Angel

Season 5 generally

Continuity mistake: In the season 5 episode 'Destiny' we see that the first time Angelus meets William, he has already adopted a more cockney accent, but in an earlier episode of BtVS (Fool For Love) Angelus asks Spike "Since when do you talk like that", suggesting he changed his accent after they met.

Tomorrow - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: The entire area around Cordelia and Skip is supposed to be frozen in time. However, there is a car driving freely across a bridge in the background behind Cordelia. (The background is blurred, so it is difficult to see.)

Epiphany - S2-E16

Deliberate mistake: In the scene when Angel and Wesley are driving down the road, you can see that the big windshield, which is normally at the front of the car, has been removed. So that there would be no reflections of the crew that were filming those scene(s)

Disharmony - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: In 'Disharmony' Willow's hair is over her eye when she says "Thanks for the affirmation", but when we see her again a second later its tucked behind her ear. The shot wasn't on Cordelia long enough for her to have tucked it back. (00:16:45)

Darla - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Angel is talking to Darla on the phone there is a shot of Cordy, Wes & Gunn and you can see Cordy unfold her arms but when it goes back to Angel you can see her arms folded again.

Parting Gifts - S1-E10

Character mistake: When the bidding for Cordelia in the auction reaches $20,000, somebody bids for $30,000 after the auctioneer has said "going once, going twice" and they end up winning. The auctioneer should have in fact restarted saying "going once, going twice" after the $30,000 bid was made.

THGhost

Offspring - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: While waiting for Holtz to awake, Sahjhan is able to hold a bowl of mystical powder, and smoke a cigarette. But subsequent episodes establish that, on Earth, Sahjahn is incorporeal, and thus he shouldn't be able to perform those actions.

Cubs Fan

Ground State - S4-E2

Factual error: In the flashback to Gwen as a child in 1985, she is dressed in a jacket tagged with an "Old Navy" zipper. That clothing store chain wasn't founded until 1994.

Cubs Fan

A New World - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: The Axe that Groo throws at Conner at the start of the episode (Obviously CGI) doesn't match the movements of his hand, it leaves his hand before he actually throws it. (00:01:40)

Untouched - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Cordelia is bandaging Angel in the hotel lobby, she puts two pieces of tape on him: one at the base of the gauze and one over the wound itself. When he takes his shirt off in his room, he only has the one at the base. (00:12:20 - 00:15:30)

A New World - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: The first stake that Conner fires from his stake cannon (Obviously CGI) doesn't seem to emerge properly from the barrel of the cannon, it emerges out of thin air from the side. (00:01:25)

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.

More quotes from Angel

Trivia: About 7 seconds into the opening theme you see the face of a young man looking up (Just before you see Angel with the sword) That young man is Phantom Dennis. He is only seen once in episode 5 of the 1st season- Room with an Vu. After that he's an unseen "character" until season 4.

Epiphany - S2-E16

Question: If Angel didn't experience a "Moment of Perfect Happiness" from his night with Darla, why does he go through the same motions he went through from losing his soul before?

Answer: Due to his epiphany, Angel basically had the 'true darkness' he worked so hard to reattain ripped away from him, like his soul was after sleeping with Buffy.
