Act II - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: During "Brand New Day", at one point, Dr. Horrible stabs a picture of Captain Hammer attached to a dartboard with a handful of darts, all right in the center of the picture.

The Pack - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Mitchell first visits McNair's van, Mitchell's reflection is visible in the window on the left side of the screen during the shot where he first opens the van door. The vampire lore of the show informs the viewer many, many times that vampires (such as Mitchell) and ghosts cannot be seen in reflections, pictures, or videos (their image "cannot be captured"). The reflection can be seen for roughly 20 seconds. (00:23:20)
