The Outer Limits

Behold, Eck! - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Stone's assistant helps him up from the floor, there's a lopsided, circular diagram drawn on the chalkboard behind them. One shot later, the diagram has changed into a perfectly round circle and has moved itself several inches higher on the board.

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: The cloth pillows stabilizing the moonstone on the lab counter change positions several times between takes.

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: Dr. Brice's name tag is partially tucked under her collar when she's inside the lab. When she walks into the corridor, the tag has shifted position and is outside the collar. Later, back in the lab, the tag keeps changing from over to under her collar repeatedly.

The Human Factor - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When the lab equipment shorts out after the earthquake, the unconscious Major Brothers is lying with his head propped up against the wall. But when Hamilton reaches him in the next shot, he's suddenly lying flat and is nowhere near the wall.

The Bellero Shield - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: In the lab, the alien's arms change positions instantaneously between shots.

It Crawled Out of the Woodwork - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Joey turns off the bathtub tap, we can see that the water is no longer flowing. But the sound of running water continues. And a few shots later, the water is flowing once more, even though Joey hasn't gone near the tub again.

Don't Open Till Doomsday - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Harvey peeks into the small hole in the box using his right eye. On the first view from inside the box, a right eye is indeed looking in. But when the monster appears, a left eye is peering through the hole. The shot cuts immediately back to Harvey, who still has his right eye pressed to the opening.

Second Chance - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: The alien's torn spacesuit sleeve somehow mends itself, but then is torn again a few shots later.

00:46:00 - 00:47:50

Jean G

The Sixth Finger - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: The window in the chamber door changes its size between shots. At first, we can see just Gwyllm's head. But then the window somehow grows so that his head and shoulders are visible. When the window gets smaller again, only part of his head is visible.

00:46:00

Jean G

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: General Stocker falls into a lunar quicksand pit and starts to sink. One arm disappears beneath the sand, but in the next shot, both his arms are outstretched and waving for help.

00:04:25

Controlled Experiment - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Phobos sets up the time converter, the grid on his large round scope has a diamond-shaped pattern. But when we see it from his point of view, the grid comprises perfect squares instead, and contains numbers that weren't there before.

00:15:00

The Premonition - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene after the second crash, when the pilot and his wife "borrow" the jeep to return to the base, the shot is flipped, reversing the positions of the husband and wife in a mirror image of the real vehicle, placing the "driver" in the passenger position and the spare tire, which should be on the near side, is now on the far side. In the next shot, as the vehicle nears the base, everything suddenly resumes the correct perspective.

The Invisible Enemy - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: From the Mars rocket's cockpit, Boomer hears Thomas scream once, shouts, "I'm coming!" and races out. When Earth Command hears this on delayed radio transmission 3.5 minutes later (it would take much longer than that from Mars, by the way), there's added dialogue, and this time Boomer never says "I'm coming." We also hear Thomas scream twice instead of just once.

Demon With A Glass Hand - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Trent and the Kiban agent crash through a glass window during their fight in the attic. After Constanza pulls off the alien's medallion and disintegrates him, Trent, who is bent backward at the waist over the windowsill, has instantly moved between takes to a position much farther out onto the ledge.

Expanding Human - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: At the end, the unconscious Lt. Branch changes position on the floor between takes.

00:45:05

Jean G

Demon With A Glass Hand - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Trent pushes three of the hand-shaped computer's fingers back as far as they will go, as it instructs him to do. In one brief shot after this, the fingers have returned to their normal position. One shot later, they're pushed back again.

The Inheritors (2) - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Ballard reports that 6 bullets were fired at Minns. He's a trained investigator, but he apparently can't count as well as the viewers can. We saw his men fire at Minns - 7 times.

00:07:40

Jean G

Cry of Silence - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Andy's car crashes into a boulder in the beginning and stalls. But when he gets the engine started and drives away at the end, there's no damage at all to the front end of the car.

00:49:30

Behold, Eck! - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Eck tears a leaf from Stone's notebook. But the close-up insert of the page and the following shot of it being torn out reveal two completely different sheets of paper. The first has only a brief list of four names and addresses. The second is covered with handwritten notes. They don't match, yet they're supposed to be the same page.

The Forms of Things Unknown - S1-E32

Continuity mistake: After running through the woods getting soaked by pouring rain, Casha arrives on Kollos' doorstep with her hair neatly coiffed and perfectly dry. In fact, within minutes of coming in out of the downpour, Casha, Leonora and Tone all have completely dry hair and clothes.

00:15:00

Jean G

The Probe - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When she's inside the giant test tube, Amanda raises her arms over her head. In the very next shot, with no time for her to have moved that fast, her arms are straight down and held rigidly at her sides.

00:36:15

Jean G

Moonstone - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: In the lab, Anderson collapses with his arms crossed above his head. When the shot cuts, his arms are suddenly uncrossed.

Trivia

This is the only Outer Limits episode that lacks both opening and closing narration. It was absent because "Forms" was the unsold pilot for a series called The Unknown. A second version, stripped of all its supernatural elements (Tone was simply a mad scientist, not a real time traveler), also failed to sell.
