The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Hogan gives a birthday party when the prisoners capture a German plane. When it is taking off, it is an English Lancaster bomber with a twin tail. As it is flying overhead, it is an American B-17 with a single tail. Finally as it is shown flying, it is a German FW-200 maritime bomber.

The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The ground is soft, dark gray dirt. From the next episode on it is hard packed yellowish clay.

The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In this episode, the doghouse that disguises an entrance to the underground is flipped up on end, and the separate floor is flipped up in the opposite direction. In all of the following episodes, the doghouse, and the floor, are one piece.

The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Burkhalter holds the rank of Colonel, Carter is a Lieutenant. In subsequent episodes, Burkhalter is a General, and Carter is a Sergeant.

Hold That Tiger - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When in Hogan's quarters, they're planning to steal a Tiger Tank from the Germans. When Hogan rolls up the map, the holder it's on magically slides back into the wall. Any other time, he has to push it back.

Kommandant of the Year - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: The missile sitting on the trailer is thin and yellow, the missile actually seen flying is a fat, pointy, silver Atlas missile - which is an American intercontinental missile by the way, not a German tactical missile.

German Bridge Is Falling Down - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When we see the men lighting cigarettes, there are 25 people forming the arrow. When we are treated to an aerial view of it, there are 37 dots of light visible.

German Bridge Is Falling Down - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: During his experiments to create explosives in the tunnels, Carter has a pretty extensive set of glassware on his workbench. Necessarily he would have to replace (most of) that after each explosion - not to mention various light bulbs, furniture and other non-blast-proof stuff by the way. A lot of that glassware is specialty equipment, it would not be easy to come by even one set of in peacetime for a free civilian. In wartime, for an allied prisoner (even with the heroes' connections) it should be nigh impossible, and totally impossible to have an inexhaustible supply of the stuff. So we can either assume a giant plot hole, or treat it (as I did) as a big continuity mistake.

German Bridge Is Falling Down - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: As Klink is talking to the sentry post, his hand goes from around the microphone part to along the length of the receiver between angles.

Movie Nut

Movies Are Your Best Escape - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Schultz herds the men into the barracks, Hogan and Le Beau are about three feet apart. A second later, they are only about a foot apart.

Movies Are Your Best Escape - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Hogan takes the movie camera from Klink right side up. The next second, it's upside down. Then when Hogan goes to dunk the camera in the water, the lenses are pointing to his right. In the close up, they're facing his left.

Go Light on the Heavy Water - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: The boys are looking out the window at the mysterious truck. When the camera looks at them from behind, there's a building right in front of them.

Go Light on the Heavy Water - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the smoke bomb goes off, Klink has his monocle on. After the smoke really starts, his monocle is gone without being taken off.

Top Hat, White Tie and Bomb Sights - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: As Burkhalter talks to Klink, he raises his hand for emphasis on a point. When the camera cuts to a wide shot, you see his arm down by his side, much too quick without a movement to relax the arm.

Movie Nut

Top Hat, White Tie and Bomb Sights - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Hogan is looking around as Klink is showing the gate to Burkhalter. Hogan's hat is up on his head in the usual position. After the camera cuts to Klink, then back to Hogan, the bill of his hat is down shading his eyes.

Happiness Is a Warm Sergeant - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When accessing the tunnel entrance, usually the spot is in the middle of the side board that is tapped. Newkirk slaps the corner and post of the top bunk.

Movie Nut

The Scientist - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Newkirk calls "Heil Hitler", everyone in the lobby salutes. A second later, in the closeup of Hogan and Newkirk, everyone's arms are suddenly back by their sides, much too quickly to be real.

Movie Nut

The Scientist - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When explaining the "experiment" Lebeau has going, the multi-chambered tube is on the left (from the camera's POV) and the long tube with the coil is on the right. As the men up to leave after Carter comes in, the tubes are reversed.

Movie Nut

Hogan's Hofbrau - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: LeBeau and Newkirk are on a building roof and the Nazi flag is blowing in the wind with great force. In the next shot a guard tower is shown with a Nazi flag that's hanging straight down and not blowing at all. (00:01:00)

Snag.1

Hogan's Hofbrau - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: As Schultz is telling Hogan that he's a family man, the shot ends with Hogan starting to turn his head to the left. The next shot shows Hogan looking straight at Schultz, then turning his head. (00:15:25)
