Andor (2022)

Reckoning - S1-E3

Stupidity: Andor and Luthen set a vehicle to drive and distract the security team. The vehicle is destroyed, and they immediately round the corner in full view of the team on a speeder and drive away, then blow up the vehicle. They could have driven away on any number of other streets without revealing that they weren't in the vehicle, keeping their escape secret. And if they blew it up before the team looked too closely they might have even been deemed to have been killed in the crash.

Bones (2005)

Bodies in the Book - S2-E15

Stupidity: Bones shoots the stalker's door lock...and then kicks the door in anyway. Shooting the lock achieves nothing, it wouldn't have made the door any easier to kick in, it's just him generating paperwork and an issue with his shrink.

Riddick (2013)

Stupidity: They go to great pains to lock the nodes behind an explosive lock, then have a debate about whether Riddick's somehow broken in. They eventually unlock them, check they're still in place...then just leave the locker completely unattended and unlocked while they discuss plans, and Riddick of course steals the nodes.

Riddick (2013)

Other mistake: Matthew Nable plays "Boss" Johns, the father of William J. Johns in Pitch Black, who was played by Cole Hauser. But the two actors are only a couple of years apart in age - Nable doesn't look anywhere near old enough to be Hauser's father. Would have made more sense for him to be an older brother.

Other mistake: In the hot dog finger universe, everyone uses their feet for dexterous things, like playing the piano...but the pianos themselves are still designed exactly like our universe, at waist height where it's convenient for playing with hands, but very uncomfortable to play with your feet.

Everything Everywhere All at Once mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The instructions Evelyn is given had two copies created for the film - the handwriting and circling of the numbers change between shots when she's reading them in the IRS office. Notably the first time we see the instructions it says "don't forget to breath" at the bottom, then later that's changed to "breathe" as it should be. Although interestingly that change is the only one on that version of the notes, implying someone caught the grammatical error during filming and added the "E."

A Normal Amount of Rage - S1-E1

Question: When talking about "geniuses in the family" at the start, Bruce says "there's also Ched", at least according to the subtitles. Is this another Banner cousin with Marvel ties, or just a random throwaway line?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Answer: This is answered in the second episode, where we meet Ched who's clearly not a genius. Given this first episode was originally written as the penultimate one of the series, and tweaked as the premiere later, it makes more sense why that line might be a throwaway by Bruce, given if it was episode 8 as intended the audience would already have met Ched and understand how he's not being remotely serious.

Chosen answer: According to Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ched is a relative of Bruce Banner and Jennifer Walters. There is a character profile but with no additional information provided yet, nor is there much info online available elsewhere. This appears to be a new character that has yet to appear.

Boston Legal (2004)

Oral Contracts - S4-E8

Character mistake: Lorraine mistakenly tells Denny to "call 999" instead of 911, and when asked about it by Katie, denies having ever spent time in the UK (later revealed to be a lie). But this isn't some high-pressure slip of the tongue, she's highly intelligent and has been in America for a decent length of time, is working hard to maintain her facade of being born and bred American, so there's no way she'd slip up over such an obvious thing.

Son of the Defender - S3-E18

Trivia: The footage of Denny Crane as a young man trying a case with his father comes from a TV play called "The Defender", broadcast live in 1957. The details of the case and trial are the same as referenced in this episode, and the title of this episode is a direct reference. One notable difference is that Joseph Gordon, here played by James Keane, was played by Steve McQueen in the original, who of course couldn't reprise his role.

Angel of Death - S3-E11

Other mistake: As Denny asks "did she sleep in your room?" Alan leaves Denny's hotel room, pulling the door behind him. The swinging door catch is in the closed position, sticking out from the door frame which would prevent the door from being able to shut - the shot cuts a fraction before impact and we hear the sound of the door closing anyway.

Let Sales Ring - S1-E16

Trivia: Alan mentions networks even censoring their scripted shows - that's a pointed reference to the fact that ABC executives ordered any explicit references of Fox News to be removed from this episode.

Hired Guns - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: As Denny walks out of his office after shooting the assailant, Sally moves to the doorway, hands by her sides. Shot cuts to further away and her hand is suddenly up by her mouth. (00:32:40)
