The X-Files

Blood - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Mulder gets out of the car, it's dark outside, but when the helicopter comes, it is still daylight. (00:25:00)

E.B.E. - S1-E17

Plot hole: After less than 1 minute of investigation Scully found out that the photograph was bogus. It tells a lot about the "very best" specialists, mentioned by the Deep Throat later on, who had prepared the photo. (00:19:10)

Unrequited - S4-E16

Revealing mistake: The handle and latch next to the supposedly working intercom on the chain-link security gate entrance to the "White Hand" facility is obviously non-functioning - when the gate is opened it can be seen there are no functional operating parts. (00:08:40 - 00:09:15)

Never Again - S4-E13

Factual error: The first time we see Ed's tattoo, it is supposed to have been freshly done and he even removes the new bandage. However, there is no blood or excess ink on his arm, no redness around the lines, no swelling at all; no way at all that it could be a fresh tattoo.

The Sixth Extinction (2) - S7-E1

Character mistake: When Scully is reviewing part of the translation she has made of the alien artifact, there are four amino acids that she has written: Ademine, cytosine, thymine and guanine. Ademine is misspelled. It should be adenine. (00:23:10)

The Field Where I Died - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Scully is searching through the pictures to find Sarah Kavanaugh and Sullivan Biddle, she turns the photographs over and they have a label on them to say who they are. Yet when the shot changes angle to show the photos from the back, the labels have disappeared.

Unusual Suspects - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: During the shootout in the warehouse, a wedding ring is visible on Mulder's finger. While it's possible Mulder was married before, the Lone Gunmen are shown hacking into Mulder's FBI dossier and Langly reads out that he is single.

The Calusari - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: When the dad and Charlie are eating their ice cream cones at the beginning of the episode of the episode you can tell that the ice cream is fake.

Unusual Suspects - S5-E3

Factual error: When Suzanne Modeski retreats to the restroom with a pair of pliers to pull out her tooth, she is only gone for approximately 15 seconds before the gunmen follow her. For a petite woman to rip out a strong, healthy molar from her own mouth (which also had metal prongs underneath in her gum) would not take so little time, no matter how determined she was. It's also highly unlikely that the lack of anaesthetic would have allowed her to do so without making pained noises.
