Bottom's Up - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Richie and Eddie are on the roof and Richie starts his rain dance, watch the bottom of his trousers. To start of with he pulls the hem up to around his shins. He then starts and pulls his groin or something and stops and at this point the right hand trouser falls back down his leg. Then straight afterwards in the long shot you can see that it's back up again without him pulling it up.

Accident - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Eddie ties the string to Richie's leg and slams the door, watch the leg. The jeans actually rip and the fake leg comes out and you can even see the actor's real leg tied underneath. It's really obvious in slow motion.

Dough - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ritchie, Eddie, Spudgun and Dave Hedgehog enter the pub with the fake money and order drinks, Ritchie asks for Absinthe but is told that the pub doesn't have any and is given Pernod instead. Later, when the £5000 pub quiz poster is pointed out, Ritchie says he's had half a pint of Absinthe and can't see anything. Where did the Absinthe come from if the pub didn't have any earlier in the episode and they never left?

Apocalypse - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After the piano falls from the ceiling, Ritchie rumbles Eddie's "plan" and kicks him out of the flat. When Eddie is pushed out the front door and down the stairs you can see him falling to begin with, but halfway through he actually stops as if he's kneeling, then ducks out of shot. The sound effects lead us to believe that he's fallen all the way down the stairs and been attacked by a pack of dogs at the bottom.

Smells - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Ade Edmunson clamps the pliers onto Rik Mayall's nose, if you watch carefully you can see the pliers bend a couple of times, showing that they are made of rubber or something similar.

Holy - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: During a few scenes after Richie's finger has been taped back on at an extreme angle, you can see Rick Mayall's real finger bent underneath it. This is most visible after his finger gets slammed in the window: look carefully after the window is opened.

Continuity mistake: When Richie falls off the ladder, it's apparent from the way he falls that he lands on his front (you just see his leg pop into shot) and that his head would be pointing towards the camera. However, instantly in the next shot we see him on his back with his head towards the wall.

Culture - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Ritchie yells "Aah. Aah. Aah." after the table lands on his toes, the shot zooms out. When Eddie hits him again, he is able to move away from the table. But we never see the table moving the final distance downwards towards the floor (implying he's pulled his feet out from under it), meaning his toes were never under the table at that point, only in the short scene beforehand.

Terror - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: During a few of the "flaming fart" scenes, you can see a wire connected to the bottom of the actors. It's hard to see because it appears that it was attached to their legs in some way, but you can still see it when they move around a lot. The easiest place to see it is when the "devil" knocks on the door and they all fart and jump around, look carefully between/to the side of eddies legs for a black wire. It's not the dressing gown belt because that's tied around their waists.

Terror - S3-E2

Character mistake: Eddie, Spudgun and Dave Hedgehog all appear worried at the fact that the devil takes "virgin's blood." However, it is apparent later in the episode that the 'devil' is in fact Dave Hedgehog's daughter, meaning he isn't a virgin.
