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.

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.

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.
