Continuity mistake: In "The Power of Madonna", during the Cheerios stilts routine, as the people on stilts lift one leg one after the other, they are in a V shape, and there are both girls and boys on stilts. Yet in the very next shot, as the people on stilts swing the other Cheerios around, there are only 3 Cheerios, all guys, on stilts, and they are in a straight line.
Other mistake: In the scene at the lockers with Brittany, Santana mentions having trouble finding a younger man per Sue's orders. However, Santana is a senior in season 3, which would make her a sophomore in season 1. Therefore, she could easily just date a freshman instead of needing Finn.
