Mary Tyler Moore

Feeb - S2-E16

Factual error: In this episode, when the show opens, it shows the outside of a restaurant where the news team meets for lunch. If you look closely, there are palm trees on the left side of the screen next to the restaurant, almost hard to see because the tops blend into the roof of the restaurant. Everyone knows that because of its climate, Minneapolis does not have palm trees. Perhaps even more noticeable is the huge hotel looming above the restaurant that says "Sheraton Universal", a well known hotel attached to Universal Studios in Los Angeles.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the first episode, Mary gets the job as associate producer. Later in the series, Lou tells Mary that she got the job due to the awkward way she tried to cover a run in her nylon. At the job interview, Mary isn't even wearing pantyhose, she is wearing knee socks. You do not see her trying to cover up a run in her socks.
