X-Men

Slave Island - S1-E7

Factual error: When Professor X is calling Moira McTaggart in Scotland, the phone number he uses is shown to have only dialed the exit code of 011, followed by a fictional seven-digit number with a 555 prefix. Since he is calling from the United States, he would have to dial the country code (44) and area code for the right part of Scotland. Plus UK numbers at that time had at least 9 numbers. (00:08:20)

Sanctuary: Part 2 - S4-E7

Factual error: When Rogue attempts to correct the space shuttle's flight path, she has to let go because of the intense heat due to re-entry. Indeed, a temperature as hot as a shuttle in re-entry (upwards of 3,000° F) would have completely melted through her gloves, yet when she lets go, they only have a little smoke coming off them.

Sanctuary: Part 1 - S4-E6

Proteus: Part 1 - S4-E4

Factual error: When Moira is calling her ex-husband Joe in Edinburgh from the Blackbird phone, she dials a typical U.S. seven-digit phone number (it looks like she dials 555-1238). However, even assuming she wouldn't be required to dial an exit code from the Blackbird, a typical Edinburgh phone number would have more digits, along the lines of +44-131-XXX-XXXX. (00:16:50)

The Cure - S1-E9

Factual error: The commercial airplane that Rogue is piggy-backing to Muir Island has no overhead storage bins. Just a shelf running the length of the cabin with luggage stacked on top, which is not something that the FAA or any other national aviation authority would permit. (00:09:20)

The Cure - S1-E9

Factual error: When Rogue is flying the dome up to the top of the mansion, she is flying at a diagonal angle and using a rope to tow the dome behind her. On its way up from the ground, the dome is also at a diagonal angle, when its mass along with the force of gravity and the slow speed at which Rogue is moving dictate that the dome should swing like a pendulum.

Descent - S5-E12

Descent - S5-E12

Factual error: When Dr. Essex is walking through the museum with Charles Darwin, a fully-assembled dinosaur fossil is on display. This scene takes place in London in 1859, but the first ever dinosaur to be displayed didn't occur until 1868 in Philadelphia. (00:03:55)

Bloodlines - S5-E6

Factual error: When Rogue tricks the Friends of Humanity into firing on their own helicopters, two men are shown to be immediately parachuting from the helicopter at an altitude of at most, 100 feet. This wouldn't really be possible because jumping from such a low altitude would require the person to immediately deploy the parachute, which in this case would cause the parachute to be torn to shreds by the helicopter's rotor. If a person jumped from that altitude and deployed the parachute after free falling enough to clear the rotor, they would have fallen too far for the parachute to have been effective in allowing them to land safely, if the parachute even opened before they hit the ground.

Love in Vain - S4-E14

Factual error: Wolverine is able to call the mansion from a payphone without depositing any money, nor is he shown to be using a prepaid phone card or making a collect call. (00:09:40)

The Lotus and the Steel - S4-E13

Factual error: When Wolverine tears off the man's car door, he does so by putting his hands inside the spaces between the car door and the car's body. Those spaces are way too narrow for a person to fit their fingers inside. (00:03:25)

Sanctuary: Part 2 - S4-E7
