Continuity mistake: Rachael leaves the party with one hairdo, and arrives at Cassandra's place a few minutes later with a completely different one.

Trivia: The seedy motel sequences were shot at the Wampum Court Motel in Sylmar, CA, a 1950s relic that had definitely seen better days. To enhance the fleabag image, two gaudily-painted signs were added for the film, touting "air conditioning" and the deliberately misspelled "kitchins."

Trivia: Thing was played by the hand of actor and magician Christopher Hart. In the TV series, Thing was said to be played by "Itself," but was actually the appendage of Ted "Lurch" Cassidy most of the time.

The Galaxy Being - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As the energy being moves down the city sidewalk, we see its shadow on the concrete. Right beside that, however, we can also see the distinctly-shaped shadow of the camera. (00:35:00)

Stopover in a Quiet Town - S5-E30

Continuity mistake: Bob's cigarette sets the artificial grass on fire, and he rapidly stamps it out. When he finishes extinguishing the flames, the grass is scorched, but intact. He doesn't touch it again, but one shot later, the burned grass and all its ashes have vanished and a huge hole has appeared, revealing the metal mesh underneath. (00:13:50)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

The Box - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: During the stand-off, Big Chicken is standing several inches to McGarrett's left, on the other side of a seam in the concrete wall. When the shot cuts to a closer angle, Chicken is instantly close enough to touch shoulders with McGarrett, and is now blocking the concrete seam. (00:25:30)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

The Face of the Dragon - S1-E17

Factual error: Two deaths by bubonic plague, spread by casual human contact, have Five-O scrambling to prevent an epidemic on Oahu. But the disease isn't spread this way (its vector is fleas on infected rats). And since the introduction of antibiotics in the 1940s, bubonic plague has been imminently curable, so there was no need for panic, other than, of course, to make the episode more dramatic. (00:18:00)

The Incredible World of Horace Ford - S4-E15

Factual error: In the opening scene, Horace painstakingly loads his six-shooter cap pistol with a six-cap round - then shoots his boss with it seven times. (00:00:40)

Death Ship - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: In the final shot of the ship ascending into space, one of the filament lines supporting the model is showing just above the saucer. (00:44:15)

Death Ship - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: Just after the ship re-attains orbit, the shadow of a production crew member moving his arm can be seen on the wall at the upper right of the shot. (00:38:30)

Death Ship - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: When Mason puts the ID card back into the pocket of his dead duplicate, the "corpse" twitches its eyelids. (00:14:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Makes A Friend - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Natalie quizzes Monk on the finer points of ice hockey, a blue teapot sitting on the kitchen island beside her moves itself back and forth several inches between takes. (00:10:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Makes A Friend - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: Monk leaves his front door standing open in anticipation of his new friend's arrival. No one goes near the front hall, but when Hal gets there, he lets himself in by opening a door that has somehow closed itself. (00:10:30 - 00:11:50)

Suggested correction: That wasn't the front door that was open. It was the door to the bathroom that is open, which is on the other end of the hallway.

No. It's the front door.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Makes A Friend - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When the murderer strangles his victim, her music box is dropped on the floor several feet away. Though no one has touched it, the music box is somehow lying only a few inches from her body when the police arrive to investigate. (00:01:20 - 00:04:40)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Meets His Dad - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: When Julie talks to Monk on the phone, her hair is down over her right shoulder but swept back behind her left one. When she hangs up and hands the phone to her mom, the hair is suddenly covering her left shoulder instead, and now her right shoulder is bare. (00:17:15)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Leper - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When the body falls out of the balloon gondola, the weights that were securely tied to it have disappeared. The corpse also changes positions on the ground between shots, even though no one has touched it. (00:37:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Leper - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Randy is desperately trying to pry his teenage acne photo off the doctor's wall. He knocks the photo underneath it crooked, but it rights itself in the next shot. Then he pulls his picture free, making a large hole in the wall, but knocks all the surrounding photos off onto the floor. There's no time lapse, but when he turns around, the fallen photos have all put themselves neatly back up on the wall, and the hole is gone. (00:32:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Meets His Dad - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: Jack's big rig has a huge Christmas wreath on the front grill. When the truck loses its brakes, there's an overhead view of it careening down the road, and the wreath has disappeared. It's back in the next shot, though. (00:34:30)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Leper - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Monk uses paper towels to grab the phone, dragging a length of white paper across the kitchen counter and leaving it there. But when he turns around to talk to Natalie, the counter behind him is bare. The paper towel trail has vanished. (00:05:40)
