Apocrypha (2) - S3-E16

Factual error: At the beginning of the "Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man" episode Frohike says that the CSM appears when Trotsky was assassinated, i.e. 20 August 1940, but he does not claim that this is an exact date of birth. However, he further says that during the Nazi-Soviet Pact (1939-41) the CSM's father "kept NKVD informed on American plans to enter World War II" and for this reason he was executed before the CSM learned to walk. This means that his father could not have been executed earlier than in 1941. Assuming that babies learn to walk between a few months and 2 years, the CSM could not have been born earlier than in 1939. It means that in 1953 he should have been a young teenager, and not an adult man, as he is presented.

Triangle - S6-E3

Factual error: When Mulder is walking out of the cabin in Spender's uniform, the soldiers try to stop him. This is impossible since he is an officer (a lieutenant judging from the shoulder-straps) and they are privates, so they cannot give him orders. The only thing they can do in this situation is to salute him.

Drive - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When the car drives down the hill, the front and rear left window of the car is open, but in the shot from the inside of the car after it is stopped, there is Crump's blood on the closed rear left window.

The Beginning - S6-E1

Fallen Angel - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: Mulder talks to the man from NICAP on the other side of the fence. When the shot is looking at the man, film lights are visible reflected in his glasses. Since he is looking at Mulder, there should be lights on Mulder's side, but there are none.

End Game (2) - S2-E17

Factual error: In the opening sequence, we see a nuclear attack submarine beneath the ice in the Arctic Ocean. When the captain orders the ship to surface, one of the crewmen mutters, "Surface to what? We're under 32 feet of glacial ice!" Except that they're not under "glacial ice," they're under Arctic sea ice, which ranges from about 6 feet thick in the summer to about 15 feet thick in the winter.

The End - S5-E20

Plot hole: Mulder asks Spender to rewind the tape to the crucial moment on the video, however he could not have seen that moment, because he entered the meeting too late to watch it.

The End - S5-E20

Other mistake: In order to leave such bloody footprints, CSM must have stepped into the puddle of blood. It is impossible because the guy shot by CSM could not bleed so much blood in such short time, not mentioning that CSM must have intentionally stepped into it.

The End - S5-E20
