Best TV mistakes of 1968

Here Come the Brides picture

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Robert Brown wears a gold turtleneck sweater with his leather outfit throughout the series. Though it's more than 100 years beyond the show's 19th Century setting, he and the producers decided that he looked good in it, so allowed the anachronism to stand.

A Sour Note - S2-E2

Factual error: Gino commits a murder using a six-shooter with a silencer attached, and his shot doesn't make any noise. But it should have. Though it's a long-standing Hollywood cliché, a revolver with a silencer wouldn't be silent at all. Unlike automatic weapons, revolvers are open-chambered, which allows sound to escape. They can't be muffled with a silencer.

Log 1: The Impossible Mission - S1-E1

Character mistake: They turn left onto Moorpark St and they say into the radio they are going east on Moorpark. However, the street sign shows they are going west.

The Incomparable Connie Walker - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: "The Incomparable Connie Walker": When Dillon visits Mayor Walker's house, Walker's red carnation is on his left lapel. But one shot of him is, for some reason, reversed, causing the carnation to switch itself to his right lapel for a moment.

Aunt Bee's Cruise: Part 2 - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Aunt Bee and Captain Wolford are sitting on the porch. The Captain extends his left arm behind Bee's head and rests his hand on her shoulder. In the close-up of Bee, there is no hand on her shoulder. In the following shot, the Captain's left hand is in his lap.

The Creed - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: The hole the Spindrift crew creates in the wooden crate changes size and shape from when the crew makes and enters it to when the giant picks up the crate.
