New today Question: In the original Goldeneye game, the first level (The Dam) has a part of the level that was left incomplete but originally intended to be accessible as part of the mission. If you stand on the dam and look out from the towers or the dock on it on the side with all the water with the Sniper Rifle's scope, you can see the unfinished area on the edge of the map left there. So I wonder is there any such similar place in the remake of this game as sort of tribute or something. A similar inaccessible area viewable by scope? Or an area that is accessible? Or anything at all?

Episode #2.1 - S2-E1

New today Question: In the street scene with the three brothers leaving in a car for London, the car has 'Fiat' the grille. In the next scene with the car, there is nothing on the grille. Could they have had this car, at that time? After all there was mention of 'Bugatti' at least he beginning of the same episode. Would a Lanchester made in Sparkbrook be more likely?

New today Question: Why does James vomit before each race?

Question: If the Sultan of Turkey needed 1,000 boys to be trained for his army, then why not just use the Turks' own children? Why demand the children that were under Vlad's protection?

New today Answer: It was very common in the Middle Ages for those who ruled over an area to demand various forms of tribute, a very common one being soldiers or children to train as soldiers.

Show generally

Question: In this version of the character, why is he named David Banner instead of Bruce Banner?

New today Answer: Bruce has always been the character's middle name. In the comics he is Robert Bruce Banner, here he is David Bruce Banner. Apparently the executives behind the show preferred the name David.

Question: To elaborate on the question regarding Drago facing criminal charges for killing Apollo: when he pushes the ref aside you say that in real life the fight would have been stopped, however, he almost lands the fatal blow right afterwards so he didn't give anyone time to stop it, wouldn't he be charged with criminally negligent manslaughter or something similar? I can understand him not facing charges if it had happened during the normal course of the fight, but the fact that he didn't allow the ref to stop the fight leads me to believe that he was negligent and thus responsible for Apollo's death.

New today Answer: Unless Drago did something deliberately illegal to increase damage (altering his gloves or wraps like Luis Resto), then no. Risk of severe injury is a standard for contact sports and boxing especially.

New today Question: Why is this movie titled The Edge? Why didn't Alec Baldwin let Hopkins go down the rapids and die that way if he wanted him dead?

Question: I have seen and heard this movie referred to as both Philosophers Stone, and Sorcerer's Stone. Why and when are both used and what is correct? Why is the wrong one also used?

New today Answer: Here is the explanation on IMDb'S website: To appeal to the American audience. This was a marketing decision made by author Rowling and Scholastic, the publishing house that released the novel in the United States. The decision to change Philosopher to Sorcerer was made because, in the U.S., a philosopher connotes a scholar of philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, logic, and other related fields. Philosopher does not typically connote an alchemist or magician, and magic is essential to the Harry Potter books. Consequently, the publisher suggested using another word with a more magical connotation, and Rowling suggested Sorcerer. Rowling gives this explanation: "Arthur Levine, my American editor, and I decided that words should be altered only where we felt they would be incomprehensible, even in context, to an American reader. The title change was Arthur's idea initially, because he felt that the British title gave a misleading idea of the subject matter. In England, we discussed several alternative titles and Sorcerer's Stone was my idea." For the movie, the different titles were used in different markets, and each scene where the Stone's name is used had to be filmed twice, once with "Philosopher's Stone" in the dialogue and once with "Sorcerer's Stone."

New today Question: I just want to know the name of a song. When Cruise goes into his house to tell his wife it's bugged there's a jazz song playing. You know, the one where he turns up the volume and whispers in her ear. Then she takes off running. Who sings that song? I can't find it anywhere!

Question: Is it true that Voldemort's eyes are not red in the movies so that he will be less scary for younger viewers?

New today Answer: Not at all. In fact, David Heyman made the decision for his eyes to be blue in the films for him to be more scary! They felt that his red eyes in Sorcerer's Stone did not show enough emotion to make him an evil character. It was felt in Goblet of Fire that the light blue eyes would be perfect to show his evil in the moonlight, and they kept it on for later films.

