V: The Final Battle: Part 3 (2 Hrs) - S1-E5

Factual error: When the world celebrates the Visitors' flight, there are scenes of joyous people from all around the world. Curiously, in each of these scenes it is daytime - even in Italy, China, and India, where it would be either night or dawn, given that L.A. time of the attacks is between 11 and 12 AM.

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Kyle, Elizabeth and Robin are in the truck being chased by Mr. Chiang, in all the outside shots of the truck it is very easy to see that all three of them have been replaced by doubles.

V: Part 2 (2 Hrs) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the old woman firebombs the Visitor craft, the scene changes from broad daylight to dusk, and then back to daylight again. The three Visitors standing in front of the 'Valley Cleaners' shop also disappear.

V: The Final Battle: Part 3 (2 Hrs) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Red Dust is spread, there is a brief shot of some California citizens watching, and we see the Bernsteins among them. But the actress at George Mofogen/Mr. Bernstein's side is not Bonnie Bartlett, who played Mrs. Bernstein in the first two episodes.

V: Part 1 (2 Hrs) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mike and his friend escape from the helicopters in El Salvador, Mike's hair, clothes and camera are wet just before they pass in the river. They were not wet in the previous shot.

Liberation Day - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: The last time Donovan hits Diana's craft with a laser, he hits it on the right side. But inside the craft it's the left hand side that explodes.

Liberation Day - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Diana is being chased by Donovan after crashing her craft, she has her normal human eyes. But during Donovan's strangulation attempt she has lizard eyes. As we saw in the original series, a Visitor's human eyes had to be removed by hand before the lizard eyes could be seen underneath.

V: The Final Battle: Part 2 (2 Hrs) - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After the failed raid on the Resistance's headquarters, Brian shoots the counterfeiter who led them there, but no scorch mark appears on his victim's shirt (later victims have these scorch marks).

V: Part 2 (2 Hrs) - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Donovan escapes from the L.A. mothership with Robin and the Mexican, he once turns the fighter he is using upside down by mistake. But since the passengers have their heads hanging down then, how come Robin's long hair does not?

Dreadnaught - S2-E2

Other mistake: After the transformation, Elizabeth is brought home. She lies asleep on the sofa. Who had the time to apply makeup to her? Her nails are shining, which means that someone has applied some polish on them. It is obvious that no actors (even male) will ever play without makeup; however, they should not have applied such an evident makeup to Elizabeth.

Dreadnaught - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: After a talk with Diana on the mothership, Lydia is left alone and then she takes a message out of her uniform. She wears a ring on her left middle finger and her nails are painted red. In the following shot we see Lydia's hands put the message into a box. The hands do not have their nails painted and wear no ring whatsoever.

Season 2 generally

Revealing mistake: During the title sequence when Blair Tefkin's name comes up, Mike Donovan is riding a horse. A Visitor craft passes overhead and shoots at Donovan, but the laser appears out of nowhere instead of from the craft.

Liberation Day - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Robert and Julie are attacked by snakes outside the cave, notice that in the shots when you see the backs of Robert and Julie there are hardly any snakes on the ground (I counted one) compared to other shots. The shots of Robert's leg as he sweeps the snakes away are almost certainly of a snake handler instead of the actor.

V: The Final Battle: Part 3 (2 Hrs) - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: During the final battle in the mothership hangar, Donovan shoots a Visitor soldier who falls off his catwalk onto a transporter. When he impacts, a styrofoam block used to cushion his fall bounces off the roof.

V: Part 1 (2 Hrs) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the battle in El Salvador, the jar on the chair behind Mike and his friend is shot. Some shots later, the jar has disappeared.

Dreadnaught - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Elizabeth's arm is waving about above the cocoon, it is covered with scaly skin. But when she is seen standing up pulling the scaly skin off her face, both her arms have no scaly skin, and there wasn't enough time for her to remove it.

The Deception - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Ham drives the van through the road barrier, the pieces fall off very easily considering how slowly he was travelling. In the next shot it is shown that the remaining barrier sections are both split vertically, revealing that they were sawed in the same direction beforehand, then the 'broken' pieces loosely affixed before the collision.

Breakout - S2-E3

Audio problem: When the two dogs attack the Visitors, you can see them biting the Visitors on the ground but barking is still heard.

The Deception - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Diana and Lydia are walking in the mothership corridor there are two things to look out for. When Lydia first starts talking a section of the whitescreen appears in the top right of the picture. Then a couple of seconds later the shadow of the camera appears on the door to her left.

Liberation Day - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Donovan finds Diana's abandoned car in the desert, the outside shots of the chopper reveal that it is not Marc Singer at the controls.
