Two Thirty - S4-E24

Plot hole: In this episode Arthur scams Deacon and several other parents for phony piano lessons because he doesn't actually know how to play the piano. However, earlier in the series (Art House episode, S1 - E24) we learn that Arthur can play the piano when he temporarily moves out and after his house warming party Doug says to Carrie, "Who knew Arthur could play the piano like that?"

The Minister

Soft Touch - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: During the intro to this episode Carrie is trying to park the car. However you can see from the top angle that it's actually Doug driving, not Carrie, during the last attempt when the car finally makes it into the spot. (00:01:05)

The Minister

Dougie Houser - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: In this flashback episode, when Doug is shaving his moustache and talking to Deacon by his locker at IPS, Danny Hefferman's name can be seen on a locker. At this time Danny was not working at IPS.

Restaurant Row - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Arthur is on the phone with PBS to complain about getting a "Civil War Series" box set, the actual set of tapes changes drastically. When it's on the table and when Carrie brings it over to the counter its a pretty large, has an American flag motif, and says "Civil War" across the top. When it cuts back to it sitting on the counter its a much smaller box with a plain design and says "The Great War" along the bottom. It's obviously a different set, not just the camera angle. (00:14:40)

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the guys are watching the game in Doug's bedroom, we see a shot of the TV. If you look closely you can see in the reflection that no-one is on the bed. (00:13:00)

Queasy Rider - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Arthur starts telling Doug about when he had a bike, you can see the tv gets switched off. However neither Doug or Arthur turn it off as both of their hands are in screen and the remote is on the table. (00:14:30)

King Pong - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: In the final scene, Carrie starts to kiss Doug and pushes him onto the bed. The camera angle switches from what would be outside the window to beside the bed. The scene was done in one take from 3 camera angles. As the camera pans left you can see the center window is completely open because they had just pulled the camera out of it and didn't get it closed yet, and you can watch the window be closed by an invisible hand from underneath. (00:28:00)


Show generally

Other mistake: In outside shots the front door is on the extreme right. Shots from inside the house show the living room on the left and the door in a central position.

Tricker Treat - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: When Doug and Deacon are driving round trying to find Gabe's Pizzeria, they get into the car and pull out into the road. However if you look at the traffic, they would have hit at least 2 cars in doing so. But they don't, showing it's a projection. (00:14:40)

Pour Judgment - S7-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Doug is working at Cooper's, and goes to get the ladies beer nuts, the camera pans to the left, and a 2nd camera (which is used on the following shot of Doug) is visible on the left side of the screen.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the pilot episode, we see out of Doug's bedroom window and there is a very sizable gap from their window to the next house. However in later episodes, it's only a couple of feet to the next house.
