Robin of Sherwood picture

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Alan a Dale": Lady Mildred rides side-saddle. But when Gisburne gallops away with her, some shots reveal that the stunt woman riding the fast-moving horse is astride it full straddle. Her skirt is blown back just enough to see a brief glimpse of the stunt rider's real leg on the horse's right, and the fake pair of legs in side-saddle position on its left. For just a moment, the lady appears to have three legs. (00:20:00)

Plane Death - S1-E14

Deliberate mistake: When the bartender shoots the shotgun at Landon, the windows blow out the wrong way. This was likely done for the actors' safety. Also note how Landon flinches a bit off beat from the explosion.
