Reptile Boy - S2-E5

Corrected entry: Why did the frat boys bother kidnapping a girl at least a week before the ceremony? They apparently don't care if the sacrifices are connected to each other and had no trouble attracting women to their frat house.

Phoenix

Correction: They only choose certain girls for Machida - although their criteria are never explicitly stated, the fact that Tom is desperate for Buffy to go suggests that they pick their victims carefully rather than just dragging in some random girl at the party. If they specifically wanted Callie for the sacrifice it would make sense to grab her the first chance they got, even if that meant holding her captive for a week.

Shay

Corrected entry: How does John Bender get back up into the ceiling from the library?

Correction: He could easily have gone up to the top floor of the library and piled up a couple of tables. The ceiling isn't that much higher than the top floor, and he is seen to be quite a good climber.

Shay

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: Buffy gets all the Potentials together and does another inspirational speech, telling them her plan to turn them all into Slayers. Chao-Ahn is there. This is the girl who doesn't speak English, so who in the Buffyverse is going to explain what was just said?

Correction: Given the amount of dictionaries we see lying round the house in 'Get It Done', we can assume that Chao-Ahn isn't the only Potential who doesn't speak English, but there is a way to communicate with them (albeit slow and time-consuming). It wouldn't be that hard to fill her and the rest of them in on the basics of the plan; just because we never saw it doesn't mean it never happened offscreen.

Shay

Corrected entry: Assuming that the guitar is actually a Strat, and not a Squirer, how would Pat be able to afford one with the money Joey gave him? Strats start at around $500, and in all the scenes where Joey give him more cash, it does not add up to that.

Correction: We don't see every occasion where Patrick gets money. Given that Joey is paying him per date, we can assume that if he and Kat are going out even for just a couple of weeks there are quite a few dates to be considered. Add in the large bonus he got for the Prom and whatever spare cash he may have had anyway and a Strat would easily be within his price range.

The Hole (2001)

Corrected entry: Men grow stubble about 3 days after they shave, but the 2 men were traped in the "hole" for 18 days. Don't you think that they would have a lot of facial hair by now?

Correction: It's possible they packed razors - they had been planning on spending the best part of three days in there and they wanted to look good for Liz and Frankie.

The Hole (2001)

Corrected entry: At the start we see Thora Birch walking through the woods, she has blood on her, but where does the blood come from, because when she got out of the hole she didn't have any on her.

Correction: She may have cut herself any time between climbing out of the hole and reaching the road. She would have been dizzy and stumbling a lot, and there would be plenty of things in the woods she may have cut herself on.

The Matrix (1999)

Corrected entry: Exactly how did Cypher get into the Matrix to make his deal with Agent Smith? There is no way Cypher could have plugged the cable into the back of his head while being strapped into the chair, and also reached behind the chair to press the load button on the computer.

Correction: In the previous scene, when Neo disturbs Cypher and he switches off the montiors, the directors have stated he was setting up an automated system to jack him into and out of the Matrix without an operator.

The Initiative - S4-E7

Corrected entry: Spike must have had his chip implanted while he was unconcious. If so, how did he attack the Initiative scientists without any pain when he tried to escape? You could argue that they programmed him to be capable of violence within the Initiative only, but why would super smart scientists program an evil being to be able to escape at the first opportunity?

Phoebe

Correction: They only activated his chip after his escape from the Initiative.

Charmed (1998)

Show generally

Corrected entry: Fair enough, Paige didn't get her witchly powers until she met her sisters and they vanquished Shax together. But not all of her powers are rooted in witchcraft - her orbing, at least, is rooted 100% in her whitelighter heritage. We saw that she orbed in the crash that killed her adopted parents - so why did it take her, conveniently, 21 years to find out she could orb?

Phoebe

Correction: Remember that at first Paige could only orb instinctively to escape from danger, and how often does that happen in everyday life? The car crash and the first time she used her powers to escape Shax were probably the only times she had ever used her power. Her later ability to orb anywhere, anytime, came from months of training.

Shay

Corrected entry: If the Keymaker is "meant" for all intents and purposes for deletion, and if "The One" is a never ending circle, ALWAYS meant to go to the source - how is The One supposed to get to the Source without the Keymaker? The deletion of the Keymaker would end the cycle, causing the machines to be left without human power, or would allow Zion to grow out of control.

