Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: Dr. Brice's name tag is partially tucked under her collar when she's inside the lab. When she walks into the corridor, the tag has shifted position and is outside the collar. Later, back in the lab, the tag keeps changing from over to under her collar repeatedly. (00:32:50 - 00:36:50)

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: In the lab, Anderson collapses with his arms crossed above his head. When the shot cuts, his arms are suddenly uncrossed. (00:21:30)

Jean G

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: General Stocker falls into a lunar quicksand pit and starts to sink. One arm disappears beneath the sand, but in the next shot, both his arms are outstretched and waving for help. (00:04:25)

Revealing mistake: At the end, when Guy loses the sword fight with Robin Hood, his body topples over a parapet and falls to the stone floor below. In the initial shot of him falling, it's a stunt man (who apparently broke his ankle in the process, according to the dvd commentary), but the next shot of the body landing makes the use of a dummy a little too obvious: the "corpse" bounces back up several inches before settling to the floor. (01:30:00)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

To Hell with Babe Ruth - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Nagata breaks into the boarded-up house, he walks through a doorway full of cobwebs, covering his black suit with white dust and webs. But when the shot changes, his suit is suddenly perfectly clean again. (00:10:00)

Jean G

Second Chance - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: The alien's torn spacesuit sleeve somehow mends itself, but then is torn again a few shots later. (00:46:00 - 00:47:50)

Jean G

The Invisibles - S1-E19

Factual error: The General brandishes a six-shooter pistol with an enormous silencer attached to it. He's a career military guy who should definitely know better, so he gets a failing grade in Basic Weaponry 101. Silencers don't work on revolvers. (00:34:50)

Jean G

The Camp - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When the van races up to the hospital entrance and the door opens, it reflects a clear image of several film crew members, including the man holding the pole rigging for the boom mike. (00:18:20)

Jean G

The Bellero Shield - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: In the lab, the alien's arms change positions instantaneously between shots. (00:13:50)

Jean G

The Invisibles - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: The injured Spain falls and tries to crawl away from the alien, leaving handprints in the dust on the floor. Just to his left, you can see several handprints already on the floor from previous takes. (00:47:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Is On The Air - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: As the murderer is arrested at the end, the collar of his jacket changes from turned up in back to turned down, etc., several times between takes. (00:39:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Visits a Farm - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: Natalie carries a large box full of house plants into Monk's kitchen and starts placing them one by one on the counter while he answers the phone. Each time the shot changes, a large red flower switches itself from the left side of one plant to the right side and back again, and sometimes disappears altogether. (00:09:00)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

A Thousand Pardons -- You're Dead! - S2-E1

Factual error: Danno, who's posing as a Marine, has hair that's far too long to be permitted in the Corps. In fact, all of the Marines in this episode have non-regulation (too long) haircuts. 'T'was the same then as it is now: US Marines are given "buzz jobs," and hair longer than an inch is not allowed.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Is At Your Service - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: At the end, the crime is reconstructed and in flashback, we see and hear the murderer makes his fake 911 call. But his words do not match the 911 tape played earlier in the episode. (00:40:00)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

A Thousand Pardons -- You're Dead! - S2-E1

Factual error: At the end, Simms shoots at McGarrett and is instantly riddled with bullets from the 8 or 9 cops who shoot back. Yet, when McGarrett walks over to the body, there are no holes - and no blood - marring Simms' pristine uniform. (00:48:00)

Jean G

What About Bob? - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: At the end, Justin's doppelganger lies down in the coffin and "dies," leaving the lid open. The camera then cuts to a wider shot - and the coffin lid has somehow closed itself. (00:37:00)

Jean G

Hair of the Dog - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: After Bob's ghost is summoned in the park, Dresden walks off screen right, carrying Bob's skull in both hands. But in the next shot, the skull has vanished. Dresden has neither a bag nor pockets large enough to have put it in. (00:07:00)

Jean G

Soul Beneficiary - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Dresden is missing, and Murphy comes to his office for clues. The right side window shade on the front door is pulled all the way down, and still is when Murphy leaves. But when she returns with a rescued Dresden at the end, the right door shade is halfway up, even though no one has been there to raise it. (00:40:30)

The Golden Noose - S12-E15

Plot hole: Nadira hides from the bad guy behind a screen - with her feet in plain view. Then, after capturing her, the bad guy inexplicably lets her go, even though her knowledge poses a danger to him. Given that he's killed without a qualm before, this makes no sense at all.

Murder is a Taxing Affair - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: A bad matte superimposed over Cavel's rearview mirror makes McGarrett and Danno, who are actually in a car behind him, appear to be sitting in his back seat instead.
