The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Hogan gives a birthday party when the prisoners capture a German plane. When it is taking off, it is an English Lancaster bomber with a twin tail. As it is flying overhead, it is an American B-17 with a single tail. Finally as it is shown flying, it is a German FW-200 maritime bomber.

Suggested correction: It is never made quite clear whether those were really supposed to be a thing or just part of an extremely elaborate plot to throw off the spy. Admittedly, if they were supposed to be part of the plot, the question how Hogan's men managed to set up such a complicated system in the time available would be a mistake in its own right.

The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In this episode, the doghouse that disguises an entrance to the underground is flipped up on end, and the separate floor is flipped up in the opposite direction. In all of the following episodes, the doghouse, and the floor, are one piece.

Other mistake: Klink has on his monocle, as usual. If you look closely, the monocle is a single lens, with no frame. From Episode 2 onward, the monocle has a frame and a gallery. Also, Klink wears it at an angle, not unlike the Penguin in the original Batman series, who also wore a monocle without a frame.
