Corrected entry: In this episode Clark keeps having dreams of this girl who moved in Lana's old house, and is in a coma. In one of the dream sequences Clark says he doesn't have powers in the dreams. Yet in a previous dream he's with Lex at his mansion, and Lex takes a Japanese Katana and attacks Clark with it, but Clark blocks the sword with his arm and the sword blade shatters. If he doesn't have any powers in the dreams then shouldn't he have been hurt?
Corrected entry: When Lana is in jail, Clark tells her "Sheriff Adams knows you didn't steal the car and Lex has a lawyer working on the other charges." The police got involved after Lex called them because she stole the till from the Talon. Since Lex is the owner of the Talon, wouldn't it be a lot simpler for Lex to just drop the charges rather than have a lawyer "work on" them?
Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, Lionel Luther pulls the top of the gun back on his gun to chamber a bullet. But he accidentally has his finger squeezing the trigger, causing the gun to slide into place more quickly than intended. I'm not a gun expert, but I think if there was a bullet in the chamber at the time, it would have been fired.
Corrected entry: Tina Greer disguised as Whitney walks down the hallway dressed in marine corps dress blues. His rank was a private first class, yet he had a blood stripe going down his pant legs. You do not receive the blood stripe until you reach corporal. Also the medals were wrong and some missing (i.e. combat action). The marine that comes to the house later and is killed by Tina Greer, had medals that were wrong as well.
Corrected entry: Seth is using a cream made of green (i.e., kryptonite) roses to make himself invisible. At the beginning of the episode, Clark is in the locker room and feels ill from the kryptonite rose cream that Seth is wearing as he beats up the kid who picked on Amy. For the rest of the episode Clark does not feel the effects even though Seth is close enough to him at least two other times in the show. Once after Seth trashes Victoria's room and runs past Lex and Clark and again when Seth tries to drown Victoria in the tub.
Corrected entry: Jor-El tells Clark that he has to return to the Fortress by sundown or face the consequences. Later, Lex tells Chloe that they're in the Yukon, implying that the Fortress of Solitude is in the Arctic. Since the events of this episode take place in the summer, Clark should have had plenty of time to help out in Smallville - the Arctic enjoys permanent daylight during the summer.
Corrected entry: When the bad guy shoots at Clark with the kryptonite bullet, he is facing the other way, then hears the shot, turns around and tries to catch the bullet. This couldn't have happened because a bullet from that kind of rifle is faster than the speed of sound. So the bullet would have hit him in the back before the sound could reach his ears.
Corrected entry: While Clark is inside the semi-truck being delivered to Morgan Edge and Lionel Luthor he manages to remove the kryponite apparently duct taped to his chest. This cannot be possible since he even a small piece of kryptonite (Lana's necklace) was enough for him to trip and fall from several feet away! Imagine a larger chunk like the one they strapped to his chest. He should have been severely weakened by it and the radiation should go through anything in that truck besides lead and the tape used to secure the rock on Clark's chest is not made of lead. His ability to not only have the strength to rip the taped rock off his chest but to then launch it to the far side of the truck should not be possible in view of the nearly immobilizing effects kryptonite has on Clark.
Corrected entry: Season 9, episode 1 "Saviour": When Lois goes back to the train car she meets up with Davis Bloom. After learning she has been missing for three weeks she asks what day it is and he replies it's Friday the 25th. Lois also picks up a newspaper and the date reads Friday the 25th. The train accident happened the night before, the date should read Thursday the 24th.darhug
Corrected entry: Clark and Alicia are in the basement of the school, as part of the plan to trick Alicia, and, as they go to leave, Alicia picks up her bag with Clark right next to her. A few minutes later we find out that Alicia has a kryptonite rock in her bag. She takes it out of her bag to get away from Clark. Clark felt no effects from the rock before that even though he was in such close proximity, and surely a bag would not be enough to protect his from feeling the effects.
Corrected entry: Chrissy is the leader of Spirit Week and is trying to organise it. We see her kiss her boyfriend Troy, and suck the life out of him a few days before Spirit Week. However, Chloe pulls up the file on Troy, and it says his date of death is June 20, 2002. This is highly unlikely, as Spirit Week is put on in the days leading up to homecoming, and homecoming is usually in late September or October.
