Continuity mistake: In the scene after the second crash, when the pilot and his wife "borrow" the jeep to return to the base, the shot is flipped, reversing the positions of the husband and wife in a mirror image of the real vehicle, placing the "driver" in the passenger position and the spare tire, which should be on the near side, is now on the far side. In the next shot, as the vehicle nears the base, everything suddenly resumes the correct perspective.Darryl
Continuity mistake: When Dr. Stone's assistant helps him up from the floor, there's a lopsided, circular diagram drawn on the chalkboard behind them. One shot later, the diagram has changed into a perfectly round circle and has moved itself several inches higher on the board. (00:06:10)Jean G
Continuity mistake: When the lab equipment shorts out after the earthquake, the unconscious Major Brothers is lying with his head propped up against the wall. But when Hamilton reaches him in the next shot, he's suddenly lying flat and is nowhere near the wall. (00:21:45)Jean G
Trivia: This is the only Outer Limits episode that lacks both opening and closing narration. It was absent because "Forms" was the unsold pilot for a series called The Unknown. A second version, stripped of all its supernatural elements (Tone was simply a mad scientist, not a real time traveler), also failed to sell.Jean G
