Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Takes Manhattan - S3-E1

Deliberate mistake: After Monk and Sharona speak to Gratnik in Dumbo, they take the subway back to Manhattan. While Monk is sobbing, in the first exterior shot the "A" train slows into the 42 St station in Manhattan; note the "A" at the left with the driver on the right, as well as the "42" station sign not reflected backwards, all revealing a flipped shot. Then it's the "C" train when it stops, with Monk and Sharona back in Brooklyn, even further now at the "Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street" platform (used for TV shows and films), in lower Downtown Brooklyn.

South by Southeast - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: When Rockford is with Agent Kleinhoff on the tarmac, the airplane Rockford boards has N-number N664CL, but the airplane that takes off has many more windows and a Canadian flag (it's not the 70's Air Canada logo) on its tail; then the plane in midair has N-number N953GA. Mid flight there are more discrepancies in the airplane's configuration. Finally, the airplane that lands has the original tail number N664CL. (00:06:35)
