When you’re watching a show on television, you expect there to be a certain level of professionalism and attention to detail, but the truth is, everyone is human – which is exactly how you get mistakes like these.

That said, it’s still a business, so someone’s head probably rolled because these errors are pretty egregious – and downright impossible to forget once you’re aware of them. So this is your warning: turn back now if you want to keep a clean slate!
