Will & Grace

New Lease on Life - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Grace finally decides to move into Will's apartment near the end, we see Will eating a tub of ice cream. Between shots the ice cream tub lid jumps from being on the table behind Will, to suddenly sitting right in front of him. (00:42:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the poker scene at the beginning of the pilot we witness Will, Jack, Rob, and others playing cards. Shortly after Jack asks for "four cards please" watch the bottom left of the screen as a hand (presumably Will's) deals Jack a single card. In the next shot Will appears to have not dealt Jack any cards yet and when he does he gives Jack five cards, add that to the single card he gave in the previous shot and the Ace Jack kept from his original hand and we get a total of seven cards. Two more than Jack should have had if the hand was dealt correctly.

William, Tell - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Grace gets out all the videos which hint Will's 'secret', she puts the bag on the table, but in the next shot it's in her hand. Between these same shots a sticker also appears on one of the video cases. (00:29:50)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Following the argument between Will and Grace when she returns from City Hall, Karen tells Grace she "thinks it's time for a couple of blue bibbies." Watch closely as she removes the lid from the pill bottle, takes out some pills, and puts the lid back on. The scene shoots to Grace and we hear Karen shaking the closed bottle. When the scene shoots back to Karen we see that the pill bottle is open again and Karen closes it yet again.

Head Case - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Grace is showing Will her ideas for the bathroom, whenever she shows Will pages in her magazines, the pages they're on change between shots, and the magazines on the table differ from opened/closed. (00:47:05)

Secrets & Lays - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Will is cleaning the tray, and in all following shots, from when he leaves the room, to when Karen walks over to Grace, to tell her to go get Campbell, there is a wine bottle which keeps jumping from the edge of the blue sink counter, to the edge of the counter which has the cooking gas-hobs on it.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jack enters Will's apartment for the first time, with the idea of him moving in, the exterior outside of Will's apartment is completely different that for the rest of the whole show, and there's a wall right by his door. (00:04:25)

Boo! Humbug - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Will grabs the silly string from the table, he pulls off the yellow lid and drops it to the floor. In the next shot the lid is on the coffee table. It alternates from on the table/floor for a few following shots as well. (00:59:25)

Fanilow - S6-E10

Question: Will and the others are in line to buy Barry Manilow tickets when the box office opens at 6:00 a.m. the next morning (it is established that the episode takes place before midnight) and at one point Rudy states that the show is "tomorrow night." My question: is it common in New York for a fairly popular performer to sell tickets only on the day of the show? I live in Southern California and I can't think of a single time I've heard of a concert headliner selling tickets less than a month before the show.

JustJudy

Chosen answer: I'm not from New York so I can't speak for them, but in Chicago it has happened before. not very often though but I do recall it happening. I have also seen no tickets sold prior to the show at all, it was just first come first served the night of the show. That is very uncommon though.
