5 mistakes in season 2

(5 votes)

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.

Ice Station Winslow - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Eddie and Carl are out ice fishing, you can tell the background is just a wall. If you look towards the bottom, you can see the line all the way across that would make it look like a wall of scenery.

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.

The Crash Course - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Urkel throws the baseball at the lamp, the shadow of the boom mic can be seen moving from right to left on the wall that the closet door is on, and then moves back in the opposite direction until it is pulled out of view as Carl screams "What happened!?" (00:22:22)

Carl: Go home! Go home! Go home!
Steve: I don't have to take this. I'm going home.

Show generally

Question: In the mistakes section it mentions that Richie's mother, Rachel, and the Winslow's younger daughter, Judy, disappeared without a trace. Was there ever any explanation?

Answer: It is said that as Steve Urkel became a more popular character on the show, Judy became less important to the storylines, plus either her or her parents were demanding more money, causing her to be removed from the show entirely.

Answer: No. Call it "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome". A character is written off the show without any explanation at all.
