The Rabbit Hole - S1-E2

Factual error: Alice and Kate's little reunion underwater is disrupted by policemen that fire at them, and one of the shots reaches the transport truck, ignites it and makes it explode. The scene is baffling; forgetting the complete disregard for fellow policemen in the vehicle, how would bullets have enough strength to penetrate into an armored truck deep underwater, reach a critical weak point from that angle (the truck is upright, they should be barely get to shoot the roof of it) and still underwater cause inside the completely immersed vehicle a spark that would ignite fuel and make the whole truck explode? (00:31:45)

The Boys picture

Cherry - S1-E2

Other mistake: The whole point of the "ass bomb" is that Translucent's skin is impenetrable, no way into his body except, as they realise, through his ass. So when the bomb goes off, the blast should be entirely contained within his impenetrable skin, leaving a flesh-bag of destroyed internal organs. Instead he explodes into mush. They even say afterwards his skin won't burn off so they've got to dispose of it somehow.

Suggested correction: You don't know exactly how his skin works. It could be the skin is able to protect the body from the outside because of it's impenetrable properties, able to contract when something impacts it, absorbing any impact. From the inside however that property could not be working and the skin cells are torn apart but not destroyed.

Character mistake: At the police station when Damien Asante is reading the information on the computer about the hit and run, he says "On February 25, 2015 Christy Markus and her son were struck by a car. The driver kept going." If you look at the computer screen, the date of incident says February 25, 2018. (00:30:00)

Another Life picture

Across the Universe - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: In the restaurant after their daughter finishes talking to Niko, Erik turns the tablet device around and sets it on the table to talk to Niko. From his perspective, he is looking down at the screen. But in the other shots from Niko's perspective, where he is a life sized hologram, his figure is shown looking up and meeting her eyes. But from her perspective it should look like he's looking down at the table.
