Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny get back to the brush fire's base camp, they join the rest of 51's guys who are sitting and eating. During this entire scene, continuity between shots is off. Chet's coffee keeps switching from Johnny's hand to being on the ground, and then between both of Chet's hands to being on the ground. Also, the bread on Chet's sandwich is either white or a darker type, the sandwich size varies, and it also changes hands.

Other mistake: When Roy and Johnny are working on the squad's engine, while Johnny's lying on the mechanic's creeper, Roy is holding a spray can with white tape wrapped around the top of the can, so the brand name would not be visible.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When John and Roy are searching for the missing man during the fire at the winery, a flaming piece of debris falls in front of Roy. When Roy climbs up to the deck above him, it cuts to Roy on his knees about to stand up, and we can see someone moving right near him, at the left of the screen, even though he's alone.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy visit Mrs. Johnson on the 6th floor, they take the elevator near the nurses' station, at the south end of the ER wing, and when they exit the elevator they turn left to room 603. This is completely impossible considering the actual floor plan of the hospital, since in all the exterior shots of the ER it is only 2-storeys.
