    Sometimes period TV shows and
    movies leave modern-day objects in scenes or feature props that
    aren't appropriate for a certain era. 
  
  
    Recent examples are from
    
    "Game of Thrones" - eagle-eyed fans spotted plastic water
    bottles and modern to-go coffee cups in this fantasy
    drama.
  
  
    In period movies like "Newsies"
    and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" you can see glowing exit signs
    that wouldn't have existed yet.

  Tiny errors show up across all
  genres of TV shows and film, but period pieces certainly receive
  a bit more scrutiny -  it's not always easy to convert a
  modern-day set into a piece of the past.

  The films and television shows we
  know and love pass by dozens of pairs of eyes before they reach
  our devices and screens, but anachronistic mistakes can still
  happen and sometimes
  objects that don't belong make the final cut. 

  From rogue coffee cups making an
  appearance on "Game of Thrones" to video games that wouldn't yet
  exist being featured in "The Hurt Locker," here are a few times
  modern-day items were left in period films and TV shows.
