I don't think these page needs to be deleted. It just needs better goofs. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 22:05, 28 November 2007 (EST)

  • I think there are too few and they are of too little significance to be at all consequential. the iMac note can easily be placed here. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 22:09, 28 November 2007 (EST)

Brain Dump

I'm not ready to endorse or oppose this article, but here's a list of bloopers or things that may be considered for this article off the top of my head. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:12, 28 November 2007 (EST)

Here are some more:

    • Oh don't forget Nathan's press conference that is just hilarious. Random guy 07:45, 7 December 2007 (EST)
      • If you're referring to the fact that the promo pic is not the same as the episodic pic, that's not a blooper. The promo pics are not canon and do not necessarily have to have the same elements as the aired episodes. Same goes for previews and press releases. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:36, 7 December 2007 (EST)
        • Oh well then, that is not at all as funny, I thought the reason we had it was because it was in the episode. I did not realize that one was a promotional pic. oops...
  • Oh, and the armed robber's license!
  • Tamara Greeer
  • Burnt Toaster
  • Image:The power to write in thin air.jpg

Isn't the fact that Sylar got shot four times, and stabbed very near the lungs of the heart quite curious. Also, Claire was supposedly going to die in Homecoming, but survived in The Second Coming.

Maybe retitle this page...

Curiosities. (or something to that effect.) Why? Some of these aren't bloopers, but product placements or unexplained details. Maybe make this into sections like: "Real Life Inconsistencies"(for things like the iMac and Heavenly Sword), "Prop Errors" (like the backwards symbol or Peter's gender), etc?--Riddler 22:41, 28 November 2007 (EST)

  • It definitely needs a name change. I'd rather go with a couple of different names in the title, like "Bloopers, production gaffes, and continuity errors" with redirects as needed. But I don't have too strong an opinion on this one... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:35, 28 November 2007 (EST)
    • That seems like a good idea. I wasn't sure what to name it, IMDB use the word goof instead of bloopers, so perhaps it's a better choice. --Jasonm 22:39, 29 November 2007 (EST)
    • Howabout "nitpicks"? That covers all sorts of errors, inconsistencies, bloopers, flubs, gaffes, etc., while making clear that it's meant with love. C.F. Nitpicker's guides in print.--Hardvice (talk) 16:45, 7 December 2007 (EST)

Molly's ADR

  • I like this article. It needs work, but a centralised location for all these seems merited. However, re: Molly's line being dubbed--if we note every instance in which dialog is ADR'd, this page is going to be fifty pages long. That's the nature of the film/TV industry; you can't always uses the audio from the scene. Now, if her line is dubbed in and her lips aren't moving, well, then that's a gaffe. But merely dubbing in a line--that's just the nature of the medium.--Hardvice (talk) 12:32, 7 December 2007 (EST)

*bump* to stimulate discussion delete or no.

do we delete this whilst we perform this strike-hiatus-induced spring cleaning? Personaly I dont think this is needed, for one, I didnt notice them, and for two, they dont mean anything to the story.--SacValleyDweller (talk) 00:50, 21 January 2008 (EST)

  • I like this page and think the afd should be changed to a stub. (I also think the name of the article should be changed.) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:56, 21 January 2008 (EST)
  • I like the content as I think there are people who enjoy catching bloopers; I don't see any reason not to keep the content. I have no particular preference whether the content remains on this page or incorporated into the episode articles. If we do delete this page I think most of its content should be merged elsewhere, though. (Admin 01:00, 21 January 2008 (EST))
    • I like the page too. I'll third the suggestion to remove the afd.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:10, 21 January 2008 (EST)
      • The only real objections I'm reading about on this page are that there aren't enough examples and that they're not significant. Well, since then, a lot of bloopers have been added. I'm sure there are a lot more examples out there, I just haven't spent more than about three minutes thinking about them. As for being insignificant, that might be true, but some people find them fun to read and quite interesting. I'll remove the afd tag now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:15, 21 January 2008 (EST)

Portal

Wouldn't this page fit more under Portal:Production than Portal:Fan Creations? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:43, 2 March 2008 (EST)

  • I second that opinion. It would fit better there. I just added to it fan creations since that was how it was set up. Any other opinions?--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:00, 2 March 2008 (EST)
    • Thirded! is production, not fan creation--SacValleyDweller (talk) 14:01, 2 March 2008 (EST)
      • I'll go ahead and change it now. If there are any strong reservations, we can discuss it here and make a change later on...-- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:31, 2 March 2008 (EST)

What to do...

I was trying to think of a better way to structure this page, and I still can't think of a way. The maintenance tag says the page needs standard formatting, but what would be the standard format?--Bob (talk) 14:53, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

Company Man blooper.

