Jaws (1975)

Jaws mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During numerous close-ups on the bridge deck, such as when Brody is behind the wheel, as Hooper shouts, "Our injectors got scored from the salt water in the fuel," the three large gauges over the steering column are seen. The center gauge has a wide shiny chrome trim, and a partial black face with a silver center. However, in the extreme close-up of the gauge panel, it is an entirely different style RPM gauge, and it now has a blackish rusty trim, and a solid black face. (01:41:00)

Jaws (1975)

Visible crew/equipment: After tying off the cleats, the shark pulls Orca causing it to tip. As Hooper and Brody fall backwards onto the deck, in this close-up the white tape mark is visible on the black anti-slip mat - where Quint will land the machete in a subsequent shot. (01:43:00)

The Greater Good (a.k.a. Sides) - S1-E21

Exodus (2) - S1-E24

Revealing mistake: After Charlie receives a large gash on his forehead, from Danielle's trap, Sayid tries to seal it. When Sayid pours gunpowder in the cut, he leaves a large thick trail beside Charlie's eye and on his cheek, which he does not wipe away. There is a tight close-up of Sayid igniting the gunpowder with the flame. The gunpowder beside his eye and on his cheek should have seared his skin, but it does not. The only severe wound Charlie has later is the closed charred wound on his forehead, and though he does wipe his face back at the cave, the skin on his cheek and beside his eye are fine. (00:51:25)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: On the airplane, the same passengers are seen in numerous shots with different main characters, and purportedly Kate and Marshal Mars (row 25) are in the same cabin on the opposite side of Jack, Rose and Locke (rows 23 & 24), yet are not seen in shots where they should be seen - though in shots of Jack and Rose, during the turbulance, the same woman and man (behind Locke) fly up as in the Kate and marshal shot. Some examples: When Kate and the marshal are shown during the turbulance, note the red-haired man with the black shirt beside the marshal and other men behind, and in one shot of Kate and the marshal, a woman and man both fly up to the ceiling of the cabin. In some shots of the turbulance, when the red-haired man is seen, the marshal and Kate are gone, replaced by other passengers. Just before the tail section breaks off, men behind the red-haired guy have either changed seats or disappeared, and so forth. Row numbers seen on the luggage compartments overhead are inconsistent with passenger seating. Such as when the tail section breaks off, the man is pulled out from row 26, yet the number above reads 13, or when Claire boards the numbers overhead are 20, 21, 22, yet Jack is in row 23, which is the second row behind the wall. The interiors of the Oceanic airplane also significantly differ in various shots. One example - the seats on the airplane have blue square velcro coverings on the passengers' seat headrests, and long, wide magazine racks on the divider wall behind Locke, but when they carry Locke onto the airplane, they don't exist.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Charlie, Kate and Jack are in the nose wreckage, to find the transceiver, there is a shot in first class, facing the cockpit, showing the glass wall with the decorative circular design. When Charlie is aboard the flight, running from the stewards, he stands beside that glass wall, and the circular pattern is reversed. Neither shot is flipped.

Pilot (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Charlie leaves his seat on the airplane, as he is followed by the stewards, he walks through economy (blue stripe seats), then walks through business class (grey stripe seats and roomier) - where Boone and Shannon sit. But, in Charlie's next close-up, when the plane shakes, he leans on the blue seat in front of him, which he already passed and is farther back in the plane's cabin.

The Greater Good (a.k.a. Sides) - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When Sayid speaks to CIA Agent Melissa Cole after Essam's death, in the first shot the body laden stretcher is wheeled to the vehicle and the back door is opened. When Agent Cole says, "Plane ticket and walking around money," in the background the stretcher is gone and the door is closed. But when Sayid asks, "What happens to his body?" the stretcher reappears as the body is being put into the open back door. (00:40:40)

Exodus (1) - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When Sun and Jin sit at the table at the airport, both cups' lids are on properly, yet for the "spill shot" one lid is askew, and Sun's hand changes between shots to be in perfect position to knock the cup over. Things on the table instantly change positions, such as the clear plastic croissant container that jumps back onto the red tray. This applies to Exodus 2, as well. (00:12:10)

Continuity mistake: At the airport, after Sun spills coffee on Jin, as he heads to the lavatory the large stain on his dress shirt is at the same height as the shirt pocket, yet, in the next shot the stain is much lower, below his stomach. (00:12:25)
