Best TV mistakes of 1970
Revealing mistake: UFO - Timelash - in this episode the aliens with the help of 'turncoat' Turner have frozen a moment in time in which they will attack and destroy SHADO HQ. Everything and everyone is frozen in place - except for the guy in the background walking across the road during Straker's and Turner's 'car' chase in the 'Harlington/Straker' go carts.
Continuity mistake: In an episode fairly late in the life of the show, Lou Grant says that when Mary came to interview for a job at the station, she bumped into the desk in his office and said, "Excuse me" to the inanimate object. However, we saw that interview in the very first episode, and no such thing happened.
Continuity mistake: In the opening credits of the first season of The Odd Couple, Felix is moving in "with his childhood friend", Oscar. In a subsequent season, a storyline does a flashback to say that Felix and Oscar met when they were both jurors at a trial. Soon after, they cut the word "childhood" on most of the openings after people called the station to mention the mistake.
Continuity mistake: When McCloud and Broadhurst are driving around in the squad car, the vehicle changes in their closeups. Note the light atop the hood, the stickers with the police and unit number on the hood, the rearview mirror's vanishing act, etc.
