The End - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In George's memorial service, the extras are totally different in the shots from George's point of view to the shots from the back of the room. Look for the woman with brunette hair and orange overalls - she's there in the forward shots but missing in the reverses. The chairs, tables, props, costumes and character placements are all completely discontinuous. (00:12:15)

Continuity mistake: In episode 2.9, in the last scene we can see that Paul still does not play basketball well in the future, and future Kevin narrates that it is so. However, in episode 4.8, Paul actually becomes a better basketball player and makes the basketball team, which means that in the future he would not actually play in the same way or as badly as he did when he was younger.

Continuity mistake: During the car chase scene, the car passes a petrol station and heads straight towards a bus.
