Weird Wednesday - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When the man who doesn't speak English is in treatment 4, there's a closeup of the Datascope 850 monitor, and then the girl points to the EKG monitoring unit behind the gurney and asks Dixie why the thing is bouncing up and down. Problem is that the Datascope 850 is used by the paramedics and it's not actually in that treatment room. The treatment room has a Zenith Travenol unit.

Publicity Hound - S1-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When John and Roy are tunneling through to the little girl trapped in the hole, they're in the second larger hole that has been shored up on all sides with wood (to keep it from collapsing), but when Roy points the chrome flashlight down the lateral hole Johnny's digging in, we can see in its reflection that the fourth wall doesn't exist, where the camera and lights are located.

Publicity Hound - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: On scene with the little girl trapped in the hole, when they shine the flashlight down the hole in the overhead closeup, it's too obvious that it's a doll with its arm raised up, plus the fact that we see plenty of space around the doll, contradicting the plot of the little girl being wedged in a tight space.
