Season 4 generally

Continuity mistake: Several episodes in season 4 have scenes that take place immediately after the events of the final episode of season 3. However, the 7 years that passed in real life between seasons 3 and 4 are made apparent by the appearance of some characters. Notably Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat who had visibly matured out of their teenage years, and Portia de Rossi, who had plastic surgery on her face.
