Every once in a while, production errors kind of sneak through the cracks and make it into the finished product. Eagle eyed fans spot them and call it out, immediately sending the gaffe into viral status.
We all remember the Starbucks cup that famously made its way into the final season of Game Of Thrones… and then in another final season error, a plastic water bottle.
Stranger Things, Breaking Bad, plenty of great shows have made similar mistakes, whether it’s items left on set, a production assistant or camera man in the background, and sometimes it’s even a historical accuracy error.
Most fans would never even notice if not for the internet’s ability to spread news like wildfire, but at the end of the day, it always makes for a bit of laugh.
Unless it’s incredibly stupid.
For example… an outdoor party in Montana… in January? C’mon…
During last night’s Season 5 premiere of Yellowstone, the hottest show on television, a handful of fans were quick to point out a pretty massive screwup by Taylor Sheridan and company.
Of course the big story heading into Season 5 is that John Dutton (Kevin Costner) has become the Governor of the state of Montana, and we even see him sworn in during Episode 1, “One Hundred Years Is Nothing.”
And following that inauguration ceremony, a big ol’ party at the Dutton Ranch with ol’ Shane Smith and the boys performing. The bunkhouse crew is decked out and off to some shenanigans with the fellas from Bar M Ranch, Ryan meets a potential future love interest in new character Abby (Lainey Wilson), and everybody is having a good ol’ time… outside… in Montana… in JANUARY?
Ummm… if you’ve been to Montana in January, and even if you haven’t, you know that it’s probably freezing and snowing there. Not exactly the kind of weather for a fancy outside party.
And since Governors in Montana (and pretty much every state) are generally elected in November and sworn in sometime in January, it should be pretty damn cold at the Dutton Ranch.
A number of folks were quick to call this out.
Granted, the show primarily films in the late spring and early summer so it’s not exactly surprising, but it does seem like quite the oversight, right?
Either way, snow or no snow, it’s damn good to have Yellowstone back.
Here’s a look at what we can expect on this new season:
