Deliberate mistake: When Mary gets to the school where she is going to be teaching, all the children are standing outside wearing shoes. However when they come in to the school they are barefoot. I have a feeling this was done to show how poor the community she was teaching in was supposed to be, but it looked like too cold and rainy of a day to let the actors be outside barefoot.
Deliberate mistake: When the show premiered on March 18th, 1981 Ralph's last name started out as Hinkley, but after a couple of episodes had aired on TV, on March 30th a man named Hinckley shot then U.S. President Reagan and three other people, so in the remaining episodes of season 1 Ralph's last name was changed to Hanley. His last name was changed back to Hinkley in season 2.Super Grover
Deliberate mistake: Season 2, episode 6 "Identity Crisis": When Bizarro starts decaying into the parody form of Superman, his costume goes with it; the blue fades, and even the 'S' insignia changes. Strange that superhero garments change right alongside their wearers when they suffer from an unstable genetic effect. Were the clothes cloned right onto his body, instead of sewn?Daniel4646
Deliberate mistake: After Francis Haddock kills Red Rackham, he lights a fuse to the explosives. The fuse that was lit is only a foot long, yet he is somehow able to climb out the ship without anyone noticing, get into a boat and swim all the way to land before it explodes. At a foot long it would have exploded in 10 - 15 seconds, all of that would taken at least 10 minutes. (00:18:45)Casual Person
Deliberate mistake: Although it was done for plot purposes, no school photographer would only take just one shot of a class photo. They generally take up to 15 to 20, as it is difficult to get everyone to look at the camera and smile at once (and hopefully not pull silly faces).Gavin Jackson
