The Trouble with Templeton - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Booth grabs her, Laura's long string of beads breaks. When she starts dancing a moment later, though, they've somehow repaired themselves.

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.

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Factual error: Though this episode is set in then-present-day 1961, the fistful of prop money the bartender is holding is not contemporary. It appears to be copies of 1880s U.S. Currency, though it's been reproduced as smaller, 20th Century sized bills rather than the larger ones that were standard in the 1800s. All in all, not something his bar patrons would likely be paying the bartender with in the 1960s.

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.

The Lateness of the Hour - S2-E8

King Nine Will Not Return - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Embry soaks the front of his shirt with water from the canteen. But when he runs toward the B-52's cockpit and turns around a moment later, his shirt is completely dry again.

A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

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.

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.

Static - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: In the boarding house hallway, Ed yanks the pay phone's receiver off the hook - and the entire wall to which the phone is attached wobbles.

The Man in the Bottle - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When the bottle falls on the shop floor, it changes positions between the time it settles and the moment it begins to smoke.

The Odyssey of Flight 33 - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When the plane first descends, the headphones that the radio controller is wearing keep moving from his neck to head.

Hamster

The Invaders - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The flying saucer the old woman hacks to pieces with an axe is noticeably not the same one that lands in her attic in the beginning. A cruder version was built for the axing scene because the model used was a studio keepsake - the original spaceship from the classic sf film "Forbidden Planet."

The Invaders - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The laser burns on the back of the old woman's left hand disappear when the knife is slicing at her through the door. They return a few shots later, though.

The Eye of the Beholder - S2-E6

Other mistake: For someone whose entire head has been bandaged for several weeks, Janet Tyler's curly hair is remarkably unflattened when the bandages are finally removed, and her thick mascara isn't smeared in the least.

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.

The Odyssey of Flight 33 - S2-E18

A Most Unusual Camera - S2-E10

Plot hole: How did the brother know where his sister and her husband were located after he escaped and jimmied open their door? The couple was staying in a hotel and they acted like they hadn't seen him in quite a while when he appeared on the picture of him walking in the room. They said he couldn't possibly walk through the door because he's been in prison for a year already.
