Mad About You

Season 5 generally

Deliberate mistake: The first 10 episodes of Season 5 were shot in a totally different order than they were aired. As a result, Jamie's size during her pregnancy is very inconsistent at the beginning of the season. In particular, she gets much smaller between episode 8 and episode 9 because episode 9 was originally supposed to air earlier in the season.

Cake Fear - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In the 1991 flashback, Jamie is already engaged to Paul and is shown with long hair. However, in the 'Cold Feet' episode, Jamie is shown with short hair. Since the 'Cold Feet' episode was set in February of '91 and the flashback from this episode was set in late March or April of '91, these two episodes don't match up.
