Factual error: Atropine is on two occasions in the movie stated to offer some kind of protection against corrosive gasses. First, against the nerve agent/gas Goodspeed encounters in the beginning of the movie, which is corrosive enough to eat through a protective suit. Secondly, near the end of the movie against the cloud of VX gas; here Goodspeed injects Atropine into his heart and survives without a scratch even though it is stated that VX will melt your skin. While Atropine is used to counter the effect of nerve agents, Atropine (or any other drug invented by man) wouldn't do anything against a gas that can eat through a protective suit or dissolve skin. In this case the muscle contractions created by the nerve agent would be the least of your worries.

Factual error: VX is a real nerve agent and it is considered one of the most deadly. But VX does not melt away your skin. In reality, VX gas causes involuntary muscle contractions that result in death by asphyxiation. Apparently this wasn't dramatic enough for Hollywood. It's also amber, not green.

Continuity mistake: In one of the first shots at the Freedom Day celebration in front of the Lincoln Memorial, we see a banner, with the text "Freedom Day - Express yourself. I hate my job.", suspended between to poles. Some of the banner can also be seen during the first part of Nixon's speech. But when it gets time to lower "Old Freebie" (the flag) the banner has disappeared and the flag is lowered into the position where the banner hung before. And the banner was tied to the two poles so they can't have raised it. (00:02:20 - 00:04:35)

Continuity mistake: On board the Nimbus where Zapp asks for the activation codes for the global defense network, it immediately after cuts to a shot of Kif Saying "Aye Aye sir". In the background of the shot sit two ship crew members, the brown haired one on the left disappears in the following shot. (00:13:50)

Continuity mistake: At the Cryogenic facility, right where Fry shouts "Pizza delivery for..." the desk is positioned almost parallel to the window, but when Fry sits down at the desk, its positioned perpendicular to the window. And Fry can't have moved the desk because in both shots the freezing chamber is placed behind it so he would have had to move that as well. (00:01:20)

I'm looking for a TV show I watched as a kid. The show was about a group of kids/teens who found a highly intelligent super computer that helped them carry out missions to save the world etc, it was of course a secret that the kids had the super computer. It was a kind of hacker/agent crossover show. I've narrowed it down to that the show must have been from somewhere between the late eighties to mid nineties. I know this description is very vague but I'm hoping someone out there knows what I'm talking about.

Continuity mistake: When Gunter is trying to figure out where the hat goes, the banana disappears and reappears between shots. When Gunter finally figures out the hat goes on the head the banana is nowhere to be seen, yet when he needs it to do some calculations the banana is on the ground right next to him.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Fry and the professor is trying to make Gunter choose between the banana and the hat, the distance between Fry, the professor, and Leela changes noticeably between shots. First Fry and the professor are wide apart with Leela behind Fry. Then after Leela hears the robot-house's boat approaching, they're all suddenly down by the lake standing next to each other.
