Both Things Can Be True - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: Nicky is calling Miguel late at night on an iPhone 12 to his ear with the smartphone camera visible in the upper left. After Miguel picks up and acknowledges Nicky, the scene pans back to Nicky, who is now holding and speaking into his iPhone upside down. (00:56:15)


Clouds - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: Kate flies home overnight to California and when she arrives she has little to no makeup on. When Toby immediately takes to the garage where he has built an elaborate children's area for Jack, Kate is fully made up - lipstick, make up, and hair.


Katie Girls - S3-E3

Factual error: Randall flies out last minute across the country to Los Angeles to be at his sister's side for her surgery. The scene where he arrives at the hospital and meets up with her husband Toby in The Waiting Room is prefaced by an exterior shot of the supposed hospital building. The sign outside the hospital indicates the name as "Sutter Health Alta Bates Summit Medical Center," which is a hospital in Berkeley - the San Francisco Bay Area - about 400 miles north of Los Angeles.

Show generally

Question: How is the couple, mother played by Mandy Moore, able to adopt the orphaned kid? Given they're a poor couple with two kids already, wouldn't the hospital hold off on this for awhile and try locating the child's parents?


Answer: Where did you get that they were poor? they were middle class and had their own home.

Answer: Because that would not have made for an interesting TV series.
