Lost

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: With Marshal Mars in pursuit, as Ray drives his pickup, he holds the steering wheel with his left hand, and his stiff prosthetic right arm is down at his side. When Kate grabs for the steering wheel, in the side exterior shot the stunt driver is quite noticeable, as he grips and turns the steering wheel with his good right hand/arm.

The Other 48 Days - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: When Goodwin and Ana Lucia sits down to have a break and Goodwin hands over some fruit to Ana, she says "Where do you think they got it? I mean they're not even wearing shoes", directing to the knife. If you watch in the background you can see a car driving.

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.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Kate pulls Ray from the burning pickup, he has bloody bruises at the center and right side of his forehead. As she drags him across the grass, in the shot when she grunts, the bruises on his forehead are at the center and left side of his forehead. This shot is flipped.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: On their way back to the hatch with the dynamite, Kate, Jack and Hurley run from the "monster" but Locke runs toward it. When he lands on his back the shot cuts away to the "Lost" logo floating onscreen. When it cuts back to Locke, in this shot the bruise is over his right eye, instead of his left. The shot is flipped.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Kate is with Ray in his pickup, he wears his wedding band on his left hand, and his right arm is prosthetic. After the wreck, when Kate pulls him from the cab and onto the grass, he wears his ring on his right hand, the door and Kate's bracelet are also on the wrong side - obviously a flipped shot.

Homecoming - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: The face of "Ethan" that Jack tackles is seen briefly, but it is obviously a stuntman, not William Mapother.

00:32:45

Confidence Man - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: After Sayid stabs Sawyer, in the wideshot when Jack pushes Sayid away, as Sawyer lies with his right arm outstretched the knife is nowhere to be seen. In the next close-up, the large, long-handled knife is protruding from Sawyer's upper arm at about a 90ยบ angle. Given the angle and position of the knife, it should have been seen in the previous shot.

Live Together, Die Alone, Part 2 - S2-E24

Revealing mistake: After Sawyer has been shot with the syringe thing (I'm not sure if Kate had been shot yet) Jack fires his gun five or six times into the jungle. The last few times he fires it there is no flash or any indication that the gun has been fired.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: When Jack hangs onto Locke, after Kate throws the dynamite into the hole, in Locke's next close-up, the wound on his forehead (grazed from Shannon's bullet) is on his right, whereas it's normally on his left. The shot is flipped.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: Locke is chased and grabbed by the "monster," and is subsequently pulled through the jungle on his stomach. Just after Jack jumps and grabs him, Terry O'Quinn's right pant leg comes up and his black shin pad is clearly visible, as he is being dragged.

Hearts and Minds - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: In Boone's flashback in the hotel, you can see the Sydney Opera House out the window which looks nice, except that in order to see the it from that perspective the hotel would need to be EXACTLY where the Harbour Bridge is, but there are no hotels in Sydney that could provide this angle of view.

00:36:00

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Jack and Kate run from the bees, they enter the cave, and when they remove their tee shirts Jack's back and sides are perfectly visible. There is not even the slightest hint of any kind of scar, on the left side of Jack's back, from the nasty cut that Kate recently sewed up with the black thread.

Abandoned - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: As several camera angles show, Sawyer's makeshift stretcher was made by drilling multiple holes in the upper frame struts, through which was threaded rope made from dried roots or vines. The cast who supposedly constructed it were not carrying power drills among their primitive implements.

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: When Shannon carries and drags the luggage (some of Boone's) she breaks down and Sayid speaks to her. When he says, "It won't be too much if I carry it for you," he strokes her cheek with his left hand - note the watch. After he says, "I have a hike to lead," in the next wideshot he's still holding her face with his "left" hand. But, note the lack of watch, and her large suitcase is now backwards. They flipped the shot so his right hand would appear to be his left, to keep hand continuity, but it doesn't work.

Eggtown - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: Episode 4-4 "Eggtown": When Locke is in the basement hallway, he slams Ben's breakfast tray against the wall. The wall moves like it's thin plywood. Odd since basements are either thick wood or concrete over packed earth.

