The Good Fight (a.k.a. A Perfect Match) - S5-E8

Factual error: At the beginning of the show, Doug states that even though it's November, it's never too late to golf. A lot of this episode's scenes are outside as Lucy and Carter run around looking for a patient's father - the flowers are still blooming and the trees are full of green leaves, with only the slightest of autumn foliage, and few dead leaves on the ground. Considering the locale of Chicago, it looks like mid-September, certainly nothing like November.
