Long Live Walter Jameson - S1-E24

Factual error: When Walter is reading the diary of the Civil War soldier at the beginning of the program, he reads an entry from "Tuesday, September 11, 1864." Tuesday, September 11, 1864 was a Sunday.

Nightmare as a Child - S1-E29

Audio problem: When Markie is finally revealing to Helen who she is, Terry Burnham (Markie) is standing behind Janice Rule (Helen) talking to her over her shoulder and can be seen mouthing Janice's lines along with her in between her own.

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When the Ground Crewman runs after Lt. Decker, he reaches him just as Decker is climbing onto the plane. You see the Ground Crewman put his hand (or just about to) on Decker's upper left arm. When they cut to a closer shot, the Ground Crewman's hand is in the process of moving up to Decker's arm.

A Passage for Trumpet - S1-E32

Audio problem: When Joey steps in front of the truck, a lady screams and it shows a close-up of her face. It pans out to a wider shot and for a moment, you can still hear the scream, but the woman's mouth is closed.

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Decker first gets out of his plane, Maj Wilson begins to question him. Decker's hair is neatly combed. When Wilson asks him "Are you French?" the shot changes to a closeup of Decker only. His hair is now disheveled in the front and hanging down on his forehead. The next shot returns to the wider angle and Decker's hair is more neatly combed again, as it originally was, not hanging on his forehead.

A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Finchley smashes the TV, the screen image stays visible for a short time after the screen is broken, revealing that the screen's image was superimposed.

Elegy - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: As Peter goes to the fishers, the pair shown on the bridge behind him are obviously photographs.

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Before Dingle tries to lift the building, a crack can already be seen in the ceiling beam.

mirtom

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Factual error: Decker is flying a Nieuport 28, which entered service in early 1918. However, the date is supposed to be March 5, 1917. Furthermore, the Nieuport was a French-built aircraft that was flown by the French and Americans but not the Royal Flying Corps.

mirtom

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Factual error: Decker speaks of Georges Guynemer's disappearance. Decker believes the date is March 5, 1917, but Guynemer disappeared on Sept. 11, 1917.

Mr. Bevis - S1-E33

Continuity mistake: The little boy is right in the doorway when Mr. Bevis falls down the stairs, but when the camera pans out to a wider shot, the little boy isn't in the doorway.

The Monsters are Due on Maple Street - S1-E22

Plot hole: The street sign in the beginning is all wrong: it faces the camera rather than the street where the story takes place. In a typical American city, street signs are almost always placed in the direction of the street they are indicating, so drivers on the other street in the intersection know what they are turning onto or passing. In other words, the story is not set on Maple Street! Maple Street is the intersecting street at the end of the road the story is set on.

Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: The main character's reflection in a mirror has come to life and much of the episode is a confrontation between the character and his reflection. Although they made an effort to reverse the image (the reflection wears his watch on the opposite hand and he bites his fingernails with the opposite hand) they forgot to reverse the buttons on his shirt.

Nightmare as a Child - S1-E29

Revealing mistake: When "Selden" falls down the stairs it is obvious that it's a stunt double.

mirtom

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: The jeep driver is standing behind Lt. Decker's aircraft during the initial conversation between Decker and Maj Wilson. His hands are behind the fuselage in the initial shot. When the shot changes to a close up of Decker, the driver's hands are now on top of the fuselage.

mirtom

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Decker first exits the aircraft, there is a jeep immediately behind it, a service truck behind the jeep, and a USAF F-100 Super Sabre jet in the background. However, when Maj Wilson escorts him away from the plane, the service truck is gone and the F-100 has been replaced with a large transport aircraft.

The Wedding (2) - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Frank puts down the bottle of liquor, he puts it on the middle of the table. When Raymond picks it up, it is at the edge of the table.

mirtom

Father Knows Best - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Prior to bringing Ray up for the role-playing exercise, the parenting teacher erases a circled phrase from the chalkboard. Throughout the scene, the chalked circle flips several several times between being totally erased and having a faint outline left over.

mirtom

How They Met - S3-E26

Trivia: Frank doesn't appear in this episode, as Peter Boyle had a heart attack on set during preparations for filming and he had to be written out of the episode.

mirtom

I Love You - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: During the bathroom scene in this episode, two wall tiles immediately below the shower head keep appearing and disappearing between shots.
