Salvage - S8-E9

Factual error: Dogget says that "It would require something 4,300 times the density of steel to cause this damage." Steel is about 8 times denser than human flesh, so bearing in mind that density is proportional to mass at constant volume, it means that Ray would be 4,300 x 8 = 34,400 times heavier than if he were a regular human being. Assuming that he normally weighed about 80 kg, after the transformation he would weigh 80 kg x 34,400 = 2,752 tons. It means that hardly any ground would support his incredibly huge mass, let alone items such as a bed, chair, stairs, building structures, etc.

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

Revealing mistake: When Agent Reyes drives up to Agent Dogget's parked car, he looks in his rearview mirror. Its background should be obviously a transparent windshield to which the mirror is fixed. However, when the camera shows the image seen in the rearview mirror, we see in the background something similar in appearance to a solid wall. (00:10:50)

Trust No 1 - S9-E6

Question: After blowing up the car, when the NSA guy answers Scully's question, "How the hell do you know my size?" he says, "I know the name of your college boyfriend, your true hair colour, your ATM PIN number." This strongly suggests that red is not her true colour. Therefore, my question is: What is the true colour of Scully's hair?

Answer: He was being facetious. He doesn't specifically know that information, he was merely giving examples of the types of information he has access to.

I think so too.

Answer: Actress Gillian Anderson's natural hair color is strawberry blonde, which she dyed fiery red. (Although in the revival of the show she wears a wig).

The question does not concern Gillian Anderson's true hair colour-it concerns Agent Dana Scully's true hair colour.

Continuity mistake: When doctors make a cut on Cassandra's belly, the green substance comes out of the cut and pours down directly onto the piece of blue cloth she is covered with. In the next shot the fragment of cloth that was in contact with the substance is dry, but in the following shot, there is a large soaked stain on the piece of cloth. (00:00:50)

Factual error: When Byers asks Langly to try under active cases to find Holly Modeski in the FBI database, Langly only presses two or three keys on a keyboard, which is obviously not enough to enter "Holly Modesky" to the search engine. (00:19:40)

Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully talk about the piece of skin while driving to the reservation, one can see that there are green trees from the Mulder's side of the road, but when the shot is taken from the outside of the car, there are only grey bushes and landscape devoid of nearby trees on both sides of the road.

Piper Maru (1) - S3-E15

Factual error: At the beginning of the scene, XO Johanson is looking through the periscope. However, it is nonsense, because the submarine was in silent running, and the Japanese destroyer was circling it, so the sub must have cruised in deep submersion. The water depth there was approx. 270 meters, as the French salvage team claims at the beginning of the episode. There is rarely any significant light beyond 200 meters. Looking through the periscope in these conditions would be completely useless. (00:32:25)
