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.

Don't Forget the Diver - S5-E2

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

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.

Andy and Helen Get Married - S1-E1

Other mistake: Sam Jones' son, Mike, tells Aunt Bee that the farmhouse has been in their family for 150 years. While showing Aunt Bee a photo album, he points to a photo and says, "That's my great-great-grandfather who started this farm." Pointing to a woman in the same photo, Mike says, "That's my great-grandmother. She lives in Philadelphia." It is very unlikely that the daughter of a man who had started a farm 150 years earlier would still be alive. Assuming the man started the farm when he was in his 20s, he would have had to father a child when he was in his 70s and she would now have to be in her 100s.
