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.
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.
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.
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.
