Supernatural

Hell House - S1-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When Dean, Sam, Ed and Harry have just shot Mordechai, the cameraman's arm is visible on the right-hand side of the screen. (00:33:30)

Hell House - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: Dean gets his phone and snaps a picture of Sam when he's asleep. You see his phone take the picture but the screen is then white, showing he didn't really take anything.

Asylum - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dean reads about the Roosevelt Asylum in his dad's journal, there is a picture of a Wendigo on the opposite page of the newspaper clipping but in a different scene, Dean checks the article again for information on the South Wing in the Asylum but this time on the opposite page of the newspaper clipping, there is no picture.

Provenance - S1-E19

Audio problem: When Sarah goes to touch Evelyn's shoulder, you hear Sam's voice telling her to stop, except his mouth isn't moving at the time the phrase is being uttered. (00:23:50)

Route 666 - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when Dean is being chased by the possessed truck, Sam tells him to take a left. After he's made the left, Sam tells him to go exactly 7/10ths of a mile and stop. Dean looks at his gage and it reads 70098.3. Dean looks up, then back at it: it changes to 70098.5, but the next time he looks down it says 70100.6 and when he stops it says 70101.0, meaning he's gone 2 miles too far. (Probably meaning it took two shots to get the scene right but they messed up on the gage.) (00:35:00)

Home - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: The baby gets into the fridge, which then closes - we see a closeup shot of the babyproofing clip shutting itself. Then when the mother sees the spilled milk and realises what's happened, there are a few shots of the fridge - in shots from the front the clip's open, and in shots from the side it's closed. When she goes to open the fridge it's open again - she even fiddles with it to give the appearance of undoing it before opening the fridge door.

Bloody Mary - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Sam and Dean enter the Shoemaker home, a woman leaning against a wall holding a coffee cup starts to follow them down the hall. When the shot changes, the woman is back against the wall, talking to someone who wasn't there in the previous shot. (00:08:00)

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

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Hell House - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Both Sam and Dean show no signs of bodily damage or harm, even though in the previous episode "Shadow," both brothers were attacked and their faces had been slashed by the shadow demons summoned by Meg.

Pilot - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Dean puts the cassette in the car stereo he reads 'Metallica' off it, yet AC/DC plays. [In the original version Metallica was played, but AC/DC was used in newer versions due to copyright issues.]

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.
