Predator 2 (1990)

Deliberate mistake: Whenever the Predator is in camouflage, it does not have its signature dreadlocks. This is confirmed in the DVD extras as being too difficult to include them when creating the visual effects.

Witch's Lament - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lynette asks Jane to not steal Tom from her, the door behind Lynette goes from being open ajar to fully closed between shots.

Burke and Hare (2010)

Factual error: Near the end of the movie there is a high shot of Market Square, which is supposed to be below Edinburgh Castle as established during the opening scene of the movie. However the view looks almost identical to the Royal Mile which runs from the Castle itself down to Holyrood Palace. You can even see the spire from St Giles Cathedral in the background, which is on the Royal Mile.

Burke and Hare (2010)

Continuity mistake: In the "multiple dissection" scene Doctor Knox uncovers each of the four dead bodies one at a time. But, following a quick edit to the applauding students, in a closer shot one of the bodies is covered up again.

Burke and Hare (2010)

Other mistake: When Burke & Hare chop down the tree to stop the coach, they hit the tree with their axes at chest height. When the coach approaches they have hardly made a dent in the tree and when they push to tip the tree over, it doesn't break at chest height, but the entire tree falls, arguably still fully intact.

Burke and Hare (2010)

Factual error: Greyfriars Bobby wasn't born until the mid 1850s. Burke and Hare were robbing graves and murdering twenty-five years earlier.

The Thing (2011)

Deliberate mistake: Right at the end of the film, the two Norwegians (Lars and Matias) are seen chasing after Lars' dog in a helicopter. Notice how their clothing and the interior of the helicopter are not the same as they looked in the original 1982 film by John Carpenter. It's supposed to be the same event.

Burke and Hare (2010)

Factual error: On the opening shot of Edinburgh Castle, you can see the spire of The Hub to the left of the screen. The film takes place in 1828 but The Hub was not built until 1845.

Scream 4 (2011)

Continuity mistake: Right before Sidney's aunt Kate comes back with her shopping, there is a yellow teapot on top of a chopping board on the kitchen counter in front of Sidney. She opens the door to find Kate. But when she comes back into the kitchen, the yellow teapot has suddenly moved about a foot away from the chopping board. (01:05:30 - 01:06:40)

General questions

There was a cartoon, I don't remember what channel, that was on during the 90s (I think) about a detective or an inspector who's last name was Watermelon. I cannot for the life of me remember what the show was called. I've Googled every keyword I can think of but I can't find it.

Chosen answer: Walter Melon was a 1998 animated TV show, adapted from the Franco-Belgian comic and television series Achille Talon. The show aired in the United States on the Fox Family Channel during 1998 and 1999. Walter Melon and his assistant Bitterbug run a company as "heroes for hire. Whenever superheroes get in trouble, get sick, or fall victim to their villains' latest scheme, Melon and Bitterbug (Lefuneste) take their places temporarily.

Burke and Hare (2010)

Factual error: Two hangings are shown in the film, in the style of a "long drop" designed to break the neck and cause instant death. This style was first introduced in the 1870's by William Marwood as a more humane approach. Before then, and certainly in 1828-1829 when the film was set, the victim was simply suspended by a rope around the neck, and choked to death by suffocation.

Visible crew/equipment: When Anne and Tyler break into the morgue, the shadow of the camera can be seen on the wall outside.
