Moose

Plot hole: Jay is thrown out of the hotel pool for throwing a young boy into the pool, and Will is thrown out for insulting the girl in a wheelchair. At this time, Simon was in the cafe, nowhere near the other boys and not involved in any of these. So why would he be thrown out, too? How would the employee who grabs him even know they were together?

Red Dwarf (1988)

Backwards - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rimmer stands up from underneath the table, just before he says, "Thanks for your support" to Lister, listen very carefully and you can hear the stunt director saying "Action!" backwards. This shot was the splice point between the reversed and the regular footage. (I know this mistake is listed as being in the 'backwards version' on the DVD, but it is in the regular broadcast version too - you just have to listen harder for it.)

Mr. Bean (1989)

Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Mr Bean finds Hubert's hat lying on his shelf beside the clock, he puts it in front of the clock to cover the clock up. But when Hubert's silhouette is seen at the end of the show, it shows him lifting his hat from the position it was originally in - beside the clock.

Episode 6 - S1-E6

Question: When Marvin is left behind in the Disaster Area ship as the others teleport away, he says, "I'm so intelligent I've probably got time to go through the five." before he is cut off. Is there anything in the books or rest of the series which suggests what we was about to say?

Moose Premium member

Chosen answer: That seems to be an error in the subtitling of the episode. What Marvin actually says is: "I may just be a menial robot, but I'm far too intelligent to expect to think of me for a moment... far too intelligent..."

Transformers (2007)

Question: When the people in the military base channel the All Spark to create a Transformer, it is evil and tries to shoot them; and the Transformers that Sam creates from machines in the city by accident also appear to attack the humans around them. If the All Spark can only create evil Transformers then where did the good ones come from?

Moose Premium member

Chosen answer: I don't think we have enough information to say that it only creates evil transformers. I think it would be more accurate to say that it creates transformers that ACT bad, which could be because they don't know the difference yet. There is a difference between amoral and immoral. Amoral creatures don't know the difference and could then do a lot of bad things in their excitement for being created. Immoral creatures do bad things because they know they're bad. Alternatively the transformers are actually evil because they're interacting with earth technology, all of which was derived from Megatron who's very much evil already.

Um Jammer Lammy

Factual error: Paul Chuck talks a lot about how good Lammy's guitar is going to be, because of the wood they make it out of. However since it is an electric guitar the shape and material of the body would not actually make any difference to the sound.

Peasant's Quest

Continuity mistake: At the end of this game, Trogdor announces that he's invincible, and demonstrates that he is at least immune to swords; but in the actual game "Trogdor" he is easily killed with a sword.

Puzzle Quest

Plot hole: The companion character Princess Serephine can charm good characters, on the grounds that they would not strike a lady; however, if the player character is female, the same enemies have no trouble striking her!

The Curse Of Mr. Bean - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: When Irma screams at seeing Mr Bean with his jumper pulled over his head, all of the other cinema patrons jump with shock - except for the woman directly behind the two of them, on the right of the screen. She just grins and laughs, forgetting that her character shouldn't be in on the joke.

Worldwide Recorder Concert - S3-E17

Plot hole: When Cartman writes the "brown noise" onto the score for the recorder contest, the note he writes is an ordinary E flat note. If E flat was the brown noise, wouldn't it have already been discovered years before?

Alan Attraction - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Alan serenades Jill, near the end of the song, the guitar player removes his hand from his guitar briefly but the guitar part continues to play (it's being synthesised as part of the keyboard's rhythm track). (00:19:10)

Watership Alan - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: After the cow is dropped on Alan's boat, there is a quick scramble of shots. One of the shots shows the farmers who just dropped the cow. However, this camera shot shows them (and the bridge) as being a lot further away than they actually could be having dropped the cow only a few seconds earlier, especially given that the boat is moving slowly and appears to stop when the cow is dropped. (00:27:00)

Volcano - S1-E2

Deliberate mistake: When the boys are hunting in the forest, then they start to crawl after the rabbit, however, the background behind them is static as if they were crawling in place.