Grumpy Scot

The Long Con - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When Jack asks Locke for the vault combination he yells "Jack" (his own name) instead of "John".

00:01:55

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Kate is in Ray's pickup, as they drive down the road, she looks into her side view mirror twice, over a minute apart. Firstly, the road that passes in the view reflected in the mirror is perfectly identical in both instances that Kate looks at it, which is impossible - the same shot is used twice. Secondly, the road that passes Ray's truck is completely different to the road that passes in the view reflected in the side mirror, they are obviously edited together.

Dave - S2-E18

Revealing mistake: In Season 2, Episode 18 - Dave: When Ana Lucia is threatening "Henry Gale" in the hatch cell; every time he moves and his makeshift shirt slips, you can see a line on his right upper arm where they applied make-up. Apparently he's wearing makeup on all the exposed parts of his face and neck to make him look sunburned, exposed to the elements etc. This is not just a normal suntan line, as his shirt wouldn't normally fall down that much out in the open and he's been inside for days now.

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: Sun's left earlobe has a cleft, but while Jin is still cuffed to the wreckage, Sun watches Michael head off through the trees (to cut firewood) and in this close-up it is Sun's right earlobe with the cleft. The shot is flipped.

One of Them - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: When Sayid and Locke are talking to Henry Gale in the hatch, just as Jack comes in and finds them, the front part of the arrow supposedly piercing Gale's shoulder is at a different angle to the back part. This is visible in a number of shots.

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.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Sayid, Kate, Sawyer and the others make camp for the night, on their way back from hearing the French woman's transmission, they sit around the fire talking. Sawyer has a cut over his right eye, but in every other close-up of Sawyer the cut is over his left eye. The shots are flipped.

Do No Harm - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: Jack's left arm is bandaged from Boone's blood transfusion. After the shot of Shannon, as she cries over Boone, Jack sits on the beach in the wideshot and the bandage is on his right arm, but in the following shots it's on his left. Yet another flipped shot.

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: After Jack brings some survivors back to the cave, there is a shot of Hurley turning on his CD player to listen to Willie Nelson. In the next shot of Jack, as he fills bottles with water, his large tattoo is on his right upper arm, but normally it is on his left. The shot is flipped.

00:39:40

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.

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.

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: After Charlie receives a large gash on his forehead, from Danielle's trap, Sayid tries to seal it. When Sayid pours gunpowder in the cut, he leaves a large thick trail beside Charlie's eye and on his cheek, which he does not wipe away. There is a tight close-up of Sayid igniting the gunpowder with the flame. The gunpowder beside his eye and on his cheek should have seared his skin, but it does not. The only severe wound Charlie has later is the closed charred wound on his forehead, and though he does wipe his face back at the cave, the skin on his cheek and beside his eye are fine.

The End (1) - S6-E17

Revealing mistake: When Desmond moves the rock, Smoke-Locke and Jack fight outside the cave while an earthquake shatters everything. Watch the leaves around and you'll notice that they don't move at all, giving away the camera effect. This also happens later on when Hugo, Ben and Jack are about to fix the cave of light.

Exodus (1) - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: In the scene just after Sawyer is mounting the radar on the mast of the shop, Sayid hands Michael a flare gun. He opens it to show that there is just 1 shot left. If you look closely the flare gun shell has already been fired (notice the center fire pin is indented).

00:34:30

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Charlie is stood on the bee hive, all the bees are clearly CGI.

Quotes

Benjamin Linus: Your flight crashed on September 22,2004. Today is November 29th. That means you've been on this island for sixty-nine days. And yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that during those sixty-nine days, your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away, Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
[Jack begins to laugh.]
Benjamin Linus: What?
Jack Shepard: [Still laughing.] If you wanted me to believe that, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
Bejmain Linus: No, they were down 3-0 against the Yankees in the Championship Series and then won eight straight.
Jack Shepard: [Skeptically.] Sure, sure. Of course they did.
[Ben turns on a VCR.]
Joe Buck: Back to Foulke... Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are world champions! A clean sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Red Sox celebrate in the middle of the diamond here at Busch Stadium.
