Life On Mars: Mistake During Episode 4!

There was a pretty funny mistake in episode 4 that I spotted when watching on ABC.com.


At the start of minute 37 in the episode, Sam and Harvey Keitel's character are sitting on the hood of a car and talking, after they. had just found the dead hooker by the water. As they are talking, there is a tall building in the backround that very clearly has the "Verizon" symbol on it. Kinda strange considering that it's supposed to be 1973. It's located right over Sam's left shoulder. Pretty funny. Huge mistake on the studio's part. Wonder if they know about it already.

Another mistake... last week there was that episode with the guy who had a brother that had that brain surgery that made him stupid.
Now the year is supposed to be 1973 right? When the brother talks about how he used to hang out with his little brother before he had his brain all messed up, he says that four years ago before the surgery he used to love watching monday night football together. Thing is, Monday Night football wouldn't have been around back then. First air date was September 12, 1970. So he couldn't have been watching it before the surgery cause it didnt exist.
Odd mistake especially because ABC started Monday Night Football and is the network producing Life on Mars.

It could be late in 1973 and the brother counted 3, 2, 1, 0 as four years? Probably not, though.
