Brimstone (1998)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 1-3 "Encore": Stone finds the side window of the blonde woman's house pried partially open. It's parted less than an inch in the wide shot, but in close-up, it's open at least four inches. (00:27:00)

Brimstone (1998)

Heat - S1-E2

Factual error: The Los Angeles police car pulls up to John's loft, which has the address number 923 on the wall. The building across the street is numbered 929. In California (in fact, in the vast majority of the US) address numbers are odd on one side of the street and even on the other. 923 and 929 wouldn't be on opposite sides. (00:29:30)

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: Alice is supposedly playing the guitar while she sings to Charlie in the jail cell. But while her fingers are moving, they aren't forming proper chords on the instrument's strings, nor does her strumming match the music we hear. (00:17:00)

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: While Heyes and Curry talk to Charlie in his cell, Curry's hands change positions on the bars every time the camera angle reverses. (00:04:45)

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Curry's string tie disappears when he and Heyes knock on Alice's hotel room door. It's back a few shots later. (00:19:50 - 00:21:00)

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Charlie tells Alice that he buried the gold near the Mexican border. But when she looks up the location on a map, the map she's holding is of the state of Wyoming (which is nowhere near Mexico). When they go after the gold, however, they're in Joshua Tree Forest, Arizona, which is near the border. (00:23:15)

The Legacy of Charlie O'Rourke - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: When Heyes and Curry send the empty stagecoach off to mislead the posse, the road has several 20th Century tire tracks running across it. (00:29:00)

Never Trust an Honest Man - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: The part in Mr. Harlingen's hair changes sides several times while he's examining the jewels with his son. (00:25:00)

The Fifth Victim - S1-E12

Visible crew/equipment: Curry emerges from the pond into bright sunlight, and the distinctive shadow of the camera is visible against his white shirt. (00:20:20)

Never Trust an Honest Man - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Curry's shaving cream is smeared over his upper lip. Then it isn't. Then it is again. (00:10:40)

Jean G

The Fifth Victim - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Heyes is shot from the right and falls from his horse, grazed on the right side of the head. When he's recovering, however, the wound has moved to the left side of his head. (00:13:00)

Journey from San Juan - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Curry kisses Michelle outside her hotel room. When the camera angle is on him, his right hand is on her shoulder. When it switches to her, his hand is instantly down at her waist. (00:15:10)

Jean G

The Fifth Victim - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: The rifle Curry slings to his saddle when he sets off after Jake disappears during his journey, then reappears just in time for him to use it in getting the drop on Jake. (00:42:40 - 00:44:25)

Jean G

Never Trust an Honest Man - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: In one of the early panoramic shots of the train heading toward the mountains, there are two jet contrails in the sky at the upper right of the screen. (00:07:00)

Jean G

The Fifth Victim - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: Sam, the third victim, is shot and killed while driving his wagon out of town. We see a long shot of him riding away, then we hear the rifle firing. But the camera lingers a bit too long after that - just enough for us to see the wagon continuing on its way, with a perfectly healthy Sam still at the reins. (00:16:40)

Jean G

The Fifth Victim - S1-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When the sheriff and his deputy knock on Rachel's door and she opens it, the glass shows us a studio reflector and some of the camera crew. (00:39:30)

Never Trust an Honest Man - S1-E14

Factual error: For a man of the cloth, the Preacher is remarkably ignorant of one of the best-known passages of the Bible. He says that the 6th Commandment is "thou shalt not steal" and the 8th "thou shalt not kill." It's the other way around.

Never Trust an Honest Man - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: At the end, when Christine's father enters the kitchen, the unmistakable outline of a papered-over electrical outlet is showing on the wall behind him. (00:45:10)

Short Haul - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: During the drive to Mr. Neate's house, the cars in the rear-screen projection keep changing instantly, depending on whether the camera is on Diamond, on O'Malley, or on both of them.

Jean G

Juvenile Jacket - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The apartment manager scares off the street gang attacking Diamond. In full shot, Diamond is leaning over, arms spread across the hood of his car. When it cuts to a tighter two-shot, he's immediately standing straight as he talks to the manager.
