Impact - S1-E1

Other mistake: Right at the start, as they're crashing, the computer narrates their rapidly-dropping altitude in feet. But the "altitude" dial we're shown is in metres. Most noticeable as they cross the 3,000 mark, when the computer voice and the height say/show the same number at the same time, despite the different units. 3,000m would be more like 9,000 feet, or 3,000 feet would be more like 1,000m.

The Mother-in-Law - S1-E5

Other mistake: Episodes 4 and 5 of season 1 aired noticeably out of order. In episode 4, "The Nanny," Alex's former Nanny, Rosalba, comes to work at his podcast company, and its name, "Ajana," is mentioned a few times. But episode 5, "The Mother-in-Law," starts with the company unnamed; over the course of the episode, Alex learns of the concept of "ajana," the unknown, from his mother-in-law and chooses it as his company's name.

Tuesday - S1-E9

Factual error: At John O'Neill's retirement party, during a toast in the evening, you can see the new One World Trade Center in the background out of the window, where the original World Trade Center towers should be.

Stuck - S1-E1

Factual error: The Seattle Police officer's uniform for the City of Seattle is not correct. Seattle Police don't wear light blue shirts anymore. The Seattle Police uniform is dark blue (shirts and pants) and the department has a redesigned patch.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: John Paul Getty approaches the kidnapper's cars and Getty removes his sunglasses and tucks them into his coat pocket. The next shot shows him still wearing them as the kidnappers approach.

Black Blood - S1-E1

Other mistake: All the Greek name variants are used over the Latin ones - including even "Odysseus" over the more familiar "Ulysses" (who is the same person). However when the story of Actaeon comes up, it's suddenly the goddess "Diana" that he saw. But all the gods have their Greek names, so that should be "Artemis." (As indeed is used in episode 2).

Bad Hair Day - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Katie is handed the iPad with Alexa on face time, when the iPad is facing the classroom, in the camera reflection on the iPad, all of the stage lights are visible.

Day 51 - S1-E6

Deliberate mistake: Likely for safety reasons, the fire that engulfs Mount Carmel is more clean and controlled than the fire from the real incident.
