The first thing that comes to my mind is Tracy (Diana Rigg), the woman Bond (George Lazenby) marries in On Her Majesty's Secret Service:   [Source] The follow up film, Diamonds Are Forever , shows James Bond (Sean Connery) tracking down Blofeld in the pre-title credits, but it is only assumed that Bond is doing so out of revenge for Tracy's death. ...

When James Bond points his gun at Valentin Zukovsky it is clear that his gun is a Walter PPK. Notice there are no grooves on the side of the gun towards the back When Valentin's henchman points his gun at James, grooves can be seen on the side of the gun towards the back of the gun. This to me shows that the henchman is using a different gun and not a ...

The moon visited by the Prometheus, called LV-223, is not the same planet visited by the Nostromo in Alien, which is called LV-426. I believe that the latter was not named on screen until the second film, Aliens. So they are two different Engineer ships and two different dead Engineers. Similarly, the distress call/warning intercepted by the Nostromo was ...

Prometheus and Alien deliberately share a lot of themes, as well as the same universe, but they are not directly prequel and sequel (spoilers follow...) The Space Jockey in Alien is old enough to be fossilised. Possibly by the same events that wiped out the Engineers in Prometheus (2000 years ago according to Shaw's carbon dating) but too close to Alien's ...

OliverC s answer is great. Just adding something to make it more informative. Searched the net and found an interesting note on the continuity of the Bond film series. In 1995 producer Michael G. Wilson in a fan convention in New york stated: Bond films weren’t one big film series but rather a “series of series.” when asked about continuity of the ...

All the series of Blackadder are related in the sense that the main character is meant to be a descendent of the previous Blackadder, but in each case several generations apart - they are not the same person. Each generation is hundreds of years apart: Blackadder is set in the Middle Ages. The Prince Edmund character lives 1461–1498. Blackadder II is set ...

Each season is set in a different time, therefore it's not the same character: The Black Adder: An alternate history set during the period of the Wars of the Roses Blackadder II: Elizabethan London Blackadder the Third: During the Regency Period Blackadder Goes Forth: World War I, in the trenches of the Western Front     ...

During Thor we see Thor talking (as a child) about how he wants to wage war on the Frost giants, like his father (Odin). So we know that the Tesseract must have been lost already. Actually, what this shows us is that this is happening over a thousand years in the past. When Dr. Selvig is in the library, we see a book of Norse mythology. It has a ...

Reading up on this Marvel Universe article about Cosmic Cubes tells us that there is possibly more than one cube in the universe itself. If we are to believe that the Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999 as it is known in the Marvel Multi-verse) has similar canon then we can assume the same to be true that there is more than one Tesseract a.k.a. Cosmic Cube ...

The time of the division was marked by violent upheaval on Vulcan. It isn't hard to imagine the records being lost, or the Vulcans never making the connection between those warlike Vulcans who disappeared thousands of years earlier and the Romulan Star Empire. From the Wikipedia entry on Surak: During the "Time of Awakening" a Vulcan schism of those ...

The henchman's gun is a copy of the PPK that was produced in Soviet Russian known as the Makarov. It is also a larger caliber, a 9x18mm. I do believe that design is still being used by the Russian military to this day, as well as being a rather popular civilian gun. Thousands of them have been imported to the US.

There has never been enough detail provided in the episodes that have aired to date - there are a few hints and a few jokes along the way (like knocking down a wall and using a ramp) - but this one doesn't really have an answer currently. The boat "Diane" does have an answer as to what happened to it; In the episode "Kill Ari" (3x02) Jen goes home with ...

Not much time at all. Apparently less than a month. The first season closes with Dany hatching her dragons, and the second season opens with Tyrion assuming his position as Hand of the King. According to this fan-created spreadsheet (WARNING major spoilers for viewers who haven't read the books) the hatching happened in the first month of year 299 AL, 20th ...

I would hazard a guess that, if you were a kid in the 70's/80's that you may just not have watched many of the serialized shows. (of course, I was a kid in the 80's and remember watching all of these...) Off the top of my head, from the 80's, you've got: Hill Street Blues St. Elsewhere Cheers M.A.S.H. Moonlighting Family Ties L.A. Law ...

For the same reason that his eyes are blue in every other film: Peter Jackson cast Legolas as a blue-eyed elf. For evidence, look at these countless screen captures showing Legolas. Note that his apparent eye color varies depending on his surrounding, as is often the case for people with blue or hazel eyes, perhaps leading to the impression that his eyes ...

There is a part in the episode at approx 12:30 where Kirk asks the Guardian if they are successful what will happen. The Guardian tells them all will be set back to normal and they will be returned as though nothing happened. The Guardian sends them back. Also notice they come back with uniforms back on, where at the point in the episode, Kirk and Spock do ...

From my understanding it's no plot inconsistency. At least it's explained in the episode. In one of the earlier episodes, the Doctor hides the TARDIS by shifting it out of time by a second or so, which causes it to disappear. To me, it's time locked in some way. Could this be the same or a similar effect? However, I don't think the Time Lock and Gallifrey ...

Ridley Scott has stated clearly before this movie was released that it is not a prequel to the Alien film. It takes place almost a hundred years before LV-426 is found. With that said, Ridley Scott has talked about making a trilogy of the Prometheus films. We can assume that the strange looking xenomorph shown at the end of Prometheus is an early ancestor ...

I'm not sure how there's any confusion about Professor X being in the wheelchair. He's clearly "shot" (bullet deflected) in the First Class movie, as well as being IN the wheelchair at the end. As for Emma's story, there was a lot of confusion about the character thanks to the Wolverine: Origins movie. There's a young girl being held captive by Stryker ...

Yes and no, although this version of an omnitrix exists in the final ep. of B10:UA, the Ben of the future of B10:UA who had knowledge of the events involving the temporal villian Eon is seen only using an Ultramatrix of the same design as the Ben of the present. While it is possible Ben simple returned to using the more combat oriented model in the future no ...

I prefer Marvel's solution to continuity: we live in a multiverse. Any stories that contradict each other must be taking place in parallel realities. It's nice to try to retcon conflicting stories as much as possible, to make ALL the stories work in just one world, but where that becomes implausible, the many-worlds interpretation is the ultimate fix. Even ...

Ever since hearing this theory a couple years back, I've been quite fond and supportive of it: while there are definite instances of supposed continuity, I was presented with the theory that "James Bond," much like 007, is just a code name. I believe it was actually an article on cracked.com.. Yes, here it is: When the 007 franchise launched in 1962, Sean ...
