A lot of work goes into a television show, though most of it doesn’t show up on the screen. Television shows can have crazy schedules and large episode orders, which makes them much more grueling than movie shoots.
On top of the deadlines and everything that television shows have to accomplish, they also have to make sure that their content is filled with mistakes.
For the most part, these errors don’t make it through to television, but sometimes it happens. They can be massive, like a whole plot line, or something minuscule like a continuity error.
The discovery of these mistakes can be innocent and humorous, or it can entirely remove a viewer from the experience. It’s of course ideal if these mistakes don’t happen at all, but sometimes these errors can make the show even better.
That being said, it’s impressive to see when a series is able to take an unavoidable mistake and actually turn it into a selling point. Suddenly this glitch isn’t a mistake at all anymore.
It takes a lot more guts to embrace a mistake than to try and hide it, but that doesn’t mean that it’s always possible.
However, there are definitely some unbelievable situations where mistakes turn out to not only be beneficial for TV shows, but they lead to the birth of a whole new character or story arc. It all comes down to how a situation gets spun.
