Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: You see a person walk behind her in a corridor. Since it is very obvious and occurs during a short cut where nothing else is happening, it is deliberate. A fundamental rule on film sets is that once "action" is called, no-one moves if they don't have to. If a crew member had walked through the shot like that, they would have done a new take or just use a different segment of the shot.

Gone - S4-E2

Other mistake: Lois digs up Chloe's grave site to unearth her casket. It is obvious that the casket is not buried six feet deep. You would think, with all that is going on, that LuthorCorp would have at least buried the casket deeper to deter inquisitive eyes and maybe throw in a few scattered bones for good measure.

Arrival - S5-E1

Other mistake: In the opening credits of the original broadcast, Kristin Kreuk's first name is misspelled as "Kristen." The credits sequence, which was new for Season 5, was corrected by the time the second episode of the season aired.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jonathan lectures Clark about the danger of accepting gifts from Luthors, the key he twirls is a GM truck key, not a Ford truck key.

Continuity mistake: After the meteor shower, the bit of hair that Mr. Luthor finds in the cornfield changes in his hands from stretched straight to curled. (00:06:15)

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Clark finds Lex in the Luthor mansion, they walk down the hall and into a new room. As they enter, as Lex is saying "So, hows the new ride?" if you look in the bottom left of the screen you can see a white tape marker on the floor, where Lex will walk over to subsequently. (00:33:10)

X-Ray - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: While climbing ropes in the gym, Clark and Pete switch sides relative to each other. First Clark is on Pete's left, then he is suddenly on Pete's right. (00:07:00)

Phoenix

Pilot - S1-E1

Factual error: Lex crashes and his car lands on its roof, but in the span of a few seconds it has sunk straight to the bottom, and turned the right way up. Cars don't sink that quickly. (00:17:25)

Lucy - S4-E16

Plot hole: In episode 4-16: "Lucy," there is no reason for the criminals to be chasing Lucy on the ski slopes at the beginning of the episode. We learn later that she's been working with them all along; she calls Lois during the chase, and the call is part of Lucy's plan with the criminals. Lucy being chased by the criminals would make sense given the story she gives Clark during the next part of the episode, but it doesn't make sense for what we ultimately learn is the truth. And nobody from Smallville is anywhere near the ski chase, so it also doesn't make sense as any kind of a ruse.

Continuity mistake: The hole in the guard rail changes size and shape between the shot of Lex driving off it and another looking up at it from below. (00:18:10)

Phoenix

Persona - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: Season 7, episode "Persona". When Lana walks in from the balcony her hair swaps from being in front of her shoulder to behind it, then back again. Then when she sees Bizzaro's face in the reflection of the glass, her hair is styled differently again.

Pilot - S1-E1

Plot hole: After Chloe shows Clark the Wall of Weird, Clark is confronted by Whitney outside. Whitney is wearing Lana's meteor rock (kryptonite) necklace but Clark actually feels no effects until he ends up opening Whitney's shirt.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Closeups and wide shots on the Wall of Weird show different things next to each other. Watch the objects surrounding the finger article and the Wall of Fire article in the wide shot on Chloe, then look again at the closeups. (00:38:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Lex spins up to Luthor Corp in his car, as the camera pans over the car to follow him, the cameraman is reflected in the window as he pans over. (00:14:40)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the truck right before the parade passes them by, Jonathan Kent kisses his wife. Cut to a different angle but this time his left hand is on her cheek. It wasn't there in the prior angle. (00:02:15)

Metamorphosis - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Greg hits Clark with the pipe in the foundry, Clark's hands are very dirty. In the closeup on Clark's hand immediately after he lands, the hand is clean to show the effects of the Kryptonite. (00:39:45)

Phoenix

Slumber - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: While there was a close up on Clark while he was asleep, you could see a small cut right above his eye, which is impossible if he can't be hurt.

More quotes from Smallville

Hero - S7-E13

Trivia: When Clark confronts the Flash in his hotel room, he reads off the fake IDs Jay Garrick, Barry Allen and Wally West. Those are the secret identities of the first three men to be called the Flash in the comics. Also, this Flash says his name is Bart, like Bart Allen, the teen hero formerly known as Impulse and currently being called "Kid Flash." (00:10:35)

Whisper - S3-E10

Question: In the episode, 'Whisper', there is a character that makes a very high pitched feedback like noise. Is this a character that was in the old comics and can anyone tell me how this guy does that noise?

Answer: No, there is no such character in the comics. He's a "meteor-freak" like all the other baddies on the show. The sound has something to do with him vibrating his vocal cords very fast to create a high-pitched squeal.
