'Bridgerton' fans spot modern-day blunder in opening moments of hit Netflix period drama

Eagle-eyed fans discovered a modern flaw in the opening moments of the Netflix drama "Bridgerton".
Based on the first of eight Julia Quinn novels, the hot romance has proven a must-see for many since its Christmas debut and has been extended for a second Netflix season.
While the story of sex and scandal takes place in the Regency era in London at the beginning of the 19th century, a yellow-painted line of traffic was free on the road, used for dramatic purposes by horse-drawn carriages.
Just as fans noticed the Starbucks trophy and then the water bottle in the "Game of Thrones" finale, the "Bridgerton" fans drew the line on that mistake (it's at 3:20 in the episode).
"Given that the characters were still riding horse-drawn carriages, there was no way the recording would have been historically accurate or, as we can assume, intentional," the Independent wrote when it first came across the "Bridgerton" spot reported.

"Really enjoying Bridgerton, but with the technology available to filmmakers these days, a yellow line?" wrote a Twitter user.
"Two episodes in #Bridgerton and I've spotted a single yellow line and manhole cover for telecommunications so far. I didn't know the 19th century British were such pioneers ..." wrote another on Twitter.

Another Twitter user pointed out, among other things, "a single parking restriction for the yellow line and a parking sign on a lamppost".

USA TODAY has reached out to Netflix for a comment.
Show artist Chris Van Dusen appeared on the "Today" show Thursday to discuss what fans can expect from the second season.
"We'll start filming later this spring in London and we're all so excited," said Van Dusen. "I know the cast can't wait to come back to this, and neither do I."
