Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Melinda is at the VFW trying to get information on Paul Evans, she and Joe are alone with his wife's ghost, and after Joe tells Melinda that she can come by anytime for scintillating conversation, it cuts to a shot facing her and we can see equipment movement at the bottom right side of the screen.

McLintock! (1963)

Visible crew/equipment: Right after Mr. Jones punches Young Ben down into the clay mud pit it cuts to GW climbing up out of the pit, and when GW reaches the top there are men standing in the background at the left side of the screen, at least one of whom is wearing modern-day clothing.

McLintock! (1963)

Continuity mistake: During the crazy brawl at the clay mud pit, after Kate pokes GW with her hat pin, when she falls backward into the pit and starts sliding down Kate's wearing black Mary Jane type flats, but when she reaches the bottom she's wearing heels.

Excessive Forces - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: After Jim and Aiden surprised Melinda with the new SUV Melinda drives off in the red vehicle, but when Aiden and Jim do their fist bump it cuts to a closeup of Jim, and the red SUV is still parked beside Jim.

The Andy Griffith Show mistake picture

Opie's First Love - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Opie and Arnold rush into the house and tell Andy and Aunt Bee about the party, in the shots facing the boys we can see the reflection in the mirror behind them, and there's a lamp atop the credenza, but in the shots facing Andy and Aunt Bee that lamp doesn't exist.

The Darling Fortune - S7-E6

Revealing mistake: While Goober is up in the tree with the fake owl, when Andy and the Darlings leave the house they are standing on the porch, and after seeing the 'second omen' the Darlings leave the porch and head to their pickup truck, but what's funny is that we can see their reflections in the window behind Andy as they all walk off camera, turn around and just stand there, and we can still see those actors' reflections in the shots facing Andy and Aunt Bee even as the Darlings supposedly drive off.

Continuity mistake: On the airplane, the shark bites off April's hand at about the wrist area, but when Fin pulls the gun in April's hand out of the dead shark, the severed limb is an entire arm up to the elbow.

Trivia: In Ben's taxi there's a rubber shark snout with teeth hanging from the rearview mirror. Ben is also the name of the fisherman in Jaws, whose decapitated head pops out underwater. Taxi driver Ben is even dressed similarly to the fisherman character in Jaws. In this movie taxi driver Ben is played by Judd Hirsch, who starred on the 70s-80s TV show Taxi, along with Christopher Lloyd and Danny DeVito.

Continuity mistake: At the start, Fin and April are seated over the aircraft's wing and the cockpit is located ahead of them on the same deck, but in the exterior shots of the aircraft the flight deck's location is on the upper level.

Continuity mistake: While on the 7 train, when Fin looks out the last car's window and sees the flooding and oncoming sharks, as he shouts, "We're in trouble!" in the closeup we see the door has certain stickers and markings and there's an advertising poster on the wall, but when it cuts to the wide shot it's all changed.

Factual error: When they're all on the 7 it makes an emergency stop at the 96 Street station, but that's impossible since that line only travels cross town along 42 Street, it doesn't go uptown to 96th.

Continuity mistake: When the 7 train comes to an emergency stop, the tiled wall beside the tracks read Grand Central, but on the platform the pillars read 96 Street.

Other mistake: While Fin and the others are on the subway, it keeps cutting to show about 15 people waiting on the platform at Grand Central, and nearly every one of those extras are also seen as passengers aboard the 7 with Fin, in different subway cars.

Sharknado 2: The Second One mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When April's lying on the gurney, just as she's wheeled through the doorway it cuts to the closeup as the nurse turns to block Fin from entering the ER, and behind the nurse we see the gurney still being turned and wheeled into the room, but April has vanished.

Other mistake: The guy eating Subway is at the 96 Street station platform, as seen on the wall behind the bench. The 7 train passes that station and travels on, but later when the train makes the emergency stop, it's at 96 Street.

Revealing mistake: After Fin, Martin, and the rest get what they need in the Times Square area, they get in the cab and drive off, and just as we hear on the news "Moments ago the water spout came ashore and devastated the UN," in this exterior shot we can see the taxi's back tire as it's driving down the street, but the tire's not actually moving. Presumably the taxi is on a flatbed being driven by crew while filming from this angle, hence the tire being stationary.

Continuity mistake: After April sneaks out of her hospital room, it cuts to the taxi with Fin, and the cab pulls over to the curb at the corner of Broadway and West 48, but in the closeups they're in an entirely different area - note all the buildings, then in the wide shot they're back on Broadway.

Revealing mistake: When the stewardess asks April to sign her copy of the book entitled "How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters..." it's a thin book, and in the closeup as April autographs the page we can read the text and it's actually one of the versions of the "Samsung Galaxy Tab...For Dummies" book, not April's book. Also notice when Kelly Ripa shows April's book to the audience, it's now at least 4x as thick.

Sharknado 2: The Second One mistake picture

Other mistake: When Lady Liberty's head rolls down the street behind Ellen, Mora, and Polly, it's a very distinctive street and there's a large white storefront sign 'Aleva' over a green awning that they all pass. Then after they drive off in the truck they're driving down that same street, even from the same direction, with that enormous head still after them. Additionally, that building with the 'Aleva' storefront and its awning has simply vanished the second time around.

Visible crew/equipment: When Fin and Skye get to the hotel's roof, just before they set their bags down and then also when they rush to the glass railing, we can see the reflections of crew members on the surface of the glass safety railings.
