Continuity mistake: Luther goes to see Zoe and the house is an end terrace with a red door. Later he goes back and it's mid terrace with a black door.

Suggested correction: No, I don't think this is an error. I think the house with the red door is Luther and Zoe's marital home and the house with the black door is Mark's home.

That's what I thought, but how did he know where Mark lived?

Raising Hope picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the second episode Sabrina says the grocery store got bought and it was called "Howdy's" now or something like that (the uniform used to be red and then it was blue with those neck ties). In the episode where Burt, Jimmy and Virginia get kicked out, they visit the grocery store to steal food and they're wearing the blue uniform (as Howdy's grocery store) but it was way before Jimmy had Hope, and Hope was with him when the outfits were red.