Corrected entry: When the students become wax their eyes move indicating that they are aware of their surroundings. However, that would mean the Chloe and Lana would have to be unconscious when they were turned into wax and taken from the school, to the fake school, without knowing what had happened.
Corrected entry: Clark is supposed to hide his powers from everyone. When the other swimmer in the final race starts to drown Clark uses his super speed to get him off of the bottom of the pool. Everyone who was in the pool area had their eyes on the drowning kid so somebody should have seen Clark just appear at his side.
Corrected entry: Chloe discovers that the thieves are using kryptonite tattoos to accelerate their metabolism to hyperspeed, allowing them to reach through the space between atoms in solid objects. That's fine, but this acceleration wouldn't be consciously controlled. The thieves might be able to move through any solid objects, but they certainly wouldn't be able to pick anything up or wear clothes just because they wanted to. The metabolism shift would only affect their living cells, not adjacent nonliving ones.
Corrected entry: After Clark fails to prevent the death of Lana he is emotionally devastated and in a highly distraught state wanting only to be close to her as Jonathan pulls Clark away. Given Clark's emotional state and superior strength he would have been able to easily resist this action.
Corrected entry: Clark looks up an old newspaper article on the Internet, citing some of the information to Chloe. Subsequently, and to Clark's surprise, Chloe reveals some additional information she has dug up elsewhere. However, that very same information was also included in the newspaper article he was reading.
Corrected entry: Clark realizes that Amy stole Lex's watch when he sees her wearing it. He and Lex then search Amy's room with her mother and find the watch. Amy wears the watch as a token of her obsession and would not take it off lightly, even if she had returned home and left again.

Corrected entry: Clark goes to Lana's house to give her back the meteor rock necklace. As he is starting to put the necklace on the door knob. Lana calls for Whitney and you hear the "whoosh" of Clark using his super-speed to get away from the door. Kryptonite weakens Clark's powers so he should not have been able to speed away with the exposed necklace right in front of him.
Corrected entry: Clark brings Pete along when he retrieves the DNA sample taken from him so that he can use his DNA to replace his. However, Pete is African American in origin and it would show in his DNA when they try to analyze it. Using Pete as a substitute DNA donor would cause further alarm because Clark is white but the DNA sample which was supposedly taken from him would result in someone of African American in origin.
Corrected entry: When Professor Milton Fine/Brainiac tries to stab Clark with the crystal while they are fighting in the Fortress of Solitude, Brainiac is holding the crystal in his left hand. But when we next see the crystal after Brainiac is impaled, the crystal is in his right hand.
Corrected entry: When Clark (again in his imagined football game) begins to run down field, he knocks 4 defensive players out of his way. These are numbers 82, 72,66, and 55. When he has run many yards, not only does 82 jump and miss him again (from the front) but he jumps over the same 4 players, in the same order they were lined up before, to land in the endzone.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the episode Clark makes a diamond by squeezing a piece of coal with his super-strength and the diamond emerges as a beautifully cut and faceted gem. Diamonds have long been considered to be one of the hardest properties on earth and even with super-strength, could not be honed to this degree by bare hands alone.
Corrected entry: As Clark speeds away to save Chloe, he is in the middle of a play in the championship football game. One of the other team's defenders is in the air in front of him and is going to sack Clark. Clark goes into super speed, runs to the room where Mxyzptlk has Chloe, knocks the knife out of his hand, pushes him away from Chloe, snaps the links on Chloe's cuffs, runs back out to the field to finish the game with nobody, not even the defender directly in front of his face, realizing he was gone. 1.) In order for Clark to do all the stuff he did and get back, with no one noticing, he would have to run faster than the speed of light. At that speed he would have been noticed as he broke the speed barrier several times over. 2.) The wind turbulence from his body cutting through the air that fast would also have been noticed. The wind from a car going by at 30+ mph is easily felt. Clark's speed could have easily sucked everyone off the field in his wake. 3.) Smacking Mxyzptlk's hand and then shoving his chest at that speed would have caused Mxyzptlk to suffer substantial injuries (broke wrist/hand, broken ribs) none of which he shows later on with Lex.
