Corrected entry: The bedroom door to the kids' room is always locked, but when the mother wants to open the door, she does so without a key. Later when the little ghost-clearance expert lady wants to go in, she finds the door locked and the father has to unlock the door with the key.

Corrected entry: During Daniel's match with Barnes, Barnes kicks Daniel in the groin and the referee warns him that one more illegal move will get him immediately disqualified. After the warning, Barnes sucker punches Daniel in the back of the head. This should have gotten Barnes an immediate disqualification but the ref lets the match continue.

Corrected entry: In the chapter, "Prince's tale", there's a memory in which Snape and Lily are talking about the friends of each other (the memory begins with Snape saying "I thought we were friends"). In this memory, Lily says that James has saved Snape's life, but Snape says that he was only saving himself. Some lines before, Snape makes it clear that he doesn't know that Lupin is a werewolf. However, in "Prisoner of Azkaban", Lupin said (and Snape himself) that after James saved Snape's life, he knew that Lupin was a werewolf. So this memory doesn't match - if James already saved Snape's life, he should've known that Lupin was a werewolf. (And that's why he would say that James was only saving himself).

Corrected entry: Near the end of chapter thirty, it says that the only people left in the room of requirement are Harry, Ginny, Mrs Weasley, Lupin, Fred, George, Bill and Fleur. But on the next page Percy (who had recently entered the room) says sorry to Mr Weasley, but Mr Weasley had left the room along with all the other people.

Corrected entry: Even if the Warden could frame Crewe for the murder of Caretaker for not throwing the game, the Warden has no jurisdiction on what sentence Crewe would serve or how long, so his threat of 25 years in prison is pointless.

Corrected entry: When all the teachers are gathered in a room and the killer calls them, he taunts them about his crimes before saying "click" and then hanging up. However, this is impossible as both killers in the film (Principal Peters and Miss Mumsley) are present in the room when this person makes the phone call.

Corrected entry: When John is on the roof trying to radio for help he connects with a woman from an emergency help line, why does the woman not believe him when he tells her about the huge emergency? Not in a million years would a person from the emergency help line not believe you when you call them with an emergency, even if it sounded like a child making a prank call ordering a fire-truck to his friend's house and they could hear the child giggling while he's saying it, they would still have to send someone out. John is screaming at the woman for help and she still doesn't believe him.

Corrected entry: Luc arrives for his job interview at the Sheriff's while Tru is at the bachelor party. However, the clerk at the hotel told Tru that the party started at 7pm, so we know it's at least that late. It doesn't make much sense for Luc to have a job interview at that hour.

Corrected entry: It seems strange that Tru doesn't at any point entertain the possibility that Luc could be the killer. After all, he was the last person left in her apartment before she went to sleep. And if she even thought that she could have done it herself, why does it not occur to her that her boyfriend killed the ex-boyfriend who was quasi-stalking her?

Corrected entry: After Tru talks to her ex-boyfriend on the roof, she returns to her apartment and asks Luc where everybody went. But before the ex-boyfriend even showed up, everybody was leaving the party and Tru was saying goodbye to them as they left. Then she went to the roof and had her five minute chat with the ex. Why should she be even remotely surprised that everybody has made it out of the apartment by the time she gets back?
16th Dec 2003
Corrected entry: The second time the day happens, Amy comes driving up right after the near-accident, because she "saw Derek's car." Since Tru's actions didn't change the timeline throughout the car chase, that means that Amy should have shown up at the same time during the original day as well. In that case, she would have witnessed Derek cause the crash that killed Adam and Jen, and there shouldn't have been a mystery.

Corrected entry: Why does Lindsay know about what happened with Candace and Ronnie after graduation, while Tru doesn't? Firstly, Tru would have much more reason to have found out in the first place, since Candace was her best friend and Ronnie was her crush. Secondly, even if we accept that Lindsay found out before Tru did, how is it that Lindsay never mentioned it in five years?

Corrected entry: Around the middle of the episode, Paige's father tells Tru that all Paige really remembers about her molestation is "the moon and stars," which doesn't make sense to anybody. Towards the end of the episode, Tru looks across the street and sees that Paige's neighbor has a large stained-glass window of the moon and stars, and immediately realizes that the neighbor is the one who molested Paige. Paige is already there, because her near-death experience opened up the memory for her. But why didn't anybody figure this out before? The moon and stars window has been in plain sight to Paige and her father for twenty years, and evidently Paige has been ranting about "the moon and stars" for some time now.
21st Jan 2004
Corrected entry: Tru's endeavors to convince Harrison of her abilities don't make much sense, for two reasons. Firstly, it's ridiculous that Harrison doesn't already believe her. She once slipped him the exact card he needed minutes later in his card game, and she convinced a man to wear a bulletproof vest on the day that Harrison's girlfriend was planning to frame him for shooting the man dead. Secondly, why would he suddenly become convinced just because Tru told him when it was going to start snowing? She once told him exactly when it was going to rain, and weather forecasters do the same thing all the time anyway.

Corrected entry: Stallone uses the wax layer from a drinks carton to place over the keypad to his cell so he can get the 4 digit code, all well and good but the wax sheet is not numbered, so when it is removed he would have no idea how it was fitted on the keypad, leaving him with multiple combinations. When he does escape he cannot see the keypad from his cell and is just using blind luck to key in the code.
