Actually, New Kids were popular around 1988 so that's not too off. I was in high school in 1988, as a senior and there were people talking about them. As for the different time, it was said they did that to make the show more about the 80's than a particular time.

In last night's episode, Beverly made a reference to My Two Dad's and the agent said that there is an audition for Meatballs II. Meatballs II came out in 1984 while My Two Dad's premiered in 1987.

Also in the episode Adam posed with the communicator from Quantum Leap. QL premiered in 1989.

In last night's episode, Jackie and Adam were wearing Spaceballs and Lost Boys T-shirts. Both movies came out in 1987, while Lainey said she wanted to stay home and watch Dallas and mentioned who shot JR? It happened in the early 80s.

Check out the sets, and they are authentically decorated to suit the 80s. Even in "I Drank the Mold!", when they go into the music store, they had racks of new-looking cassettes and CDs in their original style of casing.
CDs actually came out in 1983.

The "who shot JR cliffhanger" was in September 1980, so the episode REALLY jumped around quite a bit last night. I think 1980 is the earliest it's ever been.

The continuity error that seriously bothered me was Erica singing in the rain juxtaposed with Adam and Pops making a movie on a bright sunny day.

In last night's episode, it was about The Day After and the movie came out in 1983 and Barry even held a TV Guide that plainly said 1983 on the cover and Murray was watching Jeopardy which premiered in 1984 but it had the 1991-1997 set I believe and Wind Beneath my Wings came out in 1997 and also the video that Adam did on Erica had her birth and her birthday parties and such and infancy and stuff and video cameras did not exist in the 1960s and 1970s when Erica was a baby.

Actually, Wind Beneath my Wings came out in 1988, but they were definitely all over the map, especially with The Day After. The Day After was actually shown on ABC on November 20, 1983, not May 3 1980-something. They're really desperate to cover the 80s. And you're completely right about the video cameras. If Erica's 18 in 1980 something, even in 1988, that means she was born in 1970--and there were no personal camcorders available then. BIG mistake!

I'm assuming that the producers and writers have always been intentionally anachronistic (and not necessarily simply lazy) for the sake of being more flexible with the '80s homages/nostalgia. Otherwise, they would more or less be limited by just going by a singular year every season.

Well, the show is clearly set sometime between 1981 and 1989, because Ronald Reagan was the president during those years, and Barry dropped a mention that he was the president at their "current" time.

That's what I meant. I was thinking about Jeopardy

In the season finale: Adam was holding a copy of Police Academy 4 which was a rerelease from the late 90s and he made the comment about not remembering years and all that stuff.

Also, in the ep where Mr. Glasscock showed the commercial from ICS, Sally Struthers basically refilmed the commercial and it showed Sally Struthers the way she looks now. They could have cut a commercial of hers from the 80s from YouTube and put it on a disc and put it on a VHS tape.

Also in that particular episode, Adam and his new girlfriend Jackie go to the theater to see Police Academy 5, which was first released on March 19, 1988. And then in a later scene, Erica and Geoff are playing with their Game Boys, which were released in North America on July 31, 1989.

On last night's episode, the VCR in Doc's classroom was a late 90s model.

Not only that, but Barry was celebrating his 16th birthday in the first episode of the series, three years ago. That would make him 19 and just a senior in high school? Pity poor Troy Gentile, who has to shave his chest AND his back in order to appear younger, but he can't do much about his rapidly receding hairline.

They used shots from George Segal's "King Rat" last night, which is the first movie I ever saw him in.
