Correcting errors in popular culture books

Reading my Slayer Trivia book last night, it struck me that there have been many occasions where I have taken a red pen to the margins of a text to correct some error. The sad thing is that, whereas Cloud's marginalia tends to be on opinions/ideas in political and philosophy books, mine are inevitably in books on pop culture or in film synopses/reviews (Sight and Sound, that means you).

No, it WASN'T that episode you fool!
That was IRONIC!
No that ISN'T what happened!

Am I alone in finding I get most irked by the silly things in life?
