Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 1-14, "Heart of Winter". Just before the robbery, Jake throws some water bottles and a flashlight over a small mound into the bushes, to hide them from the thieves. But when Mimi later picks them up, they are much closer to the truck, and on the other side of the mound. In fact, the bottles and flashlight would have been in plain sight for the robbers where she picks them up.

Eureka picture

What Goes Around, Comes Around - S3-E18

Plot hole: Tess sends Jack an airline ticket to visit her in Australia. The ticket reads 'From: Eureka, Oregon, To: Sydney Australia.' Seems odd that a commercial carrier would have a terminal in the most secret town in America. Eureka is a town created by the US government for its top scientists to experiment with new technologies. It is made nearly invisible from the outside by giant holograms. Very few non-residents even know of its existence.

Tomorrow's So Far Away - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end when Hannah is sitting talking to Caroline's headstone, when the shots change from filming her from the right to the left, the wind is different blowing her hair in one and not the other.
