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

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. (00:08:45)

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)

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 Deadly Goddess Affair - S2-E17

Factual error: Solo's communicator starts transmitting all by itself. He's bound and tied when Illya calls, but somehow the "ring tone" stops and the frequency opens, allowing Illya to hear what the bad guys are saying, all while the unanswered and untouched device is still in Solo's pocket.

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

Factual error: Dr. Gritsky over-rejuvenates himself at the end and turns into a young boy - who for some inexplicable reason still has the adult doctor's mustache. (00:47:00)

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

Factual error: While Solo prepares the explosive, Waverly's line to Joanna is, "If you and I are wise like Lot's wife, we'd better not look." The scriptwriter got this backwards. Lot's wife was unwise and did look, and turned into a pillar of salt. (00:41:00)
