The Probe - S2-E17

Revealing mistake: Indicative of previous takes, the floor inside the alien probe already has several human footprints all over it before the characters exit their life boat and walk on it. (00:10:00)

The Probe - S2-E17

Deliberate mistake: Amanda survives a plane crash into the ocean, hurricane winds in a life raft, then experimentation and attacks by giant microbes inside the alien probe. Yet when she and the others are rescued at the end, not one strand of hair is loose in her 1960s "beehive" hairdo. (00:49:05)

Visible crew/equipment: Boom mic shadow visible. 23:04.

The Probe - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When she's inside the giant test tube, Amanda raises her arms over her head. In the very next shot, with no time for her to have moved that fast, her arms are straight down and held rigidly at her sides. (00:36:15)
