The Haunting Of Bill Crouse - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Bill Crouse is in his home, near the end of the episode, he pours himself a glass of whiskey. He looks out of the window and see Jen's 'ghost', then screams and falls to the floor. As he's crawling backwards, he's no longer holding the glass of whiskey - and you don't hear it drop or smash.

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.

Yesterday's Jam - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the episode, Roy is eating & drinking while the phone is ringing. Eventually he picks it up, then Moss comes in and throws him a muffin. Just before Moss walks in, Roy's coffee cup is on his right on the desk. The next shot, as he catches the muffin, the cup has instantly moved to his left. Afterwards, the cup is back on his right.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, Roy is helping Jen push her shoes on. While he's pushing one shoe on, you can see Jen has her shoe on her left foot.

Yesterday's Jam - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the party down in the basement, after Moss has told the embarrassing Amsterdam story, Roy comes back in the room and realises nobody's laughing. He walks up to Moss and says, "What story did you think I meant?" Roy has a beer in his left hand. The next shot, within seconds, he's shaking Moss by the shoulders with both hands. There was no time frame for him to have put the cup of beer down.

Yesterday's Jam - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Moss asks if Roy is OK, it shows Moss holding his cup by the handle. In the close-up shot of Moss, his grip is on the cup itself. In the next shot he is holding it by the handle again.

The Haunting Of Bill Crouse - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Bill Crouse is sitting at a desk talking to his colleague about Jen. The first two shots show him sitting back on the chair with his legs up on the desk. The next shot, he has instantly moved to sitting normally with his legs down and leaning forward.

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.

Bishop73

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.

The Red Door - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Moss goes to show Roy the picture on the bottom of his mug, the first shot shows the mug on the desk to Moss's right. However, the next shot shows Moss picking up the mug from a different place on the desk, further to his left.

00:03:50

MadFairy1988

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.
