The Outer Limits

Soldier - S2-E1

Character mistake: Dr. Kagan, who's a scientist and should definitely know better, points to Earth's solar system on the chart and calls it "our galaxy." This is roughly the equivalent of mistaking a dot this size [.] for the entirety of North America. (00:23:30)

Expanding Human - S2-E4

Character mistake: Someone in the set decorating department must have failed first-year Spanish. The name of the apartment complex (Spanish for "The Flowers") is prominently displayed over the archway, but has both words misspelled, reading "Los Floras." It should be "Las Flores." (00:06:20)

Behold, Eck! - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Stone's assistant helps him up from the floor, there's a lopsided, circular diagram drawn on the chalkboard behind them. One shot later, the diagram has changed into a perfectly round circle and has moved itself several inches higher on the board. (00:06:10)

The Forms of Things Unknown - S1-E32

Trivia: This is the only Outer Limits episode that lacks both opening and closing narration. It was absent because "Forms" was the unsold pilot for a series called The Unknown. A second version, stripped of all its supernatural elements (Tone was simply a mad scientist, not a real time traveler), also failed to sell.
