Angel

Calvary - S4-E12

Audio problem: During Lilah's failed attempt to rescue Angelus, when Gunn shoots at Angelus with the tranquilizer gun, Angelus passes out then hits the ground. When he is about to pass out, we hear the sound effect of him hitting the ground before he even begins to fall over, and instantly in the next camera angle he hits the ground. (00:08:20)

bane

Salvage - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: When Wesley tells Faith that Angelus is back, she says, "Step away from the glass" and hangs up the phone. When Wesley jumps from his chair (to allow Faith to smash through the glass and escape) you can see Faith behind the glass with her hands up to her face and standing, but in the close up of Faith her hands are at her sides and she is only just getting out of her chair. (00:23:20)

bane

The Magic Bullet - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: When Fred is running from the oncoming white car, she runs toward a blue car getting fixed on the side of the road, but jumps out of the way as the white car hits the blue car. Fred hits the ground and rolls over to the fence, but in a following shot it shows Fred only just hitting the ground and she is on the grass, not next to the fence. (00:14:20)

bane

Peace Out - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Jasmine picks up the car and throws it at Angel, it cuts to a shot of Angel moving out of the way then shows the car falling from the bridge. First mistake, Jasmine disappears from the shot when the car is falling, and second, the car falls directly straight and at a higher point than Jasmine actually threw it. (00:35:50)

bane

Eternity - S1-E17

Plot hole: When someone broke into Rebeca Lowell's place, Angel storms in to fight whoever it was the broke into her place. Problem is, Angel, being a vampire, has to be invited into someone's place before entering, he shouldn't be able to enter her house. (00:12:10)

Blood Money - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: During the charity event when it shows the birth year and death year of Holland Manners, it suggests he was 49 years old when he died. But in an earlier episode, he attempted to sacrifice his daughter for his 50th birthday.

Awakening - S4-E10

Other mistake: The Chinese writing shown tattooed all over Wo-Pang's body is nonsense (a small number of random characters repeatedly jumbled together), although Wesley reads it as if it is language. (Although one might argue that the writing is meant to be some sort of code, there is no evidence in the show itself to suggest that, and Wesley refers to "translating" rather than "decoding" it; for these reasons it is more likely to be simply a mistake rather than an intentional decision.) (00:16:40)

Watcher

War Zone - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: At the vampires' nest, when Knox is talking about Gunn's team, the vampire wearing the green sweatshirt and leather vest doesn't have yellow eyes like the other vampires do. And the female vampire doesn't either later, when the two groups face off after Gunn's sister is sired. (00:22:30 - 00:35:35)

Cubs Fan

Smile Time - S5-E14

Character mistake: While Gunn and Lorne are interrogating Framkin he sings a couple bars of a song "Courage and Pluck". However, though he has the ability to read people when they sing, and in fact in the very next episode knows that Fred is about to fall from just the words "you make me happy", Lorne doesn't read him.

Lord Mordo

Couplet - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When the demon Angel and Groo are chasing crashes through a wall, the resulting hole lets in enough sunlight to force Angel into the shadows. A few shots later, Wesley notices Angel standing in the entrance to the hole. Only a few moments have passed, so Angel shouldn't be able to stand where he is. (00:15:20 - 00:16:20)

Cubs Fan

Dead End - S2-E18

Other mistake: Later in the day when Cordy has recovered a little and is cleaning, Angel says something about seeing a reflection in the picture. We hear Cordy say, "What do you want," but the subtitles say, "What do you what?"

Waiting In The Wings - S3-E13

Cordelia: You want I should distract him? Make with the nice-nice while you slip by?
Angel: Don't be stupid. I'm that guy and the most beautiful woman I've ever seen is making eyes at me? It's either a bachelor party or a scam.
Cordelia: What did you just call me?
Angel: I'm sorry. You're not stupid.
Cordelia: No, after that.

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.

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).
