Charmed (1998)

Charmageddon - S7-E13

Deliberate mistake: When Zankou and the Charmed Ones force the Avatars to "put the world back" by rewinding time, in the first shot of people waking up note the Jeep in the backround. The problem is the words "Jeep Liberty" are on the spare tire cover in this shot, but in the previous episode "Extreme Makeover World Edition" that spare tire cover is all black because those words were edited out in two shots. The first shot is when that group of people fall asleep, and second shot is when they all wake up the first time. (00:35:15)

Season 1 generally

Deliberate mistake: When the show premiered on March 18th, 1981 Ralph's last name started out as Hinkley, but after a couple of episodes had aired on TV, on March 30th a man named Hinckley shot then U.S. President Reagan and three other people, so in the remaining episodes of season 1 Ralph's last name was changed to Hanley. His last name was changed back to Hinkley in season 2.

I Love Lucy (1951)

I Love Lucy mistake picture

Season 2 generally

Deliberate mistake: In episode "Redecorating" Lucy wins new furniture, then in the next episode "Ricky Loses His Voice" the new furniture's delivered to the apartment, and the new couch has two normal and identical seat cushions. Starting in the next episode "Lucy is Enceinte" until the episode "Lucy Wants New Furniture", in some scenes the couch has the identical short cushions, however, in other scenes one of its seat cushions (depending on the episode, it's either left or right) is much higher than the other. For example, in "Lucy Hires a Maid" the higher seat cushion's on left side while Lucy waits for her lunch, then after Ethel urges Lucy to fire the maid the short cushion's on the left. The uneven cushions are usually seen in scenes with either Desi or another male actor, who sit on the side of the couch which has the higher seat cushion. There are even scenes where both of the seat cushions are the higher ones, such as in "Lucy's Last Birthday."
