Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

What He Beheld (2) - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Derek shows John his past self playing baseball with Kyle Reese, Derek hits the ball towards John, John picks it up and then gives it to Kyle. As Derek hits the ball towards John, he is holding the bat at an upwards angle towards the right. But in the next shot of him, he is holding the bat at a downwards angle towards the left. The ball also travels in the opposite direction to what it did previously.

Visible crew/equipment: When Charley arrives at the apartment complex in his ambulance after Cromartie kills all the SWAT officers and throws them into the swimming pool, a camera and a cameraman are reflected in the ambulance's left wing mirror as he gets out.

What He Beheld (2) - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Season 2, Episode 20: "To the Lighthouse". Derek orders Cameron to work on the flat tire of their truck. Cameron quickly turns her head away from Derek to the truck. In the far shot, Cameron turns her head to the truck again.

Queen's Gambit - S1-E5

Character mistake: When Dixon arrives to find Derek lying on the table with a serious gunshot wound to the chest, he immediately begins giving Derek chest compressions - without doing even the most basic assessment of Deker's condition, verifying whether he is breathing or even has a pulse. Dixon is a trained Emergency Medical Technician, not a passing samaritan. His error is against the most basic rules of his profession. (00:40:10)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the detective is updating Sarah Connor's wanted page, it shows her height as 5' 4". In the next scene, when the Terminator finds a match in the FBI database, her height shows up as 5' 5". (00:11:40)

The Tower is Tall But the Fall is Short - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Derek and Jesse are talking in bed, the bed sheets covering Jessie keep changing colour between shots. Sometimes they're white, sometimes they're gold.

Revealing mistake: Episode: "Strange Things Happen at the One Two Point". When the body of Dr. Sherman is uncovered on the gurney, his eyelids flutter, then his eyeballs can be seen moving beneath his eyelids. (00:07:25)

Continuity mistake: Season 2, episode 21, "Adam Raised a Cain." While in the garage of Ms. Weaver's house, a terminator, out to get Savannah, takes four bullets from Sarah in the back. Later as you see the terminator go after John and Savannah, you can see his back as he is coming up some stairs, and the terminator now has five bullets holes in its back.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Season 2, Episode 20: To the Lighthouse." When Cameron is firing back at the man on the passenger side of the van coming at her, the man drops the gun in his lap when Cameron shoots him. The very next shot shows the gun tumbling around on the road on the opposite side of where he was shooting.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: EP "Goodbye to All That": On the firing range when John Connor fixes the stoppage on the rifle, his shooting glasses are on his head, when he hands the rifle back, the glasses are now over his eyes, and in the next shot they are on his head again. Not enough time has occurred between shots for this to happen.

GalahadFairlight

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Ep. "Samson and Delilah" - As Cameron flips over the Jeep Cherokee, the smoke coming from the bottom of it is from the cannon used to flip it, the cannon in later shots then disappears, more notably when the camera goes above the Jeep with Sarah crawling out.

Allison From Palmdale - S2-E4

Other mistake: Cameron breaks the door upon entering Jodi's house. When John arrives and subsequently leaves with Cameron, he closes the door shut and it closes normally as if it hadn't been broken.

Knever

What He Beheld (2) - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When the FBI agents are thrown into the pool, you can see, at the very end, when one is "falling" down to the bottom, that bubbles are entering one's mouth, showing that one was actually rising and the video was reversed.

Goodbye To All That - S2-E5

Other mistake: When Sarah puts Marty on the bus on his way home he steps onto the first step and turns to face Sarah as the door closes and the bus departs. It is against the law in California for buses to begin moving until passengers are on the main deck of the bus (one step up from the boy). This law was enacted after a child fell from the entry step of the bus (exactly where Marty stood), the doors opened and they were run over by the bus. California operates a zero tolerance policy on this matter; drivers know that a single infraction will result in the loss of their commercial drivers license and is taken very seriously by all drivers, without a single infraction having been reported in years.

Queen's Gambit - S1-E5

Trivia: Cameron meets a prototype robot that smiles and waves at her in in the exhibition outside the chess tournament. Briefly visible on its control screen, alongside basic commands, is the word "BladeRunner", a reference to the classic sci-fi film which also features a dystopian future populated by humanoid robots.
