Forever Knight

Spin Doctor - S1-E15

Factual error: Nick tells Nat about his past life as an assistant professor in the U.S., and refers to himself as "a certain indigenous vampire." Nick wasn't indigenous (native) to either the US or Canada, where the show was set. He came from Brabant, now part of Belgium. They were probably trying for "itinerant" (wandering), which would accurately describe Nick's long life.

Amateur Night - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: It's 9:10 a.m. outside the police precinct station, and after a 4-minute interview scene with no time lapses, it's 2:55 p.m. inside. (00:21:50 - 00:25:10)

Jean G

For I Have Sinned - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: While he's in the confessional, Schanke's raincoat collar is turned up. When he rushes out to confront Nick, it's folded neatly down again. (00:37:40)

Jean G

Show generally

Factual error: The Cadillacs (all three of them) used throughout the series to play the part of Nick's sea-green, large-trunk vampire transportation were not, as claimed in the show, 1962 models. Nick's car, in all its incarnations, was actually a '61.

Dark Knight (1) - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Natalie shows Nick the murdered museum guard's bite wounds in the morgue, the "dead" man's carotid artery is pulsing quite healthily. (00:08:30)

Jean G

I Will Repay - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Elizabeth the leper is wearing a dirty gray dress under her black cloak - until Nick makes her a vampire, when suddenly there's a beautiful, spotlessly clean white gown under her cloak. (00:09:30 - 00:26:30)

Jean G

Last Act - S1-E5

Factual error: Vampire Erica commits suicide by sitting on a park bench at sunrise. Nick and Schanke are called to the scene only a short time later, or so we're led to believe, yet it's still fully dark when they arrive. No sunrise in sight. (00:01:00 - 00:05:30)

Jean G

A More Permanent Hell - S2-E20

Factual error: In the first scene, Dr. Dana says the asteroid heading for Earth is 5 miles wide, "larger than the one that caused the dinosaur extinction." The asteroid that did in the dinos is estimated by most scientists to have been 6-8 miles wide. (00:03:00)

Jean G

Only the Lonely - S1-E17

Factual error: In the flashback, when Nick regenerates on the autopsy table, his shredded clothes repair themselves, too. Maybe Nick buys his outfits in the same place the Incredible Hulk does.

Jean G

Black Buddha (1) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Nick and Tracy find a crying but uninjured baby, the only mortal survivor of the plane crash, in the wreckage. Yet in part 2, Nick tells Urs that Vachon was the only survivor. (00:10:45)

Jean G

Black Buddha (1) - S3-E1

Factual error: When the Inca is threatening Tracy in Spanish, the translation subtitles read, "He thinks he has invaded me." They were supposed to say, "_evaded_ me." (Note: This has been corrected in the dvd set released 10/06.) (00:41:00)

Jean G

Black Buddha (2) - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When he's rescuing Tracy at the end, Vachon bites Vudu. But when Nick arrives and props up the dying man, there are no marks and no blood on his neck. (00:39:45)

Jean G

Dying for Fame - S1-E16

Plot hole: Nick calls Schanke and asks him to take the Polaroids in to a lab for analysis. But Nick seems to have forgotten that he has the photos with him. They're not back at the precinct station for Schanke to take them in. (00:30:25)

Jean G

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Plot hole: Nick has spent two seasons with the supernatural ability to see perfectly well in the dark. But here, exploring the haunted house alone, he suddenly needs a big neon-blue-beamed flashlight to see where he's going. (00:31:30)

Jean G

Undue Process - S2-E8

Factual error: Nat's god-daughter Cynthia Luce is buried within a few days of her murder with an elaborate headstone already in place. (In reality, headstones take months to produce.) But the wrong name is carved on the stone. It reads "In memory of Cynthia Lambert." (00:43:30)

Jean G

Hunted - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: It wasn't supposed to be in shot, but the camera accidentally caught the stuffed caterpillar toy perched on Nat's desk in the coroner's lab. It was there because nursing mom Catherine Disher had her new baby nearby on set. Fans wondered, though, why the single, childless Nat would keep baby toys in the morgue. (00:17:20)

Jean G

Beyond the Law - S2-E13

Plot hole: At the end, Nick and Schanke discuss the bruise Nick's blow supposedly left on Damir's jaw. But Nick didn't hit Damir. He grabbed and tossed him bodily into a trash heap in the alley - without ever once touching his jaw. (00:41:50)

Jean G

The Fix - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Although they never reverse their direction, when Nick and Schanke are walking down the Toronto city street, they pass the same bright yellow discount store sign twice.

Jean G

Night in Question - S3-E10

Factual error: LaCroix visits the comatose Nick in the hospital and detaches a pulse monitor that A) shouldn't be beeping, seeing as it's attached to a vampire, and B) should have immediately sounded an alarm when it was removed. (00:08:30)

Jean G

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Plot hole: The handyman tells the police that he has turned on the power to restore lights in the house. Why, then, is everyone still crawling through the place with flashlights?

Jean G

Tracy: Now that I've expressly told you I don't need your help... I need your help.

Curiouser & Curiouser - S2-E22

Trivia: All the sets in the dream sequence, particularly Nick's loft, are filled with props referencing Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland books. They include white rabbits, flamingos, walruses, a squeaky-toy caterpillar - even a half-eaten piece of cake in Nick's fridge. The episode also has several background extras in Wonderland-style costumes, and numerous other references to the books, such as Nick literally falling through the looking glass at the end.
