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.

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

Revealing mistake: When Julie is almost converted, a fake Donovan bursts in and starts firing a blaster rifle. Look closely at the first shot: the rifle is held way too high, so the shot should have gone into the ceiling; yet the blast goes straight forward.

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

Plot hole: During the raid on the pumping station, Elias overpowers a Visitor guard and throws him off the catwalk - into a hall full of workers, engineers, and even more guards. Strange that no one notices.

Dreadnaught - S2-E2

Audio problem: When Ham Tyler is shooting at Diana, two holes are made in a piece of wood behind her but only one shot is heard. (00:37:40)

Daz

V: The Final Battle: Part 1 (2 Hrs) - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Julie and Robert infiltrate the hospital using the forged passes, the pass is shown twice as it is inserted into the reader. In the first shot, it slides in down whole, but the reader is still buzzing. In the second, the card starts sliding in again.

Dreadnaught - S2-E2

Plot hole: At the press conference Ham Tyler positions himself only a few feet in front of about half a dozen security guards, yet not one of them notices him, even when he starts shooting. (00:35:45)

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Plot hole: Ham Tyler doesn't recognise Kyle Bates even though he met him in the internment camp in episode 3. Ham also makes exactly the same remark about Nathan Bates in both episodes. (00:10:30)

Daz

Breakout - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Elizabeth supposedly starts playing the piano, her shoulders aren't moving so it's easy to tell she's not touching any keys, even though notes are heard. (00:08:25)

Daz

The Champion - S2-E14

Plot hole: In the opening scene we see Mike and Kyle driving in the truck. Kyle remarks that Mike has been driving since midnight and it is broad daylight outside. So they have supposedly been driving for several hours. Yet they start talking about their mission as if they have only just got in to the truck. As anyone who has been in that kind of situation knows, everyone always discusses the important stuff at the start of the journey, so it is clear that the scene has been poorly scripted. (00:02:00)

Daz

The Rescue - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mike is visible at the top of the screen shortly after James starts talking to Diana in the mothership control room. (00:04:05)

Daz

The Conversion - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Chris and Ham are sitting down talking about the conversion process, Ham gets up and walks over to the map. When he turns around Chris is suddenly standing in front of him, whereas he should still be sitting down. (00:37:35)

Daz

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Audio problem: When Julie walks into Nathan Bates' office and says 'I've got a question for you' her lips do not match what is heard. (00:33:55)

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Plot hole: Daniel is killed by Diana at the end of episode 7, but he reappears at the end of episode 8. (00:45:00)

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Deliberate mistake: Several shots have been taken from Series 1, including the group of guards firing in the hangar bay, and various shots of the shuttles during the chase.

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Kyle and Sarah arrive to help Mike and Ham, they drive through a group of Visitor guards, who all dive onto the embankment out of the way. But two seconds later, two of the guards are back on the dirt track. (00:35:40)

Daz

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: Extremely obvious stunt double for Kyle Bates when he escapes from the clutches of Mr Chiang and jumps off the roof. The stunt double looks absolutely nothing like the actor, and his face is very visible. (00:39:00)

Daz

The Sanction - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Klaus skids and falls off his motorbike it is obviously a stuntman as his body is much stouter than the actor's. (00:17:25)

Daz

The Sanction - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mike appears briefly in the top left of the screen when Julie tells Mike to wait after he walks out of the meeting room. (00:07:05)

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Mike is about to kiss Diana, he puts his thumb on her chin. Then in the next shot his thumb is away from her chin. (00:28:20)

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Sean enters Mike's bedroom after the capture and says 'dad, you're awake', the boom mike is reflected briefly in the wall mirror. (00:18:40)
