Smiler with a Gun - S2-E4

Audio problem: Just before Curry shoots the rattlesnake, Heyes says, "Don't anybody move." But his lips don't move when he says this. (00:11:20)

Smiler with a Gun - S2-E4

Factual error: Heyes and Curry spend months at the mine without any razors or knives. Their beards grow out - but their hair doesn't get any longer. (00:12:00)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: The damage to Stottlemeyer's new car doesn't remain consistent from shot to shot. The dents change configuration and the angle of the torn fender also changes. (00:40:15)

Dark Shadows (1991)

Episode Twelve - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Joshua says that he won't send Naomi away because Collinwood is her home, the actor mispronounces the mansion's name as "Collingwood." Definitely not a character choice: Joshua, who founded the Collins family dynasty, would neither forget nor mispronounce the name of his own estate. (00:14:45)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Three Julies - S6-E13

Character mistake: Julie has just passed her driver's test. At the end, she drives up with two teenage friends in the car and offers the stranded Captain Stottlemeyer a ride. Instead of simply accepting, by-the-book cop Stottlemeyer would be lecturing her. California law prohibits new teenage drivers from having other teens in the car. (00:40:15)

The Prisoner (1967)

It's Your Funeral - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: The cape Monique is wearing disappears when she's in the watch shop, then reappears a few shots later.

The Posse That Wouldn't Quit - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Heyes and Curry stop Belle's wagon, Heyes is holding his hat in his right hand. When the shot changes angles, the hat jumps instantly into his left hand. (00:05:40)

The Prisoner (1967)

It's Your Funeral - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: The towel in Number 6's locker changes colors. When we first see the locker opened, the towel is white. A few shots later, when it's opened again, the folded towel has turned blue.

Jailbreak at Junction City - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: The outlaws all have their hands tied behind their backs. But the one wearing glasses, apparently unaware that he's in the shot, brings both hands up to push the slipping glasses back up on his nose, then quickly puts his hands behind his back again.

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Factual error: When Alice, Heyes and Curry dig up the gold bars, they realistically have to use both hands to lift each one. But Heyes then fills two cloth bags with six bars each, hefts the sacks easily and slings them over his saddle. Conservatively, each of those bags would weigh 180 lbs. - he's just tossed the equivalent weight of two full-grown men over his shoulder onto the horse. For more on just how heavy gold bars are, see: http://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/vchembook/125Adensitygold.html

Dark Shadows (1991)

Episode Ten - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: Willie kneels beside Barnabas' coffin in the secret room. The only opening is the single door behind him, but the light source for the lightning flashes illuminating the room comes from behind the camera, where there should be nothing but a solid wall. (00:10:30)

How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Harry tosses the cloth bag toward the well, it lands on bare ground with a few strands of straw nearby. But in long shot, it's surrounded by heaps of straw. (00:43:30)

How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Plot hole: Heyes convinces the deputy that they're not Heyes and Curry and rightfully pins the bank robbery on Harry, who forced him to break into the safe. But it had been previously stressed that only Heyes could have cracked that particular safe, something the governor knew. So the neatly tied-up ending doesn't really work. The governor would still know that Heyes (whose nitroglycerin method was based on a real bank robbery of the era) opened the safe.

The Day They Hanged Kid Curry (90 min.) - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: In full shot, Curry is leaning against the courtroom wall to the right of the door. When the shot cuts to a close-up, though, he's on the left side of the door. (00:06:00)

How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: In the sheriff's office at the end, Heyes and Curry instantly switch positions between takes. (00:45:40)

The Prisoner (1967)

A Change of Mind - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Watch the Butler standing in the background after the committee exits the meeting room. A very bad edit causes him to jump to a different position (a foot further away than he was before) between shots.

Jean G

How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Harry sets the can of red putty down on the desk in front of Heyes. When he first places it, the label is facing the camera. When the shot cuts to a wider angle, the label has rotated itself 90 degrees and is now facing Heyes. (00:19:40)

Dark Shadows (1991)

Episode Nine - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: At the kitchen table, Willie grabs his milk and starts gulping it down. When the camera angle changes, there's more milk in the glass than there was in the previous shot. (00:27:35)

Dark Shadows (1991)

Episode Nine - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Barnabas enters Josette's room, the door is painted white. When he leaves and Natalie follows, the door has changed to varnished wood. (00:21:15)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

The Last Eden - S3-E10

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of the boom mike's pole rigging follows McGarrett as he passes the ambulance and coroner's wagon. It disappears when the shot cuts to a different angle. (00:37:30)
