Girls Vs. Suits - S5-E12

Corrected entry: Cindy's claim that there is a policy against faculty and students dating is right, but according to the website of Columbia university it doesn't apply to a relationship between Ted and her. Excerpt from the policy on consensual romantic and sexual relationships between Faculty and Students of Columbia University: "It is the policy of the University that no faculty member shall have a consensual romantic or sexual relationship with a student over whom he or she exercises academic or professional authority."

Correction: Ted actually points out to Cindy that because he is not her professor there's no real issue, but Cindy still shoots him down. Presumably it's because Cindy is actually attracted to women (which the audience won't find out until later), but can't actually admit it to herself and instead looks for excuses to sabotage her relationships with men.

Subway Wars - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When Ted uses his laptop to get directions to the restaurant, Bing shows Los Angeles (where it's filmed) as their current location, instead of NY where the show is set. (00:02:15)

Suggested correction: Depending on the location settings on his laptop, they could be giving a false reading. My laptop shows I'm in Cardiff Wales while in fact I'm nowhere near.

The show was actually filmed on a film set in Los Angeles which is probably why the laptop says Los Angeles as the current location. This most probably slipped past the editing crew.
