The Simpsons

Midnight Rx - S16-E6

Corrected entry: The towel Flanders wraps around Apu's head changes shape between when it is first applied, and when the customs agent sees Apu. First it is an almost perfectly round shape with no loose ends, then it becomes a more flat shape with a loose end hanging over Apu's shoulder. When Apu is seen inside the police van, the towel is once again in the original shape.

Correction: Since it's a towel, and not an actual turban, it's not a surprise it loses shape and comes apart. And there is time before Apu is thrown into the police van for him, or one of the others, to have rewound it.

All's Fair in Oven War - S16-E2

Corrected entry: It takes two years for Marge's kitchen to be finished, but Bart and Milhouse are still planning their Playdude treehouse as if no time has passed at all. Surely in two years they would have either lost interest or finished making the Playdude treehouse? It only takes them a few weeks to get it up and running once the kitchen is finished.

Correction: Kids often get sidetracked doing something else, and come back to doing what they were doing when they have time.

Midnight Rx - S16-E6

Corrected entry: In this episode Apu says in the car on the way to Canada that he worships several gods. But in a much earlier episode, "Homer's Barbershop Quartet" during a flashback when Apu is asked to change his name he says "It is a great dishonour to my ancestors and my god."

Correction: Apu is a Hindu. Hinduism teaches that there is in fact only one god (Brahman), but that it manifests itself in many different ways, such as Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha etc. Each of these manifestations can be worshipped as a deity, and most Hindus chooses which manifestation to worship (the "personal" aspect of the deity, Ishvara). But ultimately all prayers and sacrifices are directed to the same entity. As we can see through the entire series, Apu worships Ganesha primarily, but he would recognize other forms of god, called Devas, which often translates as "gods". It is not entirely accurate, but that's the problem with translation. So there is nothing wrong with him expressing both a monotheistic and polytheistic wiew of the world.

All's Fair in Oven War - S16-E2

Corrected entry: In the episode "Selma's Choice" Lisa suggests artificial insemination to Selma proving she knows how a baby is made, then why in this episode she goes off screaming after Bart tells her how after reading the Playdude magazines?

Correction: She knows how an egg is fertilised. It doesn't mean she knows how the sperm get there naturally.

Mommie Beerest - S16-E7

Corrected entry: At the start of the episode, the Simpsons celebrate finally paying off their first mortgage. But earlier in "The Computer Wore Menace Shoes", the credit card machine said that Homer was on his fifth mortgage.

Correction: True. They still have four more mortgages to pay.

Xofer

The Seven-Beer Snitch - S16-E14

Corrected entry: For "The Seven-Beer Snitch": During the faked breakout, every prison guard is outside, so who pulls the switch to open the cell doors? All the prisoners were in their cells.

Correction: We see a prisoner pull the lever from inside his cell.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. 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.

Trivia

The Simpsons holds the record for most guest stars; it is also the only non-variety show to have had appearances from three former Beatles (Paul, George and Ringo).
