Gavin & Stacey picture

Episode One - S2-E1

Sky: Part 1 - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: The baby carrier little Sky is in as the group heads towards the car changes between takes. When they are walking down the driveway, it is open, and Sarah Jane quickly closes it when Gita comes up. Gita opens the carrier, to discover the baby, and Sarah Jane closes it again. There is more dialogue and Gita goes back to cooing at the baby. When did the carrier open again? Then the car alarms go off and if you look closely, you can see it's closed again, which is confirmed when the baby is handed off to Clyde.

Cory in the House picture

Smells Like School Spirit - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Newt is going to measure for the "Chill Zone," he asks Cory to help him. At first Cory is holding the main piece of the measuring tape, while Newt runs out with the "pull out end." Shortly, after cutting out to a conversation, Cory is holding the "pull out end" and then releases it, so his buddy Newt is the one caught by surprise when Cory releases his end of the measuring tape.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl picture

Episode 5 - S1-E5

Other mistake: When Hannah/Belle is talking to her "agent" you can see the escort website and Belle's "Enjoy List", a list of acts she is willing to perform, on the agent's computer, however some of the items on that list are mistakes. 1) She has (pardon the language) "cum in mouth" marked with an x for no; but has snowballing marked with a check for yes (you can only see half of it but it is a checkmark not an X). This is a contradiction because snowballing involves "cum in mouth". 2) She has a no marked for "moresomes" yet she does "moresome" as evidenced by the foursome in Episode 7. 3) Belle is so concerned over someone discovering her profession that she worries in the first episode the escort website's pictures aren't pixellated enough to conceal her identity; yet she has both being photographed and being filmed marked as yes.

Gently with the Women - S7-E1

Monster Squad - S7-E41

Continuity mistake: When Tamera knocks on the door and the "boys" are ridiculing her about being a girl and can't enter, Cool Kid says "Fuck Flowers" and they all roar in agreement. If you watch closely you can see Tamera's right hand come up on screen in the bottom right hand corner. However when it cuts to a close up of Tamera, she's gesturing with her left hand. (00:07:00)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When we see Coraline in Mick's vision of when he was taking her dress off at a party, her tattoo is under one of her shoulders (I think it was her left one) but later on in the series we see Morgan/Coraline wipe off the make-up on where her tattoo is...on the opposite side.

Race to the Spaceship/Sandbox Surprise - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: In the sequence where Pig is making a pizza with strange toppings, an ant caries a large bucket of popcorn up the counter. It is flush on its back with no top when on the floor, and the popcorn is bulging out. The ant turns 90 degrees and walks up the counter, and the popcorn thus turns on its side in the air. Not one piece of popcorn falls out or even shifts, despite the pile now pointing out rather than up.

Army Wives picture

Blood and Treasure - S7-E9

Factual error: LtCol Baisley has his name and U.S. Army patches on the wrong side of his uniform. He has the Army patch on his right side instead of on the left. (00:33:00)

Makeshift Solutions - S6-E3

Revealing mistake: When Clara is filming her kids, we see her daughter operate the car. When she's supposed to have put the car in gear and have driven forward, you can see the scenery move in the background, showing that the car was stationary and the camera was just violently moved to the right to simulate the act of the car moving.
