The Brady Bunch (1969)

The Private Ear - S3-E9

Factual error: About 1/3 through the show, Greg has to talk to Marcia and asks Peter to leave. On the way out Peter stops to start recording on the tape recorder. He only pushes the play button. He would have had to push the red record and play button to record their conversation.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: If you look at the marble patterns on the walls, they are all exactly the same from floor to floor. Also the bricks oddities on the stairway match from floor to floor. They change lights, elevator tape etc. but it's the same floor used over and over as different floors.

Frasier (1993)

Leapin' Lizards - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: Halfway through the episode, the new station manager says she has to fire someone. If you look at the top of the screen by the white box on the wall, you can see the boom mike.

Scary Movie 4 (2006)

Revealing mistake: Halfway through the movie, with the crashed plane, the aircraft engine is actually running backwards.

A Matter of Justice - S8-E1

Factual error: About 45 minutes into the episode, the girls' car stalls because the alternator's wire has been removed to cause this. For a car to stall like this, the battery has to be heavily drained which it would wind up being. When the killer comes up to the car, he tells her to try and start the car. She does and it turns over but doesn't start. The battery would never have enough amperage to turn over the car if it didn't have enough to keep the motor running.

Frasier (1993)

Hot Ticket - S6-E4

Character mistake: In the last minute of the show, Frasier and Niles set to leave the bar. Frasier puts money on the bar to pay and the wife comes over and talks to them. Frasier moves the remaining money to his other hand. You can see his hands slightly twitching, and he accidentally drops the money on the floor, but acts like he is putting it in his pocket instead of picking it up, and leaves.

Factual error: About an hour into the movie, while Remo is choking the guy in the car,a meter maid comes up and threatens to hit him with her nightstick. Meter maids in NYC don't carry nightsticks or any other weapons. They barely want them to carry pens. Also, she's repeatedly called officer, they aren't officers either.

Continuity mistake: When Remo swings out on the pipe at the Statue Of Liberty, in the close-ups, his fingers are in the top of the pipe holding on. In the far away shots, he is holding on around the coupling about 1/2 foot down from the top of the pipe.

The Other Guys (2010)

Character mistake: Will Ferrell is talked into shooting his gun at the ceiling. Keaton comes from his office and takes his gun and gives him a wooden one. When he takes the real gun, he unloads the magazine from the gun but fails to remove the round in the chamber. He's a cop, he should know how to safely handle a gun.

The Delta Force (1986)

Revealing mistake: 10 minutes into the movie, the hijacker is at the cockpit cabin door and forces the stewardess to have the captain open it. If you look behind the hijacker at the main cabin door, you can see light coming through it on the upper right each time they show him from the front. It's a sealed plane door, there wouldn't be any light coming through.

The Brotherhood - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: About 20 minutes in, the cops have a newspaper with the headline about the two guys they killed. They turn to page two which has a story about the next guy they are planning to kill. If you look at the picture, it is glued onto the story page. The left side is lifted. The actor must have been hired after the printing.

I Love Lucy (1951)

Lucy and Superman - S6-E13

Revealing mistake: While Lucy is out on the ledge, if you look at the pipe as it runs from above the ledge to below it, the two pieces of pipe don't line up. They are off about the full diameter of the pipe. Also when the pipe pulls out, it's obvious the pipe is on a hinge at the bottom and not really attached to the lower pipe. Later, there is also no stream of water falling from above where the pipe was supposed to be connected as a drain even though it is pouring out.

Roseanne (1988)

Out of the Past - S8-E15

Factual error: 1/4 through the show, Darlene, Becky, David and Becky's husband are playing Scrabble. Becky's husband puts down "oxygen" on the board in the lower corner with the "O" covering the triple word square. David is counting up the score and says the "X" is on the triple letter box, and totals the points up to 99. The problem is there is no triple letter box next to the triple word box or even on the outside edges of the board.

Seinfeld (1990)

The Statue - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, Kramer acts like a cop to get back the statue. The door is almost completely closed. Just before he leaves, the door is suddenly open about one foot, even though it hasn't been touched yet.

The Seven-Ups (1973)

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene with the kids in the street, they show Roy Schneider's car pass the kids who are scrambling to the sidewalk. From the far end of the street they show the cop killer's car, just as it begins to turn off the street. In the background, the kids are in the street, but Roy's car is not seen on the street. The car should have been on the close side of the kids.

Continuity mistake: Between 15-20 minutes into the show, Fran and her mom are talking in the kitchen. There's a box of Wheat Toasties on the counter. The top flap goes back and forth between folded up and folded down depending on the shot.
