7 mistakes in season 2

(0 votes)

Bambi - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the song "Ace of Spades" is playing, we see the camera pan up to the singer. You see the studio lights reflected in his sunglasses, as well as part of the camera.

Time - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Neil starts to sneeze, he carefully puts his hands close to his nose to give the impression that the green jet is coming from his nose. However, in one shot, just before the guys bag him we see the jet appearing from his hand while his hand is several centimetres from his nose.

Sick - S2-E5

Factual error: During "Jester Balowski's Medieval Torture Hour," Balowski grabs the guys arm and bends it the way arms are supposed to bend, yet you hear a breaking noise.

David Mercier

Nasty - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Rik jumps in his bed with the magazine and the circular saw comes out, watch closely and you can see the bed and sheets are already in two halves.

Time - S2-E4

Other mistake: Just as Brian Damage says, "Oh, weren't ya?" to Neil, you can see the shadow of Neil's mother on the front door, awaiting her cue to come in.

Nasty - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When the vampire is shaving himself in the toilet, the reflection in the mirror of his shaving cream, clothes and gloves is almost, but not quite, identical to his movements. The empty suit in the mirror and the visible part in front of it were shot separately by copying the other part's movements as closely as possible, as the surviving raw footage can prove. It's hard to see, but there is a small difference between the motion of the hands.

Boring - S1-E3

Rik: Hey guys, wouldn't it be AMAZING if all this money was real?
Vyvyan: Rik, that is the single most predictable and BORING thing anyone could ever say whilst playing Monopoly.

Bambi - S2-E1

Trivia: It's obvious that they just walked into the train station and started filming, because all throughout the sequence people are staring at them.

Boring - S1-E3

Question: What is it exactly that Rik reads from the paper? The thing that Neil repeats that brings the little devil to them? I'm assuming it's a poorly pronounced version of something that was in the papers at that time, but I can't think of anything that fits it.

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: It wasn't referring to anything real, just that the government's bureaucratic naming, The Guardian's mangled spelling or Rick's bad pronounciation resulted in the unlikely word "Footumch" being spoken.