Phoebe

Correction: The very act of targeting the Keymaker for deletion is what triggers the series of events we see in the film from the part at the Frenchman's house onwards. The Keymaker is targeted, but is never intended to be deleted until he has served his true purpose, to deliver Neo to the Architect.

Shay

Corrected entry: When the lottery winner gets his hand and watch stuck in the disposal, he finally pulls out his hand without the watch. Yet when he's climbing down the fire escape, he's wearing it again.

Correction: It was his ring he dropped down the waste grinder, not his watch. He had the watch on the whole time.

Father Ted (1995)

Grant Unto Him Eternal Rest - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When Father Jack is in the coffin on the table during the scene where all the other priests are there, you get a closeup of Jack as someone leans over him. Watch carefully and you'll see that he is breathing.

Correction: Jack was still alive at this point (he comes out of his detergent-induced coma at the end of the episode) so of course he was still breathing.

Shay

Show generally

Corrected entry: Buffy died in the first season (but comes back to life of course) and Kendra gets called to take her place technically becoming the chosen one. When Kendra dies, Faith come into the picture and becomes the chosen one. So in fact there are two chosen slayers now, Buffy and Faith. But in the last season the First are out only to get Buffy. They should be going after Faith as well seeing that both Faith and Buffy are the chosen slayers at this point.

Correction: They did try to kill Faith - in the Angel episode 'Salvage' Faith is attacked by an assassin working for the First. She and Willow even discuss it at the start of the Buffy episode 'Dirty Girls'.

Shay

Chosen - S7-E22

Corrected entry: In the season 7 finale "Chosen" Faith says to Buffy "You have to live like a person now, you're not the one and only chosen any more." Technically, Buffy hasn't been the one and only chosen since she died at the end of season 1. Though we did not see it, at that very second Kendra was called.

Correction: Maybe Buffy hasn't been the only Slayer, but she's always conisdered herself to be the main Slayer (referring to Kendra as 'The Rookie' and talking down to Faith). Also, for the last 4 years she has technically been the only active Slayer since Faith was in a coma, then in prison.

Shay

Corrected entry: Dr. Joley calls George at Nina's apartment to invite him for a weekend getaway, and then asks George whether he's still living with Nina.

Correction: He actually says that he's surprised that George is still living there, suggesting he rang Nina's not expecting to find him but to ask Nina for his new number.

Goldeneye (1995)

Corrected entry: When Bond enters the Soviet base at the start of the film you see 006 Trevelyan in the shadows pointing a gun at Bond and shouting in Russian. Bond then replies "I'm alone." Trevelyan then steps out of the shadows and greets Bond. If this were real then he would have killed Bond right there and not have to bother about the facade of being captured by Ourumov. MI6 would probably presume both men are dead and there would be no Bond to stop Trevelyan's plan. The only reason Trevelyan doesn't kill him there is because it doesn't fit the idea of the film (Bond always wins in the end.)

Correction: Actually, if both agents mysteriously disappeared then Trevelyan might be suspected, but if Bond "sees" him being shot then they will definately believe he's dead. Also, Trevelyan doesn't start out wanting Bond dead, they're old friends. In St. Petersburg he tries to convince him to work with him.

Shay

Corrected entry: When Finch and Kevin open the linen closet door and see Stifler having sex with Jim's grandmother, Stifler says "Close the door." Finch then replies, "Okay Jim." Clearly he should had said, "Okay Stifler".

Correction: He clearly said "OK then", not "OK Jim".

Shay

Crush - S5-E14

Corrected entry: In season five's "Crush" episode, during the last scene with Spike and Buffy, the back of Spike's head is noticibly exposed to sunlight.

Correction: The last scene of Crush takes place at night. The light on Spike's head is Buffy's porch light reflecting on his peroxide.

The Ring (2002)

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film when they discover the well under cottage 12 they drop a stone down the well. They listen for about 10 seconds and do not hear the splash suggesting that the well is really deep. When the woman falls down the well then looks up to see the bloke shouting to her, the well is only about 30 feet deep.

Correction: Listen more closely, there's a distinct splash after a few seconds.

The Ring (2002)

Corrected entry: In the end of the movie you see the well that Anna Morgan throws Samara in. This well is on the horse ranch, on the island. Yet, the well underneath Shelter Mountain Inn at Cabin 12 is a long way from there as is indicated by the fact it takes them one day to get from the island to Cabin 12. Am I just missing something here or is that a serious loop hole?

Correction: The well isn't on Anna's horse ranch, it's a vacation spot for the Morgans.
