The X-Files

The Sixth Extinction (2) - S7-E1

Character mistake: When Kritschgau is testing Mulder's remote viewing capabilities, he tells Mulder that he is at about 5% accuracy. However, Mulder got at least two right and not enough time had passed for him to have had 40 opportunities, so his percentage of accuracy should be higher than five. (00:27:00 - 00:27:45)

Anasazi (1) - S2-E25

Character mistake: Mulder asks Scully about "the fourth commandment about obeying the Sabbath, the part when God made heaven and Earth " However, Scully as a Catholic should know that this is the third commandment for Catholics. This is also an indirect indication that Mulder was raised in Jewish religion. (00:09:25)
