Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Teacher's Pet - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After Buffy finds Dr. Gregory's glasses at the start of Miss French's class and places them on the table, they move position twice throughout the rest of the scene.

I Robot, You Jane - S1-E8

Plot hole: In "I Robot, You Jane", how exactly does Willow scan Moloch out of his book when the scan is only about two thirds the width of it? (00:04:25)

The Puppet Show - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Buffy breaks into the locker, the locker is already damaged. Probably from a previous take.

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Other mistake: The Master's skeleton, before it is destroyed, looks to be female and not male. (Note the wide hips and large birth canal-like hole.) Also in the Next season's "When She Was Bad," they have another shot of the same skeleton, however the hips are much smaller and more male. (00:43:55)

Nightmares - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Willow opens the door to the basement to look for Buffy, the shot looking up the basement's staircase shows Willow's shadow on the inside of the door. In the previous shot when she opened the door, it opens towards a wall and a staircase to the second floor. But there is no light source coming from the wall or the staircase, giving the impression that the basement was filmed on a separate set.

Welcome To The Hellmouth (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The scene where Xander is on his skateboard, he becomes distracted seeing Buffy walk up the stairs and accidentally hits the pole. When the camera pans back, you can see Buffy is out of view, and is nowhere to be seen. Because she was still at the top of the stairs when Xander hit the pole, you should have been able to see her walking in the background.

Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Cordelia is giving her May Queen speech, Willow notices 2 body guards standing around. In both shots you can see the same 2 girls, wearing light blue and grey, walk behind The Body guards. The same girl in light blue can also be seen in several different shots, in the crowd listening to Cordelia and walking around as Buffy talks to Willow and Xander.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: A cut scene shows the sun had just gone down right before Buffy heads to the Bronze and Joyce tells Buffy she will make them dinner if she chooses to come downstairs. This would assume it is evening. When Buffy kills Luke she says sunrise is in 9 hours. Considering this episode takes place in March, that would mean the sun would have gone down around 7pm. But 9 hours from sunrise would be around 10pm.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is shown pulling the secret chest out of her closet with weapons against the vampires, the window behind her shows daylight, but when she steps out of her window it is fully dark. There is also a cut scene right before that shows it was twilight, but there was late afternoon sunlight shining through the windows of her room. It's not possible for the sun to go down that fast.

Nightmares - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Buffy's history teacher is not the same person from episode 1 or 9, originally a woman, the teacher is now a man. Cordelia also notes Buffy doesn't know where the class is due to ditching, but we saw Buffy in her history class with Cordelia in The Puppet Show. How could Buffy not know where her class is only 1-2 weeks later?

Welcome To The Hellmouth (1) - S1-E1

Plot hole: There was no need for the master wait 60 years for the night of the Harvest, when all he had to do was have his minions kidnap and gather a bunch of humans and bring them down to where he is so he could feed on them himself and escape 60 years earlier.

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

[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?

Touched - S7-E20

Question: How come Buffy can move so fast when she's fighting Kaleb?

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
