Root Cause - S1-E13

Factual error: Finch's trojan tracker displays "accessing network on IP 623.173.93 .225.9." Not only is 623 an impossible number for an IP address to have, as they only go up to 255, it's also made up of 5 parts, instead of the 4 which IP addresses are limited to.

Risk - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Mr. Reese and the stockbroker are hiding out with the street people. In the portion of the show entitled "Kill Squad," at about the 2:02 mark, Mr. Reese is building a fire in a steel drum. The paper and wood are nearly overflowing as he continues to prepare the fire. They cut to Mr. Reese spraying lighter fluid onto the pile of wood and paper. However when Mr. Reese throws in the match to ignite the fire, all the debris are way down in the steel drum. As the flames come upward there are no signs of the wood or paper that had been obvious before.


Risk - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Reese and Saunders are nearly crashed into at the construction site, as Reese is exiting the vehicle you can see the stunt driver is the one sitting in the driver's seat instead of Saunders. (00:18:45)
