The Tenth Planet - S4-E2

Question: What caused the first Doctor to regenerate? Was it old age?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: No, it was the result of the Cybermen's draining Earth of energy to their world, that also affected the Doctor, draining his energy as well, causing him to regenerate.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Question: Why are young initiates taken to the Untempered Schism? What purpose does this serve?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: I think that looking into the Untempered Schism shows the young Time Lords infinity. It shows them everything, and it is like a test. If they can resist the urge to grab it and take it all for themselves, then they are worthy to be a Time Lord.

Question: What happened to Wheels (the little remote controlled car that Mikaela was turning into a pet) at the end? The last time I remembered seeing him in the movie was him entering that one building in Egypt, where Bumblebee, Mudflap, and Skids can't get into. He mutters something about "stupid Autobots". But, after that, he kind of disappears? Or was he around and I just didn't notice?

Chosen answer: After the tomb, he doesn't appear onscreen again. There's no indication as to what happened to him.

JAGwire

Question: If Mildred Kemp is in the mental institution under her real name, then why in the article does it say that she is still at large? Is this just part of the delusion that Anna is playing out?

scaryterri

Chosen answer: The newspaper article saying she was still at large was 20 years old. It can safely be assumed that she was caught and put into the institution during that 20 year time frame.

rswarrior

Question: Johnny mentions something about ex-degenerate. I was just curious, what exactly was he talking about?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: He's basically saying that he's going to go "straight-edge" and stop drinking, partying etc. He's going to buckle down and be good. Most likely to win Allie back.

Question: This is a five part question: 1) What exactly were the future mechas doing at the end of the film? 2) Why were the mechas were only able to bring people back for a day? 3) How did the human race become extinct? 4) In what year is it set? 5) In what city is it set?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: 1) They are excavating. 2) It is as far as their technology will allow. 3) It is never stated 4) The movie is set in the 22nd century somewhere between 2100 and 2200. The end of the movie is set 2000 years later. 5) The final parts of the movie appear to be set in Manhattan.

MasterOfAll

Question: This is a two part question. One: To whom did the manor/mansion originally belong to? two: how did Major West and his soldiers come to acquire it?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: One: It is never established. Two: It is fairly obvious how the soldiers came by it. They found it abandoned and moved in.

The Sound of Drums (2) - S3-E12

Question: What exactly is the Cruciform?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: The Cruciform has not been confirmed to be a location, a weapon, a ship, or some kind of object. It has only ever been mentioned, never described. All we know is that it belonged to the Time Lords. It must have been important in the Time War because the Daleks wanted control of it.

Question: Is D'Artangne's gold sword the same prop sword which Ignio Montoya used in The Princess Bride?

Chosen answer: No. Inigo's sword has a jeweled hilt. D'Artagnan's is not jeweled.

Question: How does Frank get into the hands of the bad guys after Malcolm crashes into his house? It seems as if one minute the ambulance blows up, the next he is on a gurney.

Chosen answer: Just before the scene ends, somone in black taps him on the shoulder and knocks him out. We can presume that the person in black is one of the bad guys.

Question: According to scale, Cloud's buster sword blade ends at about his shoulder. If he puts it in his holster on his back, how is he able to pull it out with one arm, if one arm is half the length of one's body?

HulkObsessedChick

Chosen answer: Look at long swords and scabbards today. Often, the scabbards have cuts out of the sides so they can be removed easier.

One of Us, One of Them - S3-E3

Question: Can't The German use his power to simply rip off the door of the vault instead of opening it via the combination?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: The German's powers could be limited in ways of heaviness of the metal he is manipulating. Meaning the door could be too heavy for him to rip off.

Question: Where exactly does Wolverine's Adamantium procedure take place? is it the same place we see in the second X-Men movie? because they both seem a little different.

LazyBoy09

Chosen answer: Its supposed to be the same place. Namely Alkili Lake, British Columbia, Canada. It's Stryker's base of operations for his Weapon X Program until Wolverine escapes and he is forced to shut down. He then moves to 3 mile Island to complete Weapon XI, where he keeps the rest of his captured Mutants. He obviously continues to use the Lake base off the record, likely changing and adapting the interior as time goes on, which would account for differences between Origins and X-Men 2.

When You Hit Upon a Star - S4-E17

Question: In this episode, when Will (Will Smith) is in the limo with Michelle Michaels (Stacey Dash) there a bunch of people drinking champagne, so the question is: is the women sitting next to Will's left Whoopi Goldberg doing an uncredited cameo?

DOB100787

Chosen answer: Its not really Whoopi.. its a impersonator.

Question: If you were on your seventh day and there was no TV in sight, would Samara still be able to kill you?

Chosen answer: Most likely. We have no idea how far away she can be from the TV she spawns from, or if anybody who hasn't been cursed can even see her. Chances are, she would come out of the nearest TV, and stalk you over a great distance. As we see when she kills Naomi Watson's boyfriend, she can practically teleport, and who knows if her power is limited only to TVs.

Question: In the scene where you first see Dolarhyde lifting weights, he has some sort of cloth over his face. Is there any significance to this or is it just a weird character trait?

HeyThereKTJ

Chosen answer: Its because he deems himself as ugly (as a result of the abuse of his grandma) which why when he kills he smashes all the mirrors in the houses.

Question: In the opening credits, do Victor and Logan fight in both World Wars as Americans or Canadians?

Chosen answer: In WWII they are fighting for the Americans for sure, you can tell by the uniforms they are wearing. I am not sure about WW1, it was hard to tell the uniforms apart. But since they are fighting for the Americans in all of the others, it is probably a good bet they where in WW1 as well.

Powerless - S2-E11

Question: I don't understand why Adam Monroe wanted to release The Shani Virus? Doesn't he realise just how dangerous it would have been?

SockWearer

Chosen answer: Thats the point - he wants to kill everyone and start a new world with what few people survive.

Repo_Man

Question: In one of the flashbacks, after Kristy put the magnets on Michele's back, why did she eat Romy's hamburger? This just struck me as odd since the "popular girls" in movies are usually portrayed as dieting often, and they usually don't eat the junk food that the non-popular characters eat.

Chosen answer: She ate it because she's a bitch and wanted to hurt Romy. She didn't take it to eat for food.

Question: What kind of car is it that Rusty is driving, when he picks up Danny from jail in the final scene?

Chosen answer: I'm assuming it was the 1963 Ford Falcon Futura Convertible that served as Rusty's car throughout the film. http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_5165-Ford-Falcon-Futura-1963.html.

If you listen closely it sounds like a late model 5.0L mustang engine in the convertible.
