General questions

Is there a reason a weekly TV series wouldn't name their episodes? I can understand a soap opera that's on 5+ days a week for decades not wanting to name thousands of episodes, but some shows just list the episode number or use a #1.1 pattern. For example, I'm rewatching "Dark Matter" and each episode in season 1 is just the episode number while season 2 and 3 the episodes have names.

Eternals (2021)

Trivia: When Kingo doesn't want to leave because he's making a trilogy, he says they just got BTS to do a cameo. This is a reference to the South Korean boy band, BTS. Their song "Friends" is also featured in the next scene. The line made have been added in because there was a scene cut in Marvel's series "The Falcon and the Winter Solider" where actor Danny Ramirez ad libbed the line "I wish we were all more like the boy band BTS." Fans reacted by asking Marvel to release the BTS cut scene.

Home Alone (1990)

Trivia: In the IO Interactive video game "Hitman", there's a side bonus mission called "Holiday Hoarders" where your mission is to take out two thieves named Harry and Marv. In the intel, both men are from Chicago and after several break-ins that went wrong, the two flee to Paris. Harry is said to have a history of breaking into mansions with security equipment way beyond his capabilities to overcome.

Question: Minor question, when Trinity and the Keymaker steal the bike, there's a shot of the driver and in the back of his cab is a picture of what looks like a model. Who is she? It seems someone from the art department or set decorator put thought into putting up the picture in the first place, so it seems there might be some significance or inside reference. But it's also seen so briefly I could believe it's just random too.

Bishop73

Answer: Personally I think it's not meant to be significant in any way. A lot of truck drivers have pictures of models in their cabin I'd expect, just added for the stereotype. I don't know who the model is though. BTW, this is a scene from Matrix Reloaded.

Race Off - S1-E5

Trivia: The scene showing Connie training to be a Navy Seal and being caught with a Thanksgiving dinner by Kirk comes from the scene in "Full Metal Jacket" where the drill sergeant finds a jelly donut in Pvt. Pyle's footlocker, including the line about eating it because they paid for it.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Trivia: Not sure if it was done on purpose, but when Tony and Happy are sparring and "Natalie" (Natasha) walks in, the song playing is "Magnificent Seven" by The Clash. It just so happens the Avengers (or the Avengers Initiative) are made up of Iron Man, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor, Captain America,, Hawkeye, and Black Panther.

Suggested correction: I don't really think this constitutes trivia. I don't see the connection. Is there some significance to the lyrics I'm not realizing? Or are you suggesting that there are only seven Avengers in the MCU? Because if so, that's not really true at all. (It's not even true in the Avengers comics, which frequently shifts characters around.) Especially as when this film came out, Black Panther wouldn't be introduced for another six years. Plus that completely ignores characters like Ant-Man, Wasp, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Scarlet Witch, War Machine, Falcon, Vision, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man, who join the team at various points during the franchise. I think this trivia is stretching at best, and trying to create significance where there is none.

Which is why I wasn't sure if it was done one purpose, or if it seems significant. However, when Fury and Tony are talking at the end and you see markers on the map, there's one in Africa where Wakanda is, suggesting Black Panther was part of the Avengers Initiative, whereas the others weren't.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Continuity mistake: After Tony puts the shield under the tube and takes the level off, there's nothing on the ring around the tube. But in the next shot facing Tony, there's an object that looks like ball bearing sitting on it.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Continuity mistake: When Tony is at the party and shooting things, he shoots the watermelon from his chest RT. We see the watermelon explode and the beam dissipate. The next shot is the watermelon raining down. Then the next shot is of Tony and the beam still coming out of his chest, but he never fired twice.

General questions

Not sure if this is the forum, but since there's video game mistakes listed; are there any sports video games that let you attempt to cheat or get aggressive against another player? Not talking about cheat codes, but say a baseball game that lets you use a corked bat or pine tar where you hope to not get caught. Or a football game that lets you try to trip a runner. The old Nintendo "Ice Hockey" game would let you start a fight sometimes that other players got involved, so that sort of thing.

Bishop73

Answer: There were button combinations on Adidas Power Soccer for PS1, that would let you handle the ball or take a dive. More often than not you would get caught but it was possible to get away with it. Some earlier FIFA games (1998-2001ish?) would let you dive as well.

Sons of Anarchy (2008)

The Pull - S1-E8

Trivia: In this episode, Francis Capra plays Jesse Murphy (one of the Oakland Mayans). In the show "Heroes", Capra also plays a criminal named Jesse Murphy. He appeared in "Heroes" a month before this episode. This episode also follows the 2 episodes featuring Agent Stahl played by Ally Walker. Walker played Capra's on-screen mother in the film "Kazaam."

Looper (2012)

Question: When present-day Seth is being tortured, it ends up affecting future Seth (which I get). They carve the address, and it appears. They cut off fingers, and then his fingers disappear. My question is why wouldn't all these scars and missing body parts appear all at once for future Seth? Especially since the injuries aren't appearing in real time for future Seth, they've already healed into scars. It seems like a plot hole unless I missed an in-film explanation or Rian Johnson explained this.

Knight Rider (1982)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: In most episodes you can tell different versions of the car are being driven. In most close up shots, or inside the car, KITT has a distinct black panel on the top part of the windshield and no rear view mirror. In some shots, the black panel has a different shape. But in most wide shots where we see real life driving, there is no black panel at all and sometimes there's a rear view mirror that can be seen. You can also see a normal steering wheel in driving scenes, especially during stunts.

Hide and Seek - S1-E2

Audio problem: After Kate shoots an arrow at the mafia guys, she says "told ya." Then we hear Clint/Hawkeye say "yeah", except he's on camera and his mouth doesn't move, he doesn't even change his facial expression.
