The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The Four-Steps Affair - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: Solo is driving on a country road through a wooded area with no street lights. So what are all those bright round lights reflecting on the hood and windshield of his car? UFOs? (00:10:10)

Jean G

The King of Knaves Affair - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: Illya's stunt double during the balcony fight is painfully obvious: his face and bad wig are visible throughout the scene. (00:18:15)

Jean G

The Quadripartite Affair - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: The Thrush guard Solo & Illya toss over the bridge railing during their escape from the compound is a little too obviously a dummy. (00:44:05)

Jean G

The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: Every time the villains' deadly gas, "hydro," is mentioned, the word is badly and very obviously dubbed in, and doesn't match what the actors' lips are saying. This occurred because the original name used, "freon," turned out to be an existing (and patented) refrigerant gas, so the name had to be changed to avoid a trademark lawsuit. (00:28:45)

Jean G

The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: Here, in the opening scenes at U.N.C.L.E. headquarters, as well as in a number of other first season episodes, the unmarried Illya is inexplicably wearing a wedding ring. (00:02:35)

Jean G

The Giuoco Piano Affair - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When they're fleeing down the side of the mountain, Illya and Marion gain a sudden 25 lbs. each, thanks to the use of two very conspicuous stunt doubles. (00:39:40)

Jean G

The Quadripartite Affair - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: At the very end, in Waverly's office, the boom shadow is prominently visible on the door. (00:46:20)

Jean G

The Brain-Killer Affair - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: Solo pushes the chief from Calcutta's wheelchair into an elevator in UNCLE headquarters. The floor going into the lift, however, is visibly solid, with no break to allow for a real elevator's movement. (00:14:55)

Jean G

The Never-Never Affair - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: U.N.C.L.E. headquarters must be full of elevators that don't go anywhere. When Mandy enters Solo's elevator car, she crosses a solid threshold with no break in the floor. (00:10:35)

Jean G

The See-Paris-and-Die Affair - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: The stock footage establishing shot of Paris shows a gray, cloudy, overcast day. But in the next shot, on the streets, it's bright and sunny. (00:01:00)

Jean G

The Never-Never Affair - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: Solo's stunt double's face can be seen several times during the fight scene in the Thrush garage. (00:36:35)

Jean G

The Terbuf Affair - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When Napoleon Solo arrives at the train station, both the name of the newspaper the man in black is holding, and the name on the station sign are backwards. Additionally, as he arrives by train the man in black is on the left side of the shot. After exiting the train, the man in black appears from the right side of the shot. (00:12:35)

Skip Lawson

The Mad, Mad, Tea Party Affair - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: When Riley is trying to escape after being exposed as the saboteur, he shoots a pair of U.N.C.L.E. agents. On the right side of the screen, spent shell casings are very obviously thrown into the shot from off screen. (00:43:40)
