Switch (1975)

Three for the Money - S2-E21

Audio problem: Volkswagen Beetles had a very distinctive "putt-putt" engine noise. In every scene with the bad guy following Ryan and McBride in a VW Beetle, the sound effects dubbed in post-production belong to a much larger, standard American car, and not to a VW at all. (00:26:00)

The Rebel - S5-E11

Audio problem: Throughout the episode, Alex's voice is very badly overdubbed, and his lips never quite match the spoken words.

Moby Dick (1956)

Audio problem: Throughout the opening scenes, the innkeeper's lips are out of synch with his dialog due to a less-than-stellar job of overdubbing. The voice substituted for the original actor's belongs to director John Huston. (00:05:00 - 00:13:30)

Dark Shadows (1966)

Show generally

Audio problem: 1966: While Constable Carter is grilling Burke Devlin, you can hear crew members talking loudly backstage. In apparent annoyance, "Burke" raises his voice and all but shouts his next line.

Blake's 7 (1978)

Dawn of the Gods - S3-E4

Audio problem: Just as Zen is reporting that it can find no stars for navigational reference points, something crashes very noisily off screen. No, it isn't the arriving Dayna's clunky shoes. Much too loud, unless she's throwing them at something.

Columbo (1971)

Any Old Port in a Storm - S3-E2

Audio problem: Pay phones always dropped your coin into an internal cash box when you finished your call. In the bar, Columbo makes two calls, and after the first, we hear the coin drop as it should. When he finishes the second call, we should hear that coin fall, too, but it doesn't. (00:34:05)

The Night of the Cut-Throats - S3-E11

Audio problem: Arte's hand and finger movements on the saloon piano don't even begin to match the notes actually being played. (00:07:30)

Jean G

Caught on Tape - S2-E15

Audio problem: When Moore's widow sees her lover being brought in, she shouts "Roger!" - but her lips don't move. (00:33:05)

The Crowd Roars (1932)

Audio problem: During Joe and Eddie's first race, you can hear the sound of squealing tires as they round the bend. But they're driving on a dirt track. Tires don't squeal on dirt. (00:15:40)

Kidnapped (1960)

Audio problem: During David and Alan's argument in the rainstorm, neither actor's lip movements match the dialogue. (01:14:00)

A Cube of Sugar - S1-E26

Audio problem: When Barney and Willy are digging their tunnel toward the prison basement, Barney's voice and lip movements are badly out of sync. (00:31:05)

Jean G

Audio problem: Pay phones are programmed to drop the coins into an internal storage box after the receiver is placed back in the cradle. But at the airport, when Whitfield hangs up on his mother (and he didn't call collect), there's no sound of coins dropping. (00:38:00)

Quantum Leap (1989)

Disco Inferno - April 1, 1976 - S2-E2

Audio problem: When Sam says "I'd rather be dead," his lips don't move in sync with the words. (00:01:35)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Goes Camping - S8-E12

Audio problem: "Mr. Monk Goes Camping": When Monk sees the bear, his scream is too-obviously dubbed over with a woman's voice. (In all the previews and commercials for this episode, however, he's shown screaming in his own voice.) (00:27:05)

Night Gallery (1970)

Dr. Stringfellow's Rejuvenator - S2-E28

Audio problem: When Stringfellow beats his drum to attract a crowd to his medicine show, the sound doesn't match the strikes he's making with his drumstick. (00:01:00)

Jean G

Room 2426 - S3-E22

Audio problem: When Decker and the professor walk across the college campus, there's a badly-looped bit of dialogue that causes the professor's line to continue after his lips have stopped moving. (00:05:05)

Quantum Leap (1989)

Thou Shalt Not... - February 2, 1974 - S2-E7

Audio problem: At the dining room table, we hear Karen's voice say "It's all right, Uncle David." But her lips don't move. (00:14:00)

I Spy (1965)

Carry Me Back to Old Tsing-Tao - S1-E3

Audio problem: During Scott and Kelly's conversation at the bistro table, so much equipment noise is picked up by the mike that portions of the dialog are drowned out. (00:11:20)

Night Gallery (1970)

Whisper - S3-E14

Audio problem: In the woods, we hear the continuing sound effect of howling wind. But not a leaf is moving on the trees, and Irene and Charlie's clothes and hair aren't even ruffled. (00:23:00)

I Spy (1965)

Rome ... Take Away Three - S2-E16

Audio problem: Scott and Kelly are talking as they wait to cross a Rome street - but Kelly's lips are completely out of sync with his voice. (00:07:20)
