Nagging Suspicion - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: While the squad and engine are en route to "possible fire", one of the camera angles is from the POV behind Roy and John, where the back of squad is located. That’s fine, but the problem is that there's bright sunlight on their backs as they’re driving, when it should not be there. Artistic license is acceptable, but with so much sunlight where it should not be it reveals that Squad 51 is not in its normal state.

After Johnny catches the baby, just before Truck 8 rolls in, when Roy says over the HT, "All right, set up the Truck...," he moves his hand with the HT away from his face and directs Truck 8, yet his voice is still booming as if speaking into it.

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
