M*A*S*H

Hawkeye Get Your Gun - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, Colonel Potter is painting a portrait of Hawkeye. In the preceding episode, the Korean Surgeon, the painting is finished and hanging on the wall in Colonel Potter's office. It is hanging just to the left of the door. The time given is from the Korean Surgeon where you can see the painting hanging on the wall. (00:17:05)

Blood Brothers - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: As Mulcahy enters and is introduced by Potter, he assumes the podium, and clasps his hands behind his back. A second later, his arms are by his sides.

That's Show Biz - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: When the red head woman is playing the piano, it's a double. In the close up her hair is back and you can see her face. In the wide shots her hair covers her face so as to conceal the switch.

Fade Out, Fade In (60 mins.) - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: Charles and the G.I. lay waiting for an explosion. When the last mortar hits, the explosion is just to the left of the back tire, the jeep is untouched. After a cut, the jeep is trashed and burning.

Movie Nut

Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As Radar blows his bugle to call everyone to formation, the camera crew and equipment are reflected on the bell of the bugle.

Movie Nut

Oh, How We Danced - S9-E14

Revealing mistake: In the closing scene, as the camera looks at the collected crowd, the camo net over the building poorly hides the edge of the "sky" background and the sound stage walls.

Movie Nut

White Gold - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: As the men are sneaking by the tents, Hawkeye's voice is heard coming from a tent with opaque windows. A minute later in all the commotion, he's seen coming out of the Swamp.

Movie Nut

C*A*V*E - S7-E20

Other mistake: After pulling out of the camp to head for the cave, the bus is shown from several angles. Even though it's loaded, the shots of it travelling are re-used shots from an earlier episode, and the place it stops is a re-used shot from the episode "Rainbow Bridge"

Movie Nut

Edwina - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: As Hawkeye steps on the broken glass, his hair switches between unkempt to neat and back.

Movie Nut

Dear Dad - S1-E12

Other mistake: In this episode Max is wearing a red bandanna that he says "My mom gave me this when I shipped out. She said never take it off." However, in no episode before or after this does this good luck charm appear.

Movie Nut

Sticky Wicket - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the storage tent, between wide shots and close ups, the rank insignia on Blake's hat goes from centered to over his right eye and back a few times.

Movie Nut

Dear Dad, Again - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: At the end, Casey comes over to say good bye to Hawkeye. As he stands there, the glasses he wears go from round, speckled-brown frames to silver oval, and back.

Movie Nut

Life With Father - S3-E8

Audio problem: As Trapper opens the door to the swamp and the football flies in, a splash is heard as if it hit a tub of water, followed by the sound of a high, fluted vessel filling with water. Neither of those sounds make sense in this case. (00:07:00)

Check-Up - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: As Hawkeye calls for quiet in the officers' club, Henry pulls the tonearm off the record player, it comes away trailing a long wire behind it. Why would it even have a long wire to trail? After all, wire costs money too. It's not like the tonearm is designed to come off and be used remotely. My guess is: they lengthened it, so the shot could be taken several times without repairing the record player every time. Now, WHY they would do it that way and not simply use a dud record player is beyond me. (00:20:55)

Welcome to Korea (60 mins.) - S4-E1

Factual error: As Hawkeye, Radar' and BJ stop to change the flat, Hawkeye uses a scissor jack to raise the Jeep. However, the scissor jack was not in use for this model of Jeep.

Movie Nut

Radar's Report - S2-E3

Factual error: Radar claims in his report that Father Mulchahy tried to calm the prisoner by saying "bang zhao", thinking it means "peace and friendship" when it really means "your daughter's pregnancy brings much joy to our village." There is, unsurprisingly, not even a remotely similar word in Chinese that means either of those things.

5 O'Clock Charlie - S2-E2

Factual error: General Clayton is wearing ribbons on his regular fatigues. This is incorrect as the ribbons would only be displayed on the dress uniforms. Only the officer's rank would be on the fatigues.

Movie Nut

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Other mistake: After Klinger announces on the PA the camp's orders to bug out, more than a dozen of the following shots we see of the camp packing up are from the season 6 episode "Bug Out." (01:05:40)

Dear Dad - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: In Margaret's tent, as the candle alternates between lit and extinguished, the light lags a second or two between on and off.

Movie Nut

Hot Lips and Empty Arms - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Margaret comes into Henry's office, interrupting the "training film" Hawkeye's part flips from being on the left to the right and back.
