Jericho (2006)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 1-14, "Heart of Winter". Just before the robbery, Jake throws some water bottles and a flashlight over a small mound into the bushes, to hide them from the thieves. But when Mimi later picks them up, they are much closer to the truck, and on the other side of the mound. In fact, the bottles and flashlight would have been in plain sight for the robbers where she picks them up.

Jericho (2006)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 1-14, "Heart of Winter". The second time Stanley puts straw under Jake's head, the hood of Jake's sweatshirt gets pulled back, almost off his head. Cut to a close-up of Jake, and the hood is suddenly pulled all the way up, covering his forehead.

Jericho (2006)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 1.13, "Black Jack". When the truck smashes through the building to escape Black Jack Fairground, a big part of the roof falls down over the car that is following directly behind the truck. As the angle changes, there is suddenly no sign of the fallen roof, neither on the car, inside the building or on the ground next to it.

Zombie Nightmare (1987)

Other mistake: The coroner examining the bodies in the tennis hall, he says that "lover-boy" is being "fished out of a swimming pool full of blood". But as he himself says later on, Pete was killed when his neck was snapped, there were no wounds he could bleed from. In addition, the zombie dropped him in a hot tub, not a swimming pool.

Zombie Nightmare (1987)

Revealing mistake: When Tony stops the robbery at the grocery store, he punches the guy holding the gun. You can see that his fist does not connect on this punch, but the robber reacts as though he had been hit.

Zombie Nightmare (1987)

Revealing mistake: When Pete is lying dead in the hot tub, he is also visibly moving his arms and legs, treading water.

Revealing mistake: During the pirate attack, Rosencrantz sits up in bed, narrowly avoiding a sword that's thrust through the wall next to him. Just before the sword appears, the film jumps a little. It also jumps again just after the sword has been withdrawn and he lies back down. Clearly these two motions (him sitting up and down in bed and the sword appearing/disappearing) are two separate takes that were spliced together.

Transformers (2007)

Other mistake: During the last fight, Megatron and Optimus Prime fly through an office building while locked in combat. It is shown that the interior of this building is filled with both people and furniture, but when they crash through the last wall, only building debris fall to the ground with them. No people, furniture, office supplies, papers or any of the things that the building was full of.

American Samurai (1992)

Continuity mistake: During the final battle between Kenjiro and Collins, Collins starts out wearing a black kimono with white trim, similar to the one Kenjiro is wearing. However, several times during the fight, he is seen wearing the simple blue kimono (without trim) he has used in his earlier fights. His outfit keeps changing back and forth during the entire fight, sometimes black and white, sometimes blue. The absence/presence of white trim makes this very easy to see.

Jericho (2006)

Rogue River - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Gray and Jimmy are questioning the Hawkins family, Jimmy is wearing his brown uniform jacket. But in the scene where Gray is asking if Jimmy can search the house, Jimmy's jacket disappears for an instant, just after Gray has said "Just a question of being thorough". Allison Hawkins makes a remark about this being Kansas, not Soviet Russia, and as the camera comes back to Jimmy, his jacket is back on.

Continuity mistake: While Kenjiro and Collins are talking under the arena, a fight goes on between the blond Australian and a swordsman dressed as Conan, which the Australian wins, killing Conan. Later, while Collins is in the Fighter's Room, Conan can be seen in the background, and the Australian is missing the wounds he received during the earlier fight.

Twotall

Continuity mistake: During Collins' first fight with Lars the Swede, Collins is pressed back against a wall while holding his sword with the edge upwards. Cut to a close-up, and he is now holding the sword edge-down, and turns it over again.

American Samurai (1992)

Revealing mistake: During Kenjiro's fight with Phan Xu, Kenjiro cuts Xu's face. This cut goes across Xu's headband, but the headband is still in one piece. The cut is visible above and below the band, but the band itself is untouched. As Kenjiros sword is capable of cutting a steel chain, a piece of cloth should not pose any difficulty.

Continuity mistake: In 8th Stanza, part 2, Eddie, Roland and John are throwing a baseball between them while talking. At one point, Roland tosses it to John, before going to the fireplace and dropping his cigarette butt. John never throws the ball back, but Roland all of a sudden has it again and has been tossing it from hand to hand for some time. As every other pass of the ball is mentioned, there would be no need to omit it if John actually had returned the ball to Roland.

Twotall

Continuity mistake: In the Seventh Stanza, part 2, Eddie and Roland are involved in a gunfight alongside two civilians, one (later identified as John Cullum) who is wearing a flannel shirt, and Chip, the store owner. But at one point, two men come around on Eddie's side of the store, also wearing flannel shirts, that are described as "unlike Chip's shirt, they seemed brand-new". Chip is not wearing the flannel, John is.

Twotall

Other mistake: When Tubal meets Shylock outside the brothel after Shylock's "Hath not a Jew eyes?"-speech, a man in a passing gondola spits on Tubal. The spittle hits Tubal's clothes (And as the man is sitting while Tubal stands, he could not have reached any higher in any case). Tubal stills reaches up to his face and wipes it with his fingers, as if the spittle was there.

Stargate (1994)

Continuity mistake: After the slave boy gets a cigarette from O'Neil, he reaches out to touch a gun, and O'Neil grabs it and scares the kid away. O'Neil is then holding the gun with the barrel pointing towards the door, but as the angle changes he is suddenly holding it at a different angle, pointing down to his right and away from the door. (01:05:30)

Rocketeer (1991)

Continuity mistake: When Cliff and Peevey first test the rocket pack by strapping it to a statue, the statue skids across the ground and crashes into a small mound of dirt on the otherwise completely flat field. But when they run over to collect the pack, the mound is gone and the statue is lying in a crater, as if it had hit the ground from a much steeper angle.

Jericho (2006)

Federal Response - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: After Jake has seen Hawkins through the scope, he lowers it down to his hip in the long shot. Cut to a close-up of Jake, and he is suddenly holding the scope much higher, at shoulder height, without any time to move it back up between shots.

Jericho (2006)

Federal Response - S1-E5

Audio problem: When Hawkins asks Jake if he needs help putting out the third fire, he uses his hand to stop Jake from opening the car door a couple of times. The first time he does this, the thump of his hand is heard a split second before his hand connects with the door.
