Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Jen is sitting at the sofa with the phone on her lap, waiting for Daniel's call. She is wearing no shoes. In the next shot, she stands up and instantly has black high heels on.

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: In the first few shots, the mess on Roy's forehead is quite a long smear. When he steps out of the taxi, it is now a small blob.

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Moss are in the basement talking about the night before, just before Jen comes in and we hear her laughing, Roy has the wooden stick from his coffee hanging out of the corner of his mouth. In the next instant shot showing the side of his face, as Jen walks through the door, it has gone.

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Jen are arguing about women wanting bad guys, there is a white mug in front of Roy on the desk. In the next shot, another cup has appeared behind it.

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: The security guard (the guy Jen fancies) is sitting on the couch reading a big thick book. The first two shots show him holding the book from underneath, a few pages in. The next shot, his hands have changed position and he has instantly read through to almost the end of the book.

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Factual error: It doesn't make sense that Daniel would be researching classical music, or that he chooses Jen as his 'phone a friend' because of her apparent knowledge on the subject, because there are no topic categories on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' - the questions are entirely random, Daniel would have no way of knowing one of the questions he'd be asked would be about a particular topic.

Suggested correction: That's exactly why he was studying classical music, he didn't know what topics would be covered and he wanted to have a good knowledge of various topics. Since Jen appeared more knowledgeable in classical music than he did, he wanted her to be one of his phone-a-friend in case he came across a classical music question that stumped him. At the time, a contestant pre-arranged with producers 3 friends to be considered as a phone-a-friend. Daniel undoubtedly had 2 other friends or relatives that had greater knowledge on other topics than he did.

There's no way Daniel just happened to be studying classical music and seemingly nothing else, he didn't ask Jen about any other subject, the episode implied that Daniel was studying classical music as though it was a dead cert that a question would appear. This wouldn't be the case with Millionaire.

Fifty-Fifty - S1-E3

Deliberate mistake: Towards the end, Roy's sunglasses keep changing, in almost every shot. It's so blatant that it must be deliberate, but there's no reference made to what might be the reasoning behind it.
