Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: Kirk uses a submachine-gun to shoot the lock of the cell holding Spock and McCoy, but no bullet holes appear, nor is the lock damaged.

Star Trek (1966)

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: A Roman guard empties half a magazine of bullets from his submachine-gun into Flavius, but there are no bullet holes in his body, nor blood on the floor from the wounds inflicted by the bullets.

Star Trek (1966)

Trivia: In the original series, Dr. McCoy never prefaced his description of being a doctor and not another profession with "Dammit, Jim!" For example, he never said, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer!"

Star Trek (1966)

Space Seed - S1-E23

Stupidity: In sick bay, Khan wants to read the Enterprise's technical manuals, explaining to Kirk he was once an engineer. Kirk acquiesces, saying they are available to ANY patient on the viewing screen. Apparently Captain Kirk does not seem to mind total strangers (this time with Napoleonic complexes) reading detailed documents outlining the strengths and weaknesses of a Federation starship.

Star Trek (1966)

The Return of the Archons - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: The rocks pelting Kirk and the landing party when all hell breaks loose bounce when hitting the actors, the brick walls, and the concrete sidewalk.

Tyrant (2014)

Two Graves - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Before getting on the helicopter, Sophia and Leila are abreast of each other at the chopper's door, but the next instant cut shows Leila getting ready to board first, and Sophia behind her.

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Gordon and the troopers bring the unconscious Venusian ladies in and place them in the chairs, the chairs are almost in the middle of the room. When the girls come to, the backs of the chairs are right up against a wall.

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: The wires used to open and close the pie plate's entry hatch are visible.

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of a boom mic is visible on a table top in the saloon.

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Trivia: The sound effect of the pie plate's hatch opening and closing are from the T.V. series, "I Dream of Jeannie", when Jeannie enters or exits her bottle as a cloud of smoke.

Fury (2014)

Trivia: Gordy Travis' nickname "Coon-ass" indicates he is most likely from the state of Louisiana, as the residents of that state proudly call themselves "Coon-asses". They also proudly display the name on their vehicles in the form of bumper stickers.

Continuity mistake: On his horse, Teddy Roosevelt greets Larry and extends his hand as Larry enters the scene and extends his. A quick cut to Teddy's point of view and Larry walks up and extends his hand again.

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: West describes to Artie his movements through the fortress using a model of the structure sitting on a table with a green table cloth and gold trim. West's left hand is resting on the table, as is a clear glass dish, as well. Close ups show the model close to the edge where the dish was and West's left hand on his thigh.

Scott215

Other mistake: The camera focus is on Lt. Weaver during the German armor attack, but off to his left (barely in the scene) Sgt. Duquesne drops a live rifle grenade as he is foolishly flipping them in the air before securing them to his rifle and firing them at the Germans.

Logan's Run (1977)

Logan's Run - S1-E1

Trivia: In this episode, actress Lina Raymond introduces herself as "Siri" in a voice exactly like the Siri voice heard on Apple iPhones. This episode and the introduction of The Siri voice for Apple products were nearly thirty years apart.

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Factual error: Oddball tells Kelly their commander had been trying to get them killed ever since they landed at Omaha (beach). Oddball's tanks are part of the U.S. sixth Armored division (the Super Sixth, as the unit shoulder patch on his jacket indicates) which actually landed at Utah beach on July 18, 1944.

The Night Dr. Loveless Died - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Artie's gun and holster are riding high on his right hip, but much lower when Triste grabs it in the close up.

Scott215

The Night Dr. Loveless Died - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The long shot of Artie and Triste show his guns well above the window sill. The close up of Triste snatching his gun shows the siding of the house well below the window sill.

Scott215

The Night Dr. Loveless Died - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Eatlier, West smashes the window and removes the drape so he and Liebnicht can escape. Later, when Artie and Triste arrive at the same window, the glass and the drape are not gone, but intact as if West never caused the damage.
