Revealing mistake: After Squad 51 is dispatched to the 'electrocution in a house', while Johnny goes to the garage to turn off the power, Roy waits at the doorway to go inside to the victim.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Brackett is first on the line with the vet, there's a closeup of Early checking the goat's heartbeat and we see the baby goat has been intubated. Brackett informs the vet of the goat's heart condition, so the vet tells Brackett to mask him with halothane and intubate. Then a minute goes by before the vet says that they should have him intubated by now, and when Brackett gets back on the line he says that the animal's intubated, even though we saw the animal already intubated in the closeup right at the start.

Frequency - S3-E1

Character mistake: In the morning, when Roy and Johnny are by the lockers, talking about what Johnny did on his days off, Roy tells Johnny, "I came on this morning, guys on A shift told me that they had a meeting with Brackett at Rampart yesterday." It could not have been "A shift" because Roy and Johnny work the squad for A shift, with Captain Stanley and the rest of the guys. And we know that Roy and Johnny didn't switch shifts with B or C, since the rest of A shift are there with them, working the engine that day.
