Shameless (2011)

Citizen Carl - S10-E7

Visible crew/equipment: Carl is walking along the reporters trying to get their attention. At the bottom of the screen is the shadow of the camera filming the shot. It moves as the scene moves. At one point there is even a boom mic shadow on the right. While this may be a member of the news crew, it's likely the boom mic for the show as the reporter has a mic of her own and the shadow follows Carl.

Ace Degenerate - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Johnny's car gets hit, and he comes up and starts banging on the windows. When the girls drive off, the rear window is down, when it wasn't prior.

Continuity mistake: When the gym teacher is drawing on the chalkboard, the kids ask him to draw the whole woman. He does, and the word "ovaries" that he had written disappears. It reappears differently in a second cut.

1941 (1979)

Continuity mistake: When Captain Loomis shows up in Barstow, he gets out of the vehicle and its lights are on. When he's standing in front of the car and we see him from behind, the lights are off. They are then on again when he gets fired on.

The Mask (1994)

Revealing mistake: Dorian and his men are watching what we're assuming is a live feed from Tina at the bank. At one point the "video" stops as you can see a guard freeze. From that point on the video is a still picture.

Suggested correction: If you look at the top of the screen showing the bank video, you can see a multicolored distortion. This shows that they paused the video feed.

We don't see them pause the video.

We also don't see their hands, so one of them easily could have paused it.

McLintock! (1963)

Visible crew/equipment: When Kathrine is trying to get away from GW, she runs into an alleyway and the camera pushes in on her. Its shadow becomes visible on the left side. Fairly obvious as it hangs there.

The X-Files (1993)

Unruhe - S4-E4

Factual error: The episode is supposed to take place in Traverse City, Michigan, United States. Mountains are visible in the sequence when Mulder is chasing after the killer on foot. The show was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Something Beautiful - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The sky changes multiple times during the opening sequence. It goes from clear and sunny to much cloudier depending on the angle.

The X-Files (1993)

Home - S4-E2

Audio problem: Scully asks the deputy if the vests are necessary and he replies in the same scene. His mouth is way off from his reply. It's likely this is because the show was shown on 4:3 aspect ratio televisions at the time, and he would simply not be visible. Because the show was shot in 16:9, he is very much visible on modern televisions and the mistake is incredibly obvious.

The Taking of Dispatch 9-1-1 - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When all the firefighters and EMS teams are coordinating in the big dirt parking lot with the view of downtown LA behind them, the sun changes several times. Its either later in the day or earlier, depending on the angle. Look at the scenes with Athena talking to another character. The sun is in front of them. Cut, and the sun is overhead.

Hop (2011)

Revealing mistake: When E.B. is running by the Hollywood sign and we see his shadow on the sign, at one point the shadow doesn't touch the ground when it should. It hovers.

Hop (2011)

Visible crew/equipment: When James Marsden arrives at the house he is watching, he hurriedly opens the door and the camera pushes in on him. The reflection of a crew member can be seen in the left window. It's clear enough you can see the person turn their head.
