All of Us Are Dead picture

Episode #1.4 - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Lee is being interrogated, at one point (after the detective says "Are you crazy?") the detective walks towards the large two-way mirror and you can see a clear reflection of a cameraman in the lower part of the mirror. (00:27:31)

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds picture

The Serene Squall - S1-E7

Other mistake: The episode begins with the Enterprise unable to contact in timely fashion the Federation, because there are 2 days of delay in communications, which puts Pike in a bind since apparently he needs authorization to get in non-Federation space (which kinda undermines the premise of the show). However, later in the episode, the Enterprise contacts the Vulcan facility on Omicron Lyrae without the slightest difficulty or delay.

Continuity mistake: We see a zombie (Barry) cuffed to a pole in a bathroom. A few dramatic cello strokes later, there's a close-up of Zombarry ripping his hand off to facilitate eating Jade's face. Zombarry lunges at Jade and his hand is back. (00:24:20)

Suggested correction: From S1xE2, "The Devil You Know." Perhaps use pause and/or play it in slow motion. In the closeup of him "ripping his hand" it's not his entire hand, bones and all, that is "ripping off" at the wrist. It's actually only the hand's skin layer surface, nails included, that comes loose and slides off, leaving the skin-glove hand dangling from the handcuff. After this, the actor's hand has the appearance (kind of meh) of a skinless hand, which is most noticeable when Barry attacks Melinda.

Reacher picture

Spoonful - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: A woman approaches Oscar Finlay when he's having a beer at the bar. She asks him "What do you do?" and his hand is at the bottom of the glass, only to be at the top of the glass in the reverse shot. It happens again as the two different angles alternate. (00:36:05)

Remarriage & Desires picture

Episode #1.2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Yoo-hee is looking at photos on her phone, in one shot, she is shown zooming in on a photo. When this happens, her little finger is placed against the bottom of her phone. In the next shot, her little finger is placed against the side of her phone. (00:16:17)

Trigger Point picture

Show generally

Factual error: Detective Superintendent Hamilton has red fabric within the crowns on her rank insignia. This would be correct for most British police forces, but the Metropolitan Police uses blue fabric instead.

The Dropout picture

Green Juice - S1-E3

Factual error: The CBP officers are using handheld metal detectors to conduct a pat down search. CBP have never used them as all pat down searches are done by the officers using their hands. (00:01:24)

Tokyo Vice picture

Show generally

Factual error: Jake and Miyamoto go to an establishment where there are girls dancing on stage. The girls are first dancing to "Motivation" by Kelly Rowland, released in 2011, and "Aly Walk With Me" by The Raveonettes, released in 2007. But, this scene takes place in 1999.

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty picture

Invisible Man - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Jack McKinney is lying in his hospital bed wearing his glasses when he is practising tying his shoe laces. He flings the shoe in disgust, at which time Jerry Buss walks in and hands the shoe to McKinney, whose glasses are now on the table.

Bent - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: They are driving down the freeway when a shot reveals that the check engine light is on and it also looks as if the 'door open' warning light is illuminated. The latter is probably because the film crew have the rear door open for filming. (00:23:47)
