Corrected entry: Just after Hurley throws away his stash and everyone comes to get the food from the jungle (balloon), you see the faces of the people running. There is one man slightly to the side running to the food. This is Boone. He is already dead in the first season after getting shot.
Corrected entry: When Sawyer was playing the tape to the group showing where Juliet was still working for the others; she and Jack walked up and she told them to turn the tape over and play it. On the other side it had her instructions and what they were planning to do in the next two days. She said she told Jack what the others were forcing her to do and what they had planed and when. However, earlier Richard was asking Ben if he wanted him to deliver the tape with the new instructions for Juliet and Ben was telling him he already did the instructions and was fixing to ask Tom where it was when Locke interrupted him by walking into camp carrying his dead father. Plus there was no recorder there for Ben to tape instructions and even if he did, there was no way Juliet could have known what was on the opposite side of the tape for Locke had took it and gave it to Sawyer.jsbuchanan
Corrected entry: The numbers that appear everywhere in the show actually originated on a completely different TV show. Veronica Mars. A show about a teenage detective juggling school, boyfriends, and her father's investigation practice, where she helps out. In one of the episodes, Veronica takes a fortune cookie's fortune and puts it against her vanity mirror with the numbers showing - 4 8 15 16 23 42.Knever
Corrected entry: In Charlie's flashbacks aboard the aeroplane, we see he goes into first class to snort the heroin. As the turbulence hits, he leaves and nearly gets hit by the trolley, before buckling himself in - still in first class. Therefore when the plane goes down, Charlie should've been in the first class section of the plane and consequently shouldn't be alive and on the beach with the rest of the survivors.Hovis63
Corrected entry: Ethan is inserting a needle intoClair's abdomen, a needle that large inserted into the amniotic sac at that late in a pregnancy would rupture the sac and the baby would have to be delivered. We know that Claire didn't deliver for 2 weeks after she was returned to the beach.Boobra
Corrected entry: Factual errors: when we see the statue of the Egyptian statue, it is incorrectly depicted on several levels. First, Taweret was never shown as a human with an animal head, like the gods Anubis, Thoth, Horus, etc., were. She was always carved as an upright, unclothed pregnant hippopotamus. Second, even using artistic license because this is a fictional show, someone should have done some research and realize that Taweret is a goddess and as such, she would not be wearing a kilt because that was only for male gods. Also, no god or goddess would be wearing footwear of any kind but if you look close, you can see that the statue is wearing something that look like Greek or Roman sandals. The only thing that the makers of the show got right is that Taweret is carrying ankhs.
Corrected entry: Towards the end of season five, they talk about how they need to get the nuke to destroy the energy at the swan. However, according to Newton's conservation of energy, energy can neither be created nor destroyed. So blowing up this pocket of energy with a bomb is futile, as it just wouldn't work. However, this is a major plot device, and Farraday, who is a very 'intelligent' physicist, is the one to come up with this pointless idea.
Corrected entry: Desmond claims that he was saving Charlie's life by saving Claire from drowning by jumping in before he does. However, if Desmond had not had a flash to witness the event of him dying, Charlie wouldn't have known it was happening either as he followed Desmond to the event. As we find out later, they were a mile inland, so there's no way Charlie could have found out until a long time after Claire had drowned.Life700
Corrected entry: In the London pub, Desmond refers to the barman as the "bartender", a word never used in England. He also gets a drink without paying, leaving money on the bar when he leaves - this may be the American way, but in British pubs you always pay when you receive your drink.
Corrected entry: They're often trying to figure out who is on the plane, but it would seem pretty easy to determine just by asking questions about innocuous things, such as the layout of Sydney airport, what food/movies they had on the plane, a description of the check-in counter, etc. There are probably hundreds of possible questions that someone who wasn't there wouldn't know.Japan-Games
Corrected entry: Fairly near the beginning of this episode, just after the guy gets sucked into the engine, in the next shot, where the camera cuts to Jack caring for Claire, look carefully above the engine in the background just before it explodes. You can see what looks like a black cloud of smoke fly down to the engine and then fly up really fast - within split seconds it explodes. It is best seen in slow motion. Without wanting to give too much away about the rest of the series, this cloud of smoke appears at least once more during the series (in the finale) and is apparently linked with the 'monster' in the jungle - although all will be explained in series 2.Sam Johnson
Corrected entry: During the 'flash forward' when the Asian woman is having her baby, the doctor suddenly comes in and orders the nurse helping her to 'just give her something for the pain'. A doctor would never do that. A nurse is not allowed to give a patient medication without a strict, specific drug order from a doctor or Physician Assistant. In fact, a nurse would probably lose her license if she did.
Corrected entry: Season 4, "The Economist" - When Sayid looks over at Naomi's body, her eyes are closed. However, later on he walks over, bends down, and gently closes her eyes himself. I know things are freaky on this island and dead people might not necessarily stay that way (wouldn't be the first time someone we thought was dead suddenly showed up), but I doubt Naomi's eyes popped back open on their own.
Corrected entry: When Jack is playing cards with Sawyer, Sawyer deals too many cards to Jack. He deals him two, and then deals him at least one more. Neither said anything and they were going to play with them, and they're both au fait with the rules, so it's not a character mistake.SexyIrishLeprechaun
Corrected entry: Boone's job appears to change halfway through this episode. In the pilot he tells Jack that he's a licensed lifeguard. This still seems to be true at the start of White Rabbit, because he is the one who swims out to save Joanna. But later in the same episode, he mentions that he runs a business, which is elaborated on later: he tells Locke about his mother's wedding supply chain stores. The lifeguard job is never mentioned again.
Corrected entry: At the very end of the episode, when the passengers are boarding the doomed flight in a flashback, there is a shot of Sawyer walking down one of the aisles. If you look closely, you can see his bag bumps someone on the shoulder, and they turn around to glare at him. It's Sayid, sitting on the aisle seat of the left section of seats. However, not too long later, we see a shot of Sayid sitting down in 'his' seat, but he is now sitting on the aisle seat in the MIDDLE section of seats.
Corrected entry: During the second half of the Season 1 Finale "Exodus", Hurley is rushing to the airport to make his flight. When Hurley's car suddenly breaks down on the way to the airport, there is a close-up of the dashboard, and in clear green numbers we see "42KM 23C 15KPH speed". The dashboard display then quickly switches to flash the green numbers "42 KM 8/4KPH (8 changes into 4). When Hurley makes it to his gate it is number 23.
Corrected entry: Season 2, Episode 3: While Jack and Locke are watching the "Orientation" film down in the underground pod, the doctor in the film mentions that the clock must be reset before it reaches 108 minutes. "108" is the exact total of all the "Lotto Numbers" added together, which ironically are also the numbers used to program the clock. 4 + 8 + 15 + 16 + 23 + 42 = 108.
Corrected entry: In the final episode of season one, as Hurley runs to catch the doomed flight, he runs past a girl's soccer team. The numbers on their backs are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 - the same numbers that Hurley used to win the lottery, that are printed on the side of the hatch and that were broadcasted from the island itself.
Corrected entry: Kate catches Claire's baby as he is being born and hands him straight to Claire, all gooey and 'newborn', but the baby has no umbilical cord. There was no time for Kate to tie off and cut the cord, nor a time-lapse or scene-change that would have allowed this to happen.
Corrected entry: Locke had been in the wheelchair for 4 years, then miraculously, he is able to walk again after the plane crash. After 4 years in the wheelchair, his leg muscles would have deteriorated so badly, his legs would not have been able to even support his own weight, let alone walk or jog.
