The Twilight Zone

To Serve Man - S3-E24

Other mistake: Chambers asks what time it is on Earth, a strangely vague question to which the Kanamits grant an equally odd answer: on Earth, it is noon. It can't be noon everywhere on Earth at once. While it can be fancifully explained away ("They somehow knew to answer for the time zone he was taken from"), it still jars the viewer, because neither Chambers nor the aliens, both highly intelligent, should make this sort of imprecise mistake. Both director Richard Bare and Damon Knight, author of the original short story, confirmed this as a scriptwriting error that should have been caught before shooting began. (00:02:15)

Jean G

The Eye of the Beholder - S2-E6

Other mistake: For someone whose entire head has been bandaged for several weeks, Janet Tyler's curly hair is remarkably unflattened when the bandages are finally removed, and her thick mascara isn't smeared in the least. (00:00:15)

mirtom

You Drive - S5-E14

Other mistake: When Lillian calls Oliver, she tells him that the car stalled at 3rd and Park - the original scene of the accident. Later, when Oliver goes into his garage in the middle of the night, the car turns on its radio and goes to a news broadcast about the hit-and-run that took place at 3rd and Elm.

The Arrival - S3-E2

Other mistake: As part of the story line, three men see different tail numbers on the plane. However, the first and third sets of numbers are printed on a big sticker, because the numbers are a different style than the second set. Also, they used two different planes. The second tail number is N67588, which should be on the bottom of the wing, but that number is N107932.

Movie Nut

Where is Everybody? - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Ferris first arrives in the town the the church bell chimes seven times indicating it's 7 o'clock. Later the bells chime again but this time only four times indicating 4 o'clock. Surely he didn't walk around the empty town for 9 hours.

Where is Everybody? - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Mike first walks into the town he sees the ringing church bell then looks to his right. The camera acting as his POV pans from left to right but since he was already looking to his right then the camera would be facing the direction he just came from.

The Mind and the Matter - S2-E27

Other mistake: In the office, Beechcroft's mirror image's hair is styled like his own, rather than reversed, as a reflection should be. In his bathroom, the hair in the mirror reflection is correct.

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.

Nightmare as a Child - S1-E29

Other mistake: Helen is holding the cup of rich "cocoa" that Markie supposedly just drank. Helen says, "I thought she'd finished her cocoa, and here it is untouched." Close-up on the "cocoa," which is clearly (so to speak) nothing more than water. (00:12:10)

Libellule

The Odyssey of Flight 33 - S2-E18

Other mistake: One of the crew members looks at the air speed indicator and states they are going over 2100 miles per hour. Why would a subsonic plane have an indicator that reads to 2100 mph?
