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. (00:12:30)

Suggested correction: The whole point is that a planet used to be 11 million miles away. They blew themselves up, planet and all.

The Lonely - S1-E7

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.

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.

The Hitch-Hiker - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Throughout whole episode, Nan's car doesn't have rear-view mirror. But in the very last scene, when she needs to see Hitch-Hiker in back seat, she uses rear-view mirror.

Suggested correction: Rather than using a rear-view mirror, she pulls down the visor and sees him in a mirror attached to its top side.

The Last Flight - S1-E18

Audio problem: When Maj. Wilson tells Lt. Decker that the year is 1959 instead of 1917, Decker mouths the words "fifty nine." However, no sound is heard.

Suggested correction: It's stretching to call this an error - people often mouth words to themselves without vocalizing. The fact that this reviewer can tell what Decker is saying, simply by reading his lips, attests to the fact that the silence was intentional.
