Otis - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Michael is sitting in the park he's staring at the front page of the newspaper. As the camera follows a man in the park you can see that Michael has opened to the midpages, but in the next shot Michael is looking at the front page again, before opening it another time. (00:02:00 - 00:02:30)

Otis - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: At the start when Mahone is sitting in his garden, his grip on his phone changes between shots. In some shots he has 1 finger on the side of the phone and in others he has 2. (00:01:20)

Factual error: When Michael fills the tank with water (below the stock room), he then strips his clothes off, and slides down a pipe and into the water at the bottom of the tank. Since the water level was way above him, the pipe he slid down and the access to get there would have been flooded also. There was no water in the pipe he slid down, so for that area to be dry, it would have to be above the water line.

Trivia: S4E11: (spoiler) The Scylla alarm on the General's computer is visible on screen for a second or two. Below the flashing word 'alarm', it says it is in section AA-23. That's also the designation of the prison block where Princess Leia is being held in Star Wars. This was certainly done intentionally, but is also easy to miss.
