Buffy The Vampire Slayer

As You Were - S6-E15

Audio problem: When Buffy has just killed the Suvolte demon and Riley is found out to have not told her it was a tracking only mission Sam says something like 'If we weren't under time constraints, I'd rip you a new one.' Riley then says 'Stand down soldier.' Buffy asks Sam, 'Is he your boss?' And Sam replies 'He wishes. We better regroup.' But her lips to not move when she says they have to regroup. You can see her mouth on screen and she is just smiling, not moving her lips at all.

First Date - S7-E14

Audio problem: In the graveyard scene when Cho-Anne says the Cantonese translation of 'I don't understand what any of you are saying', watch her closely in the shot just before it. She starts to mouth part of the line early, but we don't hear it.

Who Are You? (2) - S4-E16

Audio problem: Near the end of the episode when Giles, Tara, Faith/Buffy and Willow arrive at the church and a police officer tries to stop them going inside Willow says, 'Oh no you don't understand (or words to that effect) but her mouth doesn't move at all, it was clearly dubbed.

When She Was Bad - S2-E1

Audio problem: When Jenny and Giles are talking and Jenny is talking about the festival, they walk behind a drinks machine and then her lips don't match up with what she says.

The Killer In Me - S7-E13

Audio problem: When Anya comes in from helping the potentials get in the car, she says that Molly is in the trunk. She then says something along the lines of "I'm surprised at how compact Molly is," as she walks away with Willow, but her mouth doesn't move.

The Pack - S1-E6

Audio problem: In the scene where Buffy and Giles are talking to the zookeeper about the hyena possessions, in the zookeeper's over-the-shoulder shots, you can see that the audio of what he says does not line up with the visual of him speaking. (00:33:05)

Smashed - S6-E9

Audio problem: When Warren, Jonathan and Andrew break into the museum to get the diamond, Warren makes a hole in the glass, then pushes it through, but when it lands, it sounds like plastic, not glass.

Listening To Fear - S5-E9

Audio problem: At the start of the episode when Buffy and Dawn are with Joyce in the hospital room, Dawn starts eating jelly, and when Joyce starts speaking you can see in the left hand corner of the screen Dawn talking, but no words are coming out.

Storyteller - S7-E16

Audio problem: After Anya and Xander sleep together again, Anya says "I think, maybe we're really over. Which - it's good, right? I mean, now we can move on." When she says "Which - it's good", her lips don't match what she's saying.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Audio problem: In the episode 'Once More, With Feeling', when Anya sings her first few lines of the song 'I'll Never Tell', you can still hear Xander talking about omelettes in the background, but for the last few lines he speaks (from 'I could do an omelette' onwards) you can see over her shoulder that his voice is dubbed. (00:13:10)

Passion - S2-E17

Audio problem: Jenny prints off the translation for the Ritual of Restoration from her computer, then spots Angel sitting across the room from her. As she gets up and starts walking towards him the sound of the printer can be heard but the paper has already finished printing.

Once More, With Feeling - S6-E7

Audio problem: In the final song "Where Do We Go From Here", you can hear Spike still singing even after he has apparently stopped. He and Buffy continue singing until after the line 'When do the trumpets cheer'. It is noticeable because James Marsters sings the word 'cheer' slightly out of sync with everyone else.

Goodbye Iowa - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Buffy is talking to Riley, she puts the scarf on her head, on his hand. He talks to her and says "Maybe I am the bad guy," and in the next frame her scarf is back on her head again, then off again in the next frame. (00:24:20)

Answer: She has superpowers, ergo fast movement. The reason she outruns him so easily in "Touched" is that she stops trying to actually fight him and just dodges instead.
