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)

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. (00:32:50 - 00:36:50)

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)

Andro: Better to die than to sit and watch the world die.

Dr. Paul Wayne: So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

The Control Voice: It is said that if you move a single pebble on the beach, you set up a different pattern, and everything in the world is changed. It can also be said that love can change the future, if it is deep enough, true enough, and selfless enough. It can prevent a war, prohibit a plague, keep the whole world... whole.
