Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Season 7 generally

Continuity mistake: In many historical flashbacks, most notably Spike's and Anya's, hair and wigs differ greatly from previous flashbacks or episodes. The director even discusses it during the commentary on Lies My Parents Told Me, saying that he doesn't understand why the wigs aren't consistent.

Beneath You - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: Shortly after the opening credits we see Buffy, Dawn and Xander driving to the new high school. As they're talking, the rest of the credits roll by onscreen. Just after "Producer: Marc David Alpert" is shown, there is a side-angle shot of the car and you can see Xander's left arm resting outside on the open door window. But in the following shot he has both his hands on the steering wheel.

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: Spike tells Buffy about drugs the Initiative would give him when his chip started firing after he was first captured. This is wrong in two ways: firstly, we saw most of Spike's time in captivity, and he escaped before they could drug him, and secondly, he didn't even know he had a chip until he escaped and tried to kill Willow.
