Question: Since this movie is a prequel to the events of the first Amityville, why isn't the name DeFeo used since the murders were committed by Ron Defeo Jr.

Leaping of the Shrew - September 27, 1956 - S5-E3

Question: Shortly after Sam throws some items off the life raft, Al appears and tells him that because of what Sam had done, neither he nor Vanessa would be saved for quite a while. If Sam had not done anything, both of them would have been rescued within an hour. I might be wrong about this next part so further verification will help. Al also said that because of Sam throwing stuff into the ocean, that somehow, instead if only being stranded in the lifeboat for a few minutes, four whole hours have passed. How could tossing anything into the ocean have made time move so rapidly?

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Question: Right after the lawyer says to Ross, "of course you did," the camera cuts to Ross. If you look closely, you can see something waving in front of the lawyer's mouth. It is either his tongue or finger. It looks funny, like the actor did it on purpose. Also, the hair looks different, like a chunk has been cut out. It is most likely a different actor for that section of the scene. Why was something waiving in front of his mouth?

Answer: While it does look funny, there's no chunk missing, it's just the way his forehead curves and his hair sticks out on top. It's just more noticeable at that one angle. And, it's the same actor. The thing waving is his finger that he's wagging, and it does seem to be because of a continuity error. Shortly after, when Ross says he'll look into the therapy, the lawyer then points his finger and shakes it (as if to non-verbally say "yes, do that"). It is this action that we see the lawyer doing, from behind, even though he doesn't wag his finger until later.

Question: Why was Ripley cloned?

Answer: In Alien 3, Ripley discovers there was an Alien queen embryo growing inside her, so she chose to kill herself. By cloning her, scientist were hoping the Alien queen embryo she had in her at the time of her death would also become cloned, which finally happen after the 8th try. This is also why the Alien queen they extracted from Ripley has some human traits.

Question: Is there any official explanation on how the toons manifest into physical reality? If Judge Doom were to kill Roger, what's to stop another artist or animator from just creating and willing him into existence again?

Serious B Premium member

Chosen answer: In the world of the film, toons aren't drawn, they actually exist and simply act out what is seen in their cartoons.

Question: I have finished season four and have so many questions. Number one: Can the flesh eating bacteria melt through buildings? Number two: What happens to Citizen Z and Kaya and their baby? Number 3: Why did Murphy not die from the gas? Number 4: Does NewMerica even exist? And did Addy ever make it? Number 5: Warren seems to have survived the crash in the drone. Do her visions become a reality? Number 6: Of doctor teller made her the reset, how could he kill his child? Considering he was still alive before they diverted power. These questions have kept me up at night. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Question: I am confused about the second-to-last time travel of Evan where he ends up in the hospital/institution because he killed Kayleigh with the blockbuster. Since Kayleigh died after Evan began journaling (I remember Evan writing about being excited to meet Kayleigh's real dad), what happened to the journals that the doctor says Evan never had them? He must've had a journal with something written in it.

New this month Answer: My assumption is that Evan didn't have black outs after that incident. In the first "future" he said "seven years with no blackouts." So in that alternate future, he must have stopped having blackouts much earlier (at 7 years old) and stopped the journals earlier too.

Question: What's the name of the actress that plays Nick's secretary? The only with the Ivy League education and a boyfriend in Israel. Her character's name is never mentioned so I can't use IMDb. She has a passing resemblance to Piper Perabo. I know it's not her.

Answer: The actress is Sarah Paulson who played Annie.

Thanks very much.

Question: I just watched this movie on Netflix but there was one minor change; in the DVD version at the beginning of the film when Scooby and Shaggy come out of the limo, Shaggy is holding a cup from Burger King, and later in the movie when they're at Wickles Manor, Shaggy complains about why they can never investigate at a Burger King. However, on the Netflix version, the line and cup were changed to KFC instead. Does anyone know why this would be changed? It seems pretty strange.

