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)


Flight - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: When Pope bursts into the infirmary and sees Westmoreland's body, watch the collar of Westmoreland's jacket. You can see it moving up and down as though he's breathing. (00:03:30)


Flight - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: After Pope enters Scofield's cell to see the escape hole, we see him standing outside the cell looking out at everyone throwing toilet tissue etc. If you watch closely right after we see a guy pulling his pillows toward him to tear up, it cuts to another inmate who is throwing stuff out as well. Only thing is, we see the cell door slides to the side slightly which would indicate that the cell doors where not locked. In the event of an escape, lockdown would happen immediately, with all cell doors locked with the prisoners inside their cells. (00:04:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Just after we see the inmate get stabbed there is a shot during the quick montage of one inmate holding the door, while his cellmate climbs up onto the bed for a better look at what is going on. In this very quick shot, the cell door moves despite the fact A wing is on lock down. (00:07:15)

The Key - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: At the start we see a clip of a heavy forklift carrying a white car in the scrap yard. Later on we see the same clip used again but cut short of the Mustang appearing in shot. (00:07:30 - 00:15:50)

Killing Your Number - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Sucre and C-Note came to Michael's help with dealing with the general. Sucre has noticeably longer hair than normal. In the next clip his hair is gone. (00:20:00 - 00:21:00)

Suggested correction: Sucre is balding, but was shaving his head very often throughout the seasons, that's why he had little to no hair. Of course, if he is not completely bald, his remaining hair grows. He didn't shave his head at that time, thus he had longer hair than normal. He shaved his hair after that, and that is the reason why in the next clip his hair is gone.
