The Twilight Zone

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.

Elegy - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: Throughout the episode, the "frozen" people can be seen breathing and moving slightly. This is particularly apparent in the beauty contest tableau.

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.

The Fever - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: When Franklin leaves the check cashing window and walks to the right, a man with a pompadour haircut walks off screen left. In the next shot, with no time lapse, Franklin returns to his slot machine, and the same extra passes behind him from the right, once again exiting left. No way he could have moved that fast in the time allotted.

Black Leather Jackets - S5-E18

Revealing mistake: The aliens cause a power fluctuation, and Mr. Tillman complains that all the lights in his house are flickering on and off. But the lamps in his living room are burning steadily. The "flickering" light is originating from what is obviously stage lighting above the set.

A Passage for Trumpet - S1-E32

Death Ship - S4-E6

Revealing mistake: When Mason puts the ID card back into the pocket of his dead duplicate, the "corpse" twitches its eyelids.

The Grave - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: As Connie approaches the graveyard the sky in the background is obviously a painted backdrop, as there is a visible seam.

Jason Hoffman

A Most Unusual Camera - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: The crooks in this episode appear to have obtained the same pile of funny money that the Castles received in "Man in the Bottle." The bills don't even vaguely resemble any real U.S. currency.

Time Enough at Last - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: Right after Bemis's glasses break, he leans down to pick them up. Instead, he first opens the book. When he does that, you can see that the pages are completely blank and that there is absolutely nothing printed on them.

Deaths-Head Revisited - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: In the window there are already broken areas where the glass gets broken when Captain hits it. On the bottom pane the grill on the top, bottom and right have a crack before the Captain even hits it.

A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Finchley smashes the TV, the screen image stays visible for a short time after the screen is broken, revealing that the screen's image was superimposed.

Judgment Night - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Lanser goes below deck frantically trying to find people and tell them to leave the ship, when he opens the door at end of the corridor, it's a bit too obvious that the hallway behind that door is nothing more then just a painting.

Mr. Bevis - S1-E33

Revealing mistake: When all of the neighborhood children push Bevis's car for him, one of them looks directly into the camera.

A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When the electric razor is coming down the stairs after Finchley, the wire used to pull it is visible.

To Serve Man - S3-E24

Revealing mistake: Stock footage used here is far too obviously borrowed from several old movies. While the episode is set in the 60s, people's clothing and all the cars are noticeably many years out of date.

Still Valley - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: Many of the "frozen" Union soldiers can be seen blinking, breathing and wavering in place amidst their regiment.

The Man in the Bottle - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: Mr. & Mrs. Castle wish for a million dollars in 5 and 10 dollar bills. But the bills they receive all have the same pattern printed on both sides, a pattern which which doesn't resemble any real US currency. There's also not nearly enough of the bills to total a million dollars.

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Dingle lifts the bar bully over his head and twirls him around. But the dummy used to achieve this effect has a distinctly lifeless, plastic face, and more than once, the wires suspending it are visible.

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.

Trivia

Producer William Froug rejected an extremely nervous young singer/actress auditioning for the part of Mary Rachel, and recalls thinking that "I'll probably kick myself. She'll probably be a big star." He turned out to be right on both counts. The aspiring young singer's name was Liza Minnelli.
