Show generally

Question: If Chris says Piper died when he was 12 why was she old at the end? And why don't they say how she died?

New this week Answer: Chris originally came from a Dark Future that was changed when he saved Paige's life. It's in that dark future that Piper died.

Still Charmed & Kicking - S8-E1

New this week Question: How did the charmed ones save themselves from dying in the nexus with Zankou when everyone thought that they died?

Question: Why did Thade kill the two apes that were with him after they showed him the trail left by Leo's pod?

New today Answer: To prevent anyone else from learning that Leo came from space. After Pericles' ship crashed, there was a prophecy of a second coming of Semos, the founder of Ape civilization. Thade wants to kill all humans, so if anyone found out, it would be considered a sign and the council might consider making peace with the humans.

Question: Wallace's briefcase has a sticker upon it saying: Blackpool, Bognor and Beaconsfield. To what do they refer?

New today Answer: Bognor Regis and Blackpool are seaside towns, so presumably, those are places Wallace and Gromit have been on holiday in the past. Beaconsfield is an inside joke: It's where the National Film and Television School is located and a number of scenes were filmed there.

New this week Question: Who is the old man wearing a red hat and holding a shovel in Wallace's allotment? He felll into Wallace's basement when Gromit opens the allotment doors.

New this week Question: Near the end, when Nux flips the War Rig, the Doof Wagon smashes into it and the guitar is flung forward. What happened to the Doof Warrior that was playing the guitar?

New this week Question: Is it realistic that Mars vehicles like Mark's rover or in some scenes his handcart would use rubber tyres? No Mars rover before used them and I would think they could not stand the low Martian atmosphere and temperature differences.

Fast Enough - S1-E23

New this week Question: At the end of this episode when Eddie Thawne shoots himself to stop Eobard Thawne from being born, wouldn't that mean Barry Allen's mom would have never been stabbed? So essentially The Flash could've saved his mom from being stabbed anyway.

Question: The Collector was already a holder of the Aether (reality stone). Once the Orb (power stone I believe) destroyed the majority of his place, where do you think he hid the Aether?

New today Answer: It's unlikely that the place on Knowhere is the only location he has. He could easily have moved it to another.

Greg Dwyer

Question: Where did Star Lord get AA batteries for his Walkman?

New this week Answer: Likely he didn't, but instead was able to use an alternate power source that he found or was introduced to during his time in outer space.

Serious B

Question: If the MAV could be blown over by a storm of sufficient force, wasn't it very risky dropping the Ares IV Mav five years in advance of the mission?

New today Answer: Yes, it is very risky unless the new Ares MAV is in an area with much calmer weather patterns.

New this week Question: How much money and work was required to build the cube? I know that only one actual cube was built. I'm asking this about the actual cube built in real life; not the in-universe cube.

Question: How exactly was Semos able to organize a rebellion against the humans, since he was just an ordinary ape who was trained for whatever assignment he would be needed for?

New this week Answer: The later films show up that humanity was hit with a global plague as Caesar the ape started their revolt, weakening them enough for the apes to win.

Question: In the original Superman television series, Superman created a duplicate of himself so that he could be in two places at once. However, as one went to pull the bars out of the wall, he had to have the other help, as the strength of one was half that of the original. That said, how is it that both Clark and Evil Superman have the same strength of the whole being after being split?

New this week Answer: The effects of Red Kryptonite on Superman are always random and unpredictable. In the comics, the effect lasts 24 hours, however, for a film, they last as long as the writer needs them to. This time, it copied all of his powers as well to make the Evil Superman.

New this week Question: Is Tommy supposed to be the "next" Jason? I'm really confused by the ending.

Question: How did they do the trick where Mary takes the lamp and all of the other things out of her bag?

New this week Answer: A false bottom in the bag and a hole in the table with a false background under it so we can't see the person handing the items up through the bag.

Dear Dad - S1-E12

Question: A number of times it is mentioned that the outfit is unarmed, yet several times, Frank has a rifle, or a pistol, and once Klinger had a grenade, and the guards and Klinger, while on sentry duty, has a rifle. Was this standard, or is this a mistake?

New this week Answer: Even an Army field hospital would have SOME weapons for self-defense if the enemy attacked. What's meant is that it's not a combat outfit, and therefore wouldn't have enough weapons to actually attack anyone. (It's also mentioned a few times that the Officer of the Watch is supposed to carry a pistol at all times, but Hawkeye refuses to do it when he's in charge and Colonels Blake and Potter don't enforce the rule).

New this week Question: What song was played in the beginning of the movie?

Business Guy - S8-E9

Question: In the episode, Peter threatens to fire Lois, and she responds with "you wouldn't" and Peter then replies with "Oh really, does the name Lacey Chabert mean anything to you?" which in turn makes Lois go wide eyed and reply with "OK, I'll behave" and Peter then goes on to add "Yes you will" Can anyone explain this joke if it is a joke to comprehend?

New this week Answer: Lacey Chabert was the actress who originally voiced Meg in early episodes. She left of her own accord due to being in school and other acting work; Seth MacFarlane has stated there was no tension with her leaving, but it makes for a handy joke for the show.

Jon Sandys

The Mouse - S4-E20

Question: The old man that comes in with his wife that can't breathe, the one that the head nurse tries to counsel and tempts him with a cup of coffee. I believe he is Alfred Hitchcock, though his name is not listed anywhere. Alfred Hitchcock is known for his cameo appearances in his own shows and in other shows. Can someone confirm that this is him? This is driving me nuts... It is toward the end of the episode, but I cannot give you times.

New this week Answer: I believe you are speaking of the old man, Mr. Wilson. He's played by J. Pat O'Malley.