"Claire learned she was adopted in 2003, though she once said that she had learned she was adopted when she was very young (One Giant Leap)." - Didn't the Haitian say he has erased Claire's memory at least once? Or am I remembering incorrectly?--Riddler 23:13, 7 December 2008 (EST)

  • I don't think the Haitian has ever erased Claire's memory. At least, I can't remember any quotes or anything like that. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:55, 7 December 2008 (EST)

Thoughts on some things listed

Company Man:

  • One thing I hold onto that helps me accept any time line holes in this show and I think it works rather well as I haven't found anyone that can find a hole with it. I believe it was Einstein that theorized that there are an infinite number of parallel universes. Any small change that occurs at any point can put you into a different parallel universe. As an example, if Hiro TTs back, changes something, then comes back to the present, he actually is not coming back to the original time line he left. It is nearly identical but will diverge from the original from that moment he returns. --Thegregg 20:39, 4 January 2009

Other Continuity Errors:

  • Just a thought but Noah Bennett may never have been told Claire's actually birthday, maybe no one actually knows it but her Mom. She was saved from a fire as a baby. Possible Noah changes it with every move to ensure secrecy? --Thegregg 20:39, 4 January 2009

Interviews:

  • My goal for online forums is to do away with continuity errors. Peter Petrelli may actually online be able to use one power at a time as stated by Joe and Aron. He has access to a wide range of abilities but can only use them in sequence so that validates what they said. He cannot for example fly while invisible but he can fly somewhere then, land, then become invisible. So Joe and Aron aren't wrong in their statement. Even while fighting he can only use one power at a time not 2 or three in a single move. Just a thought--Thegregg 15:56, 4 January 2009 (EST)...

Truth and Consequences - antibodies

(moving from page to talk): Under Truth and Consequences, the following is listed: --Stevehim 16:42, 4 January 2009 (EST)

* Mohinder tells Bob that combining his own blood with Claire's causes his antibodies to become strong enough to defeat an enhanced strain of the Shanti virus. In reality, though, antibodies, being proteins and not cells, cannot "become stronger". Since they are simply molecules that interact with antigens such as viruses, they cannot be "strong" nor "weak".
  • Here's a possible answer. Antibodies are produced by a kind of white blood cell called a B cell. What if Claire's overcharged healing is a result of and overcharged immune system is a result of ultra strong hematopoietic stem cells from her bone marrow? Thus in essence creates anti-bodies that are far more powerful than those of regular human being. This gives validity to Mohinder's statement. --Thegregg 21:10, 4 January 2009
    • No, the point of the paragraph is exactly that, from a scientific point of view, it is absurd to say that it "creates anti-bodies that are far more powerful than those of a regular human being". Again, I will stress that molecules cannot be powerful. What Claire's blood might do is that it alters the antibodies at a molecular level (but an alteration is definitely different than an enhancement) or that it improves the immune system, allowing the body to produce the specific antibodies for the Shanti virus strain. However, Mohinder never mentions any of these two hypothesis (though Sylar does), so his statement is a contradiction with the real world.--Referos 17:50, 4 January 2009 (EST)

The Irish don't use Dollars!

  • When Peter Petrelli is about to help Ricky rob a bank in Season 2 (I think it was Kindred), he says something like, "Hey I want my $200 back!" or something to the guards. Even though they use the Euro (€) in that part of Ireland. Silly Peter! --Isaac Mendez 13:43, 19 February 2009 (EST)

Our Father Note

  • Kaito has the same actor for a portrayal of him 13 years or so earlier, yet he has a different actor when its only 20 or so. How come?

Some things to remove & / or fix

  1. In the prop errors section it is said that many copies of 9th wonders appears. I don't see how this is an error. Magazines and comics sometimes have special covers.
  2. In Discontinuities With the Real World, in the genesis section, it is said that there is no such thing as a worldwide event. I don't think it was ever stated to be so. It was only in one half of the world (from Japan to America was all we seen) and Mohinder told Peter in his taxi that it was not a total eclipse in NY but in some other part of the world.
  3. In Discontinuities With the Real World, under Hiros, it should be noted that even though ando tells niki she should change the WHOIS to private, the episode aired after the date that this takes place, soooo, niki could have changed it to make it private, could she not?
  4. This one's kind of a joke, Claire said to brody that she learned she was adopted at a very young age. 13 is a young age for claire, considering she'll live forever.
  5. And as for Elle's assignment part 2, you need to take into consideration time differences, and the fact that the company probably has teleporters working for them.

So many plausible explanations for some of these things. Just thought I'd put them out there for the fun of it. --mc_hammark 09:51, 24 October 2009 (EDT)

Samuel’s Sling

In BNW, Sam is using one of his suspenders as a sling for his arm. Then, when he runs out on stage, it’s suddenly fine. Then he uses it in his dual with Peter. Production error or was he just milking it before?--Boycool42 17:50, 17 February 2010 (EST)
