K is for Kill: The Tiger Awakes (1) - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Steed is seen driving along with Purdey and Gambit in rural France. The camera was probably mounted on the front passenger side door, pointing in.

Ripping Yarns picture

Whinfrey's Last Case - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: The opening scene was shot twice, complete with a rear-end automobile collision in the foreground for both takes. The initial collision destroyed the taillights of the first car and the headlights of the second car and ruptured the second car's radiator on impact, spilling its contents into the street. The production crew attempted to sweep away the debris with a broom before the scene was reshot. If you examine the roadway before the two cars appear in this scene, you will see a prominent splatter on the pavement that has been swept with a broom almost precisely where the cars impact again moments later.

Anyone for Suicide? - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the show, the squadron has to land on a carrier deck. The shots from the sky go back and forth between a straight deck carrier and an angled carrier deck. Also, an angled carrier wasn't put into use until the early 50's by the British, Black Sheep takes place in WWII.

The Bionic Woman picture

The Pyramid - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: As Jaime starts 'cutting' along the window with her bionic fingernail, the precut outline is quite visible from the sides, and her left hand is resting on the ledge of the first hole she cut, to give her leverage. Which would be impossible for her to do, as it's raw glass and would leave bleed marks on her hands. (00:34:30 - 00:35:20)
