Doctor Who (1963)

Show generally

Question: In which season and episode is Gallifrey destroyed, or is it just a shocking new plot development for the new series?

Chosen answer: It was never destroyed on-screen; it was intact at the end of the TV movie, and destroyed by the start of the 2005 series. It was destroyed in the novel "The Ancestor Cell," but in a completely different manner to what happened in the series.

Dinsdale - S2-E1

Question: In the late part of the show, the reporter is interviewing the Piranha brothers' former schoolmaster, but their conversation is deliberately inaudible. Can any lip readers out there tell what they're saying, presumably improvised dialogue?

Chosen answer: Other than the teacher asking "I'm sorry?" at one point, it's complete gibberish.

The Simpsons (1989)

Question: The DVD features what the actors are actually saying. What is the actual joke told by Betty (the owl/bungee cord line) when translated into English?

Chosen answer: Nothing - that section of the movie was taken from the original "Tiger and Crane Fists," and so was never English to begin with.

Superman II (1980)

Question: Why was Richard Donner (the original hired director) fired?

Chosen answer: Because of several arguments with the producers, mainly stemming from the fact that Donner wanted to make the films serious, while the producers wanted to make them into a Batman-like comedy.
