Emergency!

Frequency - S3-E1

Character mistake: When Brackett and Early are dealing with three squads at the base station at the same time, Squad 51 has two victims - father and son, Squad 18 has a pulmonary edema, and Squad 36 has only one bicycle rider with severe head injuries, because the second rider died, so the total is four out of five being dealt with. Back at the station, after Johnny asked Dixie about the condition of all the victims, he tells Roy that the father and son are both responding, so is Squad 18's pulmonary edema, and for Squad 36's bike accident, that "both" are coming out of the coma, which totals five victims. Then Roy responds, "Four saves out of five victims. That's pretty good." Johnny should not have said, "both" since it was just one rider.

Frequency - S3-E1

Character mistake: Days after Drew's death (Roy and Johnny had two days off after Drew's death), during the meeting that Brackett has with the four paramedic units, one of 59's guys asks, "What do we do when we have this overload situation on the same frequency? Two squads, like 51 and us today?" The situation with the frequency did not happen "today" as he said, it happened at least three days prior.

905-Wild - S4-E22

Other mistake: After the officer hands Les the tranquilizer gun, Les asks which way the tiger went and the officer responds, "Down that aisle," and we see both men, who are standing right beside the self-serve ice cream freezer, moving slowly towards the aisle in front of that ice cream freezer. The problem is that in the next shot, we see the large tiger coming from that exact area in front of the ice cream freezer, as he walks toward the camera on the other end of the aisle. This means that the Bengal tiger, Les, and the officer would have all been standing in the very same spot, at the same time.

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny cross the road to talk to the sheriff about the injured rock climbers, Roy does not have gloves in the back pocket of his jeans or anywhere else, nor does he take gloves from the sheriff's trunk with the other climbing gear, before he and Johnny begin their ascent. However, when he reaches the boys, Roy has a pair of thick work gloves sticking out of his back pocket.

Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Squad 51 is dispatched to the man who has difficulty breathing, once they arrive and it cuts to a closeup, at the top of the screen there is a small dark film square that moves towards the left corner, and then it stays there in the following shots facing Johnny, until he contacts Rampart on the Biophone.

An Ounce of Prevention - S6-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Roy and Johnny are on Tom Jensen's show, the outline of Johnny's lavalier mic transmitter is visible on the front, right of Johnny's shirt, over his belt, as he and Roy begin their demonstration, and also after Jensen's crew member electrocutes himself when Johnny and Roy carry and lay him down near the table. This has nothing to do with the wired mics that are clipped onto Roy's and Johnny's ties for Tom Jensen's show.
