Futurama (1999)

The Route of All Evil - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: The back page that has been ripped off is put in the envelope with the top part showing the right way up, but it was folded so if the ads side of the page was showing, either the middle part or the top part upside down would show.

Futurama (1999)

The Route of All Evil - S5-E3

Trivia: The voice actor for Dwight left to do a film in China before the show was finalised, and didn't return until 10 months later. This meant that the episode couldn't be improved completely until their return, thus it was aired in the fifth season.

Futurama (1999)

The Route of All Evil - S5-E3

Futurama (1999)

Season 5 generally

Trivia: This season was compiled of previously unaired episodes. There were 4 production seasons, but not all of the episodes had been aired due to various reasons. These include Fox thinking some were inappropriate (including "Tale of Two Santas") and schedules being limited.

Hollyoaks (1995)

Show generally

Audio problem: 2nd January 2004 - Cameron shouted "Don't you want a lift?" out of the car when his friends ran away (thinking it was a killer that had stolen the car.) His lips moved when he spoke, but it was obviously a dub as the words didn't match.

Show generally

Factual error: On the Series 3 DVD extra disk, it says that the Doctor's role model is "Patch Adams (Robbie Williams)", but the actor Robin Williams was Patch Adams, not the pop star Robbie.

Show generally

Character mistake: Tai says "And it started to snow in the middle of July" but later you find out that it takes place on August first.

Beauty and the Beast (Or, Come into My Parlour) - S3-E5

Trivia: While filming exterior scenes at "Spit and Polish" for this episode, the league had trouble with some members of the public. A car kept driving past them until they said "Action", and then it revved its engine so they had to start filming again.

How The Elephant Got Its Trunk - S3-E6

Trivia: In the last episode of Series 3, the league wanted the animals to look nothing like animals and be obviously people inside animal suits. When making the series, they were 'forced' to use animals with people added with computer, and so the whole point was missed.

Dan Moat

Trivia: To avoid conflict, and to save time, the league write the show in pairs. Mark writes with Jeremy (the unseen one), and Steve with Reece.

A Tale of Two Santas - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: The elves' hats fix themselves in the shot looking from behind the sack towards Robot Santa, then become ripped again as they run off. (00:05:45)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Martin's car was parked outside on the episode first broadcast on 15/12/03. It wasn't used at all in the day, but at night when he came to use it, it had moved position outside his house.

Sing a Song of Murder - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Emma was almost hit by a car she jumped up onto the edge of the wall and then back down onto the floor. When she landed she was facing the theatre door, but when Oliver came of the door and the shot changed, she was facing away from the wall. This happened in the transition from stunt person to Angela.

Dan Moat

Sing a Song of Murder - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: When the first scene at Emma's hideaway was shown, obviously the two characters Emma and Jessica were filmed seperately on the couch and then the film was put together (as both are played by Angela Lansbury). However Jessica did a lot of moving while she was talking, so Emma was looking straight across at where she had been, despite her bending down while she talked.
