Thunderbirds

Edge of Impact - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When The Hood drives his van off the broken bridge whilst escaping the police, watch carefully; the van bounces off the rocks on the other side and starts to fall roof-first into the river below. However, when it cuts to the van falling into the water it falls in upright. (00:42:00)

Edge of Impact - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Before Jeff pushes the button on his desk to activate Operation Cover-Up, you can see there is a dark blue line around the edge of his sleeve, but in a close-up of him pushing the button, the line has disappeared. It reappears in the very next shot.

Edge of Impact - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When the hood parks his car to watch the first Red Arrow crash, there is a white and pink car parked beside him. When he leaves, the white car is still there, but has changed parking lanes and the pink car is replaced with a red car.

Path of Destruction - S2-E2

Plot hole: In order to build up suspense, Virgil and Brains stand on the Crab Logger as its dangerous fuel is pumped out, despite the fact that it is hanging on the edge of a precipice. In fact they could have left as soon as they had plumbed in the pipes to empty the fuel tanks - the whole procedure is controlled by Scott in Thunderbird 1 and they make absolutely no contribution to the operation at all. They do not need to disconnect the pipes; they are left behind and dropped from Thunderbird 1 as planned. They just stand there chatting about how much danger they are in until jumping clear at the very last second. Silly buggers.
