The Fugitive

The Judgment (1) - S4-E28

Continuity mistake: The date of Helen Kimble's murder is given here as Sept. 19, 1961. Previous episodes, however, had established it as occurring on Sept. 17, 1960.

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: In flashback, we see the one-armed man kill Helen Kimble by striking her with a heavy lamp. All through the earlier seasons, though, we were repeatedly told that Helen had been strangled.

Storm Center - S1-E28

Audio problem: The house Kimble and Marcie are holed up in certainly has remarkable soundproofing. There's a 100 mph hurricane raging outside, yet the moment they close the door, it's completely quiet inside. Throughout the episode, the storm sounds are audible only faintly, and only when the hurricane is relevant to the story line.

Never Wave Goodbye (2) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In Part 1, Kimble worried about Gerard tracing him by a match he left behind. We got a close-up when he tore the match out of the book: it was the 3rd in a row of 5. But here, as he looks at the matchbook and worries again, the close-up shows the only match missing from the book is the 5th one.

Never Stop Running - S1-E26

Continuity mistake: Ralph's brother hits him over the head with a bottle, which shatters. When Kimble runs past the same spot a few shots later, though, the broken glass is gone.

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: Throughout the show's early episodes, Helen Kimble's dress on the night she was murdered was described as blue or blue-gray. Here, in the flashback to the murder, she's wearing an evening gown that isn't blue or gray, but pink.

Wife Killer - S3-E17

Factual error: The Baker City Herald's office door misspells the word "personnel" with a sign reading, "Authorized Personel Only." Pretty poor editing for a newspaper office.

Never Stop Running - S1-E26

Factual error: This is the only episode in which we see Kimble hotwire and steal a car. But he does it in seconds (two whole decades before MacGyver), with nothing but a foil cigarette package liner. Not likely. He'd need a screw driver or pocket knife, at the very least.

Storm Center - S1-E28

Factual error: Harry falls overboard from the boat's port side. Kimble sees this happen, yet in the next shot, he runs to the starboard side to look for some sign of Harry in the water.

Angels Travel on Lonely Roads (2) - S1-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Kimble finishes stacking wood in the barn and is putting his shirt back on, the boom shadow moves across the wooden chair hanging on the wall behind him.

Where the Action Is - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Kimble and Chris are on a busy freeway with several other cars when a police car pulls them over. But when they stop, the other cars all vanish and the road is suddenly deserted.

The Girl from Little Egypt - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: In the flashback to the night of Helen's murder, Kimble drives to the deserted lake after their argument. When he opens the car door, the wing window reflects several film crew members very clearly, including one person's arm and wristwatch.

Glass Tightrope - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Kimble's wanted poster in this episode lists his birthplace as Beloit, Wisconsin. In every other episode featuring close-ups of the poster, Kimble's birthplace is Stafford, Indiana.

Terror at High Point - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Dan tosses a silver dollar into the puddle of water and we see it sink. A few shots later, though, the coin is visible again, impossibly "floating" on the puddle's surface.

Never Stop Running - S1-E26

Revealing mistake: The stunt man's face can be seen during Kimble's fight with Ralph outside the hospital.

The Last Oasis - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: During the race through the desert in Annie's Jeep, the rear-screen projection couldn't be more obvious. In the supposedly speeding vehicle, Annie's hair is blowing slightly, but Kimble's never moves at all.

The White Knight - S3-E26

Visible crew/equipment: In the middle of the desert, the side of the white van Kimble drives captures the image of two huge rectangular studio light reflectors.

A.P.B. - S2-E28

Revealing mistake: At the beginning, the stunt man seen running toward the train in profile (when Kimble jumps aboard the freight car) is very easy to spot.

Nightmare at Northoak - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Gerard leaves the cell block, Kimble is at the cell door with his hands on the bars. Next shot, as Gerard exits, the cell door is visible in the background, and Kimble is no longer standing there. But in an immediate cut back to the cell, he's back with his hands on the bars again.

Somebody to Remember - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: The wine crates on Kimble's hand truck in the opening scenes shift positions by themselves between takes.
