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. (00:01:05)

Daz

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. (00:04:40)

Daz

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. (00:05:30)

Daz

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. (00:36:40)

Daz

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. (00:37:45)

Daz

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. (00:06:00)

Daz

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. (00:09:30)

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. (00:31:45)

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

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

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

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. (00:24:25)

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Other mistake: At the end of episode 2, Robin escapes from the Visitors into the wilderness. In episode 3, she's seen in an internment camp with no explanation as to how she got there. She is also wearing different clothes. She later escapes the camp along with other resistance members. Then at the beginning of episode 4, she is back alone in the wilderness, wearing the same clothes as at the end of episode 2. My guess is that episode 3 was added as an afterthought. (00:01:30)

Daz

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. (00:07:05)

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

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)

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ham Tyler is fixing the van in the garage, there is sunlight shining on him when the camera is facing out onto the street, but there is only normal daylight when the camera is facing inside the garage. (00:24:25)

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Diana is about to eat the white mouse, Donovan puts the tray of mice down on the bed, then in the following shot he puts it down again. (00:28:10)

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

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. (00:32:50)
