Continuity mistake: During the bar fight notice two women, a blond and a brunette, they're ready to use beer bottles with the blond's back to the audience. Then, once Sonic has tied everyone's legs together, they've suddenly switched places.

Young Sheldon (2017)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Younger Mary's a blond with blue eyes whereas on The Big Bang Theory she has brown hair and brown eyes.

Rob245

Revealing mistake: Obvious stunt double for Susan Lucci in the skinny dipping pool scene. The stunt double's hair is longer and straight while Susan's goes past her shoulders only some, has bangs and is slightly curled.

Rob245

Continuity mistake: When Daniel is striking Chozen during their fight at the end it's right left right left. Yet at one point during a shot of Daniel's back he strikes Chozen twice with his open left hand when it should've been left right like the rest of the time.

Pokemon (1998)

Show generally

Question: How can they fit inside those balls and why do they fight each other? Why listen to those who captured them? Why doesn't Pikachu ever evolve?

Rob245

Answer: To answer the first question, the ball is actually a gateway. They are not exactly inside the ball, but more like it opens up a sort of pocket dimension and kinda stores the creatures as data. In some cases, the balls even teleport the pokemon to the professor. For the second question, it's unclear exactly but there is a lot of "training" that goes into it. And I can't exactly answer the last question other than to say Pikachu doesn't want to. Several times in the series Ash even tries to get him to evolve, but Pikachu refuses. Resulting in over time he's actually a very above average power Pikachu.

It's not any kind of gateway or pocket dimension. When captured by a Pokeball, Pokemon are converted into a form of energy for storage and transfer.

Urban Legend (1998)

Question: Why does Brenda bother with all the other characters? They had nothing to do with David's death, only Natalie and Michelle did.

Supergirl (2015)

Season 5 generally

Question: Why did they change her costume and hair style?

Rob245

Answer: I can't say for certain, so I'm surmising that the change was to "catch up" with the other Arrowverse shows, particularly Arrow and The Flash, whose lead characters have undergone various upgrades and redesigns of their superhero suits over the years; after four seasons, Kara's probably just felt a little stale. And I believe the change in hairstyle was Melissa Benoist's personal decision and had nothing to do with the character.

Cubs Fan

Continuity mistake: The head and eyes of Krang's robot body change entirely after his scene with Shredder early in the movie to a different look later when he fights the Turtles.

The Adhesive Duck Deficiency - S3-E8

Factual error: Maybe I'm wrong but I've had the dislocated shoulder experience and shouldn't hers be in a sling at her side not across her front right to left? This just seems odd.

Suggested correction: That type of sling is the best for preventing movement of the shoulder joint. It is the proper one.

Question: What happens to Jodi?

Question: Just how would Krang know about Shredder's history with the Turtles?

Watchmen (2009)

Question: If Rorschach's considered nuts then why kill him? Why kill the Comedian? Why wasn't he heavily guarded in prison once caught? Why not arrest Veidt?

Rob245

Answer: The Comedian discovered what Veidt was planning to do, so Veidt killed him to silence him. Rorschach isn't causing problems for the prison once he's in there. Every violent thing he does is in self-defense. There's no reason for him to be heavily guarded. He's killed because they can't risk anyone exposing what Veidt did and ruining the world peace that was achieved. Veidt is not arrested for the same reason.

The Darling Baby - S5-E12

Question: Why is it when they were on the show the Darling sons never spoke? Would they be paid more if they did, or was this some sort of joke?

Rob245

Question: Why do they keep changing Mystique's appearance in this branch of the franchise? Compare First Class to Dark Phoenix, notice the difference.

Rob245

Answer: Jennifer Lawrence was actually allergic to the makeup that was used on her in First Class. For the next two films, she wore a body suit instead. For Dark Phoenix, since they were just going to kill her character off anyway, I think they just decided to be lazy and went with a more minimal approach with her appearance, and didn't care that it looked different. I mean, the scene of Jean Grey being taken over by the Phoenix Force at the beginning of Dark Phoenix directly contradicts her having the Phoenix power at the end of Apocalypse, so it's not like the filmmakers cared too much about overall continuity in the series.

X-Men 3 (2006)

Question: Why does Mystique lie there after being cured? She just waits to be re arrested instead of putting on a guard's coat and fleeing?

Rob245

Answer: She's just lying there because she's in shock of not only losing her power, but being betrayed by her only real friend in the world. She needs a moment to process what just happened. It's not unreasonable for her to be doing so - I'd probably do the same thing if my whole world fell apart in a single instance. It's been a while since I've seen the movie, but I also don't believe she's re-arrested. I think when you see her talking to the feds later, it's because she sought them out herself. (But I could be wrong about that).

X-Men 3 (2006)

Question: After Mystique's "cured" and talks to the Feds what do they do with her?

Rob245

Answer: In all likelihood she goes to prison, but there's a good chance she may have worked out a deal for a reduced sentence (or even possibly immunity) for informing on the location of Magneto's base camp and other information related to Magneto.

The Sopranos (1999)

Made in America - S6-E21

Question: What was with that series finale ending scene? Did Tony die or not? Did they do this to be open for interpretation?

Rob245

Answer: The ending is purposely ambiguous and open to interpretation. The series creator once said: "There's more than one way of looking at the ending. That's all I'll say." He's also refused to outright explain what the ending meant.

TedStixon

Actually, the creator of the Sopranos accidentally revealed it to be a death scene in an interview: https://www.menshealth.com/entertainment/a32869286/sopranos-creator-accidentally-confirms-tony-death-series-finale/.

Game of Thrones (2011)

Show generally

Question: Is Cersei Lannister based on Lady MacBeth and Agrippina the Younger? Both were ruthless and ambitious with Agrippina being the mother of Nero. Cersei, mother of Tommen Baratheon. She, on the show, pushed for her son to become king as did Agrippina, so was inspiration drawn from her and Lady MacBeth?

Rob245

Answer: Thank you.

Rob245

Answer: She appears to be a composite of many historical queens and fictional characters, including Lady MacBeth and also Queen Margaret of Anjou, who was married to King Henry VI of England.

Question: Since they had friends why couldn't the Stivics move in with them so they wouldn't have to put up with Archie?

Rob245

Answer: Yes, Gloria and Michael have friends, but when they got married they decided it was best to live *rent free* with Edith and Archie, while Mike was going to college. Living with friends rent free, for quite a few years, is not an easy thing no matter how close the friends are with them. Since the Stivics needed their money to pay for the tuition and its other costs, their living arrangement made it all easier to deal with. Hence the Archie and Mike scenarios.
