Continuity mistake: When singing the song about what they would do if the monster came to their room in the night, Simon puts on Alvin's duvet/blanket as a cape. It then shows an imagination sequence where the blanket is a correctly sized cape to fit him. When it returns to the real world, the 'cape' is the size of his imaginary cape, nowhere near the size of the bed.

Friends (1994)

The One Where Chandler Gets Caught - S10-E10

Continuity mistake: Ross claims he looks into Monica and Chandler's and watches them eating dinner and watching TV. His apartment is a floor lower down than theirs and with the balcony wall, the sofa and tables distance from the window and the fact the bottom of the window is higher than the floor, there is no way Ross would be able to see that far in. We have seen in the past that he can basically only see who is at the window. (00:19:05)

Cats & Dogs (2001)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lou has just met the other dogs and they are talking, after the jogger has passed, there is a shot from the ground where the dogs' heads are close together. It then cuts to a shot from above where the dogs aren't close at all. (00:17:20)

Powers (2004)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: It is established that having matter from one universe in another causes it to deteriorate, but the parallel universe doorway closed, even though the photo of Ben and Buster is left in the alternate house. There was brief panic that the chaos wasn't over, when they thought Buster had brought a new collar from the alternate reality, but the photo was forgotten about and the worm-hole thing closed, despite the photo being on the wrong side.

Suggested correction: Do you mean the photo of the real Keith Drop when they are in the house with Brian and the lady from the charity shop? If so that person is not supposed to look like Papa Lazarou with black/brown/white face as it's in fact a photo of the person he is impersonating and whose identity he has stolen, e.g Keith Drop when who has the appearance of a white man, hence why Papa is painting his face with make up to look like him.

The Route of All Evil - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: The back page that has been ripped off is put in the envelope with the top part showing the right way up, but it was folded so if the ads side of the page was showing, either the middle part or the top part upside down would show.
