Wonder Woman (1976)

The New Original Wonder Woman - S1-E1

Stupidity: There's much fuss about who will take Steve Trevor back which is resolved via a contest. Why the Amazons don't heal him, if possible, then set him adrift to a safe port is never asked. They did this when Nazis invaded in the two part episode The Feminum Mystique.

Cruella (2021)

Factual error: When Cruella first drives her iconic car, being in Britain the driver's seat should be on the right side, not the left.

Spider-Man (1994)

Answer: I don't think the intent is for her to be a cyborg. Since she suffered a facial disfiguration and had no access to medical treatment or reconstructive surgery, the mask on her face probably serves to hide her scars. Plus, since she's the episode's villain, it helps to make her look more menacing.

Urban Legend (1998)

Question: How can Natalie and Michelle get only probation for causing someone's death?

Rob245

Answer: They would have been charged with vehicular manslaughter, not even a felony in some jurisdictions. If it was a first offense and/or they lied about what happened, probation wouldn't be off the mark.

Dressed to Kill (1980)

Plot hole: Given a crime may have been committed by one of Elliott's patients there's no reason Det Marino can't get a court order to look at his patient records.

Wonder Woman (1976)

Answer: The first actress, Cloris Leachman appeared in the TV movie which ended up being the pilot for the series. At the time, Leachman was already starring in her own TV series "Phyllis" (a spin off her role in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show"). This was actually the 2nd TV movie meant to be a pilot and the first one wasn't picked up. It's unlikely she thought the show would be picked up. After season 1, in which Carolyn Jones played the role, ABC was slow to make a decision to pick up the series for season 2 and CBS picked up the series. When CBS picked up the series, they changed the time setting of the show and replaced all the actors, with the exception of Carter and Waggoner (with Waggoner playing a different role technically), resulting in Beatrice Straight being cast.

Answer: It is typical to recast non-regular cast members in a TV series, usually because they are no longer available or another actor was better suited for the part. Non-regular actors move on to other acting jobs during a series' run. Cloris Leachman, Carolyn Jones, and Beatrice Straight, who played Hippolyta, were well-known character actresses who were billed as "Guest Stars." Cloris Leachman was only in the show's pilot episode and was on the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Carolyn Jones played Hippolyta during Season 2, then was cast in the TV mini-series "Roots." Beatrice Straight played Hippolyta in the final season.

Halloween (1978)

Question: If Tommy and Lindsey both had babysitters why couldn't they go trick or treating?

Rob245

Answer: Who said they weren't allowed to go trick or treating? They both seemed more interested in the movies than anything else.

Ladykiller (1996)

Continuity mistake: When Janice and Guy are lying on the stairs of his loft apartment one of her shoes falls off. In the next shot it's back on her foot.

Supergirl (1984)

Answer: It's never explained, she could have changed at super speed. In Superman II, when confronted by the super criminals at the Fortress of Solitude, Superman did a disappearing and reappearing act. So did the criminals. It might be a similar thing.
