Kicks - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Jake is explaining why he let Richmond go, the left zip of his hoodie goes from folded out to flat between shots and back again a few times. This is especially noticeable when he says "the old me." (00:18:07)

Halloween III - S3-E5

Other mistake: Holt takes the crown out of the back of Jake's cabinet. However this wouldn't be possible as the crown was in the top drawer. This would have a back on it and it wouldn't be accessible by just removing the back of the cabinet.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: During Danny's party you can see Monica's apartment through the gap between the door and the wall, despite the party taking place on a lower floor. This is because they just reused the set for the hallway to save having to build a new set for the "lower floor."

Trivia: During scenes where Hermione is writing with a quill, Emma Watson was actually writing things like "my name is Emma Charlotte Watson", "I am 10 years old" and (my personal favourite) "I really like this quill."

HalloVeen - S5-E4

Other mistake: When Amy reaches down to get the key out of her shoe she literally only bends slightly. There is no way that she could've reached all the way down to her foot, or retrieve the key in the seconds before she gets it. (00:14:30)

The Venue - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: When Charles shows the picture of the horse and says "look what you get when you search for 'Charles Boyle medal of valor'" he's typed "peanut butter the horse" into his phone.

The Good Place (2016)

What's My Motivation - S1-E11

Plot hole: In this episode we learn that to earn points Eleanor needs to have the correct motivation, and doing good things so that she can get into the good place is having corrupt motivations. However when we meet Doug in a later episode he's shown to be a "model human" yet everything he does is so that he doesn't go to the bad place. This doesn't make sense, as his motivations should be corrupt by knowing about the good place at all.

Suggested correction: I disagree, I think that because his theories weren't confirmed, he has the same chance of getting in as anyone else. There are plenty of other people that do good things because they want better treatment in the afterlife.

The episode makes it clear that Doug is convinced his theory is correct and he even says something along the lines of "I need to do good to get into the good place" (not a direct quote). To Doug his theory is confirmed and that should be enough to corrupt his motivations.

Max Thompson

I agree. Doug's motivations for doing good things, are based on the belief that doing good things gets him into the good place. But that's all it is, a belief. Eleanor actually knows the truth and it's only after death, and after the fear of eternal torture, that she tries to be a better person. As for Doug's point total, I think he was so focused on not losing points that he became a passive hermit who rarely did anything. And by not doing anything, there were very few options to earn points.

Suggested correction: Which explains why, as we later find out, his point total is nowhere near good enough to reach the Good Place. His good deeds are offset by his corrupted motivations.

That's not what happened at all. His good deeds aren't off-set by corrupt motivations, they're off-set by unintended consequences of good actions, which is why nobody was getting into the Good Place. Doing a good thing, like buying flowers for a loved one gave the expected positive points, but earned negative points for everything associated with the farming, raising, and selling of the flower.

No, Shaun said that because the good place was impossible to get in and it even said no-one arrived at the good place in 500 years.

Suggested correction: The reason Eleanor's motivation is corrupt and not Doug's is because Eleanor was already dead, and knew definitely of the consequences. Though Doug's theory was correct he had no way of knowing what would truly happen if he didn't do good. It is the same with other religions, though Doug was correct in his theory, it still was only a theory that could not be proven. He went to Doug because he knew for certain Doug would be the one person on Earth whose points should have been extremely high.

Except Tahani went to the Bad Place despite all the good she did because her motivations were corrupt. Her corrupt motivations shouldn't have been a factor if it's not a factor for Doug. And Tahani wasn't even trying to get into the Good Place like Doug was.

Mr. Santiago - S4-E7

Revealing mistake: When Jake is typing on his computer just before Terry talks to him about meeting Amy's dad for the first time, his computer is and remains on the desktop doing nothing. (00:02:05)

Elf (2003)

Plot hole: Throughout the film we see several characters talk about how there's no Christmas spirit and how nobody believes in Santa anymore. If, in this universe at least, Santa does exist, it's almost impossible for people to think this. If the parents deliver the presents then how do they explain the excess gifts that Santa brings? We know that Michael is on the nice list because Santa shows him towards the end, so Michael must get presents from Santa. There is no way that Walter can't believe in Santa then because Michael gets gifts from him every year.

Suggested correction: Emily and Walter probably just thought each present Michael got from Santa was from the other parent. I'm not sure if Walter got him presents or not but you can see that Emily did as she's seen walking home with presents when she's on the phone with Walter.

That is highly unlikely. When my daughter was "believing in Santa" age, my wife and I always talked about what we were getting her, so we didn't duplicate. Plus that theory wouldn't work for single parents.

Outnumbered (2007)

Episode #3.6 - S3-E7

Other mistake: When Pete goes to turn off the car alarm, you get a look at the key he uses, this key is for a Vauxhall Corsa, and this isn't the car that's going off, it's not even by the same manufacturer. (00:12:15)
