The Incredible Hulk

Darkness and Light: Part 1 - S1-E11

Plot hole: When Hulk and Banner have been physically separated by the nutrient bath, they are both wearing tattered pants. Given that Hulk and Banner were previously occupying the same body, this should not be possible. Hulk was the one that went into the nutrient bath, so if Banner's body was separated from Hulk, then Banner should be naked.

Suggested correction: It was done deliberately as a form of censorship. They didn't want to show Bruce's genitals.

Explaining why the mistake occurred doesn't invalidate it. Unless you're suggesting the nutrient bath also was able to duplicate the pants.

I am not. I am just explaining the reason behind this error.

Do you have a source for this explanation? If not, I would call it conjecture and while it doesn't invalidate the mistake, it does change it to a deliberate mistake if true.

You realise a character can be drawn naked without actually showing their genitals (and/or breasts in the case of women), right? The Little Mermaid is a good example of this.

Suggested correction: A scorpion's pedipalps (their pincers) are not legs. Scorpions and other arachnids have 8 legs and 2 pedipalps.

Wow, you're right. I looked up a bunch of images of scorpions before posting this and somehow all the pictures I saw before posting showed them with 6 legs, but now I'm seeing pictures of them with 8 legs.

The Incredible Hulk mistake picture

Doomed - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Jennifer Walters is first introduced, her fingernails are unpolished. Later when she is restrained in Dr. Doom's lair, her fingernails alternate between being painted pink and red. Given that she and Bruce were running for their lives, she wouldn't have had time to paint her nails. Later when she transforms into She-Hulk, her fingernails turn green with the rest of her body, but if her fingernails were painted, they should still appear that color, as her skin and hair turning green wouldn't magically remove nail polish.

The Return of the Beast: Part 1 - S1-E1

Trivia: When we see the flashback of the accident that caused Bruce Banner to become the Hulk, at first we see the Hulk colored gray and then slowly turn green. This is a reference to the comics, in which the Hulk was gray in his original appearance.

Answer: I believe it was mentioned in an issue of Wizard Magazine that the show was cancelled because of low ratings, and reportedly the show's creative shift in the second season had a part to play in the low ratings, as the changes alienated fans.
