The Outer Limits

Cold Hands, Warm Heart - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: Barton is terrified by a plant-like alien floating outside his spaceship window. The Venusian critter might be a heck of a lot scarier if it bore less resemblance to a furry stalk of celery - and if only its puppet strings weren't showing.

Jean G

The Galaxy Being - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: As the energy being moves down the city sidewalk, we see its shadow on the concrete. Right beside that, however, we can also see the distinctly-shaped shadow of the camera.


Jean G

The Architects of Fear - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Stanley levitates the meteor with his brain power, the wires that actually lift the rock are very easy to spot at the top of the screen.

The Inheritors (1) - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When the black Ford pulls up to Minns' apartment building and Ballard gets out, several studio lights and reflectors are mirrored in the car's shiny surface.

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.
