The Fugitive (1963)

Second Sight - S4-E7

Plot hole: Kimble enters the bar in the midst of a fight between photographer Howie and a man he tried to blackmail. Kimble comes in too late to hear what the scuffle is about, yet after breaking it up, he somehow knows all about the incriminating photo that sparked it. (00:06:00)

Glass Tightrope - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Rowland's wife unfolds Kimble's wanted poster, the center crease is peaked toward her. But when we see a close-up of it, the poster has been folded the opposite way, with the crease pointing away from her. (00:41:45)

The Fugitive (1963)

Terror at High Point - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Dan tosses a silver dollar into the puddle of water and we see it sink. A few shots later, though, the coin is visible again, impossibly "floating" on the puddle's surface. (00:05:20)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "The Greatest Enemy": It's full daylight when Robin sends Marion and Much away and stays atop the crag to hold off the sheriff's men. The sky behind him is blue. But in the next moment, as he starts firing arrows at them, there's a setting sun behind him and the sky is red. In the following scenes, we see full daylight and blue skies again. (00:35:20)

The Project Deephole Affair - S2-E26

Visible crew/equipment: When Waverly and Solo walk from the office into the corridor at U.N.C.L.E. HQ, part of the camera rig is showing, moving ahead of them, at the bottom right of the screen. (00:06:45)

Never Wave Goodbye (2) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In Part 1, Kimble worried about Gerard tracing him by a match he left behind. We got a close-up when he tore the match out of the book: it was the 3rd in a row of 5. But here, as he looks at the matchbook and worries again, the close-up shows the only match missing from the book is the 5th one. (00:02:00)

Revealing mistake: When his body is lying in the baggage car, the "dead" chauffeur's eyelids twitch. (00:23:40)

The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Solo and Miss Pogue are trapped in the shipping crate together, his hair combs itself between takes - several times. It's all over his forehead, then is suddenly neatly combed to one side, then is messy again. When the crate is opened, he's well-groomed once more. (00:32:25)

The Chinese Sunset - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: Kimble and Eddie take an elevator down to the parking garage. When the doors open, you can see that there's no break in the floor between the garage and the elevator car. It's solid concrete. (00:28:50)

Echo of a Nightmare - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: During the fight in the farmhouse, Kimble's stunt double is very obvious. You can see his face in several shots. (00:10:50)

The Avengers (1961)

Too Many Christmas Trees - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: During the gun battle outside the lodge, the tray full of bread dropped on the lawn moves itself several feet to the right between takes. (00:41:40)

The Girl From Auntie - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: Steed tosses his opponent over his shoulder during the scuffle. The man lands on his back with his right hand extended over his head. But when the shot cuts to a different angle, both his arms are instantly down at his sides instead. (00:38:25)

The Avengers (1961)

The Girl From Auntie - S4-E17

Factual error: The bad guys are supposedly auctioning off the stolen Mona Lisa. But they and their prospective buyers aren't very art savvy. The painting is more than twice the size of Da Vinci's actual masterpiece. (00:44:50)
