Revealing mistake: When Jim is stripping, if you look at the computer screens you can see a line of text to the right of the video that reads "Duration 0:00:19:26." However, the stream is "live" so the duration should not be static. (00:48:20)

Revealing mistake: When Kevin is sitting outside the prom alone throwing pennies into a cup, there's the sound of them hitting the bottom, but if you look closely you can see nothing goes into the cup. (01:11:30)

Continuity mistake: When Finch is moping through the house, depressed, he goes through a door marked "keep out". The door handle is on the left side, meaning that from inside the room the handle must be on the right. However, when he plays with the pool balls, we can see that the door he must just have come through (there's no other door visible) has the handle on the left. (01:16:30)
