Revealing mistake: The teaser contains footage of a stunt-gone-wrong. The getaway truck smashes into a mock-up police cruiser that has been secured with a chain to pull it back out of the shot. The chain breaks, and is visible trailing from the bumper as the fake cruiser starts an unplanned roll down the hill. (It went on to collide with and damage two real HPD patrol cars rented for the production).

Revealing mistake: McGarrett's office is on the 2nd floor. Yet the photo backdrops outside his windows in this episode show us a ground-level view of grass, streets and a building. This boo-boo vanishes in subsequent episodes, replaced with the more likely views of balconies, palm trees and blue sky.
Revealing mistake: A loud, fierce gun battle rages between dozens of 5-0 sharpshooters, Army MPs and the desperadoes inside the payroll office. Amidst all the high-powered rifle fire, a woman in a blue dress strolls casually by in the background, well within bullet range, and never even turns her head to see what all the ruckus is about. Gee, you'd think colossal shooting wars broke out on her block every day.
