Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Show generally

Other mistake: In several episodes throughout the series, SG-1 is coming through a planet's Stargate but there's no sign of a MALP, even when it should be in the shot. SGC wouldn't send a team through without sending a MALP first (not only to check for a DHD, but survey the land, check for habitability, etc). And if the idea is "well, maybe they have a recovery unit go fetch it before SG-1 goes through", then why would the MALP be present in all the other episodes?

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk is the Best Man - S8-E13

Character mistake: At the end, after Stephanie fired the gun, Captain Stottlemeyer shows her the gun's magazine but calls it a "clip." A police captain like Leland would know the difference between a clip and a magazine and would use the right word.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk is the Best Man - S8-E13

Character mistake: When Stephanie leaves Stottlemeyer's office (after he tells her to have TK call him), we see her walk out the door. When the shot changes to Monk, you can see Stephanie in the reflection on the TV walking out of the office again.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Dog - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: When Monk takes the dog to the park, they're standing on the curb by the grass when he goes to take the leash off. After he says "get ready", the shot changes and they're not by the curb anymore. They're back on in the next shot.

Batman: Year One (2011)

Other mistake: At the beginning, the arrival board has the cities listed in alphabetical order, but "San Francisco" comes after "San Jose" when it should come before it.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Dog - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: When Monk comes home (after being at Steve's house) and starts to pet the dog, the dog sits down. But in one shot she's suddenly standing and wagging her tail, but then back to sitting in the next shot.

AAMCO - S1-E7

Trivia: The AAMCO Guy, played by Mike Hagerty, asks Larry David if he gets paid when "Seinfeld" reruns are aired. Mike Hagerty was in an episode of "Seinfeld." He played Rudy, the guy that buys clothes from George and was going to buy the raincoats from Kramer and Morty Seinfeld.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Makes the Playoffs - S7-E13

Other mistake: At the end when Bob Costas is signing off, the mic is in his right hand with the window on his right). When it switches to Natalie watching the upside down TV, the image on the screen is a flipped image (so that the mic is in his left hand and window is on his left). The broadcast wouldn't be a flipped (or mirrored) image than what we see, otherwise, everything the viewer is watching would be backwards (like the writing and numbers).

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk Paints His Masterpiece - S6-E14

Character mistake: While the concept of the knife height and stab wound is OK, the way Monk measures the height of the knife is way off. He says it's 48", which is 4 record lengths, but he doesn't put the bottom of the record where the top previously was, sometimes he only moves it half way up. Then the top of the record is above the knife, so it couldn't be 48" even if it was done right. As particular and accurate as Monk is, he wouldn't make this mistake.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Genius - S7-E2

Character mistake: At the beginning when Monk is writing Natalie's check, we see a shot of it, but the I in "nine" isn't dotted. As meticulous as he is, Monk would never leave an I undotted (we've even seen him dot someone else's i) especially since it would bother him.

Last Man Standing (2011)

Show generally

Question: Does this show have the "record" for most times they recast a main character? There's been 2 Ryans, 3 Boyds (not counting them as twins), 2 Kristins, 2 Mandys, and 2 Carol Larabees. I know there's countless shows with 1 or 2 recasts, but what other shows come close?

Monk (2002)

Show generally

Question: How exactly does Monk afford to pay Natalie? Would he still get a pension after being discharged for psychiatric reasons? Is it ever mentioned (in-universe or otherwise) if he's independently wealthy or something? On several occasions Natalie tried to get the department to pay Monk more and tells Monk he can't afford things at times or his check will bounce, like he's broke.

Bishop73

Answer: Natalie is not officially employed by Monk, like an independent contractor she gets paid under the table.

That doesn't explain how Monk can afford to pay her.

Bishop73

Answer: He gets paid by the city on a case by case basis, and she gets paid out of that.

Answer: He would have received a disability check, suffering from a mental illness qualifies you, the same as a physical injury, but would be limited to his therapy and living expenses.

Except he would be limited in what he could earn to receive payments and that wouldn't be enough to pay a full time employee.

Monk (2002)

Show generally

Question: Is it ever stated (in-universe or otherwise) if Natalie has a second job, or how she can afford everything, including all her new cars (I've seen her in at least 5 new cars, including an Audi)? She's always complaining she's broke, even after it's revealed she's a Davenport. But she also claims she doesn't take money from them. Plus, she's always trying to get Monk to pay her and/or pay her the full amount she's owed.

Monk (2002)

Factual error: When Cyborg is looking at video footage of Linda Reed, it shows her social security number (971-33-1276). But SS numbers don't start with 9, which is reserved for ITINs.

WandaVision (2021)

Trivia: The delivery company seen in Westview is called "Presto", which is a word magicians often use (usually after a quick change trick).

WandaVision (2021)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: When everyone is supposed to be frozen, the neighbor girl standing behind the car can be seen moving her hand onto the car. This happens as Monica says "I'm not afraid of you, Wanda." (00:24:25)
