The Waverly Ring Affair - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: In close-up, Illya is covering the phone receiver with his left hand, but drops the hand to his side when he tells the operator, "Never mind." There's an immediate cut to a wider angle, and his left hand is suddenly back on the receiver in the same position as before.

The Waverly Ring Affair - S2-E19

Plot hole: Waverly installs the explosive ring on Solo's finger and arms it, then says, "No one is to know you've been issued a priority ring." Odd command. It's a huge and conspicuous gold and red ring that he can't take off, and everyone at U.N.C.L.E. knows what it is. So how can Solo possibly keep it a secret?

The Waverly Ring Affair - S2-E19

Plot hole: U.N.C.L.E.'s yellow badges were worn only inside HQ, and were supposed to set off alarms if you didn't wear one, or if they were taken from the building. But here, Solo passes through security and walks out with his badge still on, and the alarms don't sound.

Trivia

"The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s" original working title was "Solo," and its lead character was named for a spy with a minor role in one of Ian Fleming's early Bond novels. U.N.C.L.E. producer Norman Felton had a handshake agreement with Fleming to use the name and to develop "Solo" as a TV spy series. But the Bond film franchise had other ideas, reneged on the agreement on Fleming's behalf, and sued, forcing the title change. Felton prevailed only in retaining the character's name: Napoleon Solo.
