Prison Break (2005)

Subdivision - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Season 2, episode 6. While the guys are digging in the garage, Michael tells Sucre about the website they can use, as C-Note walks in. He closes the door behind him, but misses the catch, and you can see the door start to swing open again behind him as he walks further into the room. Cut to Lincoln for a second, then to a wide shot, and the door is now firmly closed.

Prison Break (2005)

First Down - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When agent Mahone is looking at the photocopied newspaper articles, at first he is holding a single sheet of paper, and you can read the headline in reverse through the paper: "Life Sentence for Mob Boss Abruzzi". We then get a close-up of the articles from his point of view, and he is now holding two sheets of paper, where the topmost reads "Governor's Daughter Wins Humanitarian award". Mahone places this paper on his desk, and you can see that he is once again only holding the one "Life Sentence." paper he had to begin with. (00:05:30)

First Down - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Bellick's partner, Geary, is wearing a light grey T-shirt, with a very prominent sweat stain on the front. Throughout the episode, this stain constantly changes shape and size, even within two shots of the same scene, and sometimes it disappears altogether. This is best seen when him and Bellick are herding the prisoners to their car. In the close-ups of him, his shirt is completely dry, in long shots the sweat stain is there. (00:04:45)

Manhunt - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln and Michael are talking on the little pier, Michael talks about Westmoreland and his relationship to the truth. Lincoln has his head turned towards Michael through this, but as Michael says "There'd be no reason for him to lie about it", the angle changes and Lincoln is suddenly staring straight ahead, with no time to turn his head between shots.

Manhunt - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Steadman takes out his gun, he presses it to the back of Veronica's head. She does not flinch or shy away from the gun, but in the next shot, a close-up of Steadman, the gun muzzle is pointed at the camera with Veronica off-screen, and so the gun is suddenly not touching her. (00:22:40)

Bye Bye Birdie - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: After Tim smashes Al's display cabinet, it cuts to Tim, then back to the workbench and the wrecked cabinet. The pieces of china and the pieces of wood on the bench differ in the two shots. In the first shot, there are two whole teacups, one whole plate and a bit of a shelf on the bench (the shelf is on the right side of the screen), in the second shot we see a broken tea cup, one broken and one whole plate, and the piece of shelf has disappeared.

Karate Or Not, Here I Come - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Jill is standing up to the other woman at Mark's karate class, she asks her "Will you stop calling my son 'Stick Boy'?" As the other woman replies "Then feed him something", her hands are on her hips, but when the angle changes, she has her right hand on her chest, with no time to move her hands between shots.

Revealing mistake: When Tim is falling, crawling and rolling on the snow-covered ground in the final scene, none of the snow clings to him or his clothing. He does not even get damp, even when he is lying on his back in the same spot for several seconds.
