The Guests - S1-E26

Revealing mistake: The actress is playing chord progressions on the piano. As the camera starts to pan away, she takes her hands off the keys entirely - but the piano chords continue to play. (00:18:55)

Third From the Sun - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: No one drinks much lemonade, so there's neither time nor need for Eve to refill the pitcher during the brief cut to a scene on the porch. Yet after she has emptied its contents into the glasses on the tray, the lemonade pitcher refills itself. (00:15:15 - 00:19:10)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Just Lucky, I Guess - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the end, when McGarrett walks around his desk to confront Sloan, the boom shadow sweeps across the wall at the upper left of the screen. (00:47:30)

Perchance to Dream - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Hall races toward the window to jump, the stunt man is just a little too apparent as he leaps, primarily due to a very bad wig. (00:22:40)

Jean G

Perchance to Dream - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Hall leaps through the plate glass window. In the interior shot, he breaks the glass and is 3/4 of the way through the opening (up to his knees) - until we cut to a view from outside the window. Then he's just crashing through at shoulder level. (00:22:45)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Just Lucky, I Guess - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The bad guys are driving a dark green '62 Cadillac - with fins. After Five-O's sharp shooters fire at it, the Caddy hits a concrete wall. In the next shot of the wreck, the green '62 has turned into a black '64 - without fins. (00:42:45 - 00:44:35)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Goes to the Hospital - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: In the hospital corridor, when Stottlemeyer orders Monk to go home, the items on the nurse's station counter shift positions completely every time the camera angle changes. (00:25:30)

Jean G

Factual error: When Richard Collier first arrives in 1912, the woman getting dressed in the hotel room is humming "You Made Me Love You," a song not published until 1913. It was first recorded by Al Jolson in June of 1913. The lady in the hotel shouldn't have known it yet. (00:30:00)

Jean G

The Lonely - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Allenby brings Corey a stack of paperback books. He's holding them with the back covers facing out until the shot cuts, and then the stack of books has reversed itself in his hand: the back covers are now facing inward. (00:20:30)

Jean G

Escape Clause - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Walter crumples the prescription slip and tosses it onto the bed - but in the next shot, it has disappeared. (00:05:15)

Jean G

Brother's Keeper - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: The cut on Darien's forehead changes positions, then vanishes the same day, after he goes home to make the video tape. (00:24:20)

Jean G

Brother's Keeper - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Darien wakes up, following the RNA injection, with his brother's memories, his hair restyles itself several times between takes. (00:11:25)

Forty Feet High and It Kills! - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Wo Fat's lackey drives away from the Chinese pharmacy, his car door reflects the camera crew and set lights. (00:37:45)

Jean G

Continuity mistake: After winning his fight with Guy of Gisbourne, Robin races to Marian's door with his badly bent sword in hand. The moment he enters Marian's chamber, the sword is perfectly straight again. (01:35:00)

Babylon 5 (1994)

The Parliament of Dreams - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: As Lennier is first setting foot on the station, the same extra rides the escalator in the background up twice, even though we never saw him (nor was there time for him to) come down.

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Forty Feet High and It Kills! - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: McGarrett and Victoria watch surfers from the beach. Thanks to the insertion of stock footage, they "see" surfers riding huge 6-foot waves. But in the shots of the actual locale behind them, the ocean is virtually flat. (00:09:30)

Jean G

One for the Angels - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: As the hour is striking midnight, Maggie's toy robot turns itself on and walks past the alarm clock on her bureau. After a cut to Lou and Mr. Death, the scene returns to Maggie's room, and the robot walks past the clock again. (00:22:00)

Jean G

One for the Angels - S1-E2

Trivia: The centerpiece of Lou's sidewalk toy display is a wind-up Robbie the Robot from the film Forbidden Planet. (00:01:05)

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: The cloth pillows stabilizing the moonstone on the lab counter change positions several times between takes. (00:40:15)
