Spokes - S4-E2

Audio problem: When Buck orders the would-be killers out of the hotel room, his lips don't move in sync with the words he speaks.

The Prisoner (1967)

Living in Harmony - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: While Number 6 is in the jail cell, he lights a cigar and starts blowing smoke. Just a few shots later, the smoke has vanished and he lights the cigar again.

The Prisoner (1967)

Living in Harmony - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Twice in this episode (once in the saloon and once in the sheriff's office), Number 6's coat is unbuttoned when he's inside, but has instantly buttoned itself up when he runs outside.

Continuity mistake: While Number 6 is being dragged behind the horse, a red bandanna tied around his hand disappears and reappears several times between shots.

Generation - S3-E25

Revealing mistake: Due to budget cuts in the 3rd season, an L.A. soundstage replica of the ranch house replaced the outdoor set, which was in Old Tuscon. The replacement was often painfully obvious. In this episode, a stock exterior shot of the real house, with its outside walls undecorated, contrasts with the mock-up, which has mounted cattle horns all over it.

Auld Lang Syne - S3-E24

Revealing mistake: When Buck comes across the first of two bodies in the desert, we see only the dead man's booted legs protruding from the bushes. When he finds the second body, the exact same shot of legs and boots (with the same bushes and rocks) is used over again with the film reversed.

Auld Lang Syne - S3-E24

Factual error: The Apache spearhead Buck appropriates is very obviously made from machine-tooled steel. Indian tribes in 1870s Arizona made their weapons points from hand-knapped stone and on rare occasions, iron. They never developed steel-making technology.

Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When the Colonel enters Number 2's office/control room, the doors close as he comes down the ramp. In the next shot, however, the doors are still open.

Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: In Number 2's office, the Colonel stands at the bottom of the ramp. In the next shot, however, he's suddenly beside the tea cart instead.

Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling - S1-E13

Audio problem: When Number 6 tells the Kandersfeld waiter that he took some photographs, we hear his words, but his mouth doesn't move.

The Lieutenant - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: A heavy black bag falls from the Simmons' wagon as they pull away from their house. A short time later, it has disappeared from the spot where it landed.

The Lieutenant - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: When John runs out of the Simmons' house, a jet contrail is faintly visible in the sky at the far right of the screen.

New Hostess in Town - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: After Buck knocks Bates out, Victoria takes the outlaw's clothes as a disguise in order to escape. Miraculously, Bates' clothes, despite his being a foot taller and considerably heavier than Victoria, fit her perfectly. She doesn't even have to roll up the shirt sleeves or the trouser legs.

It's Your Funeral - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: Monique's position on the floor reverses while she's unconscious. When she first collapses, her feet point to the corner of the room. When she comes to, her head is toward the corner. When she gets up, her feet are oriented toward the corner once again.

The Prisoner (1967)

It's Your Funeral - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: A sleeping Number 6 is being observed by the Village girl. While she watches him, his bed clothes mysteriously rearrange themselves. First they're disarrayed, then they're neatly tucked over him and his robe has moved to a different place on the bed. A few shots later, when he wakes up, his pillow disappears.

It's Your Funeral - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the bell tower, watch the beach in the background. In one take, the tide is in. In the next, it is suddenly at low tide, with much more of the beach exposed.
