Blackadder

Season 4 generally

Deliberate mistake: Whenever a punch is thrown in this series, the punch either stops before it hits the person or goes beside them. It's most obvious in the last episode when General Melchett says 'Excellent native cockney wit' and punches Baldrick.

Duel and Duality - S3-E6

Deliberate mistake: There are several historical dates wrong in this episode. For a start, Prince George didn't become Prince Regent until 1811, and yet this is set before the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 (as Black Adder gives Wellington some advice on it). Similarly, Wellington didn't get the title "Duke of Wellington" until 1814. Again inconsistent with being pre-Trafalgar.

Duel and Duality - S3-E6

Deliberate mistake: There are a lot of jokes with the name of the book "The Prince and the Pauper." However the book was published in 1881, 51 years after the Prince Regent died.
