The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Episode 4 - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Before Zaphod, Arthur, Ford and Trillian enter the lift after talking to the mice, Trillian wears a dull red suit which hasn't been done up much. However when they leave the lift Trillian's suit is shiny and is considerably more done up. Her suit stays like this until in Episode 5 after the book explains Milliways when it suddenly changes back.

Correction: She is wearing a shiney red jacket over the top of her spandex. As they land on the planet and are walking to the airlock on the ship, you can see her carrying it.

Episode 3 - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: At the point where someone gets a small bruise on the upper arm, the crew are all in a pile and thrashing about on the floor. There are 5 pairs of legs instead of 4. Arthur is in his pajamas, Zaphod is in orange trousers, Trillion is lying on top of Ford and Ford is too far away for them to be his legs. [The fifth pair of legs belong to the person playing zaphod's third arm - doesn't mean it's not a mistake, but that's where they come from.]

Slartibartfast: I'd much rather be happy than right, any day.
Arthur Dent: And are you?
Slartibartfast: No. That's where it all breaks down, of course.
