The Twilight Zone

Mirror Image - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When he introduces himself to Millicent inside the train station, Paul is wearing a dripping wet raincoat. It stays wet in the close-ups, but in the next several inter-cut two-shots, it's completely dry.

Elegy - S1-E20

Factual error: The astronauts land on an asteroid said to orbit a binary star 655 million miles from Earth. This is impossible, as that distance would place them well within our solar system. In fact, they'd be inside the orbit of Saturn, where of course there aren't (nor could there be) any extraneous suns. The nearest star to our system is, in fact, trillions (not millions) of miles away.

Come Wander with Me - S5-E34

Trivia: Producer William Froug rejected an extremely nervous young singer/actress auditioning for the part of Mary Rachel, and recalls thinking that "I'll probably kick myself. She'll probably be a big star." He turned out to be right on both counts. The aspiring young singer's name was Liza Minnelli.

The Lonely - S1-E7

Question: Why did they kill Alicia instead of just coming back in a few months, when they could bring Alicia and Corry back together?

Chosen answer: I believe it was just to add dramatic effect. Shooting her could have driven Corry over the edge and I doubt an officer would have really done that. I'm sure that they have done this before (leaving an android to keep someone company) and they never expected a man to fall in love with the droid? Separating the two seems like cruel and unusual punishment. And another thing, being that she was an android I'm sure she has a memory module which they could have easily brought back to earth aboard the ship. It couldn't have weighed more then a few pounds .They could have reconstructed her likeness and installed her memories.

The Eye of the Beholder - S2-E6

Question: Why were two different actress used for the character of Janet Tyler?

Chosen answer: Apparently, the producers wanted a specific look for the face that would be unveiled by the removal of the surgical bandages. Actress Donna Douglas was that face chosen to portray the "ugly" woman, outcast from a State Dictatorship of pig-faced humanoids which values conformity over all else. The voice of actress Maxine Stuart was chosen to portray the desperation and urgency of a patient whose only goal is to fit the "norm." It may seem unusual that they couldn't find one actress with both the looks and the voice required by the role. In this case, it added a certain level of surprise at the reveal, as the face we see isn't the one most of us imagined by the voice alone. But it isn't the only time in Hollywood history when voice and actor haven't matched. Singing voices in musicals were often dubbed over by an alternative performer, rather than finding one actor/actress who could both act and sing the role. And dubbing of a different voice actor has also been used for dramatic effect in other instances, as well. Chalk it up to a dramatic decision.
