The Twilight Zone

The Odyssey of Flight 33 - S2-E18

Character mistake: The real speed that was reported was 3,000 knots. At one point, the plane encountered a bright flash, and violent shaking. The Captain surmised that they broke the sound barrier. 3,000 knots equates to over 3,000mph. The sound barrier (Mach 1) is about 767mph, and the captain would know that.

Movie Nut

Elegy - S1-E20

Character mistake: The "frozen" woman on the stairs during the welcome mayor scene repeatedly blinks her eyes.


From Agnes - With Love - S5-E20

Character mistake: Using a Texas Instruments TI-89 Titanium, the seventeenth root of 9,000,355,126,606 is 5.781163783, which means the first prime number greater is seven.


A Kind of a Stopwatch - S5-E4

Other mistake: When McNulty uses the stopwatch to rob a bank, he goes through a small wooden door and past the employees. With time frozen, the small door should have stayed open but immediately swings shut.

Come Wander with Me - S5-E34

Trivia: Producer William Froug rejected an extremely nervous young singer/actress auditioning for the part of Mary Rachel, and recalls thinking that "I'll probably kick myself. She'll probably be a big star." He turned out to be right on both counts. The aspiring young singer's name was Liza Minnelli.
