Best comedy TV mistakes of 2017
Continuity mistake: When the Krill shuttles land, they park on either side of the entrance to Epsilon station, but when the Orville crew are escaping, the Krill shuttles are gone momentarily (during the firefight), only to return to their proper places a moment later as the Orville shuttle takes off.
Continuity mistake: When Deborah is talking to Mrs. Chadwick, Mrs. Chadwick's hair keeps changing position and is either covering or not covering her name tag. And when the camera is on Deborah, we still see Mrs. Chadwick's head and she doesn't move it at all.
Factual error: In the opening sequence when Maddie is supposedly driving from Michigan through Ohio and back to Pennsylvania, you can very briefly spot the reflection of a "TD Canada Trust" in the car window. This is because the show is actually shot in Vancouver. In the United States the company is simply known as "TD Bank", which doesn't operate any branches in either Michigan or Ohio.
Other mistake: As Young Sheldon is a prequel series to Big Bang Theory, this episode is at odds with episode 2-13 of Big Bang Theory, "The Friendship Algorithm," in which Sheldon is unfamiliar with books like "How to Make Friends and Influence People," which he reads in this episode of Young Sheldon, produced nine years later but taking place twenty years earlier.
Audio problem: Right after Carol finishes studying by singing a rap to Katie, Katie congratulates her and Carol hurries out. They exchange several lines of dialogue, but it all appears to be dubbed. During most of the dialogue, each character's mouth is not shown when they speak. However, the cadence of Katie's moving jaw can still be seen from behind, and appears to last longer than the audible speech. Additionally, Katie and Carol can each be heard to speak when it can be glimpsed that their mouths are not moving.
Continuity mistake: Earlyish in S1:E4 "Growing Suspicion" there is a still photo of Christa Carlyle wearing a cast on her broken right leg. Early in this episode there is a quick motion shot of her handing out a T-shirt to another student. The cast is now on her left leg.
