Super Robot Wars V

New today Other mistake: One of the openings Mightgaine uses facing robotic opponents is "A Super AI will lose to a regular one." It's missing a "never", or something along those lines, because as shown in many other lines he and his allies from the Brave series use, Mightgaine calls himself a Super AI, and is saying that he won't lose to inferior programs.

The Million Dollar Bond Robbery - S3-E3

New today Factual error: The stock footage of the Queen Mary coming back from the US and docking in Southampton is not in black and white, and it certainly is more recent. The crowd wears colorful clothes, no hats, neon lights are used for the building illumination, and the cars parked are of modern design. It's a post-WW2 world, not 1936. (00:38:40)

The Million Dollar Bond Robbery - S3-E3

New today Factual error: As the title of the episode says, it's a million dollar robbery, in bonds. Problem is, as seen when the bag is loaded, the million is in 50 dollar bonds, which was the lowest single denomination for Liberty Bonds. 20,000 big bond notes would never fit in that bag, and would weigh a lot! Funny mistake, considering that the reality of 'weight' of a sum is a problem in many movies dealing with regular dollar bills, but bonds would have much fewer limitations as for the denomination of a single note (could have been a pile of bonds worth $10,000 or $5,000).

How Does Your Garden Grow? - S3-E2

New today Other mistake: After Katrina is arrested, Mr. Delafointaine is reading about it on the newspaper. The newspaper is dated Thursday 23rd May 1935. The date is correct, the whole investigation does happen in a day, starting around 10 AM; Poirot is greeted by the couple with "Good afternoon" and to imagine that by the time he gets to their home Katrina's news (complete with picture of the arrest!) is already in a late edition of the newspaper (a local one, at that) is a bit too much of a stretch, with all the steps taken for the investigation, everything in broad daylight.

How Does Your Garden Grow? - S3-E2

New today Factual error: Poirot and Miss Lemon go to the riding school to meet the solicitor of the deceased. Parked in the road right as the camera pans, and featured for a few seconds, is a car Morris Eight series II, a 1938 model while the episode (as made abundantly clear by the fair invite and banner) is set in 1935.

How Does Your Garden Grow? - S3-E2

New today Continuity mistake: Poirot asks Dr. Sims "So the Delafontaines, they were dependant" etc., the doctor's right hand changes position between shots, and the hand positions keep alternating between the two versions depending on the camera angle (an item suddenly appears in his hand when Miss Lemon mentions the living relatives, too).

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New today Plot hole: Can't fault this massive plot hole to the adaptation, but to the source material; the culprit (forgetting the stupidity of writing an incriminating letter detailing the plan to murder someone, and put it in a desk he shares with her) since there are people outside the room that are about to enter, tears the letter in 3 neat vertical strips, rolls them, puts them in the vase on the mantlepiece, and then opens the side door to slip away...instead of simply pocketing the letter and going through that same door. Nobody was going to search him or anything and could have burned it, torn it into confetti, anything, later. It takes way way longer to do what he did, which needed him to stay there in the room increasing the chances of being found out. And of course he and his accomplice do not retrieve the letter after.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New today Plot hole: To enter Mrs. Inglethorp's bedroom, Hastings and John have to ram the door and certainly break the lock (it is replaced, so there was damage done). The doctor leaves the house very early in the morning just after ascertaining the death of the woman, and tells them he "locked both rooms" (the room has three doors but one is bolted internally, allegedly). But the door was broken, and in fact when Poirot arrives, which is early in the morning, as Hastings went to the village waking him up, he finds a brand new lock in the door. They would have needed to summon a locksmith at maybe 6 or 7 am, to repair an internal door in a country house, and he should have done it on the spot (also, the door frame itself is more likely to suffer damage than the lock itself, no real damage was shown during the scene). The keys are also all in the same bunch and not looking in any way different (one should be brand new and shiny). (00:28:45 - 00:37:40)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New today Continuity mistake: Poirot is concentrating in London, making a house of cards. When he says "I steady my nerves, that is all", the 6 of hearts can be seen in his right hand, and he sets it as the diagonal piece. Cut to Hastings, and then Poirot supposedly still has the same house in front of him...but it is not. Where the 6 of hearts was, there is now a 6 of spades, and the whole castle is different, with the cards pulled tighter together. Later he rebuilds the house, and he sets horizontally in the close-up a 5 of spades, which turns into the 2 of spades immediately after. (01:19:40)

New this week Suggested correction: Yes, because Kate re-designed it.

New this week Ohhh, okay. I must have missed the part when she said she was doing it, my bad. Which episode?

Sammo Premium member

New this week I'll have to look that up, which I will when I have a chance, but it follows in line with the redesign of the batsuit and emblem.

Batman (1966)

Fine Feathered Finks (1) - S1-E3

New this week Stupidity: The conveyor belt has two different flip switches; one saying START, the other STOP. Who would ever design that, when an on/off switch is more than enough? (00:23:50)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Factual error: Poirot is taking a break from the prosecution' speech and is walking with Hastings, explaining to him Mary Cavendish's jealousy. In the street, they pass by a truck (registration plate MR 5496) that is a Morris-Commercial 1-Ton model. Morris began productions in the early 20s, and we are in 1917 for this episode. (01:17:45)

Lupin III (2015)

The Left Hand of the Magician - S1-E5

The False Play - S1-E2

New this week Continuity mistake: Brozzi fills the glass past the point of overflowing, and sips from it. In the next cut, the glass is already half empty. That's some potent sucking. (00:06:00)

New this week Character mistake: Zenigata uncovers Elena's arm saying he noticed the mark when she was fighting "those guys previously." Which guys? Her assailant was just one dude. (00:13:40)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - S3-E1

New this week Continuity mistake: The guests of Styles Court manage to get inside the room of Mrs. Inglethorp and talk to her before the second fatal crisis happens. In the first wide shot you can see Hastings peek at Lawrence and then look towards the fireplace, which is an action he'll do in the close-up that follows - Lawrence does not seem to look in the direction Hastings is checking out, at all, but that is actually a nice touch considering the resolution. Moreover, in the second close-up of Hastings looking at him (the one that follows the view of the fireplace), Mary is directly in front of Hastings, you can see her insignia and arm. But instantly she is shown at the cut, creeping along the wall behind Lawrence. (00:29:00)
