Arrested Development

Mr. F - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When the family is meeting in the Board Room at the office, a boom mic is visible for a few seconds then is pulled out of camera view.

Japan-Games

Correction: This is an intentional part of the joke. It is just after they say there "may be a listening device in the room."

Show generally

Corrected entry: In season 3 episode 5, when everyone is in the conference room talking about who might been a spy there is a boom mic visible at the top of the screen.

Lemmiwinks

Correction: Completely intentional as part of the joke. The conversation in the boardroom includes a discussion about whether or not the room is bugged and if people could be listening, at which point there is silence and a boom mic is seen in shot. It is not a mistake within the show due to the documentary-esque fashion it is filmed in, which occasionally leads to jokes about such elements as camera crews and the self-aware narrating style.

Correction: There is no continuity error. The bowl of fruit only ever appears on the kitchen island. The bowl of nuts is on the breakfast bar.

Correction: It's well established that Steve Holt isn't very smart.

Correction: He never places the banana on the counter. He does place it in a paper used to serve to a customer so he can hold it by the banana. This is to support the weight while he finishes working on it.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the roof of the model home, George Michael hugs Lindsay while packing his belongings. In the shot where we see Michael watching them, they are standing apart, but in the following shot they are hugging again. (00:18:20)

Good Grief! - S2-E4

Tobias Funke: Michael, you should really try to find a way to release your feelings. Otherwise, they could come out at an inopportune time.
[Tobias looks into the refrigerator.]
Tobias Funke: Where the fuck are my hard-boiled eggs?!
