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

The Apple A Day Affair - S3-E27

Revealing mistake: Gardner and Illya are chained to a mine shaft post and the Thrush bad guys trigger a cave-in to seal them in. As the debris falls, you can see the entire "stone" wall behind them rock and wobble flimsily from side to side. (00:23:50)

The Concrete Overcoat Affair (2) - S3-E12

Revealing mistake: Solo's boat is blown up by Strago's new superweapon. But stock footage used for the explosion is a little too obvious: the picture abruptly changes from color to black-and-white. (00:14:30)

Jean G

The Her Master's Voice Affair - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: During the fight with the phony delivery men, Illya's stunt double is easily identifiable by the fact that his wig is a completely different shade of blond that doesn't match Illya's hair at all. (00:20:30)

The Matterhorn Affair - S3-E24

Revealing mistake: During the fight in the cemetery, Illya's stunt double's face is fully visible several times. (00:42:50)

The Yo-Ho-Ho and a Bottle of Rum Affair - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: The ship is supposedly pitching heavily in stormy seas. But because the tilting effect is merely the camera moving, the whiskey bottle, glass and other items on Captain Morton's desk don't slide or fall off. In fact, they don't move at all. (00:23:15)

The Sort of Do-It-Yourself Dreadful Affair - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: Thrush's android army is composed of dozens of identical robot women. The first 6 we see (from behind) do have identical heights, shapes, clothes and wigs. But we then see shots of girls with varying shapes and hair lengths, capped by a far-too-close angle on their obvious (and very bad) rubber masks. (00:42:00 - 00:44:50)

The My Friend, the Gorilla Affair - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: The snake encountered by the prisoners is initially black with white markings (a stock shot). But when Illya kicks it aside, it has somehow turned solid gray. It's also very obviously made of rubber. (00:07:25)
