Bones

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The person responsible for background shots while anyone is in a car driving, is grossly negligent in their continuity. Very rarely do Bones & Booth drive down a street without the background changing rapidly from urban to rural streets, and back. In a Season 1 episode, they're driving through a flat desert, with nothing in the background except scrub - and then suddenly, a mountain appears in the middle of the shot.

Revealing mistake: The producers have not taken enough generic shots of the places the gang hangs out at; the Royal Diner, & the Founding Fathers. If paying attention (or, watching multiple episodes in a row), one will notice the same people wandering down the street an awful lot! As well, outside the Royal Diner, there's a weird-shaped street corner, that appears to force all traffic in front of the Diner. This would be due to the size of backlot being limited, and certainly doesn't look right.

Suggested correction: It can't be considered a mistake if the same people are seen frequently or traffic passes by the diner. The show takes place over 12 years. People will often walk past the same places.

Trivia: When Max and Temperence go out to lunch with Temperence's cousin Margaret, Max comments that the pair are "practically sisters," and later when Margaret meets Booth, Booth asks if she is Bones' sister. The actress playing Margaret is actually Emily Deschanel's sister, Zooey.
