Continuity mistake: Hugo "Hurley" Reyes is required to purchase two tickets because of his weight, and is the last person to enter the flight. At the end of the episode, Hugo sits next to an Asian man, while there are other people behind him in line.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In season 2, episode 5, Jin and Mr. Eko are searching for Michael. Jin gets attacked by a boar and rolls down a hill to find the corpse of Goodwin. In this scene they are in the middle of the jungle. Two epiosdes later ("The Other 48 Days"), when Ana-Lucia confronts Goodwin they are on top of a mountain without trees surrounding them. This is confirmed in Juliets flashbacks in later seasons when Ben takes her to see Goodwins body.

Show generally

Character mistake: Throughout the whole series Jin and Sun refer to each other as "yobo." The subtitles continually translate "yobo" as either "Jin" or "Sun" which is incorrect. "Yobo" is Korea's version of "dear" or "sweetheart."

Factual error: Jack's scar on his left lower abdomen is reportedly from appendicitis. The appendix is on the right lower abdomen.

Show generally

Factual error: This is across the whole show, but made perfectly clear in the episode "The Whole Truth" (Season 2). Korean women do not change their last names upon marriage. A woman in Korea cannot be identified by name as someone's wife. And they would never be addressed that way. But Sun's fertility doctor addresses her as "Mrs. Kwon". Korean women can adopt their husband's family name if they move to a country where that is commonplace, but Sun was still in Korea at this point, and even after they crashed on the island, she had only just left the country.

Season 1 generally

Question: When Claire is pregnant with her baby, her belly looks very realistic. Does anyone know how they make it look so real?

Answer: Using a mold, a realistic pregnancy belly is made of latex (rubber), including the distinct belly button, to suit the proportions of Emilie de Ravin who plays Claire. It is then painted with a special paint/adhesive compound that adheres to the surface and for shots of the actual belly, additional veining and stretch marks are airbrushed on.
