Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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)

Bring On The Night - S7-E10

Plot hole: When the First has the Toruk-Han torturing Spike it hold his head under water. Hardly torture seeing as Spike is a vampire and doesn't breathe.

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.

Inca Mummy Girl - S2-E4

Plot hole: When Ampata is first released from her imprisonment, why didn't she break the seal then? She knew the only way to re-mummify her was to put the seal back together, so why not shatter it completely instead of leaving it in large fragments? (00:08:40)

Shay

Dirty Girls - S7-E18

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene, where Caleb picks up the potential slayer in his truck, there is a brief shot of the two from the hood that pans slightly to the right. In doing so it reveals the edge of a screen showing a fence and trees passing by, revealing that the car is in fact stationary and in a studio. (00:02:40)

Dead Things - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: As Warren is prowling the bar, the tie camera shows a redhead walking past and then a man in a white shirt sitting at the end of the bar in the background. A moment later Warren sees Katrina sitting there. (00:08:20)

Phoenix

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Absalom is speaking of the Anointed one, the line can be seen where the vampire makeup meets up with his real face. This may be seen in various scenes he is in.

Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - S1-E11

Audio problem: When Cordelia is tied to the chair at the end of the episode from a side view you can see her mouth 'Marcie' but can't hear it and in the front shot she says 'Marcie' again.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When the Judge is blown up, Drusilla and Angel leap from the balcony. In mid-air, they somersault and their backs are facing the ground as they fall, but a second later they land on their stomachs.

Lie To Me - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Buffy knew that Spike was the vampire Ford asked to come, but Ford never told her that, nor did anyone else.

Issabee

Graduation Day (1) - S3-E21

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Buffy is packing Joyce's clothes into a suitcase you can see a mic moving at the top of the shot as they walk through the door.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Once More, With Feeling', when Tara checks out Lethe's Bramble in the book at the Magic Box, she holds the sprig facing to the left in the close-ups, and facing to the right in the long shots. (00:32:30)

The Harsh Light Of Day - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is fighting Spike, she throws him against a table and then runs over it; you can see this is her body double. It is extremely obvious.

Out Of My Mind - S5-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Harmony sits down opposite the operating table, behind her in the glass there is a reflection of a boom mike.

Life Serial - S6-E5

Revealing mistake: The entire scene where Buffy is experiencing accelerated time, shadows of trees move in the wind but never actually grow or shrink. Even over short increments of time, the sun can move shadows noticeably, and judging from the speed of the people around her, Buffy is in accelerated time for at least half an hour. (00:08:25)

Phoenix

Villains - S6-E20

Revealing mistake: When Buffy is on the hospital bed, a few minutes before Willow arrives, as the doctors are working on Buffy, you can see her swallow.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Willow are stuck in the factory Xander wakes up you'll notice that the blood on his side burn closest to his ear constantly changes lengths from shot to shot. It goes from under the chin to slightly below where the blood on the other side of his side burn is. (00:30:30)

Pangs - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Anya is undressing a sick Xander in his basement, she lifts up his shirt and says 'Help me get your trousers off.' During the following conversation, in the close-up shots his shirt is lifted far up on his chest, but in the wider shots it's covering his whole stomach.

Hell's Bells - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Anya is confronting Dawn about Xander's disappearance and the demon boy leaves, he walks past Dawn and her attention is on Anya but in the next shot you see him walking away from behind and his sleeve is still in the shot as Dawn turns back to Anya.

Innocence (2) - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Drusilla's reflection can be seen in the metal part of what appears to be the base of a shopping mall map just as she's getting up after the Judge has been blown up.

Issabee

[After saving Giles from a vampire.]
Spike: Awww, poor Watcher. Did your life flash before your eyes? Cup of tea, cup of tea, almost-got-shagged, cup of tea?

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
