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.

00:12:30

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.

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.

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.

00:00:30

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

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.

00:29:20

00:46:15

Jean G

The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Solo and Miss Pogue are trapped in the shipping crate together, his hair combs itself between takes - several times. It's all over his forehead, then is suddenly neatly combed to one side, then is messy again. When the crate is opened, he's well-groomed once more.

00:32:25

Mistakes

Solo blows open the ceiling vent of Illya and Marion's cell, and she stands on Illya's shoulders until Solo can reach her and pull her out. This leaves Illya with nothing/no one to stand on, no way to reach the vent and no apparent way out of the cell. But he's out just the same in the next scene, with no explanation as to how.

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.