Answer: The simple answer is money. Although it has to do with film studios and distribution companies releasing American films to the international markets. Because of technology, studios can digitally alter products in the film and can now sell product placement rights more than once. This practice started with "Demolition Man", where in the US, Taco Bell is the only surviving fast food place. But, overseas, the restaurant is Pizza Hut. In "Scooby Doo 2", Burger King purchased the product placement rights for the film along with "right of first refusal." Burger King then decided to just focus on the U.S. plug. Warner Bros. Was free to sell the plug for the international market release, which KFC bought. So the DVD version was the domestic release version and the Netflix version is the international release. But, I do not have an answer to "why is Netflix showing the international release version?", but I'm sure it has to do with cost of purchasing the rights to stream, unless KFC also bought the product placement rights for streaming in all markets.

Question: One of the dogs, Chelsea, has only three legs when they find her the first time; obviously she can't run or walk very far, so how did she get back to the at the end of the movie? She wasn't in the van when they were taking the dogs back and the only dog that was left behind was the one that Bernie saw, and Chelsea was there when Bernie was calling out some of the dogs by their names, so where did she come from?

Question: Why does Edison become Krall? In other words: why does his appearance change? If the tech that keeps him alive changes him, how can he change (most of the way) back? Finally, if he could change back/remain human this whole time, why would he look like he did?

Answer: The energy transference technology Krall used to drain the life of others caused him to gradually begin to look like the species he was draining. After the attack on the Enterprise he drained several human officers and began to look like his former self.

Question: Towards the end, we see V say he wants Credie to bring Sutler to him. Before that, he has Finch spy on Credie...why? Just so Credie becomes suspicious of his own party spying on him? Also, why would Credie uphold his end of the bargain and bring Sutler to V? We are given the reason by V that that's the only way he'll be caught but V has no way to verify that Credie would do that and has a lot of reason to doubt it.

Answer: Credie is shown throughout the film to be maneuvering to replace Sutler, and when V gives him (Credie) a seemingly gift-wrapped opportunity to get rid of him (Sutler), he takes it because A) V has convinced him that Sutler is who V really wants dead, not Credie; and B) Credie is confident that whatever V has planned, he and his men with their guns (and their bullets) will be able to kill V after Sutler is dead. V tells Finch to watch Credie because he knows Finch is a good man, and wants to lead him to evidence of how deep the government's corruption goes.

Question: Is it true that J.K. Rowling originally intended for Hermione to have a muggle sister?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Yes. J.K. Rowling was going to give Hermione a younger sister who was a muggle. However, by the time "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" came out, she felt that it was too late.

Question: How did Norby and Veeko get Eddie down when he was stuck holding on the crane rope?

Answer: It might have taken a while for them to find the keys to the crane as well as figuring out how to operate it. Once they did, they could get him down.

Question: I get that Meg is in trouble for hitting Veronica in the face with a basketball, but why isn't Veronica in trouble for leaving a mean note on Meg's locker and calling her brother crazy?

Cody Fairless-Lee

New this month Answer: Could be a matter of severity. Hitting someone in the face with a basketball could result in someone being permanently injured or disfigured, possibly even blinded. Leaving mean notes and calling someone crazy is far less serious and might not warrant being punished other than a mild reprimand.

Question: How is it that Thomas can understand what the rabbits are saying as shown in the make-up scene and no other human can?

Cody Fairless-Lee

Answer: In the same way the griffins can understand Brian the dog in Family Guy. It's a cartoon.

Question: While a number of cigarettes show up in the silver streak, none appear to be lit. Am I wrong or was this subtle comedy, or production preference?

Answer: Most likely it was a production decision. Having multiple extra actors continually smoking during multiple takes and over hours of filming would make for a smokey set, affect breathing and burn peoples' eyes, be a fire hazard, and create consistency problems with cigarettes being in various stages of use (freshly lit or almost down to a stub).

Show generally

Question: Why didn't Prue ever make cameos after she died like her mother and grandmother did from time to time?

Answer: Shannen Doherty (who played Prue) really wanted to leave the show beginning of season 3. There was tension between her and Alyssa Milano and she had a hard time working with others who didn't seem to care about the show as much as she did. When she told the show's producers she wanted to leave (get out of her contact early) she was told "no." Once she was done with her contact, she simply had no desire to return to the show, even for a cameo. The other characters who died during the show weren't part of main cast and under contact, so to them, doing an episode here or there wasn't a big deal. To Doherty, there would have been too much drama (and probably hatred). There were also reports that Doherty didn't give her permission for her likeness to be used after she left, although show producers said they didn't use any of her likeness due to budget issues.
