Truth Be Told - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Sydney learns that SD-6 is not part of the CIA, she goes to Taipei. Just after she arrives, she takes a man's car. At this point the number plate reads DH 5578, but, in the next shot, as she is driving away, it is JU 1587. (00:51:15)

Truth Be Told - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Syd's Dad rescues her in the car park, he starts shooting at the other car. After firing one shot the slide of his gun locks back (indicating it's out of bullets), but when the angle changes he carries on firing with no problems. (00:43:20)

So It Begins... - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Between the pilot episode and the second episode of Season 1, the swing of the blast door on the secret base reverses. In the pilot, the hinge is on the right and it opens from the left. In episode two, the door opens from the right with the hinge on the left. (00:12:05)

Show generally

Factual error: In the episode where Sydney is supposed to be in Helsinki, there are visible skyscrapers in the background. There are no skyscrapers in Helsinki.

Doppelganger - S1-E5

Question: When discussing the bomb plot, there's something odd with the audio. When Sloane's talking, at two points he says "UCO", but it's obviously been dubbed over - the shot's from behind but the tone is different. Arguably just post-production looping, but because the pitch is so noticeably different I'm assuming they mentioned some organisation they couldn't refer to, so changed it. Can't be the UN, as they mention that earlier in the scene. Anyone know why that was changed? (00:35:05)

Chosen answer: It does sound overdubbed, but there was no change in the organization. UCO is United Commission Organization. There are signs when Patel is coming that say UCO so obviously it wasn't changed.
