A Paige from the Past - S4-E10

Show generally

Factual error: Considering how the sisters and Cole every now and then - especially during seasons 3-5 - find themselves in some churchyard or cemetery, it should be noted that there are no such places in San Francisco! Except for the original one at an old nunnery, from before the city was founded, and the Presidio Military Churchyard, all graves were moved in the first half of the 20th Century to the cemeteries at Colma, a few miles south of SF. This was done due to the sanitary risks in case of earthquakes, and the lack of space for churchyards downtown.

A Paige from the Past - S4-E10

Factual error: When we see Paige's 1994 bedroom, she has what appears to be a Bride of Chucky doll. The movie "Bride of Chucky" wasn't released until 1998. (00:16:20)

Love's A Witch - S6-E5

Factual error: When Phoebe was telling Paige that the energy ball did not come from the other house, Paige says she saw it come through the window. She could not have seen it because she was in the other room and the door to Richard's dad's office was closed.

Sight Unseen - S3-E5

Factual error: When developing a photo it's first put into a developer chemical, which shows the picture up, then a stop, which stops it from developing anymore, then a fix which "sets" the photo. But in the basement, Prue puts the exposed photo into a tray with chemicals in it where it starts to develop, then into a second tray where it develops fully.

Show generally

Factual error: Throughout season 8 the members of the Triad wore a pentagrams on their gowns that would alternate from the point being up and point being down. They should only be wearing a pentagram with the point facing down. Pentagrams with the point facing up is the symbol for practitioners of white (good) magic while those who practice black (evil) magic is symbolized by the point facing down.

Thank You for Not Morphing - S1-E3

Factual error: At the end of the episode the girls are waiting for Victor. He doesn't show up but sends a package containing a home movie. As they are watching it, they see Christmas when they are little girls. Phoebe can't be more than 4 yrs old, 5 at the most. Since she was born in 1975 that would make the home movie take place in approx 1980, but she gets a Wedding Day Barbie, which didn't come out until 1996.

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Be Careful What You Witch For - S2-E22

Plot hole: When teenage Prue has run away with the demon, and Phoebe and Piper find her in the park, teenage Prue is 'killed'. Her sisters drive her home to get Leo to heal her, but shouldn't they have just been able to call to Leo to orb to them when Prue was first hurt, and heal her in the park, and save driving back to the Manor and risk Prue dying?

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: I see orbing to the park but he didn't heal her, she was already dead and he can't heal the dead, that's why the genie brought her back - that's what Phoebe wished for.
