Show generally

New this month Question: Not sure if there's an answer, just speculation, or a plot hole. As I understand it, the premise of time travel in the show is the Legends can't go back to a time they've already been to because then time would fold in on itself, etc. For example, the 3 get stranded in 1958, picked up in 1960, but the rest of the Legends can't try again by just going back to 1958. But then it's revealed that Chronos was Rory all along, so how is Chronos/Rory able to time travel back to a time Rory has already been to without doing any real damage to time? And if the idea is, well no-one knew Chronos was Rory, so they didn't know they were interacting with a time traveling version of themselves (or what ever the reason), then all the Legends have to do is disguise themselves to interact in the same time.

Baxter & Sons - S1-E18

Tree of Strife - S1-E16

New this month Continuity mistake: The clip of Mandy meeting Kim K the news shows is different than what we originally saw. For example, originally Mandy yells "I'm going to give Kim Kardashian a hug. I rule!" But on the news it's "I'm going to give Kim Kardashian a hug, you guys."

Aquaman (2018)

Trivia: On the coffee table is the H.P. Lovecraft book, "The Dunwich Horror." In it, one of the main characters travels to the town of Arkham, a reoccurring town in Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, which is where DC Comics got the name for Arkham Asylum. In some versions of the Aquaman comics, Black Manta was an orphan at Arkham Asylum.

Continuity mistake: When English gets in the driver's ed car, there's a cell phone on the console when he looks at the pedals on his side. When he steps on the gas, you see part of the console and now there's some sort of magazine that wasn't there before.

Dexter (2006)

Dirty Harry - S4-E5

Question: In some episodes they mention an officer's romantic relationships can be used by attorneys to somehow discredit the officer and get the suspect off. In this episode specifically, Deputy Chief Matthews says the department can't risk a defense attorney turning Lt. LaGuerta and Sgt. Batista's romantic involvement a courtroom sideshow every time they work a case together (and thus Batista needs to be transferred out of Homicide). But why would it matter? Is this just "Hollywood" exaggeration for plot purposes? Wouldn't the prosecution object based on relevance if the defense attorney tried to bring this up, especially since Lt. Guerta disclosed the relationship through the proper channels? Or is Matthews lying for an ulterior motive.

About Last Night - S3-E9

Question: Dexter tests the blood on Miguel's shirt, to see if it's Freebo's. It looks like he's just using a DNA sequencer and the blood result comes back "bovine." Can a DNA sequencer differentiate which species the blood came from like that? Or perhaps he was using a different type of blood analysis machine? Is there an analysis machine that's capable of that? I thought the way to test if blood is human or not, "anti-human serum" is mixed with the blood to see if it will clot. So wouldn't the only way to tell it was bovine blood is to inject it with "anti-bovine serum"?

Bishop73

New this week Answer: The short answer is yes, it could. but, it would have to be set up to analyze results to differentiate species. The sequencer will report the base pairs for any properly prepared sample, but interpreting the results is a software package. The software is available, but I would think it unlikely that an analysis package used in a forensics lab would have the capability to be so specific. More likely it would report "Non Human Sequences Found."
