The No-Brainer - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Peter tells Olivia that the brain-melting computer program is being downloaded at her apartment "right now", which suggests a computer is already on and the program is running. But the next scene is Olivia's niece Ella turning her computer on for the first time.

Correction: There's no evidence that the two shots are sequential. It's not a continuity error, the scene in Olivia's apartment just doesn't begin after the scene where Olivia talks to Peter, it starts just before.

The Equation - S1-E8

Corrected entry: In the scene where Ben's father is showing the video of Ben playing the piano, he fast forwards to "Two weeks later", when Ben is composing his own music, but Ben is wearing the same shirt from the start of the video, which was nine months ago.

Correction: I don't see the mistake? People have been known wear the same t-shirt, even the same outfit every now and then. I admittedly, once wore the same pair of jeans and my favorite t-shirt for 4 days in a row.

XIII

The Ghost Network - S1-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene where the team first arrive to investigate the bus, the shot where the team is walking towards the bus is used twice. The first time the shot is used Broyles is speaking and the audio syncs with the video. The second time the shot is used Olivia is speaking, but you can see that Olivia's mouth is not moving and Broyles' mouth is.

Correction: I think your TV or whatever this was watched on is lagging because I re-watched this episode and could not find this mistake.

The Same Old Story - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Dr. Bishop is using the special camera to capture the images on the dead woman's retina, he tells everyone to put on their goggles to protect them from the flashes. Once they find the image they need, everyone takes off their goggles, yet the camera is still flashing, and there are no ill effects.

Correction: Once they find the image they need, they are not looking directly at the flashes. It's like not looking directly at someone welding without wearing welding goggles. If you don't look directly at the welding flash, you don't have a problem, but can get retinal burn if you look directly at it unprotected.

Safe - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Raul Lugo gets stuck halfway between the wall and is alive for several seconds before Loeb kills him. In reality, the wall would crush his internal organs and he would die instantly. No need for Loeb to shoot him.

Brad Premium member

Correction: That's like saying "in reality" while referring to the transporter on Star Trek. The fact is we know nothing about how this fictional technology works so we don't know what would happen. It's possible his body simply merged with the wall and it took a while for it to shut down.

Unleashed - S1-E16

Corrected entry: When they get the idea to poison the larvae inside Charlie, Peter says that the poison killed the larvae. Yet, later, when they do the sonogram, the larvae are still in his stomach.

Brad Premium member

Correction: The poison killed the larvae, it didn't dissolve them.

The No-Brainer - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Right before the second body is found, Olivia interviews Luke Dempsey. After the second body is examined, while Peter leaves with the hard drives, Olivia says that she's going to interview Luke. She just did that.

Brad Premium member

Correction: With the discovery of a second body and Luke Dempsey is the prime suspect, why can't Olivia interview him again?

XIII

The Transformation - S1-E13

Corrected entry: Nina Sharp states that the glass disk found in John's body will implode when the host dies. However, the disk found in Marshall Bowman is just fine, despite the fact that Bowman has been dead for quite some time.

Brad Premium member

Correction: By this point, it's become clear that Nina Sharp doesn't always tell the complete truth.

JC Fernandez

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The contagion used on Flight 627 was apparently so contagious that every passenger became infected in seconds. However, when John is infected with the contagion, Olivia, Peter, Walter, and the other doctors are able to tend to to him without getting infected.

Brad Premium member

Correction: Actually, they stated that they had lowered the guy's body temperature enough to make the infection spread really slowly, so if the characters were in the room with him, they wouldn't be affected if the infection could only travel so fast.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The 'German language', which the people on the plane at the beginning speak, sounds very much like the actors come from Eastern Europe. The old couple and the flight attendant speak German with a heavy accent. The flight captain's German is grammatically wrong and also doesn't sound like he is a real German. Are there no unemployed German wannabe-actors in Hollywood? And the Danish guy doesn't even try to speak German when most of the Danish people speak at least a bit of German. He just says "I'm from Denmark". Chances are big he also could have tried to say that in German.

Correction: My dad speaks German. Low German. My stepmother speaks German.but they are completely different dialects and accents. Eastern European German may sound different if the person lived most of their life in East Germany, which had a Soviet occupation for almost 50 years. There's a strong Russian influence on language for Germans from East Germany. Define a 'real' German. "Most" Danes speaking a little bit of German doesn't mean they all do, just as most Canadians aren't bilingual in English and French, even though it's officially a bilingual country.

The Ghost Network - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Dr. Bishop asks Peter to play him Bach's Mass in A minor on the piano. There is no Mass in A minor. The Mass is in B minor.

Correction: Doctor Bishop has shown himself to have memory problems on several occasions. While a genius in many fields of academic and scientific endeavour, there's no indication that his interest in music is any more than a casual one. He simply remembered incorrectly, which is not grounds for a mistake.
