Die Another Day (2002)

Trivia: During the fight with Miranda Frost, Jinx runs up a wall and jumps off to land behind her; Michelle Yeoh does the exact same move in "Tomorrow Never Dies".

Die Another Day (2002)

Question: What's the significance, if any, of Miranda Frost being stabbed through "The Art Of War"?

Shay

Chosen answer: Frost is proud of her martial skills and Sun Tzu's Art of War is considered to be one of the classic texts on warfare, but that's about as far as it goes.

Angel (1999)

Hell Bound - S5-E4

Trivia: Angel leaves the Reaper locked in a metal cage as the camera pans slowly back so we can only see his eyes - almost exactly the same shot as when Connor left Angel trapped in the metal coffin at the end of "Tomorrow". They even say the same thing - "You get to live. Forever". Like father, like son.

Get It Done - S7-E15

Plot hole: When Dawn and Buffy discover Chloe hanging in the bathroom, Dawn gives a little gasp but nothing more. But, seconds later, some Potentials run from across the hall saying "What is it? We heard -" before they see Chloe. While it suits the next scene to have them there, there wouldn't have been any sounds loud enough for them to have heard from across the hall through a closed door.

Charmed (1998)

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Prue runs into Susan Trudeau at the restaurant, she asks if she's Andy's sister, only to find she's his ex-wife. But Prue knew Andy all through high school - she would have known he didn't have a sister. (00:12:25)

Shay

Plot hole: What exactly was Laurie Strode's plan in the teaser, when she strung Michael up over the edge of the roof. From the way she starts cutting the rope it looks like she plans to drop him, but she's seen him survive a 2-storey fall before, in the original Halloween, not to mention multiple stab wounds in H20. A fall off the roof into bushes would barely phase Michael.

Shay

Consequences - S3-E15

Other mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley he says "So you heard the man scream about what time?", but Finch didn't scream as he died.

Shay

Enemies - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: Watch Xander's right leg as Angelus punches him onto the sidewalk - it bends the wrong way at the knee and flies up to his waist, showing that it's a dummy.

Shay

Enemies - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: After Faith brings Angelus back, when she goes to punch him and he blocks, the stuntman switch is very obvious - he's noticeably taller, has different hair and doesn't even seem to be wearing any vampire make-up.

Shay

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley, he mentions that the murder took place "last night". In "Bad Girls", we see Buffy visiting Faith the day after the murder, and that night is presumably when she has the dream about drowning, so by the time the detective is asking this question it is actually two nights after the murder, not one.

Shay

The Zeppo - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: In the basement scene, when Jack and Xander face off over the ticking bomb, the number of beeps is hugely disproportionate to the seconds ticking down.

Shay

Beauty And The Beasts - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: In the teaser of "Beauty And The Beasts", when Jeff is running through the woods, you can see in the top left corner of several shots a lamp being used to light the scene.

Shay

Halloween - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Buffy and Willow find the picture of the noblewoman in the Watcher's Diaries, Buffy asks "Who is she?" and Willow replies "It doesn't say", but if you watch closely you can see that during the brief shot of the book her name is visible next to her picture.

Shay

Halloween - S2-E6

Plot hole: Giles tells Willow to leave him while he extracts information from Ethan on how to break the costume spell. By the time Giles smashes the statue Willow has already found the others, who had left the house where she thought they were and are hiding in a completely different area of the town. No matter how long it took Giles to beat the information out of Ethan, there is no way Willow could have gotten back to the house, realised they were gone and tracked them down before the spell was broken. As a ghost, it is possible she could have happened across them even though they were hiding, but seems unlikely.

The Simpsons (1989)

Bart the General - S1-E5

Factual error: When Bart declares war on Nelson, Herman uses the declaration from the Franco-Prussian war and puts "Bart" in place of "Otto Von Bismarck". The thing is, Bismarck didn't declare the Franco-Prussian War, Napoleon III of France did. A small error, maybe, but something that a war buff like Herman should know.

Mutant X (2001)

Where Evil Dwells - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Andrea jumps off the roof at the end of "Where Evil Dwells", season 3, she is falling face down for the first two shots, then when it switches to a third shot she is falling face up.

Angel (1999)

Show generally

Question: In the UK at the moment (June 2004) Sky 1 are running a series of ads for their "Best of Angel" vote - does anyone know what that song playing in the background is?

Shay

Chosen answer: "Vampire Love" by Ash from their new album "Meltdown".

Mutant X (2001)

Crime of the New Century - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the fight scene at the start of the episode, Jesse knocks one of the GS agents into the water - in subsequent shots he has disappeared.

Shay

Mutant X (2001)

The Shock of the New (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode, Emma tells Brennan that her powers don't work if she's stressed. The first time they met, earlier in this episode, she is running from the GS agents and very panicked and stressed, yet she easily uses her powers to ask for his help.

Will & Grace (1998)

Sex, Losers and Videotape - S5-E20

Continuity mistake: When Jack leaves his class to go talk to Grace, they are all sitting. As the angle changes we can see through the glass panel that they are all standing and talking to each other literally one second later.
