The Outer Limits

It Crawled Out of the Woodwork - S1-E11

Factual error: When the energy monster kills his entire research staff by stopping their hearts, Dr. Block brings them all back to life (with their minds and personalities intact) by installing pacemakers. But when the heart stops functioning, brain death occurs within minutes. For this to work, he'd not only have to operate on several people simultaneously, he'd also have to be the fastest heart surgeon on Earth.

The Invisibles - S1-E19

Factual error: The General brandishes a six-shooter pistol with an enormous silencer attached to it. He's a career military guy who should definitely know better, so he gets a failing grade in Basic Weaponry 101. Silencers don't work on revolvers.

The Inheritors (2) - S2-E11

Factual error: Outside the warehouse, one of Ballard's men is talking on a car phone. We're not sure who he could connect with, though. The car has no mobile transmission antenna, and in the 60s, it would have needed a very large one.

Cold Hands, Warm Heart - S2-E2

Factual error: Barton's ship, we're told, has been designed only to orbit Venus, not land there. Yet he somehow lands anyway - on a planet with atmospheric pressure and broiling temperatures that should have crushed and incinerated him instantly.

Cold Hands, Warm Heart - S2-E2

Factual error: While orbiting Venus, Barton receives instant responses to his radio communications with Earth. At that distance, there'd be a transmission delay: at least 7-8 minutes.

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.



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.
