The Spy Who Met Himself - S3-E1

The Spy Who Met Himself - S3-E1

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: Several times during the prison escape scene, the stone wall visibly wobbles.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: When Max is cutting through the wall with his laser pen, the wall is obviously pre-cut. You can see the joins.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Max cuts the hole in the wall, the shot shows that behind the prison wall is another wall. When the group climb out of the hole, they are in a big deserted area with no sign of a wall.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Factual error: When the soldiers fire their rifles at the start of the episode, there should be smoke or muzzle flash at the end of the barrel, but nothing happens.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: The drawers in Max's hotel room have no bottom part in them, but Max passes right between the two drawers when he straightens up, so they have no inside-facing part either.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Other mistake: The glass of lemonade that the room service drinks is poisoned. The room service says it's for the other room when Max tries to drink it, but if you look closely, Don Adams does drink a bit of the liquid, so he should have died.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: At the carnival scene, the shot zooming in on the square shows that the Juggler's balls are blue. In all the other shots, they are white.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: The juggler accidentally drops the ball in his act, but if you look at the final part of his performance, he deliberately holds one of the balls in his hands so he can miss the final one.

Viva Smart - S3-E2

Other mistake: At the carnival scene, in one a close-up shots of Max and 99 performing, a female extra in one of the windows waves at the camera.

Witness for the Persecution - S3-E3

Plot hole: In this episode, the villain makes a phone call to KAOS headquarters when he's captured demanding that they kill Max to stop him testifying in court against him. Later, several say that Max is the only witness to the villain's crimes, but the Chief and 99 were in the room when the villain made the call, so they could have been witnesses to "conspiracy to commit murder."

Witness for the Persecution - S3-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Doctor Baskum demonstrates the cube of safety, a moving boom mike pole is reflected in the glass of the cube.

Witness for the Persecution - S3-E3

Other mistake: In Max's apartment, the KAOS agents fire bullets everywhere, but nothing in the room sparks, explodes or does anything when hit by bullets.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Assuming the submitter meant Max (since there is no Ma character in this episode), the agents aren't firing at anything in the room other than the Cube of Safety, which isn't made of a spark-able material nor would it "explode".

Bishop73

Witness for the Persecution - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode Max claims a fear of lightning. But in many other episodes, he's very close to lightning, and he's fine.

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.
