Preacher (2016)

See - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cassidy asks Preacher Custer "who taught you how to fight like that?" He gestures with his left hand, but in mid-sentence the scene cuts and Cassidy is lowering his pointed right hand as he finishes the question.

Jonny Quest (1964)

Pursuit of the Po-Ho - S1-E4

Plot hole: Dr. Quest is speaking through the Dragonfly's speakers to the Po-Hos as they fly over the jungle, telling them he is their air God and is angry the tribe has taken hostages. Quest could have told the Po-Hos to just release the hostages, rather than putting himself in danger later on by getting captured.

Houdini (2014)

Show generally

Character mistake: At Houdini's performance for the Kaiser, a German officer with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel (Oberstleutnant) is asked to assist. Houdini at first correctly addresses him as Lieutenant Colonel, but then incorrectly refers to him as Lieutenant several times after that.

Trivia: The real Battle of the Bulge lasted from December 16, 1944 to January 25, 1945. The movie makes it seem like it lasted a few days, hence the disclaimer at the end of the film.

Gotham (2014)

Season 2 generally

Revealing mistake: The glue holding the beard to actor B.D. Wong's (Dr. Hugo Strange) face is always visible.

Trivia: The tank models used by the German commanders at their headquarters look just like the actual King Tiger and Sherman tanks used by both sides during the late part of the war, whereas the tanks used in the film look nowhere near like actual German and American tanks used during the battle.

Star Trek (1966)

Star Trek mistake picture

Catspaw - S2-E7

Factual error: Kirk, McCoy, and Spock are chained to the dungeon wall, with McCoy noticing he is next to a skeleton, also chained. This is incorrect, as a skeleton's bones are held together by cartilage, which would rot over time. Therefore, the skeleton would not be hanging intact, but would be a pile of bones on the floor.

Factual error: At German Army headquarters, the General tells Hessler of the new Tiger tanks that will be used in the offensive, which takes place mid-December 1944. Presumably, these are the Tiger II (King or Royal Tiger) models. At this point in the war, "King" Tigers were not new, having fought against the British and Canadians in Normandy back in July of 1944, and against the Americans at Aachen in September of 1944.

Continuity mistake: In the initial German panzer attack against the Americans, a German tank 104's left side track and road wheels are damaged by a bazooka shell, resulting in a missing front road wheel and a loose/sagging track. However, when the tank turns off the road and goes down the slope, the left track is taut and the missing road wheel has magically appeared.

Scott215

Stupidity: Staff Sergeant Duquesne is tossing and flipping rifle grenades before affixing them to his rifle to launch against the German tanks. A battle-hardened no-nonsense sergeant like Duquesne would never waste valuable time showing off, and would definitely not flip or toss around explosive ordnance like rifle grenades.

Trivia: The "Malmedy Massacre" actually occurred in the small hamlet of Baugnez at the crossroads where highway N62 leads to Malmedy and is 4 kilometers southeast of Malmedy proper. The massacre is called the "Malmedy Massacre" because Malmedy was the closest large village in the area and on a major road.

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Continuity mistake: Big Joe gets out of his jeep, salutes Captain Maitland, and converses about the upcoming time off for the men. Behind Big Joe is one of his half tracks and he is on Maitland's right. The scene cuts and Maitland's "liberated" yacht is behind Big Joe and he is directly in front of Maitland.

Revealing mistake: A blank firing adaptor (BFA) is visible on the muzzle as the men set up the .30 caliber machinegun.

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Trivia: The filmmakers got most of their vehicles and equipment from the Yugoslavian army, as they still had WW2 vehicles in their current inventory. The communist government of Broz Tito was more than happy to rent out their usage to the filmmakers for the extra cash.

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of the camera filming the scene is visible on the hood of the jeep as it rolls down the road.

Jonny Quest (1964)

Pursuit of the Po-Ho - S1-E4

Other mistake: It is established that Drs. Quest and Hartman speak the Po-Ho's language, but when they are captured, Dr. Hartman is translating to Dr. Quest how the Po-Hos are going to torture them.

Men in War (1957)

Factual error: Montana introduces himself as Sergeant First Class Montana, but his helmet and sleeve insignia shows the rank of Staff Sergeant.

Star Trek (1966)

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: In the close up of Sylvia, she is standing between Kirk and Spock, who are very close to her. The long shot of her shows Spock further away from her, to the left.

The Americans (2013)

Dinner for Seven - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Paige and Elizabeth walk into a parking lot, immediately passing the front of a sedan parked near the parking lot entrance. However, the scene changes to their front and the same sedan is parked further in, as the duo take a long time before passing the same car.

Jonny Quest (1964)

Pursuit of the Po-Ho - S1-E4

Stupidity: While flying over the jungle in the Dragonfly, Dr. Quest uses the Dragonfly's speakers to tell the Po-Ho tribe he is their Air God and is angry for the tribe taking hostages. While he was at it, Quest should have ordered the Po-Ho's to release the hostages.
