Burn Notice

End Run - S3-E3

Audio problem: When Michael is forced to do "errands" for Brennen, they stop by Jonathan Carver's house to get numbers from him for a voice key. The code played back at the facility is 71348. He says "3" in a medium pitch (tone) at the house, but it is high pitched when played back at the facility; he says "8" in a medium pitch, and it's also high pitched later. And finally he says "9" in a low pitch and it's played back medium pitch. Also very obvious is the fact that Jonathan never says "1" or "7."

End Run - S3-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Michael breaks into the car, after he drives off you can see a camera standing in the back seat in the car, and it's pretty clear it's a stunt man driving. (Helps to pause at 18:07.)

End Run - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: During the scene when Michael is attempting to deceive Brennen into letting him and Nate go (from the time Brennen receives the picture message to when Brennen leaves), Brennen's necktie (right below the knot) changes from having a dimple to being flat, 6 or 7 times during the scene.

Old Friends - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when Mike is threatening the Assassin, by withholding his allergy shot. The needle flips instantly in his hand between shots. Noticeable because of the black tip on one side.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, before the SUV rolls, it is a new Escalade. However, during and after the roll, it changes to a first generation Escalade.

End Run - S3-E3

Character mistake: Near the end, when Michael reveals to Brennen he knows everything about him, he says, "I know everything about Tyler Brennen." Michael emphasizes "Tyler" as if it's a big deal that he knows Brennen's first name. Michael already knew Brennen's first name from the first time he met him, in Season 2, Episode 15 "Sins of Omission."

Loose Ends (2) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Michael is having a meeting with the guy who is asking how Michael found out about him (where Sam is standing guard with the sniper rifle.) Michael has a gun pulled on him and is trying to escape. As Michael is trying to leave in the Charger, he pulls backwards and makes a 90 degree turn so that the passenger side of the Charger is facing the guy with the gun. The windshield could not have been shot from this angle. The next camera shot Michael is driving backwards again with the windshield facing the guy so he can shoot a hole in the center of Michael's windshield.

Scatter Point - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When Sam pops open the cabinet with the wire he will later cut, you can see that the wire was cut and glued together again. When Sam cuts the wire some time later, it's in perfect condition. The taping was probably done in reverse order.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Just after Michael throws his mothers cigarette out of the car, there is a shot from the inside through the front window. There is a large crack in the glass, bottom left of the rear view mirror. When the car is shot from the front, there's no crack.

Hard Bargain - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the kidnapper holds Michael at gunpoint on the balcony, his hand holding the gun is shaking. In the next shot, from behind, his hand is perfectly still. The shot then switches back, and his hand is shaking again.

Devil You Know - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Michael's mother is arrested, we see the cuffs go on with her bracelet nearer her hands than the cuffs. The shot changes and suddenly her bracelet's further up her arm - no way it could have moved there past the cuffs.

Broken Rules - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Michael has to prove himself for his new "boss" Concha Ramirez. He walks across the street to Fiona and starts a mock robbery to get her purse. When he approaches the car, the window is down. Three seconds later he is at the car and the window is up so Michael can break it. Watch as the window frame goes from clean (as if the window were down) to broken pieces of glass on the frame between shots.

Wanted Man - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Michael is eating his slush, the way he holds his cup changes between shots.

Comrades - S2-E4

Character mistake: Michael states that if you touch someone being tasered, you'll be tasered too. That's not true unless you touch them right between the probes. And in a later episode Michael's touching a man being tased with no ill effects.

Dead or Alive - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Michael has his gun on the dirty cops head, the gun is resting on his forehead and Michaels hand is on his throat. In the next shot the gun is right between the cops eyes, and his hand is on his chest. This keeps going back and forth a few times.

Hard Time - S4-E10

Factual error: When Fiona slips Michael a "key" during their kiss, Michael keeps it and no problem. In reality, all prisoners are searched thoroughly before returning to their cells. This includes a full oral search.

Loose Ends (2) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the heroin importer is questioning Sam, he has his hand around his face, with his fingers touching his ear. When the shot moves to the front, his hand is more on his throat and nowhere near his ear. When we cut to the back, his hand moves again.

Fight or Flight - S1-E4

Factual error: When Michael attempts to start the Charger, the starter just clicks, indicative of a dead battery or faulty starter. He checks his father's logbook and reads "spark plugs." Unless the cylinders are filled with an non-compressible liquid, there is no way that spark plugs are going to prevent the engine from cranking.

Scorched Earth - S6-E1

Revealing mistake: Near the end when everyone is trying to escape the building before the explosion, the team escapes but Sam is missing. Michael calls out for Sam until he is shouting. A view of the building shows a stack of something with a horizontal gap in the middle. Sam's arm and blue shirt can be seen in the gap while Bruce Campbell waits for his cue to come out with the hostage.

Damned If You Do - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: Xavier's henchmen show up at Oswald's associate's house with 2 Escalade SUV's. Then one more Escalade, same year as the 2 others, shows up behind the house. As soon as Michael says "One more coming up. Third", the next shot of the Escalade shows a much older model.

Turn and Burn - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: About half way through when Michael enters his mother's house, she thanks him for the new coffee maker, then on the right is a woman whose head moves. In the next shot she has her hand over her mouth.

00:23:45

Desperate Times - S6-E10

Continuity mistake: Michael attempts to have a conversation with his mother Maddie while she is folding clothes. She picks up a blue Hawaiian shirt and begins to fold it. The angle switches for a moment to Michael and then immediately back to Maddie, only now she is folding a white shirt. The blue shirt is already folded on the table and is seen under another shirt.

Loose Ends (2) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Michael is on the phone with the heroin dealer at the docks, he has his phone at his left ear. When the camera moves to a shot from the back, there's no phone near his face (or in the frame for that matter) and his mouth doesn't move while talking. When the shot cuts back, the phone instantly is back at his ear.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This basically happens in nearly every episode. Whenever Michael's mom is smoking, which she does a lot, her cigarette and smoke change size and position with every shot. Although it's hard to keep a cigarette burning the same way with each take, it seems as if no attempt was made at all.
