Corrected entry: During the final montage of episode 4-16: "The End's Not Near, It's Here," the banners at Berkeley were welcoming the class of 2012. But this was fall of 2007, so four-year students would finish school in 2011.


Correction: Ryan is in the architecture program. It is a five year program, so the year is correct.

At a freshman orientation, the welcoming banners are for the student body at large, not the small number of students who will be entering a five-year program. In addition, Berkeley's architecture program since the 1960s actually is not a five-year program, but rather a "four plus two," where students complete a non-professional bachelor of arts degree in four years, followed by a professional master of architecture degree after two more years. So that's four or six years, not five.

Corrected entry: In the episode 1.22, "The L.A.", Ryan tells Luke several times (most explicitly while Luke plays pool in the student union) that he will be spending the day with Marissa, to give Luke a chance to break things off with Julie. Why, then, would Luke just walk into Ryan's pool house at the end of the episode and announce in a loud voice that he was "done having sex with Julie Cooper" without making sure that Marissa had already left? Since he had just come from Marissa's house he knew she wasn't there, and he didn't know anyone but Ryan had gone to LA with her, there's nowhere else she could have been. Even Luke isn't that stupid - it's designed to facilitate the character leaving two episodes later.


Correction: Ryan knew that Luke would have a hard time breaking it off with Julie, that's why Ryan called so many times, so Luke went to Ryans poolhouse to tell him it was over in person. He just assumed that after LA, Marissa went to her best friend, Summer's house, as usual.
