Buffy The Vampire Slayer

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

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

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)

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.

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.

Seeing Red - S6-E19

Other mistake: At the Bronze, when Warren punches Xander the first time, Warren never actually punches him, and Xander starts to go up in the air before you even hear the sound of the punch.

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: Timothy is wearing disposable gloves as he is training Buffy at the grill, but in the shot when he puts the raw patties on the grill, he is barehanded. (00:16:15)

Phoenix

Villains - S6-E20

Visible crew/equipment: Season 6, Episode 'Villains,' when Willow is chasing Warren through the forest, trees move out of her way to let her pass. When the trees behind her move back into place, in one shot you can see the rope they used to tug one of the trees down.

After Life - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: When Dawn is possessed and breathing fire the camera changes and we can see the safety tube the fire is coming out of. (00:23:55)

Smashed - S6-E9

Other mistake: The newspaper that Xander is reading in the library has the same text over and over again and does not at all match the headlines. (00:18:05)

Villains - S6-E20

Revealing mistake: As Willow walks through the forest pursuing Warren, just after we first see Warren running, there's a shot of Willow walking into a bit of a clearing. Her shadow crosses a tree on the right (could be caused by the moon), but then a couple of seconds later another shadow is visible on a tree to the left - obviously an artificially lit forest. (00:33:15)

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When Anya is standing on the table, wide shots show her holding the spellbook in front of her, but closeups show her holding it tight to her chest. (00:30:30)

Phoenix

All The Way - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: In one fight scene, Buffy uses a car door to block a kick from a vampire. The window of the car breaks before the kick connects with it. In fact, it breaks while the foot is still in mid-air. (00:37:00)

Twotall

Two To Go (1) - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: Where Willow is pulling the bricks out of the jail near the beginning of the episode. When she first pulls the bricks out of the arch thing they are from a different area than when you see the arch from the inside of the jail, even allowing it to be 'inside out' (as seen from outside and then the inside).

Dead Things - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: In the episode (series six) where Buffy thinks she killed Warren's ex-girlfriend, when she's at the police station, in the over the shoulder shot of Desk Sergeant, he is holding the phone between his shoulder and ear. But in the front shot of him the phone has jumped to his hand. (00:36:45)

Doublemeat Palace - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy's friends come visit her at work, WIllow is playing with some straws in a styrofoam cup next to the register which disappears a few shots later.

Bargaining (1) - S6-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After Giles' heavy machinery joke, the shadow of a boom mic is visible on a gravestone behind Tara on the far left of the screen.

THGhost

Gone - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In the kitchen scene Buffy takes the pizza out of the fridge and closes the door, but in the next shot the door is open and two shots later it's closed again.

School Hard - S2-E3

Vampire: And when I kill her, it will be the greatest event since the crucifixion. And I should know, I was there.
Spike: You were there?! If every vampire who said he was actually at the crucifixion really was there, it would've been like Woodstock!

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.
