and I need to know how to defuse him." The DVD subtitles misspell "defuse" as "diffuse." (00:23:55)

Phoenix

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Other mistake: Robin uses the song that Spike's mother sang to him to provoke him into attacking him. The song is played on his computer through Apple's media program "iTunes". He clicks his computer's mouse to start the song, but when we see the monitor the cursor isn't placed on the Play button. Robin doesn't jostle the mouse when he presses it, it remains completely still on the desk. And the only way to play a song through iTunes using a single mouse-click is by clicking on the Play button.
