Corrected entry: This is the only completed episode in which Grandad doesn't appear during the life of Lennard Pierce.

mirtom

Correction: Not sure what you mean. Grandad is in this episode.

Time Enough at Last - S1-E8

Corrected entry: Right after Bemis's glasses break, he leans down to pick them up. Instead, he first opens the book. When he does that, you can see that the pages are completely blank and that there is absolutely nothing printed on them.

mirtom

Correction: There are many words printed on the pages of the book he opens after his glasses break.

Can I Say Something, Please? - S5-E17

Corrected entry: When Cliff and Clair are talking about Rudy and their rules and mentions the other children, Clair said that Sondra dropped out of law school. But at this point in the series, she has not yet attended law school.

mirtom

Correction: While she technically did not go to law school she decided not to go just after she graduated from Princeton and was to start law school. Clair could have seen it as dropping out of law school.

The Hitch-Hiker - S1-E16

Corrected entry: Throughout whole episode, Nan's car doesn't have rear-view mirror. But in the very last scene, when she needs to see Hitch-Hiker in back seat, she uses rear-view mirror.

mirtom

Correction: Rather than using a rear-view mirror, she pulls down the visor and sees him in a mirror attached to its top side.

Corrected entry: Taylor tells Freeling's that only spirit of entire family can save Carol Anne, but, in the end, she is not saved by whole family because Dana is not there.

mirtom

Correction: He never says that only the whole family can save her. He says "When you find Carol Ann, band together, that will prevent you from crossing over to infinity. The light of the family can defeat him."

In-Laws - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Ray sneaks into the room he is carrying his blazer and shoes in his hands. After Debra turns on the light and walks over to the dresser, the camera pans back to Ray and he is empty-handed for the rest of the scene.

mirtom

Correction: Ray put his pants and shoes on the chair while the camera is on Debra. There is no error.

Denise: The Saga Continues - S6-E1

Corrected entry: While getting ready for bed, Clair complains to Cliff that she had to cut Olivia's food behind Denise's back during dinner; but in the previous scene, Cliff offers to take Clair out to dinner alone because there are too many kids in the house (Theo, Vanessa, and Rudy have all their friends over), so how can Clair cut Olivia's food if she was out to dinner with Cliff?

mirtom

Correction: As you stated, Cliff offers to take her out to dinner, but we never hear her accept the offer, nor do we see them out to dinner alone. And, even if they did go out to dinner alone, Clair could still have cut Olivia's food during Olivia's dinner before or after going out.

Hillman - S3-E25

Corrected entry: Denise takes a puppy calendar off the wall and covers her sexy man calendar with it so her mom won't see. When her mom comes in her room, you can still see the puppy calendar on the wall that Denise took it from. When they leave the room, the puppy calendar is now covering the man calendar again.

mirtom

Correction: Denise puts the puppy calendar over the man calendar before her mom comes in. It stayed there the whole time, it never reappeared in it's original place.

Full House (1987)

On the Road Again - S8-E7

Corrected entry: Becky reminds Jesse that her mother initially wasn't happy when she started dating Jesse, but that doesn't seem quite right. First of all, Becky's parents didn't even meet Jesse until the night before their wedding in Season 4, and when they did, Becky's mother was delighted with him. If either parent had a problem with Jesse, it was Becky's father, so this comment from Becky doesn't make sense.

mirtom

Correction: There is no mistake here. Parents, especially mothers, don't have to meet the boyfriend face-to-face before disliking him. In Becky's case, there was a lot not to like about Jesse. But once they saw how happy Becky was and finally met Jesse (like in so many real-life instances), they grew to like him.

Play It Again, Vanessa - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Cliff and Theo are playing chess, Theo never starts the clock to start his turn, he just moves and stops the clock.

mirtom

Correction: There is no mistake in this scene - both Cliff and Theo used the chess clock correctly. It's not Theo's job to start the clock before his turn, his clock started when Cliff stopped his. (And the scene starts in the middle of the game).

The Shower - S3-E19

Corrected entry: In the scene in which Clair and Cliff are talking in the kitchen and Clair has her back turned to Cliff at the sink, the camera goes from Clair and the flowers - which are still wrapped in paper - cuts briefly to Cliff, and then back to Clair, who is now facing him with the flowers all perfectly arranged in water in the vase behind her.

mirtom

Correction: That's because throughout the whole scene you can see her unwrap the flowers and move them into the vase. There is no mistake.

The Locker Room - S4-E12

Corrected entry: When Lionel comes in, we don't see him hanging any jacket, but when he goes out, he grabs one and puts it on.

mirtom

Correction: When Lionel comes in, he's wearing his jacket and walks to the coat rack while he and Theo are talking. You see him start to take off the jacket and when the camera cuts to Theo, he has plenty of time to finish removing it and put it on the coat rack. When the camera cuts back to Lionel, he's walking away from the coat rack and you see his jacket hung up on it.

Rudy's All-Nighter - S5-E3

Corrected entry: When Cliff calls Caroline's father, Cliff simply picks up the phone and starts talking to her father without dialing any numbers.

mirtom

Correction: This is wrong. After Cliff picks up the phone, you see him pushing the buttons on the telephone before talking to Caroline's father.

Father's Day - S1-E13

Corrected entry: Cliff says in the beginning that he has the day off, but when the kids go shopping it shows him at work in his office.

mirtom

Correction: Watch the episode again. Cliff says he's enjoying his "morning off", not day. He still had to go into work. Since the kids went shopping after school, Cliff was at work in the late afternoon.

Mr. Denton on Doomsday - S1-E3

Corrected entry: TV antennas can be spotted in the distance in several shots. They didn't exist at the time of the Wild West.

mirtom

Correction: There are no TV antennas to be seen in any shot. While there may be metal structures in some background shots, none resemble TV antennas.

Period of Adjustment - S7-E4

Corrected entry: After Pam is introduced to the girls, Clair leaves Pam alone in the living room. She later returns with three glasses of apple juice. How did Clair know that Cliff had entered the room while she was gone?

mirtom

Correction: Because the living room is right next to the kitchen and Cliff's voice carries so she knew he was there talking to Pam. And she had been in there long enough that even if she prepared just 2 glasses, she had time to get a 3rd glass prepared.

Cliff in Love - S2-E4

Corrected entry: When Darryl arrives for the date, Cliff sends Theo upstairs to get Sondra, but Theo had just left Sondra in the kitchen. Why didn't he go back into the kitchen if he knew that's where she was?

mirtom

Correction: Because Cliff had come downstairs after Theo left the kitchen. Theo was watching TV long enough for Sondra to go back upstairs where Cliff would have seen/heard her.

A Shirt Story - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When asked about the $95 Theo said that if he lived to be 90 years old that would be like a dollar a year. In this episode Theo is 14 years old, as stated by Cliff. If Theo wanted to equate his age to the value of the shirt he would need to live to 109 years old.

mirtom

Correction: The character is shown to be dumb and bad in math obviously. But also, he does say "like", showing he's speaking approximately.

Wild Kingdom - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Randy has to tell Tim his fortune a second time by pulling the fourth card again, he is showing Tim the third card he took.

mirtom

Correction: This is a character mistake at best, Randy is trying to torment Tim and since the trick involves searching for that particular ace any mistake in shuffling would mean having to improvise to grab the right card.

Bad Dreams - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Cliff dials the phone number to Vanessa's friend, it's obvious that he dialed "3" instead of "2", and still got the right number.

mirtom

Correction: Vanessa said the number "3" and when Cliff dials it he does in fact press "3" to call her bluff and call her friend.
