Elementary picture

While You Were Sleeping - S1-E2

Other mistake: When Sherlock was slapped, he later says he was surprised because the girl who slapped him was a "lefty." Then he rubs his right cheek and says it's leathery from all the slaps he's gotten, while the left is soft. This is backwards - anyone hitting him with their right hand would hit his left cheek.

Raisins and Almonds - S1-E5

Other mistake: Miss Fisher takes a handwritten phrase in "ancient" Hebrew to one of the main characters to be translated. The writing is actually in cursive Hebrew and is properly written. While performing the translation however, the "expert" translator holds the writing upside down. He also follows the writing with his finger from left to right. Hebrew is written from right to left. (00:32:00)

Vendetta - S1-E8

Other mistake: Before the security guard is killed, he turns around and faces the direction of the camera. He is killed, and the camera backs up to reveal 6 men standing there. The security guard would have seen the men and he had time to react to them, but did nothing. (00:32:50)

Nightwing vs. Gambit - S1-E5

Other mistake: Once outside in the rain, Gambit throws 4 explosive cards at Nightwing. The first three hit walls and truck trailers but have absolutely no effect on the environment, where the fourth one causes lots of rubble to fly as Nightwing rolls out of the way. (00:03:55)

Kako kara no tegami - S1-E2

Show generally

Other mistake: In the pilot, Heather Darden states that Andy had been at the house for 14 years. Assuming that he was placed there directly after the Academy that would place his age at 32 years old at the time of his death (2012). In Season 3 (I Am the Apocalypse), April Sexton gives her year of birth as 1982, making her 33 years old in 2015. April and Andy both are said to be the same age as Kelly Severide, as Darden went to kindergarten with him and April sat next to them in class, however there is at least a 3 year age difference between Andy and April.
