Show generally

Continuity mistake: There is a mistake in the opening of Season 2 and Season 3. When Charlie says "I took them away from all that and now they work for me", we see Kelly, Sabrina and Kris meeting in front of the Police Department. That is not possible: Kelly and Sabrina attended the Police Academy in Los Angeles, while Kris was in San Francisco. Kelly and Sabrina didn't even know that Kris had graduated from the Police Academy. (00:00:25)

Target: Angels - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Jill and Kelly hijack a cab to stop the killer from bombing Charlie's cab. On the way back to the mansion they pass Charlie's cab and almost run into a large truck. They miss the truck, but Charlie's cab hits it head on, doing some serious damage to the cab's front end. After they stop the killer, Charlie's cab arrives and now has no damage.

Night of the Strangler - S1-E3

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After the chase in the potato truck, the Angels are missing the handcuffs around their wrists. But they can't have removed them: they didn't have a key, they only removed the cuffs from the connecting chains, and after they cut off the chains, they were in the truck until they pulled over.

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After the Angels escape the Sheriff's car, they run to a barn. They spot a truck with the back loaded above the cab, with potato boxes. They steal the truck and when they pull out from beside the barn, the truck only has half the amount of boxes. No boxes can be seen higher than the sides of the truck. They don't pull out quick enough for the boxes to fall off.

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the Angels are being driven out into the desert to be killed, they are chained together. They reach over the front seat and choke the Sheriff and Deputy. In the close up shot, they pull their heads back with the chains. The Sheriff's hands go up in the air. In the long shot, the person driving and passenger are sitting normally and steering the vehicle.

Catch a Fallen Angel - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: The Angels are talking about Seth, a man who has just disappeared. They watch a picture of him. In the long shots, the picture is always held horizontally. But in a close shot it is held vertically. (00:06:20)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Pilot Episode: The Angels have gathered and the slideshow with the mission briefing is starting. Kate Jackson turns around and puts her glass next to the ink stamp, but when the desk is shown at an angle from the front displaying projector, Bosley and the guy with the horrible 'do that won't be in the rest of the series, then the glass is not present. (00:04:00)

The Killing Kind - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Bosley is speaking to Sabrina from the agency. He is using a white phone receiver. Sabrina asks him to run the plates for a vehicle. Bosley picks up a red phone receiver. He then speaks to Sabrina using the white phone. She tells him to call the highway patrol and hangs up. Bosley then picks up the red phone, but proceeds to use the white phone's keypad to make the call to the highway patrol. (00:32:55)

Angel on High - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: After Sabrina gets off the phone with Faylon, when she leaves her hotel room we see the exterior side of the door and its door knob. Later, when Sabrina returns to her room the doorjamb/casing, wall, and door knob are not the same in the closeup as she fiddles with the lock. Sabrina's ring vanishes in the closeup as well.
