The Twilight Zone

Nightmare as a Child - S1-E29

Audio problem: When Markie is finally revealing to Helen who she is, Terry Burnham (Markie) is standing behind Janice Rule (Helen) talking to her over her shoulder and can be seen mouthing Janice's lines along with her in between her own.

A Passage for Trumpet - S1-E32

Audio problem: When Joey steps in front of the truck, a lady screams and it shows a close-up of her face. It pans out to a wider shot and for a moment, you can still hear the scream, but the woman's mouth is closed.

Night of the Meek - S2-E11

Audio problem: Throughout Corwin's scene with the two children on the street, and through Rod Serling's subsequent introduction to the episode, you can hear the loud hiss of fan blowers used to waft artificial snow onto the set. (00:04:50)

Little Girl Lost - S3-E26

Audio problem: For reasons unknown, the child's voice throughout this episode is played by an adult actress trying to sound childlike - and the unconvincing imitation is painfully obvious. (00:19:25)

Suggested correction: It's stretching to call this an error - people often mouth words to themselves without vocalizing. The fact that this reviewer can tell what Decker is saying, simply by reading his lips, attests to the fact that The Silence was intentional.

A Kind of a Stopwatch - S5-E4

Other mistake: When McNulty uses the stopwatch to rob a bank, he goes through a small wooden door and past the employees. With time frozen, the small door should have stayed open but immediately swings shut.

A Game of Pool - S3-E5

Trivia: Johnson's script originally featured an ending in which Jesse loses the game and yet finds himself still alive. Seeing this, Fats explains that he will die "as all second raters die: you'll be buried and forgotten without me touching you. If you'd beaten me, you'd have lived forever." This ending was eventually filmed when this episode was remade in 1989, during the first revival of The Twilight Zone.
