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 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.

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.

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 While the episode is set in the 60s, people's clothing and all the cars are noticeably many years out of date.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.

Dust - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: The sky behind the hanging scene at the end has several prominent wrinkles in it, betraying the fact that it's not a sky, but a cloth backdrop. In some shots, you can also see shadows on the cloth.

The Gift - S3-E32

Revealing mistake: At the end, though Williams is shot multiple times (by several rifles, no less), there's not a drop of blood on him and no holes in his clothes. Also, his "corpse" is visibly breathing. He's clearly meant to be dead, so the fact that he's an alien with healing powers does not explain why he's still breathing - or why the bullets left no holes or blood on his clothes.

Hocus-Pocus and Frisby - S3-E30

Revealing mistake: Make-up for the space aliens was apparently changed after the closing scene in the store was shot and before any footage of the aliens' "true appearance" was actually taken. This resulted in Frisby, who is now telling the truth and finding no one to believe him, saying that the aliens had a single eye in their foreheads, when in fact, the aliens each had two eyes, in the traditional location.

Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: The main character's reflection in a mirror has come to life and much of the episode is a confrontation between the character and his reflection. Although they made an effort to reverse the image (the reflection wears his watch on the opposite hand and he bites his fingernails with the opposite hand) they forgot to reverse the buttons on his shirt.

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.
