Continuity mistake: Samantha is wearing a tweed suit. In several of the takes, the back of the suit is shredded. Then in other shots, it is fine.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: When the real estate agent is about to show the views she hands a brown folder and a pair of red sunglasses to Sam. In the following shots the glasses are gone. Sure Sam had five seconds to put them away, but she didn't move from the spot, plus her hands were busy all the time.

Revealing mistake: When Carrie bumps into Mr. Big and her purse falls, watch the people in the background carefully. Many of them are watching the couple talk and interact with each other. On a busy New York street nobody is going to pay attention to two people having a conversation. Apparently all these people were watching the shooting of the scene.

Models and mortals - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Miranda picks food with the chopsticks, then exactly one second later the food is gone and she is talking. Too fast for her to take it to her mouth, chew it and swallow it, for the scene takes place in real time. (00:06:00)

Models and mortals - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Big arrives at the party Carrie is eating a snack, with a remaining one on her hand. Big sees her and she's eating another snack, which leaves her with zero food. Half a second later there's a wide shot and not only is she not chewing the previous bite, but 2 snacks have suddenly appeared on her hand.

Visible crew/equipment: When Stanford and Carrie walk backstage with the models, check the reflection on the glass and you'll see: the boom mic operator, camera and, best of all, a group of technicians crouching on the floor, failing to hide and moving around when Carrie and Stanford walk around.
