Deep Throat - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Mulder pulls away from the hotel after telling Scully he is going to shower and then they'll leave. The tire marks from previous takes are visible on the pavement.

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)

Genderbender - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Mulder is examining the residue on the mouth of the deceased man in the beginning, the dead body's right eye twitches.

Bad Blood - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: I don't know if this is visible in all formats, but on the newest UK release on DVD, watching in widescreen, it's amazingly obvious. When Mulder recovers from the vampire attack, he gets up from the floor and breaks up a chair to make a stake. There is a shot of his feet as he smashes the legs off and bends to pick up a piece. In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see a crew member's hand carefully and quickly placing a piece of wood on top of the pile for Mulder to pick up.
