The A-Team mistake picture

Labor Pains - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the beginning during the bridge jump scene, the A-Team van changes. It suddenly has round headlights, its hub caps can be seen popping off when it lands, and it doesn't have any spotlights. The real van has double square shaped headlights, steel spoked rims, and spotlights. (00:05:20)

Mister Ed

Waste 'Em! - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: As the team track the disposal truck, the stop in the shadows out in the country. As they take off to go to the city hall, they leave from beside the same building they left to trail the truck, rather than the country scene.

Movie Nut

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the A-Team drops watermelons on the pickup truck, the windshield shatters. The next shot after this, the truck flips over, but the windshield is intact.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: John "Hannibal" Smith's rank changes from to Colonel to Lieutenant Colonel in different shows. In some of the early episodes we see him in uniform as Lt. Col. but in later episodes such as when they are on trial, Smith is wearing the rank of Full Colonel.

Mister Ed

Mexican Slayride (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the team is escaping with Al, BA swipes a truck. After loading everyone in, he puts a pin in to hold the gate on the driver's side. When they meet up with Face & Murdock at the helicopter, Hannibal jumps out, pulls one pin from the passenger's side, and the gate swings down.

Breakout! - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: Just as Murdock gets to the point of jamming the brakes to stop the van, the chase scene is outside. If you look just to Murdock's left in the closeups, you can see a corrugated metal wall that isn't moving, with only the van bouncing a bit.

Movie Nut

Beneath the Surface - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: As Murdock stands on the deck to dive in the water, he has two bottles of pressurized air on his back. The next shot shows him under water, with only one bottle on the back. The rest of the scene shows him once again with two bottles of air. (00:34:00)

A-Team LTKP

Bounty - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: As the goons are trying to get the van to stop, it changes from a Ford van to a Dodge with a messed up bumper, and back to the Ford between shots, and the bumpers don't show any damage.

Cup A' Joe - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: After Hannibal jumps from the semi and the trailer explodes, the tractor stops about 45° to the left. Later, they come back to the rig, and it now sits straight, and there is no scorched grass, or signs of any kind of explosion.
