White Rabbit - S1-E5

Audio problem: While Claire is lying down, just after she says, "Our only hunter's gonna get eaten so he can get the pregnant girl some more water," we hear Charlie say, "I wouldn't worry about that," but his lips just begin to open mid-sentence, and he certainly doesn't say that. (00:24:40)

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Jack is precariously hanging over the cliff, the thick safety wire attached to the front of Jack's waistband is quite visible in a few shots, as he moves about. One such instance is two shots after Locke says, " Take my hand." (00:21:35)

White Rabbit - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Jack, Hurley and Charlie discuss water situation, the suitcase filled with water bottles repeatedly changes. One example: when Charlie carries the stuffed suitcase, then sets it down, it is open just a couple of inches, but when Jack walks away the suitcase is bursting with bottles, and is open at least 18-20 inches.

Solitary - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: As Sayid swings upside down in the trap, the black stunt suit is visible at his back where his shirt is pulled up, and the outline of the stunt device is visible under the front of his shirt. (00:03:20)

Solitary - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Sayid is pulled upside down in the trap, he swings toward the tree and is stabbed by the branch. It is an entirely different branch in each of the following shots: first - when he is stabbed, second - when it sticks out of his thigh, third - when he pulls it out. (00:03:20)

Solitary - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Sayid steps into the trap, in the close-up of his feet he removes his right foot, and the left remains on the ground, inside the closing rope. However, in the next shot as he's lifted in the air, it's his right leg that is caught up in the trap. (00:03:15)

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: While Jin is cuffed to the wreckage, Sun points to her wrist and explains in Korean, but Sayid shouts, "The cuffs stay on!" At the start of the next shot, a crewmember's arm is seen holding the reflector screen to Sawyer's left, as he makes a sarcastic comment. (00:09:30)

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kate and Sawyer find the deceased crash victims underwater, as Sawyer takes the man's wallet and heads for the surface the corpse's tie floats up freely, his suit jacket is pulled way up, and his legs are spread apart. Yet, when Sawyer and Kate go back for the case, the neat tie and suit are on properly, and now the corpse's legs are suddenly crossed, albeit in a twisted sort of way. There are other changes in both the female and male corpses' positions between shots. (00:05:20 - 00:05:50)

Whatever the Case May Be - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Kate and Sawyer happen upon the lovely waterfall, Sawyer removes his shirt and he has the bandage tied round the stab wound on his upper arm. When underwater, there is a different dressing on his arm; it is snugger, with no ends - most likely an elastic type to stay put during the underwater shots. (00:02:50 - 00:04:15)

The Moth - S1-E7

Trivia: In the midst of withdrawal, the third time Charlie asks Locke for his stash Locke finally hands it to Charlie, who stares at the bag of heroin. On the DVD commentary, Dom Monaghan remarks that while he holds the bag of heroin (really brown sugar, but hey) he's "doing a Gollum" - using Andy Serkis's portrayal of Gollum, and his desire for his "Precious" as the basis for Charlie's intense need for the drug.

House of the Rising Sun - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: After Jin is pulled off Michael, when Sawyer removes the marshal's handcuffs from his pocket there is a very short link chain dangling - about a couple of inches. However, when Jin is cuffed to the wreckage the link chain is considerably longer - about a foot. (00:06:15)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Jin is handcuffed in season 1, "House of the Rising Sun" and the cuff remains on his left wrist until season 2, "What Kate Did" when Locke removes it. The handcuffs have a distinctive shape - a single strand connected via pivot to a double strand with the lock area. When Jin is initially cuffed to the plane wreckage, the single strand faces out at his wrist, but in following shots, in this and all the subsequent episodes, the handcuff actually switches sides repeatedly, going round his wrist the opposite way.

Continuity mistake: In numerous shots of individual characters, while on the island, the sweat stains on their clothing significantly and repeatedly change, or disappear and reappear between shots.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: The white tape round Charlie's fingers, that first read "fate" and later "late", drastically change their appearance - such as the size and shape of the letters, and the color and condition of the tape, in numerous consecutive shots.

Other mistake: When Ray pulls up to Mary Ann's home, the front exterior layout and dimensions of the house are evident, from its near center front door to the two car garage, in front of Ray's van. The side exterior wall contains two large garage doors, which are about 35-40 ft from the location of the front door, with no small basement windows at ground level; inside, beside the front door, the stairs that lead to the basement run parallel just under the stairs in the foyer. In the basement, the small windows on the far end of the furnace room they run into are only about 20 ft from the basement stairs. Not only are the small windows non-existent in the exterior shot, but it's entirely impossible for two small windows to be where they are, considering the exterior footage of the house.

King Kong (2005)

Trivia: Peter Jackson's cameo in this film is in one of the biplanes attacking Kong, when he stands atop the Empire State Building. This is an homage to the director/producer cameos in the 1933 film. His co-pilot is makeup-artist Rick Baker, who portrayed Kong in the 1976 version of King Kong.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the marshal and Ray drive their vehicles down the long road, the endless line of telephone poles are on their left as they drive, with barren land on their right. However, when they pass the third vehicle the poles are on their right and then repeatedly change sides in the following shots. (This has nothing to do with camera angles.) (00:30:10)

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Deliberate mistake: As Ray drives the pickup truck, an oncoming vehicle beeps and the marshal heads behind Ray's pickup. In the shot through the cab's rear window facing the bed, as the marshal pulls behind, the bed's side wall interior is seen (note the metal loop tie down on top) and the entire tailgate is gone; yet the tailgate is intact later, when the pickup flips over. The tailgate was removed for the shot to allow visibility of the marshal's vehicle.

Tabula Rasa - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kate pulls Ray from the burning pickup, in the first shot as she drags him across the grass his overall suspenders are not on - they are not clasped shut. However, as Kate drags him, a few shots later the suspenders are properly clasped on. (00:30:50)
