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.
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.
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.
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.
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 90º angle. Given the angle and position of the knife, it should have been seen in the previous shot.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
