Sex and the City

Ring a ding ding - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: When Charlotte is putting her diamond ring on in her apartment, there is a close-up shot of it. It is a large, circular diamond on a simple golden band. This is not the same diamond engagement ring she has been wearing previously in the series. That ring had two parallel silver bands, and the diamond looked slightly different. (00:10:10)

I heart ny - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: At the end of this episode when Carrie is walking away from Mr. Big's apartment; she notices an Autumn leaf, and follows it with her eyes as it floats down to the ground. However, this leaf is actually digital and not real. Sarah Jessica Parker had to pretend to be staring at a leaf that wasn't there while filming; and if you watch her gaze carefully, it doesn't always follow the path of the leaf. She looks down too soon, before the leaf has a chance to float down that far. (00:29:40)

Ring a ding ding - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: When Samantha is surprised at Richard's apartment by his assistant, she quickly throws her towel around herself to cover up. But the towel rides up too far, and you can see that Kim Cattrall is wearing tan or nude colored underwear. Soon after that, Samantha makes a comment to the assistant that implies she was nude under the towel. So the panties were probably for the benefit of the actress, to protect her modesty below the waist. (00:21:40)

The agony and the 'ex'tasy - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: When Charlotte arrives at Carrie's apartment to pick her up, Carrie is in the shower. As Charlotte walks towards the bathroom, there is a clear shot of Carrie showering. Sarah Jessica Parker appears to be wearing some sort of minimal tan colored undergarments, to protect her modesty while filming. (00:24:20)

A vogue idea - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When the episode starts and credits are still rolling, there are obvious groups of bystanders watching the filming and staring straight at the camera.

Change of a dress - S4-E15

I heart ny - S4-E18

Revealing mistake: Just after Big has left NY for good, Carrie leaves his apartment and is walking down the street. A leaf (that another mistake pointed out was digital as it was falling to the ground) is lying on the sidewalk. Carrie picks it up, but it is obviously an artificial one made from plastic and fabric.

Ghost town - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: When Samantha and Maria are in the bath tub arguing; Samantha decides to leave, and suddenly gets up out of the water. She is not wearing anything from the waist up; but if you look closely just at the end of the scene, you can briefly see that Kim Cattrall is actually wearing some sort of minimal dark undergarment below her waist to cover herself. You can see a black strip of material across her hips. (00:11:20)

Suggested correction: I've watched the scene and even paused it and see no black strip. In any case, if slo-mo were needed, the mistake would not be valid.

Games people play - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie is sitting at the table writing on her laptop after her trip with the girls to the sports bar, the camera comes round and you can see her TV. You can see a boom mic reflecting on the TV screen, and another camera.
