The X-Files (1993)

40 mistakes in season 6 - chronological order

The Beginning - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: When Scully grabs Mulder's hand, his watch shows 11:25 AM, but when the agents enter the house, the scene's stamp reads "Phoenix, Arizona, 4:58 PM."

Drive - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: When the car drives down the hill, the front and rear left window of the car is open, but in the shot from the inside of the car after it is stopped, there is Crump's blood on the closed rear left window.

Triangle - S6-E3

Factual error: When Mulder is walking out of the cabin in Spender's uniform, the soldiers try to stop him. This is impossible since he is an officer (a lieutenant judging from the shoulder-straps) and they are privates, so they cannot give him orders. The only thing they can do in this situation is to salute him.

Triangle - S6-E3

Factual error: The alternate version of Scully is identified as an OSS agent, but the OSS did not exist in 1939.

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When the craft is flying over Scully, Mulder, and Morris Fletcher, in the first shot Fletcher stands with his back turned to the agents, but in the next shot he is facing them.

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Jeff is shown for the first time inside the car, we can see that Mulder's face is facing the windshield, but in previous and next shots he is turned toward his colleagues.

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Mulder is driving away from the gas station, crew members as well as some filming equipment can be seen reflected in the car's body. Mulder is in a pretty desolate area, so seeing people reflected in the car's body would in all likelihood be crew members and not random citizens.

Dreamland (1) - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When Mulder - whilst trapped in the body of Morris Fletcher - is doing various poses in front of the mirror, several of his movements and the corresponding movements from the realized reflection of Morris Fletcher are slightly out of sync with each other.

Dreamland II (2) - S6-E5

Other mistake: When Morris Fletcher walks into the bar, in the first mirror reflection Mulder and Fletcher are walking together (Mulder followed by Fletcher) for a short but noticeable moment.

Terms of Endearment - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: During the conversation with Scully regarding Wayne Weinsider, Mulder says "I don't know why. I'm not a psychologist", which must be a big surprise for all viewers, to say the least. Mulder graduated from Oxford University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology (e.g. "Dreamland II") and he worked for some time as a profiler for the FBI (e.g. "Young at Heart").

Rain King - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: When the rain starts to fall, Daryl opens the window and reaches out his left hand. However, in the next shot facing the windscreen he holds the steering wheel with both his hands.

Rain King - S6-E8

Factual error: When Mulder and Scully first arrive in Kroner, Kansas, you can see mountains in the background. There are no mountains in Kansas, only valleys and hills.

xx:xx:xx

Rain King - S6-E8

Factual error: In the scene where Daryl Mootz pulls up in his SUV for the rain-making event, there is a shot of the SUV with a front Kansas license plate. Cars in Kansas only have rear license plates.

S.R. 819 - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Skinner enters the embassy garage, the rear left window of his car is closed, but after the shot of the Tunisian diplomat the window suddenly becomes open.

S.R. 819 - S6-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When the Senator opens his car doors, a filming crew member in blue jeans is reflected in the door.

Tithonus - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Malcolm Wiggins stabs Alfred Fellig in the back three times, including once in the middle of his back to the right of his spine. However, when Scully is examining Fellig's back later in the episode, he has at least six stab wounds, and all of them are around his shoulder blades.

Serious B

Tithonus - S6-E10

Factual error: Lewis Brady had a "Felon wanted by the FBI" file in 1929, but the FBI wasn't called the FBI until 1935; until then it was just the "Bureau of Investigation."

Two Fathers (1) - S6-E11

Plot hole: It is virtually impossible that such a conspiracy-experienced, cautious, and wise person as the Second Elder would be so naive and careless to just let the "Dr. Openshaw" faceless alien to his house, knowing from the CSM that Dr. Openshaw had died that evening.

xx:xx:xx

Two Fathers (1) - S6-E11

Plot hole: Agent Spender watches in horror as Alex Krycek stabs the neck of an alien directly in front of him and the usual bubbling green blood spills out. In every other instance of a human being in such close proximity to the green blood, the person has immediately taken a painful reaction to the substance, including severe damage to the eyes. Spender however is completely unaffected, as is Krycek, who was also close enough to feel the effects.

New this month Suggested correction: The Syndicate is well aware of the effects that the alien blood has on humans and the inherent risk of being exposed to it. They would have inoculated Spender and Krycek in preparation for this.

Serious B

Arcadia - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully are moving into the house, there is a shot of Mulder's watchface which reads that the date is the 7th. A few minutes later, Scully is walking around with a video camera, and narrating and she says the date is February the 24th.
