Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Smashed - S6-E9

Audio problem: When Warren, Jonathan and Andrew break into the museum to get the diamond, Warren makes a hole in the glass, then pushes it through, but when it lands, it sounds like plastic, not glass.

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley, he mentions that the murder took place "last night". In "Bad Girls", we see Buffy visiting Faith the day after the murder, and that night is presumably when she has the dream about drowning, so by the time the detective is asking this question it is actually two nights after the murder, not one.

I Only Have Eyes For You - S2-E19

Visible crew/equipment: When Xander opens his locker and the gross hand grabs him, if you use slow-mo when the shot is inside the locker looking out, you can see the white t-shirt of the man whose arm it is. (00:10:20)

Phases - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Giles is driving Buffy to the Bronze if you look closely you can see people's heads pushing the car because it had broken down. (00:17:10)

School Hard - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Buffy and Willow are studying at the Bronze, the position of Buffy's pencil changes between shots after they leave their table to go dance. Nobody else goes to their table between these shots.

I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Other mistake: Willow's computer beeps twice when her first email from Malcolm is received through before she is kidnapped by Fritz, but only beeps once when the second email is received.

Lies My Parents Told Me - S7-E17

Revealing mistake: When Spike tells his mother that he's become a vampire, she asks him if he's drunk. He responds with "Little bit." Just after he says this, someone can be heard coughing off-camera. It could be his mother because she isn't supposed to be well, but it seems odd that the camera wouldn't be on her during this. And a cough wouldn't really be necessary for the scene.

Something Blue - S4-E9

Plot hole: Before the opening credits where Buffy stakes the vampire in the cemetery, she stakes him below the left shoulder, above the heart. Yet he still turns to dust and dies.

THGhost

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Lily's boyfriend is taken into an alternate dimension, where time moves quicker than ours, and is kept there until he is an old man. But when Buffy finds him, she realizes who he is because of his tattoo - which has not faded or aged in any way. (00:23:20 - 00:34:30)

No Place Like Home - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode Buffy is thrown against a 'No Trespassing' sign and the sign is all crinkled, the vampire also punches it but later in the episode we see the same sign except that it looks brand new.

After Life - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Dawn and Buffy were talking in Willow and Tara's room, Dawn's necklace went from being above her top, to underneath her top.

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Plot hole: When Giles calls Buffy's house, Joyce is in the kitchen, where in other episodes we see there is a telephone. Yet she doesn't answer it.

School Hard - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Spike is talking to the Anointed One for the first time, one of the henchmen tries to rush him from behind and Spike backhands him without even looking, but Spike's hand movements, the reaction of the henchman and the sound of the punch connecting on the audio track are all out of sync.

Shay

Family - S5-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the demons are attacking, one of the demons throws Buffy across a table. If you look carefully, you'll see the black mat which softens the stunt double's fall on the floor when she hits the ground.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Wesley and Cordelia kiss, after a few seconds they freeze in place. Cordelia has her left arm around his waist, we see a shot of her face for about a second with her arm definitely angled downwards, then we cut to Wes' face and her hand's now on his neck. (00:25:20)

The Wish - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Cordelia says "let's go to the Bronze", check the top of the screen - a microphone drops into shot for Harmony's line "is that a joke?" (00:16:20)

Flooded - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: As the Trio are discussing their plans near the end of the episode, Jonathan's arms are crossed in closeups and in other positions in wide shots. (00:36:35)

Phoenix

After Life - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: Watch Spike's hand when he punches the wall. The punch lands with his middle knuckle in the wall, but when he looks at his hand it is mostly the largest knuckle that is bleeding. (00:24:55)

Phoenix

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Buffy complains to Willow and Xander that she will have to blow her allowance on getting the tattoo removed before her Mom sees it. Moments later when Buffy is talking to Giles, the tattoo is gone. (00:40:45 - 00:42:30)

Pangs - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene of the siege at Giles', there is a shot where an Indian guy jumps through the window and helps himself by holding on to the sill. If you look to the left side of the screen, you can see it's a moving wall and that several hands of crew members are holding it so it doesn't shake.
