Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rube shakes hands with the animal protesters, he is not wearing the trash bag while shaking their hands. He is wearing the trash bag immediately before and after.
Plot hole: People who do not have their souls retrieved, before they are killed, will suffer the effects of the death on their soul, eg. the autopsied man has scars and cuts on his soul. So how come the woman who was crushed by a piano (whose soul was only ever retrieved afterwards) is unharmed in soul form?
Other mistake: When Rube is searching the hard-copy (paper) archives, the young man with him opens the last box and pulls out an old "Wanted" poster with Rube's face on it. He tells Rube "This guy looks just like you." Since season 1, episode 1, we've known that Grim Reapers don't look like they did when they were alive (i.e., Millie/Un-George). Yet somehow, Rube has not changed since his life/death.
Plot hole: Dead Like Me: Life After Death DVD movie: When he's robbing the grocery store, we see Mason from the point of view of the security camera. We see the Mason that the reapers and the dead see, but we should be seeing the face that is visible to the outside world.
Factual error: Towards the end of the episode, Mason reads a report on Daisy's death indicating she died 13 December 1938 in Marietta Georgia of smoke inhalation. It apparently was common knowledge that Daisy died on the set of Gone with the Wind (supported in the Halloween episode by someone who knew her when she was alive). The filming of the big fire scene in GWTW was 10 December 1938 so the dates are pretty close. But these early parts of the production of GWTW (and I believe the rest of the movie as well) were filmed in Culver City, CA, not Marietta.
Audio problem: When Daisy is at the bar (acting), she gives Walter "5 reasons men come to a bar." When she says "Three: They wanna see that they're missing," her lips are not in sync with the words. It's tricky to see because they used a shot with the camera behind her.
Continuity mistake: When Rube's talking to the graffiti artist, he's painting what looks like a blue cat. We cut away, hear a brief paint spray, then cut back. There's now far more painted than that spray could have achieved, and what was there already has changed as well.

Continuity mistake: In the airport, when Mrs. Thibideaux (Roxy's reap) sees the cluttered luggage holding up her suitcase, she climbs over the first few bags and tosses the others down. Before she even started climbing, the conveyer belt was stopped which meant the luggage that she climbed over (including what looked like a bag with skis) would still be in the way. Yet when she falls, it's a clean slide down to break her neck.
Visible crew/equipment: During George's funeral, the camera swings around to follow the employee from Happy Time (the guy who George gives files, minus the red ones, to) and as he crosses the room to the other side, you see a crew member holding a boom mic, who looks over a little startled and moves back out of view.
Continuity mistake: When Guggenheim is sitting on the bench after he dies, he reaches for the pink index card and his fingers pass through it. But then how did the index card get to the bench? He had it when the gas tank hit him, so it could make sense if he still had it "with" him, like his clothes, but if he can't touch it now, then it should have stayed with his body, inside the building.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode George is wearing a sweater that is stained with large blood splatter. During the actual reap she is splattered with blood but the pattern is very different, both in quantity of blood and the splatter locations on her sweater.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Mason takes the notebook from Roxy, the camera is off the corner of the table showing all four seated at the booth. Roxy reaches across the table with one hand and for her gun with the other and starts to explain she will shoot Mason. The camera moves for a close up on Roxy and her hands are now in front of her, folded on the table.
Continuity mistake: In the bar, just after Ray lost a pool game to Mason, they are watching a boxing match on TV. Ray begins to rack the balls and pulls out 4-5 balls and places them in the rack. The camera switches back and forth, Ray again pulls 4-5 balls out and racks them, but the original ones are gone. The camera switches back and forth again and when Ray is done racking the balls, the balls are in a different order than he placed. He is watching Mason, not looking where he places the balls. Watch the 2 and 11 balls.
Continuity mistake: Dolores walks to the computer and tells Georgia "Apparently Stinky5000 votes for 'Ferns and Flowers'." The first look we get at the screen shows the message "Could you tell us what the dog's name is?" and nothing else. The next two glimpses of the screen we get shows "You forgot to put detergent into the dishwasher" and nothing else. It's after the next cut that Dolores says Hungrygirl wants to know the dog's name. As Dolores walks away from the computer, we get a last look at the screen. You can see Stinky5000's message "I vote for "Ferns and Flowers'" appearing on the screen.
