Did You Know?


This one was edited from its original showing in October, 2017. The resume for Beverly is clearly changed from 1966 to present to the 1/31/18 re-airing now showing 1968 to present which alters the time for Erica entering college in 1986 instead of 1984. If you compare the two airings from blue-ray to Hulu, the edit is clearly noticeable. See more »


As the episode starts, there are two successive shots of someone operating a shelf full of video cassette rewinders in the video store. Careful inspection of the shots, such as looking at the candy jars on the top shelf and the buttons and logos on the rewinders, reveals that the second shot is just a flipped version of the first shot.
