NCIS is well known for being completely inaccurate in any and all things technical when it comes to computers, to the point of ridicule. It has no relation to real hacking or programming at all. One episode has Mcgee and Abbey sharing a keyboard to fight a hacker, as in each took half the keyboard to type... Utterly. ...

Based on the movie alone, since I haven't read the book (or any in what would become a series of books), and though it's been a while since I've seen it, I would say that Dorothy will miss the Scarecrow most because he sacrificed the most during her time in Oz. The most harm that came to anyone, came to the Scarecrow. The Tin Man had to be oiled to join ...

Yes, Don Eladio Vuente is the head of the Ciudad Juárez Cartel. His title of Don says it all, implying royalty. But Gus' revenge was mainly personal, as Eladio was the one that had his friend killed right in front of him a long time ago. It was just very very thorough because if it wasn't, any living members of the cartel would have sought revenge.

The last mention of Edmure was in Season 3 episode 10 "Mhysa". Look at us now, Tully. You're dead, your daughter's dead, your grandson's dead, your son spent his wedding night in a dungeon and I'm Lord of Riverrun. -Walder Frey There has been no further mention of him, or Blackfish, or the Tullys at all in following seasons of the show, which have ...

I don't think that Hank's interest for rocks and minerals has a particularly deep meaning (but that's just my opinion). If I remember correctly, in one of the interviews of the Breaking Bad's cast contained in the BluRay version of the TV Series (might have been Hank's or Vince Gilligan's), it was stated that the choice of rocks was considered appropriate ...

The character of Jeff Lebowski is said to be based on Jeff Dowd who was a member of the anti-war radical group the Seattle Liberation Front. Dowd was born November 20, 1949. At the beginning of the movie you can see the speech of George Bush "This will not stand, this aggression against Kuwait." which was on Aug. 5, 1990. So I would say he was 40.

I recall Gale explaining to Walter: I'm definitely a libertarian. Consenting adults want what they want and if I'm not supplying it they will get it somewhere else. At least with me they're getting exactly what they pay for; no added toxins or impurities. I think it's also useful to consider the purity of meth. he could make, which was probably matched ...

Tautologist's answer gives evidence of possible moments of doubt - but there's also evidence he still believed Robert was his father until (at least almost) end. This is from the scene where the small council hears of the red wedding in S03 E10 (the one which ends with Tywin sending the king to bed early): TYWIN: Any man who must say, "I am the king" is ...

He started having doubts, which he expressed in the first episode of the second season: Having heard rumors about his parentage, he confronts his mother. She dismisses it as gossip spread by his enemies. Whether he believed her or not we simply cannot tell. In the books he is not a POV character, so we don't know what his thoughts are. However ...

As per Game of Thrones TV series Wikia , he starts seeing the three eyed raven in dreams after fall. Bran begins to have a recurring dream in which a three-eyed raven flies into the crypts of Winterfell. However, if fall triggers this event it is not known. But he started sleeping morea and deeply after fall, that may be one of reason. Or It may be ...

Prior to the fall, none of Bran's Warging nor Greensight abilities had manifested themselves. The most he had shown was a stronger than usual affinity with his (then unnamed) direwolf, which is an ability he shared with the rest of his siblings. After his fall, those abilities started to show up. The warging ability was not something unique to him. The rest ...

Although various iterations of Hulk exist, the common denominator is that increased anger = increased strength. During Age of Ultron, Iron Man attempts to reason with the beast whilst it is rampaging through Johannesburg. During these futile negotiations, he mentions Banner before quickly changing direction, realising he has angered Hulk (which isn't going ...

So I don't think the other answers, although good, actually address why a female M (they're more about why Judi Dench to which the answer is Stella Rimmington). To answer why a female M, we need to look at both the history of Bond pre-Judi Dench, and also the film GoldenEye itself. Prior to GoldenEye the previous two Bonds had been a mixed success. Roger ...

He started to have the dreams after the fall, when he was in a coma caused by it. From the books wikia: While Bran is comatose, an attempt is made on his life by an unnamed catspaw. (...) In the meantime, during the coma, Bran has many visions, including a hazy memory of his falling from the tower and a three-eyed crow that tells him it can teach ...

I think of the Hulk-Banner relationship like an inversion of our own mind's frontal cortex and mammalian hind-brain. The hind brain is like a simple, childish animal; it doesn't think very far ahead and is only really interested in itself and it's own wants and needs. It acts reflexively and without restraint. The frontal-cortex (the bit where humanity ...

I wouldn't say that he's the most unpredictable character... Rather he's a character whos 'purpose' hasn't been made clear yet. He seems to playing 'the long game' and keeping his cards close to his chest. At the moments the 'moves' he's making in the game don't seem to be revealing a purpose but (I suspect) that sooner or later the pieces will fall into ...