Question: In the first chapter Frank Bryce overhears Wormtail and Voldemort's plans about killing Harry. Voldemort tells Wormtail "Come Wormtail, one more death and our path to Harry Potter is clear." A couple pages later it is mentioned again... "One more murder...my faithful servant at Hogwarts...Harry Potter is as good as mine." Whose murder/death are they talking about?

New today Answer: Since they're rigging the Tri-Wizard Challenge, Voldemort might have anticipated a second Hogwarts student of appropriate age would be chosen, and selected Cedric knowing that Harry would try to share the trophy with him and he'd then have to be killed.

Question: How old are Howard Stark and Tony Stark supposed to be? Howard seems to be in his twenties during ww2 in this movie however his son looks like he's in his late 30's in the Iron Man movies. My grandparent were born during the war and their kids are now in their 50's/60's themselves, for Howard to have been in his early 20's during the war and still have a son who only around 40 in the 2010's then he must have had Tony when he was in his 60's maybe late 50's. Am I mistaken or has the movie kind of glossed over the fact that the ages don't quite match up?

New today Answer: Howard Stark was born in 1917, making him 25 around the time of the film. Tony was born in 1970. Making Howard 53 when Tony was born. Their ages match fine. As an industrialist it's likely he fathered Tony at a higher age, and men have fathered children at much higher ages.

Question: When Punjab is following the kidnapper's truck, he calls Mr. Warbucks to tell him where the truck is. How do either of them have phones when car phones weren't invented until the 40's at the very earliest?

New today Answer: Two-way mobile radios were invented in the 20s. With Mr. Warbucks' money, he would have been able to put two-way radios in all of his vehicles, and the microphone/speaker in the shape of a telephone receiver would then be an aesthetic choice.

Question: Why does Sato's nephew Chozen take an immediate dislike to Daniel?

New today Answer: Miyagi and Sato were once close friends who became bitter enemies when they loved the same woman; Chozen's instant dislike of Daniel is simply because Daniel is the student of his uncle's enemy.

Question: After Dutch defeats the alien and decides not to smash his face with the rock he asked the alien "what the hell are you." Can anybody make out with the alien is trying to say, because in previous scenes we can hear what the alien is saying in English?

New today Answer: The predator wasn't speaking in English, it was mocking Dutch by playing recordings of his now-dead team. When Dutch says "What the hell are you?", the predator plays back that question, although it sounds distorted as its systems are damaged.

Call Girl - S11-E14

Question: Last line of the show, Stewie says "can I interest you guys in two and a quarter way". What does that mean?

New today Answer: He's insisting that he joins in on Peter and Lois having sex. Usually sex between three people would be called a "three way", but since Stewie is only a baby and hasn't fully grown up yet, he would only be a quarter of a person, which would equal up to two and a quarter people.

Question: Snape informed Voldemort that there was a prophecy that a wizard would cause the end of his reign. What made Voldemort believe that it was Harry, when it could have actually been any wizard at any time?

New this week Answer: It couldn't have been any wizard. The prophecy was very specific. "The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches" - so it was someone who was going to be born soon. "Born to those who have thrice defied him" - his parents must have escaped Voldemort three times. "Born as the seventh month dies" - and they must be born at the end of July. At this point, it could only have been Harry or Neville, as only they fit the requirements. "And the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal" - Voldemort chose Harry because they were both half-bloods. "But he will have power the Dark Lord knows not" - this refers to Harry's amazing capacity to love.

Question: At the end of the movie, when White is crawling towards Orange, you can hear Pink in the background. He already ran out and you could hear him having a shootout with the cops. At some point it sounds likes he gets shot and is ordered to surrendered by the cops. My question is: did Pink surrender and get arrested, or did he pretend to surrender and continue to shoot? Also because next the cops ran in on White and Orange, does that mean that Pink is dead or being chased by other cops?

New this week Answer: He gets shot and then arrested outside the warehouse.
