  • In this episode, 13 minutes and 5 seconds in, just after Anna has the press conference telling the world about the kidnapping of her daughter Lisa, when she walks away from the stage and speaks to her security officer she mistakenly tells him to "Leak the location where the FBI is holding Lisa." In fact, it is the Fifth Column who is holding Lisa as we all know and not the FBI.

  • Season 2 Episode 6: Siege

  • Season 1 Episode 5: Welcome to the War

  • Goof: On the V's mothership, Anna says to Chad that the creatures in the cylindrical tank are Fuju (Japanese blowfish), to which Chad responds that their liver is poisonous. However, those were actually jelly fish, which don't have a liver.

  • Season 1 Episode 4: It's Only the Beginning

  • Several times in this episode we see a V being formed by people or objects. One example of this, is when Anna talks to her medical staff and they are all standing in the shape of a V. Also, in the end of the episode, the armada of Visitor ships is also aligned as a V.

  • Season 1 Episode 3: A Bright New Day

  • Goof: When Erica sneaks into the room across from the Visitor's "Perimeter Surveillance" room, not only does the sign reading "Those of the body only" in alien text disappear from the door when seen from the inside, but also the opposing hallway wall shows a different hallway with a turn where there was a narrowing instead.

  • Goof: After Erica discovers the V surveillance room, she leaves and we see a shot on the monitor of Tyler and Lisa entering his home. There would have to be a V jacket in front of them to achieve this shot, but they're alone.

  • Goof: Just after the cut from the Visitors getting their visas, Erica is sorting through information about people from the list acquired previously. She types the name 'Brian Downs' in a search on her computer, but when an immediate cut is made to a close-up of the computer screen the name now reads '-obert -ands'. Although the complete name is missing, it is clearly not 'Brian Downs'.

  • Goof: Near the end of the episode, when Tyler and Lisa are in his bedroom, he takes off his jacket and shirt. When he reaches down to tuck the jacket under his bed, however, at the edges of the screen, you can see that he's still wearing his shirt.

  • Goof: In the scene where Agent Evans notices the missing guard, the first two overhead shots are duplicate footage - you can see a woman in a V uniform with a purple headband and a blonde woman in a red shirt both turn at the T-intersection on the red carpet.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: There Is No Normal Anymore

  • Goof: After Erica tells Tyler to go to bed he picks up his iPhone to look at the picture of Lisa. On the wider shot of the phone the time clearly says "8:48". When the shot cuts to a close up of the phone the time has changed to "12:37".

  • Goof: When Anna is scrolling through potential outfits, the movements of her physical and simulated selves are not in sync. They are also not merely 'delayed' but actually different movements.

  • Goof: The expression in the photo of Lisa on Tyler's iPhone is not the same as when she took the picture of herself.

  • Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot

  • Goof: After being attacked, Ryan shows Georgie a wound on his left arm. However, when Ryan goes back home he moves his right arm with difficulty as if the wound were there.

  • Goof: In the closed captioning for N.O.R.A.D and N.Y.P.D. The "N" was left lower case.

  • As with the original series, the Visitor's alien text is just a substitution cipher for the alphabet, but written top to bottom then left to right, often breaking words into multiple columns. Many letters have a counterpart rotated 180 degrees, while the glyph for the letter H is already 180-degree symmetric.

  • Goof: Erica reveals she spoke to her son "an hour ago" making it 7:30/8am in New York City. A few minutes later during Anna's broadcast there is a split shot of New York and L.A. both in daylight with blue sky. It is unlikely for there to be daylight in L.A. since it's 4:30/5am there when it's 7:30/8am in N.Y.

  • Goof: The plane that crashed next to Ryan was a Navy F-16. Navy F-16s aren't very common as they are all trainers or "enemy" planes.
