Sherlock (2010)

The Great Game - S1-E3

New this month Character mistake: In the opening scene, Sherlock makes a point to correct Barry's poor grammar. But later, when talking to Watson, Sherlock uses poor grammar by saying "who's sleeping with who." It should be "who's sleeping with whom." Not a mistake Sherlock would make.

Daredevil (2015)

Blindsided - S3-E4

New this month Question: Matt has the taxi take him to the prison and tells the driver to wait for him. But the taxi is parked right next to the exit gate, so as close to the prison as you can get. During such an intense riot and lockdown, would a corrections officer tell the taxi to move? This is a question for people with prison/correctional work experience in regards to lockdown procedures.

Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Moebius: Part 2 - S8-E20

Question: When the present/future is altered, what was purpose of Jack, Sam, and Daniel going to recruit Teal'c? Was it just to recreate SG-1 so they could begin going on off-world missions? Did they even have a plan to fix the past/present (prior to Daniel being killed and they jumped back in time)? Then at the end, when the tape said there's no fish in the pond, wouldn't that Jack (Jack #3 if you will) already know there are in fact fish in his pond (since whatever changes to the past that affected the pond would also affect Jack #3)?

Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Lockdown - S8-E3

Other mistake: At the end, Anubis/Vaselov is sent to KS7-535 and we see a shot of the gate being partially buried in snow and Anubis frozen. However, the wormhole should have cleared all the snow in its path when it established, meaning it wouldn't be buried in the snow as seen.

Stargate SG-1 (1997)

Show generally

Character mistake: Sometimes in the show, when a Goa'uld or Tok'ra is speaking (as opposed to the host speaking), they will say "my symbiote", such as when facing danger or illness: "my symbiote will protect me" or "my symbiote will heal me." However the Goa'uld and Tok'ra are the symbiote and they should be referring to themselves protecting or healing the host's body.

Common mistakes

Other mistake: Someone coming into a room, or situation, and delivering a line in response to what was just said, even though there was no way they were able to hear what was just said (or even knowing what the conversation was about).

Chapter Six: An Exorcism in Greendale - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lady Blackwood is talking to Zelda about her 2 miscarriages, she only has one hand on her belly, but in the next shot she's using both hands.

Bishop73

Chapter Two: The Dark Baptism - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Sabrina is about to sign the book with her blood, the drop of blood keeps changing where it's at. At first it hits a drawn line, then it's above the drawn line and is right below the last name. In the third shot, there is now a line space between it and the last name in the book. It continues to change depending on the camera angle.

Common mistakes

Factual error: Whenever someone flatlines and a doctor (or nurse) grabs the defibrillator and is able to shock the person back to life. Defibrillators only work when the person still has a heartbeat, but the heart is in fibrillation. And even when doctors do use a defibrillator, they still perform regular CPR afterwards, which is rarely (if ever) shown being done. Usually in the film or show, the person comes back to life, sits up, and takes a huge gulp of air as if they had been holding their breath underwater.

Suggested correction: The spirit of this entry is correct - defibrillation is WAY overused to add drama - but the facts are wrong. First, defibrillators are rarely used unless there is electrical activity but no heartbeat, as is the case when fibrillation is occurring. In fibrillation, the heart is not beating, only twitching without rhythm. CPR is never done after restoring the heartbeat, no doctor would perform compressions on traumatized heart. Finally, most patients suffer serious complications after defibrillation. A patient who jumps up after defib only happens... in the movies.

I did oversimplify when I said heartbeat. But a twitching heart is different than a completely stopped heart. And the point of the entry is the fact that defibrillation machines are over used and patients don't jump up afterwards, which you only confirmed, so the correction is unnecessary. And, where do you get your information about not performing CPR? The general consensus is to do CPR. Here's a short article. Again, this correction is unneeded. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/25597505/.

Common mistakes

Factual error: When someone dies with their eyes open and another character can close the dead person's eyes by gently running their hand over their face. The eyes of a dead body won't stay shut that way.

New this week Suggested correction: This is partially true. If the person is recently deceased then you can close the eyes with relative ease. If however they have been deceased long enough for rigor mortis to set in then the mistake is valid. It's a tough one to be honest.

Common mistakes

Stupidity: When someone has duct tape put over their mouth and they're unable to scream for help, or warn someone coming in about a trap. Duct tape over the mouth easily comes off if you open up your mouth because it can't hold your jaw shut. And if you need a little help getting it off your lips because you can't open your mouth wide enough, just stick out your very wet tongue.
