Feat of Clay (2) - S1-E5

Plot hole: Unless he didn't feel like it or Daggett's being held somewhere that's secret there's no reason that Clayface, who faked his death, couldn't try to track him down again.

Mad as a Hatter - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: The 10/6th on the Mad Hatter's mind control cards come and go throughout the episode. An example is when he first is shown holding them they're blank. Then when he decides to use them on his date with Alice they've suddenly got the 10/6th.

Prehistoric Women (1967)

Revealing mistake: Despite the best efforts, you can tell the fabled white rhino is just a prop on wheels.

Rob245

Continuity mistake: In addition to the sweatshirt or turtleneck, Ock's wearing the pair of sunglasses he wore for the bank robbery. Impossible as those were broken by Aunt May. He should've had on the other pair he wore late in the movie.

Suggested correction: When you think about it, the Doc Ock that shows up both knows who Spider-Man is and is still being controlled by the tentacles. In Spiderman 2 this happens minutes before his death, when he convinces the tentacles to listen to him now. So, he had to have been pulled out during his exchange with Spiderman, which seems highly unlikely. Or, this is an even different Doc Ock that still has that pair of sunglasses and probably found out who Spider-Man was at a different point in time.

Blue Bloods (2010)

Legacy - S8-E15

Factual error: It's said the illegal immigrant from Venezuela has a new born child. Yet they're still talking of deporting him. Impossible as that child was born here, she/he is an automatic citizen and can represent the whole family in getting citizenship as the law dictates.

Suggested correction: No, it's not impossible. It's a lot more complex and there's no guarantee for immediate citizenship for the parents. There's not even a guarantee a child will be given residency in the US until he or she is old enough to live on his or her own. However, I missed the part in the episode that said anything about the child being born in America, they just said he had a "newborn."
