Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 7 "Dr. Linus": When Ben writes 'ELBA' on the blackboard, he underlines it with a curved line, but as he walks to the back of the classroom in the next shot, you can see over his shoulder that the line is now straight. The handwriting of the letters has also changed noticeably.
Continuity mistake: When Sawyer helps push the minivan, there are small holes on his tee shirt's collar and a large hole on the seam of his left sleeve. When he walks back into camp with the beer, the large hole is now on his right sleeve, and the left is intact. Neither are flipped shots.

Other mistake: Ethan kills one of the survivors. Sawyer thinks it's Steve but Hurley corrects him and tells him that it was actually Scott. They make a point of Scott being the deceased and Steve being the one people mix him up with. According to the actors playing Scott and Steve it was in fact Steve who got killed but the producers messed it up.
Continuity mistake: When Jack hangs off the cliff, he grips a vine covered in a multitude of leaves in the wideshots, but in the three tight close-ups his hand is dramatically shown slipping down a vine, without any leaves on or around it. He also remains at the same height position the entire time.
Continuity mistake: When Jack, Hurley and Charlie discuss water situation, the suitcase filled with water bottles repeatedly changes. One example: when Charlie carries the stuffed suitcase, then sets it down, it is open just a couple of inches, but when Jack walks away the suitcase is bursting with bottles, and is open at least 18-20 inches.
Continuity mistake: After telling Danielle what is written on the back of Nadia's photo, Sayid steps closer to Danielle. When Sayid says, "The only way off this place..." in the shot facing him Danielle holds the gun up high and points it straight at Sayid's chest. Yet, in both the previous and following shots facing Danielle, the gun is pointing down towards Sayid's legs. She then lowers the gun and sits down.
Other mistake: In the series 3 episode "Flashes before your eyes", several scenes purport to take place in England. However, the poster for the Royal Scots Guards which Desmond looks at as he passes the Army recruitment office has the American spelling for "honour".
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Sun surprisingly sees Michael running out from the jungle, Sun turns and faces Michael, who is on her right. In the close-up shot followed Sun is found facing to her left. It then changes back to normal in the next shot.
Factual error: The version of Brixton underground station is very lazily reproduced: the 'U' and 'D' of the 'UNDERGROUND' roundel have been the same size as the rest of the word since before Brixton station was built; the white circle is not part of the roundel; the station appears to be accessed through a plate-glass window; there is no reason for a black cab to be parked at the side of the road; also, the cars are all parked along the right-hand side of the road, which they would never be in the UK.
Continuity mistake: When Walt notices the pillar of black smoke, in the overhead shot everyone gathers well behind the raft, including Claire, who was just sitting in front of the bushes in the previous shot. However, in the next shot, all the survivors are now gathered at the side of the raft.
Continuity mistake: In the garage, when Haddad tells Essam and Sayid to stay relaxed and focused, his collared shirt is on properly, but in the next shot, as he says, "Drive with the windows down," the shirt is off his right shoulder. This happens again when Essam takes the gun.
