Suggested correction: The reason why the music is different when Piper is dancing on top of the bar in the memory of the episode "Cat House" is because once the series had ended, any music that was used during the course of the series the license had ended and could no longer be used, with the future reproduction of DVDs of the series. All music that was used including the theme song was replaced, all with the exception of the scenes of the many different bands that performed at P3, which were kept and along with the show's outro music, which was composed by the show production staff Jay Gruska. Any TV networks that air the show will still have the original music, but other video media platforms such as Netflix, will have the new changes to it.

Baby's First Demon - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: Right after the Hawker demon attacks, Piper picks the baby up and the head of the doll is covered and you can't see the face; a quick change in camera angles shows the baby's face and the blankets are all arranged and folded to frame the baby and no time has elapsed to allow this to happen. Also, the doll used as the baby double is much smaller than the baby and is very noticeable in shots that switch back and forth between the covered doll and real baby.
