The Terminal (2004)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film when Gupta walks out onto the runway, you see Dixon sitting in front of the CCTV screens. He is seen raising his head to realise what is happening from two different angles in quick succession, never lowering his head back down in between. (01:51:25)

Red Dwarf (1988)

Backwards - S3-E1

Plot hole: If everything goes backwards, shouldn't Kryten and Rimmer have got fired, done their job and then got hired? Rimmer & Kryten discovered that everything was backwards in the cafe earlier in the episode. At the club they did their act and then got fired. Put this 'forwards' and it becomes wrong.

The Town of No Return - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Steed, Mrs Peel and their travelling companion Mr Smallwood arrive at the pub, it is pitch black. However, when Smallwood leaves a few minutes later to go and visit his brother, it is fairly light again. All subsequent shots of him outside continue to be well lit, whilst in the shots looking out from the pub it is dark.

Bart Gets Famous - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: The man conducting the tour of the box factory tells the children that they will not be able to see a finished box, as the boxes are assembled in a separate location. However, moments earlier we saw a flat box going through a machine, and coming out finished.

The Weight Of The World - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Glory challenges Dawn to name one person who can cope with life on earth, there is a close up of Dawn answering "Buffy". In this shot, the black mark (where she has been annointed) that is there before and after, has completely disappeared. (00:24:05)

The Simpsons (1989)

Much Apu About Nothing - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: In the early scene where the Simpsons are gathered around the table to eat, you can see that they are eating slices of pie. However, on some of the long shots, the food on their plates changes and looks more like mashed potato and vegetables. Also, in the same scene, in one shot of Lisa, you can see Bart's hand over her plate, but when the angle changes, it is behind her plate.

The Simpsons (1989)

Brush With Greatness - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bart and Homer find Marge's paintings in the attic, there is a shot of the paintings all stacked up and you can see that the edges of all of them are the same shade of pink as The Front painting. However, when the boys flick through the paintings, the backgrounds and edges are a variety of colours, including pale blue.

Angel (1999)

The Prodigal - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Kate finds her father dead, just after the shot of his neck wounds, she is sitting over him and you can see the father blinking a few times. (00:33:00)

A New Man - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Giles and Ethan Rayne are drinking in the bar, the shots cut between Giles and Ethan frequently. When on Giles, you can see Ethan's hands/arms and his glass in the foreground of the shot, but almost every time the shot switches back to Ethan he's in a different position with no time to have moved. (00:14:40)
