Hollywood A.D. - S7-E19

Corrected entry: After Mulder storms from the cinema at the end, Scully finds him sitting in the messy, deserted graveyard movie set. However, since the movie was premiering, which happens months after filming is completed, it makes no sense that the set would appear as if it was finished with that same day or that week.


Correction: If the studio wanted to reuse the set for another movie, which happens all the time in real life, then they would keep the set up to save on production costs rather than deconstructing it and having to rebuild it.

Hollywood A.D. - S7-E19

Corrected entry: In this episode, Mulder and Scully are watching a film about them that was shot sixteen months ago. But that would have been sometime in late 1998, when Mulder and Scully were not on the X-Files. But yet they're in Skinner's office at the beginning. If they had shot the film in consistency with the current timeline, (2000) then the film would have been shown in late 2001. But in that time, Mulder was missing and Scully had a newborn. if anything, she would have seen the movie with Doggett. Somebody didn't plan ahead... (00:04:05)

Correction: The X-Files were closed at the end of season 5, but Mulder and Scully were still working under A.D. Skinner in the first X-Files movie, which takes place in the summer of 1998. It wasn't until the beginning of season 6 that they were reassigned to A.D. Kersh. Plus, the case they were working on in this episode wasn't officially an X-File, it was a church bombing, so there's no reason they couldn't have been working on a domestic terrorism case under Skinner. There's no error in the timeline here.

Sein und Zeit (1) - S7-E10

Corrected entry: Up to this point in the series, Samantha has been shown by the Smoking Man to Fox. In this episode it appears Fox has completely forgotten the fact that he already saw his sister alive on more than one occasion and appears to back on the belief that she's missing and has accepted the fact that she is dead.

Correction: That wasn't actually his sister he saw on those previous occasions, but rather clones of her. The Smoking Man was only trying to trick Mulder into believing his sister was still alive in order to manipulate him.

X-COPS - S7-E12

Corrected entry: The tv-esque footage of the show is supposed to be being recorded as the investigation goes on, it's not pre-recorded or supposed to be airing as we watch, yet there is a perfectly placed 'blur circle' following the face of the prostitute. That kind of thing is generally done when filming is done and being edited for tv; even if for whatever reason they decided to blur her face during filming, the blur point follows her face perfectly despite her flailing and panicking, which is highly unlikely.

Correction: Much like the show COPS which this episode crosses over with, the footage is presented in a raw format and always appears to be in the process of being recorded. The episode as we see it is how the viewers of the X-Files universe would see the "episode" of COPS with Mulder and Scully.

The Amazing Maleeni - S7-E8

Corrected entry: Maleeni and Billy are released from prison at the end, allowed to just walk free even though they have robbed a bank. Mulder says they can't complete their EMT scam without the card with his thumbprint on it but their inability to complete their intended crime wouldn't be grounds enough to let them go; they still robbed the bank and set up the EMT theft.

Correction: There was not enough hard evidence to link them to the bank robbery, specifically as the robbery occurred while they were believed to have been in their holding cells. Their intention to steal money over the computer was speculation on Mulder's part, which would not be enough to convict them.

X-COPS - S7-E12

Corrected entry: When Mulder says "We've got to find this Chantara," or something like that, you can see that he starts to mess up his lines and struggles not to laugh.

Correction: Mulder is just laughing at how ridiculous the gay couple is acting.
