Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Factual error: When Chief Wiggum opens the revolver's chamber, there's 5 rounds with one open slot. In the next shot, we see the reverse end of the chamber and it's drawn in such a way to indicate those 5 rounds all have bullets in them still, meaning the empty slot is from when Maggie shot Mr. Burns. But revolvers don't eject spent shells automatically and no one handled the gun after it dropped on the floor. So the empty casing should have still been in there when Wiggum opens it up for the first time.

Radioactive Man - S7-E2

Plot hole: The director of Radioactive Man says to Bart "we found our new Fall Out Boy. That's what I would say if you weren't an inch too short. NEXT!" But Milhouse is the new Fall Out Boy, and he's blatantly smaller than Bart. Bart was standing right next to Milhouse, so the director could see the difference.
