The X-Files

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Mulder jumps down by the fence in two configurations: one when he is filmed with a closeup (left side), and the other while he is filmed from the distance just a moment after (right side). (00:08:15)

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Other mistake: It seems that the first round fired by the hit squad destroys the camera or its power supply unit, because the satellite transmission is interrupted exactly at the moment the squad enters the train car. However, the members of the squad firstly shoot in the glass and then at the doctors. (00:06:25)

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the start, the train on the track adjacent to the train car's track is either moving or not, depending on the shot. (00:01:05)

Nisei (1) - S3-E9

Plot hole: The guy who was standing at the back of the train car was somehow able to move to the front of it. This was impossible because the train car was sealed and no unauthorized person could enter it. (00:00:50)

Oubliette - S3-E8

Other mistake: There is too much light on the ceiling for the tiny hole Amy accidentally discovers on the wall. In one shot it is plain to see that there are other light sources. (00:20:00)

2Shy - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Ellen stays by the door looking to the right from it, but in the next shot she looks straight at Mr Incanto. (00:33:55)

The List - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When the car hits the tree, one can notice that there's a stunt sitting behind the wheel instead of the warden. (00:42:05)

Paper Clip (3) - S3-E2

Factual error: Skinner says that he could not print the file. However, Scully somehow must have been able to print it in order to give a hard copy to Albert Holsteen for his translation. (00:26:35)

Paper Clip (3) - S3-E2

Factual error: Mulder tells Scully that he is trying 27828 and it is not working. It is not surprising that it is not working, because the Napier constant is not 27828, it is 271828. Plus they somehow they know how many digits from this constant should be entered on the keyboards. (00:15:55)

Paper Clip (3) - S3-E2

Other mistake: The heavy rain falls and bangs on the greenhouse roof, although Mulder and Scully are completely dry, even though they carry no umbrella with them. (00:10:20)

Anasazi (1) - S2-E25

Factual error: It is completely impossible the Thinker has made a digital copy that cannot be duplicated.

Soft Light - S2-E23

Factual error: Dr Banton's shadow devours the second policeman, however Banton cannot cast a shadow in that direction. (00:11:35)

Chop Luftmysza

Soft Light - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When the guy looks through the peephole, Dr Banton casts no shadow, while in other scenes he does. (00:01:55)

Soft Light - S2-E23

Revealing mistake: When taking a closer look at the doors of the hotel and the people entering it at the start, it can be easily noticed that this scene is played backwards. (00:00:05)

F. Emasculata - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Scully starts the procedure of taking out the bug from the body, she is wearing no mask, but when she finishes it she is wearing the mask. (00:21:45)

End Game (2) - S2-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder climbs up the tower of the submarine, his shadow is visible, projected on a studio wall. (00:32:40)

Chop Luftmysza

Fresh Bones - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: In one shot near the start the private is turning the steering wheel while in the previous and next shot he holds the wheel fast with his arms outstretched. (00:02:30)

Chop Luftmysza

Die Hand die Verletzt - S2-E14

Factual error: The loss of blood Shannon suffered was definitely insufficient to be the cause of her death. (00:25:00)

Chop Luftmysza

One Breath - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Mulder is running through the corridor, in the front shot the rack is missing and the person on the wheelchair suddenly appears, compared to the back shot. (00:14:00)

Chop Luftmysza

Red Museum - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: While talking, Mulder, Scully and the old farmer are leaning against the bar which is absent in the distant shot. (00:23:00)
