10 mistakes in Ghost in the Machine

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.

Audio problem: When Jerry uses the elevator, the voice of the computer reads out the floors as "twenty-third floor, fourth floor, fifth floor" etc, missing out the "twenty-" prefix until the 29th floor. The DVD subtitles list these numbers with their prefix, so this was not intentional.

Continuity mistake: When we watch Scully typing from behind, the text she types is ahead of the text we saw at a distance in the previous shot.

Visible crew/equipment: Mulder is talking to the computer programmer in the prison. The shot starts on the bars and pulls back. A significant shadow caused by the camera is visible on the right side of the frame.

Continuity mistake: When Scully gets out of the car, it is parked much closer to the curb than in the previous shot.

Other mistake: It's incomprehensible why such an intelligent COS has to print out the stolen data on Scully’s monitor, risking being exposed.
