Dust - S2-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Sykes opens the Sheriff's office door to leave, the "sky" outside has a very large equipment shadow on it, hanging over the building across the street. (00:05:10)

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. (00:20:25)

The Rip Van Winkle Caper - S2-E24

Factual error: When they looked at Mr. Herbie's case, they only saw the skeleton. Problem is the clothing was missing, where there should have been some remnants. And the vehicle started with no trouble. After a hundred years, the battery should have been dead, and the engine inoperable.

Movie Nut

A Hundred Yards over the Rim - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: When Joe (the diner owner) hands Christian Horn the glass of water, Horn grabs it by the base of the glass and drinks from it holding it the same way, almost to the last drop. The camera quickly switches the angle to show Horn finishing it close up, but this time he's holding it with his fingers wrapped around the glass. The camera switches the angle again as he's handing it back to Joe, once again holding it by the base.


Night of the Meek - S2-E11

Audio problem: Throughout Corwin's scene with the two children on the street, and through Rod Serling's subsequent introduction to the episode, you can hear the loud hiss of fan blowers used to waft artificial snow onto the set. (00:04:50)

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. (00:12:30)

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. (00:19:00)

The Obsolete Man - S2-E29

[A bomb in Wadsworth's room is seconds from going off, causing the Chancellor to panic].
Chancellor: Please, please let me out. In the name of God, let me out. Let me out! Let me out!
Wadsworth: Yes, Chancellor. In the name of God, I will let you out.
