Mirror Image - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When he introduces himself to Millicent inside the train station, Paul is wearing a dripping wet raincoat. It stays wet in the close-ups, but in the next several inter-cut two-shots, it's completely dry.

Elegy - S1-E20

Factual error: The astronauts land on an asteroid said to orbit a binary star 655 million miles from Earth. This is impossible, as that distance would place them well within our solar system. In fact, they'd be inside the orbit of Saturn, where of course there aren't (nor could there be) any extraneous suns. The nearest star to our system is, in fact, trillions (not millions) of miles away.

The Fever - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: In the final scene, the position of the silver dollar lying next to Franklin's hand changes several times between shots.

Elegy - S1-E20

Perchance to Dream - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: When Hall races toward the window to jump, the stunt man is just a little too apparent as he leaps, primarily due to a very bad wig.

The Lonely - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Allenby brings Corey a stack of paperback books. He's holding them with the back covers facing out until the shot cuts, and then the stack of books has reversed itself in his hand: the back covers are now facing inward.

A Short Drink from a Certain Fountain - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Raymond arrives to check on Harmon, Flora is sitting at the breakfast bar opening the morning paper. She's holding it straight up in front of her, but when the shot reverses angles, the paper is suddenly lying flat on the bar.

Third From the Sun - S1-E14

Factual error: The scientists, having carefully charted their course to Earth, state that it is an 11 million mile trip from their planet. Not likely. Mars is our nearest planetary neighbor, and it's over 34 million miles away at its closest orbital approach. There are no planets any nearer to Earth than Mars. This is one of the very few cases where Rod Serling simply failed to do his astronomy homework.

The Hitch-Hiker - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Nan first swerves to avoid the hitch-hiker, her 1959 Mercury briefly turns into a 1957 Ford. It also changes from a light to a dark color.

Valley of the Shadow - S4-E3

Revealing mistake: We see Redfield's car strike the invisible barrier from a side angle. It jerks to a stop and the hood flies up, but there's no other front end damage - until the angle shifts to a forward view, a shot of an identical car that had been previously wrecked. Now there's suddenly considerable damage to the front end, and the hood is in a different, much more crumpled position.

Showdown with Rance McGrew - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: Rance McGrew's white horse is tied up with its head just a few inches from the hitching rail, but a moment later is untied and several feet away from the rail. Next shot, it's tied up close again, though no one's touched it. Finally, it's completely loose, and at the episode's end, is wandering into the street.

Third From the Sun - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: No one drinks much lemonade, so there's neither time nor need for Eve to refill the pitcher during the brief cut to a scene on the porch. Yet after she has emptied its contents into the glasses on the tray, the lemonade pitcher refills itself.

The Big Tall Wish - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Henry closes the door of the rabbit hutch, but it bounces back open. When he turns back to the hutch a minute later, though, the door has closed itself.
