The X-Files

Two Fathers (1) - S6-E11

Plot hole: Agent Spender watches in horror as Alex Krycek stabs the neck of an alien directly in front of him and the usual bubbling green blood spills out. In every other instance of a human being in such close proximity to the green blood, the person has immediately taken a painful reaction to the substance, including severe damage to the eyes. Spender however is completely unaffected, as is Krycek, who was also close enough to feel the effects.

Suggested correction: The Syndicate is well aware of the effects that the alien blood has on humans and the inherent risk of being exposed to it. They would have inoculated Spender and Krycek in preparation for this.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mulder, Scully and the other police officers are digging Ray Soames's grave, one strap of the coffin breaks and the coffin falls and starts to roll. When it hits a tomb stone and opens, you can see there's a normal size body in the coffin. When they look into the coffin, there's this small alien body. (00:13:35)

Suggested correction: When the coffin opens, it is impossible to notice what sort of body is located in the coffin. Moreover, the rules says that "If a mistake can only be noticed using slow motion or pause, it won't be accepted."

Zero Sum - S4-E21

Other mistake: Misty finds the cabin Jane was in open, however when Jane went to the toilet, she locked the cabin. Because of bees Jane could not have unlocked the doors. (00:02:55)

Suggested correction: In fact, Jane managed to open the cabin's door even though she was attacked by bees.

The Host - S2-E2

Plot hole: Surprisingly, it takes the well-educated Scully quite a long time to realize that the tattoo on the victim's forearm is in Cyrillic lettering. (00:24:00)

Suggested correction: Cyrillic bears similarities to Greek, Slavic, Russian, and some Middle-Eastern lettering. Considering the tattoo was on the decomposing skin of a body that had been submerged in water, it's reasonable to assume it would be difficult for anyone to recognise. Also, nothing is ever mentioned about Scully's education to suggest she should have any particular knowledge about multi-cultural writing styles, the most we know is that she had a decent grasp of German.

Unusual Suspects - S5-E3

Factual error: When two unidentified men who approached Susanne Modeski in the warehouse take out their handguns, they have regular pistols. However, when they start to shoot, continuous fire is heard that could only be produced by an automatic weapon. (00:28:40)

Suggested correction: Fully automatic pistols exist, such as the Glock 18.

Arcadia - S6-E15

Plot hole: Big Mike was attacked by the creature, because his bulb was broken just for a couple of seconds. It would mean that even if something like this happened to somebody else by accident, this person would also be killed by the creature. That would drastically increase the kill rate in the community.

Suggested correction: That was the whole point of the creature, to enforce the HOA rules so that no violations occurred, even by accident. Although prior to the attack, Gene Gogolak describes Big Mike as a weak link that had to be dealt with, so the bulb was just an excuse to attack him.
