Biggles (1986)

Other mistake: One of the taglines for this film was "Meet Jim Ferguson. He lived a daring double-life with one foot in the 20th century and the other in World War I." World War One was fought in the 20th century.

Black Dynamite (2009)

Question: I'm pretty sure I've heard Black Dynamite's line about "When your so-called Revolution starts, you call me and I'll be right down in front showing you how it's done." in another Blaxploitation movie but can't quite place it. Don't think it's Super Fly or Dolemite. Anyone know?

Galavant (2015)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Galavant is talking to Isabella in the tavern, the turkey leg that he's eating is almost a full leg of meat. When it cuts to the shot over Galavant's shoulder as Sid says "When he tells me to fetch, those are my favorite moments," all the meat is gone down to the bone. In the next shot, the leg is mostly uneaten again.

Galavant (2015)

Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: When King Richard asks the chef if there's lemon in his tea, he replies "Yes, my king. Some 'and-squeezed lemons." The closed-captioning says "Some unsqueezed lemons."

Sherlock (2010)

Show generally

Question: Which episode contains the line "I'm not insulting you, I'm describing you?" Google searches turn up nothing but the quote itself, and no further information on the episode or the rest of the scene. If anyone knows the line that led up to it, that would be even better.

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Chosen answer: That line of dialogue has never actually been spoken in any of the Sherlock episodes, during seasons 1-4. However, that line is written in someone's fan-fiction story online, where it's said by Sherlock and directed at Anderson.

General questions

Question: Recalling an episode of a courtroom drama, but not sure which one. (It could have been Law and Order, LA Law, or any of a few others.) A couple are on trial because their baby died a crib-death, but there was enough evidence of foul play to charge them with murder. Their defense attorney gets them found innocent, and then the last scene is him getting into the elevator with the couple to leave the courthouse and in the last moment, he sees them holding hands and realises they did it. Anyone know it?

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Chosen answer: It was from L.A. Law, season 4, episode: "Justice Swerved." The couple killed their severely handicapped baby because they didn't want the financial and emotional burden of raising it. The jury was unable to find either one guilty. At the end, in the elevator, Victor Sifuentes is standing behind the couple. He looks down and sees them discretely clasping each other's hand and realises they are guilty and were exonerated with his help. This episode is on YouTube.

Family Guy (1999)

Untitled Griffin Family History - S4-E27

Character mistake: When the family is about to drown in the panic room and start arguing with Peter about not liking "The Godfather," Chris starts listing off the great actors in it. "Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, I mean, you've never seen...ROBERT DUVALL!" Robert DeNiro is in "The Godfather Part II," but not in the first one.

Futurama (1999)

A Farewell to Arms - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When everyone is being scanned by the machine that determines who stays on Earth and who gets evacuated, the machine approves Amy, saying that they were in the same sorority and they do a "Sigma Beta" dance. In the first episode, Amy says that her sorority is Kappa Kappa Wong.

Dr. No (1962)

Trivia: Ian Fleming didn't like the casting choice of Sean Connery, saying he was "too thuggish" to be Bond. After seeing the film, Fleming liked him enough that he went back and ret-conned Bond's biography to make him Scottish.

Community (2009)

Advanced Documentary Filmmaking - S4-E6

Trivia: When Chang and Jeff are discussing his Changnesia, Chang says his short-term memory is getting better and rolls up his sleeve to read the words "side-effect" that he's written on the inside of his arm. On the side of his arm that's facing the camera, he's written a reminder to "Rent Memento."

Private Charles Lamb - S3-E14

Trivia: When Frank demands the Greek soldier's name and serial number, he gives Frank the number in Greek numerals. It translates to 2688125.

94 Meetings - S2-E21

Plot hole: April tells Ron that she's always known that he's Duke Silver because her mom has all his albums. So why didn't her mom freak out when Duke Silver appeared on her doorstep or, if she somehow didn't realize that Ron is Duke, even mention the resemblance?

Dead Island

Trivia: At the beginning of the game, when you leave your hotel room, if instead of turning right and going down the hall toward the elevators, you turn left and go into the room at the end of the hall, you'll find the bodies of the couple from the famous Backwards trailer. (This also means that the scene in the trailer happened right outside your door and you were so drunk/drugged that you slept right through it).

Safety in New York (or, Bertie Sets Sail) - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Tuppy goes to turn off the burglar alarm for Wooster, it's behind a hidden panel with a sign saying "Alarm Switch" above the panel. Why bother putting the switch behind a concealed panel if you're then going to label it? (Unless you're doing it for a viewing audience).

Batman (1966)

The Pharaoh's in a Rut (2) - S1-E28

Revealing mistake: When Bruce Wayne is strapped to the stretcher hurtling toward the cliff, after he breaks through the "300 Ft. Drop" sign, we cut to a different angle where the wire pulling the stretcher is visible.

Batman (1966)

The Ring of Wax (1) - S1-E23

Factual error: When Bruce, Dick, and Aunt Harriet are looking at the globe, Bruce corrects Dick's mistake about Lima being the capitol of Ecuador and says "No, as you can see, I was right. It's the capitol of Peru." and points to the globe to show him. Based on the position of Europe facing the camera, he's actually pointing to somewhere in northern Canada.

Honoria Glossop Turns Up (or, Bridegroom Wanted!) - S4-E3

Factual error: Sir Roderick has moved his psychiatric clinic to New York because the BMA wouldn't approve of his methods. Although we don't get exact dates for the episodes, since prohibition was in effect in the last episode and Puttin' On The Ritz came out in 1929, we can presume it's the late 20s/early 30s. The AMA wouldn't recognize psychiatry as legitimate medicine until the 1940s. Sir Roderick wouldn't have had any better luck in America.

General questions

Question: Don't remember if this was a movie or TV show I saw, but I remember the husband is some kind of liberal lawyer scared of the fall of society. He has a hidden gun safe in his home office and his wife finds out about it, and forces him to choose between his family and his guns.

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Chosen answer: It was an episode of House, MD from season 8 called "Perils of Paranoia".

Captain Defenestrator Premium member

Chosen answer: Strawberry Red for "Shaun of the Dead", Original Blue for "Hot Fuzz", Green Mint Choc Chip for "The World's End".
