The Good Place

...Someone Like Me as a Member - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Eleanor gets offered a permanent position at the company she's working for she's holding a cup of coffee on the desk in front of her. After she says "I'm good" the shot changes and she has a Rubik's Cube in her hand. The shot changes back and she's holding the coffee cup again. (00:17:10)


Somewhere Else - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode while Michael is talking to the Judge, he does not have a Bad Place pin on his left lapel. However, at the end of the previous episode, as he and Janet come through the portal he is wearing one. On another note, not sure how he got the pin. As Shawn was talking to Michael in episode 11, he wasn't wearing one either and Michael had given his own pin to Eleanor. (00:00:01)

Somewhere Else - S2-E12

Factual error: As Eleanor walks in the corridor to Chidi's office at St. John's University, there's an exit sign mounted in the ceiling above her - a North American style red Exit sign. As she is in Australia, it should either a white on green Exit sign or an international "running man" style sign, as North American style signs were never legal in Australia. (00:20:55)


The Snowplow - S3-E3

Factual error: When Chidi activates the superboard, one of the items under Local News is "Rep. Sackett indicted on 231 counts of fraud." Lower house members aren't referred to as Representatives in Australia, the correct title would be MP. (00:09:13)


Janet(s) - S3-E9

Audio problem: While Accountant Steve Merchant is getting angry at Michael his words do not match his jaw motions during the shot from behind Merchant's face wherein he says "Now if you'll excuse me". (00:17:10)

The Book of Dougs - S3-E10

Other mistake: When Michael is looking at the 2009 report about Doug giving his Grandmother flowers, the net total for the action is -4 points. But the totals are off. The positives add up to about 73 points, but just the negatives that we see are 162, making the net total at least -89. While the header implies only the "top" points are known, the numbers start tailing off drastically after the first few, so there's no way there are enough not mentioned to make up the difference, otherwise they'd be classified as "top" too.

What We Owe to Each Other - S1-E6

Jason: [Chidi walks into Jason's bud hole] Oh, hey, homie. Thanks for your advice. I'm about to give Tahani the best gift ever. Check it. [Shows a painting of Frank Caliendo].
Chidi: What?
Jason: She likes impressionist paintings, right? I got her a painting of the best impressionist of all time, Frank Caliendo. He can do it all. Fat Al Pacino, fat Jerry Seinfeld, regular John Madden.

Season 1 generally

Trivia: The cast were sworn to secrecy to not reveal the big twist at the end of season one. Reportedly, all the cast members were really good at keeping the secret... except Ted Danson, who couldn't help but give away the twist anytime he tried to explain the show to someone.

Answer: No, he is fictional. The joke is that, despite being handsome and charming, Larry Hemsworth is so overshadowed by his brothers that nobody else has heard of him and he feels like a failure.
