The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, the cards and notebook on Number 6's kitchen counter change positions between shots. There's also a circle card on the counter that disappears when he draws the star card from the deck.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Alison is thanking Number 6 for letting her practice on him. In close-ups, her hands are at her sides. But in longer shots, she has her hands folded under her chin.

Revealing mistake: In the aerial shot from the helicopter as it overflies the Village, another "real world" car can be spotted parked next to the Green Dome.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Factual error: Alison's Polaroid pictures develop themselves instantly. (In reality, you had to wait just over a minute before separating the developer sheet and finished photograph.) She also leaves the same flash bulb in when she takes a second picture - and it flashes again.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: Watch Curtis' shadow when he and Number 6 have their pistol range competition. The split-screen process cuts his shadow in half.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: While they ride toward the helicopter, Number 6 and Number 2 have a conversation. Shots of Number 6 are obviously outdoors under windy conditions: his hair is blowing. But every shot of Number 2 has been taken in-studio with a rear-screen projection. His hair isn't moving at all.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Watch the helicopter when it first lifts off. It has regular "sled-style" landing struts. But in the air, it suddenly has water pontoons. When it lands again, though, the regular struts return.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Village doctors and technicians begin their procedure on the unconscious Number 6, one man folds the sheet and blanket back from his chest. A few shots later, the same man does this again.

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: While the technicians are prepping the unconscious Number 6, there's no watch on the lamp table by the bed. One appears there, though, when the tech begins collecting the prisoner's personal items.
