Lost

Born to Run - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: When Kate burns Joanna's passport photo in the close-up the corner of the book burns up, yet in the wider shot the corner does not burn, and in the next shot another change, including the lighter. Later, when Sawyer holds up the passport, the burned page edge is just a bit singed. (00:10:30 - 00:29:00)

Numbers - S1-E18

Factual error: When Hurley is running through 'Sydney Airport', he runs past a sign that reads 'Kamehameha', which is the name of a Hawaiian king. This sign shouldn't be there if Hurley is in Sydney Airport.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: After Kate rescues Ray, she pulls out his prosthetic right arm. In the following shots, his upper body is deliberately shown and there is a blatantly apparent outline and very long wide bulge of the actor's right arm, under his shirt and overalls. (00:31:35)

A Tale of Two Cities - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: Season 3, episode 1, "A Tale of Two Cities.": In the scene where Ben/Henry is presenting a breakfast table to Kate, he mentions coffee which we can see is in a French press. Ben/Henry "finishes" the coffee by pushing down on the plunger of the french press, but uses only one finger with barely any pressure. In reality, a french press takes a significant amount of pressure to get the plunger from top to bottom, more than could be generated by just one finger. Additionally, we can see that the mesh-screen component of the French press stays at the top, rather than plunging down, which it should in order to filter out the grounds.

Fire + Water - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Charlie takes a step and breaks the virgin statue. Half a second later it's broken in a totally different way.

The 23rd Psalm - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Eko finds the "priest" on the ground, his white clerical collar is properly on. In "Duex Ex Machina" when Locke causes the skeleton of the Nigerian "priest" to fall from the tree, the collar comes undone, and the clergy shirt is rumpled.

The Beginning of the End - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Season 4 - The Beginning of the End - Hurley is swimming in the ocean. He sees Desmond return with the boat, and by the time he gets out of the ocean and walks over to Desmond and yells, "Where's Charlie?" his shirt is dry with sweat stains on it.

Season 4 generally

Continuity mistake: Ep. 4-12 "There's no place like home". In the first flashforward, the Oceanic representative talks to the survivors about meeting the press. As she finishes by saying, "See you on the ground", you can see baby Aaron on Kate's lap, and she is holding his left hand in hers down by his side. Cut to a close-up of Kate, and Aaron suddenly has both hands free and is holding them up to his mouth. (00:02:25)

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: After Sawyer jumps into the water to retrieve the rudder, Michael tosses him the rope then shouts, "Tie it around the rudder and we'll pull you in." Three shots later, in Sawyer's close-ups, mountains are visible at the right of the screen, whereas in the previous and following consecutive shots they are surrounded only by water at this point in time. (00:35:15)

One of Us - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Episode 3-16, "One of Us". When Juliette and Ben are talking towards the end, Ben is first seen with his hands folded (fingers interlocking) in front of him. Just after Juliette says "I'll admit to it, tell her it was the only way to gain her trust", Ben's hands are in the same position, but are not folded, his right hand is just lying on top of his left. Cut to a close-up of Ben, and his hands are once again folded.

Twotall

Dave - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When the doctor takes the polaroid picture of Hurley and Dave, there are others patients behind them, right in front a window. But at a further scene, when Hurley sees the photo 'without Dave', these other patients are missing too.

Jughead - S5-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Ellie is taking Daniel and the rest to Richard's camp, while they're walking through the jungle, there's a shot of Faraday and then another one of the floor as they walk. In this second shot the shadow of the cameraman, and the camera itself, is very visible.

Dr. James

? - S2-E21

Visible crew/equipment: As Locke and Eko descend down the hatch a safety cable can be seen supporting Locke.

Numbers - S1-E18

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kate and Sawyer begin their swim, Kate is not wearing a bracelet on either wrist, as she heads into the water. In a few following shots, including when Sawyer goes to "See what they got on em," Kate wears a bracelet on her right wrist, but when they head down to retrieve the case, the bracelet is gone as she pulls on the case. After Sawyer frees the case, in Kate's close-up the bracelet reappears, but now it's on her left wrist, yet when they reach the surface the bracelet's on her right wrist. Whew! (00:03:10)
