The Lonely - S1-E7

New this month Plot hole: In the beginning, we see the rocket that came to bring the main character supplies carried 3 men and the crate containing the robot woman, meaning it can hold at least 4 people and perhaps more. However, at the end of the episode, the main character is told that the rocket only has enough room for him and the pilot, so he must leave his robot wife behind. Why wouldn't they return in the same rocket from before, and if this is a smaller rocket, why would they have chosen to bring this one when the main character possibly could have had a lot of stuff he wanted to bring home. We see he could have car parts shipped to him and was able to build a car, so these rockets must be able to carry a significant amount of weight. It's almost as if the pilot wanted him to have an ultimatum.

New this month Suggested correction: It is stated by the captain that they have to pick other convicts which means there will be more then four people present. Plus, there are captain and two crew members in the first place.

Mirror Image - S1-E21

Elegy - S1-E20

Factual error: The astronauts land on an asteroid said to orbit a binary star 655 million miles from Earth. This is impossible, as that distance would place them well within our solar system. In fact, they'd be inside the orbit of Saturn, where of course there aren't (nor could there be) any extraneous suns. The nearest star to our system is, in fact, trillions (not millions) of miles away.

Third From the Sun - S1-E14

Factual error: The scientists, having carefully charted their course to Earth, state that it is an 11 million mile trip from their planet. Not likely. Mars is our nearest planetary neighbor, and it's over 34 million miles away at its closest orbital approach. There are no planets any nearer to Earth than Mars. This is one of the very few cases where Rod Serling simply failed to do his astronomy homework.

One shot later, though, it's back in its original position underneath him.

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.

Suggested correction: In the first bar scene and several other scenes, we see that Pedott (which is the accurate spelling of his name) is purposely giving his trinkets away, explicitly saying that there's "no charge tonight". It's easily understood that he's not charging for the goods he provides as they're "what they need".

Perchance to Dream - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Hall leaps through the plate glass window. In the interior shot, he breaks the glass and is 3/4 of the way through the opening (up to his knees) - until we cut to a view from outside the window. Then he's just crashing through at shoulder level.

The Monsters are Due on Maple Street - S1-E22

Plot hole: The street sign in the beginning is all wrong: it faces the camera rather than the street where the story takes place. In a typical American city, street signs are almost always placed in the direction of the street they are indicating, so drivers on the other street in the intersection know what they are turning onto or passing. In other words, the story is not set on Maple Street! Maple Street is the intersecting street at the end of the road the story is set on.

The Lonely - S1-E7

Factual error: Corey is in solitary confinement on an asteroid. However, asteroids are neither large enough nor stable enough to hold an atmosphere. In addition, the distance from earth stated in the episode wouldn't be much further than the moon; there are no asteroids in a stable, regular orbit around the the moon or the earth, nor around the sun anywhere that close to earth.

Plot hole: If Walter was indeed immortal from his deal with the devil then there was no reason for him to use the escape clause when he was sent to jail.
