Infantino Street - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Iris is sitting in bed recording the message for Barry, she is holding her iPhone so that the start button is on the left side, but the "video record" button appears on the right. Additionally, her right hand covers the speaker area of the phone fully, including the front facing camera. It is impossible for Iris to be recording the video live and reveals that the video footage was recorded ahead of time. The illusion that the video is being recorded by Iris live is further ruined by the fact that the room lighting is turned off in the scene, but the recording is well lit. (00:02:55)

Deliberate mistake: Early on, The Flash's immense speed caused his clothes, and those of people he was carrying, to catch fire because of the air resistance. Gave him an excuse for the suit, but this effect was fairly quickly forgotten, with him frequently carrying civilians or running out of costume with no ill effects at all.

Suggested correction: This is half-true. Barry's connection to the Speed Force allows for some sort of shield around his body that protects him from harm while running. In the beginning, his bond with the Speed Force is weak, whereas later on, he becomes closer and closer to the Speed Force, allowing him to run faster, defy laws of physics, etc.
