Beverly Hills, 90210 picture

Show generally

Other mistake: When the show aired in 1990, in the pilot episode Brenda falls for Jason. She later on reveals herself to be a "16 year old junior" in high school. Season 2 opens up with the gang on summer break which technically would make them going into their senior year. It wasn't until Season 3 that they were going into their senior year. They graduated in 1993 from West Beverly but the show debuted in 1990 so technically they should have been sophomores.

The Andrea Doria - S8-E10

Other mistake: The tenant board member tells George that Mr. Eldrige in apartment 8C has decided he wants the new apartment. However, the new apartment in question has a 3-digit number - 808 I believe. This indicates that the building would not have single digit numbers and letters (Such as 5E, 8C, etc.) as part of its numbering system.

Safety in New York (or, Bertie Sets Sail) - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Tuppy goes to turn off the burglar alarm for Wooster, it's behind a hidden panel with a sign saying "Alarm Switch" above the panel. Why bother putting the switch behind a concealed panel if you're then going to label it? (Unless you're doing it for a viewing audience). (00:35:00)
