Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: In the teaser of "Beauty And The Beasts", when Jeff is running through the woods, you can see in the top left corner of several shots a lamp being used to light the scene.

Shay

Storyteller - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Anya have had their "one more time" and are lying in the cellar bed talking, the shot is on Xander and he is speaking. When he finishes speaking Anya starts, but the camera stays focussed on him, however, you can see part of Anya's face in the shot and her mouth is not moving despite the fact she is talking.

School Hard - S2-E3

Plot hole: Willow and Cordy disappear during a vampire attack. We later see that they spent the entire night hiding out in a closet, but wouldn't Buffy have gone looking for them once the vampires were gone? She knew they had run off somewhere (she mentions it to Giles when she gets a stake from the library). Instead she just goes home, leaving them still missing as far as anyone knows. (00:41:25)

Surprise (1) - S2-E13

Character mistake: In this episode, Buffy says that Drusilla could be alive because they 'never saw her body'. Drusilla is a vampire; if she was dead, there wouldn't be a body to see - as the slayer, Buffy knows this.

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the show, Buffy has two necklaces on, one long and one short. However, when Buffy, as Joan, is telling everyone her plan to get away from the vampires, she only has the short necklace on. Then when she is outside, running from Spike, as Randy, both necklaces are back on.

Fool For Love - S5-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Spike picks up the money after Buffy has just said "you're beneath me", you can see the microphone "sender" under his leather jacket. (00:36:10)

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Xander punches out the evil clown if you freeze-frame you can see the punch missed the clown by quite a distance, I noticed it without freezing it but it's better to see if you do. (00:35:35)

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the school near the end, one of the dead guys looks through the round window into the library and says 'wow'. In the long shot from within the library, his face isn't in the window. Back to the shot of the window, he's still there.

Doppelgangland - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Whenever we see the two Willows together in this episode we see that Vampire Willow is understandably very pale in comparison to the living Willow. However, in the library with Cordelia, when Vampire Willow says 'How about dinner?' her face is no longer pale.

Gone - S6-E11

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is at the desk of the social assistant you can see the white wire at the left of the keyboard. The white wire controls the fake keyboard: you can see the wire moving. (00:20:50)

Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Willow is outside the jail just before she starts pulling bricks out, there are two policemen walking past the open door, but a split-second later as the shot moves out to look up at the window, they disappear.

Spiral - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when Buffy runs out of the shack, after Glory and Dawn, for a brief second you see Spike's head, but a scene later you see Spike and the others run out of the building.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Buffy wakes up in the hospital bed you can you can see the black strap of her tank top underneath the gown. Then when she gets out of bed on walk to Faith, and it shows her walking through the hall you can see a white spaghetti top through the gown.

Wrecked - S6-E10

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Dawn says "I like the trailers", we fade to black/commercials, then up again. Keep a close eye on the left side of the screen - you can see what looks like someone's hand flash into frame for a second, despite Dawn being alone in the room - looks like the director's hand signalling action. (00:25:50)

Wrecked - S6-E10

Revealing mistake: After the demon throws Buffy into a wall, she crashes to the ground. As she backs away, you can see the blue crash mat she landed on in the bottom left of the screen. (00:33:55)

The I In Team - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: In every other episode it's seen in, room 314 is a room directly off a corridor, but in "The I In Team" Walsh walks through the door off the corridor, then there's another shot of her walking through a door. Where did the second door come from? (00:13:50)

No Place Like Home - S5-E5

Audio problem: When Joyce comes downstairs and comments on the breakfast Buffy made, Dawn says 'Oh, Buffy helped,' but her mouth doesn't match what she's saying.

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: After Buffy is supposed to meet Willow and she is walking home you can see she is wearing light blue wedge heels but when she is down in the basement she is wearing completely different purple heels.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: During the final song, everyone, including Spike, sings "When Does the End Appear?", however, one shot later, Spike is seen starting to sing the word "appear" again and then he stops.

Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When Spike is looking out the window at the demons rampaging in the street outside Buffy's house, Dawn can be standing behind him with her hair trailing down below her breasts. In the next shot, when Spike pulls her away from the window, her hair is pulled back behind her shoulders despite her not having moved. (00:53:10)
