Revealing mistake: At the very end, a bat flying out of the mist toward the camera was intended to imply that Barnabas had taken bat form and could thus be around for a sequel. But through the haze, Barnabas can still be seen lying on the floor when the bat flies past. (01:36:25)

Revealing mistake: When Willie is hit in the back by the bolt from Jeff's crossbow, the outline of the packing material used to catch the arrow is visible under his coat. (01:32:00)

Star Trek (1966)

Turnabout Intruder - S3-E24

Revealing mistake: For the final time in "Star Trek's" 3-season run, Chekov mysteriously vanishes from the bridge to be replaced by that tall blond doppelganger, thanks to an old piece of 1st season stock footage used for the special effects insertion of the view screen. The costumes are also noticeably different from 3rd season's uniforms. (00:14:05)

Forever Knight (1992)

The Games Vampires Play - S3-E15

Factual error: At the end, Nick recites the "you have the right to remain silent" spiel to Rita as he arrests her. Suspects in Canada, where this show is set, are not "read their rights." That's a U.S. law (the Miranda Act) and it isn't observed north of the border. (00:41:45)

The Brain-Killer Affair - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: Solo pushes the chief from Calcutta's wheelchair into an elevator in UNCLE headquarters. The floor going into the lift, however, is visibly solid, with no break to allow for a real elevator's movement. (00:14:55)

Turnabout Intruder - S3-E24

Revealing mistake: During the court martial scene, a directorial error led to Kirk's exit from the briefing room in the wrong direction. He walks off screen into what would have been a solid wall or corner. The briefing room's only door is on the other side of the room. (00:39:15)

Turnabout Intruder - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: During Spock's court martial, Chekov says that General Order 4 is the only exception to Starfleet's no-death-penalty policy, and Sulu and the others agree. However, according to "The Menagerie," that exception is General Order 7, not 4.

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Audio problem: In Zarabeth's cave, when McCoy says, "You've been dishonest with me, Spock," his lips are completely out of sync with his words. (00:42:00)

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: When the prosecutor visits the cell, Kirk's hands on the bars change positions when the camera angle reverses. From the inside, there's one bar between Kirk's hands. From outside, there are two. (00:28:10)

The Corbomite Maneuver - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: After they've blasted the cube, Kirk and Spock are discussing repairs on the bridge. Spock's earpiece is in place one minute, but vanishes the next when the camera angle changes. (00:13:30)

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

Visible crew/equipment: When Kirk is agonizing over the sound of Surak's supposed cries for help, an equipment shadow, possibly from a boom mike, skates across the rocks behind his left shoulder. (00:40:00)

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Kirk & Spock beam down with Lincoln to the supposedly newly-created non-volcanic landscape, there are footprints all over the ground. They disappear a few shots later, though.

Star Trek (1966)

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

Deliberate mistake: So that he can look in the right direction, toward Lincoln, a shot of Kirk is reversed before the first battle, putting his uniform insignia on the wrong side. (00:25:45)

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

The Cloudminders - S3-E21

The Cloudminders - S3-E21
