Goofs
When Ron and Veronica are running on the beach, there is a see-through full-battened windsurfing sail in the background. These were introduced in around 1988. In 1980, the sail would have been triangular and opaque (same as sailboat sails).

Jet Airliner is credited as written by The Steve Miller Band when in fact it was written by Paul Pena and just performed by The Steve Miller Band.

The news headlines running at the bottom of the screen during Ron's broadcast do not run in real time - they pause for many seconds during cuts then continue again when cutting back to Ron broadcasting.
