New this month Stupidity: The fact that Bo Gentry can't hit a curveball shouldn't automatically qualify him as a poor draft selection, as it's implied near film's end. His ability to recognize and hit curves would improve with the experience and training he would acquire in the minor leagues, particularly if working consistently with a hitting coach; it's literally in their job title to coach players who need help with their batting output.

Supergirl (2015)

Human for a Day - S1-E7

New this month Character mistake: When Kara breaks her arm, she says that she doesn't need to go to a hospital because the bone will heal when her powers return. She would still need a splint or a cast to ensure that the bone sets in place properly; leaving it untreated runs the risk of a physical deformity or other unforeseen complications down the road.

Factual error: The role of MI6 shown in the film actually falls under the purview of MI5, Britain's domestic intelligence service; as the country's version of the CIA, MI6's mandate is the covert collection of foreign intelligence overseas.

12 Monkeys (2015)

Die Glocke - S4-E6

Other mistake: When Jones is trying to convince Herr Waesch that she's the owner of the estate where his gala is being held, subtitles of his reply read "I personally procured this home. It's owners were French." The contraction "it's" should be the possessive "its."

Zoo (2015)

First Blood - S1-E1

Other mistake: When he and Chloe encounter a group of lions scouring for food, what tips Oz off that something is wrong is the unusual sight of more than two males together. The more obvious indicator is that they are all male; in lion prides under normal circumstances, the hunting and gathering of food is done by the females.

Day 51 - S1-E6

Gary Noesner: You cannot remove these people by force. The more you push them, the more they think it is a test of their faith.

Character mistake: In her speech outside the bank, Mary Lou Barebone mentions "the wireless" as one of the wonders of modern technology, which is the British term. A New Yorker in 1926 would use the Americanism "radio."
