City Of - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: In the last scene of the episode, Angel kicks the guy out of the glass building. This guy's a vampire, and you can see his reflection in the glass windows. Vampires aren't supposed to have reflections.

Expecting - S1-E12

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.

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)

Judgment - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: You see Cordelia and Wesley walking without Angel through the gym in the mirror (because vampires have no reflection). In the Widescreen Edition you can see Angel waiting at the right side of the screen to join in a "normal" shot. (00:02:45)

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)

The Trial - S2-E9

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Angel fights the demon for the first of his trials, upon cutting the demon in half for the second time he chains the two halves to the walls. When he drags the upper half of the demon to the wall, the green legs of the actor are momentarily visible, when they should have been removed by CGI. (00:29:00)

Reunion - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: When Angel kicks in Lindsay's door, it opens cleanly into the room. The doorknob latch in a real door would have torn out part of the frame if it was not turned back with the doorknob first. (00:04:25)

Phoenix

Judgment - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Right after Cordelia has her vision, Wesley goes to the whiteboard. In the "Case" column he writes "N.D.U.O." underneath what looks like "CARYNSS" crossed out. But once they find out that it is a Prio Motu demon and Angel writes it on the whiteboard, "N.D.U.O." disappears even though Angel did not rub it off.

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.
