That's So Raven picture

Show generally

Factual error: In the episode "Mind Your Business," the saboteur sabotages Raven's business by pouring lots of kernels in the popcorn machine. However, the saboteur pours the kernels into the glass holding box instead of the pot, so the kernels would not have heated up enough to cause the popcorn mountain.

Friendly Skies - S1-E2

Factual error: When Dan goes into the machine for his MRI a light switches on just as his head enters the machine. MRIs have soft muted lights already in the machine (so technician can see the patient via cameras) they want you to rest and be calm to avoid claustrophobia, there are no bright lights. I have had 5 different MRIs in 4 different machines in 2 different states, all were the same. (00:02:00)

The Premonition - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene after the second crash, when the pilot and his wife "borrow" the jeep to return to the base, the shot is flipped, reversing the positions of the husband and wife in a mirror image of the real vehicle, placing the "driver" in the passenger position and the spare tire, which should be on the near side, is now on the far side. In the next shot, as the vehicle nears the base, everything suddenly resumes the correct perspective.

Getaway - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Bash takes his shirt off revealing the wound on his right arm. He starts wrapping it again with cloth and the scene cuts to Kenna. It cuts back quickly to Bash and his bandage is fully tied. There is no way he could accomplish this one handed.
