Quiet Sam - S1-E29

Visible crew/equipment: When Barney and Floyd are spying on Sam while he's getting groceries, we can see both of the grocery store's windows and its clear glass, but when Sam drives off the left display window has been covered with a dulling spray resulting in a matte surface, to prevent the camera and crew's reflections.

Ellie Saves a Female - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: On Flint's farm there's a cow tied to the back fence, which can be seen in exterior shots throughout the episode - when Ellie, Andy, and Barney are there. After Flint tells Barney to get off his land, in the exterior shot when Barney walks into the barn we see that cow tied to the back fence, but next shot inside the barn we see that very same cow in the stall - note the black/white markings.

Ellie Saves a Female - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: While Barney's on the farm trying to get Frankie, twice he heads into the barn through the right-side entrance door within the tall sliding double barn doors (about 12 ft high), but when it cuts to the interior shots he's entering through the barn's left-side entrance door, plus the fact that it's not within huge double sliding doors. (This interior set is seen again in "Barney Gets His Man.").

Other mistake: After the explosion at the top of the Empire State Building, when Fin's soaring through the air he grabs hold of the chainsaw and powers it up to use on the sharks, but in one shot the cutting chain has been removed from the chainsaw's guide bar. Then the cutting chain is back, but it's not moving even though we hear it working.

Continuity mistake: After Fin and the others exit the subway there's a baby shark stuck onto Fin's denim jacket which results in a large tear in the material, but that large tear in Fin's jacket vanishes and instead shows just a few small marks thereafter.

Other mistake: When Fin is standing atop the fire engine slicing into the overhead shark, the chainsaw's cutting chain has been removed from the guide bar - so it couldn't actually slice, but then the cutting chain is back in place.

Visible crew/equipment: While Fin's on the Empire State Building's observation deck Skye heads down to make a freon connection, and right after the closeup of the shark in the sky heading for the building, when it cuts to Fin we can see the reflections of the camera, two crew members, and a red step ladder with a yellow top (possibly a Werner ladder), all reflected on the glass door.
