Family Matters

Show generally

Continuity mistake: From the outside of the house, you can see the staircase and door are to the far left of the house. But from inside the house, you have a fireplace and the staircase to the right of the door. So you know it's not the same house they use in the show.

Scammed - S7-E21

Continuity mistake: During the scenes where they play Mortal Grandma (or whatever it's called), the characters' health bars don't change.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Whenever the characters in this sitcom fall through the roof, they end up on the living room floor. The house is a very conventional design with a second floor and an attic, so they should end up in the attic or on the second floor.

Bowl Me Over - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When the family arrives home from the bowling alley, it is dark and pouring rain. After the kids go to bed, Carl and Harriet go to the kitchen and talk. If you look out the windows, it's daylight.

Hot Wheels - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: Laura meets a guy named Ted supposedly for the first time. He is selling candy bars around the neighborhood and happens to knock on the Winslow family's door. Laura goes out on a date with him. However, Ted and Laura have already had several interactions, and have already dated and broken up in previous episodes in season 4.

Suggested correction: This is because the episodes were aired out of order. "Hot Wheels" was the 2nd episode produced for season 4 (production code 447802) and aired following the 15th and 13th produced episodes.

Dream Date - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: Laura says that Steve asked her to be his prom date when they were six years old. In other episodes, she has mentioned that she first met him as a blind date - their date in the first season.

Marriage 101 - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Steve buys the ring for Laura at the end of their class project, then sells it to Carl as a gift for Harriet. Then when he proposes to Laura he says it's the same ring from that day.

Food, Lies and Videotape - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning, Carl enters with a new video camera and we see a regular view of the scene mixed with POV shots from the camera as Carl narrates. When he's standing at the door with his bag, in the POV shots from the camera you can see that the door is open, but in the wide shots, it is closed.
