Angel

Judgment - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Right after Cordelia has her vision, Wesley goes to the whiteboard. In the "Case" column he writes "N.D.U.O." Underneath what looks like "CARYNSS" crossed out. But once they find out that it is a Prio Motu demon and Angel writes it on the whiteboard, "N.D.U.O." disappears even though Angel did not rub it off.

Redefinition - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: After Wesley, Cordelia and Gunn sing "We Are The Champions" and Cordelia mentions tequila being evil, we see Wesley put aside some shot glasses. These glasses change position three times throughout the rest of the scene without anybody touching them.

Judgment - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Angel writes "Prio Motu" on the whiteboard and says that they need to find it and narrow it down to somewhere, Wesley says "I may be able to help us with that." In the immediate closeup of Angel, his stance has suddenly changed. In the previous shot he was standing with his arms straight down and his hands close together, but in the closeup they appear to be as though he has his hands on his hips.

I Will Remember You - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Angel and Buffy are sitting down talking about their kiss, Buffy picks up a coffee mug and holds it with both her hands. But in a wide shot shortly afterwards, she is no longer holding the mug and it has moved further down the table.

THGhost

Sleep Tight - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Right before Holtz and his men arrive at the hotel, Angel arranges three of Connor's toys in his cot. One of them is a teddy bear which he places in the middle of the cot. But once Holtz and his men arrive, the teddy bear is suddenly at the far end of the cot resting on the pillow.

Blood Money - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: In season three episode "Anne" of BTVS, The character "Anne" who later comes to season two of Angel running a youth shelter had a rather large red tattoo of half a heart on her arm. However, no trace of it is to be found when she is on Angel. Tattoo removal is a rather pricey procedure, and she seems to be tight on cash until she gets the two million. Even if W&H would have paid for the procedure, there would be some scarring or residual pigments for such a large tattoo. (It's definitely the same character - Anne says that she used to think vampires were cool, until she met one. That's a reference to her first appearance (as "Chanterelle"), in which she belonged to a vampire-loving cult.)

Sanctuary - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: In the rooftop scene, Buffy's hair is partly tied back and slightly curly but by the time she reaches the Police station it is completely loose and much curlier.

THGhost

Damage - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Angel is talking to Spike after he's had his hands re-attached, Spike is hooked up to an IV. If you watch the IV bag between shots, the fluid level changes from 1/4 full to 1/2 full.

A Hole in the World - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Gunn is talking to Wesley near the start of the episode, he mentions that he's tracked Lindsay down, and that he's been living under the name "Doyle", and holds out the lease of his apartment. There's a close-up of the lease a few seconds later, in which the name "Lindsay McDonald" can be seen.

To Shanshu In L.A. - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: In Season One Finale, "To Shanshu in LA" when Wes is lecturing Cordy on wants and desires, the number of bites taken from the doughnut changes, in one instance it breaks in half, most visibly when Wes takes a bite from Cordy's doughnut on the angle change. (00:13:31)

City Of - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Angel kicks the vampire out the window, he does it with little effort and movement, but when the shot goes from outside the building, he's swinging his body like he's put more into it.

Cybermoose

Heartthrob - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Angel has just returned and given Cordelia her necklace, watch Cordelia's hands; they keep changing position in each shot. In one shot she is trying to put the necklace on, in the next shot she appears to have given up and brings her hands down and bundles the necklace in her hand. Then when the shot changes to behind her, she is trying to fasten the necklace behind her neck again. This happens a few times during this scene.

Through The Looking Glass - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: when Angel transforms into his inner beast for the first time he is seen ripping off the right leg of an Imperial guard, but in following shot the leg is intact and it stays like that for the rest of the fight. (00:25:35)

To Shanshu In L.A. - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: In the season one finale "To Shanshu in LA," near the end Angel is fighting Vocah in the mausoleum and Angel rips off Vocah's mask, revealing the maggoty face Underneath. In subsequent shots of Angel from behind Vocah, you can still see the edges of the mask on his face. (00:34:30)
