I Worship His Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The first prisoner is moved up to the Holo Court and has his memories searched for incriminating evidence. Once they find the memory of him refusing to pay the temple, it shows the hand of the 790 Unit operating the machine pressing a button, and next to his hand is a switch that is in the down position. Once the Holo Judge passes sentence on the man, it cuts back to this spot again, but now the switch is in the up position with the 790 reaching out to flip it down, which causes the rail to switch over and put the prisoner on the track to get his organs cut out.

Continuity mistake: As the line of prisoners is reaching the Holo Court, it shows a single 790 Unit pushing out some equipment towards them, and only him. It cuts to Xev for a moment then back to the Holo Court and suddenly, as the camera pans over, a second 790 Unit appears standing next to the Court. (00:23:20)

Continuity mistake: As the prisoners are being moved off the transport and are strapped to these large metal frames, the frames move along a railing in a fixed position to each other, and also have a chain linked between each one running along the railing. One of the prisoners recognizes Stanley and starts shouting when his frame breaks loose. The camera shows a close up of the bar connecting his frame to the railing as some parts break out of it before it falls, and the chain that is connecting them has vanished. (00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: As the front of the prisoner line reaches the Holo Court, a 790 Unit is pushing some equipment out towards them to read their memories and stops, waiting for the first to reach him. But then a few shots later as the line stops, the same 790 unit is suddenly pushing the equipment to that spot once again, and also his shadow cast in front of the line disappears. (00:23:05)

Continuity mistake: On the prisoner transport line, they are each held in a fixed position in the line as they move along the railing towards the Holo Court. The man between Xev and the woman dressed in blue falls off the rails and is splattered on the ground, leaving a gap in the line between Xev and the blue woman. When they are shown again as the first person reaches the Holo Court, there is suddenly no gap between these two women. (00:23:15)

Revealing mistake: When the prisoner on the line recognizes Stanley and starts shouting, his frame breaks loose and he falls down. It leans forward and falls to the ground splattering the prisoner all over the floor, but as it is falling, it hits against the frame in front of him which has Xev tied to it. It pushes the bottom of Xev's frame up making it swing and hit the frame in front of her, and enough that it would have crushed where her feet were. But there is nothing to stop the metal from touching the metal frame in front of it revealing that for that shot there was nobody on that frame. (00:22:55)

Continuity mistake: As the prisoner line is moving, it shows Xev with a guy in front of her who's very skinny and wearing a black hat. When they reach the Holo Court the guy in front of her is suddenly a different guy, who's fatter and has no hat on. (00:22:35 - 00:23:15)

Continuity mistake: As the prisoner transport ship is unloading in a shot from behind Stanley at his station, several of the prisoner frame things holding them are being moved along the line. And Xev can be seen back a ways in the line, identifiable by her fat body in the white wedding dress. There are at least six other prisoners on the line in front of her. But then as the line stops when reaching the Holo Court, Xev is suddenly second in line with only one person before her. The woman in the blue body suit is still behind her though so she also moved up to be third in line. (00:22:20 - 00:23:10)

Continuity mistake: His Shadow does "the kiss" and transfers his soul into the new host with the Clerics. As they are lifting the new host back up, the shot cuts and suddenly two Clerics appear behind him. (00:16:10)

Continuity mistake: As the current host for His Shadow is dying, the Clerics are rushing him towards the temple structure for the Divine Predecessors and towards the foremost column to perform the transference operation. In the shot showing all the columns as they rush towards it, the bottom of the closest one is normal like the rest. When the camera cuts to a side angle as the Clerics reach the base, there are suddenly doors and curtains there with three other Clerics standing at the ready. (00:14:20)

Continuity mistake: After the Prisoner Transport Line Major gives the wrong access code, Stanley puts his arm up and rests his hand on the table next to him. But through the rest of their conversation his arm goes from this position to down by his side repeatedly depending on the camera angle. (00:12:25)

Continuity mistake: There are four other nuts lying on the ground around the hole at the feet of the 790 Robot where Stanley had been trying to throw them into the hole. When talking with the prisoner transporter woman, he throws another nut at the hole and makes it in, and in the close up of the hole the nut that was the furthest to the right vanishes while the other three remain in the same spot.

Revealing mistake: In the hanger dock where Stanley is working, there are some purple lasers in the background going up and down like a security gate. But during their animation for a moment, they suddenly jump back to previous positions as the loop in the animation is not lined up correctly. (00:11:40)

Continuity mistake: While Stanley is at his post as a guard, a woman comes onto his screen requesting clearance for a prisoner transport dock. Stanley puts his hand up onto his mouth thinking, but when the camera cuts to an angle showing the front of him, his arms are both suddenly down at his side. (00:11:55)

Continuity mistake: Stanley throws a metal nut at a 790's butt and when it hits, it shows it bounce off towards the right. When the camera cuts to the hole at the robot's feet, the nut falls into frame going left. (00:11:40)

Continuity mistake: When Stanley is trying to bounce nuts and bolts off a 790 Unit's butt into a vent like hole in the ground, it shows the robot standing with its feet next to the hole and aligned with it nearly centered perfectly. When it cuts to a different angle from a distance, the robot is now standing a bit to the right. Also the hole appears to change. (00:11:40)

Visible crew/equipment: After the cannibal woman spits on the guard as he walks through the prison transport ship, he comes to a long haired guy. But as he comes onto screen you can see the end of the set piece for the ship with the walls of the shooting studio visible. Then when the camera cuts to another angle it shows the guard still has a lot of ship to walk through. (00:09:25)

Continuity mistake: In the prisoner transport ship after the crew wakes up, one goes down a ladder to check on the prisoners to find Number 11 freeze dried. In the first shot, the dead prisoner's arm is casting a shadow to the left, but when the angle changes the shadow is to the right of his arm. (00:09:05)

Continuity mistake: When Stanley is sleeping in his bed as the computer starts to wake him up, his head is turned left under his covers. When the camera cuts to a close up, his head is turned right. (00:06:35)

Audio problem: As Kai is the last fighter left, he flies towards His Shadow's control pod on his ship to ram into it kamikaze style. As he's approaching and it cuts to the control pod dome starting to close, you suddenly begin to hear the alarms going off inside The Fore Shadow ship. And it's heard from inside Kai's fighter, and from outside from camera angles. And then when Kai crashes into it and flips out inside, you still hear the alarm inside the ship at almost the exact same volume as heard from outside. It's almost quieter even. (00:03:50)

Kai: You might consider abandoning Lyekka on this planet.
Stanley Tweedle: But I like her... when she's not hungry anyway.
