* CaliforniaDoubling: Averted like ''whoa.'' Not only is the series both set and filmed in New York, but the episodes set in Paris were indeed shot in the City of Lights. The series doesn't film in California unless the scripts actually call for it (witness the backdoor pilot "Valley Girls" and the episodes with Serena on the West Coast).
** Not completely averted. Columbia University stood in for Yale in "New Haven Can Wait". Also, strangely, scenes in "The Townie" were set in Cornwall CT but filmed in Piermont NY (could this be a ChekhovsBoomerang?).

* ArtisticLicenseUniversityAdmissions: Compounding the show's depictions of Yale's admissions process in the second season's "New Haven Can Wait" is its completely inaccurate depiction of Skull and Bones. In real life the organization, like Yale's other secret societies, is exclusively composed of seniors, and rather than mugging and abducting prospective members when they visit campus as high school seniors they go to prospective members late in their junior year, wearing skull-faced makeup and black robes, to "tap" them with "Accept or reject?", which must be answered on the sot.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: The cast seems to live in the part of New York where no one has a New York accent and Chuck sounds strangely [[OohMeAccentsSlipping British]].
** Although the Humphreys are the biggest offenders as most of the cast is Upper Class so lack accents among them is not unheard of
