Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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)

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Anne' when the latest people to be brought into hell are lined up with a demon talking to them, there are 3 or 4 people standing between Buffy and Lily. When the demon asks them all in turn 'Who are you?' we see him asking Lily and after that the shot rests on Buffy, but in the background we only hear him ask one more person before he gets to Buffy. (00:35:50)

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Buffy has just finished fighting the demons, she begins climbing up chains and if you look at her shoes, they continue to change until she reaches the ground above the chains and runs off. (00:40:30)

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In episode 'Anne', when fighting the hell dimension demons Buffy's shoes change from trainers to plain pumps in different shots.

Anne - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Buffy fights the guards and says, "Anyone who isn't having any fun here follow me," the top under her jacket is purple. In the next shot, when she turns to walk out, it is green, then back to purple when we see her again.

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Buffy decides to leave again and goes to her room to pack, her door is three quarters shut when she goes in, half open when Willow comes in and almost fully open when Joyce comes in. At no point does anybody touch this door.

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Pat puts on the demon mask and punches Buffy into the bedroom door, she hits the door with her back and then falls to the floor on her face. In the immediate shot she hits the floor again, but this time on her back.

Dead Man's Party - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Joyce throws the bag with the stray cat into it into the hole, the bag lands with the knot at the top right, and shows no signs of moving. They chat for a few seconds about something to say, then when Buffy starts filling in the hole (with no sound of a moving bag), the bag's now lying with the knot on the left.

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.

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is in the counsellor's office she is wearing a yellow kind of gauzey cardigan which alternates between being completely buttoned up to unbuttoned between shots.

Homecoming - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In numerous episodes, including 'Homecoming', we see vampires being killed when they weren't stabbed through the heart (the Texan girl vampire in this episode is stabbed practically in the stomach). But the show also makes an issue of the fact you have to stab a vampire directly in the heart to kill it (think the flashback in 'the Becoming, Part 2' where Buffy misses the vampire's heart, or 'Pangs' where Spike gets staked several times).

Band Candy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The tattoo on Giles' arm is reversed compared to the way it was facing in the "Dark Age" in season 2.

Revelations - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the female watcher is being destroyed after Buffy cuts off her arm. Her sleeve is empty, which is not possible, as Buffy could not have removed the arm but not the sleeve. Also the arm on the floor is removed at the elbow, but the watcher has lost the entire arm in a previous shot.

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode Lover's Walk, when Spike is threatening Willow at the factory, in the long shots Willow's hair is up over her face, and in the close-ups it isn't. The pointed bit of the bottle is at the top or bottom in different shots too. (00:19:20)

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)

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Spike was in Buffy's kitchen with Joyce, Buffy keeps him down on the table and grips Spike by the throat. She uses her left hand (in the close shot it is also the left hand) but in the next scene when Angel is also in the kitchen and Spike hits Buffy's hand, she uses her right hand (Spike hits her right hand).

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In 'The Wish', when Cordelia is cutting up the photo of Xander at the start she chops his head off high up on the neck. When she sets fire to the remains it shows a piece of the photo burning, and the cut is around shoulder level. (00:02:45)

Shay

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the start of 'The Wish', the scene where Cordelia is talking to the Cordettes and meets Anya. During the close-ups of Harmony, Anya is standing to camera right of the brunette Cordette behind her. A few seconds later when the shot is further away Anya is standing camera left of the Cordette. (00:05:40)

Shay

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In 'The Wish' when Xander has killed Cordelia and throws her corpse down she falls at a definite angle, which makes it look like she should have landed on her side. When Giles breaks out of the cage, however, she's lying flat on her back. (00:25:15)

Shay

The Wish - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is walking forwards through Angel's dust in 'The Wish' there's a vampire running towards her, only a few steps behind. Then there's a shot of her walking forwards taken from another angle, then when we can see behind her again the same vampire hasn't moved forwards at all, he's still running from 3 steps behind her. (00:41:25)
