Season 5 generally

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.

Correction: Who said this statue was Taweret? It's not stated in the show; it's not even certain to be of Egyptian origin.

Season 5 generally

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.

Correction: We do not know what kind of energy is in the pocket, and thus we cannot know why Faraday believes detonating the bomb will neutralize it. It cannot be concluded, with certainty, that his intention is to "blow up" the pocket of energy. Perhaps he believes, for some reason, that the nuclear blast will somehow neutralize this pocket of energy, rather than destroying it. Plus, we have repeatdly seen violations of the laws of physics on the island.

Some Like It Hoth - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Hurley and Miles drive into the construction area of the Orchid Station (1977), all the vehicles are from the 60's or 70's, but a backhoe made around 2004 is present.

Correction: Research will tell you a lot. For example: the excavator used in episode 5x13 was constructed in 1977, so it's not a mistake. The 1977 Case 580C Loader Backhoe: http://buildandfarm.com/show.php?id=3&p=10&page=1&srt=make%20ASC and http://www.equipmenttraderonline.com/find/listing/1977-CASE-580CCK-93932674 and http://www.machinerytrader.com/listings/detail.aspx?ohid=6682086.

Benjamin Linus: Your flight crashed on September 22,2004. Today is November 29th. That means you've been on this island for sixty-nine days. And yes, we do have contact with the outside world, Jack. That's how we know that during those sixty-nine days, your fellow Americans re-elected George W. Bush, Christopher Reeve has passed away, Boston Red Sox won the World Series.
[Jack begins to laugh.]
Benjamin Linus: What?
Jack Shepard: [Still laughing.] If you wanted me to believe that, you probably should have picked somebody else besides the Red Sox.
Bejmain Linus: No, they were down 3-0 against the Yankees in the Championship Series and then won eight straight.
Jack Shepard: [Skeptically.] Sure, sure. Of course they did.
[Ben turns on a VCR.]
Joe Buck: Back to Foulke... Red Sox fans have longed to hear it! The Boston Red Sox are world champions! A clean sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Red Sox celebrate in the middle of the diamond here at Busch Stadium.



When Hurley is at the new house, after his mom hurts her ankle, he reaches into the car window to get the cell phone. When he begins to dial, the cameraman's arm moving about is reflected in the back chrome of the side view mirror.



The character Sun was created specifically for Yoon-jin Kim, after she auditioned for the role of Kate but the writers felt she was not right for the role.
