Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Living Conditions - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When the portal is opened Buffy crawls around to the other side of her bed yet just as the portal closes there is a wide shot and she isn't next to the bed.

Into The Woods - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is hitting the punching bag near the end of the episode and Riley comes in she has bandages wrapped around both her hands but in the close up shot there is only a bandage on her left hand.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Drusilla and the new reformed Angelus are in the shopping mall and they got blown over the side after Buffy fires the grenade launcher at the Judge, you can tell that it was Mike Mass and not David Boreanaz that got blown over the side.

Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Revealing mistake: In the opening of the season 6 episode "Two To Go", Willow has gone crazy and is trying to kill the two remaining members of the Trio, so she is pulling the brick wall of the jail apart brick by brick. The problem is that if you look carefully, they are obviously not bricks being pulled away; they look more like plastic or plaster.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: In the musical episode, 'Once More, With Feeling', when Buffy is singing her song in the Bronze, 'Something to Sing About', she breaks a pool cue over a demon's head. She holds the remains in her right hand and clubs another demon in the face with it, then the camera cuts to another angle and it's in her left hand when she stabs the next demon with it.

End Of Days - S7-E21

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode when the Potentials are fighting the ubervamps, when they see the second one they move away from it. You can see in the bottom right hand corner of the screen that the ubervamp already has a Potential. In the next shot you see it jump down and grab a Potential.

The Freshman - S4-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Xander are doing some research, check the left side of the screen in a wide shot, when Xander asks "how far back do the disappearances go?" You may need to turn the brightness up, but there's a boom mike bobbing around. (00:34:25)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Cordelia comes up to Buffy talking about how "even slaves get minimum wage", in pretty much every shot her arms switch from being at her sides to crossed in front of her, held behind her or on her hips.

Grave (2) - S6-E22

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander is leaning over the hole in the cemetery into which Buffy and Dawn have fallen, he causes the edge of the hole to collapse. Seen from below, everything is fine, but the shot from above Xander shows a hand grabbing hold of the back of his trousers and his briefs are visible.

Janet Carter

Amends - S3-E10

Revealing mistake: In the shot with Buffy and Angel on the hill when it first starts snowing, the snow appears much more dense in the middle of the shot, over the characters, than it does on either side, showing where they centred the machine they used.

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the basement scene, when Jack and Xander face off over the ticking bomb, the number of beeps is hugely disproportionate to the seconds ticking down.

Shay

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: New boss Lorraine unfolds her arms twice. (00:39:05)

Phoenix

Nightmares - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene where we see Buffy's mum drop her off at school, when Buffy is worrying that her dad will not show up, we firstly see Joyce's seatbelt is on. We then see her again and it is still on. However after the shot goes back from Buffy to herself, we can see her seatbelt is off. Then when the shot comes back to her again it is back on.

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.

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Giles is making calls in his apartment, he takes his glasses off and drops them on the desk, just above the notebook with his list of names. But in the close up of the notebook, the glasses are now on the top of the notebook.

Issabee

Earshot - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is trying to read Angel's mind, his chain goes from being inside to outside his vest between shots.

Shay

Doomed - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: In the season 4 episode "Doomed," during the fight at the Hellmouth, Willow throws the sack of bones to Spike, who catches them and looks startled. In the very next shot of Buffy fighting one of the demons, Spike can be seen in the upper left corner of the screen, with empty hands, quite calmly watching the fight. (00:36:35)

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

The Initiative - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: At the party where Riley is talking to Buffy by the stairs, when he first comes over there is no one in the corner on the stairs but in the next shot there are two people who disappear two shots later.

After Life - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Anya was possessed, she cut her right cheek, but in the next shot, her left cheek was cut and she was cutting her right cheek again.
