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. (00:39:50)

Fire - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: In the shot where Mulder is jumping as to avoid being burnt by fire set by Cecil the caretaker, it is easy to see that it's a stuntman instead of Mulder. (00:38:35)
