Family Guy

Road to Germany - S7-E3

Barely Legal - S5-E8

Audio problem: Just after Peter graduates from the Police Academy, he goes home to Lois and draws his gun in the kitchen, which gets Lois very excited. Every time Peter fires his revolver, you'll hear a soft, but distinctive clink briefly after each shot. This clink comes from shell casings hitting the floor, which revolvers make impossible. Revolvers are designed to eject expended shell casings only while its user is reloading, not after each shot is fired. Only semiautomatic firearms immediately eject expended cartridges immediately after having been fired. Unless I'm mistaken, the entire gunshot sound originally came from a 9mm semiautomatic pistol.

Ready, Willing, and Disabled - S3-E15

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The age difference between Chris, Meg and Stewie keeps changing throughout the series. At the beginning of the series, Chris is 13, Meg is 15 and Stewie is 1 (he is after S1 E3 Chitty Chitty Death Bang). In series 4, Chris then goes to high school so he must be 14 by that time. It isn't referenced that Meg has aged between series 1 and series 5 until S5 E10 Peter's Two Dads where she turns 17, so she must have turned 16 during the past five seasons. Despite Meg having aged two years throughout the series, Chris remains having only aged one year since S4 (Age 14 referenced in S9 E13 Trading Places). Then in S10 E10 Meg & Quagmire, Meg then turns 18, and still Chris hasn't aged. Also, Stewie remains one year old after all of Chris and Meg's birthdays. If it were consistent, Meg would be now 18, Chris would now be 16 (not 14) and Stewie would now be 4 (not 1).

The Blind Side - S10-E11

Death Has a Shadow - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Peter and the gang are watching TV drinking beers, the TV doesn't have any cables on the back. So how has it got power or a TV signal? This mistake was later referenced in "Back to the Pilot." (00:04:16 - 00:00:00)

Baby Not On Board - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of this episode, Stewie is at home in the living room talking to Rupert about how depressed he is about being alone.

As soon as Stewie moves his head away from the window take notice that Rupert is no longer on the couch.

RLN

The Unkindest Cut - S16-E19

Plot hole: When Stewie and Brian are at the diner Stewie says he negotiated a deal with the mob by telling them he convinced Mort to give him his flash drive with the info to put the mobsters in prison. When they actually meet, Stewie tells the mob guys the flash drive is "his" and that he bought the coverage. Then he says his address is on the drive so they can mail it back to him. The mob guys didn't realise Stewie lied about whose flash drive it really was. (00:15:40 - 00:19:00)

Take My Wife - S13-E18

Factual error: When Carter puts on the Jack LaLanne record, you can see it has eight individual grooves (or rings) around it. However, records only have one continuous groove.
