Lost

Recon - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 8 "The Package": When Charles Widmore hands Jin the camera and tells him to turn it on, the lens is already out, therefore the camera is already on. When the shot cuts away you can hear him turning the camera on and the motor extending the lens.

Boobra

Live Together, Die Alone, Part 2 - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: Penny's letter to Desmond changes as he reads it. The text stays the same, but the handwriting and position of the words on the page change between the two shots where you can see the letter from the front. Also, for the audience the letter is read aloud with Penny's voice. Interesting is the fact that there is one sentence omitted: "Sorry to be so dramatic, but these are dramatic times, are they not?" (You can read this sentence in both "versions" of the letter though).

Collision (a.k.a.Old Habits) - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the jungle while Sayid is tied up, when they are told to leave, Jin's handcuff is higher on his wrist. As he walks past Sayid the handcuff is so low around his hand that it would slip off easily. (00:26:45)

Ab Aeterno - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: Season 6, episode 9 "Ab Aeterno": When Jacob pulls Richard upright after dunking him, his hair flies back over his head, leaving his face fully visible. The shot changes to a front view and Richard's hair is now covering most of his face.

Guy

The Glass Ballerina - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sawyer dumps out the water canteen Juliet tosses him, his hand moves from the top of the base to the bottom, and the angle at which he pours the contents out changes, as well. (00:24:15)

Numbers - S1-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Hurley is at the new house, after his mom hurts her ankle, he reaches into the car window to get the cell phone. When he begins to dial, the cameraman's arm moving about is reflected in the back chrome of the side view mirror. (00:12:10)
