Revealing mistake: In the episode where Scofield, Sucre and T-Bag are driving in Panama, the trees in the background have no leaves - like Autumn/Winter in the US. And even though there of course are trees in Panama which shed their leaves, there is no time of year when all trees are leafless - like in the temperate zones. That shot was definitely not filmed in Panama.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: Series 2 - Episode 10. When Sara is to meet Michael at 1681 Butterfield Road Sara looks in the mailbox. She closes the lid, yet the mailbox is seen standing with the lid a bit open. In the next couple of shots the mailbox is completely open, and when they jump in the car and leave, the lid is now closed.Jacob La Cour
Continuity mistake: Episode 14 - John Doe. Bellick is in the prison, and is being threatened by 'Banks.' As Banks and his crew walk away, in two different shots, you can see an elderly gentlemen (looking like Charles Westmoreland) walk across the screen, left to right. He does this twice, without there being time for him to run around.
Continuity mistake: In Season 2: Episode 9-"Unearthed" when Bellick is talking to T-Bag in the house, he pulls up a chair to sit down in front of T-Bag. When he pulls the chair out and starts to sit down, the chair is backwards, but in the next shot it's facing T-Bag. (00:38:10)drummerboy1028
