Another Mother - September 30, 1981 - S2-E13

Plot hole: Sam wallops both kidnappers and rescues the son. They then leave the two child molesters unconscious beside their van. No one calls the police or has them arrested, so they're free to kidnap another kid. Sam doesn't leap until after an epilogue in which the loose ends are supposed to be resolved - but this question is left unanswered. It's not excused by a "just because we didn't see it happen doesn't mean it didn't" defense. The viewers shouldn't be left with a dangling plot hole, and one line could have cured this one.

Revealing mistake: When Sam and Al are in the station wagon pursuing the van, both Sam and Al's reflections are visible on the wagon's front hood. Al, as a hologram, shouldn't have one and Sam's reflection should be as Kevin's mom.

Continuity mistake: When Sam uses martial arts against the men from the van, one of them pulls a knife as he kneels on his right knee in the close-up, but next shot he is kneeling on his left knee.

Continuity mistake: When one of the sicko men from the van pulls a knife on Sam, the white blouse is either tucked into the skirt or hangs over it, depending on the shot.
