The Twilight Zone

The Mind of Simon Foster - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: When the pawnbroker closes his metal gate, he's facing the wire mesh. When the shot cuts, he's instantly facing away from it.

The Beacon - S1-E26

Plot hole: Barrows introduces himself as "Dr. Dennis Barrows," and Teddy asks, "What's a doctor?" As the isolated villagers have never heard of doctors, Teddy would have no way to know that "Doctor" was a title/profession and not simply part of Barrows' name. He should have asked, "What kind of a name is Doctor?"

Ye Gods - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: At the cocktail party, Ettinger and Bacchus are sitting with their shoulders touching in close-ups, but they're more than a foot apart in all the full shots.

A Day in Beaumont - S1-E58

Trivia: From the title (honoring writer Charles Beaumont) on, David Gerrold loaded this script with homages to sf writers and films. Every character and nearly every line makes such a reference, with people and things named after Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson and characters from Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Them!, Forbidden Planet, This Island Earth and many others.

A Matter of Minutes - S1-E38

Trivia: It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it in-joke: When the Wrights get trapped in time, they briefly take refuge in a movie theater sporting one-sheet posters for the film Time Bandits..

Button, Button - S1-E50

Trivia: "Button Button" was based on a short horror story of the same title by prolific and legendary sci-fi author Richard Matheson. Matheson's original story was first published in a 1970 issue of Playboy Magazine. Having written some of the most famous teleplays for the original Twilight Zone TV series in the 1960s, Matheson was asked to adapt his own story "Button Button" for the new 1985 Twilight Zone series. After he submitted the teleplay, it was significantly rewritten. Matheson was so angered by the rewrite that he refused to allow his real name in the episode credits and instead used his pseudonym, "Logan Swanson."
