to much stock footage is used for scenes when McNulty is stopping time.
Illogical possibilities for this timeframe include an marching army from WWII,
a policemen surrounded by horse-drawn carriages and 1920's cars.
|When McNulty runs past his frozen co-workers, the crumpled paper on it's way to the garage can, yet frozen in time and space, moves from side to side as McNulty runs past it.||When McNulty pleads with frozen bartender Joe, to move or say anything, Joe blinks his eyes.|
|LIVING DOLL||UNCLE SIMON||PROBE 7 - OVER AND OUT|
Erich unwraps the potato sack that he stuffed Talky Tina in, her left arm is
sticking straight up in
the air, but in the very next frame her arm is down at her side. Also,
when Erich falls down the stairs to his death, the doll falls down the
stairs with him. In the next
shot, the doll is back where it was before and rolls down the stairs by
several scenes with Uncle Simon's robot, the man inside the suit can be
seen through the slats in the robot's mouth.
ship's communication's monitor is damaged and tilts to the left. The reception from
home base is broadcast
at a visually level angle, but almost as if to compensate for the monitor
being tilted, actor Harold Gould
seems to angle his head to the right to make up for it.
|YOU DRIVE||YOU DRIVE||BLACK LEATHER JACKETS|
flubs are in this episode - First, the
paperboy is supposed to be twelve years old, but the actor seems to
be at least fifteen. Second,
Oliver Pope mentions the accident took place at 3rd and Park, and Lillian
Pope says the car broke down on her at 3rd and Park, but the radio report claims
the accident took place at 3rd and Elm. Third, when Lillian is struggling
with driving the car, in a long shot she's near an intersection
with a park on her left. In the next shot from inside the car, Lillian appears to
be on a residential street and her car comes to a complete
stop. In the next long shot, Lillian is back in the intersection and the car
traveling at least 20mph. Lastly, in the chase sequence, the ground goes from dry to
absolutely drenched in just a few seconds; the ground actually looks wet
the rain even begins. They must have filmed this scene prior to when the
car chases Pope before it starts raining because the windshield is covered with
dried rain spots.
There seems to have been two different houses used for the one house in this episode - one for the interior and the other for the exterior. In one scene, Oliver is shouting out at the neighbors from his bedroom window, which shows a brick wall outside of the window. Yet, when Oliver and Lillian are standing in the driveway the next morning, it's obvious that the house is made out of stucco and not brick. Also, an outside shot reveals the garage on the left side of the house, next to the front door. However, on the interior, the front door is on the other side of the house from the garage.
biker-aliens move into their house and the address is 11575, but later on when
neighbor Stu Tillman phones the sheriff to report them, he gives the same
numbers for his address.

|Anne Henderson has been wearing a band-aid on her middle right finger for twenty-five years.||When the older Anne goes riding, she's
top of the hill with her
cape extended outward with one arm. The it cuts to a close-up where her arm is not
extended, then back again to a shot
far away with her arm extended.
|QUEEN OF THE NILE||WHAT'S IN THE BOX?||THE MASKS|
|Morris is stylishly out of time with a decidedly non-1920s hairstyle for 1923. Then, to avoid the questions you'd think would arise from her being a movie star, she decides not to change the hairstyle.||
The cops at the crime-scene are also there to help with the execution. Also, when Phyllis closes her suitcase while in the bedroom, she also fastens the strap. Yet when she opens the suitcase in the living room, she doesn't unfasten it.
|In one shot, Wilfred Jr.'s hair goes from messy to combed.|
|I AM THE NIGHT - COLOR ME BLACK||JEOPARDY ROOM||STOPOVER IN A QUIET TOWN|
date is May 25, 1964, but public records show that the last public
hanging in the United States was in 1936. Also, during the final
radio broadcast, they announce
that the darkness has fallen over Dallas at 2:00 pm, even
though it should have fallen somewhere closer
to 10:00 am.
trying to answer the telephone, Kuchenko quickly moves from in front of the door to
halfway across the room.
|There's a crewman's shadow on the refrigerator.|
|STOPOVER IN A QUIET TOWN||THE BEWITCHIN' POOL||
|There are problems in the transfer over to Rod Serling.||Several things amiss in this episode - First, the opening scene is actually the closing scene, giving away the entire episode. Second, there are two opening narrations; one after the first (final) scene where he appears on screen as per usual. Then there is another narration (off-screen, first season style) after the return from commercials. Third, the voice of Sport is dubbed in by June Foray, but only in the scenes with the parents. In the scenes with Aunt T, the actress who played Sport, Mary Badham, gets to use her own voice.|
