67 mistakes in season 2

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 Chiang, in all the outside shots of the truck it is very easy to see that all three of them have been replaced by doubles.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Conversion - S2-E10

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the mothership landing bay and the arrival of Charles' ship is stock footage that has been used several times before. There is also a continuity error here - the view from the landing bay shows darkness outside, but the next shot shows broad daylight.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Elizabeth is pricked by the rose, there is a closeup of her bleeding finger. Before and after this shot Kyle is holding her hand, but not in the closeup.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Audio problem: Just before Mike and Ham start shooting up the bridge, Jacob is seen being tortured, but his mouth is not moving with the sounds he is supposed to be making.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Littlest Dragon - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Kyle is with Donovan in the warehouse shooting at Philip, you always hear a bang coming out of the machine gun but sometimes a fire blast is not seen.

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Revealing mistake: The two Elizabeths are both played by the same actress, except in the shots where both are seen together. Continuity mistakes in the second Elizabeth's death scene reveal this, such as the second Elizabeth's head position changing, and the first Elizabeth's jacket being open/closed between shots.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Deception - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Mike pulls the necklace off the fake Julie, Julie's head is lying at a slightly different angle than when she changes into Lydia.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Champion - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Mike Donovan (riding a horse) is chased by a Visitor shuttle. It is obvious that there were recycled some shots from "The Final Battle" (Ep. 1). In "The Champion", Donovan does not have a laser pistol. However, there are some shots in which he has that pistol: obviously, those shots are taken from TFB.

The Wildcats - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: When Julie says 'We're gonna stand and fight' near the end of the episode, a boom mike briefly creeps into view at the top of the screen.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Wildcats - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When the two wildcats throw hand grenades at the Visitors, the grenades are obviously fake because the explosions do not occur at the same place as where the grenades land. The detonations have obviously been located in a safe place away from the actors.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Champion - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: When James' craft touches down outside the Sheriff's office, the wires suspending it from above are visible.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Champion - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: An obvious stunt double replaces Marc Singer when he kicks the sheriff's shotgun out of his hand, and also when the truck drives into the lake.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Champion - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mike is briefly visible at the top of the screen when the woman on the horse rides up to Mike and Kyle.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Willie dies, Howie says 'he's gone' but Willie's head position changes between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Deliberate mistake: The shot of Willy running away from the parked car is taken from the episode where Elias is killed. Two things give this away - 1) Willy is wearing a different coloured jacket and 2) he is supposed to be seriously injured yet he sprints along the street.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Audio problem: When Ham grabs Howie's armband and says 'our man' it's painfully obvious that the words have been dubbed by Marc Singer instead of Michael Ironside.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: When John is holding the two mice, if you watch his left arm closely you can see his arm jerk beneath the table where he replaces the real mouse with an edible one.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Betrayal - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When Charles reads the message about Nathan Bates coming out of the coma, there are two things to look for during the closeup of the note. The logo on the top is replaced by writing and he grips the note in a different position from before. The writing changes yet again when the note is seen from behind.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Hero - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Lydia eats the worm, it is not moving in the bowl before being picked up and is a different colour to all the moving ones. Needless to say it is not a real worm.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Hero - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: Several times during the Charles v Mike fight scene it is obvious that Charles has been replaced by a stunt double.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Deliberate mistake: The shot of the cocoon gestating is taken from episode 2. This is evident because there is sand underneath it and rocks in the background, but when the tracker finds it later, there are no rocks and sand in the tunnel.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Audio problem: At the start of Nathan Bates' angry rant, he says 'What do you mean, another van of children got through the border?' and it has obviously been dubbed as it sounds different from his following lines. My guess is that he swore originally, and it was taken out by the producers at the last minute.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Reflections in Terror - S2-E9

Audio problem: When Mike and Ham arrive at the church, their lines have been badly dubbed as Mike is still supposedly talking to Ham as he gets out and shuts the van door.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Mike radios Elias he identifies himself as 'wilderness' calling 'Shiloh'. When Elias acknowledges, he also identifies himself as 'wilderness' instead of 'Shiloh'.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: In all of the shots of Elizabeth and Jacob facing down the highway, there is a black piece of equipment protruding from the left side of the screen.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When Diana blasts Lydia's shuttle, there is an explosion but the craft is still visible and intact for a brief second.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Dissident - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The Visitor craft that Mike and Ham capture is not the same type that is seen later entering the hangar. The first one is a small shuttle, the second is a transport, distinguishable by the windows on the side.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Overlord - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: When the girl cuts her hand with the broken bottle, the glass never touches her hand. The blood looks really fake too.

Daz

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When the building explodes at the end, the white limousine parked in front of it completely disappears instead of exploding.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Audio problem: Just after Mike wishes Ham good luck, Mike shoots a guard off the roof, but he falls before the gunshot is heard.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Ham and Mike come out of the main door of the building, Mike shoots a guard standing on the roof. The guard falls off, but when the shot switches back to Mike the guard isn't seen falling to the ground.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Chiang does a roundhouse kick against Kyle Bates, he has been replaced by a stuntman. Easiest way to tell is by his hairstyle.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

Visitor's Choice - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When Diana offers the ants to the two officers, she is gripping the handle differently between the far shots and the closeup. Needless to say in the far shots the officers are not eating real ants.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Sanction - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Sean throws the car keys away after punching Ham, Ham's head is above the steering wheel. In the next side-on shot, his head is much lower.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Sanction - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Kyle rescues Elizabeth from the theater, if you look closely at his face he has been replaced by a stuntman.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Sanction - S2-E5

Plot hole: Kyle asks Elizabeth how she knocked out the guys at the theater, but he didn't actually see what happened as he was across the street facing away from the theater. And Elizabeth wouldn't have told him as she was trying to keep it a secret.

xx:xx:xx

Daz

The Littlest Dragon - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Philip is first seen with the metal thing on his lens a buzzing sound is heard. Afterwards, no buzzing sound is heard.
