A Hundred Yards over the Rim - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When Joe (the diner owner) hands Christian Horn the glass of water, Horn grabs it by the base of the glass and drinks from it holding it the same way, almost to the last drop. The camera quickly switches the angle to show Horn finishing it close up, but this time he's holding it with his fingers wrapped around the glass. The camera switches the angle again as he's handing it back to Joe, once again holding it by the base.

The Twilight Zone (1959)

Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up - S2-E28

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, the trooper answers the phone declaring the bridge is safe to cross but the driver is still worried. The trooper says "We'll go on ahead, cross the bridge first." When Mr. Ross returns to the diner, he tells Haley the bridge wasn't safe. It collapsed. The state police car, the bus, everything went into the river with no survivors, except him of course. Here's the problem. The troopers were going to cross the bridge first to check its safety, then let the bus cross (1 vehicle at a time). That means only one vehicle could have made the bridge collapse, not both at the same time. If the police car made it across safely, then the bus caused it to collapse. If the police car caused it to fall, the bus would not have gone anywhere near the bridge. Therefore, the story Ross gives Haley throws off the whole point of the police going across first.

Suggested correction: It's simply a story he made up walking back to the diner. It's clear he caused the bridge to collapse and made sure all the vehicles went in.

Doubtful. He was very clear and precise about everything that happened on that bridge. Besides, he explained exactly how he survived, and the plans of his friends landing soon. There were no more secrets at this point. Why make up the bridge story?

The Fear - S5-E35

Other mistake: As Trooper Franklin is shining his light on the side of the car showing the fingerprints, notice the front passenger's door. The key hole and the black painted rim of it is not covered by the fingerprint, or paint as it turns out to be. But regardless, it's not covered. (00:14:15)
