Pilot - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Clark finds Lex in the Luthor mansion, they walk down the hall and into a new room. As they enter, as Lex is saying "So, hows the new ride?" if you look in the bottom left of the screen you can see a white tape marker on the floor, where Lex will walk over to subsequently.

Pilot - S1-E1

Factual error: Lex crashes and his car lands on its roof, but in the span of a few seconds it has sunk straight to the bottom, and turned the right way up. Cars don't sink that quickly.

Jitters - S1-E8

Audio problem: Clark listens to his father and Earl talking in the hospital through the visitor window. The sound is the same volume and quality as when Earl was using the microphone, which he is not using now. Even if Clark used super-hearing to eavesdrop, it wouldn't sound the same as the microphone.

X-Ray - S1-E4

Plot hole: After Chloe shows Clark the Wall of Weird, Clark is confronted by Whitney outside. Whitney is wearing Lana's meteor rock (kryptonite) necklace but Clark actually feels no effects until he ends up opening Whitney's shirt.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Closeups and wide shots on the Wall of Weird show different things next to each other. Watch the objects surrounding the finger article and the Wall of Fire article in the wide shot on Chloe, then look again at the closeups.

Metamorphosis - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Greg hits Clark with the pipe in the foundry, Clark's hands are very dirty. In the closeup on Clark's hand immediately after he lands, the hand is clean to show the effects of the Kryptonite.

Pilot - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: Clark's CPR form is terrible. When he performs emergency breaths on Lex, Lex's chest doesn't rise and fall, indicating that he's not actually breathing much air in. He doesn't bother to measure for the proper location for chest compressions, a very important step that is the difference between proper CPR and simply cracking ribs. As he performs compressions, he is not chanting the rhythm (one-and-two-and-three) and his elbows are bent. All of these were altered for dramatic reasons or the purpose of safety, but the sloppy technique probably would have killed Lex.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the truck right before the parade passes them by, Jonathan Kent kisses his wife. Cut to a different angle but this time his left hand is on her cheek. It wasn't there in the prior angle.

Metamorphosis - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Despite the fact that Clark and Jonathan are looking in the rafters above them for Greg, their flashlights stay relatively level.

Continuity mistake: When Lex is about to hit Clark with his car, Clark alternates between facing the car and facing the bridge.

Shimmer - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: Once Victoria has drawn her bath, we see her get in, and then lean back into the water. However she is already wet on her chest and her hair is damp already. This is probably due due to previous takes of the same scene.

Hothead - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: As Lex is chalking his pool stick while talking to Dominic about cutting 20% of the workforce at the LutherCorp Smallville plant, there is a red snooker ball on the wall rack missing from the second row. When Lex walks over to the other end of the pool table, the camera shot changes back to Dominic, now there is a ball missing from the top row, which was not missing before.

Pilot - S1-E1

Audio problem: When Mr. Luthor was buying the corn field from the farmer he says: 'Now, where do I sign?' The farmer replies: 'Right here Mr. Luthor' and points at the contract. Even though we can only see a profile shot of the farmer as he says these words it is pretty obvious that his mouth isn't moving.
