Revealing mistake: At the studio, in the overhead shot just as the squad is about to reach the building where Johnny will be testing Wally's equipment, the 'Black Tower', which houses Universal's executive offices, is visible in the background, and then in the roof shots when each of the guys repels down individually, the Sheraton-Universal is visible in the background.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After rescuing the injured worker from the top of the sky-tower at Oceanland Park, when Mike has a problem starting 51's engine, we see reflections of array lighting on the squad's surface. And when Captain Stanley moans that he'll have to call Charlie, he stands in front of the engine and calls out, "Why me?" and one of the location's array lighting units is visible at the left side.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are rehearsing in front of Captain Stanley and the other guys, after Johnny uses the bug spray on the flame, in the wide shots Roy's hands are in his pockets and the hairspray can is on the table, but in the closeups Roy's still holding the hairspray can.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Station 51 is on scene at the freeway accident, after the two girls are rescued from the wreck, when the explosion occurs Roy and John dive to the ground, and as the camera zooms out we can see the top of the location's array lighting unit, just past the engine's hose bed at the bottom left corner.Super Grover
Revealing mistake: During the rescue at the jail, while Roy tries to get a safety belt around the prisoner's waist, the man freaks out, then grabs Roy and they both swing out on Roy's safety line. When the camera pans a bit too far to the left, we can see the edge of the fake "sky" screen on the left, behind the building's replica set used for closeups.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Johnny and Roy get back to the station and walk into the day room, right after Marco says, "Well, either he's sick, or he's the laziest dog ever lived," we can see the shadow of the boom mic moving back and forth across the top of the wall, on the right.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Station 51 is dispatched to the fire at a singles club, when Engine 51 pulls into the parking lot it and then turns around, the reflections of multiple array lighting can be seen on the engine's surface and Mike's window when he opens the door.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Squad 51 dispatched to 'man bitten by animal', the center chrome on lightbar is a solid piece, but en route the chrome center is striped and its trim is covered with black tape. Then when they approach the car lot, the black tape is gone.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Roy and John are still aboard the Coast Guard helicopter during the cliff rescue at Catalina Island, when the chopper's on scene, in the overhead shot from inside the chopper, we can see where the victim is lying on the rocks, however, in the next shot from ground level, the victim is now lying on the other side of the jutting rock.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Early, Morton, and Dixie are examining the young boy who fell, Early's wearing a gold ring (wedding band in real life) on his left hand's ring finger, but when Dixie finds the tick she asks Early to have a look, and in the closeup of the boy's head, Early's gold ring has vanished.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Engine 8 is dispatched to "man unconscious at construction site," we see Engine 8 going past Curson Ave, then the next shot Engine 8 is driving up from the other direction of Curson Ave and passes it going the other way. Neither are flipped shots. Other than seeing the sign for Curson Ave, other giveaways are the same signs or parked vehicles.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: When Roy tells Karen that she'll know when she can do it on her own when she'll have to, the reflection of set lighting is visible on the squad's chrome spotlight. Additionally, when Station 51 is dispatched to the structure fire the rear bay door closed, but when the rigs roll out the rear bay door is open.Super Grover
Visible crew/equipment: After Roy and Johnny speak to Chet's friend the realtor, when Station 51 is being dispatched to the accident on Harbor Freeway, in the overhead shot of the apparatus bay, we can see the shadow/reflection of production equipment moving on the engine's windshield.Super Grover
