Continuity mistake: At the restaurant where Max, Michael and Isabel are talking, Max is sitting at the end of the table. Isabel walks up with her food and sits down right next to him.

Heat Wave - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Liz and Alex are in jail and talking through the bars, you can see in several scenes that the bars are evenly spaced about 4 inches apart. Then there is a closeup of Liz and a bar is missing in front of here face. It appears wide enough for her head to fit through. You can see the normal spacing of the bar to our left of her face and the one left of that. It is much more narrow than the ones in front of her. (00:34:00)
