Somebody's Watching - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Reid and Lila are in the pool, kissing, he explains how it is wrong that they are out in the open, and in a pool. Lila then kisses him again, and the paparazzo in the bushes takes pictures. In the first shot of this kiss, a close-up of Reid and Lila, her arms are down by her sides, but when seen through the camera, her arms are suddenly around his neck. Back to a close-up, and her arms are once again down in the water.

The Popular Kids - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene when the investigators at the police station realize who the killer is, the deputy enters and says that a revolver is missing. However, when Cory pulls out the weapon in the woods, he is holding a semi-automatic pistol. The deputy would know the difference between the two, but still uses the wrong term (a revolver may be referred to as a pistol, but an automatic like Cory had stolen can never be called a "revolver", as the chamber does not revolve).

The Fox - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Before the BAU catches the serial killer Carl Arnold, they used a heat sensor and it shows five people sitting at a table. They said there were three adults and two kids, but when they break in the house, the mother and one kid were sitting at the table, the father was tied up nearby, and Carl Arnold and the other child were in the basement. They were found by Derek Morgan right before Carl Arnold threw the child at Gideon, who fortunately caught him.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: They keep showing the aerial view of one type of jet (such as Gulfstream 100 with its rectangular windows), but the inside shots are always in a "heavy" Gulfstream (such as Gulfstream IV or Gulfstream V, which have round windows). Also, the tail numbers (the N-numbers written on the engine) are always different in the aerial views. Some end with GV, some with SP etc.

Mistakes

At the start, it's nighttime when the unsub hides in the house of the soon-to-be victim who goes to sleep when her alarm clock reads 'Tue 11:06', and then we see the time morph to 'Tue 1:13' when the victim is sound asleep, before the unsub comes out of the closet to kill her. However, the time on the clock should actually read 'Wed 1:13.'.
