Angel

The Prodigal - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kate finds her father dead, just after the shot of his neck wounds, she is sitting over him and you can see the father blinking a few times. (00:33:00)

pinkwafer

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.

War Zone - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: When Alonna is kidnapped, there is a vampire on the left side of the screen who is not wearing any mask over his face, though sunlight is falling on him. (00:26:00)

To Shanshu In L.A. - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: In "To Shanshu in LA" in season one, as Angel is pulling out of parking lot to follow the W&H Trucks, you can see his reflection in his rear view mirror (vampires have no reflections). Also odd that throughout the first season the rear view mirror is removed in some episodes. (00:31:19)

The Ring - S1-E16

Factual error: According to the show, Angel learned quite a few languages when he was evil. However, when he tries to start a conversation with a red-faced demon, he makes terrible mistakes. He said "Hablo Espanol?" which literally means "Do I speak Spanish?" and he said something like "Are you from Byelorussia?" in a tongue that hardly resembled Russian, although according to the captions, it was said in Russian.

Grigory the Wanderer

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.

Judgment - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Angel is fighting the demon who protects the pregnant woman, at one point a crew member (in ordinary street clothes) shows behind them for a few frames.

Forgiving - S3-E17

Factual error: Wesley has his throat cut, deeply enough to at least nick the artery (based on the amount of blood) and the windpipe (based on his difficulties breathing and talking later on), yet he somehow survives being left alone in the park for over 24 hours. In reality, he would have been dead long before then.

Shay

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)

City Of - S1-E1

Angel: Doyle, I don't want to share my feelings, I don't want to open up. I want to find the guy that killed Tina, and I want to look him in the eye.
Doyle: Then what?
Angel: Then, I'm going to share my feelings.