Corrected entry: In this episode, as Clark and his parents are first discussing his new weaknesses, the school bus stops directly in front of his farm. In every other episode, Clark, Pete, and Chloe have to walk together quite a distance to reach the bus stop where they all get on.
Corrected entry: Chloe records Lionel's incriminating statement and then says to him, "I have your entire confession recorded on my voice mail, and the only person that has the password is me. So if I were you, I would reconsider my father's employment situation." But Chloe's statement doesn't quite make sense. If she's the only one who can access that voice mail, then the fastest way for Lionel to prevent it from getting out would not be to indulge her, but rather to kill her as soon as possible. Chloe would only gain control over Lionel with this information if she somehow had it rigged to automatically be released unless she input the password on a regular basis, or something like that. Even Lionel doesn't acknowledge the stupdity of her statement - he says that he doesn't respond to blackmail, and offers her a completely different deal.DavidK93
Corrected entry: When the meteor shower occurs, Lionel is signing the contract to buy the factory. However, it comes up in a later episode that Luthorcorp is only able to buy the factory once Johnathan talks the owner into it, after Lionel got him and Martha adoption papers for Clark, which of course they didn't need until after the meteor shower.
Corrected entry: Lois comments to Clark that they need to meet up with their tour guide in Shanghai, because she will speak fluent Mandarin, which neither of them do. However, there is a specific and well-established Chinese dialect spoken in Shanghai, called Shanghainese, which is neither Mandarin nor Cantonese, and that should be the language that their tour guide would speak.DavidK93
Corrected entry: In the season 3 episode with Justin, the character who can see people's deaths, we are told he was born on the day of the meteor shower. This would make him 4-5 years younger than Clark and Lana (judging by their ages in the pilot), yet he is somehow in high school with them and getting the same homework. How can this be possible?Shay
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the episode, Whitney says that Coach Walt's next game will be his two hundredth win. Later, while talking to the principal, Walt says that he has "been leading this team to victory for twenty-five years." Two hundred wins in twenty-five years is only eight wins per year, not really an impressive record.
00:02:25 - 00:16:50Phoenix
Corrected entry: Clark's x-ray vision reveals that the cemetery is rather oddly set up. There are a dozen headstones visible but only four buried coffins, and three of them don't line up with any headstone. Two of the coffins contain complete skeletons, but the other two are either empty or lead. While the occupants could have decomposed entirely, they are directly next to the younger corpses; usually cemeteries fill in one area and then proceed to another, segregating graves by age.
Corrected entry: In the episode entitled "Run, Season Four: Episode Five," Bart uses Kryptonite on Clark to make sure that he doesn't get followed. This would be impossible because earlier in the show Bart says that this is his very first trip to Smallville, therefore he shouldn't have known what Clark's weakness is.
Corrected entry: The Coach is setting all these fires off completely gutting various departments of the school. Does nobody investigate into these like police or fire accident investigators. When Clark gets his firing-heat-from-the-eye talent later on in season 2 the cops are all over him and those fires were relatively minor in comparison...
Corrected entry: When Clark realises Eric might have aweakness to Kryptonite he goes to get a meteor rock. His mum says "it's not like we have them lying around" so he goes to get the one off Lana's necklace. This would be fine except at the beginning of the episode and throughout most if not all the others it is well established that there are always meteor rocks lying around on the ground, in the water, in fact pretty much anywhere you look.
Corrected entry: From various dates, ages, and bits of information given, we know that, at least in the first episode, everyone (everyone being Clark, Chloe, Lana, Pete, etc) is 15 years old. Do the producers really expect us to believe that they're 15 years old? Clark's played by a 24 year old for one...Phoebe
Corrected entry: Throughout Season 1 the ages/years in school of Clark, Lana, Pete, and Chloe are inconsistent. Supposedly they're all the same age and freshmen, as Pete states in the pilot episode the football team always chooses a freshman guy to be the Scarecrow, which would make them either 14 or 15. However, they're all seen driving (or refer to driving) at least once, which would make them 16, and Sophomores.MoonFaery
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the episode, Pete informs Clark that he missed a Science exam that counts for 50% of his grade. Pete tells Clark that "he flunked." Near the end of the episode, Lana asks Clark what he is doing and Clark tells her he is studying for his make-up "History" exam.wizard_of_gore
