Buddha's Bowl - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Sydney and Nigel are talking with Robert Blaine at the beginning of the episode. When he mentions the Nepalese people there's a close-up on them. One student wearing a white T-shirt is walking up some steps - but in the next shot he is walking down other steps situated earlier in his path. A few seconds later, another flub with an extra; Nigel stops the museum curator just as an extra wearing white clothes enters the frame, but the person is gone in the sudden cut. (00:06:25)

Smoking Gun - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the prologue, Young Murray finds a man he does not know sitting at a table. He advances towards him in a wide shot of the room, and the man positions his left hand on the corner of the table, but in the following closer angle on him, his hands are close together exactly like in the initial shot by the same angle. It's like the middle one never happened. (00:03:10)

The Headless Nun - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Nigel accidentally (unconvincingly so) steps on the Beautiful Nun 's bathrobe in a close-up. His toothbrush hand is down his hip, in frame, but when they both gasp in a reaction shot, the toothbrush is between them. (00:17:30)

The Headless Nun - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Nigel wonders why prisoners write on walls. He moves the flashlight from the left hand to his right. When he walks back and the shot changes though, instantly it is back in his left. (00:22:10)

The Headless Nun - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Sydney Fox retrieves the parchment with the map, she holds it differently (probably turned 180°) between the close-up and the reverse shots. It also should be noted that the world-class archaeologist just casually dumps on the floor like a piece of garbage a ornate XVI century flask. (00:23:50)

The Headless Nun - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Sydney talks her inexperienced assistance into a reckless climb, Nigel is leaning against he truck in the close-up, when he was not in the rest of the chat. (00:30:25)

The Book of Love - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Just after Sydney gets the book snatched from her by the guy in car, her hands stay near her body and don't move, but in the next shot her hands are thrown out to the side to add a surprised effect.

The Book of Love - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Sydney has the "Book of Love" from the limo she starts to read it. In one shot she holds the book firmly with her hands wrapped around it. But when the motorcyclist grabs it she is holding the bottom of the book in the tip of her fingers [To aid the stunt].

Affaire de Coeur - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Sydney is reminiscing about her Peruvian fling; in the foreground her client is taking a sip of wine, and the glass is about half empty. It is already much fuller in the next shot. (00:09:20)

Affaire de Coeur - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Curled up in the bunk bed, Nigel apologizes for the plot contrivance hit to Sydney's noggin. He is clutching the book, with his hands in obviously different spots between the two shots. (00:10:55)
