Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy opened the trunk for the first time, the corpse of the real Ampata is lying with its head to the right of the trunk. When she opens it the second time, the corpse is lying with its head on the other side.


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.


I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is waiting in Principal Snyder's office, the 1955 year book slides off the bookshelf and lands open, but when Buffy walks over to pick it up, the book is closed.


Becoming (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joyce is being interviewed by the policemen at the house, you can see the number outside the house, but it says 163 instead of 1630, the number on which Buffy lives.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Spike was in Buffy's kitchen with Joyce, Buffy keeps him down on the table and grips Spike by the throat. She uses her left hand (in the close shot it is also the left hand) but in the next scene when Angel is also in the kitchen and Spike hits Buffy's hand, she uses her right hand (Spike hits her right hand).

Touched - S7-E20

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Empty Places, Kennedy had a cut across her nose and two more between her eyebrows in the last scene. In the first scene of this episode, which takes place a few minutes later, the cuts are completely gone.

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

Continuity mistake: In Innocence, when the Scoobies are in the library, Oz (I think) says for the crew to meet outside Xander's house a half hour later. Then we cut to Buffy strolling through Sunnydale High in broad daylight, then back to Oz's van outside the military base and it's last night again. (00:23:15 - 00:29:20)

Enemies - S3-E17

Audio problem: While Faith is stabbing the demon in his apartment, we hear the sound of her knife going through, and him yelling in pain. However, the last sound of her stabbing him comes a little late: The knife isn't even touching him.

Pangs - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Xander falls through the ground, he lands with his arm on, or very near a bit of wood, but in a closer shot of him just before he gets up, the wood's disappeared and other rubble has moved around too.

Smashed - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When the Trio are conferring about helping Spike, from the front Warren's arm is on Jonathan's shoulder, but from behind both his arms are at his sides. (00:23:00)

Checkpoint - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: In the series 5 episode 'checkpoint' when Buffy has just accidently axed the dummy, watch her blindfold. It goes from being pushed up above her forehead on her hair, to being right down by her eyes. This changes between every shot. (00:27:55)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When the Anointed One is killed by Spike, he disintegrates into dust. But in the overhead shot, there is no dust on the floor, even though it should have fallen through the bottom bars of the cage.

Living Conditions - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Buffy and Kathy are deliberately infuriating each other (tapping pencils and cracking eggs) there are several lights on throughout the room (on Buffy's desk, above Kathy's computer, in the kitchenette) yet when Buffy turns out her bedside lamp, the entire area is thrown into darkness.

Real Me - S5-E2

Audio problem: When Joyce is about to leave for the pre-show, we hear Xander say "Have fun, but not too much fun", but his lips never move.

Helpless - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: In the library, a book in front of Buffy begins to slide off of a stack of books. Change of camera and book is back on top of stack.

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: In 'Tabula Rasa' when the loan shark's henchmen throw a stake at Spike at the start it flies over his head and hits a tree. But, if you compare the angle they approach from with the relative positions of Spike and the tree you can see it would have had to do a 90 degree turn in mid air to fly over his head before hitting the tree. (00:01:00)


Never Leave Me - S7-E9

Audio problem: When Buffy is about to close the door as she goes into the bathroom, it actually never closes. But we still hear the sound of the door closing. (00:15:20)

Showtime - S7-E11

Audio problem: When Giles and Anya are talking to the demon, trying to get him to open the portal to Beljoxa's Eye, when you see Anya's face from the side, her lips don't sync up with what she is saying, and sometimes her lips are moving to words when she doesn't have any lines at all.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Audio problem: When Giles and Miss Calender are walking through the halls at the beginning of the episode there's a kid at the vending machine, we hear the coins rattling but he never puts money into the slot. In fact, the money doesn't go anywhere near the slot.
