Homer Defined - S3-E5

Corrected entry: 40 seconds pass during the time period when the announcer says there is 1 minute left and 30 seconds left. Also between the announcer saying there is a half-minute left and 15 seconds left, 25 seconds pass. (00:08:10 - 00:09:20)

Yoshi

Correction: It's normal movie practice to show sequentially events which are intended to be in parallel (the alternative is a very ugly split screen). Between the announcements for one minute and 30 seconds left, Homer has a flashback and during the countdown from 30 to 15, we see the TV announcer explaining who will survive and who will not. The time in Homer's reality is correct.

Homer Defined - S3-E5

Corrected entry: In the shot after Smithers asks Mr. Burns where his radiation suit is, Marge's knitting supplies have disappeared. (00:05:30 - 00:06:35)

Yoshi

Correction: Marge is no longer holding her knitting but she's been out of shot for easily long enough to have put them down or even put them away.

Homer Defined - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When Homer is sleeping in Sector 7G, the illumination of the room has changed. (00:03:50)

Yoshi

Correction: True but this is a completely new scene, Homer could simply have turned the lights off.

Homer Defined - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When Smithers shows Mr. Burns the picture of his dog, he is standing to the right of him. Immediately after, he is standing in front of the TV monitors. (00:03:10)

Yoshi

Correction: They're both in front of the TV monitors. We see Smithers from two different angles and he has time to move when Mr Burns is in shot so there's nothing unusual about this scene.

Homer Defined - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When the meltdown is in progress Smithers says that Homer was hired under Project Bootstrap, yet in the episode titled "I Married Marge" we see that it was Mr.Burns himself that hired Homer.

Correction: Although Homer is hired by Mr Burns in a later episode (when Bart visits the powerplant) Homer is fired by the twins' dad. He is then rehired under that thing Smithers said.

Homer Defined - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When the school bus stops at Springfield Elementary, it is visible that the bus stops on the sidewalk. (00:02:20)

Yoshi

Correction: Otto is driving. It is not impossible or a mistake for them to be parked on the sidewalk.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage.
