Not my favorite show by any means, but in Taina the child that plays Santito has changed into a kid that looks nothing like the previous one.

There once was a show called The Simpsons
Had Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa on
We got quite a fright
It had gone kinda shite
Episodes of S11 were the worst ones

 tongue

Homer's stupidity in recent episodes of The Simpsons must count as a plot change. The family aren't even recognisable any more from the early 90's.

Also, (UK only) The Bill which has gone all soapy with characters being killed off and having affairs and stuff. It used to be a realistic, funny, believeable cop show. Then they changed the cast and made each episode twice as long and run on for days, and they were dealing with firearms and huge drug deals every week. Purr-lease!!

Let's pick holes?

Count me out.
KENNEDY, don't give Dirty Boy anything to work with.

Can't think of any TV shows so here goes:

Star Wars: A New Hope, you'd think C3PO would have noticed the name Skywalker when he met Luke and said something along the lines of "Excuse me sir, but I believe I knew your father Anakin Skywalker, my creator and first master!! What a coincidence!!"
Maybe I'm missing something that will be explained in Episode III.

Superman: In Batman Beyond Superman seems to have aged slightly, at a slower rate than a human. However, in the comics he ages like a normal man, right alongside bats, who is of simialiar age.

Something's wrong with the X-Files opening credits.  Every episode is called "The Truth is Out There."

Like how droids get memory-wiped every once in a while, usually?

In The Simpsons, the Simpsons get a pool one summer.  The next episode it disappears.

I agree that there's something wrong with the X-Files, but not the credits but the actors... noticed that they changed? But it's not my favourite show any longer since that...   cry

In the Simpsons, one episode explains Homer and every oter male in his family is stupid was due to the "Simpson gene" (which is flawed in itself because Herb was far from stupid), and in another episode explains he is stupid due to a crayon that got lodged in his brain when he was a kid.

I agree, The Bill has gone downhill recently, it used to be a programme about police officers solving crimes, their personal lives were never mentioned, now all we see seems to be their personal lives, the crime solving seems to just be a background plot.

They showed old episodes of the Bill from 1990 on Irish TV a few years ago, and I adored them. The new ones are good, but not as good. Also, I miss Steve Loxton and Dave Quinnan. They were cool  big grin

I agree. All that "Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise" is a sad omen to the rest of the galaxy as so much in the films you have a Rebel just standing there as elite cadre of Imperial troopers hopelessly miss him/her. But then, they are using British guns so that's hardly suprising  tongue j/k

Bond films can go horribly wrong with the plots even during just one film. Moonraker just seemed like parodies of The Dollar Series, Hitchkock, Star Wars and 2001 that had horribly crashed into each other on a darkened road and that had suffered terrible injuries...  hmpf

Don't get me started on the Simpons.

Other plot lines have been that all old British soaps used to be all lovy-duvy but have turned so very pradicatably violent. "Oh you know that nice pleasant Yorkshire village? You know it's fallen back in the ratings, so what we'll do is blow up half of the village and in the other half we have one couple where the man beats the wife, another girl gets raped and a guy everyone hates will get shot by some mysterious gunman/woman who will always turn out to be the least likely one of ever commiting a crime...."
"And that's just the first week!"
Really?
Langweilig!  sleep

There are still some cool chartacters, Like PC Des Taverner, sure he has some minor personality problems but he is still cool, I hope he is in it for a long time   evil laugh

Des is brilliant. Although, since this is the picking holes thread, he did kill six cops, which mars his brilliance a little.

Does everyone know that program called the 'Rugrats'? Well the babies in that are supposed to be 2 and 3 year old. The show was first put into production in 1991 making them babies 13 and 14 years old now. They should be well into high school by now and yet they're still running around a playen  wink

Actually, they ARE doing a spinoff with the babies as preteens...

Yep, and the Simpsons is the height of reality.  laff

Kryten, are you serious about that spin-off show?

Wasn't there a two-parter where they became older? Was that like a test pilot or something?? It would screw up all chances of bringing in new babies.

I dont know about a 2 parter but there's definately been an episode where they become older. There's been loads of series of the Rugrats. I've seen every single episode except for the really new ones. They're not as good as they used to be. They must be running out of ideas  smile

Rugrats crawled down the drain when Dil was born. I liked it when the babies just had adventures. Now Dil's just a big spitting, farting and rattle-weilding anchor for them. He just spoils all the adventures. And don't even get me started about Kimi.

It's reverse shooting theory. Good guys can hit a moving, high up opponent from miles away. Bad guys can't hit the good guys from point blank range because the good guy was "very lucky!"


Yeah, right....

AND, how C3PO said something like "With all the adventures we've been through..." in Episode IV too.

Anyway, it's my plot hole, I don't go round taken your's away do I?   tongue

First season of Saved By The Bell, they are in middle school in Indiana. Their principal is Mr. Belding, Miss Bliss is their teacher, and Jesse is nowhere to be seen.

One year later, suddenly they're in a californian high school, Mr. Belding is STILL the principal, Miss Bliss is nowhere to be seen, and Jesse is suddenly one of Zach's best friends since childhood? Does that make sense?
