Seven - Who Pays the Electric Bill?
When Morgan freeman & Brad Pitt investigate the 1st victim (gluttony), there's no electricity in the house.
When Morgan Freeman revisits the crime scene later, he flicks up temporary police lights which can be seen in the kitchen.
Yet, when he opens the fridge, the light inside the fridge is on...
furthermore, the small orange table light in the background is lit up as well.
If the police had put the electricity back in the entire house, why would they leave temporary spots light to illuminate the room (when the main light should work) and now that the tenant is dead, who would pay the electric bill anyway?
a small inconsistency which takes nothing away from the film :-)

Just because one light doesn't work, you shouldn't assume that the electricity doesn't work.

I noticed this too. However I chalked it up to maybe the lights just burned out and the killer never replaced the bulbs. Either that or maybe the killer intentionally didn't want the lights in the kitchen on because of the what was happening, and in his own words "a disgusting man who if you saw him on the street you'd point him out to your friends..."

In Germany a man has been discovered to have been sitting behind a working television for ten years while he was dead. His parents payed all the electricity bills. He also had a Christmas tree that had lights programmed to be from 12:00 till 18:00. During the summer the lights weren't seen. During the winter people could see the lights of the Christmas tree and thought the lights were switched on by the man 'living' in the house.

If you'll rewatch the movie, when the detectives first come into the house, the TV sets are on. Obviously, the electricity is on, just one of the lights doesn't work.
