Audio problem: When Maj. Wilson tells Lt. Decker that the year is 1959 instead of 1917, Decker mouths the words "fifty nine." However, no sound is heard.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It's stretching to call this an error - people often mouth words to themselves without vocalizing. The fact that this reviewer can tell what Decker is saying, simply by reading his lips, attests to the fact that the silence was intentional.

The Purple Testament - S1-E19

Factual error: Captain Riker and Lt. Fitzgerald are wearing their insignia, which is incorrect. Officers serving in front line units did not wear their insignia because it identified them as high priority targets for Japanese snipers.

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: A close-up shot of the man Dingle is lifting over his head shows part of the lifter's face - revealing that an actor other than Burgess Meredith is used here.

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Audio problem: The sound of the table breaking begins before Mr. Dingle hits it.

The Brain Center at Whipple's - S5-E33

Continuity mistake: At the moment Chief Engineer Hanley turns off the projector, the lamps in the background come on at precisely the same moment. Mr. Whipple is standing in the middle of the room. No one else was in the room to turn the lights on.

King Nine Will Not Return - S2-E1

Factual error: The shape of the B-25's top gun turret is completely different from the turrets actually used on these bombers.

Visible crew/equipment: When Finchley is being chased by his "driverless" car, you can see the driver crouching down at the wheel.

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.

mirtom

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.

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.

mirtom

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.
