The Dead Zone

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 5, episode 2 "Independence day" : At the beginning of sitting in a traffic jam, Johnny and Bruce unlock their seatbelts. During their waiting Bruce's seatbelt is suddenly back locked, then unlocked again. (00:07:20)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 4 Episode 12, "A Very Dead Zone Christmas": In the beginning, Johnny takes the keys of the old man, having a vision of a young man being chased by cops in old uniforms. Johnny's hands switch from bare to wearing gloves two times. (00:09:40)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 5, episode 4, "Articles of faith": When Johnny touches the arm of the suspect through the jail bars to get a vision, the man stands right before him. But when the vision starts, Johnny's arm is suddenly stretched out widely. It doesn't match. (00:32:50)

Dinner with Dana - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Dana and Johnny are drinking wine, the amount in the glasses change between shots. Also whenever they pretend to drink, if you watch closely the liquid in the glasses doesn't even so much as touch their lips when they drink.

Plague - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, the health inspector and the men in bio-suits return to the school, there are four men in bio-suits. The inspector gives three of them orders on where to search for clues and the fourth one seems to have magically vanished.

The Hunt - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Why does Johnny have trouble getting into the booby trapped room? He shouldn't, as it was made clear in the previous episodes that he can freely explore the scenes in his visions and see things the person or object touched did not. Why is he suddenly limited in this episode and never once previously, and never again in the series?

Cold Hard Truth - S3-E4

Factual error: When Johnny and Bruce are riding in the truck, listening to the 'shock jock', Bruce turns off the radio by turning the volume control on the left side of the radio. Johnny says he wants to hear it and turns the radio back on by turning the knob on the right, which is the tuning dial.

Chosen answer: Unreasonable Doubt aired as the fifth episode, on July 14 2002, with Netherworld airing as the eighth episode on August 4th. One possible explanation is that the networks are sometimes known to air episodes out of their actual production order. In cases like this, the DVD release usually uses the production order, thus placing the episodes in the order which they were intended to be watched.
