The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: Here, in the opening scenes at U.N.C.L.E. headquarters, as well as in a number of other first season episodes, the unmarried Illya is inexplicably wearing a wedding ring. (00:02:35)

The Paradise Syndrome - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Miramanee and her companion first see Kirk at the obelisk, the two women are standing, holding their fruit baskets, just inches from each other. In the very next, reverse angle shot, they're suddenly several feet apart. (00:09:10)

Star Trek (1966)

Spock's Brain - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: "Trek's" new 3rd season uniforms were tighter-fitting than their velour predecessors, presenting a problem for some actors. When the landing party beams down in this episode, the outline of William Shatner's tummy-wrapping girdle is very visibly showing through his costume. (00:13:10)

Forever Knight (1992)

Baby Baby - S2-E24

Revealing mistake: At the episode's end, the sharp, moving background of nighttime Toronto from the top of the CN Tower suddenly shifts to a still, blurry (and glaringly obvious) matte image. The scene was partly shot atop the actual tower, but because high winds and sway made the location too dangerous, it was abandoned, and the bulk of the scene had to be shot in studio and processed. (00:37:15)

Forever Knight (1992)

Partners of the Month - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: While he's talking to Janette at the Raven, the level of fluid in Schanke's cocktail changes all by itself from several inches down to nearly full again, even though he's been sipping at it throughout their conversation. (00:34:55)

Forever Knight (1992)

Crazy Love - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: The flashbacks here contradict series canon. Nick's victim, Amaya, is shown to have been bitten (by him) several times. In every other instance, unless he had multiple captive ladies to "sip" from, Nick's bite was fatal in one go. In fact, it was a major recurring plot point that Nick "couldn't stop."

Forever Knight (1992)

Near Death - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: The flashbacks here recount Nick's "bringing across." But for the second time in the series, the recap of this event contradicts the original pilot film version in that the characters have all changed costumes. (00:25:10)

Forever Knight (1992)

Near Death - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: While Nick is interviewing Dr. Linsman, the position of his hands shifts (from lying flat on the desk to held up near his face) every time the camera angle changes. (00:08:15)

Trivia: Richard Matheson wrote this film's script based upon his novel, "Bid Time Return." The book was set in 1896 at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego CA. But because the "Del" couldn't close to accommodate filming, the movie was updated to 1912 and shot at Mackinac Island's Grand Hotel, which is regularly closed to guests for a few months every year.

Forever Knight (1992)

Crazy Love - S2-E26

Factual error: Dr. Shawna Welsh's medical degree, visible on the office wall behind her while she talks to Nick, misspells the name of Johns Hopkins Medical College as "John Hopkins." (00:08:35)

Can't Run, Can't Hide - S2-E10

Plot hole: In the underground bunker, Nick demands to know why the vampires in Vietnam are feeding on the children "when there are so many dead up there". Yet later in this same episode (as well as at other times in the series), it's stated that "Forever Knight's" vampires can't drink from the dead. (00:20:35 - 00:27:40)

Star Trek (1966)

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Plot hole: Scotty is receiving images of the launch, supposedly from an orbiting satellite. But many of the camera views are obviously from ground level, and couldn't possibly have been taken from orbit. It's not a rebroadcast from a ground camera, either. The implication is clearly that Scotty is is picking up a live satellite feed. (00:34:30)

The Project Strigas Affair - S1-E9

Trivia: This episode, shot in 1964, featured guest stars William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. It marked the first time the future Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock ever appeared on screen together.

The Project Strigas Affair - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: When Danfield opens the briefcase, the bundles of money inside are disarrayed, and he jumbles them further. A few shots later, though he hasn't touched them again, they've straightened themselves into nice, neat piles. (00:29:45)

MacGyver (1985)

Three For the Road - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, the hitmen's car loses a hubcap as it chases mobster Tony. In the following shots, however, all four of the car's hubcaps are back in place.

Star Trek (1966)

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Revealing mistake: Isis the cat was disinclined to hold still for special effects shots. When Gary Seven beams off the Enterprise with the cat in his arms, the position of her head jumps several inches as they're dematerializing. (00:10:10)

Star Trek (1966)

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: When Isis meows and enters the inner office, the door is open several inches and the lights inside the room are on. When Gary Seven follows her in a few moments later, the door has nearly closed itself and the lights inside are off. (00:20:25)
