Mistake – n° 1
At the end of episode 101, the
letters FAGGOT painted on the Jeep are thicker than they were when they
left St James Academy.
If you take a look at this scene, you can also notice
that the people in the car are not Gale and Hal in the wide shots..
Mistake – n° 2
At the end of episode 103, when
Ted brings Blake back home, there is a mirror on the fridge door. The next
day (in episode 104), when Michael and Emmet go to Ted's condo to "clean
it up", the mirror has been replaced by a picture. We can't really think
that Blake stole it before running away now, can we?

In episode 104, Brian is supposed

Mistake – n° 4

In episode 112, when Brian comes
to ask Justin if he's free that night, Justin has a cigarette on his hear. From
another angle, it's not in the same place.
Mistake – n° 7
In episode 112, while Brian and
Justin are having a little ice-cream-kiss session on the chair, Justin has
some ice cream on his cheek. Viewed face on, his face is clean.

At the end of episode 114, Justin says
he's turning 18 the next day. In the same episode, Michael tells Emmett who's doing
his Spring Cleaning that it's December. But Ben, in episode 207 says he's a
Pisces. If his birthday is the same day as Justin's then he's either a Sagittarius
or a Capricorn, not a Pisces.
Mistake – n° 10
In episode 117, while he's protesting
in front of St James Academy, Justin
has a button on the front of his cap. A few seconds later, the button is now
on the side.
Mistake – n° 11
In episodes 201 to 205, Justin is
devastated because he can't use his right hand to draw anymore. But when he
first met Brian in episode one, he told him he was ambidextrous. Then why is
he not using his left hand to draw?
Mistake – n° 12
In episode 207, Ben arrives in
Michael's Comic Shop to bring him back the cap he forgot at his place the day
before. Since when Michael does wear a cap? It's probably the only way
the writers managed to give Ben a reason to come back. Michael couldn't
have forgotten some of his clothes since he didn't take them off. His keys?
He would have noticed the missing soon enough. His lighter? He doesn't smoke. He could have
forgotten the book Ben recently gave him but Ben would have seem too smug if
he'd brought it back.

In episode 211, before Lindsay and Melanie's

Justin to his cat Wolfram von Eschenbach.
But we'll never see that cat again. In such a small apartment, it's kinda strange,

In episode 304, Brian is taking
a shower and his nephew steal the bracelet he left on a table. It's the
kind of bracelet you never take off even to take a shower, since you can't put
it back on your wrist on yourself (besides at the end of the episode, we can
see he needs Justin to tie it back). We can’t imagine that Brian would take
it off thinking that his idiotic nephew would help him put it back on.
(Note from Willa - in
fact he removes his bracelet to take a shower, at least he removed it in episode
101. What seems to be a mistake to me here, it's that his bracelet is on the
table with his watch and cell-phone, like he still wears his bracelet every
day. But he stopped wearing it since episode 219 - see my theory about the bracelet
in the "various infos" section ;o))
Mistake – n° 17
In episode 311, during the meeting
at the Gay&Lesbian Center, Jim Stockwell
admits that he can't remember the name of Jason Kemp. He seems to be sincere. But
if his partner told him he killed the boy, and considering he closed the
case himself, he should remember. We don't know if it's an incoherence in the
story, or if it proves that Stockwell isn't clued into the whole story.
Mistake – n° 18
In episode 111, we see David's

Mistake – n° 21
In episode 115, when Justin is
watching over Gus while Brian is at the Leather Ball, Melanie says Justin was
about to give Gus hot milk. But it's not the first time Justin watches over
Gus, he should know how to take care of a baby.
Mistake – n° 22
In episode 118, Babylon's barman
refuses to give Justin a beer because he doesn't want to show his ID. But he
sould have been carded before entering Babylon, shouldn't he? (or maybe
he entered with Brian)
Mistake – n° 23
In episode. 206, Ted follows
Emmett in the steam room. They're both highly surprised to see Zack O'Tool's
huge sex. But Ted already saw it during the play in episode 113 and Emmett already
saw it in his appartment!

launches his dead father’s bowling ball down the street, he
raises his arms... and we can see the wire of his microphone
under his shirt.
Mistake – n° 25
episode 120, when Vic goes to the mall restrooms, we can see
a sign stating that the place is monitored by security cameras.
So, why does he have such a problem proving his innocence when
the conversation he had with the cop must have been filmed?
This video isn’t mentioned at any moment during the trial.
Mistake – n° 26
episode 122, we see Jennifer several times. In episode 201 (one
and half month after the prom party), her hair grew almost 8
inches. And Gus has spurted in growth. Another anomaly: strangely
enough, Justin, who’s just recovering from brain surgery, doesn’t
have his head shaved...
Mistake – n° 27
In episode 203, Justin is walking on Liberty
Avenue, while Brian’s waiting for him. A bald guy in a military
wife-beater passes Brian. We can see him going away, behind
Justin. Till now, everything is correct.
But when Justin reaches Brian, the extra
reappears behind Brian. Then, we see him walking in the opposite
direction, behind Justin. Again, he crosses the street, a cup
of coffee in hand. Then, he passes behind Brian.
Mistake – n° 28
In episode 306, Ben pulls out Debbie’s
fridge to seek the ring she lost. He finds it and puts
it on her finger without wiping it, which means that there is
no dust behind the fridge. If Debbie cleans regularly behind,
this would mean that Ben is not a hero, after all.
scene, at the same time comic (she bought the ring on
the tele-shopping), tender when Ben kisses her hand, when
we know what they have been through, and distressing because
we are aware now that Ben takes steroids.
Mistake – n° 29

gave it to him.
Mistake – n° 33

In episode 115,
Brian accompanies Gus at Debbie’s. He tells her that his father
has cancer. The decorator was probably in a hurry, because he
put the framework of the photograph, behind Brian, vertically
rather than horizontally.

At the end of episode
301, Brian is waiting, lying on his bed. He is wearing his bracelet.
When he gets up to let in Justin’s look alike prostitute, the

night, totally drunk after having a few with his father. Michael
holds him up and tries to close the door with his foot,

barricades it with a bolt and a security chain).

and gives her a – new - kiss.

episode 117, Justin wakes up in the middle of the night and
notices that Brian isn’t in the bed. He stands up and drapes
himself with a sheet. He arranges it like a toga, in a rather
sexy way. But where does this sheet come from ? There is a duvet
on the bed, so a duvet-cover. Do they use an extra sheet ?
Mistake – n° 41
220, Michael is opening the parcel of « Rage » that he just
received from the printer. We clearly see the address : «
Red Cape Comics, 568 Westerley Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15233”.
But, in episode 205, when he purchased the shop, the address
was… 607 !
