The Upside Down - S1-E12

Character mistake: At the start of the episode when Clay is done brushing his teeth and standing in front of the mirror without a shirt, he has no tattoos. He has been seen several times with tattoos on his arms that are not even covered by a normal T-shirt. (00:05:02 - 00:05:23)

Never Out of the Fight - S2-E22

Character mistake: When Jason is having his toast in the bar, he begins listing up the amount of decorations there are in the room, starting with saying there are three Silver Star medals in the room. Bravo Team alone has eight Silver Star medals. The only operators from Bravo who do not have the Silver Star medal are Blackburn and Full Metal. Full Metal was a real SEAL before going into acting, and earned a Navy Cross that he also wears in the show on his dress uniform. (00:36:36 - 00:37:12)

Objects in Mirror - S3-E14

Character mistake: Sonny and a Turkmen soldier are having a competition shootout, and they're both using CZ75 9mm pistols. These firearms are very high end and are made in Czechoslovakia. Sonny says "I have this little Russian pea-shooter." The place of manufacture is stamped on the frame and its Czechoslovakia. (00:20:00 - 00:20:30)

All Along the Watchtower: Part 2 - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The team and the hostages escape from the compound in an SUV and a school bus with the SUV in the lead. They are being pursued by a small truck with a mounted machine gun which starts firing on the school bus. They switch positions, moving the SUV behind the bus so that they can protect the hostages and return fire. The next shot in the command post via a drone shows the original lineup, with the school bus behind the SUV.

Season 2 generally

Question: This season has added the odd effect of a large puff of red smoke/dust whenever someone is shot. It is unrealistic and distracting. Wondering if anyone knows the reason for this change.

Answer: Depending on caliber the body does spray blood from .308 and up.

Answer: Only because it looks cool on screen.
