Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

Love those kinds of things .

One of my favorites from the X-Files:

Invisible man behind the trash can .

Linked to the video, since I can't get the video to link to youtube. Is there any way to do so on site, or does it not exist anymore?

Also Kirk fighting the Gorn, with Shatner's "patented" sideways kick. I know they must use stuntmen, but so obviously not Shat.

Shatner VS Kruge in "The search for Spock" when "Shatner" does that backwards flip is hilarious.
I still remember thinking "Had that been TOS, he'd have landed on his feet!"

Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

During a fight scene in Day of the Dove, somebody knocks a plasma conduit (whatever) off the wall. No time for another take? It look enough like a flower pot that the director said screw it? In the next scene in the corridor it's been put back.

Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

I remember this old L&O episode where a guy says he left a gun on the subway tracks of the 7 line, "near the Brooklyn Bridge station". The 7 train doesn't go anywhere near the Brooklyn Bridge (its only stations in Manhattan are Times Square, 5th Ave/Bryant Park, and Grand Central).

^Ah, if we're going to get into mapping issues then The Glades will make any Floridian cry. That show treats the state like it's the size of Rhode Island. Going to Cassadaga and Homestead in the same day? Before 5pm? Not at less than 100 mph.

Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

In the movie The Ghost Writer, which takes place in Marthas Vineyard, they wanted to film in Marthas Vineyward but then couldn't so they ended up filming in Scotland. So there are locations in the film that look nothing like Marthas Vineyard. Then at one point he drives to Belmont, a very populated town, and ends up on a long isolated drive into the woods.

What burns me is this. Places around that general area like Lincoln, Concord, etc, actually do have long isolated drives surrounded by trees leading to fancy private residences. But they couldn't make that one change in the script to have him drive to another rich-ass near-Boston town that looks more like the filming location.

Kind of like on Little House on the Prairie, where they seemed to travel with ease to other towns despite usually going by horseback or wagon. They even had baseball games against Sleepy Eye despite that it's about 30 miles from Walnut Grove. And trips to Mankato- which is at least 50 miles away- was made to seem like just a short day trip.

Of course the landscape itself looked nothing like SW Minnesota (which is really flat).

And then there's 24, of course, where Jack can drive clear across L.A. in what appears to be a matter of seconds.

Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

Just noticed in Breaking Bad.

In one episode Walter tries to let Walter Jr drive his car, and he can't, because due to his cerebral palsy his 'legs don't work that way'.

Later he buys Walter Jr a car and he can immediately drive it perfectly.

I know they have cars you can operate with your hands for handicapped drivers, but do they keep one for every model on stock at all times?

Re: Finding goofs in your tv shows...

Spotted one in an episode of "A Town Called Eureka"

Vincent has a line where he mentiones setting his fridge/freezer to zero degrees Kelvin, and taps in -273 on his fridge. Which is all very well and good but if you look carefully the fridge/freezer is set to show tempature in degrees F so it reads as -273F which is not zero degrees Kelvin. It would be correct if it was -273C.
