The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

The Fresh Prince Project - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Will staples his Malcom X poster to the wall, the wall bends back and forth for a second or two.

Bang the Drum, Ashley - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Phil is telling Geoffrey about his day at work he takes an aspirin and drinks the water. The glass of water is almost gone. But if you look closely a couple of shots later the glass is full of water again.

72 Hours - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Will tells Vivian and Phil that Carlton is in Compton, Vivian takes off her earring from her right ear. A few shots of Will pass and when she goes to take off her other earring, the left ear doesn't have one, and the earring is on the right ear again.

Bang the Drum, Ashley - S1-E2

Plot hole: Ashley says she is 9; later in that season, in "Just Infatuation," Phil says she is almost 12. Will is 17 for the first two seasons, and 18 in season three. Nicky Banks grows from baby to preschooler between seasons four and five (though this was humorously addressed).

The Fresh Prince Project - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: During Will's first introduction to Uncle Phil the camera tilts slightly down to Will and Aunt Vivian on the couch and the boom mic drops into the frame briefly.

Season 1 generally

Visible crew/equipment: The stage lights are reflected on the vase in the family room. (The one with the pink flower design).
