Revealing mistake: When Clara is filming her kids, we see her daughter operate the car. When she's supposed to have put the car in gear and have driven forward, you can see the scenery move in the background, showing that the car was stationary and the camera was just violently moved to the right to simulate the act of the car moving.
Trivia: The first season was extremely tightly budgeted and hectic to organize. Much of the season was filmed in the homes of creator Felicia Day and a few other crew members since set-space could not be afforded. Props and set dressing were typically acquired by dumpster-diving and picking up junk off the side of the road. And co-star Sandeep Parikh was partially cast because he was the only person Felicia Day knew that had guaranteed access to video-cameras that the production could use.
Trivia: Felicia Day spent several months trying to write the first season, but was unable to focus and had only accomplished a few character bios and a few rough pages of script. She eventually had a panic attack one night in December after becoming overwhelmed, and resolved that she would finish the first draft by the year's end, or else she would consider the project a failure and abandon it. She forced herself to work all day, every day on the script and finished the entire first season on New Year's Eve- having written almost everything start-to-finish in only a few week's time. She then honed the script over the following few months.
