Tru Calling (2003)

7 corrected entries in Past Tense

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Luc arrives for his job interview at the Sheriff's while Tru is at the bachelor party. However, the clerk at the hotel told Tru that the party started at 7pm, so we know it's at least that late. It doesn't make much sense for Luc to have a job interview at that hour.

Correction: And? Is there some law that says a job interview can only be conducted during a certain time? Maybe that's when the sheriff or even Luc was available to do the interview.

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Tru thinks that the alcohol has been poisoned, and doesn't realise that it's really the ice until she sees that the stripper has been drinking tequila without ice all night and is fine. But she should have known that the alcohol wasn't poisoned as soon as she found out that one of the men wasn't drinking any alcohol but still died, which happened earlier.

DavidK93

Correction: There was one more person at the party than there were dead. She didn't know who it was and couldn't rule anything out before checking everything.

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Meredith ensures she gets a negative drug test by providing some else's urine sample. Wouldn't they know straight away? It is good medical practice (something that a law firm would most likely want upheld) to check the temperature of the sample (about 32-38C) to ensure the sample is fresh.

Andy Benham

Correction: There are many ways to pass off samples for drug testing. Without seeing the actual procedure, we have to assume that they came up with a plan, since it ended up working.

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Tru goes to the workplace of the "groom" to try to get him to cancel the bachelor party, he thinks that his "fiancee" Robin sent her to spoil his fun. But why would he think that? We found out later that Robin dumped him three months ago and there is no wedding at all. I'm sure Robin is pretty far from caring whether or not he has a bachelor party.

DavidK93

Correction: He has to put up the act that he's still getting married, so what he says is basically BS, but it's still necessary for his plan to work.

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: How did John expect to get away with killing the other five men? He had made the plans for the party and booked the hotel room himself, so even if he disposed of the poisoned ice after the other guys died, his guilt would have been obvious, as the only survivor.

DavidK93

Correction: The poison was said to be untraceable, and with no motive (nobody else knew about the girl), it would all be circumstantial.

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Blake wrote an anonymous letter to John, telling him that was going to go to the police about the girl's death five years earlier. Aside from the fact that it makes little sense for him to warn John like that, why hasn't he then gone to the police in the intervening three weeks? Furthermore, why didn't he become extremely suspicious when John invited the five other men involved in the coverup to a bachelor party, when Blake knew that John knew that one of the guys was planning to take his story to the police?

DavidK93

Correction: Blake wrote the letter to John to try and get John to turn himself in, he never intended to go to the police himself. It made perfect sense to have those exact people at the party since they were all members of the wedding party, which is the typical guest list at a bachelor party.

Past Tense - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Tara the stripper steals the wallets of all five guys who originally died (and possibly of the survivor as well). However, it makes little sense for everyone's wallets to be in the suite's other room, evidently in their jackets. Most men carry their wallets in their pants pockets, especially in the presence of a stripper they'd likely want quick access to their cash. So they wouldn't leave them in their jackets in another room.

DavidK93

Correction: But this was a private stripper, so she gets paid with a check, they weren't expected to shove ones down her panties. Moving their wallets to their jackets makes perfect sense since, when receiving a lap dance, you would want nothing in your pockets to get in the way.

Mistakes

Throughout the series, auxiliary characters are always far too willing to give all kinds of information to Tru. Doctors and registrars constantly give her privileged information about patients and students. Tru is often able to retrieve information like addresses and phone numbers from people's service and utility companies, when normally you must verify your own information before they will even talk to you about your account. Of course there can't be an episode if Tru doesn't quickly find the person who asked for her help, even though she doesn't usually know much more than their name, but it's still a bit conspicuous.
