The Outer Limits

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.

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: Dr. Brice's name tag is partially tucked under her collar when she's inside the lab. When she walks into the corridor, the tag has shifted position and is outside the collar. Later, back in the lab, the tag keeps changing from over to under her collar repeatedly.

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 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."
