The post-it always sticks twice - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: If you check the Post-it note on the previous episode and this one's, it is not the same note. It's very similar, but the "t" in "Can't" is different, the apostrophe in "I'm" is within the word then above it, and other small differences.

To market, to market - S6-E1

Plot hole: In this episode Carrie runs into Aidan, who now has what looks to be about a 6 month old baby (Tate). This doesn't seem possible, as Carrie and Aidan would have only broken up about a year ago, and Miranda was around 6 months pregnant when they broke up. Brady is only about 5 months old at this point in the series, leaving Aidan only roughly 8 months to have this baby - but Aidan lay in bed for about a month and then dated Nina Katz for awhile. Timeline just doesn't seem to fit.

The caste system - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When Charlotte approaches Wyle in front of the fire extinguisher, the boom mic is visible at the top of the screen. (00:10:40)

Games people play - S2-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Carrie is sitting at the table writing on her laptop after her trip with the girls to the sports bar, the camera comes round and you can see her TV. You can see a boom mic reflecting on the TV screen, and another camera.

Continuity mistake: When Samantha is talking to Carrie on the beach, Carrie lifts her arm up and places her hand on her head. The reflection on Samantha's glasses show Carrie lowering her arm, but the shot changes back to Carrie and the movement she is doing is not downwards but backwards, leading hear hand to the nape.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of every show we see Carrie walking down the street and she gets splashed by the bus. First the bus has people on it, then in the next shot they all disappear.

No ifs, ands or butts - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carrie and Miranda are eating cakes outside the shop, talking about Miranda having to be supportive to Steve about his basketball competition, keep an eye on Miranda's cake. She takes bites out of the cake and then when it is down to the last bite, the camera shows Carrie, then shows Miranda again with the cake suddenly full.

Valley of the twenty-something guys - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Carrie receives a phone call from Samantha and her voice over says she needs her morning Marlboro Light, however, when she picks up her pack of cigarettes, you can see that it is a pack of Merits.
