Eagled-eyed fans spot error in Kaleidoscope episode

Eagled-eyed fans spot error in Kaleidoscope episode

There are multiple ways to watch Netflix's mind-bending new drama Kaleidoscope, but some particularly eagle-eyed fans have still managed to spot an error in the series.

Obviously any perceptive person can spot a blunder if they're paying enough attention, but managing to spot one while simultaneously trying to keep track of a timeline that constantly changes just makes it all the more impressive.

The error can be seen in the episode 'Green' - aka, the one featuring a reference to the band that created Harry Styles; One Direction. Of course, fans of one of the world's biggest boybands weren't going to overlook the little details, and quickly spotted the issue with the ticket featured in the episode.

'Green' takes place seven years before the heist that Kaleidoscope centres around, when we see one of the criminals, Judy (Rosaline Elbay), attempt to smuggle sim cards to her boyfriend, Stan Loomis (Peter Mark Kendall) in prison.

When Judy is stopped by one of the guards, she bribes her with tickets to a One Direction concert.

Unfortunately, the concert just so happens to be dated after the band went on hiatus in 2015, with the ticket reading 6 March, 2016.

Fans obviously recognised this error, given that the news of One Direction going their separate ways was probably a monumental and heartbreaking moment in many of their lives.

After spotting the date on the ticket, one Kaleidoscope viewer wrote: "watching kaleidoscope and the woman is bribing the police officer with one direction tickets but please the 2016?"

Another viewer took the scrutiny a step further by taking note of the venue on the ticket - Madison Square Garden in New York City. However, the band only performed there once, in 2012. Not that they would have been together for their 2016 appearance anyway, but it's still worth noting.

"WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT ONE DIRECTION TOUR TICKETS IN 2016 MENTIONED IN THE NETFLIX SERIES #KALEIDOSCOPE !!!???," the viewer wrote.

"THE FACT THAT 1D WENT ON HIATUS IN 2015 AND WEREN'T EVEN TOGETHER IN 2016!!??? ALSO THEY PLAYED MSG ONLY ONCE IN 2012 WTFF. IT HURTS BEING A DIRECTIONER," they continued.

The fact viewers managed to spot the blunder is evidence of how much attention Kaleidoscope requires, because the order of events can change depending on how the episodes appear to each viewer.

Rather than numbers, the episodes are identified by colours, all leading to the heist itself. It's not a series you can stick on in the background while making dinner, but it's definitely one worth your time.
