Pandora (2019)

Most Likely to Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine) - S1-E5

New this week Continuity mistake: A group of people are standing before a door with full glass inserts. It has a thought processor for access. Once the group defeats the processor, they open the doors. But the doors are now solid wood, not with a glass insert. (00:29:20)

New this month Factual error: Dr. Fielding is dead inside the JPL building. His blood is dripping onto a telegraph key and it is sending perfectly comprehensive Morse Code. The blood drips are too random to do that. (01:13:25)

New this month Other mistake: The girl turns on all generators in the basement of the JPL building. Yet there is no power to the basement where she is. Just flashes of light, highlighting the suspense. There is power everywhere else. (01:23:10)

New this month Suggested correction: The building is severely damaged. There could be several reasons why the power in the basement isn't working.

New this month You have a point. Thanks.

New this month Plot hole: The girl in the basement of the JPL building comes across a locked door with a combination lock. She hits a few buttons and the door opens. There was no way she could know the combination. She is at JPL for the first time in her life and everybody - except her three friends she came with - is dead. (01:23:20)

Dimension 404 (2017)

Cinethrax - S1-E2

New this month Other mistake: There is a countdown on the movie screen. It is then reflected in Dusty's glasses. But the numbers are not reversed in the glasses. (00:41:00)

Dark Phoenix (2019)

Factual error: The space shuttle is spinning due to a stuck thruster. In such a case, the spin would be continually increasing as there is no air resistance. The X-Men shoot out of the thruster and the spin stops. Not factual. They would have needed opposite thrusters to stop it. (00:11:55)

Jessica Jones (2015)

A.K.A A Lotta Worms - S3-E12

Factual error: Jessica receives a call from a prisoner at a State Institution. It shows up on her cell phone as "Unknown." All calls from prisoners are collect calls, and the receiver is asked if they will accept the charges. (00:41:20)

#whocares - S3-E6

Other mistake: There is a shot of the NIH building. The lintel says The National Institutes of Health, the correct name. Cut to a shot supposedly inside the building, where a wall hanging says National Institute of Health. So does a brochure given to an actor. (00:17:00)

The Pattern Revealed - S1-E3

Other mistake: A Mexican pilot based in Ensenada is interviewed. He owns a 1983 Cessna 172 aircraft. When they show it in the air, it is a 2005 Cessna 182 based in San Antonio per the FAA database. A US registry aircraft would not be based in Mexico, owned by a Mexican pilot. (00:11:20)

Hawaii Five-0 (2010)

Hana Mao 'ole ka ua o Waianae - S9-E25

Character mistake: An escaping criminal steals an airplane and proceeds to take off. Let's not even discuss how a non pilot with just flight simulator time and no instruction could even do such a thing, especially starting it by watching a computer. What would never happen is that when confronted with a group of police cars in his way trying to prevent his takeoff, only then does he proceed to advance to full power. All takeoffs are done with full power from the beginning, otherwise you run the risk of never taking off at all. (00:31:40)

The English Job - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: One moment Frankie takes out two shot glasses and a bottle and starts to pour. She pours maybe one-fourth of one glass. The very next shot, both glasses are filled. (00:03:35)

Supergirl (2015)

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - S4-E15

Factual error: While the location of National City is never revealed, it is generally accepted that it is located in the US. But all the helicopters used to fly Lex around are Canadian.

MacGyver (2016)

Seeds + Permafrost + Feather - S3-E17

Factual error: Bozer and for that matter I would assume all of the team went to a spycraft academy. A basic subject in any of such academies is surveillance, including proper techniques to follow and stake out someone. Bozer being so inept at tracking MacGyver's father is inconceivable given their training.

MacGyver (2016)

Seeds + Permafrost + Feather - S3-E17

Plot hole: The team is trying to recreate the movements of a murdered seed vault employee by using his phone's geolocation attributes (compass, accelerometer, altimeter, etc). They are trying to backtrack from the place they found the murdered employee to where he first surprised his killer. They backtrack using the data from the employee's phone, and there is another set of data shown on the computer. But they only have one phone's data to work with. Where did the data presumably from the killer's phone come from? (00:12:50)

Blindspot (2015)

The One Where Jane Visits an Old Friend - S4-E16

Factual error: A newspaper clipping is shown saying a 15 year old boy became the youngest licensed pilot in Connecticut history. It goes on to say he finished his instruction, signed the paperwork, and took off again in a rented plane for his first solo flight. There are many errors here: 1 - The minimum age for even a student pilot's license is 16. For an unpowered glider, it is 14, but such was not the case here. 2 - Further, a student pilot is not a "licensed" pilot. 3 - In order to obtain a private pilot's license, besides all the written tests and practical instruction, the student needs to have completed: 5 hours of solo cross country flying; 1 solo cross country flight of at least 150nm total distance with full stop landings at 3 points; and one segment of at least 50nm between T/O and landings. So he could not have gone on "his first solo flight" after receiving his license. 4 - A new pilot does not have to sign anything. It is the Aviation Examiner that has to sign off the student and give him a temporary license upon satisfactory completion of the private pilot flight test. (00:26:00)

Blindspot (2015)

Frequently Recurring Struggle for Existence - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Rich hacks into a secret web conversation where a meeting is being set up. The meeting is to be at the Travis Hotel, Room 319, 3 PM. Shortly thereafter, talking about the finding, they say that the meeting is going to be at the Caris Hotel. (00:16:10)

Project Daedalus - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Michael invites Spock to play chess. She presents a board with three levels. Later, when the game is underway, the board has seven levels by the addition of four smaller boards. (00:17:50 - 00:21:25)

Steps Challenge - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: In the steps challenge board, the first take of the board has more steps shown that the subsequent take. (00:05:00)

Hawaii Five-0 (2010)

Ai no i ka 'ape he mane'o no ko ka nuku. - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: Jerry is briefing the team. He says that HPD processed "the van" and found... This is the first mention that HPD even found a van. They were looking with keys found on the victim to see if nearby vehicles would fit them, but there was no prior mention that they had found any vehicle at all. (00:08:50)

E'ao lu'au a kualima - S9-E17

Factual error: A defibrillator is needed immediately. Adam runs to a storage closet and rummages around for a while, and finally finds a defibrillator deep under other things. This medical clinic is a public place. No one would ever bury an automated external defibrillator (AED) under other items in a storage room. AEDs would be visible and accessible for just such emergencies, as instructed on the devices themselves. (00:35:35)
