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

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)

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)

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

Revealing mistake: MGM often recycled props from its earlier films. Here, the head of Robby the Robot from "Forbidden Planet" is used as part of the rejuvenation machine. (00:33:30)

The Dippy Blonde Affair - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: In the opening sequence, stock footage re-used from the first season has the peculiar result of turning a brief part of the otherwise all-color episode black-and-white. (00:00:20)

Jean G

The Ultimate Computer Affair - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: In the underground corridor, Illya knocks out a Thrush guard and then sits down to wait for Solo to turn off the electric beam blocking the way inside. Behind him, the "unconscious" guard moves his foot. (00:29:05)

The Moonglow Affair - S2-E23

Revealing mistake: Miss Moonglow's lipstick supposedly glows in the dark. But when the lights go out, a badly superimposed special effect causes the glowing lips to remain completely stationary, even when she doesn't. Her head moves, but weirdly, the lips don't. (00:36:20)

The Adriatic Express Affair - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When his body is lying in the baggage car, the "dead" chauffeur's eyelids twitch. (00:23:40)

Jean G

The King of Diamonds Affair - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: When Solo and Illya, posing as maintenance workers on the London street, are opening the manhole to go underground, two cars - a blue VW hatchback and a white roadster - pass them twice going in opposite directions each time. And while most of the cars are driving appropriately on the left, one pulls up behind them driving on the right (which is to say, wrong) side of the road. (00:13:00)