The final scenes of The Age of Ultron show a self-controlled Hulk fleeing in a jet because they (Hulk and Banner) don't want to risk Black Widow's life in a dangerous relationship. Banner says Hulk is "another guy" because when he is Hulk he cannot control his emotions and actions, but it seems both personalities share their memories and even being Hulk ...

When we talk about Hulk we think about some extraterrestrial, mindless, angry (very angry indeed!) entity but the simple fact is if we see the guy as a simple innocent infant (yeah I know it's difficult but I mean just 'mentally infant') with extraordinary body size and physical capabilities he is just an ordinary soul stuck in another human being trying to ...

Marvel Cinematic Universe Hulk has had very little character development, and even less actual dialog to which to justify any emotion. The current state of Banner/Hulk is purely self-preservation. MCU Hulk hasn't shown any emotion good or bad towards his other half, or signs that he dislikes being Banner for long times. MCU Hulk is essentially just the rage ...

The Wights have no free will. Whether they also lose their memories is never explicitly stated, but we can try a guess (primarly based on the books); Othor was an experimented ranger of Castle Black during his life, he knew that the most important man there was the Lord Commander and where to find him. As a Wight, he tried to kill the Lord Commander. It ...

In Season 3, Episode 9, "Rains of Castamere", Bran asks Rickon and Osha to head to the Last Hearth, seat of House Umber, who are sworn to House Stark. They left in the night, separating from Bran, Hodor, Meera and Jojen. Note that Jon Umber "the Greatjon", head of House Umber, unlike in the books, is not present at the Twins during the events of the Red ...

Her ability to levitate herself comes out of nowhere in the movie, I assume to enhance her dramatic entrance in the final scene. So there's no real explanation for why she doesn't ever try to do it earlier. In particular, there were times when levitating herself would have been very useful, such as However, Wanda's major character development during the ...

It all depends on if the show follows the storyline of the books. Rickon & Bran leave each other much earlier in the books. In the second book, A Clash of Kings, Osha takes Rickon away to an unknown location immediately following Ramsay's sack of Winterfell. The fifth book, A Dance with Dragons, we are informed of Rickon's location. Theon's mute ...

It is not clear anywhere in movie to what religion she belonged. She was shown as orphan, it may be possilbe she never knew what religion her parents belonged to. As far as her name Latika is concerned, it is used by both muslims and hindus. It seems the director didn't want to show her as associated with any religion. If you look at her life, most of the ...

Latika was not muslim. The name 'Latika' is prevalent in India for hindu girls, although this name is not very common. Secondly, in India, several muslim men have married hindu women, so that is not an alient concept either.

Here is another theory: Mr Robertson is the original and he implanted himself as a genetic time bomb paradox to fix a greater issues that are never discussed in the film, because they never happened! Mr Robertson seems to have an uncanny resemblance to the Barkeep. There is that scene when they are both looking out and Mr Robertson tells him about the way ...

BBC Radio 4 has provided the Shipping Forecast on long wave since time immemorial. This is broadcast for use by all shipping around the British Isles. There are many people on land in Britain who listen to the shipping forecast even though they never go near the sea. The forecast always takes the same form, a gentle litany of sea areas, wind strength, wave ...

It's comical usage of the name PK, which is a common name as Pankaj Kumar or Prashant Khare and so on, also means drunk. When he asks questions to people which seem absurd to a common man, they ask if he is drunk (bhai pi ke he ka). And continuosly being asked the same Amir Khan eventually starts believing that maybe he is known as PK on earth, somehow earth ...

I believe he buried that ring when he learned that his ancestor fought on the losing side. He buried that ring because he was dissappointed, because he thought he is the descendant of winners, not losers. He buried it because he didn't want to be a loser, but to win the trials that awaits him. When he received the new ring, it didn't symbolize the loser, ...

Nice question. Whether or not he was a playboy is hard to tell, because there is nothing definitive told in the story about Raj's backstory, but it is certainly suggested that he was a guy who could easily flirt with girls and certainly goes after them. Look at this song and start watching from 2:43. Basically this song introduces the character Raj. ...

From the green band trailer, Deadpool certainly seems to be self aware as a character in a film and does break the fourth wall. In one of the fight scenes he looks directly into camera and says "Cue the music." at around 1:28. This bit is omitted from the red band trailer (NSFW), which is what most people seem to be watching. ...

I believe you are correct. So does the MASH wiki: In many episodes, Mulcahy is seen wearing a "Loyola" hoodie. This makes sense in that Mulcahy was a Jesuit and Loyola is a Jesuit school. In the final episode of the series, however, Mulcahy is seen wearing a "Wesleyan" sweatshirt; Wesleyan University, the alma mater of actor William Christopher, ...

