Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (1) - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: The items on the campsite table change positions radically just before Monk leaps up and knocks it over. Nothing is in the same place that it was just one shot previously. (00:22:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Is on the Run (1) - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: Natalie's "smoothie" is an extremely unappetizing pitcher full of dark brown glop. But when she pours it out into a glass, it has turned white. (00:33:00)

Rough Riders (1997)

Factual error: In Nash's voice-over at the end, he mentions that President Roosevelt is now in poor health. The subtitle has just identified the year as 1920. Theodore Roosevelt died in 1919.

The Popskull - S4-E17

Revealing mistake: When Diamond is driving with Ted, his wife and their dog in his convertible, the rear-view mirror, which was there earlier, is missing. The shaky rear-screen projection makes it even more obvious that the car is a studio mock-up with the mirror removed to make the actors' faces more visible.

The Popskull - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: The bad guy backhands Ted, striking him across the right side of his face. Later, when Diamond questions him, Ted has bruises on the left side of his face.

The Popskull - S4-E17

Visible crew/equipment: While the gangsters are forcing the bar owner to buy their liquor, the boom shadow moves across the top of the shipping crates.

Night Gallery (1970)

Lone Survivor - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When the ship's captain is questioning the survivor, the man is sitting up with the iron bedstead behind him. When the shot cuts, he's suddenly lying flat with his head on the pillow.

The Fine Art of Murder - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: Diamond comes in to an alley and sits up in front of a white crate. When the angle changes, he sits up again, and now the crate behind him is black.

Rough Riders (1997)

Visible crew/equipment: While Teddy Roosevelt is gathering information on casualties in the first battle, a microphone pops into the shot at the lower left.

Dead to the World - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Diamond pulls his car up across the street from Sutro & Son, the building behind him is in shadow. In the next shot, as he parks, it's in bright sunlight. When he gets out and crosses the street, the shadows are back.

One Dead Cat - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: Diamond is backing his convertible up to drive away from the crime scene. He turns to look behind him and places his right arm on the top of the seat. When the shot cuts to a wider angle, his arm is suddenly in a different position, draped all the way over the back of the seat.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Factual error: Monk deflects the policeman's rifle shot and the bullet hits Stottlemeyer's car. But the gun fires just as Monk pushes it aside, and the car is behind them. There's nothing that could deflect the bullet back toward them, so at that angle, there's no way the shot could have struck the car. (00:35:50)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Visible crew/equipment: At the end, as Monk is summing up what happened, the shadow of the boom rigging intrudes into the shot on the right, against the backrest of the big green chair. (00:36:25)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: In the police station, Julie's hair is neatly combed over her left shoulder. Then it's disarrayed and partially falling over her right shoulder, too. Then it's neat and only on the left side again. (00:27:45)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Visible crew/equipment: At the end, as George is arrested, equipment shadows can be seen moving across Disher's back. In the reverse angles, there's nothing behind him but the window, and nothing's moving in that. (00:38:00)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: The broken side mirror that a distraught Stottlemeyer finds dangling from his damaged car wasn't there when Natalie pulled up to the first crime scene. And it disappears again when Natalie runs back to the car and races off to the second crime scene. (00:03:10 - 00:07:15)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Joins a Cult - S6-E11

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Goes to the Bank - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: The living statue street performer holds a water bottle in his left hand while Randy questions him. When his alarm goes off and the shot cuts, the bottle jumps to his right hand. (00:08:15)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Meets the Playboy - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Dexter places the sapphire necklace on Amber at a completely crooked angle. When the shot cuts, though, it has instantly straightened and centered itself.
