Continuity mistake: Kimble is wounded in the leg and is limping badly when he escapes at the end. Yet in the epilogue, supposedly occurring soon after, he's walking down a road with no sign of the limp, and has also acquired a cowboy hat that he didn't have before.

Season 2 generally

Continuity mistake: The captured Kimble lies face down on the ground and rests his head on his folded arms. When the shot cuts to a close-up, however, he's suddenly resting on his elbows and looking up instead.

Season 2 generally

Revealing mistake: During the fight with Fallon, Kimble's stunt double is glaringly obvious. He's taller and thinner, and doesn't even have the same color hair.

Last Second of a Big Dream - S2-E30

Continuity mistake: Kimble is locked in a tiger cage with a waffle-pattern wire mesh. But when he asks the major for help and the shot cuts to a close-up, Kimble is behind ordinary vertical bars, and the mesh has disappeared.

Moon Child - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Kimble orders coffee and a bowl of chili from the diner's owner, George. But George serves him a glass of water with the chili, and never does bring the coffee. Later, when the sheriff arrives and wants Kimble's dishes to get fingerprints, a cup of coffee mysteriously appears next to the bowl of chili.

A.P.B. - S2-E28

Revealing mistake: Matt Mooney pulls open the freight car's door, and we can see the swiftly passing landscape outside, but not a hair on his head is disturbed by the wind. Rear screen projections don't generate much of a breeze.

Corner of Hell - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: When Kimble leaps from the truck and runs into the woods, the stunt double's face is visible.

Corner of Hell - S2-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Gerard drives away in his '64 Ford Galaxie, and the side of the shiny new car captures a clear reflection of several studio lights and reflectors.

Tiger Left, Tiger Right - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: We hear Pryor's half of the conversation with the kidnapper, then the tape of both their voices played back by the police. On the tape, Pryor's inflections and pauses are completely different from the "live" conversation.

Tiger Left, Tiger Right - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Kimble's been kidnapped and held for ransom. He had nothing with him when he was taken, yet when he leaves the abandoned house with the kidnappers, he has a small suitcase. When they drop him off on the road, he doesn't have it. When, in the epilogue, he's shown walking, he's carrying a different, larger suitcase.

Man in a Chariot - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As Kimble gets into Gould's VW, the car door captures a fleeting but clear reflection of the film crew.
