Unearthed - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: After Lincoln and LJ have been recognized by the waitress, they speed off down a road. During their conversation in the car, whenever we see LJ from (his) right side, his hair is blowing in a strong draft, and is blown away from the temple. In all other shots, his hair is completely calm, and is hanging down and forward, covering his right temple completely. (00:13:50)

Cute Poison - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: Near the end, when Michael is unscrewing the sink before kicking the wall in, watch his hands in the foreground while he is talking to Sucre. Just when Sucre says "But what you were doing up there in the infirmary." Michael starts using his fingers to take the bolt out. You can see that there is no bolt, just him turning air, with a mystery 'unscrewing' sound effect. (00:39:35)

First Down - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Bellick's partner, Geary, is wearing a light grey T-shirt, with a very prominent sweat stain on the front. Throughout the episode, this stain constantly changes shape and size, even within two shots of the same scene, and sometimes it disappears altogether. This is best seen when him and Bellick are herding the prisoners to their car. In the close-ups of him, his shirt is completely dry, in long shots the sweat stain is there. (00:04:45)

English, Fitz or Percy - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Michael is supposed to be in Pope's office holding the support for the Taj Mahal so it didn't come unglued, Abruzzi placed the makeshift key in the lock of the door, allowing Michael to escape to get back with the other inmates. When Michael opens the door and it's unlocked, the key is in the deadbolt. As he shuts the door behind him, the key is in the lock of the door knob. (00:23:20)

She does not flinch or shy away from the gun, but in the next shot, a close-up of Steadman, the gun muzzle is pointed at the camera with Veronica off-screen, and so the gun is suddenly not touching her.
