How I Met Your Mother picture

Desperation Day - S6-E16

Other mistake: When Marshall returns from Minnesota, he approaches Lily lying on the couch from the kitchen area rather than from the door, and Lily still acts surprised to see him, even when he was obviously already in the apartment with her.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Rachel arrives at Central Perk, Monica introduces her to everybody, including to Chandler, as if they don't know each other. In later episodes, we learn that Chandler met Monica and Rachel a couple of times when they were in high school (including when Monica cut his toe off). Chandler even kissed Rachel once, and since Chandler always says that he hasn't kissed many women, he should have perfectly remembered Rachel, and Monica should have remembered that the two of them knew each other.

Punk Chick - S1-E22

Other mistake: Jackie and Kitty are baking a pie in the kitchen and Kelso walks in. Jackie and Kelso have an awkward encounter as if they are separated, but they got back together at prom.

Beverly Hills, 90210 picture

Show generally

Other mistake: When the show aired in 1990, in the pilot episode Brenda falls for Jason. She later on reveals herself to be a "16 year old junior" in high school. Season 2 opens up with the gang on summer break which technically would make them going into their senior year. It wasn't until Season 3 that they were going into their senior year. They graduated in 1993 from West Beverly but the show debuted in 1990 so technically they should have been sophomores.

Little House on the Prairie picture

There's No Place Like Home (2) - S5-E6

Other mistake: At the very end, Mr. Hanson is seen walking toward the church. Because of his stroke, he's slow and unsteady. We see several close-ups of his feet, showing how he's struggling. Two of those shots are the same footage. It's obvious, because you see that he drags his foot over a small stick in the road and stumbles - and in both shots, it is exactly the same.

Sex and the City picture

Escape from new york - S3-E13

Other mistake: When Carrie, Samantha and Miranda step outside of the hotel so Carrie can have a cigarette, she takes a couple of draws then throws it down on the step. She tries to stub it out with her shoe by twisting her foot on it but she (the actress) accidentally kicks the cigarette down the step, so she has to just pretend to still be stubbing it out.

Charmed picture

Siren Song - S5-E4

Other mistake: When the siren gets the pole that was speared through her pulled out, there is only blood in the middle part of the pole. If it had really been pulled out of her, it would be bloody all the way along. (00:19:55)

Bones picture

The Woman in Limbo - S1-E22

Other mistake: Hodges and Angie find a piece of paper buried with Bones' mother and they tell Bones that the date of the movie is September 22, 1993. The ticket has two dates, September 22, 1993 and in two different places it says April 22, 1993. The Fugitive was released August 6th, 1993.

Roswell picture

Destiny (2) - S1-E22

Other mistake: When Max heals Kyle's bullet wound, the blood disappears from Kyle's t-shirt, but blood from Liz's bullet wound in the pilot episode stained her waitress uniform and did not disappear when she was healed by Max.

Bonanza picture

The Dream Riders - S2-E32

Other mistake: An Army friend of Ben's uses Ponderosa land to test his hot-air balloon. There are very few clouds in the sky. A balloon in flight is shown but it is obviously stock footage. The sky is filled with clouds and the film contains several black spots and scratches.

The O.C. picture

Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: After Kirsten is talking to Sandy about the fact Seth got into a fight and she comes inside to see that Ryan has made breakfast, there is no way he could of set the table, found all the utensils and ingredients and cooked them by the time Kirsten gets back inside.

Frasier picture

Legal Tender Love and Care - S8-E6

Other mistake: Frasier comes into Abbie's office holding his overcoat - a couple of shots later it is draped over a chair even though Frasier didn't have time to put it there and get back to where he stood throughout the scene.

Grey's Anatomy picture

The Lion Sleeps Tonight - S8-E18

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Meredith, Derek and Zola see the lion crossing the street in front of the car, the lion roars and it is clear that the lion is not missing any teeth. However, later in the episode, Richard removes a tooth that had gotten lodged in the male mauling victim's arm. The victim was the lion's owner and the attack happened in his house, so by the time the lion was out the tooth should already be missing.

Pride and Prejudice picture

Show generally

Other mistake: In the scene where Mrs. Bennet is thanking Col. Foster for his kindness to Lydia for taking her to Brighton, the camera pans out while Mrs. Bennet is still speaking. If you look at Mrs. Bennet and Col. Foster from that shot, it shows Col. Foster speaking to Mr. and Mrs. Bennet at the same moment. Mrs. Bennet could not possibly be speaking at that time.

Helen of Troy picture

Show generally

Other mistake: Near the end of the movie, we can see that the walls of Troy have suffered heavy damage from siege equipment, probably catapults. Yet in the entire film, we don't see any siege engines. The Greeks haven't brought any on their ships, we don't see them make any in their beach camp and they don't have any with them when they try to storm the city. There's simply no indication that the Greeks have ever had or used siege equipment.

The L Word picture

Season 3 generally

Other mistake: Given that Alice only stole some of Dana's ashes to scatter at the camp ground, the amount of ashes seen poured into the waterfall by all of the characters is totally unrealistic; much more, in fact, than what would equate to an entire cremated corpse.

Who's the Boss: Part 2 - S4-E13

Sukeban no me ni namida? Rûru muyou no kakutou shintaisou kecchaku - S1-E13

Other mistake: In the previous episode, Kuno was watching the match from the St. Hebereke stands, which would make sense since he's cheering for their champion, for the first time. In this episode, he's in the Furikan stands, with Ranma's supporters.

Other mistake: The Seattle Police officer's badge states Seattle Police, but the patch on his jacket states Metropolitan Police. (01:15:00)

United States of Tara picture

Alterations - S1-E7

Other mistake: When Max drives Charmaine to the surgical clinic, watch the background. In the first few shots, they are driving through some sort-of suburban neighborhood if you look out the windows, but suddenly when the camera cuts outside of the car, they're in a parking lot for the clinic, nowhere near the neighborhood they were literally just driving through. There was no time-jump as they are having a continuous conversation through the entire scene.
