The Twilight Zone

I Shot an Arrow into the Air - S1-E15

Corrected entry: When Corey takes his last drink of water before he finds the telephone poles over the hill, you can see plants growing out of the rocks right behind him. Since he is supposed to be on an "asteroid" no plant life should exist, but then again since an asteroid contains no atmosphere, meaning no oxygen, they shouldn't be alive in the first place.

Correction: This is not mistake even by far. Of course they can live and of course there are plants on this asteroid - it is not an asteroid, but a planet we all know very well called Earth. On Earth there are air and plants everywhere.

The Lonely - S1-E7

Corrected entry: If the rocket ship has so little room on board for everyone, including the robot and all the supplies, then why not just come back to get Corey and the robot on the next scheduled pickup? Since the ship wouldn't be full of other people and supplies they both could easily have gone back together the next time.

Correction: Earlier in the episode, it is explained that they have to leave the asteroid at a precise time, otherwise they might end up stuck on it for much longer. Therefore, they probably can't come and go whenever they want.

Mr. Denton on Doomsday - S1-E3

Corrected entry: TV antennas can be spotted in the distance in several shots. They didn't exist at the time of the Wild West.

Correction: There are no TV antennas to be seen in any shot. While there may be metal structures in some background shots, none resemble TV antennas.

Judgment Night - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Lanser's cap says that he is Capitan Leutenant of Kriegsmarine. In German Captain is spelled Kapitan.

Correction: The cap correctly reads Kapitan with K.

The Purple Testament - S1-E19

Corrected entry: This episode holds the absolute record in TZ for having the most actors who also appeared in other episodes. Barney Philips (Gunther) appeared in "Miniature," "A Thing About Machines" and most notably as a Venusian diner counterman in "Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up?" and is one of only two actors who appeared in four episodes (the other being Burgess Meredith). Dick York (Riker) had a memorable role in "Penny For Your Thoughts," while Warren Oates (Jeep Driver) appeared in "The 7th Is Made Up Of Phantoms." Despite being the main star in this episode, William Reynolds (Fitzgerald) never appeared in any other TZ episode.

Correction: 1. Regarding the supposed record, "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up? " has five actors who appeared in other episodes: John Hoyt, Barney Phillips, Bill Erwin, Morgan Jones, Bill Kendis. Even that might not be the record, but I don't have time to go through the whole series right now. 2. Jack Klugman and John Anderson appeared in four episodes each, one of them together ("A Passage for Trumpet"). Vaughn Taylor appeared in five. These are all prominent appearances; Jay Overholts was credited for six smaller roles.

The Purple Testament - S1-E19

Corrected entry: If you look carefully,when Fitzgerald and Riker are talking in hospital hallway right after their comrade has died, you can see it is the same stage, with some differences, which was used for Barbara Jean Trenton's house in the episode "Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine." Note staircase and garden door.

mirtom

Correction: This trivia, not a mistake. Sets and locations are resused all the time in films - the "Hill Valley" set in the Back To The Future films appears in dozens of other films, notably Gremlins.

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.
