Angel

Time Bomb - S5-E19

Other mistake: Angel implies that Wesley told him the device will kill Illyria. But this Angel is from earlier in the timeline, as shown when he tries to tell Wes and Spike things they have just told their Angel. So Wes did not tell this Angel that the Mutari generator will kill Illyria. Angel should know nothing about it. (00:36:30)

Blind Date - S1-E21

Character mistake: Angel comments that Vanessa was acquitted because of a hung jury. A hung jury means the jury couldn't come to a unanimous decision; the case would require a new trial, while an acquittal means the jury found her not guilty, and she couldn't be tried again for the crime.

Dad - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Lorne covertly warns Angel that the hotel is bugged, he places a note in Angel's pocket with his hand on Angel's shoulder. When Wolfram and Hart watch the video feed later, the hand that was on Angel's shoulder is now in front of Angel's chest. (00:22:50 - 00:37:00)

Five By Five - S1-E18

Plot hole: During the scene where Angel tries to work out where Wesley is being held hostage we learn that the man Faith beat up at the start is still alive in the hospital and that it's his apartment she's staying in. Angel bursts into the apartment to save the day, but that's not possible without an invitation, as the owner is alive, whether or not he's actually there. (00:34:00 - 00:36:40)

Happy Anniversary - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When Wesley accidentally turns off the power, the room briefly goes dark, then lights up with moonlight/streetlight from outside. In the real world, that light would have been visible the whole time in the background. (00:01:45)

Phoenix

Judgment - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: Just after Angel kills the quan-eyed demon, he exits the room behind the smashed mirror. On the widescreen DVD you see Angel's reflection in the mirror to the right of the smashed mirror (even though vampires don't have a reflection). (00:03:40)

Carpe Noctem - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When the gang rescues Angel and returns him to his normal form towards the end of the episode, Cordelia shocks him unconscious with a taser and he falls to the floor, lying on his front. But when Fred whacks him on the head with her baseball bat, he is suddenly lying on his back.

THGhost

Awakening - S4-E10

Other mistake: During Angel's fight with the Beast, he is choked by the throat and begins gagging. Since Angel doesn't breathe, there's no air for him to lose, so he shouldn't gag.

Dad - S3-E10

Plot hole: When Angel is being pursued by the Lilliad demons, he is holding his son Connor and is talking to him in the car. Later on it is revealed that he is in fact holding a teddy bear with a bomb attached to it. If it wasn't his son, why was he talking to it? It couldn't be to fool the Lilliad demons because they wouldn't be able to hear him, as they were in separate vehicles.

THGhost

Time Bomb - S5-E19

Continuity mistake: In the first scene with Wesley and Gunn, Wesley goes over to a cabinet to fetch a book. On his way back to his desk, the position at which he is holding the book changes instantly as the camera cuts to a different angle.

Trivia: In the opening credits there is a shot of a girl standing alone on the corner of a street. This was taken from the Buffy episode "Anne", when Buffy was staying in Los Angeles.

Show generally

Question: In the opening credits, just before the shot of Phantom Dennis, is the shot of the girl crying Darla? What episode is that from?

Answer: Nope, it's not Darla - that's Rachel from the episode "In The Dark", the third episode of the show (the one with Spike's magnificent opening monologue).
