The X-Files

Lazarus - S1-E15

New this month Factual error: When Mulder gives Scully the birthday card, she says that he is two months early. Given that Scully's birthday is on 23 February, the time of the episode should be sometime near Christmas. However, through the whole episode, there is no sign of Christmas time (not a single Christmas tree, no Christmas decorations, etc).

731 (2) - S3-E10

New this month Revealing mistake: At the very beginning of the scene when the bomb is shown, in the lower part of the screen a moving red spot appears which probably comes from the reflection of the bomb's red diode in the camera.

Bad Blood - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: I don't know if this is visible in all formats, but on the newest UK release on DVD, watching in widescreen, it's amazingly obvious. When Mulder recovers from the vampire attack, he gets up from the floor and breaks up a chair to make a stake. There is a shot of his feet as he smashes the legs off and bends to pick up a piece. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see a crew member's hand carefully and quickly placing a piece of wood on top of the pile for Mulder to pick up.

Paper Clip (3) - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder and Scully enter the abandoned mine through a doorway, the viewer can see at right in the distance a number of people sitting on a wall, and one crouching in front of the wall with what looks like a dog. They are sitting still, but there is still movement there.

Ascension (2) - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Mulder is in the Tram car ascending the Mountain, to rescue Scully, he pulls all of the things out of under the top left-hand seat, but when the scene moves to Krycek in the booth, you don't see any of the thing that Mulder threw out.

Signs and Wonders - S7-E9

Visible crew/equipment: A mic boom operator is visible on the left hand side of the screen wearing a white t-shirt, beige shorts, and sneakers. He's carrying the boom mic and following Mulder and Scully. You can see him when Mulder and Scully arrive at the "Church of God with Signs and Wonders" for the first time...when Mulder delivers the line "That's funny, I knew a couple Catholic schoolgirls who were experts at it."

Fallen Angel - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Mulder helps Max lie down he notices the scar behind his right ear but when he tells Scully about it later he says that the scar is behind his left ear.

Shadows - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Howard Graves' tombstone states that he died on the 5th of October, but the opening scenes date stamp says the 22nd of September when it was supposed to be two weeks after Graves had died.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Scully goes to Mulder's room, thinking she has the marks, after he has checked her we see Scully's hair is behind her collar, but when the shot changes to her going to sit down, her hair is now hanging out.

Shadows - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder and Scully are talking about Howard Graves faking his own death, when they get to the bottom of the stairs, you can see the pole which the camera used to travel down the stairs.

Ghost in the Machine - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: While the computer is being infected with the virus, Peterson turns away from the screen to face Scully. Two seconds later, after the shot of Scully, the same shot is shown again but in reverse so that Peterson turns back to the screen. It's more obvious if you look at the weird way his eyes blink in the reversed shot.

Darkness Falls - S1-E20

Plot hole: At the end, a man is attacked while standing in the light of his automobile's headlights. Supposedly, though, the bugs were terrified of light.

Pilot - S1-E1

Squeeze - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Scully is having lunch with her friend just after the intro, we see at one shot from behind her she is holding a knife, then when the shot changes she is no longer holding it.

Arcadia - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully are moving into the house, there is a shot of Mulder's watchface which reads that the date is the 7th. A few minutes later, Scully is walking around with a video camera, and narrating and she says the date is February the 24th.

Tithonus - S6-E10

Factual error: Lewis Brady had a "Felon wanted by the FBI" file in 1929, but the FBI wasn't called the FBI until 1935; until then it was just the "Bureau of Investigation."

Squeeze - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Tooms is in the cell right at the end, we see when his food is being brought over to him on the tray that there is a drink and a bun, when the shot changes to the other side of the door the drink and bun have swapped sides. When the shot changes back to the other side of the door, the tray is now the other way around and then when the shot goes back to the other side the whole tray has now disappeared.

Conduit - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Mulder is running after the boy near the end, and the motorcycles are coming, we see him throw the torch quite far away, yet when the motorcycles are gone we see it is right next to him.
