Flood - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Jerzei is coming through the door with an axe, you can see the door is paper thin to make it easier to get through. In fact you can see Alexei Sayle being very careful to only chip small bits away because a decent whack with the axe would smash the whole thing down.

Boring - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Vyvyan is trying to show off his finger trick there are two mistakes, 1) the fingers are bent the other way (this shows that the hand is fake), 2) when he cuts off the wrong finger there is blood shooting out but you can see the tube of blood right near his wrist.

Visible crew/equipment: When the seriously injured chip is voicing her last words to the carrot, the wire moving her is painfully obvious coming in from the bottom right of the screen. Immediately after that we zoom in on the carrot and can easily see the wire moving it too.

Bomb - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: The guys turn on the TV and discover the channels don't work. When Rik changes the channels, he leans in front of the TV hiding the screen. This is because the 'channel' never changes at all - it's just a picture stuck onto the TV. You can see this when the camera rotates around, just before the screen goes out of view, behind Rik.

Revealing mistake: When Rik Mayall is in the middle of the doorway dancing to the Human League record, you can see him abruptly change his dance steps and deliberately move across to his left (our right) to give the two Police officers room to get past him to destroy the record player. He had his back to the front door the whole time and wouldn't have been able to see them come in.

Visible crew/equipment: When Rick talks to the Christian woman, there is one shot showing the stairs behind her. In the upper right corner of the screen you can see someone's legs as he walks out of sight. None of the characters should be there at that precise moment.

Bomb - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When Neil is about to blow up the kettle, watch as he plugs it in. The power point moves a bit.

Demolition - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rik is watching 'Nozin' Aroun'' on TV, he dislikes the program and smashed the TV with his foot. You can still briefly see the image of the show on the TV, even though the TV is smashed. This means the effects people didn't take the image off the green screen quick enough. Also, a few seconds later when Rik is talking to Mike, there are spikes of the screen remaining around the edge of the TV. However, they are green - the remains of the green screen.

Continuity mistake: Vyv has a beer when he enters the 'party', but when he starts doing exercises in a vain attempt to impress the girls, it's gone. He had no time to throw it away.
