The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: Stock footage strikes again. Delgado's plane changes from a blue and white 1960s aircraft to a 1950s-style silver prop job when it lands.

00:32:30 - 00:37:35

The Foreign Legion Affair - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Solo begins trying to seduce the dancing girl with the line, "We shall taste paradise," he's standing at least a foot away from her. But in the very next shot, they're suddenly in a clinch: her hands are on his cheeks and they're about to kiss.

00:29:15

The Deadly Goddess Affair - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: At the end, Solo and Illya are sitting at a small bistro table as the captured bad guys are marched past them. Solo wears a green fez, and between shots, Illya suddenly acquires a red one. It wasn't in his hands or on the table before that: it just seems to appear on his head out of nowhere.

The Deadly Goddess Affair - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When Hubris and his henchmen confront Narouz, three of the men change positions instantly when the shot cuts to a closer angle. A few shots later, Malik instantly "jumps" from behind Hubris to a spot right beside him.

00:20:05

The Re-Collector's Affair - S2-E6

Factual error: Posing as an art collector, Solo tells the Re-collectors that he owned a valuable painting looted 20 years ago by the Nazis during the war. Improbable at best, and oddly, they don't seem at all curious as to how the 30-something Solo might have afforded such a treasure when he'd have been 12-15 years old at the time.

The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: At the end, Mr. Waverly puts his newspaper down on the table and prepares to get up. When the shot cuts to a longer view, he puts the paper down again before rising.

00:48:05

Jean G

The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: Delgado's plane makes a bumpy landing (without a runway) and skids to a stop in the Brazilian jungle, surrounded by palm trees. But when everyone gets off, the plane is suddenly parked in the midst of an industrial compound with buildings all around it, and no palm trees in sight.

The Alexander the Greater Affair (1) - S2-E1

Character mistake: When Alexander organizes the human chess game in his courtyard, the "pieces" stand the wrong way on the board, with a dark square in the lower right hand corner. That corner is always a light square.

The Deadly Toys Affair - S2-E9

Plot hole: Solo hopes that Elfie can fly the helicopter they're about to escape in. Why? It's a standard-issue helicopter: nothing special. Did both he and Illya, who've flown many 'copters in previous episodes, suddenly forget how?

The Deadly Toys Affair - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The remote-controlled model plane with the explosive on board keeps changing colors between shots. It's yellow and blue at first, then yellow and red, and in one shot, it's red and white.

00:12:30

Jean G

The Tigers are Coming Affair - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: The underwater bomb, according to the bad guys' dialogue, is supposed to be triggered by a boat hitting a tripwire strung between two buoys. But it explodes when the boat is still several feet away from the buoys.

00:44:30

Jean G

The Round Table Affair - S2-E27

Factual error: Artie refers to Illya as "an American citizen abroad," and Illya agrees, apparently forgetting that he isn't. (He's a Russian citizen.).

00:03:00

Jean G

The Waverly Ring Affair - S2-E19

Visible crew/equipment: When Solo enters the scanning room, the shadow of the boom assembly sweeps down the wall on the right side of the door.

00:07:40

Jean G

The Adriatic Express Affair - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: In all the interior shots, the overnight express train is fully booked and crowded with people. But in the exterior shots, we're shown a train with all the lights on inside - and not a single person aboard.

00:44:35

Jean G

The Bridge of Lions Affair (2) - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Illya's car collides with Madame de Sala's. But it's very obvious that the cars don't actually strike each other, and later shots of her vehicle show no damage at all where it was supposedly hit.

00:26:00

Jean G

The Arabian Affair - S2-E7

Factual error: Thrush lands a rather large private jet right next to its secret lab. In the Arabian desert. In the sand. Without a runway.

00:39:20

Jean G

The Birds and the Bees Affair - S2-E18

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of someone who's not in the shot intrudes on the right side of the screen as Solo exits the communications room and enters the corridor.

00:02:15

Jean G

The Very Important Zombie Affair - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: Captain Ramirez's car has a flat on a dirt road in the middle of the jungle. But on his car door, there's a clear reflection of a big square studio reflector and four klieg lights.

00:23:00

Jean G

The Virtue Affair - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Solo's white gloves are on, off, and on again between takes as he and Albert run from the courtyard, search for the control room, and then finally go back for Illya.

00:44:15

Jean G

The Alexander the Greater Affair (1) - S2-E1

Plot hole: Bad guys tie lousy knots. Solo's bonds at the end are so loose that he easily slips his feet free to stop the swinging blade. And the rope across his chest does nothing to pinion his elbows or lower arms. He could have reached up with his hands to catch the blade at any time.

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.
