Coulda, woulda, shoulda - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Carrie is sitting at her laptop eating a blue ice pop. She takes a bite from the top then holds the stick with the rest of the ice pop in between her teeth while she types on the laptop, we see a shot of the screen. When we go back to Carrie she is eating the rest of the ice pop which is impossible because just 2 seconds before it was still attached to the stick. She didn't have time to bite it off the stick because she was using both her hands to type.

What's sex got to do with it? - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: After Carrie asks Ray if he wants to 'play her', she pulls down the neckline of her top to reveal a strap on her left shoulder. But in the next shot when Ray moves behind Carrie and we are facing them, suddenly her top is pulled back up, and there is no strap showing. This was a seamless transition, and there was no time for anyone to have pulled her top back up. (00:19:05)

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.
