* OutOfOrder: Nearly all the episodes in season five were aired in a seemingly random order compared to the order they were written in. This normally wouldn't be noticeable, except in "Dick Puts the ID In Cupid", he references being naked under a table at a function Mary organised. Had they aired i the order they were written in, this would make sense. However, in the order they are aired, he's referencing something that hasn't happened yet, or for first time viewers makes it appear to be a NoodleIncident.

* HighDefinition: Inexplicably, the Netflix and Hulu streams are remastered in high definition, complete with [[PanAndScan pan and tilt]]. As a result there's a number of awkwardly cropped shots (such as people with their head just in the bottom of the frame) as the show was filmed well before high definition, let alone widescreen, was common. On the upside, the opening title sequence has never looked so good.
