The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Episode 6 - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When Ford checks the escape pods, Zaphod is holding a shoe up, which you're supposed to asume is the end of Ford's leg. But you can see the inside of the shoe. What's more, when he drops it, you hear Ford fall but don't see him.

Correction: Ford's leg is there, it's just black so it's hard to see. And when Zaphod drops him, he throws him to the side.

Episode 6 - S1-E6

Corrected entry: Arthur and Ford find the ultimate question by taking letters at random from a Scrabble set - spelling 'What do you get if you multiply six by nine' - and the words 'Forty' and 'Two' are already on the board. That is five Ys - and there are only two Ys in a Scrabble set.

Correction: They are playing with Arthur's homemade Scrabble set, not a standard one, so he could add as many of each letter as he wanted.


Episode 3 - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: At the point where someone gets a small bruise on the upper arm, the crew are all in a pile and thrashing about on the floor. There are 5 pairs of legs instead of 4. Arthur is in his pajamas, Zaphod is in orange trousers, Trillion is lying on top of Ford and Ford is too far away for them to be his legs. [The fifth pair of legs belong to the person playing zaphod's third arm - doesn't mean it's not a mistake, but that's where they come from.]

Slartibartfast: I'd much rather be happy than right, any day.
Arthur Dent: And are you?
Slartibartfast: No. That's where it all breaks down, of course.
