M*A*S*H

Bottle Fatigue - S8-E16

Factual error: The Chinese soldier holding the grenade in the operating theatre is speaking Japanese. (00:20:00 - 00:22:00)

Budoshi

Goodbye, Farewell and Amen - S11-E16

Continuity mistake: B.J. is holding a Korean child who is subbing in for his own daughter when Margaret hands B.J. a piece of cake. Just as it looks as if he is about to feed the cake to the girl, the scene cuts to a full facial shot of Hot Lips, then cuts back to B.J. The cake has disappeared. There wasn't enough time to eat it all, and neither the child nor B.J. is eating. B.J. has no icing on his fingers; it has just disappeared. (01:16:50)

Payday - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Radar talks to Hawkeye at the officer's club, Radar moves his hand from his chin to the bar top, but in the next shot his hand is back up on his chin. (00:11:45)

Alcoholics Unanimous - S3-E9

Cease-Fire - S1-E23

Life Time - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: When they get the soldier into the OR, Hawkeye tells Klinger to get his canvas tub from the swamp. Yet Col. Potter specifically ordered them to get rid of the tub in episode titled "None Like it Hot" - which they did.

The Incubator - S2-E12

Factual error: The Logan Ramsey character tells Hawkeye and Trapper that with enough notice he could get them anything, even a B-52. The first B-52A entered service in 1954, a year after the Korean War ended.

Bruce

The Army-Navy Game - S1-E20

Other mistake: Hawkeye reads the propaganda flyer, he says. "Give yourselves up, you can't win. Douglas MacArthur." Trouble is, the papers are all advertising for a flying company called Ace Eli.

Movie Nut

The Trial of Henry Blake - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: As Klinger flies on his home made glider it's easy to tell that it's a bad composition shot. Also, nobody moving in the shot of him taking off stopped to notice him.

Movie Nut

Bug Out (60 mins.) - S5-E1

Character mistake: At the end of the episode, while Col. Potter is in the helicopter asking where they are, the pilot says they are about 10 miles west of Inchon. Col. Potter says this is no good and he tells the chopper pilot to "head west, towards Inchon." If they are already west of Inchon, heading west will take them further from Inchon.

Suggested correction: Potter tells the pilot to head to a different city, Chuksan (not sure of its spelling).

Bishop73

Payday - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: After Frank switches pearls, he gets out of the tent and the door and it closes. A moment later, he's crawling out the door again.

The Army-Navy Game - S1-E20

Other mistake: Hawkeye loosened the nut and locking ring, but after lifting the assembly, it was obvious that these were steps used only to heighten tension. There was no locking device of any kind between the tail and body of the bomb.

Movie Nut

The Long-John Flap - S1-E19

Other mistake: After Klinger gives the long johns to Mulcahy, he "disappears." But if you look closely through the camo net, you can see him in the shadows of the background.

Movie Nut

The Ringbanger - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: As Buzz is stopped at the tent door by Hawkeye and Trapper, the vertical edge of the "sky" is seen over the top of the hospital building, behind the camo net.

Movie Nut

Too Many Cooks - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: After BJ and Hawkeye taste Klinger's plateful of Spam Parmesan they all sit down at the table, and when BJ pulls the plate away from Hawkeye it cuts to another angle and the knife has jumped to the other side of the plate, and the fickle cup keeps sidling across the table to be beside the bowl depending on the angle.

Alcoholics Unanimous - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Trapper and Hawkeye are in the Swamp they start arguing, and just as Hawkeye grabs the mandolin the edge of the Swamp set can be seen at the top, left corner of the screen.

Alcoholics Unanimous - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Father Mulcahy's finishing up his Sunday service with only Klinger, who's wearing a fetching red hat, there are nine stacked books at the corner of the table, but when it cuts to Mulcahy's closeup there are now only six stacked books (which will soon be used for the 11:00 Protestant service when Trapper and Hawkeye will pray for booze).

Goodbye, Cruel World - S8-E21

Visible crew/equipment: As Kelley gets up to allow Sidney to sit, the tip of the boom mike bobs in the top of the frame.

Movie Nut

Dear Dad - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Frank hits the pole supporting the center of the tent, which lets the tent collapse. However, in later episodes, the tents, especially hers, has a sturdy wood frame and doesn't need a center pole.

Margaret's Marriage - S5-E24

Visible crew/equipment: As Margaret gets into the chopper, the lighting rigs, camera and crew are reflected in the canopy.
