Visible crew/equipment: When Monica stops the car, as Frank is getting out, you can see two cameramen in the reflection of the window.

Parenthood - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: After Fiona's return back home from the club where she's worked as a waitress, the blackish strips on her cheeks turn from partially rubbed off (justified by her wiping the tears) to perfectly fine a moment later, then change several more times during her discussion with Lip. (00:38:35 - 00:39:35)

A Great Cause - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Frank are driving in the car with Liam, the Crawford Power Plant can be seen just behind the car. At this point, they have crossed the Stevenson Expressway and they are heading south down Pulaski. However, in the scene where they stop the car and argue, as Monica drives away, the Crawford Power Plant can be seen on the left, right ahead of them. (00:13:40 - 00:14:50)

Fernando Casillas

Citizen Carl - S10-E7

Visible crew/equipment: Carl is walking along the reporters trying to get their attention. At the bottom of the screen is the shadow of the camera filming the shot. It moves as the scene moves. At one point there is even a boom mic shadow on the right. While this may be a member of the news crew, it's likely the boom mic for the show as the reporter has a mic of her own and the shadow follows Carl.

Ouroboros - S7-E9