In the late 70s early 80s, the colombians cut off the cubans from the cocaine smuggling trade. Cuba was the "middle man" and when the colombians decided to keep all the profit, that's when the drug wars began. I hope this answer from Yahoo will help you to understand Tony's hate for Colombians. Besides that Tony is considered that they are not good for ...

The little princess from Days Of Future Past is Lorna Dane aka Polaris. It can't be no one else, but Lorna Dane. It's the only sibling we know from the twins and who also is Magneto's daughter. It's Lorna, Princess Lorna.

This is to build on Jake's excellent answer. The "average" American officer basically tops out at Major, e.g. Major Nelson in "I dream of Jeannie." Around the age of 40, an American Major has two choices: He can leave the army on half pay as Major. He can remain a "career" Major, and be rewarded with a final promotion to Lt. Colonel, around age 50, ...

In Pokemon black and white, episode 1-7 a female snivy uses attract on pikachu and it worked. Right after a character named iris says "it worked on pikachu so snivy has to be a girl!" And then later in the show says "attract only works on Pokemon of the opposite gender".

According to the Penny Dreadful Wikia... yes, there is one... She (and her mother) are "Nightcomers", which is another name for a witch but specifically refers to a witch who has devoted herself to the devil, gaining additional powers: Nightcomers are women who were once daywalkers, but have since become devoted servants of the Devil. They have the ...

While watching this scene, I always got the impression that he knew he was finished. Taking on four fully armored knights is no small feat, no matter how accomplished a swordsman you are. If he's confident that he is about to die (or at least that it's a likely possibility), it doesn't matter at all what sword he's using. His objective here is to delay ...

As a writing device, it's far funnier to let the viewers imagination run away with the wild descriptions that Howard gives. Additionally, by not showing Howards mother, the writers are able to characterize and describe her any way they like, without having to find an actor who lives up to that description. Howard repeatedly describes his mother as having no ...

Well here is my take on it. The mind stone has an extremely strong and undirected "power of mind". This causes a symbiotic relationship between the the stone and the entities around it. When you are near the stone your mental abilities are increased. This made Strucker more intelligent and enhanced the psychic powers of Scarlet Witch when she was near the ...

According to the Hogan’s Heroes Wikia site page on Colonel Wilhelm Klink his ascent through the ranks went as follows; emphasis is mine and parenthesis English rank equivalents as well: He became a Hauptmann (Captain) in 1920, Major in on December 25, 1924, and finaly Oberstleutnant (Lieutenant Colonel) in 1929, a rank he would still hold when made ...

I think you might be mixing up continuities. The Hulk saved Iron Man in the first movie, and shows other signs of lucidity between the two movies. Also, he was not "found." The World Security Council (and Fury) had never lost track of him. And the whole leaving town thing? I think that just harkens back to the old TV show; nothing to do with the current MCU. ...

Hulk is based on comic character known for his anger being out of his control. In fact, intially he converts into Hulk only when he gets angered by someone. He started controlling himself in Avenger first time which leaded to many questions e.g. this and other . So Bruce Banner prefers to live away from city either alone in forests or some peaceful tribes ...

Hulk is a threat to any living being next to him. At the end of every movie there is a war or battle, etc. He feels bad about himself after incidents like that, so he leaves. But the truth that Hulk is a hero and saviour of humanity doesn't change, so he comes back to help. But he can't and won't attach to anybody because of his condition.

Jack's comment is about the fact that his father has lived to be an "Old Pirate" you will notice several times through the series that pirates don't generally live long enough to enjoy the fruits of their ill-gotten gains, which Captain Teague has done. Captain Teague's comment is a bit more cryptic. He is revealing a crack in his swagger here. He admits ...

In one of the initial promotional videos, you could find that Bhallaladeva sitting on the thrown, while Amarendra Bahubali(saying by the minister sitting on the front row) is swinging the sword. In another frame you would find the younger Bhallaladeva rising from the thrown and shouting out babhuali. In both the frames Shivagami is not visible. So might be ...

It's supposed to show that he is a master of time, probably as a mention/quality to his past life. Time here demonstrates attention to detail, habits and schedules. This is also seen in older movies like The Matrix Reloaded with The Architect Star Trek with Spock or even more recently White Rose in Mr. Robot (eps1.7_wh1ter0se.m4v) Time is their weapon ...

In the conversation between Kattappa and the middle eastern king, the king offers to buy Kattappa his freedom to which Kattappa refuses saying that no money in the world could buy his freedom. His fore fathers have vowed to protect the kingdom of Mahishmati and he would die serving the king as a slave to keep his promise. Well this is a poor attempt at ...

Although there are historical figures in this movie, you just have to accept the fact that the time line is never going to add up. I agree that Francis is more than likely Francis I and Henry is Henry II. Since the characters in the movie are extremely loosely based on historical figures, you just have to take it with a grain of salt that the time line ...
