Supernatural

Skin - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dean are tied up in the sewer, Dean gets out of the ropes holding him and the camera changes to Sam, but in the background you can see Dean with the ropes still around his arms & upper body.

Cybermoose

There's Something About Mary - S12-E21

Revealing mistake: At the start of the episode when Dean calls Ketch, Dean's phone is not in Call Mode.

THGhost

Let It Bleed - S6-E21

Factual error: In the opening, H.P. Lovecraft is calming his nerves with alcohol. In real life, Lovecraft was a complete teetotaler, who even wrote stories about the evils of liquor.

Brian Katcher

The Benders - S1-E15

Factual error: Officer Kathleen looks for Sam's data in her database. The record ID is DF-23094. She then follows the link to Dean's record. Its record ID is also DF-23094. A database cannot have two records with the same ID.

Scarecrow - S1-E11

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the episode, the couple comes out of the car and when it pans to show the orchard, a shadow can be seen walking in the lights.

Fresh Blood - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: Sam takes the SIM card out of his phone so it can't be tracked, but when he takes the back off his phone, there's no battery, and the SIM card is just lying in the back not attached to anything! Same for Dean's - he takes the back off and the card just falls right out, not secured in any way as it would be in a real phone.

Home - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Sam tells the little girl to take her brother outside. The little girl runs out with her brother and Dean asks the little girl where Sam is, Dean runs to the Impala and grabs a shotgun. When Dean is running to the house, he runs on the lawn and you can see the shadow of the camera man running with Dean at the bottom of the screen.

Dead In The Water - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the girl is taking a bath, the water is so full that its almost overflowing. She gets into the tub and the water doesn't overflow. The faucet is still running and yet the water keeps changing from full to down below her shoulders.

Swap Meat - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: Gary (disguised as Sam) sits at the bar and orders a banana daiquiri. The woman next to him tries to engage him in a conversation as he sips his drink, and each time the camera switches between him and the woman, the level of his drink changes noticeably up and down.

A Very Supernatural Christmas - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In 'A Very Supernatural Christmas' (S3E08), when the Gods are beginning to sacrifice Sam and Dean, they slice Sam's right forearm. However, at the end of the episode, Sam has his left forearm bandaged, not his right.

Dead In The Water - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the Carlton son reaches in to pull the plug out of the sink you can see the plug chain on the cutting board to the left of the sink before he even reaches in, then he pulls it out and puts the plug chain on the board.

All Hell Breaks Loose (2) - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Dean kisses the Crossroads Demon, his head is tilted left, but when it cuts to the next shot his head is tilted to the right. It switches back and forth in the next two shots too quickly for Dean or the demon to move their heads.

Shannon Jackson

Skin - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Sam is tied up and eventually fights the fake-Dean in Becka's house, there is a shot that shows both his feet and hands tied. During the fight, both his hands and feet are shown free, but he only cut free his hands, and began fighting immediately after that. (00:25:20 - 00:25:55)

A Very Supernatural Christmas - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When the boys are tied up and the pagan gods are preparing for the ritual, the second time they cut into Dean's arm the knife is pressed along his arm and the blood is removed showing no cut at all.

Hook Man - S1-E7

Plot hole: When Sam and Dean realise they need to destroy the hook to stop the hook man, they find out that it has been reforged into something else. They state it needs to be set on fire to stop him, but if it was melted down and reforged then it has already been set on fire and the hook man shouldn't be latched on to it in the first place.

Route 666 - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: During the love scene between Dean and Cassie, you can see the tape used on Cassie to keep the show PG-13. (00:23:15)

LorgSkyegon

Provenance - S1-E19

Other mistake: In the scene where Sam, Dean and Sarah go to compare the painting to the earlier photo of it, Dean, noticing the changed position of the razor, says, "Jared, check it out." He is speaking to the character Sam. The actor's name is Jared. [Confirmed in cast interviews].

Scarecrow - S1-E11

Factual error: At the beginning of the episode it is stated that we are in the month of April - yet in the orchard there are ladders, fallen apples and baskets filled with fresh fruit everywhere, as if it were harvest time. The god is declared to grant fertility and not climate change, so the harvest decoration seems definitely out of season.

Pac-Man Fever - S8-E20

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Sam and Dean enter the abandoned shipping warehouse to save Charlie, you can see Charlie's legs crossed while sitting in one shot, but in the next shot they are uncrossed. (00:27:10)

AlcoholicWaffle

Pilot - S1-E1

Dean Winchester: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

Hollywood Babylon - S2-E18

Trivia: At the beginning, the cabin looks very similar to the cabin in The Evil Dead, even the swinging bench (although on the opposite side of the door). And the girl calls out the name Ashleu, Bruce Campbell's character in Evil Dead.
