The Outer Limits

The Premonition - S2-E16

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.

Behold, Eck! - S2-E3

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)

The Human Factor - S1-E8

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)

The Forms of Things Unknown - S1-E32

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.

The Forms of Things Unknown - S1-E32

Trivia: Part of Dominic Frontiere's haunting musical score for this episode later became the theme and background music for the TV series The Invaders, a show for which Frontiere served as the primary composer.

The Duplicate Man - S2-E13

Trivia: The bird-beaked alien megasoid from this episode made a "guest appearance" in the first Star Trek pilot, shot the same year (1964). It can be glimpsed in one of the Keeper's enclosures in the uncut version of "The Cage." (00:02:00)
