College - S1-E5

Corrected entry: During their college trip, Tony and Meadow are using a grey sedan, but later in the episode, they arrive back at home in Tony's usual burgundy Chevy Suburban. I know Tony killed the rat during the trip, but it doesn't seem like he wants to get rid of the car because of that, in fact they can be seen driving in the sedan right after the murder and besides, Meadow wouldn't have just accepted this change of cars without asking. (00:07:36 - 00:53:00)

Correction: This episode takes place in Maine, Tony and Meadow even discuss their flight. The grey sedan is obviously a rental.

The sedan did have Maine Plates.

Correction: In this scene, she is day dreaming so its not really happening. She is day dreaming about escaping but because the car was in park, in reality, its telling her she cant leave.

Proshai, Livushka - S3-E2

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the episode, when everybody is gathered at the Sopranos house, Tony opens a door which has a mirror on it. Watch closely as he is opening it, you can see Pussy in the reflection even though he was killed in Season 2.

Correction: This is not a mistake, but a plot point. Tony feels some remorse about having to kill Pussy, so he sees him in the mirror. He is not really there.

Correction: Exactly. He feels bad for killing him. He says you were like a brother to me. To all of us, before he shot him.

Proshai, Livushka - S3-E2

Corrected entry: When Tony is talking to Noah, Tony asks, "What's your background, Noah?" Noah then starts his answer with "Noah...I'm from Los Angeles..." Noah repeating his first name at the beginning of his line does not make sense, and is likely a freudian slip resulting from Noah knowing Tony's lines, and waiting for his cue. (00:04:30)

Correction: Tony calls him "Noel" (which he's scripted to do to show either he wasn't paying attention to the guy's name or doesn't care to remember it). Noah then begins his sentence by correcting Tony.


Kaisha - S6-E12

Corrected entry: Chris and Julianna are having sex and then 10 minutes later they "meet" for the first time outside an AA meeting. They talked as they had never met before. Timeline completely screwed up.


Correction: That scene is a flashback, not a mistake.

Marco Polo - S5-E8

Corrected entry: At the party, Carmella tells Tony B. to film the food tables before they get pillaged. She calls him Stevie, his real name.

Correction: She uses his initials. She said "Tony B, make sure you shoot the food table."


Show generally

Corrected entry: The whole Mafia side of the family that Tony frequents say how they smoke only the finest Cuban Cigars, quite frequently Monte Cristo's. Cuban cigars don't produce white ash like it does on the show. Cuban cigars' ash is a dark brown color.

Correction: Factually incorrect. I have smoked Cuban cigars with white ash including Monte Cristo.

Long Term Parking - S5-E12

Corrected entry: When Adrianna is driving, before she meets Silvio it shows her in the driver seat, the car moving. Then it goes to a shot of her luggage. In that shot you can see the car's shifter is in park, not in drive. (00:44:30)


Correction: She's daydreaming this. Not really driving on the interstate.

The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti - S1-E8

Corrected entry: Chris is in a bakery and he is overlooked for a guy that walks in. The characters name is Gino, but later in the series the same actor shows back up as Vito Spatafore. They get into an altercation but if Vito was a wiseguy then Chris would have recognized him.

Correction: This is true, however it's really meant to be two characters rather than a mistake. He played the small part but was then later cast as Vito. They thought it would be OK because his original part was so small.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Despite the fact that the Soprano family is supposed to be well-known in New Jersey (so much so that, when Janice gets into the fight at Sophia's soccer game, the newscasters mention that she is the "reputed mob boss's sister"), nobody around them seems to be aware of who they are. Katherine Romano doesn't know Uncle Junior is under House Arrest (this kind of stuff makes the news all the time). And, given that Dr. Kupfurburg lives in New Jersey, is Dr. Melfi's shrink, and constantly talks about how concerned he is about her treating Tony, how is it possible that he didn't know who Tony was when he ran into him in the parking garage?

Correction: Just becaue people hear names/events on the news and see some pictures does not mean that they will definitely recognize someone they have seen just a few times on the news. I am from Long Island and I can say I would never be able to spot John Gotti or his sons even though there was a reality TV program about them.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Ep. 83, "Kennedy and Heidi": After Christopher dies and they're talking about the cause of death, Meadow says that an airbag deployed without a seatbelt on can cause thorasic damage, but the airbags were not deployed after the accident when Tony reached in to kill him.

Correction: Meadow could have easily heard misinformation saying the bag exploded, when in reality it did not. Afterall, everyone received misinformation as to how Christopher actually died.

Correction: It was a flashback. Kind of prefacing A.J's attack on corrado, which was "attempted" later in the episode.

46 Long - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Brendon and his 2 friends try to rob the truck, the driver gets shot by accident due to a gun that fell. Look at the second where he falls down. He tries to break his fall by using his left hand. A dead person wouldn't do this. (00:39:10)

Correction: But a fatally injured, dying man would.

Correction: It's not a plot hole. It's possible people heard but didn't react. It's also possible they didn't really acknowledge to themselves or care that they might have heard gunshots. It's also possible that no-one heard. We don't see that anyone else was actually home in neighbouring houses.

Correction: Some nightclubs are open at 6 AM, others open at noon, some are 24 hours. Not everyone lives on a 9 to 5 schedule.

Knight in White Satin Armor - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Janice is trying on her wedding gown with Carmela, her tattoo is gone. However, in all the other shots, her tattoo is above her cleavage line, between her boobs. It's nowhere to be seen in the wedding dress shots.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Actually, her tattoo is visible. The style of the wedding dress she had on was obviously chosen for the way that it NEARLY covered up the tattoo. It is easily seen if your eyes are not glued to her cleavage near the 19 minute mark.

Sorry. There is no way her tattoo is covered up. I looked at the prior engagement party scene and jumped to the wedding dress, this is an error. There is no covering it up.

The tattoo is there and it is definitely covered up. Look at her right boob, not left, since we are seeing a reflection of her in the mirror, and you'll find that tattoo all right.

Suggested correction: Actually there is more than one shot where you can't see the tattoo at all. It depends on the angle. In most shots the top of the tattoo is always visible and in others it's not at all.

Christopher - S4-E3

Question: Was it Jimmy Altieri standing in the back of the crowd during the Columbus rally scene? He was killed in season one for being an FBI informant and here they probably used him as a stand in... If so, then that is some sort of mistake, because I think, it really is him. (00:15:50)

Answer: That's not Jimmy, just a look-a-like. Jimmy's short and stout, the guy in "Christopher" episode is tall and medium built. The hair is also different.
