Little House on the Prairie

The Raccoon - S1-E10

Plot hole: The plot gets confusing here. First, Laura and Jack (the dog) are rabidly bitten by Jasper (her pet racoon). The doctor warns they may have rabies from the bite. A second more dangerous raccoon is discovered which eventually left the area. In the end, Charles (discovering there were two raccoons in the barn after finding Jasper remaining), says Laura is going to be OK after all. The main confusion is that Laura would still be in danger from the bite regardless of which untested raccoon bit her.

Chicago - S8-E8

Plot hole: Finding Jr's watch intensifies their search into what happened to him, but why would it? They had just learned that it was a tragic accident and even reaffirmed later that they believed Schultz's story. Yet the watch's seller "might have seen something."

Rage - S9-E4

Revealing mistake: When Laura picks up Baby Rose from Thomas Stark, the blanket is flipped up and you can see a plastic doll's leg, then when she goes into the bedroom, she has the real baby.
