Spend - S5-E14

Bates Motel picture

Trust Me - S1-E4

Other mistake: After the scene where Norman texts Bradley that he is coming over, the next shot is Norman looking at the small transcript of his messages to her. If you look, you can see that the transcript starts at 2:34 PM. However, it's nighttime. You can even see the time says 2:34 PM at the top of the phone screen. Also, the original text of 'Hey' is missing although he texted her immediately after receiving it with 'I want to come over and see you.' (00:37:40)

Dark Shadows picture

Fringe picture

A New Day in the Old Town - S2-E1

Other mistake: The killer from another dimension shape shifts into the appearance of the victim, leaving the victim's body. But it transforms into Charlie's appearance and leaves behind its former female nurse shape, hiding Charlie's body to dispose of later. It would have needed to transform from the nurse shape, not out of nothing. The original nurse's body was not at that location.

Suggested correction: The shapeshifter transformed into Charlie using his dead body which it then disposes of at the end of the episode.

But when the shapeshifter transforms into Charlie, he shouldn't be leaving the body of the nurse behind since he had killed the nurse before entering the hospital and transformed there into her. The only dead body in that last scene should be Charlie's.

Attack Of The Mutant (1) - S2-E2

Other mistake: In part 2, it was revealed that Libby was really the Masked Mutant all along but, in one scene in this episode, Libby is sitting next to Skipper while the Masked Mutant is standing on top of the bus.

Stranger Things picture

Chapter One: MADMAX - S2-E1

Other mistake: In the beginning when Kali and her gang are running from the police in Pittsburgh and she "collapses" the tunnel, her 008 tattoo is shown this way so we can read it as such, but it should in fact be read 800 to be the correct way. (00:03:15)

Kingdom Come - S1-E6

Other mistake: At the start of chapter 12 in the episode "Kingdom Come," Frank returns home via taxi. In front of his house in Seattle, WA, there is a blonde woman walking a Rottweiler dog.

Supernatural picture

Provenance - S1-E19

Other mistake: In the scene where Sam, Dean and Sarah go to compare the painting to the earlier photo of it, Dean, noticing the changed position of the razor, says, "Jared, check it out." He is speaking to the character Sam. The actor's name is Jared. [Confirmed in cast interviews].

Haven picture

Stay - S3-E2

Other mistake: Duke is checking old copies of the Haven Herald around the time of Lucy (27 years ago). A headline on the one he's reading is about Lucy's disappearance. A moment later, he's reading a story about a meteor shower that occurs every 27 years; but the text we can see states that it just happened, and refers to dates in 2010 (having just happened, not '27 years from now'). This paper is supposed to be a 1983 edition. Also there is fake Latin 'filler text' printed in some columns.


Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Lucy's disappearance is at the top of the newspaper and the hunter storm is at the bottom of the same page. Also, the paper predicts the next storm to occur. Just like how we know when to expect the next lunar eclipse or the next meteor shower, so I don't see how this is a mistake.

It's not a prediction of events to come, it's an article telling about the recent event, which states it was seen on the morning of the October 21, 2010. It even compares the 2010 shower to a previous shower that occurred in 2009. The mistake is valid.

Dracula picture

The Dark Compass - S1-E3

Other mistake: At the end, when the reflection of burned Lucy still shows her beautiful, Dracula's reflection shows him as he is seen; not old and ugly as in his usual mirror reflections.

Meet in the Middle - S2-E1

Other mistake: Phil looks up the driving time from Ashford and Diamond Falls. It is 4 hours 12 minutes. Later, he goes to meet Annie, and she has suggested they meet at Colson Bay, which is "in the middle." He is on a train, and he says that in 4 hours 12 minutes he will meet her. Even ignoring the fact that the train ride duration may or may not be four hours 12 minutes, that cannot be, as they are meeting "in the middle" of that distance.

Twin Peaks picture

Episode Eight (2) - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Cooper is on the floor after being shot, as he's signing the check, he is doing so with the pen closed, and proceeds to click it open as he hands it back to the room service.
