Pretty Little Liars picture

A Person of Interest - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: On the video of Ian supposedly killing Alison, we see her arm fall to the ground with her "Alison" bracelet visible. But in a later scene where Emily watches Ian put his bag in the athletics room, we cut back to the video and Alison's arm suddenly has a sleeve covering up her bracelet. When we see the video again later in the series, her bracelet is visible again.

London Calling - S2-E8

Factual error: Scenes were obviously not filmed in London, more like New England. The vehicle registrations are the right colour, but wrong format.

Continuity mistake: Ava spills coke on her blouse and creates a big circle stain. As she walks to the bathroom, the stain become a long narrow one. When she is leaving the pizza place, the stain is still narrow, but much shorter. (00:21:00 - 00:22:00)

Covert Affairs picture

No Quarter - S1-E4

Other mistake: In this episode one of the characters is seen to be driving a VW Golf. The scene is set in Geneva Switzerland. However an American spec VW Golf is used. Also in backround shots, American vehicles not avalible in Europe are seen. Another scene shows the police race past in two Skoda Rapides. This car has not been made since the early 90's and it is highly unlikely that the Swiss Police would be using these cars still. The shot is an old video that appears to have been shot in an Eastern European country.

Face Off - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: Episode 15, "Faceoff": When the agent fires the hook to get to the roof of the church, it does not reach the balcony. However in a following shot you can see the agent climbing there. (00:10:05)

Alphas picture

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gary is at the end of the table talking about Golf, he's actually seated in front of the table as seen by how he grabs his cup in front of him. In the very next shot, he's no longer sitting in front of the table and is sitting past it.

Strike Back picture

Project Dawn #10 - S2-E10

Plot hole: After Grant finishes her video confession, Latif puts the video recorder in his cargo pant pocket. A few scenes later, he's blown up without ever having taken the video camera out of his pocket. He was at the epicenter of the explosion and he and his clothes were very much on fire, which should have completely destroyed the video camera and its recording.

The Deep picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In episode 3 or 4, one of the characters is knocked out and lying on the floor in the Russian sub. He is on the 'left' side of the shot most times he is shown, but occasionally he's on the right.

Chase picture

Havoc - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When the bomb under the bus is being defused, it's counting down and beeping once every second. We see the timer at 0:45, then cut to the face of the woman defusing it - counting the beeps when we cut back it should be on 0:45, but it's jumped up to 1:06. Camera pans down to her face, then back to the bomb, and it's now on 0:43, but going by the beeps it should be on 0:36. We cut away again for 5 more beeps, cut back and the bomb's only just ticking onto 0:41.

Persons Unknown picture

The Edge - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the hostages try to get some rubble to catch fire, they find that everything is covered in some flame retardant stuff. Yet, in the very first episode one of the very first things they do is to make a small fire to get the fire alarm going.
