Riverdale is wild.

I think we'd all agree TV is pretty darn great. But sometimes, even the greatest of shows make mistakes.

So what's a TV mistake or inconsistency that took you some time to notice?

Maybe you never noticed as a kid that the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air house completely changed, but now it haunts you.

Or maybe it took you seasons to realize that not only were Polly and Jason in the same grade on Riverdale, but so were Polly's younger sister Betty and Jason's twin Cheryl.

Or maybe, one day, the fact that Chandler and Rachel met three separate times on Friends dawned on you and now it really gets in the way of your enjoyment.

In 1987, Ross says, "Everyone, this is Chandler," to a group that includes Rachel, in 1993, Chandler says to Rachel, "Excuse me, I seemed to have dropped my ball," and in 1994, Monica introduces Chandler to Rachel by saying, "This is Chandler"
