Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Touched - S7-E20

Continuity mistake: This episode takes up exactly where the previous one (Empty Places) left off. Anya now has curly hair, but she had straight hair at the end of Empty Places.

Angel - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Buffy leaves the Bronze (right before the Three attack her) to go home, she passes a strange-looking green-lit window. After the attack, she and Angel run past this window again, even though they're heading in the same direction Buffy was going anyway.

Sleeper - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Anya is sneaking into Spikes room after she closes the door the shot goes to spike and the sheet is lying square across his stomach and the camera goes back to Anya she then walks over to the chest of drawers and we see spike in the shot and the sheet is now lying at an angle so we can see his hip.

First Date - S7-E14

Audio problem: In the graveyard scene when Cho-Anne says the Cantonese translation of 'I don't understand what any of you are saying', watch her closely in the shot just before it. She starts to mouth part of the line early, but we don't hear it.

2

Pangs - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Willow are talking about the sham of Thanksgiving Day at the groundbreaking ceremony, on one angle (the one where Buffy's face is shown) there is a strong wind blowing, moving their hair about, but in the other (when you can see Willow's face) their hair aren't moving.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Audio problem: When Tara sings to Willow and sings "nothing i can do", her lips don't move.

Revelations - S3-E7

Visible crew/equipment: In the Buffy/Faith fight right around when Buffy says "We can work this out..." You can see what appears to be a boom mike bob in and out of the frame in top left. (00:36:15)

Gone - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In 'Gone', when invisible Buffy is typing on the social worker's keyboard the letter 'B' is pressed several times. When she prints what she's been typing seconds later it's revealed to be "All work and no play make Doris a dull girl", a phrase which contains no 'B's. (00:21:10)

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Graduation Day, Part 1' when Buffy and Faith are fighting Faith falls into a table, knocking all the comics on it onto the floor. In one or two later shots you can see (on the very edge of the screen) that there's still a comic on it. (00:38:20)

Becoming (1) - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: In 'Becoming, part 1' as Buffy kneels over Kendra's corpse you can see the door over her shoulder, it stays closed all the time. There is a cut to a shot of Buffy from behind showing a cop raising his gun, but he couldn't have come through the door without us seeing him in the last shot. (00:43:10)

Gone - S6-E11

Plot hole: Nobody notices a strange girl (Willow) with a invisibility ray-gun floating next to her talking to four invisible voices in a public arcade and only start to react when a fight breaks out.

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode, when Giles is looking for information about Spike, he finds that Spike is barely 200. But, in season four episode seven we find out that Spike is actually 126. Which would make him 124 in "School Hard."

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera pans to Willow on top of the crypt, on the right side of the screen you can see part of the camera.

Shadow - S5-E8

Spiral - S5-E20

Visible crew/equipment: When the knights start advancing in the bottom right corner of the screen you can see a crew member wearing a red plaid shirt just standing there.

Choices - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In "Choices", Faith threatens Willow with her knife. The mayor says 'girls', change of shot and the knife goes from being across Willow's face and by her ear to under her chin.

Who Are You? (2) - S4-E16

Audio problem: Near the end of the episode when Giles, Tara, Faith/Buffy and Willow arrive at the church and a police officer tries to stop them going inside Willow says, 'Oh no you don't understand (or words to that effect) but her mouth doesn't move at all, it was clearly dubbed.

Bad Eggs - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the episode, Lyle's reflection can be seen in the tiles on the floor in the shopping mall.

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: "So goes the nation" seems to have been used on many occasions, with various different US states in the "As .... goes" section. Most commonly it seems to be California that's considered to lead the way, but probably most other states have appeared in the lead role at some point or another. Other things have also been used - no less a person that Pope John Paul II said "As the family goes, so goes the nation...". The origin of the quote format is unclear - in US politics it goes back into the 19th century, when it was Maine that held the title spot, but, while no definitive origin is known, it seems highly likely that it goes back considerably further than that.
