The Never-Never Affair - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: Solo's stunt double's face can be seen several times during the fight scene in the Thrush garage. (00:36:35)

Jean G

The Never-Never Affair - S1-E25

Plot hole: Mr. Varner spots Illya down the street and says, "I think he's another U.N.C.L.E. agent." His uncertainty is odd: he helped identify and chase Illya earlier in the episode, so he already knew to be fact what he only "thinks" in this later scene. (00:38:35)

The Never-Never Affair - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: U.N.C.L.E. headquarters must be full of elevators that don't go anywhere. When Mandy enters Solo's elevator car, she crosses a solid threshold with no break in the floor. (00:10:35)

The Never-Never Affair - S1-E25

Factual error: Mandy reveals at the end that she's been carrying the microdot hidden inside her contact lens. Ouch. Any foreign object placed inside a contact, especially the hard glass contacts of the 60s, would cause irritation severe enough to make the lens unwearable and the eye very, very red. (00:44:15)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Time Squad - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During Blake's first encounter with Cally, the smudges on the front of his tunic (including a big chalky footprint left by her boot) disappear, reappear and rearrange themselves several times between shots. (00:31:20)

Blake's 7 (1978)

Time Squad - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The alien hiding in the hold throws a large blue tool at Jenna. It strikes her on the back of her right arm. But in the next shot, she's holding her left arm, and Gan later treats a bruise on her left arm, nowhere near the spot where the tool hit her. (00:27:45)

Star Trek (1966)

The Cage - S1-E1

Plot hole: Pike says he doesn't want women on his bridge, Number One being the one and only exception, and he keeps ordering Colt off it. His apology to Number One indicates that A) he doesn't think of her as female, and B) she's the only exception to his rule. So how does he overlook the very female crew-woman seated at the science station? (00:06:55)

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Vargas beams up to the Liberator just ahead of Blake, Gan & Vila, he challenges them when they arrive from the other side of the room - by stepping out of the teleport bay. But they're standing in the teleport bay, and Liberator has only one. So exactly where is Vargas standing? (00:48:15)

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: Stock footage of the London's launch from Earth is run in reverse when it lands, supposedly 8 months later, on Cygnus Alpha. What are the odds that a remote penal planet will have a launching pad with configurations, lights, buildings and background terrain all completely identical to the launch stage on Earth? (00:10:20)

The Cage - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the doctor is mixing the drink and Pike gets up off the bed to accept it, an equipment shadow sweeps across the left side of the screen. (00:03:55)

Star Trek (1966)

The Cage - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the laser cannon starts firing at the Talosian rockface, a styrofoam block falls and rolls away on the left side of the screen. After a brief shot of the crew, we see the cannon still firing, and the exact same block falls and rolls off screen on the left again. (00:30:15)

Star Trek (1966)

The Cage - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: Due to a poor edit, there's an odd jump cut and a change of lighting just as the Keeper comes out of the elevator on his way to an attempt to steal the laser pistols from the cell. (00:50:40)

Star Trek (1966)

The Cage - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: In the first illusion, Vina runs down the path from the fortress to Pike. When we cut to close-ups, they're both suddenly standing much closer to the building than before, and the fortress has changed color from brownish orange to white. (00:23:50)

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Though no one touches him, the London crewman lying dead in the transfer tube changes positions between the time Blake and co. first board Liberator, and the time Raiker enters the tube and shoots at Blake. (00:44:10 - 00:49:00)

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: A large white cushion, knocked askew when Blake tosses Avon over the flight couch, has righted itself a few shots later, as Avon gets up from the deck. (00:46:25)

Space Fall - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: The boom shadow is visible moving swiftly across the actors' heads when Avon says, "You've got an army of five, Blake." (00:16:40)

Space Fall - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Aboard the London, as Raiker opens the rec-room door, a boom mike shadow moves across Avon's face. (00:04:30)

The Way Back - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Tel Varon walks in front of the wall screen in the justice data center, a flash of gibberish lettering and a blue matte line both appear briefly above his head. (00:36:40)

Jean G

The Brain-Killer Affair - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: In the stairwell, Illya shoots the second Thrush gunman one time. When the man starts to fall, there are no holes or marks at all on his white jacket. A few seconds later, as he finishes falling down the stairs, three bullet holes suddenly appear in his coat, even though Illya only shot him once. (00:42:00)

Jean G

Revealing mistake: Barnabas lives by candlelight in Collinwood's "Old House," a 200-year-old mansion supposedly never wired for electricity. But just before Barnabas throws Willie down the stairs, there's a light switch visible on the wall behind them. (01:04:30)
