The X-Files

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)

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)

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)

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)

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)

3 - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The Father is standing in some darkened part of the room, however in the next shot the room is all lit up and there is no darkened place there. (00:38:25)

The Host - S2-E2

Plot hole: Surprisingly, it takes the well-educated Scully quite a long time to realize that the tattoo on the victim's forearm is in Cyrillic lettering. (00:24:00)

Suggested correction: Cyrillic bears similarities to Greek, Slavic, Russian, and some Middle-Eastern lettering. Considering the tattoo was on the decomposing skin of a body that had been submerged in water, it's reasonable to assume it would be difficult for anyone to recognise. Also, nothing is ever mentioned about Scully's education to suggest she should have any particular knowledge about multi-cultural writing styles, the most we know is that she had a decent grasp of German.

Duane Barry (1) - S2-E5

Other mistake: An agent and Scully analyze the fragment taken out from Duane Berry's body. The agent draws Scully's attention to "small markings", which are half a monitor size, and Scully naively asks where they are. (00:39:00)

Ascension (2) - S2-E6

Plot hole: How was Duane able to hit Scully through the window and blinds if she was standing some distance from the window? (00:01:25)

Chop Luftmysza

The Host - S2-E2

Character mistake: Surprisingly, it took Scully quite a long time to realize that the tattoo on the victim's forearm is in Cyrillic lettering. (00:24:00)
