The Karate Kid Returns - S6-E14

Corrected entry: The episode's plot hinges on Randy retaliating against a fellow student for refusing to write a retraction concerning a defamatory article he wrote about him for the school newspaper, after which Randy writes an article explaining the error of his vengeful ways. Both aforementioned articles are full of biased commentary, with the former also being an example of yellow journalism. The first rule of journalism outside of gossip publications such as TMZ is to never publish biased or defamatory articles, and as such the editor of the school newspaper wouldn't run either article, nor would the school administration tolerate them being printed.

Correction: You think that a high school newspaper follows the exact same standards of the New York Times? These are just teenagers writing for a high school paper. There is plenty possibility for high school politics and teenage cattiness to play a part. As well, both students could simply be writing commentary pages as opposed to news articles. Commentary writers are not bound by the ethics against biased writing - that's what they are there for.


Whose Car Is It Anyway? - S6-E6

Corrected entry: Tim hot wires Jill's car after she takes the keys. The car starts right up after a few wires are crossed. It's a manual shift car so the clutch would of had to been pressed down for the engine to crank over or else the car doesn't do anything.

Correction: Many cars with a manual transmission allow you to start the car without pressing on the clutch, as long as the transmission is in neutral.


Insult To Injury - S6-E21

Corrected entry: When Tim gets on the steam roller, he is wearing the arm sling. Next shot, and for the remainder of the scene, it is gone.

Correction: While Tim was on the steam roller, he took off the sling.
