Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: After the 'hell hogs' interrupt the ritual, Xander pulls Willow out of the way. He then tells Anya and Tara to "take off." which they appear to do, starting to run into the woods. But then in the next shot, they are back standing still in the clearing (on the left of the shot).

What's My Line? (2) - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When they ask about the demon that Xander and Cordelia encountered in Buffy's basement, Xander points to the bug that Cordelia threw from her hair onto the open book. He then slams it shut. A shot later, the book is gone.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy wakes up she is wearing metallic nail polish, yet when she went to sleep previously, she has no nail polish on. Later in a scene where Buffy is dreaming about her night with Angel she has the nail polish on again, even though that took place the night before when she did not have her nails painted. (00:01:15)

Touched - S7-E20

Revealing mistake: When Giles slashes the Bringer's neck in the basement, you can tell that there is no entry wound and that the fake blood was merely applied to the actor's neck to give the impression of it being slashed.


Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Audio problem: During Buffy's first song she does a spinning kick to a vampire's face as she sings, "I've been making shows of trading blows, just hoping no one knows." But as she spins, her lips are not moving.


Wrecked - S6-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When Willow and Dawn are running away from the demon, Willow uses magic to unlock a car for them to escape in. On the right side of the screen, shadows of crew members can be see as the car's doors open and are gone when Willow uses magic to make the car drive away.


Pangs - S4-E8

Revealing mistake: One of the arrows that Spike gets hit with passes through just below his left shoulder, but there are times when you can tell that it is a fake arrow because the part of the arrow sticking out at the front moves and the part at the back does not. Look at the arrow just after Buffy turns Hus into a bear.


Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Willow catches Xander and Cordelia kissing in the library, the hair next to Willow's right ear moves between shots as her and Xander are talking in the hallway.


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.


Storyteller - S7-E16

Visible crew/equipment: During Andrew's fantasy of him, Warren and Jonathan being Gods, something dark is reflected in of the piles of gold. Possibly a camera or camera crew.


The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: When Willow is out with Kennedy, Willow tells her that she doesn't get why she likes her. As she says "I still don't get it", she pulls her hair back over her left ear. Then when she says "Why you like me" in the following shot, her hair is hanging back down over her left ear again.


Sleeper - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Anya pretends to want to have sex with Spike again, she holds a stake up in her right hand. In the shots facing Anya she holds it at a horizontal angle. But in the shots behind her, she holds it at a diagonal angle.


Bargaining (2) - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy and Dawn are at the top of the metal tower, and Buffy is still very dazed from being called back, there is an overhead shot with a piece of the tower falling down; if you look left of the falling piece, you can see a guy wearing a hard hat walking about.


Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy kicks the front door of The Bronze down to confront Sweet and save Dawn, a cable can be seen attached to the door used to pull it down.


Where The Wild Things Are - S4-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander and Anya pull over in the ice-cream van, the front windscreen is very reflective. To avoid reflecting the camera crew, a giant screen was put in front of the ice-cream van - which, ironically, is reflected in the windscreen. It isn't a reflection of another vehicle parked in front of them as the thing that is reflected is a curved shape.


Beer Bad - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Cavemen knock out Willow, she lands flat on her front. Later on, one of the Cavemen watches Willow as she lies unconscious, and she is now lying on her back. Then when Buffy finds her when the building is burning down, she is back on her front.


Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy, Willow and Anya are watching Looney Tunes, some stage lights are reflected in the globe behind Willow.


The Pack - S1-E6

Audio problem: In the scene where Buffy and Giles are talking to the zookeeper about the hyena possessions, in the zookeeper's over-the-shoulder shots, you can see that the audio of what he says does not line up with the visual of him speaking. (00:33:05)

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Visible crew/equipment: When Buffy says, "Goodnight, bitch" to Warren, right before she kicks him it is quite obvious that it is his stunt double.

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy falls down after the Master bites her, you can see her fall, then hear her hit the dry ground. But then a few shots later she falls again and this time into water.
