Star Trek (1966)

Video

Continuity mistake: When Buster approaches the table, we see the glass is about 1/3 full. Next shot it's 2/3 full. Then it's picked up by the chap with the goatee, But it reappears on the table at "weapon." Next, at the wide shot, it's empty, (as are all the glasses, also the other glasses were full, now they are empty).

Continuity mistake: In the saloon scene, Buster sits at the table, then later stands up. He is right next to the table. Then we see a wider side shot, where he and his chair have teleported away from the table. He does his kicks then he is back close by the table again.

Submarine Sunk Here - S1-E10

Other mistake: Aside from the error of having mines so densely packed and so close to the bottom so deep, there is no possible way the Seaview could have settled to the bottom while passing through this minefield without being destroyed. (00:48:00)
