Common mistakes

New today Stupidity: One character holding another at gunpoint but right next to them, making it easy for the victim to knock the gun away or similarly fight back. You've got a gun - stand 10 feet from them.

Supergirl (2015)

American Alien - S4-E1

New today Other mistake: Supergirl walks into the gallery returning the painting, says "di nada", then takes off straight upwards...presumably blasting her way through the ceiling.

Westworld (2016)

Les Écorchés - S2-E7

New this week Stupidity: The highly trained, elite security officer who tracks Angela down to the backups knows exactly what she is, how dangerous she is, and what she's capable of, but still drops his guard, flirts with her, lets her get up close and personal with him, and as a result gives her a clear window to grab his grenade to blow up herself, him, and all the backups.

General questions

New this week A random movie or TV quote has occurred to me and I can't place it. It's delivered in a faintly Al Pacino way, but I don't think it's him, saying "I will not let...these animals...", then something like "ruin my city", but I only remember the first part. Any clue what it's from?

New today Chosen answer: That's from the movie Bad Boys II (2003), Captain Howard played by Joe Pantoliano says it at the end of this scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw6WIbR1eQw.

Hawaii Five-0 (2010)

E Ho'oko Kuleana - S8-E18

New this month Continuity mistake: Steve chases Jesse into a building. She opens a heavy door to the outside, slowing her down, and as she goes through he's about 10 feet behind her. We then cut to her running along a walkway and he's somehow dropped back another 20 feet.

Lethal Weapon (2016)

Need to Know - S3-E2

New this month Trivia: Cole fakes burning someone by pressing a popsicle to him after saying serious burns first feel cold. He says "it's all science stuff, I mostly read comics books during those classes." Faking a burn with ice is exactly what The Punisher does to someone in the 2004 movie, based on the comics.

Elementary (2012)

The Geek Interpreter - S6-E19

New this month Character mistake: When they've worked out that the kidnappers were changing flood maps, Harlan says he "doesn't get why anyone would mess with flood maps in the first place." Looking at the maps it's blatantly obvious that the reworked flood zone excludes a chunk of land, and given property prices in New York it doesn't take a genius to figure it's at least connected to real estate, insurance, etc. Harlan is demonstrably a genius, and could certainly have figured that out for himself.

Iron Fist (2017)

Citadel on the Edge of Vengeance - S2-E8

New this month Question: Mary talks about her time in Sokovia, a country which featured heavily in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But as far as the MCU has covered, it was only the Avengers who fought there, against Ultron and his army. Mary talks about being special forces and how "Sokovians like knives." What were US troops doing there, and why were they fighting the Sokovians? The altercation with Ultron seemed like everyone would be on the same side, trying to save lives.

Jon Sandys Premium member

New this month Answer: Sokovia is a nation in the Iron Curtain. It is just as likely for a US operative to end up there as any of the other former Soviet nations. There is no reason to believe she was there at the same time as the Avengers. It was likely some form of covert mission there years beforehand.

Iron Fist (2017)

Season 2 generally

New this month Question: How come Davos has two iron fists? The power transfer shouldn't have doubled it.

Jon Sandys Premium member

New this month Answer: In the comics Iron Fist is able to use the power on both hands. There is no reason why Danny shouldn't be able to. Presumably he chooses to only use the one fist at a time, focusing all his power into one hand rather than distributing it between 2.

Trial & Error (2016)

Barcelona - S2-E10

New this month Trivia: Lavinia Peck-Foster warns Josh that witches will return to East Peck "and not the good kind." Kristin Chenoweth, who plays Lavinia, also played Glinda the good witch in the original Broadway run of Wicked.

Iron Fist mistake picture

The Fury of Iron Fist - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Danny and Ward meet Joy in her new place, Ward says "who was it who said I was being childish?" Danny is in the background, holding the folder cover open with his left hand. Shot cuts as he speaks, and his hand's suddenly on the pages with the folder cover hanging down loose.

Preacher (2016)

The Tom/Brady - S3-E8

Kev: What about bees?
Cassidy: Bees. Did you just say bees?
Kev: Yeah, like on Wicker Man. Put a cage around his head and release the bees.
Cassidy: Christ.
Hoover: I vote stabbing.
Cassidy: Look, the Wicker Man is a brilliant film, but we're talking about killing a man here, Kev.
Kev: I know.
Cassidy: No, you don't! Look, where are you even gonna get bees from? What, you have ready access to bees all of a sudden? You a beekeeper now, are you?
Kev: Yeah, I am.
Cassidy: You are?
Kev: Yes.
Cassidy: Beekeeper...? All right. Apologies. I'm sorry. It's actually...it's a brilliant idea, we'll go with the bees. Do you wanna do the bees? Let's do the bees. I'd imagine we need some honey.

Worlds Finest - S1-E18

Cat Grant: All four of you standing there doing nothing, you look like the attractive yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show.

Supergirl (2015)

Worlds Finest - S1-E18

Trivia: Cat says "you look like the attractive yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show." This episode crosses over with The Flash, from the CW (this show was broadcast on CBS). From season 2 onwards Supergirl moved to the CW, to join the other Arrowverse shows.

Supergirl (2015)

Supergirl mistake picture

Battles Lost and Won - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: The sketch that Brainy shows to Winn is meant to be his original sketch that he drew in the previous episode, hence why Winn is so shocked he's somehow got it. But it's slightly different from what we actually saw him draw at the time.

Continuity mistake: The shield design that Winn sketches on the paper changes between him starting to draw, and him showing it to his friend a second later.

Not Kansas - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: As the guy fires the machine gun at Guardian, there's a closeup of bullet casings falling to the ground, but they're not just empty casings, they're fired blank rounds.
