Question: Why do some inmates wear orange uniforms and others wear light brown? This to show who's new there?

Rob245

Answer: On the show, orange uniforms are worn by the new inmates, while the khaki is the longer-term population. Generally, there's no standard meaning of the colors as every prison has their own color-coding system. For example, red could mark more dangerous inmates. Other colors could indicate lower-risk prisoners, ones with health issues, area designations, and so on.

Question: How in the world were Nicky and the models able to slip past the guard dogs?

Rob245

Answer: As shown in Nicky's office, him and the models are professionals, judging from the different tools that they are using and a map of the Mallory Gallery. All they would have to do is watch and wait for the dogs to leave a specific area, and they would be able to get in because of how quiet they were while Kermit and friends were caught because of how much noise Animal made while trying to eat through the bars.

Nothing to Fear - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Batman tears off the front of The Scarecrow's collar. Yet later in his hideout it's fine again.

Dallas (1978)

Show generally

Question: Given how long it ran and its popularity, was there ever talk of a crossover with Dynasty regardless of different networks?

Rob245

Answer: No, back then such things were unheard of. Too much politics, contract disputes and what would the characters do if they met.

Stupidity: The Joneses forget to change their New York license plates to Georgia ones as part of their cover.

Power Rangers (2017)

Question: How could whoever made Rita a ranger not tell she was evil? Did she become corrupt over time like those who possess the ring in Lord of the Rings?

A Child in Need - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: When The Hulk tosses the abusive father across the gym his blond hair looks fluffier and darker, indicating it's a wig on a stuntman.

Question: Why does Michael turn on and kill Dr Wynn and other cult members?

Rob245

Answer: Thank you.

Rob245

Answer: Because they no longer controlled him, his evil was so strong it broke free, like a volcano erupting.

Halloween 5 (1989)

Question: The scene where Jamie flees to the clinic's basement because she thinks Michael's there, was it all in her mind or what?

Halloween 5 (1989)

Stupidity: It seems stupid on the part of the hermit to keep Michael in his shack for over a year given he tried to strangle him and was bleeding that night. He should've gone to the police.

Marathon Man (1976)

Question: Why does Babe throw Szell's diamonds away when he could've kept a few? Why would Szell be stupid enough to risk exposure when going to the diamond district of New York where somebody might recognize him?

Rob245

Answer: The diamonds were "blood money" that were stolen at the expense of many Jewish lives during the holocaust, and also led to Babe's brother, "Doc" being murdered. For that reason, Babe would not want them, nor would he allow others to profit from them. Szell needed to risk being recognized in New York in order to retrieve the entire cache of diamonds from the bank safe deposit box after his brother, Klaus, was killed. Klaus would retrieve as many diamonds as Szell needed to support himself in South America. Once Klaus was dead, no-one else could gain access to them for Szell, or if they could, probably would have stolen them.

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Astronaut - S4-E14

Stupidity: For being a supposedly clever guy, the astronaut doesn't think to wear gloves as he's fixing that garage door opener as part of his death device as a precaution.

Halloween 4 (1988)

Trivia: The poster features a different mask for Myers, closer to the original one. The one he wears in the movie is quite different.

Second Chance - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Two-Face's left leg is blue here whereas it was normal in part 1 of his origin episode.

The Parking Spot Escalation - S6-E9

Stupidity: For being smart they act stupid here. They don't think to alter the days the guys use the parking space with Friday being where they either share it together or Leonard or Raj get it while Howard and Sheldon would each get it two days apiece.

Suggested correction: It's not a stupidity. It's entirely within the personalities of the two friends that Sheldon wouldn't accept change and give up something that is rightly his and for Howard to gloat over that he's a bigger deal than Sheldon now and refuse to give up something given for his new celebrity.

Fiddler on the Ropes - S4-E18

Other mistake: There's a lot of talk about Pepe hurting his hands during his last boxing match. Unless there's something I'm missing, boxing gloves should provide adequate protection.

Question: Depending on child labor laws just how did they get the young Diana actress to do her own stunts?

Rob245

Answer: Lily Aspell, (young Diana), performed many of her own stunts. She is naturally athletic and was already an expert equestrian rider (her parents and uncle are professional jockeys). Stunts are carefully coordinated, and she would never have been allowed to do anything dangerous. Stunt doubles perform the more dangerous action scenes. Often, CGI superimposes an actor's face over a stunt double's body. Safety harnesses and suspension cables are used and later removed digitally. Actors also perform many scenes in front of a "green screen" and special effects are added later to look like an extreme environment. I once observed a movie scene being shot. What looked like a wild car chase in the move was actually filmed with the vehicles driven at slow speed. The action was sped up during the editing process.

Thanks brother. Regardless of it being a hilariously "so bad it's good to watch and laugh at"movie I was concerned for the child. All the best and have a nice day.

You're welcome, and I'm a "sister." :-).

Question: Why did Marshall hire Madonna and O'Donnell?

Rob245

Answer: Rosie O'Donnell auditioned for the role of Marla, but lost it. Penny Marshal thought she was a good actress and so funny she created the role of Doris for her. As for Madonna, she was like all singers getting offered movie roles. She was very popular back in the 90's, but reportedly a total diva to work with.

Continuity mistake: When Aresia's shown as a child in flashbacks in the ocean she goes from being barefoot to wearing black shoes in several shots.

The Mummy (1959)

Plot hole: Unless I'm missing something when Stephen Banning reads from The Scroll of Life, not only should Kharis have come back to life but so should Princess Ananka since her sarcophagus was open.
