The Professor - S2-E15

Audio problem: At the site of the crashed plane, when the trapped pilot screams, "Help, I can't get out, the doors are jammed," his mouth movements do not sync with the words we hear. Then once he's out, it happens again when he says "I guess I'm a little shook."

Continuity mistake: Frequently during the first two seasons there will be long shots of Squad 51 running down the road but it has mysteriously become a mid-60's Dodge (easily visible because of the red painted grille) instead of the familiar 1972+ model Dodge with a chrome grille. It also has 51 on the door which makes for a significant paradox.

Continuity mistake: Just before Engine 51 and Squad 51 arrive at the scene of the hang gliding incident, there's a long shot of the victims lying injured on the side of the cliff, and when the camera zooms out we see Johnny and Roy with the informant of the accident standing at the top of the cliff, even though Squad 51 hasn't actually arrived at the scene yet. That same shot is shown a minute later after they all arrive, when Roy says that he'll get some equipment.
