Forever Knight (1992)

Forever Knight (1992)

Fever - S3-E13

Deliberate mistake: At the end, a line apparently cut earlier creates slight confusion. Nick says to Nat, "When LaCroix asked you why?" (why save vampires). In the earlier scene as shown, the elusive LaCroix spoke only briefly to Nat in the lab, and never asked her that question. (00:42:20)

The Human Factor - S3-E16

Trivia: The car blown up in the alley was Geraint Wyn Davies' own, an old one he wanted very much to get rid of. So when given the chance to direct this episode, he decided to give the car a fiery TV send-off. (00:32:00)

Forever Knight (1992)

The Human Factor - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: When Robert is shot, the car blowing up in the alley is sort of half an explosion, abruptly curtailed. Severely cold weather during shooting literally froze the cameras and left only a few seconds of usable footage. That snippet is repeated for effect, but the explosion still looks "cut off" because it is. (00:32:00)

Forever Knight (1992)

The Human Factor - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Twice in this episode, Janette refers to having been a vampire for 800 years. Previous episodes established that while Nick was 800 years old, Janette was 1000. (00:14:45 - 00:33:00)

Forever Knight (1992)

The Human Factor - S3-E16

Plot hole: Throughout the first two seasons, Nick was always able to sense other vampires and to instantly differentiate between vampires and humans. Here, he inexplicably fails to detect that the returned Janette is now mortal. She has to tell him. (00:27:10)

The Four-Steps Affair - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: At the end, Solo & Illya land the helicopter on top of the furniture van. But after the shot of them in the cockpit bumping to a landing, a wide shot shows the copter still hovering in the air above the van. Cut back to them in the cockpit and they're landed again; back to the wide shot, still in the air. (00:44:35)

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Plot hole: The handyman tells the police that he has turned on the power to restore lights in the house. Why, then, is everyone still crawling through the place with flashlights?

Forever Knight (1992)

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Factual error: The costumes in the flashback to Nick's wedding are a mishmash of the mismatched, coming from several different eras, including a full metal suit of armor that's at least 2 centuries ahead of the flashback's period setting in the 1200s. (00:14:00)

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Plot hole: Nick has spent two seasons with the supernatural ability to see perfectly well in the dark. But here, exploring the haunted house alone, he suddenly needs a big neon-blue-beamed flashlight to see where he's going. (00:31:30)

Dead of Night - S3-E14

Plot hole: Nick mysteriously forgets that he can fly in this episode. With the ghosts of his past victims in hot pursuit, he trips and tumbles all the way down a full flight of stairs. Any other time, he'd simply have flown away. (00:38:10)

The Naked Time - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Initially, the Enterprise orbits Psi 2000 as the planet turns westward. But in later shots, on the bridge view screen, the planet has reversed directions and now turns eastward. (00:04:05 - 00:12:00)

The Dead Zone (1983)

Revealing mistake: The stunt dummy that falls from the balcony in John's stead is pretty obvious. Its blank face is even visible briefly as it falls, and again when it lands. (01:37:40)

Devil in the Dark - S1-E26

Character mistake: Shatner fluffs his line when asking the mining engineers whether they've posted sentries. He asks if they've posted "centuries" instead. (00:05:20)
