Robocop 2 (1990)

Revealing mistake: When the baseball coach is exchanging fire with Lewis, he reacts to a close impact. As he does, his arms brush his cap, and the makeup for the bullet wound on the upper left side of his forehead is revealed. When the fatal shot is fired, his cap is down in position again.

Robocop (1987)

Revealing mistake: After Jones "introduces" ED-209 to Robocop, as he is descending the stairs, the top step can be seen through Robocop's head. This is because ED-209 is a stop-motion animation, and Robocop was matted into the scene.

Other mistake: After Indy shoots the driver of the truck that Marion is supposedly in, the camera looks at the driver's bloody hand falling limp. In the shot of the truck tipping over, you see the stunt driver working the wheel.

Hogan's Heroes (1965)

Everybody Loves a Snowman - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: As the sink with the fake tunnel is prepared, just before Newkirk goes over to set things up, you can see movement through a crack in the door. It's Schultz, Hochstetter, and Klink, waiting their cue to enter.

Movie Nut

Season 1 generally

Question: In Season 1, Episode 23 "Skin of Evil", Tasha Yar was killed. But in the three following episodes, in the opening credits, Denise Crosby (Lt. Tasha Yar) is still listed. Am I correct in thinking that the producers decided to use the original opening credits for the remaining three episodes of the season, and changed them after Gates McFadden left the series for Season Two?

Movie Nut

Answer: The producers would not change the credits so near the end of the season, nor was there any reason to. It would be expensive to redo the opening cast credits.

M*A*S*H (1972)

Good-Bye Radar (Part 2) - S8-E5

Other mistake: When Potter enters the Swamp, his rank insignia is placed wrongly, with the feet of the eagle pointing to the front of the collar. The feet should point toward the shoulder side of the collar, as they are the next time we see Potter.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When Dave and Mike enter the area where the cocoons are stored, you can tell that all the rows above the main floor area, with the exception of the second rows near the camera position, are all matte paintings.

Top Hat, White Tie and Bomb Sights - S1-E10

Audio problem: As Schultz is complaining about Klink, Hogan puts his hand over Schultz's mouth, and you start to hear the canned laughter. When the camera looks at Klink, the sound Schultz made with the canned laughter behind it is repeated.

While Gotham City Burns (2) - S1-E30
