Question: Series 8 started airing in the U.S in September of last year and the U.K early this year. It will end in the US 3 weeks before the UK. Why if there was such a large difference in original airdates are they finishing so close together?

Chosen answer: This is down to the ways that the respective countries show series. The U.S. will often stop in mid-series and show repeats, dragging out a series of twenty-odd episodes over forty or more weeks, whereas the U.K. will just run straight through a series from beginning to end. As a result, the U.K. tend to catch up, or, as has happened on a few occasions, actually overtake the U.S. schedule.

Question: Why didn't Logan just cure Jean? Did she really have to die?

Chosen answer: Logan barely made it to Jean in one piece - only his healing factor's keeping him alive. Even if he had a vial of the 'cure', which he doesn't, then it would never have survived the onslaught that he has to walk through to get to her.

Question: What was it that Beast said in the jet when they looked upon Alcatraz in the air? He noticed the bridge, and the mutants facing off with the soldiers. Everybody in the theater was laughing, but it wasn't audible enough for me.

Chosen answer: He says "Oh, my stars and garters" - it's one of Beast's stock phrases from the comics.

Backwards - S3-E1

Question: What exactly happened to Cat at the end of this episode?

Chosen answer: He had to use the toilet, but since they were in the Backward World, whatever he excreted would already be there, and go back INSIDE his body, which would be very disturbing.

Question: When the nuns perform for the pope at the end of the film, the pope is seated in the balcony. I was wondering if this would actually happen in real life. Wouldn't the pope be down at the front of the church to celebrate the Mass? I suppose he could have gone up to the balcony just for the singing but that doesn't make much sense.

Chosen answer: The Pope wasn't celebrating the Mass. He was just a guest.

Myridon

Question: Is the dog's owner blind, or does he just have dark glasses? I'm asking because he said that he could have gone out to the yard and gotten the boys' ball if they had asked him, but how could he find it if he was blind?

Chosen answer: Yes he was blind but he probably would have had one of them come with him to find it. He was just a little annoyed that they didn't just come to the front door and ask, they broke into his backyard.

Question: Does anyone know how the effect of Kermit riding the bicycle was done?

Chosen answer: The closest thing to an answer is here, Martin Becker's obituary. His family states that it was a robotic Kermit on a bicycle. Outside of that, everyone else associated with the movie has been quiet on the subject.http://www.fridaythe13thfilms.com/saga/part5/martinbecker.html.

Question: In the new Cartoon Wars episodes, nothing is said and nothing happens when the boys are in the King Of The Hill part of the studio. Is there a joke behind this?

Chosen answer: In King Of The Hill, Hank and his friends usually stand around at the front of his house, drinking beer and saying nothing. The joke is a reference to this.

Question: At the very end of the movie, before the credits, with Magneto playing chess, did he manage to move or knock over the chess piece?It cut to black too quickly for me to see. Were they trying to show that the cure was not permanent?

Spaceboy_007

Chosen answer: The piece did move, very very slightly. I'd argue that the cure is generally permanent, but perhaps with someone of Magneto's power the X gene can't be permanently suppressed, and will slowly regenerate itself through his body, gradually restoring him to full strength.

Jon Sandys

Question: When Jack and Carl are looking at the map, and one of them says "What's that?", we get a close-up of what looks like a blob to me. What do they see in the image?

Chosen answer: They see what looks like the face of a gorilla, but they conclude that it must be a skull for Skull Island.

Question: According to movietome.com, Red Eye would be spoofed. I didn't see anything relevant to Red Eye in this movie (except the crashed plane, but that was in War of the Worlds), but I might be wrong, so was there any references?

Chosen answer: The spoof of "Red Eye" was dropped, there is no reference.

Question: Do we know if Peyton's husband was really molesting his patients? I can't tell if he killed himself out of guilt, or because he was depressed that he had been accused of something like that.

Chosen answer: Yes, Dr. Mott was molesting his patients, as was seen when he slipped off his plastic glove just before performing a pelvic exam on Clair. After Clair reported Mott to the authorities, a number of other women came forward and their accusations were made public. Mott never showed any remorse, and it appears he committed suicide because he was unable to face the ensuing scandal and criminal investigation.

Question: How do you pronounce Jewel Staite's (Kaylee) last name?

Chosen answer: State.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Does anybody know what music the Mexicans are playing in their car? I like it.

Chosen answer: It is a cut/mix of "So Ruff, So Tuff" by Roger Troutman (lead singer of Zapp). I think this is a extended mix of it. It contains the beginning of Zapp's biggest hit "More Bounce to the Ounce" which was off their first self-titled album "Zapp" (1980). This has been used and sampled in Hip Hop songs for over 20 years. Roger Troutman put out his first solo album the next year in 1981 (Many Facets of Roger). This contained the single "So Ruff, So Tuff".

Question: Is it ever established what Geoffrey's surname is?

Chosen answer: At wikipedia.org Geoffrey's full name is listed as Geoffrey Barbara Butler. According to one episode, Geoffrey was an Olympic runner who had cheated during a run; the video of this incident that the family watches confirms Geoffrey's last name is Butler.

Sangie

Question: After the dog and Prince Wendell have been switched, why does the Queen even care about having the dog (who is really Prince)? She doesn't know that Tony can talk to him, so as far as she knows, no one can understand the dog at all. Why would she be concerned?

Chosen answer: Because if Wendell and the switched dog somehow came in contact with each other then they would switch back. She does not want to risk this happening.

Scrappy

Question: When Hannibal is in his exercise cell talking to Will he speaks a few lines in a different accent. Why does he do this?

Chosen answer: It's not unusual for someone to do this to emphasize a particular point, to be sarcastic, or just show off. Lecture was a master manipulator and loved being the center of attention. By slipping into an accent for a few sentences, he jars the listener’s attention.

Question: What species of aliens are performing in the scene where Anakin and Palpatine are in the theater? All I see are large bubbles.

Chosen answer: They're Mon Calamari, the same species as Admiral "It's a trap" Ackbar in Return of the Jedi.
