The Mysterious Dr. T - S3-E13

Other mistake: At the end, when Siegfried is about to shoot Max, if you look in the chambers of his gun, there's no bullets in there. So Siegfried is going to kill Max with a puff of air.


The Mysterious Dr. T - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: When Max brings the coffee to the doctor's office, his suit is dark blue. After the opening credits he has no time to change, so how come his suit becomes dark gray?

Suggested correction: After watching the scenes, his suit never changes color. It's always a dark grey, never dark blue.


Don't Look Back - S3-E18

Factual error: In this episode, Max is wrongly convicted of murder in the first degree. However, first degree murder is actually pre-planned murder. As revealed earlier when the Max impostor holds up the bank, his partner compliments him on killing the guard as though it was a spontaneous decision. As the court does not know whether killing the guard was part of the plan, it was most likely that Max would be convicted of second-degree (intentional, but not pre-planned) murder.

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: For some inexplicable reason, at one point, both teams have the same coloured vest. At other times, the Iron Curtain Team's vests are maroon.

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When Hymie is investigating the unconscious man in the shower, for some the reason the man is wearing underpants even though he is in a shower. Evidently for modesty.

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: When Purvis is about to go onto the field, it cuts to a close up of Purvis' face and you can actually see folds in the fake sky behind Purvis.

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Other mistake: The announcer says that the competitors have to run a mile in seven laps. When Hymie begins running, it is clear that the track is way too long for seven laps to qualify as a mile. Maybe it qualifies as 4 miles, perhaps.

Run, Robot, Run - S3-E23

Factual error: In several shots in the mile run, Hymie is in the same lane as the Iron Curtain runners, which is illegal and results in disqualification.

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: In the episode, first Siegfried states that he was contacted in his apartment by Mr Pfister. Later, when talking to Max and 99, he states that Pfister stopped him in the street and asked him.

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Other mistake: There are several shots of the carrier pigeon flying home from the group of agents, but in those shots it is not a pigeon. Pigeons do not have wings that big.

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Deliberate mistake: Pfister states that there are two minutes until he destroys the world, but when he begins preparing, if you use a stopwatch, two minutes never pass, the clock that Pfister reads from is just exceptionally fast.

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: In the first shot on the rooftop, Pfister is wearing thick glasses on his head. In all the other shots, he has no glasses with no time to remove them.

Spy, Spy, Birdie - S3-E22

Other mistake: Siegfried pulls out a pigeon and says that it is going to the Pentagon, but if you see his position compared to an earlier shot of the cages, he pulls out the one that is going to London.

The Reluctant Redhead - S3-E26

Continuity mistake: When Max and Bodecker are escaping, Max has black gloves in one shot, but in all others his hands are uncovered.

The Groovy Guru - S3-E15

Audio problem: When Max and the taxi driver start fighting, the taxi driver misses an audible punch by several inches.

The Little Black Book: Part 1 - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: At the start in Max's apartment, the glass protective shield in the apartment changes from dirty and stained to clear.

The Little Black Book: Part 1 - S3-E16

Visible crew/equipment: In both part 1 and 2, when the KAOS agents are staking out Max's house, a crew member is reflected on the frame of their car's windscreen.

The Little Black Book: Part 2 - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Max and Sid are talking at the start, the silhouette that's there to fool assassins is already up, but Max hadn't pushed the button yet. He doesn't press it until the end of the scene.

The Little Black Book: Part 2 - S3-E17

Other mistake: When the KAOS assassin fires at Max's window, there are no bullet holes in the window when there should be.

The Little Black Book: Part 2 - S3-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When Max and Sid are talking to the CONTROL lawyer, a square reflector screen is reflected in the CONTROL lawyer's glasses.

School Days - S1-E3

Max: When the moon is full, the tide is high.
Old Lady: You must want the spy school, that's next door.
