Question: When Boobie hurts his knee after going back in when Comer can't find his helmet, wasn't Comer the third string running back? Why couldn't they have kept Boobie's backup in there? On top of that, there was only a minute and some seconds left in the game and Permian was up 42-7. Couldn't they have just taken a knee instead of trying to run another play? The game was out of reach, and there was no need to run another play.

Question: I have two questions. Firstly I read that Liev Schrieber makes an appearance. Does anyone know which one he is? Secondly, given how much Hunt admired Jake, why didn't he warn him that the gang had a new leader and that he risked death by going back due to his betrayal? Seems odd to me that he said nothing.

Question: The ship is hit by a solar flare. But in that case shouldn't Earth advise them about the solar flare incoming? It is supposed that the Sun is constantly watched for solar flares, in case a human mission is en route. Shouldn't mission control on Earth be watching for any unusual solar activity to advise the crew? And they could warn them with time because radio waves go faster than solar flares.

Question: Who is the vendor or manufacturer of that pull-up bar stand that Tony Stark is using near the beginning of the movie? And where could I get one?

Question: Why did at the end of the movie did Rocco Klein let Strike leave town?

Question: Michael is in the year 2023 (following the timeline of the movie), and then upon learning of Morty's true identity, he asks to be taken to a good place and then he appears at his son's wedding. Everything I've read about this movie says that the wedding is in the year 2030 (one article said 2033). But where in the movie is the proof that seven (or ten) years have gone by? His kids look the same as 2023 and the wedding is simply "a good place" he was taken to. Where's the evidence showing a future year?

Question: How did Miss Milner know that it was Teddy who (unintentionally) asked her out on a date? She couldn't see him and he didn't introduce himself so I am very confused.

The Gooseberry Bush - S3-E6

Question: I have watched this episode probably 30 times - I watch it in bed, to put me to sleep - and I don't understand the plot at all, unless it is just an excuse so Rosemary and Laura have to deal with a baby. Is there anyone out there who watches this show besides me? If there is, can you please tell me what this episode is all about?

Question: Does anyone know where the idea for the Arab flag in the movie came from? Seems to me it resembles the Louisiana flag (the bird with the babies) except with no writing. Did anyone else notice this?

Season 4 generally

Question: In the original timeline, when Fauxlivia and our Olivia are in their opposite universes, the thing that makes our Olivia remember her real life and try to escape is the memory of Peter. In the new timeline, he doesn't exist. When Walternate has found and synthesised the Cortexiphan, he says that our Olivia is no longer necessary and to kill her. How did she get back to our universe with no memories of Peter, and no alternate Broyles helping her to escape and being sent to us dead with one leg?
