    Friends:
    Joey is a regular on the soap opera "Days Of Our Lives"- but it's taped in LA and "Friends" is set in NYC. Characters birthdays also change on the show.
    I never noticed that, good one!

    Sex And The City:
    In the opening scene, the bus with Carrie's picture on it (in a pink tutu) shows a bus full of people but as it turns a corner it's mysteriously empty.

    this may not totally count, but I hate in reality shows where the conversations between people are edited and then they dont flow naturally. Youre not supposed to know theyve been edited and are supposed to think ur following a normal convo. The only other give aways other than the interruption of the natural flow are extraneous variables (the cigarette one cast member is smoking goes from freshly lit to gone within one sentence exchange, or physical postions change, or a plate of food goes from full to empty etc) but it makes me nuts

    the outside facade of the house does not match the inside lay out at all.
    1) the garage is in the front on the right side in the facade shots but inside the house is in the very back of the house attached to the
    kitchen.

    2) the lanai is in the front on the right side next to the garage in the facade shots but inside the house is on the far left side of the house

    How can cops in TV shows (and in movies often, too) afford the often lavish
    (or at least big) houses and apartments they live in?
    The only shows that I know of where visits to the bathroom were a normal,
    every day, recurring practice are: All In The Family, Roseanne, Starsky and
    Hutch, According to Jim....... Anybody know more?

    I totally agree wth the first point when the homes dont match with the income. Most often its much more lavish than it should be, although sometimes its the opposite--like on Melrose Place where Heather Locklear, who plays a huge advertising exec and then ultimately an owner lives in what is supposed to be a 600$/mth apt. However she does ultimately buy the building. But its still the same with the other characters, some of whom are private practicing doctors, chief of staff MDs, etc. Some even need roommates.



    In 90210 I thought it was kind of sketchy how 1/2 the characters move into the Walsh house--especially Steve Sanders who I thought for sure would have his own baller pad on the beach somewhere since he was played up as the richest kid on the show.

    I thought it was lame how they made Kelly Taylor go from being a ditzy, sexy, snob to a deep, fresh faced holier-than-thou. I can understand transitioning her out of the shallow character from early seasons but it was way too extreme imo

    They also did this on 7th Heaven... after Mary left, the Camden House became more like the town orphanage. Every time I tuned in, there were one or two new people living with the Camdens because their parents had kicked them out or they just couldn't afford a house. It got so ridiculous and confusing that I had to stop watching.

    Another thing that always bothered me about this show was the episode where Mary (Jessica Biel) asks her BROTHER Matt (Barry Watson) to teach her how to kiss and then tries to share a passionate kiss with him in the driveway. When you have two actors playing brother and sister, you can't play up their "natural chemistry."

    I love ABC soaps! Like some one else said, the kids on them develop SORAS(Soap Opera Rapid Age Syndrome), LOL! It irks me. One day they go up to the attic at age 4 and come down 19yrs old! Or they go to their bedroom, never to be seen or heard from again!

    Not to mention, recently on GH, Liz was in a scene, same day, same dress, talking to someone with her hair all curled, next scene, her hair is flat and not one curl!

    Major characters are there, never to be heard from or seen again. Again, General Hospital, the Priest Father Mateo, he was in the hospital and never seen again, same with Professor Pervy Pete!

    Soaps are so known for no continuity. One scene they have two earrings on, next, they are missing one or they are different. A classic one and I can't remember if it was the soap One life to live, An actress was wearing a dress, she goes to answer the door and the camera shows who is outside the door, and when the actress opens it, she's magically wearing pants and a tank top!!! Wow, she's Superwoman!! All in a matter of seconds! LMAO!

    IRKS ME!

    Yep, those are things that irritate the hell out of me with As The World
    Turns, too. All characters in their thirties (or there about) have at least
    1 child. But, despite some of these characters being stay at home moms,
    with blue collar husbands: they ALL have nannies, sitters etc. etc. at
    ALL times. Or when they get visitors and they ask where the children are,
    they´re always either playing upstairs, or outside, or have a sleepover.
    Then, my favorite family on that soap - the Snyders - were a mother
    with six adult children, 1 adopted, 5 natural. Some were married with
    kids, others dating, but it meant that the family kitchen was ALWAYS
    full with people. Yet, one after one the kids "moved" to different
    states and now they don't even call on the phone. It's totally ridiculous!

    ^^^So true! Or another thing, daytime and nightime. People are always dressed nice with heels on, spiked and all, just to walk around the town. They go to work and come home, never changing clothes or putting on pajama's.

    Heck, I come home, walk in the door and put on sweats and a tank top, can't wait to get out of those clothes. On tv, it could be midnight and their all still prancing around in designer clothes and heels.

    Damn, at least kick you heels off! LMAO!

    And almost every woman sleeps with full make-up on. Worse even:
    they are patients in the hospital IN FULL MAKE-UP, lie on the operating
    table IN FULL MAKE-UP!!!! Doctors in the hospital, no matter what
    their expertise, help cure EVERYTHING, EVERY emergency to any
    body part
    Everybody has a job, but you hardly see them work.
    The weirdest thing in some soaps is that - even though it all
    plays in ONE town - it's like various stories play in different
    time zones. I mean: one couple is talking to their child's teacher
    at school AFTER a school day, while two blocks away somebody
    else is having breakfast and down the street they're having a
    sleepover!
    Then jobs: people are all jack of all trades, the way they switch
    between totally unrelated professions. They start off as a cop,
    switch to managing a newspaper, start a fashion label and
    finish as District Attorney Welcome to the world that
    is SOAP!

    All My Children

    Takes place in the fictional town of Pine Valley, Pennsylvania. Pine Valley is supposedly set in roughly the same area as Williamsport. What irks me to no end is whenever any of the characters go to the beach [and they seem to go there most during the winter months ... wtf?], you always hear the surf in the background. The surf?! Kind of odd considering there is no friggin' ocean in the vicinity.

    I always thought AMC was in Pine Valley New York!

    The only one I can think of was on Good Times. Florida, the mother, marries a man and moves to Arizona for his health. She returns to the series in the fall and there's no mention of her husband or anything.

    Hated that.

    At least they made fun of it. Whatever happened to the original Becky, did she die?
    I didn't realize it was a new Becky untill after the show ended.

    Another 90210 issue

    Thru out most of the shows duration, the Minnesota/mid west references are made re the walshes. And especially in the first season, fitting into the LA lifestyle is a major topic of the show. Whats weird is that the entire first season is all about how brenda doesnt have the right clothes, hairstyle, makeup, etc. They play up the money issue--that everyone else is rich and can afford haute couture but the walshs' dont have that kind of loot so brenda is SOL. HOWEVER, by the second season all of sudden brenda magically has the money to pimp around in all the right clothes and makeup and that aspect is never an issue again.
