10 mistakes in season 1

Surf's Up - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: The scene is shot in a traffic jam on the freeway. The sky has a gray overcast. All close up shots of the irate female driver were filmed in a studio - the background is flat and is a vivid blue.

Cry Wolf - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Scene 1 has Station 51 with Engine 51 as the 'Ward Le France' and Squad 51. However in the next scene, Engine 51 is the 'open cab crown fire coach' that comes out with 'Squad 51' to respond to the responding call.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Ponch's motorcycle gets stuck in a glue spill so strong he couldn't push the bike out. But he has no trouble walking through it or sliding through it when he falls off the bike.

Crack-Up - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: A driver is wreaking havoc, putting two officers in the hospital. First while driving a Firebird, second when driving a tow truck. He is driving the tow truck as he approaches the accident of an overturned armoured truck. But the close-up shot of him as he goes by is from earlier while he was driving the Firebird.

Aweigh We Go - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: A load of PVC pipe is secured to the truck with three straps. When the driver yanks on the rear strap, which comes off easily, the other two straps automatically become disengaged allowing the load to fall off the truck.

Trivia

Although many realistic freeway numbers and exits mentioned over the 2-way radio are real, they were not used in the show. An unused section of the 210 freeway (close to the 118 freeway) in the San Fernando Valley that wasn't quite open to the public yet, was the location nearly always shown on the show representing whatever location is mentioned. If you see many episodes, you can see the same section of freeway always shown.
