Batwoman (2019)

Batman (1966)

Fine Feathered Finks (1) - S1-E3

New this week Stupidity: The conveyor belt has two different flip switches; one saying START, the other STOP. Who would ever design that, when an on/off switch is more than enough? (00:23:50)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Factual error: Poirot is taking a break from the prosecution' speech and is walking with Hastings, explaining to him Mary Cavendish's jealousy. In the street, they pass by a truck (registration plate MR 5496) that is a Morris-Commercial 1-Ton model. Morris began productions in the early 20s, and we are in 1917 for this episode. (01:17:45)

Lupin III (2015)

The Left Hand of the Magician - S1-E5

New this week Factual error: The contract signed towards the end is written with the wrong characters - it is missing accents on vowels that require it in Italian "è stabilito", "così." (00:19:15)

New this week Revealing mistake: When Fakrash talks to Harold about the woman that got him imprisoned, Burl Ives brings the 'peacock tongue' to his mouth pretending to eat it, but doesn't. (00:51:55)

Ranma ½ (1989)

Shanpû no hangeki! Hissatsu shiatsuken wa mimo kokomo ubau - S1-E16

New this week Continuity mistake: When Ranma holds P-Chan and slaps him back into consciousness, his thumb is always on the opposite side of the bandana, no matter which side that is. (00:09:05)

Lupin III (2015)

The False Play - S1-E2

New this week Continuity mistake: Brozzi fills the glass past the point of overflowing, and sips from it. In the next cut, the glass is already half empty. That's some potent sucking. (00:06:00)

New this week Continuity mistake: Harold is driving to the restaurant, but Mr. Fakrash gets to him flying in a weird sitting position. At the cut, the street signs completely change. (00:24:40)

Lupin III (2015)

Until Sunset, the Full Moon - S1-E7

New this week Character mistake: Zenigata uncovers Elena's arm saying he noticed the mark when she was fighting "those guys previously." Which guys? Her assailant was just one dude. (00:13:40)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Continuity mistake: The guests of Styles Court manage to get inside the room of Mrs. Inglethorp and talk to her before the second fatal crisis happens. In the first wide shot you can see Hastings peek at Lawrence and then look towards the fireplace, which is an action he'll do in the close-up that follows - Lawrence does not seem to look in the direction Hastings is checking out, at all, but that is actually a nice touch considering the resolution. Moreover, in the second close-up of Hastings looking at him (the one that follows the view of the fireplace), Mary is directly in front of Hastings, you can see her insignia and arm. But instantly she is shown at the cut, creeping along the wall behind Lawrence. (00:29:00)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Factual error: At the local food store, Poirot is talking with the shopkeeper. In the background are plenty of food packages that show the great care for authenticity that is a mark of the series. I feel like disputing at least a couple; the Polly box with a parrot is a Taormina American-made can that should be a product of the 20s, and the Brown and Polson's Patent Corn Flour has a claim on the box that says "65 years world-wide reputation." The patent is a 1856 one and the annexed name is from 1859 (previous ads with established date show that year as the one they started counting from); in 1917 the box would have not said "65 years", it hadn't even reached 60.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Continuity mistake: At dinner, Alfred Inglethorp asks Hastings what he's going to do after the war. The person to his left is placing a glass on the table. The next cut happens mid-sentence and in that instantaneous timeframe the glass is perfectly still while the wine was still noticeably moving in the previous shot. (00:10:10)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Factual error: The movie opens with Hastings watching a news film about the "New Flanders Offensive." It says that on "7th June 1917 General Haig attacks Ypres", but at the beginning of the year Sir Douglas Haig was promoted to Field Marshall. A news propaganda reel would surely have called him with the appropriate title. (00:00:35)

New this week Plot hole: There are 17 possible donors for Mrs. Fries. Of all of them, instantly and with no explanation, the doctor chooses Barbara Gordon. She was not the first alphabetically, from the phone call they find out she has a roommate, a boyfriend, she is out for dinner at the moment and is going out of town and of course, REALLY huge warning sign, she is the daughter of the police commissioner (hard to ignore that in Gotham, and Freeze certainly knows him first-hand!). There's no reason why to kidnap her, plenty of reasons not to, and zero reasons given why they did not try any of the other 16 names on the list.

New this week Suggested correction: They did explain exactly why they picked Barbara. The names on the list weren't all perfect matches. They were looking for someone "who's approximately the same weight, height, and female." When he sees Barbara's file, she's a perfect match. The fact that it's Jim Gordon's daughter is of no concern to them, assuming they know it's his daughter since Gotham is said to have a population of 10 million.

New this week You are quoting the movie but then describing something radically different from what is shown (which I understand, since what is shown makes little sense). The list of 18 people (one being Mr. Freeze's wife) is the one that appears exactly *after* he has refined it for "approximately the same weight, height, and female." Everyone on that list should be a perfect match, otherwise there was no point at all in showing him writing F, 5'2", 116 lbs, AB Negative in the search fields and get search results for it. If it's not, he has no way to tell at first glance.

New this week Continuity mistake: Batman is hit by a falling piece of debris as he tries to save Freeze. He seemingly lets just go a button (or something) of the bat-rope gun, since it's still in hand, but a moment later he is dramatically reaching down calling Freeze's name and the hand is empty. He then stands, bat-rope in hand. (00:59:05)

New this week Other mistake: Freeze uses his gun to extinguish the fires on top of the elevator, and that somehow gets it back to work, but it does not really make sense. His gun greatly weakens metal, as shown earlier, to the point of breaking it, and he did not shoot the engine of the elevator, which is what was shown malfunctioning.

New this week Stupidity: Robin uses the high pressure water from the pump to neutralize the bear next to Batman (which is like 10 meters away from him and still the water jet is so strong that it pushes the 1000 pounds bear away and flips it on its back,), but does not use it to push away the other bear that is literally breathing on his face centimeters away from him. He has all the space and time to do that (especially after Batman's intervention). (00:50:30)

New this week Plot hole: Batman finds at Belson's home a handwritten list of substances needed for a transplant. Why would Belson, a medical authority in the field that knows those things thoroughly, even write a list down? If it's for Freeze to procure him the material, why would it be at his house and not with him, and when did he even have time to be at home to do that, since he has been kidnapped by Freeze when he was driving on the outskirts of Gotham and taken to the oil rig? If he had time to go home, he at least would have changed clothes, he's still in the tuxedo he wore when he was kidnapped the night before.

Ranma ½ (1989)

Ranma daisuki! Sayonara wa iwanaide!! - S1-E17

New this week Other mistake: Ranma offers Shampoo a favour in exchange for the bottle of #119. The bottle nested in her bosom does not have the label anymore on either side. (00:12:15)
