Chopper - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: The headless motorcycle rider's torso and arms are not in proportion to a real motorbike rider. The torso is obviously made larger to accommodate the stunt bike rider.

Continuity mistake: While Tony Vincenzo is eating, his butter knife instantly turns into a fork in the next shot.

Horror in the Heights - S1-E11

Factual error: Outside the Indian restaurant, the street curb is painted red. In Chicago, throughout the 1970s, curbs were painted white or yellow to indicate special parking zones; never red.

Watchful

Chopper - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When the headless biker attempts to run over Studs Spake, the biker crosses in front of the prone Spake. The instant shot then shows the biker crossing again, but this time behind Spake.

Revealing mistake: The footage of the traffic in front of Springfield Hospital where Helen Lynch is recuperating is recycled later in the episode.

Continuity mistake: When Kolchak looks through the window blinds at the crooks on the street, his fingers change position on the blinds as the scene cuts.

The Trevi Collection - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Kolchak approaches Madelaine with the witch's bag, it is upright in his hand. The scene quickly cuts and now the bag is hanging down in his fist.

The Trevi Collection - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Stock footage shows the same dress mannequins moving from and then staying in their same positions, even after moving and attacking Kolchak.

Scott215

Primal Scream - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Mr. Kitzmiller's secretary is about eye level with Kolchak when the camera shot is over Kolchak's left shoulder, but in the shots over the secretary's right shoulder she towers over him.

Primal Scream - S1-E13

Character mistake: The animal control officer tells Kolchak he was crazy shooting off a flash bulb at the gorilla, but the first frontal shot Kolchak took of the gorilla did not flash at all.

Scott215

Primal Scream - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Captain Molnar's arms go from being in front of his chest to down at his sides and back again as he and Kolchak speak outside the police squad room.

Scott215

Primal Scream - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Outside the police squad room, Captain Molnar grasps Kolchak's left hand, but the next shot shows Molnar's hands at his sides.

Primal Scream - S1-E13

Other mistake: Vincenzo is looking at a photo of the gorilla Kolchak took of it earlier in the episode. It is a side shot, but Kolchak took two pics when he encountered it, one frontal, and the other shot as the creature was running away from Kolchak and the authorities.

Scott215

Primal Scream - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Mr. Burton and Kolchak each hold a photo of the ape man's foot prints, but the next shot shows Kolchak holding all of the photos.

Scott215

Horror in the Heights - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: Opening scene shows Kolchak driving his convertible Mustang with the roof top up, but the next shots show the car with the roof top down and stowed.
