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

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)

Jean G

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)

Jean G

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. (00:48:35)

Jean G

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)

Jean G

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. (00:37:45)

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 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 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)

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. (00:24:00)

Jean G

The Dippy Blonde Affair - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Pendleton swallows a suicide capsule and collapses at the interrogation table face down between two file folders. But when the shot cuts to a different angle, his head has instantly moved several inches to the right and is resting in the middle of one of the folders instead of in between them. (00:17:00)

Jean G

The Tigers are Coming Affair - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The gag covering Suzanne's mouth changes position (the patterns on the cloth have shifted) when she gets up to kick the bad guys off the dock into the water. (00:44:40)

Jean G

The Children's Day Affair - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: The glass in the windshield of Solo and Illya's car is there, then not there, then there again and so on, depending on whether the shot is actually outdoors or processed in studio. (00:00:30)

Jean G

The Birds and the Bees Affair - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: A swarm of bees blackens the windshield of Solo & Illya's car. We see them in all the interior shots, but every time it cuts to an exterior view, the windshield is perfectly clear. (00:04:15)

Jean G

The Ultimate Computer Affair - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Cervantes shoots Rodriguez, a shell casing from his gun lands on the metal storage container beside him. But in the next shot of him, it's disappeared. (00:31:25)

Jean G

The Virtue Affair - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Illya and Vogler practice shooting arrows at the "No Hunting" sign, the "I" is completely there one moment, then acquires a huge white chip in its base without being hit by an arrow. A few shots later, it's intact again. (00:19:00)

Jean G

The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: Illya removes his shoes, leaves them on the ground and climbs the guard tower barefooted. But in the following shots, his shoes have reappeared on his feet. (00:42:50)

Jean G

The Adriatic Express Affair - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Solo & Illya are locked in a cell in the windowless baggage car. But all of the exterior shots of the train show it hauling only window-lined passenger cars, and no baggage car at all. (00:44:30)

Jean G

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

Continuity mistake: Parviz starts the blade swinging while he's standing directly behind it. In the very next shot, he instantly "jumps" to a position on one side instead. Probably a wise move. We're just not sure how he did it so fast. (00:44:10)

The Yukon Affair - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Victoria orders everyone to put up their hands, Illya's left coat sleeve is covering his watch in full shots, but is several inches lower, exposing the watch, in all the close-ups. (00:45:15)
