Show generally

Question: Whenever there are scenes in the shower tent, it seems that the direction of the showerheads change. Assuming the door is facing North, sometimes the showers are on the East side, sometimes West. Is this considered a mistake?

Movie Nut

Question: What is the song playing at the beginning of the movie when the characters are talking online to each other?

Question: When Johnny and Lorna are in the castle, before they go into the small room where Johnny accidentally announces his plans over the PA, Lorna is seen with a back tattoo. It looks like perhaps it's a number, "05" maybe? Was there a deleted scene where we see the tattoo more or where characters talk about it? Or was this Natalie Imbruglia's actual back tattoo? Later it seems to be gone.


Question: If Amelia had David towards the end of the 21st century during her reign, how is it possible that Viktor would be suspicious of her whereabouts and send Semira to find her?

Question: If Venom got hit by fire at the end how'd he survive?


Question: In the bowling alley who are the two nuns played by?

Question: Is there anything preventing the small people from being stomped on by normal sized terrorists?


Question: When Lindsey finds out she earned the promotion, she's at a restaurant with Robin Molly, etc. on a social outing. But, they're having a work event down the hall in the same restaurant. How/why do these two separate gatherings collide? Thanks. (01:25:09 - 01:25:40)

Question: Why leave all three Motherboxes on Earth? Wouldn't it have been wiser to let the Green Lantern Corps take at least one of them?

Question: The sequence where the family sees their dog's kennel/chain hanging from the T-Rex's mouth...was that also used in a children's book? My wife and her sister remember it as a story in the 80s, with artwork similar to "Not Now Bernard." My wife's never seen this film, resenting the absence of Sam Neill, but recognises she might have seen the clip and it's just her memory playing tricks on her. Curious if anyone knows of an old book/story with a similar visual.

Question: Why did Sgt Drucker not simply identify and arrest Chris (Val Kilmer) when he arrived to collect Charlene? They had seen each other just earlier that day at the bank shoot out.

Question: Why is the dude lying and telling Jackie Treehorn that the amount of the ransom is only half a million dollars? Thus, he also cuts in half his own commission.


The Defiant One - S1-E12

Question: The crew happen upon a crashed Wraith vessel from 10,000 years ago, with a hibernating Wraith inside, Problem is, why haven't other Wraith already found it sometime before then? They've been ruling the Galaxy, with a surplus of people and machines, for thousands of years - it's not like it was hidden at the bottom of the ocean like Atlantis, its distress beacon was working.


Question: Before I claim this as a continuity or factual mistake - a question: When the Arab raiding party shows up over the dune, they camp by a collection of scrub that was not all dead, some was green. There were also a number of plants in that low-lying area around the camp. Wouldn't the survivors had a better chance of surviving more days by digging for underground water in that area? Perhaps deep, but there. If they took 12 days to build the plane, it seems 2 days digging for water would have given them more time.


Hit and Run - S2-E5

Question: Towards the end of this episode the squad car has to double park so Regan can use a phone box, as Regan gets out of the car a van has to drive round the squad car and the driver sounds the horn, Regan gesticulates and shouts "up yours" at the van driver. I wonder if this was scripted or was a random moment and John thaw was ad-libbing?

Question: Don't some of the inmates, who're mentally ill, belong in a prison psych ward?


Show generally

Question: Is there any reason they can't introduce sand worms to other planets in the Duniverse, there to proliferate and produce a greater, more widely distributed quantity of the spice? The newborn worms are called sandtrout, by virtue of being more or less the size of such. Should be easy enough therefore to capture some, surround them with sand in the spaceship to imitate their homeworld, and take them to some other planet the Empire is willing to give up for any other use, then let them grow and produce spice? Much greater abundance, much surer supply (the proverbial eggs in one basket), much closer at hand for any other world in the Universe?


Question: What differentiates the End of Mort story from the Shooter story? I mean, Mort adapts Shooter's story in the end, in which Amy is killed and buried in the garden, so what was the ending that Mort wrote in the book and magazine before John Shooter's "Perfect Ending"?


Question: What did Cristu's right-hand man say that caused Looney Bin Jim to kill him?

Show generally

Question: Which episode is it where they referenced Beetlejuice's wife being angry because Lydia calls him?
