Pilot (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: On the airplane, when Kate lifts the glass of juice with her handcuffed hands, in this close-up the cuff round her right wrist has the single bar facing out. However, when the turbulence hits, in another close-up of her hands, the same cuff is on the opposite way, it now has the double bar facing out. (00:31:10)

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Jack removes the paper with Kate's mugshot from the marshal's jacket pocket, in the close-up of the paper there is no writing at the top center of the paper, only at the sides. However, in the previous shot the center writing is visible from behind, and is also perfectly seen when Hurley finds the paper.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Charlie, Kate and Jack are in the nose wreckage, to find the transceiver, there is a shot in first class, facing the cockpit, showing the glass wall with the decorative circular design. When Charlie is aboard the flight, running from the stewards, he stands beside that glass wall, and the circular pattern is reversed. Neither shot is flipped.

Some Like It Hoth - S5-E14

Factual error: In the classroom where Jack argues with Roger next to the chalkboard we can see a poster of the periodic table of the elements. We can see some elements that wouldn't be there in 1977 since they weren't discovered until 1999.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jack drops to his knees, after removing the undershirt, one white shirt lies stretched out horizontally on the ground directly in front of him, with both knees centered in front of it; the other shirt is off to his right (viewer's left), with the undershirt he drops. Three shots later, still on his knees, all three shirts lie rumpled to his right; eleven shots later, the single white shirt once again lies horizontally directly in front of him, in the very same position as the earlier shot.

The Glass Ballerina - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Season 3, episode 2, "The Glass Ballerina". When Jin is in the hotel and is about to kill Jae Lee, he holds a pillow to Lee's head and presses his gun against it. At first, the gun is pointing to Lee's cheekbone, but when it cuts to Lee as he is sobbing "I'm sorry. I'm sorry", the gun is much lower, and pointing to his throat. Cut back to Jin, and you can see the gun is once again pointing to Lee's face. There was no time for Jin to move it between shots, and Lee did not move nearly enough to cause this changes.

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kate and Sawyer happen upon the lovely waterfall, Sawyer removes his shirt and he has the bandage tied round the stab wound on his upper arm. When underwater, there is a different dressing on his arm; it is snugger, with no ends - most likely an elastic type to stay put during the underwater shots. (00:02:50 - 00:04:15)

Lighthouse - S6-E5

Revealing mistake: 6-05 - The lighthouse: While Sawyer and Locke are climbing down the ladder, Sawyer's stunt is noticeable because his shirt's colour is different, his hair is darker, and the sweat stains on his shirt disappear.

He's Our You - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In episode 10 Sayid shoots young Ben Linus in the chest, upper left part, just above his heart. It can be seen where the bullet enters the body. In episode 11 when Jin finds the boy and roll him over, the wound and blood is on the right side while the left is clean.

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode where the doctor tries to save the woman who is drowning, when he enters the water for the second time just as he says "there's someone else out there", you can easily see the keel water of the boat or Jet Ski that is filming him. (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: After Jack gets Hurley and Claire away from the wing falling down, they are all lying on the ground. As Jack says "Stay with her" to Hurley, Hurley has a big lump of hair on his forehead that disappears and reappears between the shots. (00:07:00)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: The white tape round Charlie's fingers, that first read "fate" and later "late", drastically change their appearance - such as the size and shape of the letters, and the color and condition of the tape, in numerous consecutive shots.
