Audio/visual unsynchronised 

At various points throughout all 3 parts of the Mini-Series, the vocal reverberation effect that is supposedly one of the only ways a Visitor can be detected as not human is either very low or completely missing from the sound mix. This is present on both the original 1984 broadcast as well as the DVD release.

Plot holes 

The Visitors have traveled all the way to Earth to steal its water resources which are claimed to rare. However, there are numerous comets in the Oort Cloud and on moons of the gas giants orbiting the Sun at farther distances that could have provided them with vastly more water than the Earth ever could. The Visitors, being able to travel vast distances through, would have known this making their unnecessary trip to Earth pointless.

Revealing mistakes 

The Visitors' vulnerability to firearms seems to be tied to the needs of story, rather than anything substantial. SOmetimes firearms work on them; other times; they don't.
