* ShipTease: Due to the desire to direct the series for a family audience, the romance between Logan and Jessica is downplayed to the extent that any overt expressions of affection between them could be considered ship-teasing. It's not until the episode "Futurepast", one of the last episodes to be broadcast, that Jessica actually says she loves Logan (and not to her face). Ironically, the episode spends more time shipping the RidiculouslyHumanRobots Rem and Adriana (a one-off guest character).

(After that, the Jessica-Logan relationship becomes more overtly romantic, however).

\n* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: While the series in general is aimed at families, the episode "Carousel" is closer in tone to the movie, with a graphic death as well as a rather frank discussion about how Jessica may need to sleep with Logan in order to determine if his memories can be restored (and she eventually attempts to seduce him while wearing a disguise that involves an outfit far skimpier than she normally wears - a design closer in fact to what the movie version of Jessica wore).

* SpecialEffectFailure: Logan's vehicle is supposed to be a hovercraft, yet wheels are clearly visible in some distance shot.

* FridgeLogic: Why would a force of practical assassins need a weapon with a stun setting? A Sandman's job is to kill Runners so why would they ever need to NOT shoot to kill?
** FridgeBrilliance: Considering Jessica's character demonstrates there is an ''organized'' Runner's movement, a stun setting would be useful if you'd like to interrogate someone or use them as bait to catch their fellow subversives. It's also a nod to the books where a Sandman's pistol had several settings, including a "tangler" for live capture. Sandman were not just for killing Runners - they were the society's law enforcement. Unless you were on Last Day and trying to run, they were no more or less a threat than an average beat cop.

** During one shot of the Carrousel scene, you can clearly see the wires holding some of the people in the air.

** During one shot of the Carrousel scene, you can clearly see the wires holding some of the people in the air. When this footage was reused for the TV series, this was also visible. It's been speculated that this wasn't an error, and that the citizens were actually meant to be hoisted up on wires in order to attempt renewal.

** The small scale of the city models are painfully obvious and unintentionally make it look like a model train set. The opening at least [[ObscuredSpecialEffects tries to hide the scale with an out of focus lens]], but it only helps so much, and the rest of the film shows the model sets plain and clear.

The water makes the city being a miniature particularly obvious since the surface tension/waves are out of proportion with the buildings.

** Box is convincing enough for the time, but in a close-up shot while he's talking you can see Roscoe Lee Browne's teeth.
