Exam Time - S2-E6

Corrected entry: The episode features Simon helping Carly with a subject he isn't taking, sociology - it's constantly mentioned about how he doesn't study it, but the exam he is given in the hall towards the end of the episode is titled 'Sociology' suggesting he does in fact take the subject.

Correction: Simon helps Carly with Geography, which is the subject he's not taking.


Simon goes on the geography trip it is only Neil that doesn't take it so that is another error.

Correction: The trip is actually a geography and sociology trip, so this is why Simon is going.

Night Out in London - S2-E4

Corrected entry: When the boys see Neil's car in his driveway, it has a registration plate. However Neil then says that it isn't completely built yet and doesn't have an engine. A car cannot have a registration plate if it hasn't had an engine installed, because the fuel type and emissions of the engine are required data for the registration process.

Correction: What Neil says earlier in the episode is "I got a car... Last weekend" - there is no mention of it not being built, or even working. What Neil also says later in the episode is "I ain't got it [the car] going yet - it don't work... [My mechanic] Dave's trying to find me [an engine]". Based on Neil's intelligence as presented in the show its entirely plausible he's bought a car second hand that doesn't work or has stopped working. The number plate would have been assigned to the vehicle when it was registered new, and doesn't change when the car changes owner.

Neil Jones

Thorpe Park - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Simon's car loses its door it hits the post on the inside, but the damage shows it's been hit on the outside. (00:13:20)

Death racer 1

Caravan Club - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Jay is telling Simon, Will and Neil to park up because his mum has made them tea, look on the ground to the front right of the shot and you can see the shadows of some of the filming crew.

Correction: At no point is the shadow of the film crew visible. There is Simon's shadow, the car's shadow and nothing else.

The Field Trip - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When Mr Kennedy places the towel around Neil's shoulders, you hear Mr Gilbert say 'John' although you can see that his mouth does not move.

Correction: The line is "c'mon John" and the camera is off Mr Gilbert until the end of "John" at which point his mouth moves.

Thorpe Park - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Simon returns from his driving test, he steals something from his brother which isn't in his hand when the camera angle changes.


Correction: He steals the DS Lite and there is enough time when the camera is off Si for him to put it in his back pocket. If you look closely you can see him bringing his arm back from his pocket.

Bunk Off - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When Simon is spray painting on Carli's drive, he spells Carli wrong. He spells it Carly. Surely if he has known her since he was eight he would be able to spell her name correctly.

Aled Wesker

Correction: And he is drunk. Drunk people make mistakes.

Caravan Club - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the petrol station, when the four are gathered around Simon, just before his phone goes off and Will asks, 'is that Leona Lewis?' part of a grey boom mic slips into the top of the shot for a second. (00:07:10)

Bunk Off - S1-E2

Question: Why do the boys decide to steal their parent's booze? They have three bottles of spirits between four of them, which is more than enough for them to get drunk. In fact, in Will Is Home Alone, they share twenty cans of beer between the four of them (five each, all things being equal), and are dreadfully hungover the next morning. Assume this is classed as a character mistake, it just makes no sense.

Answer: Jay, Si and Will steal Simons dad booze as they are planning on meeting Carly later on and have lost their own supply when kicked out of Neil's place by his dad after being caught and insulted.
