Chez Mammy - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: When Cathy and Gaston return to the house to find Betty, Father Damien and Annette Curtain high from the chocolate brownies, she asks where Mrs. Brown is and she tells Cathy that she is upstairs wandering around since she is high. Cathy then tells her to come back downstairs and Mrs. Brown replies a few seconds later saying she is coming back down and flies down the stairs in the chair lift. Before Mrs. Brown comes back down, she can actually be seen sitting in the chair lift at the top of the staircase, from the moment where she tells Cathy she is upstairs to the moment where she says she is coming, waiting for the cue to come downstairs.

Prisoner of War - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: In the first scene, young people are removing scrap from a rooftop. The camera angle changes to look over the rescue team and back at the roof. In the distance, visible in the upper left of the screen, a Canadian flag is waving in the breeze. Also a short while later the camera looks back over the team away from the children, and the CN Tower appears to be in the background. Like many TV shows, Falling Skies was filmed in Canada, but the events are supposed to take place in Massachusetts, USA. (00:00:25 - 00:02:00)
