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.

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.

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.

Ice Station Winslow - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Carl, Eddie, and Steve are out ice fishing. At one point Carl falls through the "ice" and you can clearly see that the "ice" is made of some sort of styrofoam. It looks like the stuff used for packaging. The snow looks just as fake.
