The Sopranos

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As Alex, Salvatore and Hesh walk along the bridge, if you watch the right side of the screen you can see a crew member wearing a purple T-shirt and holding a piece of equipment high in the air. (00:39:39)

Isabella - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Tony buys the orange juice off the street vendor (just before he is attacked by the hitmen) you can see the magazines on the vendor's stand being blown around by the "heavy winds" that are present throughout the episode. However, if you look behind Tony, you can see the scenery is almost completely still. The "wind" is coming from just off camera. (00:27:17)

Jack Vaughan

Pilot - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Tony collapses in his back garden, and the barbecue grill explodes, some coals (supposedly thrown into the air by the explosion) land next to Tony's body. Watch this moment closely however and you can see that the coals come into shot from left of the screen and not above from the air as they should. Obviously thrown in by a nearby crew member, just off-screen. (00:19:48)

I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When Artie visits Livia at the hospital there is a close-up of the newspaper that Livia is reading and it is obviously fake. Some of the articles look like they have been pasted into it and there are white strips of paper covering up headlines or replacing them with new ones. (00:16:50)

Guy Walks Into a Psychiatrist's Office - S2-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Tony tells Janice that he has just put their mother's house on the market. In season one, the house had already been sold.

I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano - S1-E13

Plot hole: In the scene where the FBI plays the tape to Tony and reveals the conspiracy between his mother and Junior, it is stated that the bugs were placed at Green Grove. However, the second conversation played in the sequence actually took place outside a movie theater the episode prior, which would not have been recorded as part of the Green Grove surveillance. The conversation involves Livia telling Junior that Tony reminded her of her cousin Kiki after she had her lobotomy.

Knight in White Satin Armor - S2-E12

Other mistake: In the scene where Janice is trying on her wedding gown with Carmela, her tattoo is gone. However, in all the other shots, her tattoo is above her cleavage line, between her boobs. It's nowhere to be seen in the wedding dress shots.

Suggested correction: Actually, her tattoo is visible. The style of the wedding dress she had on was obviously chosen for the way that it NEARLY covered up the tattoo. It is easily seen if your eyes are not glued to her cleavage near the 19 minute mark.

Sorry. There is no way her tattoo is covered up. I looked at the prior engagement party scene and jumped to the wedding dress, this is an error. There is no covering it up.

All Happy Families... - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: Tony, Carmela and AJ are meeting with AJ's college tutor. Partway through the meeting AJ is asked to leave. When AJ stands up he is wearing beige coloured trousers, but as the shot changes to show him walking out the door, he is now wearing black trousers. (00:15:30)

Big Girls Don't Cry - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: Right at the beginning of the episode, Chris pulls over in front of the Bahama Skies tanning salon to pick up his pay. The shot shows him in the car. As he exits the vehicle, the cameraman can be briefly seen in the reflection.

I Dream of Jeannie Cusamano - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When the shrink locks the door on Tony, they argue and she calls the police. When she finally calms down she approaches the door to unlock it but you can see the door move before she ever sticks a key in it or touches the knob. (00:25:20)

Unidentified Black Male - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: Carmela's lawyer is holding a pen with his right hand. From a different angle, the pen is lying on a paper on the desk.

No-Show - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: When Patsy knocks down the black guy with the iron pole, the pole breaks in half like a piece of plastic. When it cuts, the pole is intact.

Irregular Around the Margins - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Ade are playing darts, Ade throws a '3' and a bulls eye. When it cuts the darts have moved to '20' and '4'. (00:13:30)

Isabella - S1-E12

Factual error: During Tony's assassination attempt he struggles with one of the "hit men" for control of a pistol. One can see that the pistol does not contain a magazine.This would limit the shooter to 1 shot, providing the pistol is not equipped with a "magazine disconnect" if it is than it can not be fired at all. It seems unlikely that a "hit man" would be so ill prepared.

2

Another Toothpick - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bacala is telling Uncle Jun about his father and the accident, Uncle Junior gets angry and starts throwing things around, he is wearing glasses. You can see that in between throwing one of the items, he is not wearing his glasses, then he is wearing them again.

Guy Walks Into a Psychiatrist's Office - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: Christopher is seen sniffing some lines of coke, but he is just moving the dollar bill up and down not sniffing anything at all.

Pie-O-My - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: A different horse is used for close-ups and race shots; you can tell by looking at the white patch on Pie-O-My's head, which is much bigger in the close-ups.

Do Not Resuscitate - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Janice are discussing the DNR, there is a piece of black ribbon hanging from Janice's necklace in some shots, which is not there in others.

D-Girl - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The amount of bites out of the slice of pizza Chris is eating changes between shots.

Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: You know where I was yesterday when you called?.. I was outside a whorehouse, while a guy that works for me was inside beating the shit out of a guy that owes me money. Broke his arm. Put a bullet in his kneecap.
Dr Jennifer Melfi: How'd that make you feel?
Anthony 'Tony' Soprano Sr.: Wished it was me in there.
Dr Jennifer Melfi: Giving the beating or taking it?

Proshai, Livushka - S3-E2

Question: In the credits a character is shown as "2 to 5 / 7 to 9". Who is this character and what is the significance of her name?

Answer: I'm not sure which person you're referring to here specifically, but the meaning is someone who makes a habit of constantly going to funeral calling hours (normally 2pm-5pm and 7pm to 9pm) for morbid entertainment or gossip purposes (elderly ladies, for example).
