Revealing mistake: As we know, the watery image of the event horizon is projected onto a blue backdrop. In "Origin" the third episode of season nine, Ger'ak comes through the Stargate and we can see the image of the event horizon, though faint, around and above the Stargate itself and is not confined to normal area for the event horizon. Blatantly visible if you look for it on the airing of the episode on the Sci-Fi network.

Factual error: Before SG-1 switched to P90 PDW's, they carried MP5 submachine guns. They were often shown with a full magazine taped upside down to the one in the weapon, so that to reload, all they have to do is remove the magazine, turn it over and insert the full one. Team members were also shown doing just that in several fight scenes. Problem is, real special ops troops are specifically taught in training never to do this. It's far too easy to damage the lips on the spare magazine, rendering it useless. There are clips that will hold magazines upright side by side, but its easy to see on screen they weren't using them.

Plot hole: Anytime an SG member starts acting weird or something happens that is "impossible", SGC personnel always act skeptical about it. Considering what they have seen in the course of the show, "that's impossible" should have long ago fallen out of their vocabulary. And while I realize that Sam and Daniel are scientists, they have seen enough examples of incredibly advanced technology that they should be far more open-minded when looking for explanations.

Other mistake: Several times, especially in the first season, there is an IDC confirmation on the SGC computer even before the wormhole has been established.
