Quantum Leap (1989)

Mirror Image - August 8, 1953 - S5-E22

Audio problem: During Sam's conversation with the bearded Russian miner, each of them plainly mouths the word "stone," but for some reason, the word is both times dubbed over with "slate." (00:33:10)

The Fugitive (1963)

A.P.B. - S2-E28

Revealing mistake: Matt Mooney pulls open the freight car's door, and we can see the swiftly passing landscape outside, but not a hair on his head is disturbed by the wind. Rear screen projections don't generate much of a breeze. (00:10:05)

Quantum Leap (1989)

Mirror Image - August 8, 1953 - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: When Sam tells Al the bartender that he knows another Al who uses the term "caca," Al leans over toward him to say, "Common expression." The camera angle reverses, and Al is abruptly not leaning any more, but standing back from the bar in his earlier position. (00:16:25)

The Fugitive (1963)

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: The one-armed man orders Chandler to get up off the ground. In close-up, we see him sit up. But in the very next shot, he's flat on his back and sits up again. (00:11:50)

The Fugitive (1963)

A.P.B. - S2-E28

Revealing mistake: At the beginning, the stunt man seen running toward the train in profile (when Kimble jumps aboard the freight car) is very easy to spot. (00:01:50)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Three Dead Cows at Makapuu (1) - S2-E23

Visible crew/equipment: When the morgue lab techs come out into the hall to report to McGarrett, the closing glass door captures a brief reflection of the moving camera. (00:09:05)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Three Dead Cows at Makapuu (1) - S2-E23

Audio problem: The landing jumbo jet's tires start making skidding noises before they've actually touched the ground. (00:13:45)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Three Dead Cows at Makapuu (2) - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When the surfer examines the test tube in his beach shack, the level of white powder inside the tube keeps changing between shots. It's nearly full, then has only an inch inside, then is full again, etc. (01:22:00)

Hawaii Five-O (1968)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout first season: Due to stock footage spliced in from the pilot film, McGarrett's '68 4-door Mercury sedan often peeled away from the Ionali palace and then turned into a '67 2-door coupe as it cruised down Honolulu's streets.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Alan a Dale": Lady Mildred rides side-saddle. But when Gisburne gallops away with her, some shots reveal that the stunt woman riding the fast-moving horse is astride it full straddle. Her skirt is blown back just enough to see a brief glimpse of the stunt rider's real leg on the horse's right, and the fake pair of legs in side-saddle position on its left. For just a moment, the lady appears to have three legs. (00:20:00)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Alan a Dale": Within just a few minutes of falling into the water, getting soaked and crawling back out, Maid Marion's hair is blow-dried and fluffy once again. (00:08:15)

The Fugitive (1963)

Corner of Hell - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: When Kimble leaps from the truck and runs into the woods, the stunt double's face is visible. (00:07:00)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Robin & the Sorcerer, Part 2": To rescue Marion, Robin kills the bad guy by stabbing him with the silver arrow. A few moments later, after much writhing and screaming, Robin pulls the arrow from the corpse. But its tip and shaft are perfectly clean. Not a drop of blood in sight. (00:40:00)

The Fugitive (1963)

Corner of Hell - S2-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Gerard drives away in his '64 Ford Galaxie, and the side of the shiny new car captures a clear reflection of several studio lights and reflectors. (00:10:10)

Jean G

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Service Station" (Adventure 6, Part 2): After the 1940s couple arrives at the diner, the tomato-shaped condiment dish keeps migrating to different spots on their table, even though no one is ever seen touching it. (00:19:30 - 00:22:50)

The Bow-Wow Affair - S1-E20

Visible crew/equipment: In the woods in the dead of night, Illya opens his car door and captures the reflection of the big round studio light illuminating the scene. (00:35:45)

Jean G

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: "Service Station" (Adventure 6, Part 2): When Johnny Jack sits down at the cafe table, the shadow of a crew member's moving hand is visible on the shoulder and sleeve of his big gray coat. (00:35:45)

Factual error: "Robin & the Sorcerer, Part 2": Kirkley's Abbey has a modern-day asphalt road running past it. (00:04:15)

Jean G

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Robin & the Sorcerer, Part 2": There are two arrows already on the target when Robin's splits one of them. When the target is carried back to the review stand, only the two splitting arrows are there (not even a hole in the cloth where the third should be), and those have somehow moved from the upper right sector of the bull's eye to its very center. (00:19:50)

The Fugitive (1963)

Tiger Left, Tiger Right - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: We hear Pryor's half of the conversation with the kidnapper, then the tape of both their voices played back by the police. On the tape, Pryor's inflections and pauses are completely different from the "live" conversation. (00:28:30)
